Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County seems to have set off some fireworks both on and off the show, as cast-member Vicki Gunvalson had some harsh words after seeing the things that were said about here after she abruptly left Lynne’s dinner party.
Vicki, who seems to have developed a close friendship with fellow cast-mate Tamra Barney both on and off the show seemed very hurt and shocked by some of Tamra’s comments in last night’s episode.
Calling Tamra’s comments both rude and disgusting, Vicki had the following to say in her latest Bravo blog –
“When Donn and I were invited to Lynn’s housewarming party, I thought it would be a nice casual Sunday night dinner party and was looking forward to it. I never intended for anything to go down the way it did. I wasn’t nervous about seeing Simon; I was actually hoping we would give each other a hug and put any harsh feelings away, but obviously that didn’t happen. Simon somehow wants to blame “someone” for his marriage problems and the only one he felt he could point his finger at was me. I know Tamra was torn between Simon and myself and that I’m sure was a difficult spot to be in. HOWEVER, once I saw the footage on what went down after Donn and I left was disgusting. I guess it teaches you even as an adult, to be careful when you walk out of a room what people are going to say about you. Never in a million years would I have guessed Tamra to be so rude and disrespectful to me and our friendship. When she says she has my back, I’d hate to see her when she doesn’t have it. Guess her idea and my idea of being friends are “two different ideas” … as Donn would say!
When Tamra tells the group at the table that “I’m lacking something and [I’m] a very jealous person” made me very sad. I think everyone can agree that we ALL are lacking something and no one is perfect so I don’t know what she is referring to. The fact that she said I am a very jealous person is farthest from the truth. I am grateful for my family, for my life, and for my career, and am not jealous of anyone or anything! I wouldn’t want to be in any of those people’s lives and am completely happy with mine. She claims she is my friend? I would NEVER speak about her the way that she did about me. It was really sad to hear that come from her mouth when all I have ever done is support her and be a good friend to her.”
Simon Barney, who has spent the last couple of weeks saying some negative things about his soon to be ex-wife Tamra, has now decided to quit blogging all together, citing negative comments as being one of the main reasons.
His final blog is below –
“This week’s blog will be completely different than my past ones. I wanted to start by thanking everyone for their support and making me feel welcome as a first-time blogger. Unfortunately after much thought, I feel it is time to bring it to a close. I always told myself as soon as it turns negative, I would stop. I would have to say my blog and the comments have both shifted a little on the negative side. So, now is the time for me to focus on my kids and the next chapter of my life, whatever it might be. I also wanted to thank Bravotv.com for graciously allowing me the ability to give my spin on the show events. A final note: please don’t judge only on what you see, or think you see. Realize that we are on a reality show designed to entertain. Be nice to the rest of the cast members; they know not what you see….
So with that, I will bid you a final farewell.”
For some strange reason, something tells me passive aggressive Simon will be back to blogging in no time.
