‘Real Housewives of Orange County’: Gretchen Rossi among mud run victims

Gretchen hurt her ankle.

Tuesday night’s new episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” really ended up teaching us one thing above all else — running in mud is just as dangerous and as messy as we would have thought it would be.

Before we even get too deep into the details, we’ll just start things off by saying that you have to give Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow some credit for even going through with this. For one thing, it’s for charity — for another, it’s a chance to see these wealthy ladies step out of their comfort zone and do something exciting.

Unfortunately, the mud run itself did not turn out to be as hilarious as we or the ladies hoped. Gretchen ended up spraining her ankle during the proceedings, and then Tamra’s then-boyfriend (and current fiance) Eddie Judge ended up breaking his finger. Since when did a mud run turn into an NFL game?

Away from mud, this episode was really all about relationships between friends and between lovers — whether it be Alexis complaining that Gretchen didn’t speak with her sooner about her nose surgery or Vicki gushing over how in love she is with Brooks. There wasn’t really too much drama here, unless you count Tamra finalizing her divorce to be dramatic (and in this case, it really wasn’t since we all saw this coming).

After watching what some of the ladies (and the men) went through this week, would you ever consider doing a mud run in a million years?
