If you thought season 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County was ugly, you haven’t seen anything yet.
In this first look at the season’s three-part reunion special, exclusive to E! News, there is clearly no love lost between many of the ladies of the O.C. and the teams have been chosen. Sitting on one side of Andy Cohen: Heather Dubrow, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador. And on the other: Vicki Gunvalson, Kelly Dodd, and Meghan King Edmonds.
“I think the reunion is always a good chance to clear the air, make amends,” Heather says backstage as she’s getting ready. She’s been watching the same show as we have, right? Just checking.
Things kick off on Monday, Nov. 7 when the women come together to grill Vicki on her tumultuous year that’s seen her go from pariah, to friend, and back to pariah once again. Tamra will talk religion and her fitness competition, while Meghan opens up about her plight to get pregnant. When talk turns to Shannon’s ’70s party, newbie Kelly gets the chance to stand her ground.
In part two, Kelly is taken to task for her behavior throughout much of her inaugural season, with Heather going head-to-head with her over the c-word heard ’round the world at the infamous sushi party. Shannon dishes about her vow renewal and her complicated relationship with her mother-in-law, while Vicki’s daughter (and honorary Housewife) Briana visits to talk about her mom’s rocky relationship with the truth, while making a revelation of her own.
In part three, things conclude with a crescendo when the women recall their traumatic experience in Glamis, Meghan’s unsympathetic behavior towards Vicki in the immediate aftermath, and the Irish Airport Bus Ride From Hell. You know the one. Shannon will find herself pushed past her breaking point, and you know what that means. We’ve got a walk off.
“My husband did not beat me,” she cries.
“I have proof,” Vicki replies. Oh boy.
We’ll leave you with this final, magical quote from the OG of the O.C. herself. “You don’t like me? Bye-bye, Felicia! Get off my show!”
The three-part Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special airs Mondays, Nov. 7, Nov. 14, and Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
