At this point the war between Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley versus Tamra Barney is nothing short of World War III. Not only have the Real Housewives of Orange County ladies been bringing up recently-fired Gretchen’s name many times so far this season, but Gretchen has been running her mouth about Tamra’s legal issues. After Tamra called Gretchen “narcissistic” the other day, it looks like Slade is running to his bride-to-be’s defense!

“I suggest before you go out and offer any idiotic advice about getting someone’s life in order you should take a close look in the mirror, ’cause it seems like you’re the one who seems to need to get their life in order and you can’t deny the evidence is out there,” Slade said on his 365 radio show earlier this month, courtesy of AllAboutTHR. “And if she can just shut her big fat mouth she wouldn’t be in trouble!”

Yikes, Slade isn’t holding anything back, and he went on to slam her personality, parenting, and charitable contributions. We admit that it’s great to see him (once again) rush to his lady’s defense, but we’re definitely on Tamra’s side in this situation. Sure, she should not be throwing so much shade at Gretchen and she should stay mum on her legal drama, but this feud goes way back.

Gretchen and Slade have been pissed that Tamra is using their name on the TV show, so we guess the playing field is even since he’s returning the favor by mentioning Tamra’s name on his radio show. Tit for tat, right? It’s pretty obvious that these two parties will never be besties again (were they ever?), but we hope they can reach a peaceful agreement sooner rather than later.

Whose side are you on: Tamra or Slade? Hit the comments and let us know!
