Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney have made up since The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 wrapped filming, but Vicki still thinks there’s some work to do — mostly on Tamra’s end.

 

In her Bravo blog, Vicki admits having dinner with Tamra was a great step toward fixing their friendship, but it resolved little of their conflict.

 

“I really missed Tamra and just wanted to figure out a way to see if we could be cordial and then see what would happen from there,” Vicki wrote. “Tamra didn't seem like she wanted to take responsibility for anything she had done to make our friendship go ‘sour.’ So, instead of attempting to convince her otherwise, I felt it was best to move on. We both were responsible for it, not just one of us.”

 

Despite the tenuous state of their friendship, Vicki Gunvalson appreciated Tamra’s efforts to visit Briana and baby Troy bearing gifts.

 

But one thing Vicki is very tired of is defending her relationship with Brooks Ayers to seemingly everyone around her.

 

“I really have tried to minimize the opinions of what people think of my personal dating life, not only with the ladies, but also my daughter,” wrote Vicki. “I am at the point in my life that I have decided I need to do what's right for me and no one else. I'll either suffer the consequences or reap the rewards and make everyone eat... you know what!”

She added, “Bottom line is if you really care about me — let me be.”

 

We don’t think Vicki will be hearing the last of people’s criticisms about Brooks. But then again, we’re sure she won’t have any problem telling them where they can shove those opinions!
