Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney were on a solid path to repairing their friendship by the end of Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 3. But Vicki almost to ruined the delicate balance with a dubious party invitation.
While on the phone with Tamra, Vicki tells her she’s thinking of inviting Alexis Bellino to Tamra’s gym opening. For those who’ve blocked part of Season 7 from their memory, the two ladies exchanged some pretty harsh words. Tamra accused Alexis of being superficial and bestowed upon her the infamous nickname “Jesus Jugs,” while Alexis in turn threatened a lawsuit against Tamra.
The feud doesn’t exactly make for light party banter, but Vicki believes that if she and Tamra can make amends, then Alexis and Tamra should be able to forgive each other as well.
While she’s not crazy about the idea, Tamra acquiesces to Vicki’s idea to invite Alexis.
“You know when you want really badly to say no to something but you say yes instead?” Tamra says to the camera in her confessional. “This was one of those times.”
Vicki seems to have the best of intentions with inviting Alexis, but we can’t help but wonder if a private setting would be more fitting for hashing things out with Tamra.
