Real Housewives of O.C.: A Dustup at the Races
Gretchen and Tamra were back on good terms after Tamra apologized for making Gretchen cry during a dinner when she questioned her for celebrating the Fourth of July while her fianc Jeff was in the hospital. But the women got competitive again over the pink hats when Gretchen claimed all of them for herself.
At the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, "where the surf meets the turf," Gretchen wasn't wearing a pink hat and Tamra immediately took note. She also commented on how Lynne and her husband Frank were not like they rest of the Housewives: "They remind me of 1970 surfers. They're so mellow."
Pretty soon, there were two groups: Vicki and Tamra and their dates at one table, and Jeana, Gretchen and Lynne and their dates at another. When Jeana and Gretchen go to place their bets, Lynne is left alone with Vicki and Tamra deliberately ignoring her. "I just wanted to be friends with these ladies," Lynne said. "I don't know what their problem was."
Later, Lynne's table ordered food. Vicki and Tamra, who were obsessed about which table was having more fun, called them "chubby" and gave a toast to "skinny b------."
Tamra also took issue with Gretchen for socializing with the in the box next to them. "She loves to be the center of attention," she said. "Maybe she wasn't breastfed as a kid."
Donn, Vicki's husband, also felt the wrath of Vicki when she said, "You're Vicki Gunvalson's husband. I'm sure you have a name but whatever."
The women finally came together down by the rail and the show ended happily (sort of) with a photo opp of the ladies in their hats.
