Last night Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Lynne Curtin and Alexis Bellino gathered together one last time before the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County officially wrapped up. It's the much-awaited reunion show and like past seasons, host Andy Cohen sat down with the dolled up ladies to ask questions from viewers across the county. Unfortunately, nothing explosive and mind-blowing happened, at least not in the first half of the two-part special. But the episode did treat viewers with plenty of scenes to poke fun at and here are my favorites:

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Tamra's a "Free Bitch"

Tamra's words, not mine. She was given the chance to talk about her divorce with Simon by describing her current status. However, Tamra's nemesis since last season, Gretchen, couldn't help but stir up more drama by accusing Tamra of turning her split into a publicity stunt "because there was so much talking to the press." Of course, Tamra denied the whole thing. She also denied cheating on her husband though she seems to have a slightly different definition of cheating.  

The Real Housewives of Orange County's Tamra: I Did Not Cheat!


"No, I didn't cheat on him," Tamra said. "About three years ago, when I got on the show, every ex-boyfriend, friend, cousin, relative that you don't even talk to, started calling. I talked to an ex-boyfriend, over a course of a year, off and on. Was I wrong to do it? Absolutely. It's never right to talk to another man when you're married. And I totally take the blame for that 100 percent. I did not see him, sleep with him, date him, nothing."

Karma is a Bitch

While Tamra had a different version of cheating, Gretchen didn't know the meaning of karma. When Andy Cohen asked Gretchen if she felt that Tamra is getting what she deserves after Tamra accused her of cheating on Jeff last year, here's what Gretchen had to say: "It's not about karma for me. It's just about when people are a certain way, things are going to end a certain way for them." As I was laughing my socks off, Cohen was quick to point out that's exactly what karma is. And then Gretchen proved why there's never a dull moment when she's around even though she's not exactly the brightest bulb on the porch by saying, "Then you guys think of karma. But karma to me is wishing ill on somebody, and I don't wish ill on Tamra...Then if that's the definition, then yes."

10 Most Unforgettable Moments of Season 5


God Approves of The Real Housewives of Orange County and Plastic Surgery

At least, that's what Alex wants to believe. When Andy Cohen asked what she thinks God would say about the fifth season, she said, "I think He approves. Let me say this. I don't think God disapproves of Housewives of Orange County. I think he wishes we obviously would straighten up a few of our things and the things we say."

Alexis also revealed that almost everyone in her church congregation is praying for her family and have fasted for them because "they feel bad for how much I'm getting beat up on this show."

The best thing about this segment, however, is the housewives' reactions:

Lynne: "Wow, they must think you're really bad. They're starving for ya."

Vicki: "But this is an elective process. You don't have to do the show. This is an elective process. But you hate it and don't want to do it."

Alexis: "I love it."

Tamra: She rolls her eyes and then denies rolling her eyes.

Apparently, The Real Housewives of Orange County's fifth season isn't the only thing that God approves. According to Alexis, God isn't against having plastic surgery once in a blue moon.  "My personal opinion is, God doesn't want you to be unhappy. And as long as you're not obsessed with it, and I'm not under the knife every week. I've had one surgery in my entire life, and I don't think that that's a bad thing."

Again, Andy Cohen wasted no time in pointing out that Alexis has two breast augmentations. Alexis then acknowledged her implants and said that she''ll "just have to take that up with God."
