Remember in Season 7 when Tamra Barney gave her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Gretchen Rossi that cute bracelet with a lock and key and told her they should lock up the past to put it behind them and just be friends? Fast forward to the Season 8 reunion, which Tamra tells TV Guide ruined their friendship.  

When Tamra rekindled her relationship with Vicki Gunvalson this season, the sparks started flying once again between the two former rivals. Tamra accused Gretchen of being a liar several times and even brought up past accusations that Rossi cheated on her ailing fiancé. (So much for keeping the past in the past.)

Tamra tells TV Guide that she and Gretchen were still trying to maintain a friendship… right up until the RHOC reunion taping. Tamra said,  It stirred up a lot.”

Tamra why Gretchen wasn’t in the bridal party for her wedding to Eddie Judge, though Vicki and Heather Dubrow were. “We were in an awkward place in our friendship. She had recently proposed to Slade and got engaged and she didn't invite anyone to that party,” explains Tamra. “I just didn't feel like I wanted someone in my wedding who didn't want to be friends."

Whoa. Apparently the drama was so fierce that it destroyed any hope these two had of being BFFs. We can’t say we’re surprised, having watched the tension between the two bombshells grow thicker in each Season 8 episode.

Also, the RHOC reunion special this year sounds like it’s going to be brutal! We can’t wait to watch every juicy, scandalous moment.

Do you agree with Tamra’s decision to exclude Gretchen from her wedding party? Let us know in the comments!.
