Now that Jeana's officially gone, we're down to Tamra, Vicki, Gretchen, Lynne and Alexis, who all have their fair share of crazy antics and domestic drama. This week on The Real Housewives of Orange County, however, the men take center stage.

Vicki decides to throw a typical Southern California barbecue at her house, and invites some of her friends, including Tamra's family. It doesn't exactly go as planned since Ryan, Tamra's 21-year-old son from her first marriage, and Simon, Tamra's second husband, are not on friendly terms. Evidently, they haven't spoken to each other in six months and now, they're just trying to avoid each other in every way possible.

Tamra, who's obviously caught in between Ryan and Simon, tries to resolve the issues of the men in her life but only ends up getting emotionally hurt. Because while Simon wants Ryan to apologize to him on Facebook (because that's where Ryan allegedly wrote some stuff about him), Ryan doesn't want anything to do with Simon.

Meanwhile, the summer barbecue isn't all about man-drama. It's actually about Vicki playing matchmaker to Chris, the son of her insurance colleague, and her daughter Briana, who is trying to recover from her latest breakup. As for the rest of the O.C. housewives, Gretchen flies to Michigan and Lynne settles into her new home.
