Tamra Barney Hits Back at Gretchen Rossi’s “Dramatic” Statement
A case of hurt feelings seems to have spiraled into a full-on feud between two Real Housewives of Orange County stars. Last week, Gretchen Rossi hit back at “hurtful” comments castmate Tamra Barney made about her business, character, and even her singing skills! Gretchen was surprised that Tamra questioned their growing friendship, but she’s hasn’t given up just yet. “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.”
Tamra told All Things Real Housewives she isn’t too pleased with Gretchen’s willingness to discuss their issues to the press instead of contacting Tamra directly.
“I thought the way Gretchen handled the situation was wrong,” said Tamra. “She ran to the press with an overly dramatic statement, she should of talked to me first. I never meant to hurt her feelings.”
Of the comments Gretchen is upset about, Tamra makes no apologies for her blunt personality.
“I didn’t really question our friendship so much,” she said. “I never made fun of her business, that was something she made up. But I did comment on her singing when asked. You know I am not one to sugar coat my answers. Other than Kandi Burruss, who is a professional singer, I don't’ think any of the housewives-turned-singers can sing that well.”
While we can’t say we disagree, we can totally see how Tamra’s honesty rubbed Gretchen the wrong way.
