Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney was full of surprises as a guest on Watch What Happens Live! last night!

First, a viewer who phoned in asked the newly-engaged blondie who she had more fun with: longtime pal Vicki Gunvalson or newer BFF (and former frenemy) Gretchen Rossi. Much to everyone’s shock — including Bravo host Andy Cohen — Tamra chose Gretchen!

”I think Vicki and I have drifted a little bit this season,” said the 43-year-old. “I think Gretchen and I have so much fun together.” Their little sex store excursion did seem like a pretty good time!

But it gets crazier: Another viewer called in to ask Tamra about her awkward friendship with Gretchen’s boyfriend, Slade Smiley, and although Tamra and Slade have famously feuded for seasons, the always outspoken H-wife only had good things to say about him. Wait, what?

“I’ve really grown to like Slade,” said Tamra. “... Basically hell has freezed over.”

Tamra went on to say she appreciates Slade’s help with Gretchen’s career, explaining that he often acts like a manager for the petite singer/businesswoman and puts his own ambitions on the backburner. “Without him, I don’t think there would be a her,” Tamra admitted.

We didn’t think it could happen, but Tamra, you have rendered us speechless. Bet co-star and Slade hater Vicki Gunvalson will have plenty to say in our place, though!
