At the end of last episode, Lynne and Frank's daughter, Alexis, was handed an eviction notice. Unfortunately the notice wasn't for her.
This episode starts out with underage Alexis admitting she's hung over then throwing the notice on the ground and calling Lynne who's understandably devastated.
So, the notice was clearly intended for Frank and Lynne and now it seems a certain housewife may have to leave Coto!
A seriously bummed Frank confesses the family's dire financial situation as his wife babbles over him in a public park.

F: "There was a deposit that I wasn't able to pay on time." He's speaking of the couple's new condo.
L: "You told me there was no deposit and that's why this place is great."
F: "We've been living beyond our means for awhile and, you know, spending money that we shouldn't be spending."
L: "I can handle the truth."
F: "You don't want to deal with the truth."
Frank suggests they cut back on spending. Lynne's still babbling about her husband trying to hide from her the fact that she's spending them into the poor house. She's embarrassed or something.
L: "I don't even think I can get over this. I'm not going to be able to get over it. I'm just, (pft), I'm over it."
In the end, Lynne stumbles away into the sunset.
Meanwhile, over at Vicki's house, Vick gets some bad news from her daughter, Briana. She recently had a ultrasound on her neck. Apparently her whole neck is covered in nodules. She had a biopsy done and it could be cancer. Vicki is shocked.
"It's scary," Briana says.
Vicki admits to having had had a lot of tumors too and extrapolates that this sort of thing could run in the family. She's smart that Vick.
Briana then tells Vick that her next appointment is on the 13th. Vicki has a work conflict and makes a scrunchy face as if to say, "I don't know if I can make it."
"I might have cancer and all my mom cares about it work," Briana says. Vick makes it to the appointment, scoring her some major mom points.
Back to Frank and Lynne's drama. We learn that Frank's staying in a hotel, a fact that my wise husband points out completely negates his whole trying to save money plan. Oh and Lynne is seriously considering going on a shopping trip to San Francisco with the girls. Great.
In the next scene, Gretchen and Alexis knocking back a couple of margaritas and talking smack about Vicki.
Alexis is still fuming about how Vicki disrespected her at Lynne's housewarming party.
Later, Alexis admits that she and her husband, Jim, have never traveled alone.
"I can do things alone, I just don't like it," Alexis whines.
She then says she's nervous about leaving Jim alone with the kids. "Jim is not a hands on dad..." Don't they have a nanny? The answer to that question is, 'Yes,' by the way.
Finally, Alexis make the tough decision to go to San Fran for the weekend with the girls and without Jim. Jim couldn't be happier.
"As far as I've seen so far from Alexis I would definitely say she's self centered," Vicki says while packing for the San Fran trip. So, she's going to make amends. This is going to be a drama free adventure. I can already tell.
Vicki calls Jim a smelly dork on the plane by the way. It was pretty funny.
The girls secure the penthouse suite at The Vitale hotel in the city and proceed to drink. Was this a freebie for the housewives? It's an amazing suite.
While at dinner Alexis' husband seems to call over and over again. Answering your cell phone at the dinner table is just plain rude. The other women look appalled. These women really just don't like each other.
Jim, meanwhile is shown trying in vain to put together a children's toy and can't so he resolves himself to hitting it with a hammer until it breaks. Mission accomplished.
Back at Fleur de Lys -- the five-star restaurant in which the housewives choose to act like children -- the subject of Briana's health comes up. In an effort to comfort Vicki, the women force feed her an olive which was just plain weird.
Oh and Lynne brings up the eviction. Shock spreads across plastic faces. At least I think it was shock.
Gretch and Vick wisely observe that Lynne really needs to get her head out of her butt and take equal responsibility for her family's finances.
"You have to live within your means," Vicki said.
The women (well, just Alexis and Vicki) then spend the next few minutes gagging at the dinner table over a piece of half chewed meat that Alexis just spit out.
"She is totally classless trash," Vicki says, her face red from almost vomiting on Gretchen. "I don't even know why Alexis is here."
Next, it's Gretch's turn to be awkward when she gets overly emotional at a bar when Briana starts talking about the possibility of having cancer.
The next day while out shopping, Lynne buys a $1,185 leather jacket. SHE JUST GOT AN EVICTION NOTICE!
At lunch, the girls get down to some brunch time drinking. Alexis decides to bring up how offended she was when Vicki and her husband feigned falling asleep at Lynne's housewarming dinner while Alexis told the super entertaining tale of how she and Jim met.
So, next time on the housewives, Alexis and Vick appear to duke it out over bubbling glasses of afternoon Bellinis. I'm siked. Are you?
