Ahead of the finale on Wednesday, and after Gina Kirschenheiter, 39, described it as “explosive” and Emily Simpson, 47, said it was “intense,” the sneak peek features the cast in full-blown screaming matches with one another.
“I’m so manipulative,” Heather Dubrow, 54, sarcastically says at the start of the clip, only to be mocked by Emily, who cries, “Poor Heather, poor Heather, poor Heather!”
As Heather and Emily go at it, Gina calls out Shannon Beador, 59, and her comment about CPS taking her children after her DUI (a charge Shannon has since sustained herself), demanding her castmate keep her family out of her mouth.
“Never talk about my children again. My children!” she yells.
“Keep screaming, Gina,” Shannon replies.
“Is it goodbye to Orange County?” he asks.
And Gina is admittedly unsure, telling him, “I don’t even know if I can continue to do this.”
The RHOC reunion would, of course, not be complete with a rehashing of the drama surrounding Ryan Boyajian and his infamous “d*ck pics,” and Tamra Judge, 56, doesn’t hesitate to go head-to-head with her former friend, Jennifer Pedranti, 46.
“I didn’t send f*cking d*ck pics! Stop protecting this piece of sh*t!” she yells at the season 17 newbie.
“F*ck off you cheater,” Tamra tells Jennifer amid their argument.
“You’re a f*cking cheater too,” she yells at her castmate, seemingly giving a nod to the start of her relationship with Eddie Judge, 50, which reportedly began prior to the finalization of her divorce from ex-husband Simon Barney.
Also in the reunion preview, Andy informs the ladies that they could soon be joined by Ryan, who will surely have a lot to say to Tamra in regard to her allegations against him, which have included a suggestion that he cheated on Jennifer.
“We invited Ryan,” he warns.
