Not much has changed as The Real Housewives of Orange County moves on to its second episode. Gretchen and Tamra still despise each other while the rest of the housewives are caught in between the mess.  At least, the heated exchange briefly comes to an end as Tamra leaves the dinner party and takes Vicki with her. Oh and both Tamra and Gretchen declare that they will never be friends again!

While that settles, The Real Housewives of Orange County shifts its focus on Gretchen's tanning party--- which is her way of relaxing, hanging out with her "real" friends and a good excuse to get naked. Slade kicks off the naked party by taking off all his clothes inside the tanning both but leaving a sock on his penis--- a creepy gesture that seems to entertain the women, especially Gretchen, who simply adores Slade's sense of humor. But Slade isn't the only one who's showing off some skin.

Lynn gets naked as well, taking her top off since she doesn't want any tan lines. It's a good thing Gretchen was able to hold Lynne's breasts to prevent them from getting exposed on cameras though the size of Gretchen's hands weren't enough to fully cover Lynne's enormous melons.

Meanwhile, at the other side of the camp, Tamra reveals to Vicki that she and Simon are pondering on moving. Evidently, money issues have taken a toll on Tamra's marriage though we all know that her marital problems may have something to do with how Simon treats her.  

Like Tamra, Jeana is going through a difficult time as well. The real estate business is not doing well these days and she may have to sell her own house just to make ends meet.

Lynne, on the other hand, takes her daughter Raquel to a plastic surgeon for a nose job consultation. She's actually pondering on getting a face lift herself--- which doesn't really sit well with Alexa after she gets a little jealous because mommy and sis are getting something done. Alexa feels that her family is getting more and more vain and materialistic but wonders on what she's going to get for herself. Like mother, like daughter.
