‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’ Finale Recap: Tamra Judge Calls Vicki Gunvalson a ‘Bitch’ as Their Friendship Ends

Bye, Vicki? Vicki Gunvalson was left with few friends besides Kelly Dodd after Tamra Judge‘s celebration party during the season 11 finale of The Real Housewives of Orange County on Monday, October 31. It seemed like the OG Housewife could totally be out of the picture for season 12, and if she is, we will miss her crazy antics. Meanwhile, Meghan Edmonds found out the sex of her baby and was contemplating leaving Orange County for good! Watch all the juiciest moments in the video above, and read our recap below!

It’s a Girl!

While visiting family in St. Louis, Meghan and Jim learned they are having a baby girl. Even though she seemed kind of upset that she isn’t giving Jim a boy, Meghan claimed she’s excited. Awkward. However, Meghan revealed at the end of the episode that she might want to move back to St. Louis with her family: “If this is the kind of example my child has to look forward to in the O.C., I don’t know if I want to be around for that.”

Vicki and Kelly Are Not Welcome

Tamra invited all of the women on the Ireland trip to her fitness celebration party, but that was before all of the craziness on the bus went down. “I want to kill her, and I’m the Christian,” Tamra said about Vicki before the party even started. Shannon Beador wasn’t too thrilled about Vicki coming, either, and predicted there would be a “potential war zone” at the party.

Vicki prepared an apology letter and gave it to Shannon when she arrived to the party, claiming she was taking “full responsibility” for her actions. However, when Vicki handed Shannon the card, Shannon was angry that Vicki couldn’t “woman up” and say it to her face. All of the women tried to avoid Kelly and Vicki as much as possible when they arrived to the party, but who could really blame them?

The Gift of Drama

Tamra tried to break the ice at the party by giving each girl a shirt that showed their “mugshot” and a “crime” they were convicted of. She used the gifts as a big “f–k-you to Vicki” by giving her one that just said “lying” on it. Vicki pretended to not be bothered by the shirt, but said on the side that it was “damaging” and going “in the garbage.” Who knows if Tamra meant for the gifts to be funny, or if she expected the drama to start then and there, but either way, after the presents were unwrapped, all hell broke loose, and we were living for it.

Heather Speaks Her Mind!

After Kelly decided to address the “elephant in the room” by confronting Shannon, we totally were relating to David Beador when he asked if he could go grab his beer before the fighting really began. Heather Dubrow decided to speak her mind about Kelly, saying she was clearly “very insecure.” Kelly said she felt “backed into a corner,” but Heather wasn’t buying it and said she “really wanted to like [Kelly].” After they were finished jumping down each other’s throats, Vicki began to walk away, but the drama obviously couldn’t end there.

“Don’t move!” Heather scolded at Vicki because she was not done sharing her thoughts yet. Tamra decided to join in and told Vicki that her lies and rumors would not be tolerated anymore. She went even further by saying Vicki doesn’t “exist in her world” anymore. As expected, Vicki tried to leave to party and avoid the confrontation, but Shannon still had some things to say. Thank God for never ending drama!

Vicki Leaves — Maybe for Good?

Shannon was not going to let Vicki storm off without telling her how pathetic her attempted apology letter was. Shannon would never let Vicki get away with involving her children in the gossip about Shannon allegedly getting abused by her husband. Shannon told Vicki they had a great time in Ireland before she realized she was “back in bed with the devil.” It looked like this was one friendship that would never be repaired, but who knows what the O.C. women have up their sleeves.

Vicki tried to leave for the millionth time, but her daughter, Briana Culberson, wanted to amend the strife between her mom and Tamra. Vicki apologized to Tamra about all of the gossiping, but when she didn’t deny the rumors she spread about Shannon and her husband, Tamra was totally done. “You’re a bitch!” Tamra yelled as she walked away. Who knows if Vicki will return next season after all of this bloodshed! We’ll just have to wait for season 12 to see.

Tell Us: Will Vicki return for season 12? And did she cross the line?

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
