‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ preview: The precursor to Ireland

OC -We’re getting set to head to Ireland on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” a little bit later this season, and just like any other trip, there are a few things that you can expect there: Wacky moments, a few embarrassing clips that will serve as good fodder for the reunion, and people inevitably screaming at each other.

So how is the decision made to even go there, at least as presented on the show? Well, the synopsis below for Monday’s episode offers up a slight clue, while at the same time also giving you a little bit of news surrounding all of the other crazy events coming up:

“Meghan throws a party to celebrate the grand opening of her candle store. Tensions ignite as Vicki threatens to expose a secret about Shannon that leaves all the ladies confused. As Kelly and Michael try to navigate their tumultuous marriage, Meghan and Jimmy try to get a handle on her highs and lows of pregnancy. Meanwhile, Heather throws a fancy party filled with mixed emotions and cocktails to celebrate the release of her book; where Vicki and Shannon finally confront one another and Meghan proposes a trip to Ireland to investigate her heritage.”

Basically, everybody’s got a lot going on, and for a few of the Housewives there may be a certain comfort in having a variety of other events happening to distract them from some of the drama. Granted, of course there’s also a party coming up, and we’ll wait and see what happens there.
