Tamra Barney on Gretchen Rossi Cheating Claims: “I Know What I Saw”

Whew! We’re still reeling from the dramatic Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 Reunion, and we’ve only seen part one! The sparks started to fly almost immediately between former BFFs Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi.

In her Bravo blog following the episode, Tamra says, “It is NOT my idea of fun to go back and relive all the things that made us upset in the past season, but thats the nature of the show.” The blonde firecracker also said that deciding to move on from the past with Gretchen and restart their friendship didn’t mean she agreed that Rossi was innocent of cheating on her fiance.

“When I sat down with Gretchen two years ago I wanted to move on and thought I was being the bigger person by saying ‘SORRY and let's move on.’ By saying I was sorry I was NOT saying ‘I was lying about what I saw.’ I knew what I saw and she knew it.”

OUCH. We guess that’s what those pictures we weren’t allowed to see on the special were about, right?

Tamra added that “Gretchen continues to talk about the past to everyone. It would be in her best interest to just stop talking about it and everyone else would too. The fact that she sat down with Lauri and brought it up again was stupid of her. She opened the door for everyone to revisit the story, including Alexis who had kept the secret for years.”

The newly-married star also said that Lauri’s accusations about Vicki were ridiculous, and that Gretchen needs to stay out of it. “[Lauri] had no proof, she said it herself. For Gretchen to spread the rumor like wildfire was wrong. For her to say Vicki banged 12 guys without ANY proof was ignorant. Vicki is not the one with compromising pictures with another man while wearing her engagement/wedding ring. ”

Proof or no proof, we do find it interesting that Gretchen predicted Tamra would turn on her as soon as she rekindled her relationship with Vicki. It seems like those three just cannot keep the peace.

We can’t wait to see what happens on part two of the Season 8 reunion this Monday!

Do you think Tamra’s right about Gretchen’s lies? Or do you believe Gretchen has been treated unfairly by the “mean girls?” Let us know in the comments!
