Gretchen Rossi is now explaining her harsh words toward Vicki Gunvalson during this week's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County.

"I, of course, am going to be protective over Tamra, because we had become so close, and be wary of Vicki playing the 'poor me card' to pull Tamra back in," Gretchen writes in her Bravo blog. "Vicki is very good at playing the victim and making everyone feel bad for her."

"Even Eddie, who was good friends with Vicki, said she is a liar, a manipulator, and can be deceiving in her ways," she continues. "I was relieved to know it was not just me who feels this way about her."

Gretchen claims that Tamra had told her before Heather's clambake that she wouldn't be patching things up with Vicki. 

"Hearing them talk in the wine cellar was actually a surprise to me since Tamra had voiced such a different tune to me for the last nine months about Vicki," Gretchen explains. "However, I was glad to see they could talk and try to work through their issues."

Meanwhile, Gretchen continues to be skeptical of whether Vicki really ended things with Brooks.

"I questioned Vicki not being honest about her relationship with Brooks because, as you will continue to see, her story kept changing all season," she says.

And it appears that Gretchen isn't always thrilled about what Slade says on his radio show, as she says that the snippet of the radio show we saw this week was the "most controversial one."

"He was hired because they loved him at the Improv, so he has to do his comedic bits, but I swear sometimes I might kill him!" Gretchen clarifies. "He and I don't agree on some of his content, as you saw last year with this act at the Improv."

We're guessing Vicki doesn't agree with his content either.
