"When your kids walk out the door and you don't know your husband, you're in trouble," said Beador, whose husband whisked her away to a hotel for a night away from their kids for the first time in their 13-year marriage. "It's like living with a stranger."
While at dinner, David tried to sweet talk his better half by discussing – wait for it – her need for "enhancement."
"You breastfed for two years," he said. "They just need to be firmed up."
"It's not gonna happen," she replied, before turning serious and tearing up. "I hate having to fight for my husband's attention … Sometimes I just don't feel like you make me a priority. It hurts."
But her husband finally got something right, surprising Beador after dinner with a trail of rose petals in their hotel room that led to a heart made of rose petals in the middle of their bed.
Now it was Beador's turn to ruin the mood.
"I wish I was drunker," she said, taking a shot straight from a bottle, before the two finally got into a romantic rhythm. "We need to put out the 'Do Not Disturb' sign."
And a beautiful new RHOC was introduced at an ugly sweater party.
"I'm gonna show up ugly … with a frumpy grandma sweater on?" asked Lizzie Rovsek, a former beauty queen and Miss Kentucky. "No!"
Instead she made a big impression, falling immediately after entering the party, but that didn't hinder the housewives' first impressions of the mother of two, former valedictorian, daughter of a Harvard physicist and designer/owner of her own swimwear line.
"She's a total package," said Heather Dubrow, adding, while staring at the flowers on her sweater, "I'm trying not to stare at your poinsettia."
"News flash," said Rovsek. "Girls with big boobs know they have big boobs. I have since fifth grade."
But will Vicki Gunvalson, the original housewife, like the new girl on the block?
If next week's preview is any indication, the Magic 8 Ball says, "No."
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
