Heather Dubrow had high hopes for the Ireland trip on the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Now, Dubrow had good reasons for wanting to visit Ireland and thought the trip would be a healing experience for everyone. In true RHONY fashion, however, the ladies couldn’t stop their squabbles from ruining the getaway.
Why did Dubrow’s plans spiral out of hand in Ireland?
Reality Tea is reporting that Dubrow immediately loved the idea of going to Ireland with her co-stars, who are normally fairly civil during their trips abroad.
“When Meghan brought up Ireland I was immediately intrigued. This group usually has a lot of fun when we travel together and now that everyone seems to be moving on – it might be just what we need!” Dubrow shared.
In the last episode of RHOC, the ladies actually avoided any major fights at Dubrow’s book party.
The party was a promising start to the Ireland getaway and Dubrow had a very special reason for returning to the country.
“My late beloved grandmother (the same one who died from colon cancer that we discussed earlier in the season) had been there years ago and brought me home a sprig of ‘heather’…a flower that grows wild there,” she explained. “I still have it dried in an envelope with my name on the envelope in her handwriting.”
Sadly, Heather Dubrow couldn’t have been more wrong about how the trip would go.
As Inquisitr has previously reported, Judge had the worst reaction in the preview, when Dodd brought up her custody problems with her daughter.
Judge was forced to let her daughter, Sidney, live with her dad a few years back after the teenager refused to live under her roof.
The reality star has struggled to establish a relationship with Sidney ever since her departure and it understandably remains a sore subject.
Apparently, Gunvalson brought up Judge’s daughter during the Ireland trip, and things didn’t end well from there.
The clip features Judge screaming at Gunvalson and making threats, which fans immediately criticized.
“Vicki I’m on your side. Tamra really looks out on control screaming in your face,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
“Oh just wait you might change your mind,” Judge cautioned the fan.
“It was pretty loud. That was my good bye FU to VG,” Judge later clarified.
Judge and Gunvalson used to be close friends but had a falling out after Brooks Ayers cancer scandal last season.
Judge never truly forgave Gunvalson for her part in the matter, and it now sounds like her actions in Ireland put the final nail in the coffin.
Speaking of Gunvalson, Us Weekly reports that the reality star threatened to expose a dark secret about Shannon Beador’s past in the latest episode.
It isn’t known what kind of dirt Gunvalson has on Beador, though it sounds like it has something to do with her marriage and family.
In response to Gunvalson’s threats, Judge lashed out against her former friend on her official Bravo blog.
“Bottom line, Vicki is a bully. To say that she has a secret about Shannon that would hurt her family is just absolutely disgusting. Her family has gone through enough hurt. Leave them alone, Vicki,” Judge wrote.
She also threatened to expose whatever secret Gunvalson has before she has the chance to do it herself.
Gunvalson hasn’t spoiled the secret just yet, though it sounds like fans can expect it to come to light eventually.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County air Monday nights on Bravo.
