‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ preview: Tamra Barney, Alexis Bellino keep fighting

Real Housewives of Orange CountyLet’s make sure the timeline is rather clear here: We are about to be five episodes into this season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” and the storyline regarding Tamra Barney’s gym opening is still somehow going on. If you remember, this was talked about near the early part of this season, and for whatever reason we are still feeling the aftermath in one way or another. The ladies are all still at war in separate factions, with Tamra leading one and Alexis Bellino (and her near-constant bullying accusations leading the other).

Based on the synopsis for Monday’s episode alone, it looks like Alexis is going to play the “bullied” card again. Not only that, but there are some other interesting story-lines happening with Gretchen Rossi and Vicki Gunvalson:

“When Tamra explodes and kicks Alexis out of her party, all hell breaks loose. While Heather and Gretchen are happy to see Alexis go, Vicki is torn between her alliance with Alexis and her renewed friendship with former BFF Tamra. Alexis screams that she’s being bullied again, but Lydia disagrees. In the aftermath, Gretchen heads to New York to support Slade as he deals with the hardest challenge he’s ever faced. Lydia encourages a reluctant Alexis to reach out to her enemies and make amends, while Vicki’s son-in-law drops a bomb about her boyfriend Brooks.”

Rather than focusing on any one person, the first promo for the episode below does a great job of giving you a little bit of a taste at what each of the characters is going through, including some of the people who are being impacted by the drama (such as Heather) rather than just the ones causing it.
