Gretchen Rossi on Vicki Gunvalson: “What Planet Does This Woman Live on?
We’ve come to terms with the fact Gretchen Rossi and Vicki Gunvalson will never be BFFs. But we worried things would get out of hand in Mexico during Tamra Barney’s bachelorette party after Lauri Peterson disclosed some damning information about Vicki’s love life. We waited with bated breath for Gretchen to confront Vicki during the last couple episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County, but Gretchen says she wanted to be the bigger person by keeping things to herself.
“I tried to rise above it and not say anything to Vicki — even though she was giving me opportunity after opportunity in Mexico just by the things she was saying and doing,” Gretchen wrote in her Bravo blog.
Gretchen again brought up the “H” word much maligned by Vicki.
“Here’s the bottom line: I would not have had issues with Vicki’s behavior that weekend if she hadn't been such a hypocrite for all these years while, accusing me of crazy things while she was the one doing them,” wrote Gretchen Rossi.
Hypocrisy aside, Gretchen was also upset over Vicki’s “beyond obvious” attempts to sabotage Tamra and Gretchen’s friendship.
“She was so full of joy that I was left behind that night that she even said ‘my plan worked,’ which Tamra confirmed the next day,” Gretchen explained. “Vicki's true intentions have become very clear. “
Gretchen also pointed out how both Lydia McLaughlin and Heather Dubrow agreed Vicki Gunvalson is competitive with Gretchen over Tamra’s friendship. But most baffling to her was the comment Vicki made about being a mentor figure to Gretchen.
“She's done nothing but shown hatred towards me from day one, she's accused me and others of the improprieties she herself is doing, she has talked down and attempted to belittle me, she always claims nothing I do is legitimate, she says my companies are never going to make it, and she's always trying to convince others I'm a bad person (especially Tamra),” Gretchen wrote. "Yet somehow, despite all that, I'm supposed to respect her and look up to her as a mentor? What planet does this woman live on?”
Do you agree Vicki is a hypocrite, or is Gretchen overly sensitive?
