Gretchen Rossi Upset Over Tamra Barney’s Hurtful Comments
Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney have had a bit of a rollercoaster relationship, but Gretchen thought the two were in a good place. Or she did, until Tamra slammed her in an interview with All About The Real Housewives, and lied about it! After saying that all Housewives singers, “suck,” Tamra was asked about Gretchen in particular. “Have you heard her sing? Are you going to argue with me? No Housewives should sing!” she responded. Ouch! In her own All About The Real Housewives interview Gretchen responded to the dig, and to some of the unflattering comments Tamra also made about their relationship.
“I was surprised to hear she questioned the friendship she has with me,” Gretchen said, though as she tells it, Tamra has a history of two-faced behavior. Apparently, Tamra is in the habit of saying one thing for the RHoOC cameras and texting Gretchen another, and Gretchen called her hurtful interview a “perfect example” of this behavior.
“I asked her about it she texted me it was all BS and you guys completed manipulated the story,” Gretchen said. But, unfortunately for Tamra, AATRH keeps audio recordings of all interviews, and assured Gretchen they had her comments on tape.
When she heard that detail, Gretchen was still surprisingly forgiving.“Sometimes it’s hard to know what the truth is,” she said. “However as a friend I want to give her the benefit, so I have to believe her.”
That is a very kind move on Gretchen’s part, especially since she feels she has been nothing but a good friend to Tamra, and shown her nothing but support in all her personal and professional endeavors.
But if Tamra really did make those comments about her, Gretchen admits that she would be very upset. “It is beyond hurtful that she would tear down my business, my character again (because we had a disagreement) and now my singing,” she said.
Do you believe that Tamra’s words were twisted out of context? Should Gretchen forgive her? Will these two be stuck as frenemies forever? Let us know!
