RHOC Recap: A Case Of The Vickis [Episode 17]

The OG of the OC's "heart attack" was in full swing after Bravo left us on hold with to be continued last week.  All the girls were rushing in and out of Vicki's room while the Icelandic paramedics tried to get a proper diagnosis on Vicki's heart problem. Peggy was being super clingy and controlling to try and take care of Vicki which pissed Kelly right off. If there's one thing you don't wanna do, it's telling Kelly Dodd what to do.

While all the ladies were anxiously waiting outside her room, Vicki emerged covered in a bed sheet while they wheeled her through the hotel on a stretcher. What the Michael Jackson is going on? Vicki is the definition of EXTRA! As she was taken to the hospital. the other ladies were starving back at the hotel. Meghan and Kelly went to get some food when Lydia wanted to go the hospital. Kelly established they would go on shifts to the hospital because she needed to eat! Shannon and Tamra joined them for dinner and they gave zero fucks about Vicki's hospital visit. Shannon would of rathered rip her own fingernail off than see her arch enemy in hospital. At this point it was pretty obvious that Vicki's diagnosis was exhaustion and not a heart attack. Lydia was pissed that no one went with her to the hospital but why would 6 girls need to sit around a waiting room while Vicki is getting treated for her munchausen. Sorry Yolanda!

The girls were all eating and drinking while Peggy was up in her room calling Diko who told her to get a taxi to see Vicki. All of a sudden Peggy says she is going to the hospital because Diko told her to and she didn't want to disrespect her husband. Can she hear herself? Diko is back in Orange County selling car wheels to rich people, he doesn't care if you visit Vicki or not. Peggy ended up leaving which was perfect because it let the other girls talk trash about her while they finished their meals. It was pretty clear at this point that Kelly was OVER Peggy bossing her around which only foreshadowed what was to come. Can we just establish that none of these women actually like Peggy.

Over at the hospital Peggy and Lydia were with Vicki when she got the news that her "heart attack" was really elevated blood pressure. Even the Icelandic people could tell how extra Vicki is, so all the hospital drama was for nothing. We also go several flashbacks about how Shannon and Meghan wouldn't see Vicki in the hospital last year. Oh my god! How does Vicki always end up in a hospital when these girls travel.

I've been watching Vicki Gunvalson on TV for 12 seasons and it's pretty obvious how her brain works. I think she thought if she had a life threatening thing happen to her then Tamra would say "life is too short" and put their beef behind her, which kind of worked. Good job Vic! When the girls got back from the hospital Meghan, Kelly, Tamra and Shannon were hammered! They presented Vicki with her long awaited casserole which I hope she was grateful for. I LOVE a casserole flashback! The girls were all drinking and the party continued in Shannon's room. Hours passed and Vicki was still eating her casserole so either it wasn't good or Vicki just doesn't like casserole as much as she says she does.

In Shannon's room where they got filmed on an iPhone or something. That isn't a bad thing because these OC girls do their best work on an iPhone, remember Ireland. The drama really unfolded and Tamra and Vicki had their conversation that was YEARS in the making. Keep in mind Tamra was shit faced at this point. The topic went back to the Eddie's rumours and how Tamra hated Brooks. Kelly wouldn't stop interrupting which set Tamra OFF!  I haven't seen her yell like that in a long time. However Vicki apologised and Tamra was done. Vicki obviously doesn't think she's done anything wrong but she was elated that she was finally off the hook. They should have got drunk and talked it out months ago! Of course they aren't best friends and Tamra still knows what kind of person is, but they can still woop it up on vacation! This is what we want! But this was not what Shannon wanted. Without Tamra, Shannon has no real allies and she DOES NOT want to forgive Vicki, that is very clear. In real life you would be able to distance yourself from someone like that but in reality TV world your stuck with them until they get fired or a spinoff.
