"I had no idea that Gretchen [Rossi] would bring up what she brought," she adds. "You have to remember that when you’re doing a reality show, my conversation with Gretchen was about a two-hour conversation that ended up getting ten minutes of the conversation that ended up on air. Of course they’re going to use the most dramatic parts."
Lauri says that she and Gretchen discussed all of the ladies during their conversation, but the only stuff that made it on-air was about Vicki.
"I do feel like there was some hypocrisy, and I wanted to let Gretchen know that Vicki was the last person who should make an issue of infidelity," Lauri says. "Vicki has come out and admitted to cheating on Donn, so that whole personal vendetta — there is no vendetta." Did you really think Lauri would give an interview without using her favorite buzz word, "hypocrisy"? We think not.
And Lauri also goes into how she felt seven years ago when Vicki didn't tell her about an email she got from George's former mother-in-law.
"A true friend would not have given this woman her email address to then accept an email which was twelve pages long of slanderous material — just all untrue, fabricated lies," Lauri says. "To take that email and send it to everybody but me? That defined our relationship at that moment. We were not friends, and I realized that."
Will they ever be friends again? You never know, but we won't hold our breath.
