On this week's Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 premiere, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney's friendship appeared to be in a good place. However, we've recently learned that Vicki is no longer involved with Tamra in their Wines by Wives business. So is there a rift between the two ladies? 

Tamra and Vicki's joint wine venture started out with a bang, but the company had faced some bumps throughout its existence. Last season on RHOC, Tamra felt that Vicki wasn't doing her share to help the company grow.

Now, it appears that Vicki's involvement with the company is behind her. On April 11, she posted a message on Facebook to make it clear that she was dismayed to see that her face still appears on marketing for the wine. 

"Some time ago, Vicki ended her affiliation with [Wines by Wives]  and was surprised her image/presence was still on their site," the statement reads. "Vicki was shocked/dismayed to hear followers were having trouble with their orders. Vicki reached out directly to the owner of WbW and asked for immediate resolution."

Yikes. Not only has Vicki bowed out of the company, but she is also suggesting that some customers didn't get what they paid for. We're now wondering if this situation might have caused trouble for Vicki and Tamra's friendship. Perhaps there's some validity to the old adage about not going into business with friends.

Are you surprised that Vicki is no longer a part of Wines by Wives?
