The drama picks up where it left off in the first episode of the sixth season of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County. With Simon in her rear view mirror, Tamra moves forward with her divorce and dishes to the other girls about her new, younger, sexy boyfriend. Continuing to build financial independence through her make-up line, Gretchen is now expanding the business with a handbag collection and begins taking TV hosting classes. It's a new year, but Vicki and Donn Gunvalson are still bickering and arguing about everything, including where the rug should go. Times have changed for Alexis as she is now forced to watch her children most days and not always with good results. In an effort to start fresh and be more social, Tamra decides to throw a shopping party and invite all the ladies, even Gretchen. But things take a turn for the worse when Gretchen has a few too many drinks and starts acting out of line.
