Tamra Barney Accuses Gretchen Rossi of Lying to Her
It wasn’t just Vicki Gunvalson and Lauri Peterson who were accusing each other of lying in Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 15. Tamra Barney got in on the action by bringing up Gretchen Rossi’s explanation for nearly missing her wedding dress fitting: Gretchen said she’d been offered a role in Malibu Country, but Heather Dubrow called that into question.
After Vicki blew up at Lauri during dinner at the ski resort, Tamra and Gretchen were left alone at the table. “I don’t even understand how you and Vicki are BFFs again,” said Gretchen. Tamra explained, “I’m trying to move forward.”
The issue, Tamra said, is that Vicki thinks Gretchen lies. That’s when Tamra brought up the dress fitting that Gretchen nearly missed, hinting that the real reason had more to do with Alexis Bellino’s presence at the event.
Gretchen insisted she was trying to protect Tamra’s day, saying she’d have called Alexis out on any phony behavior. “You played me a little bit,” said Tamra, accusing Gretchen of inventing the role on Malibu Country.
“I wouldn’t pull that out of my a**,” insisted Gretchen, adding in her confessional that she was hurt Tamra called her a liar.
In the end, the two ladies hugged it out, but Gretchen thinks there’s something bigger going on. “Everytime Tamra becomes friends with Vicki, she questions me,” she said.
