Months after she confirmed her return on Watch What Happens Live, Tamra is being joined by Vicki Gunvalson, as well as newbies Jennifer Pedranti and Taylor Armstrong, for the new episodes, which feature spotlights on the relationships of both Gina Kirschenheiter and Shannon Beador, and a couple of spats involving Heather Dubrow.
“I’m back, b-tches,” Tamra declares as the trailer begins.
Then, after Emily Simpson is seen shoving cake all over Tamra and Shannon playfully slaps Heather on the cheek, Heather meets with producer Mark Cuban.
“You’re an entrepreneur,” Mark tells her.
“I’m just trying to make sure you’re happy, Mark,” she replies.
As Jennifer enters the scene with her fake boobs and yoga body, as noted by the RHOC cast, she and Gina appear to hit it off.
“You’re so impressive as just a woman and a human,” Jennifer tells Gina.
“You are good at the cheesy stuff,” Gina replies.
But several scenes later, things get tense as Gina seems to tell Jennifer that she “heard that [she] had an affair.”
Jennifer’s marriage to husband William Pedranti, who filed for divorce after 18 years of marriage last March, came to an end prior to the start of filming on RHOC season 17. And in the months since, she has been dating a new man, Ryan Boyajian, who filed alongside her.
“Is he a cheater?” Heather asks Jennifer in regard to Ryan.
“Yes,” she confirms.
Then, when Heather further presses, “Has he been faithful to you,” Jennifer is silent.
“I am over everything,” Gina tells Travis.
“Don’t say you’re over things that you’re not,” he replies.
And shortly thereafter, Heather warns her castmate, “You’re going to drive him away with that.”
“Do you guys want to get married?” Tamra asks.
But Shannon isn’t having it and feels targeted by her co-stars.
“Everyone’s been talking about my relationship. I’m out. Stop with the camera. I’m not a crazy person,” she declares as she makes her way out of a scene.
As the trailer wraps, a number of disputes amongst the RHOC cast are seen, including a moment between Heather and Taylor, who is expected to appear as a “friend” after crossing over from her days on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“For you to sh-t talk my career, f-ck you,” Heather tells Taylor.
“You’re a liar,” Tamra yells at someone else, potentially Shannon, who tells her, “You’re becoming unhinged.”
Heather is also seen feuding with Emily, who tells her, “I thought we were friends,” and Tamra, who she reminds of a “pinky [promise].”
Tamra also goes to war with Jennifer, throwing a napkin in her face as one final surprise is revealed: the return of Vicki.
