Watching Tamra Barney balance her friendships with Vicki Gunvalson and Gretchen Rossi on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 often has us biting our nails with anxiety. Eventually, something was going to give.

Emotions came to head in Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 11 when the girls headed to Puerto Vallarta for Tamra’s bachelorette party. During the second day of the trip, Vicki and Gretchen finally laid their issues bare to deal with. Although they didn’t come to any kind of truce, the argument made Tamra think about why she’s been able to open up to Gretchen but not Vicki.

Gretchen is that kind of friend that wants to know everything about your life and I am not used to someone like that,” Tamra Barney wrote in her Bravo blog. “She has a real sweetness about her that makes you want to open up. As much as I care about Gretchen, she is the type of person that scares me not because she is a bad person but its hard for me open up to people.”

As for her relationship with Vicki, Tamra said, “Vicki and I have gone through a lot of the same adult struggles in life and although we talk about them at the time, we really don't know each other deep inside. I think that is why we are so drawn to each other? We live for the moment and forget about the past.”

Do you think Tamra can be close with both women, or will she ultimately have to choose?
