Agreed - OC is way better than Atlanta. But I may not be impartial
I feel for Gretchen. Don't want to give spoilers, so I won't, but I have to agree that Gretchen shouldn't have gone to Bass Lake. I'm torn on whether I believe she really loves Jeff or not. She acts like it most of the time, but that comment about having sex is her "diet", didn't sit well with me. For some reason, I don't think Jeff is the person she's having sex with.
So, Vicki and Jeana are our only originals left. It makes me actually miss Lauri. Vicki has aged a lot since the beginning of the series. I don't see how she can love her job SOOOOO much. It's selling insurance people!! I like my job a lot, but I don't prefer it over spending time with my husband. Donn is another one that I really feel for. It seems like he's trying to connect with his wife, and she's constantly dismissing him. I'm interested to know what's going on with Jeana's husband, Matt. Last I heard (locally), he got busted for drinking in a bar, while on probation.
Lynne and her daughters bug the crap out of me! For her not stating her age, I'd have to guess it's lat 50s? She looks that way anyway. But, I agree with AQ - it's the sun (or spray tanning) that is not her friend.
Tamra, Tamra, Tamra. I suppose she's my new favorite character to watch. But she's SO superficial, and not representative of Orange County at all. I like how she played both sides of the Jeana/ Vicki argument in last week's episode.
