It looks like the truce is officially over between Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson — at least for now.
In a sneak peek of Season 8, Episode 7, the Housewives head to Malibu to sample some wines as part of a branding mission for Tamra and Vicki’s co-owned business, Wine by Wives. While Tamra is drinking up, Vicki is distracted by shopping — and Tamra is predictably ticked off.
But Vicki plays it cool, saying, “Just because Tamra’s drinking more wine than me doesn’t make her a better business partner. It just makes her more drunk.”
Touché! Vicki tells Tamra that she has to get back to LA for a dinner date, and the claws finally come out.
“I don’t want to be in business with somebody who clearly doesn’t want to be there,” Tamra Barney tells the camera.
Lydia McLaughlin tries to mediate the situation, suggesting the two have a business meeting. But Vicki Gunvalson says her plans were made months ago and she needs to leave. When Lydia asks if Tamra is Ok with this, she responds, “No, I’m not Ok with that. We paid a lot of money to do this and i thought we should make the best out of it.”
Vicki tells her she doesn’t want to fight, and Tamra asks why Vicki isn’t engaged in their business anymore. Tamra really hits a sore spot when she insinuates Vicki would take things more seriously if they were doing something for Vicki’s vodka line.
The two continue to argue about who’s working harder to support the business. When Vicki starts to walk away, Tamra yells at her, “You’re such a bitch!”
Will Vicki keep on walking, or will she confront her former BFF?
