Tamra Barney: Gretchen Was the Only Housewife to Not Give Wedding Gift (UPDATE)
UPDATE: Did Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney's recent interview Gretchen Rossi get misinterpreted? That seems to be the case, with Tamra tweeting several Twitter reactions to the interview. The first tweet, written on September 4, apparently acknowledges that Gretchen still has not given her a wedding gift:
Let's hope this is a sign that Tamra and Gretchen are on their way to patching things up. Or maybe this can at least be a reminder to Gretchen to take a gander at what might be left on Tamra and Eddie's registry.
Original story:Gretchen Rossi attended Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge's wedding ceremony this summer, but it sounds like she showed up empty-handed.
Gretchen's inclusion in the wedding was a point of contention for the couple at first, as we saw on this week's premiere episode of Tamra's OC Wedding that Eddie was reluctant to invite her. But even though the couple ended up putting Gretchen on the guest list, they weren't thrilled with her wedding decorum.
"Gretchen brought me nothing," Tamra tells OK! "Who doesn’t bring a gift or at least a congratulations card?" And when Tamra is informed by the interviewer that Gretchen technically has a year to buy a gift, Tamra responds, "Well, we’re not speaking now, so I’m not counting on that."
Tamra says she that Bravo didn't force her to invite the Housewives, but she wanted to include everyone to avoid any major conflicts about it. "[All of the OC Housewives] were all very nice to me, and they all brought me lovely gifts and sent me lovely gifts to my house — except for Gretchen," Tamra reveals. "Not even a card."
Tamra adds she was also hurt that, only days after Tamra's wedding, Gretchen tweeted about how great NeNe Leakes's wedding was. "In fact, [she didn't tweet me congrats, but] what she did was she tweeted that NeNe’s wedding was the best wedding she’s ever been to in her life, days after my wedding," she says. "That’s just mean."
"Not only did she do that, but she didn’t RSVP [to my wedding]," Tamra continues. "I had to call her the day before the wedding to see if she was going to make it."
Tamra and Eddie then discussed the fact that Heather Dubrow sang at the wedding, and Eddie squeezed in a jab about Gretchen's singing voice. "That’s what a voice is supposed to sound like," he says about Heather. Ouch!
So maybe Gretchen hasn't given Tamra a gift yet because she still deciding on the perfect item? We'll go ahead and assume that's the reason.
