Tamra Barney Reveals What Ended Her Friendship With Gretchen Rossi


In a new interview with TV Guide, Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is revealing that she and Gretchen Rossi were friends up until they filmed the season 8 reunion! “We were friends until we shot the reunion show,” she says. “It stirred up a lot. They talked about the past and Andy [Cohen] went deep, so it brought back a bunch of nonsense that didn’t need to be brought up.”

Tamra recently married Eddie Judge, and many fans were surprised that Gretchen was not part of the party or in any photos with the bride. “She was not in the wedding,” Tamra admits. “We were in an awkward place in our friendship. She had recently proposed to Slade and got engaged and she didn’t invite anyone to that party. All of us at the time didn’t know where we stood with her and she put it out there that she wasn’t friends with any of us and I just didn’t feel like I wanted someone in my wedding who didn’t want to be friends.”

But Tamra and Vicki’s friendship is still going strong! “Vicki and I are good; we’ll always be good,” she said. “We have our ups and downs and the previous problem was when [Gunvalson’s boyfriend] Brooks came into our life. I just wanted what was best for her, and she didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t mean any harm to her.”

Tamra also teases that her wedding spin-off, Tamra’s O.C. Wedding will be drama filled! “We have a coed bachelor/bachelorette party and let’s just say there’s drama,” she said, before Eddie added, “What should’ve stayed in Vegas is not going to stay in Vegas.” Tamra adds, “No guy wants camera looking in on their bachelor party at a strip club.”
