As Tamra Barney so astutely notes in tonight's season premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County: "There's a reason why dogs sniff each other's asses before becoming friends."
But because no one thought to have these women investigate each other's bottoms before agreeing to go on camera together, we're left with the volatile dynamics that have characterized every Real Housewives cast. And we wouldn't have it any other way!
Tamra and Gretchen Rossi, however, are supposedly looking to bury the hatchet, and they put their plan into motion on this episode over mojitos and shrimp cocktails.
Which bears one question: Did Gretchen end up wearing her mojito?
