Real Housewives’ Tamra Barney Doesn’t Think Her Friendship With Vicki Gunvalson Is Salvageable
It’s business as usual when The Real Housewives of Orange County bicker back and forth ad nauseam; their spats are part of the fun of watching the show! But the fight currently going down between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney is happening off camera, and there’s nothing fun about it.
In her recent Bravo blog, Vicki wrote that she’s tired of hearing negative comments about her boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, and that she has Tamra to thank for a lot of it.
“I wonder … how she would feel if she had to listen to negative comments about Eddie as I have about Brooks … Tamra started most of the negative comments, which was uncalled for and downright mean. I will always have a very hard time forgiving or for that matter understand why she started all this back-stabbing,” she wrote.
Now Tamra’s firing back. Speaking to, Tamra said that these stories about Brooks Ayers’s past, including accusations that he has been delinquent on child support, “were out there before I [Tamra] knew who he was.”
She continued, “Vicki had no problem going after Slade [Smiley] and Jim [Bellino] in the past. Why is Brooks off limits? … Brooks is responsible for the negative stories in the press. Not me, Gretchen [Rossi], Briana, or Bravo.”
Tamra’s so offended by the blog that she’s even suggestedTwitter that she and Vicki might never mend their friendship. When a follower asked if their relationship could be repaired, she wrote, “not in my eyes.”
Oh, no! This is quite a disaster, even by the OC Housewives standards!
