The Real Housewives of Orange County's whine tour of Napa continued Monday night, with Shannon Beador and Meghan King Edmonds battling over – of all things – charity.

"You can't insinuate I'm not charitable," said Beador, who upset the new Housewife when she abruptly ended a call and didn't return a text from Edmonds asking questions about a charity event she was hosting. "Who do you think you are, Miss 30-Year-Old?"

"She thinks I'm trying to paint her as a bad person," said Edmonds, who then apologized to Beador. "I'm really sorry … I feel awful."

"I felt completely ambushed," replied Beador, upset anew. "I bend over backwards for my friends."

But she might need it to pay off the cabinets in her new mansion.

"It's like a prenup without a nup," she said.

Tamra Judge underwent her fifth boob job – but this time without any wives around to support her.

"I have this love-hate relationship with my boobs," said Judge. "I want them big, I want them small, I want them up, I want them down."

Bali was a barrel of monkeys for The Real Housewives of Orange County on Monday until the women turned on Tamra Barney and she ended up with a big monkey on her back.

"I love that Bali is known for being a spiritual destination," said Shannon Beador at an ancient temple.

But it wasn't so spiritual for Barney or Vicki Gunvalson, who was surprised when she was splashed with holy water.
