We’re back for a second helping of too much information with the ladies of Orange County. Things start to heat up a bit, and Jim Edmonds deigned to appear on camera beside his wife one last time, though — spoiler he mostly vents about how poorly his prior filmed moments with the missus have gone. The highlights:

There’s a rehashing of all the moments that made you wince, though none are as cringe-worthy as when Andy asks Shannon, “Why did you decide to do a colonic hours before you were to wear white.” Gross, guys.

But wait: It gets worse! Andy asks about Vicki’s ignorance of the definition of circle jerk. Although Briana later informs her mother as to the precise usage of the phrase, Vicki believes it to be “some sexual thing where you jerk something and circle around it.” Tamra asks if the group can do a circle jerk, forcing Andy to set her straight: “No, you don’t have penises.” Then everyone goes “Ohhhh,” as the meaning dawns on them. Vicki ends this horrible discussion with, “I was a circle jerk.”

Heather’s house is still “a lot of work.” Inquiring viewers want to know why Heather claimed it was Terry’s dream home when they were installing dream sinks and closets for her. “Terry likes to build houses, and we build the house. But the ‘we’ is me. So of course I’m going to going to make it fabulous.” While she plays coy on the total budget, Heather does think it’s obscene, but “everything is relative. It was reasonably over budget.” The other women ply on backwards compliments about the forthcoming residence because they’re all a bit jealous. C’est la vie.

Everyone agrees that being married and being on a reality show is real hard, you guys.

Vicki’s ex-husband, Donn, is semi-retired now because of what she’s paid him. “I’m working like a dog, and he’s out golfing. But he doesn’t speak to the press, so he’s a good man to divorce.” Donn, I think Vicki just wrote your eHarmony bio.

Andy would like to buy any of Heather’s unused embryos, of which there are presently two. Get enough cash for a fourth wine cellar, Heather.

The first question thrown at World Series Champion Jim Edmonds is a softball. Who in the Edmonds’ marriage has got the harder life? They both agree it’s Jim, “because baseball is just his job. He goes to work, and he comes home. With the show, it’s his personal life,” Meghan in-articulates.  

Jim Edmonds isn’t sure how he ended up looking like a jerkface repeatedly on national television. “You see yourself and go, ‘Wow. Did I act like that?’” he muses. Yes. Yes, you did. Cue the montage of Jim acting like a jerkface. After, a fan would like to know why Meghan lets Jim Edmonds get away with treating her like a child. “I don’t,” she says. Where’s all that footage?
