Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County kicks off with Shannon and Vicki at Shannon’s acupuncture Doctor. Vicki has never had acupuncture before, but Shannon is certain that it will help her de-stress. So, Vicki lays down while Dr. Moon fills her back with needles and she screams in pain. She seems to be more stressed than when she started.

Heather is planning a party to celebrate the “breaking ground” of the plot of land they bought where she and her husband plan to build a house. She meets her party-planner Nicole at the empty plot of land and shows her where she wants to have the tent set up, the buffet, the mechanical bull, and everything else she “needs for a hoe-down.”

Vicki and Shannon head to a salon to get their nails done and they run in to Tamra. They all gossip about their issues with Heather, and then Tamra announces she made a new friend named Lizzie and she thinks they should all hang out with her and get to know her.

Shannon and her daughters Adeline, Stella, Sofia, and her nanny are dragging out all of the Christmas decorations so they can decorate the house. Shannon confesses that she has spent over $20,000 on Christmas decorations over the course of the years. Christmas is a huge event in their house, they have two Christmas trees.

Tamra is working with her son Ryan at the gym. Tamra is annoyed because every night she takes all of the gym towels home and washes them at her house and brings them back. She tells Ryan he needs to order a washer and dryer for the gym and have them installed. He argues that Eddie told him not to, but Tamra over rules and tells him to go ahead and install the washer and dryer and not to tell Eddie.

Shannon shows up at Vicki’s office with her Feng Shui expert Elaine, she wants to help her bring the energy up in the office. Elaine informs her that Feng Shui is “not magic and not religious.” Elaine sits down with a diagram and shows Vicki all of the changes she needs to make to the office in order to improve her energy, including hanging photos of herself, setting out oranges, and buying lamps and mirrors.

All of the housewives meet up for a girls’ night out, and hop into a limo to go out to dinner. Tamra brings along the new girl Lizzie, and she immediately clashes with Vicki. Vicki thikns her name is dumb, and she hates pageant girls, and she thinks Lizzie is lying about being a valedictorian. Once they arrive at the restaurant, Heather, Shannon, and Vicki begin arguing over who gets to sit in what chair at the table. Shannon is furious, she wants to know who made Heather boss. To make matters worse, Heather won’t stop joking about how “scary angry” Shannon is. Shannon comes to the conclusion she “isn’t a fan of Heather.”

Vicki decides to order every one at dinner tequila to calm everyone down. The waiter brings everyone a shot but Lizzie, and Lizzie is furious- she is certain that Vicki intentionally told the waiter not to bring her shots. Lizzie and Tamra head to the bathroom to gossip about Vicki.

It looks like the battle lines have been drawn, none of the Housewives like Heather, Vicki does not like Lizzie, and it appears Tamra has kicked Vicki to the curb, and sided with the new girl Lizzie.
