Our favorite drama queen Lauri Peterson is at it again and feeling the need to tell Vicki Gunvalson some nasty gossip about Brooks Ayers is in front of all the ladies on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
We see the ladies going wedding dress shopping with Tamra Barney to help her pick out the perfect dress. Much to a Gretchen Rossi’s dismay, frenemy Alexis Bellino was invited and Alexis also has no love lost for her one time BFF Gretchen, saying the most hilarious line in her interview, “I wish Gretchen would eat some of her own make up so she could be pretty on the inside again.”
With no wedding date set, Tamra says that she will wear this dress she chooses every night to bed until her fiance Eddie Judge sets a date. With that goal in mind, the ladies start looking through tons of sparkly, slinky confections and as the champagne is popped and the ladies recline, Tamra comes out modeling a bombshell dress to which she is told, “You look like Pamela Anderson” and another one chimes in “You look like bridal barbie.” (All meant to be the highest of compliments, I am sure).
Alexis says, “There is something so elegant and sweet and innocent about someone in a wedding gown. Even Tamra!” While Tamra is trying on more dresses, Lydia asks Vicki about the state of her relationship with Brooks Ayers.
In last week’s episode, we saw Brooks and Vicki leave Lydia’s salsa party together and Vicki tells all the women that something bad went down afterwards and Brooks ended everything. “I don’t fit his mold” Vicki says. “His biggest love language is quality time and that doesn’t work for me anymore.” Circling like a shark smelling blood, this was just the opportunity that Lauri was looking for to tell Vicki, “I heard some things, It’s really uncomfortable information. He’s dating one of my daughters friends.”
At first Vicki seems unfazed, saying it’s okay because they broke up and they each should be dating other people. But after a hot minute she has a change of heart and wants to know “who this bitch is.” Lauri is all too happy to divulge that she is (horrors to this peroxided group) a young brunette! “She is under 21, I know they’re together. She’s been with him, breakfast, and dinner, and so forth.”
Still not done dropping the juicy gossip, she has one last piece of information that stuns Vicki. Lauri says she has viewed a tape … of Brooks’ current new gal pal in a porn video. Vicki is in complete denial that Brooks would do such a thing, but then she just dissolves into tears.
Meanwhile, Tamra has found the dress of her dreams, all $10,000 of it, and she is crying with joy. The group toasts to a happy marriage and Vicki runs off crying because of the news she heard about Brooks. Lauri apologizes to the group and says she didn’t mean to hurt Vicki, but she thought it was important to tell her.
We should mention that in real life, Tamra got married on June 15 in a beautiful ceremony.
