After a painfully dull episode, The Real Housewives of Orange County returns with more drama involving facelifts and confining relationships. "Friends, Facelifts and Florida," the fifth episode of the fifth season, finds Vicki Gunvalson trying to repair her marriage to Donn by planning a big surprise to celebrate their upcoming 15th wedding anniversary.
Meanwhile, it's plastic surgery day for the Curtins when Lynne undergoes a face-lift, while her oldest daughter Raquel has a bump removed from her nose. In the world of The Real Housewives, going under the knife is pretty common so this doesn't really come as a surprise. What's disturbing though is how Alexis Bellino is raising her twin, 20-month old girls. In attempt to teach them the importance of keeping up their good looks, she decides they are old enough to have their first manicure and pedicure at a nail salon.
Tamra Barney, on the other hand, is ready to jump back into the real estate game, showing her first house in several years. And when Vicki travels to Florida for an insurance convention and invites all the Housewives to join her for a ladies-only getaway, Gretchen begins to wonder about everyone's confining relationships since Alexis can't go unless Jim accompanies her.
