My my my…..what a difference a year makes!
Last season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, if you saw a scene with Tamra Barney, it’s likely Gretchen Rossi was in it or nearby. Gretchen hung onto Tamra like a newborn breastfeeding. If you recall Gretchen dropped Alexis like a hot potato to be Tamra’s best friend. Gretchen stood by and egged Tamra on as she verbally assaulted Alexis at every opportunity. Now the tables have turned, Gretchen is on the outs and in direct crosshairs of Tamra’s shotgun.
I know what you’re thinking and no, these women are not in High School.
Last season when Gretchen was on the show, she received an invite to Tamra’s wedding despite strong objections from Tamra’s fiance, Eddie. Gretchen and her fiance, Slade Smiley attended the lavish ceremony but neglected to bring a gift.
Now that Gretchen has been fired and no longer friends with Tamra, what’s the likelihood of Mr. & Mrs. Judge getting an invite? Tamra certainty isn’t holding her breath, “No, I don’t think that’s going to happen,” Tamra tells Wetpaint, before going on to explain that the last time Tamra even saw Gretchen was at the taping of the RHOC reunion show. “Honestly, I believe that some people probably shouldn’t be friends, and we’re two people that shouldn’t,” she says bluntly of her longtime frenemy. And of course Tamra wouldn’t be Tamra if she didn’t get in one insult “If I do attend, I’ll make sure I bring a gift!”
