The Real Housewives of Orange County held a hoedown Monday night, but a mechanical bull nearly got the best of Tamra Barney while a raging bull (Heather Dubrow) locked horns with Shannon Beador.
Dubrow held a Western-themed party to celebrate the groundbreaking of the oceanfront lot for her new mansion, and the wives traded in their bling and Beamers for boots, cowboy hats and a ride on a mechanical bull.
"Leave it to Heather to make dirt look great," said "Tammy Sue" Barney. "She's brought in sets to make it look like a Western."

The Real Housewives of Orange County celebrated the holidays Monday night, and the Cali Christmas was especially frosty between original housewife Vicki Gunvalson and new addition Lizzie Rovsek.
"Izzie … Lizzie …" Gunvalson said to Rovsek, as the housewives took a limo to a holiday dinner.
"You can call me Elizabeth since you can't keep it straight," said Rovsek, none too amused by Gunvalson's instant attack.

It was perhaps the most awkward date night in The Real Housewives of Orange County" history Monday night as Shannon Beador and her husband, David, attempted to rekindle the romance in their marriage.
"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."

The Real Housewives of Orange County celebrated "Friendsgiving" on Monday night, but Vicki Gunvalson and her daughter were not breaking any wishbones after Gunvalson admitted she had gotten back together with boyfriend Brooks.
"She's just pushed me aside [for Brooks], and it's hard," Briana said.
"He didn't deserve to be annihilated by you," Gunvalson said, referring to last year's reunion, in which her daughter accused Brooks of leaving a message instructing her husband to hit her to keep her in line.
"You've told me he's verbally abusive," Briana continued.

The Real Housewives of Orange County celebrated Halloween on Monday night's episode, and the scariest part wasn't that Vicki Gunvalson admitted she still loved on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks – it was that she actually liked the newest Housewife.
"Oh, joy," Gunvalson stated when Tamra Barney told her that Shannon Beador would be attending her Halloween party. "Another new bitch I gotta like."
But holistic Housewife Beador (who always keeps nine lemons in a basket for good feng shui energy) made a good impression on Gunvalson, who requires three things from friends.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is speaking out after ex-husband Simon Barney alleged in court documents that the reality star has been neglectful when it comes to caring for their three children.
"I am saddened by the false stories my ex-husband has released," Tamra tells PEOPLE exclusively. "He has no foundation to his allegations and in my opinion will do anything to destroy me. Unfortunately, he is hurting our children and my family in the process."
In the documents filed March 28 and obtained by RadarOnline, Simon alleges that "especially in recent times, Tamra has been very neglectful in her care for the children. This has resulted in the children not getting prompt medical care, nutritional meals, hygienic care, and deterioration in their school work and attendance."

"If he really, really thinks he needs a baby, like if he wakes up [and wants a child] in the next year," Barney says. "I'm not going to be 70 years old and going to [drop the kids off] at preschool. I'm not doing it."
