After a season of building tension on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson and Lydia McLaughlin let Gretchen Rossi‘s fiance/serial name-caller Slade Smiley have it on Monday’s season finale, and we’ve got all the details for you right here on RadarOnline.com.
As we previously reported, Slade, a radio personality, has been essentially the show’s resident bad guy this season, famously mocking “The O.G. from the O.C.” by likening her to Miss Piggy, as well as a stream of wisecracks about Lydia’s lithe build.
The setting Monday was Vicki’s Winter Wonderland party, and Gretchen and Slade got off on the wrong foot by showing up late, with the latter making things worse by sarcastically telling Lydia that she looked like she was dressed for Dancing with the Stars. (She called him a “Douche-lord” in an off-camera interview.)
Later on in the night, Lydia confronted Slade about his stream of insults, telling him, “Dirty is dirty is dirty — you’re dirty.”
This fired Vicki fired up, and she unleashed a (well-deserved) tongue-lashing on Slade.
Vicki called Slade “a piece of s***” and brought up the fact that “three years ago he wasn’t paying child support.”
“You’ve been making fun of me, and my looks … I’m proud of who I am, I’m not Miss Piggy or Miss Tupperware. When you make fun of a woman’s looks, it’s disrespectful,” Vicki yelled at Slade. “Be careful of your tongue, when you’re talking about someone’s looks!”
(In her off-camera interview, Gretchen said she was tired of Vicki’s blowups, implying Vicki was promiscuous during her former marriage, and saying, “Im sick of your s***!”)
The cast then rallied around the emotional Vicki, who admitted her edginess was because of her jagged relationship with on-again, off-again beau Brooks Ayers.
