Tamra Barney is prepping for her big day with fiance Eddie Judge, and she needs to find the perfect dress to walk down the aisle in. Naturally, she invites all of her closest friends along for the ride — but Gretchen Rossi takes issue with one of Tamra’s guests.
In this sneak peek of Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 12, Gretchen wonders why Tamra invited Alexis Bellino on the dress shopping outing.
“I feel like it’s such a personal thing and it’s like for nine months she’s been talking so much s**t about you, and saying all this stuff and saying she wants to sue you, and you’re a bully and a you’re a mean girl,” Gretchen Rossi says. “But all of a sudden she wants to be involved with like your special day of dress shopping?”
Tamra Barney simply replies, “I’ve made peace with her.”
Speaking to the camera, Gretchen says, “I am gonna call buls**t on you when you keep saying, ‘We’re not friends, we don't talk, we’re not gonna hang out, I don’t want to be around her.’ And all of a sudden you’re inviting her to the dress shopping date? So what is it?”
Tamra tells Gretchen,” Well, it’s not entirely up to me because you are saying that you don’t want her to be there.”
Gretchen explains she’s worried Alexis’s presence will be insincere, and she doesn’t want any part of it.
“So if she’s invited you won’t go?” Tamra asks.
“I think it’s gonna create an issue and I don’t think it’s smart for me to go,” Gretchen responds.
Clearly frustrated with Gretchen, Tamra says to the camera, “This is my day. It’s a special day for me. It’s all about her, all the time.”
Is Gretchen just being selfish, or does she have a point?
