Tamra Barney On Vicki Gunvalson, “It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better” In Season 8 Of RHOC!


We’ve seen Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson go through many ups and downs on The Real Housewives of Orange County, and Tamra is revealing to Bravo the two are currently in a much better place than what viewers are seeing air on TV right now. “Where we’re at in the show, it gets worse before it gets better,” Tamra explained, explaining there are several months of time between what people see on the show and what the relationships are right now. “It’s a struggle with Vick.”

Tamra explains that watching RHOC air can open up old wounds between she and her cast mates. “I’m dealing with what’s airing and where we’re at, and now she’s mad and then I’m like, ‘You can’t be mad, this was filmed seven months ago. You’ve been doing this for eight years, you know that.’ She’ll be like, ‘Ok you’re right.’”

“I texted her the other day and said, ‘Be nice to me,’ and she said, ‘Ok, will you be nice to me? Ok we’re friends.’” Tamra added, “We get over stuff quite easily.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
