Tonight’s episode begins now – Refresh Page for Updates

Vicki’s home renovation is just about finish. She managed to erase all traces of her now ex-husband, Don. So she’s excited and wants to celebrate with a party. Lydia and Alexis are over at her house to help out with her plans when Vicki picks the perfect time to find out what Slade has been saying about her. The girls listen in on an recording from his radio show. It’s the ones he did so soon after Vicki’s surgery.
He basically insults her without ever using her name. Vicki is mad and the girls are mad for her. However Vicki says she’s taking the higher ground(we’ll see) and inviting Slade anyway to her get together.

Meanwhile Slade is being set up by Gretchen for her epic marriage proposal. It starts off with his co-host playing Gretchen’s song followed by helicopter ride to take him to a rooftop where Gretchen, all decked out, will be waiting for him. After he accepts her proposal she has a romantic dinner laid out on the top floor.

She’s invited close family and friends that will support her and Slade. What she really means is none of the other housewives will be there. However Gretchen is getting nervous. She says it’s because of what she went through with Jack. She gets some helpful conversation with her mom and that settles her.

Once he gets there she apologizes for doubting last year and proposes. He of course said yes.

Tamra is currently preparing to open her gym. She probably doesn’t even know about Gretchen’s big announcement. Surprisingly the first person to come out and support Tamra’s newest venture is Alexis.

Tonight is Vicki’s Winter Wonderland. She doesn’t want dram and yet she knows drama follows her. Also her son-in-law is home for the weekend. Poor guy, wrong weekend!

That doesn’t stop everyone saying they don’t want drama and heading to Vicki’s party with nothing but drama.

Heather is still mad With Gretchen.

Gretchen is mad with pretty much everyone.

Lydia is mad with Slade.

Terri wants to see his friend Slade.

Alexis and her husband are quiet for now.

Another thing everyone can agree on is that they love the decorations. If only that’s all they could do. Look at the decorations. Before long they realize Gretchen isn’t there and wonders who has talk to her. The closest they got was Alexis who had an argument with her several days ago. This starts a near frenzy in which many expressed their disappointment with Gretchen. They only stop once as Gretchen arrives with her secret fiancée with her.
