Tamra BarneyGretchen Rossi - Real Housewives of Orange County 5

Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County brought us the long awaited confrontation between castmates, Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi.

Tamra wanted Gretchen to admit to wrongdoing, and Gretchen wanted an apology from Tamra. In a new interview with RadarOnline, Tamra opens up a new can of worms as she once again bashes Gretchen and her boyfriend, Slade Smiley.

Tamra refers to Slade as a “douche bag”, and referred to Gretchen as “always lying,” especially about the allegations that she was cheating on her dying fiancé Jeff Bietzel. Tamra then upped the ante by telling RadarOnline: “I challenge you, Gretchen Christine Rossi for a lie detector test. If you pass, I will forgive you.”

The subject then turned to new housewife, Alexis Bellino, whom Tamra claims to actually like. “I like Alexis,” Tamra said. “I think so far she’s a really good match with us, she seems to be very sweet.”

Really hope Tamra Sue’s getting paid for these interviews, it just seems rather catty and unnecessary.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY AND LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE OC HOUSEWIVES? ARE SIMON AND JIM CONTROLLING HUSBANDS?

The Real Housewives of Orange County have surprisingly stayed out of the headlines for the past week, but tonight’s episode of the OC Housewives will likely change that as we get to see a confrontation sit-down between arch rivals, Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi.

The above preview shows Tamra and Gretchen doing lunch, as the two attempt to put the past behind them.  Tamra once again brings up Gretchen’s alleged boyfriend, Jay Photoglou.  The Jay drama began when Jay called Tamra during filming last year, and told Tamra that Gretchen was cheating on her then fiance Jeff Beitzel, with him.  When most 40 year old mothers receive random phone calls from random men in the middle of the night, they tend to ignore it, block their numbers, or tell him to never call them anymore, but no, not our Tamra. How could she pass up an opportunity to get some damaging info against Gretchen, who she seemed to be rather jealous of for no reason at all. Tamra of course entertained Jay and even struck up somewhat of a friendship with him.

The drama continued as Jay continued to call and email Tamra.  The led to Tamra accusing Gretchen of two timing Jeff during the Reunion show, as well as some name calling between the two ladies in the media.  Jay in the meantime continued to leak numerous scandalous photos of Gretchen, including the now infamous vibrator photos.

Some of the leaked photos include Gretchen kissing Jay while wearing her engagement ring from Jeff.  Gretchen interestingly has never really explained these photos, and maintains she never cheated on Jeff.

In the mean time, the feud between Tamra and Gretchen has even gotten nastier based on a recent interview they both gave In Touch magazine. You can read that story here.

OC Housewives Gretchen Rossi & Alexis Bellino

The Real Housewives of Orange County stars, Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino visited the LAVO Nightclub at The Palazzo on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

They both brought along their significant others, as Jim Bellino and Slade Smiley were also in attendance. According to Alexis, she hit it off with Gretchen and Tamra Barney during the filming of the 5th season. The only housewife she clashed with was Vicki. Alexis has still yet to comment on the starting details revealed by her ex husband in an interview given to Star magazine a week ago.

In a recent interview, Gretchen also spoke fondly of Alexis. “We’ve become really good friends,” she said. “I like her a lot…She’s cool people.”

Vicki Gunvalson of the Real Housewives of Orange County 5

The Real Housewives of Orange County are using their fifth season to really open up to us about their pasts. First Gretchen Rossi spoke out on her battle with Bulimia, and now Vicki Gunvalson is opening up about her past abusive marriage to her first husband.

Before meeting Donn Gunvalson, her husband for the past 15 years, Vicki says her first marriage was fraught with emotional and verbal abuse, nearly getting physical at one point.

In an interview with Life & Style magazine, Vicki reveals she was just 21 when she married her first husband, Michael J. Wolfsmith. By the time she was 23, she had already given birth to a son, Michael, now 23, and was pregnant with her second child, daughter Briana, now 22. According to Vicki, Michael “was an alcoholic. He abused me verbally. He had many affairs during our marriage.”  She recalls one horrifying incident while she was holding her baby Michael on her lap, “he went to hit me,” Vicki says. While he didn’t end up striking her, she was consumed with fear. “I was 23 years old and pregnant for the second time,” Vicki recalls. “I was really scared.

Vicki divorced him when she was 29. Vicki explains those six years, “were filled with screaming. I had to be his mother. I’d throw cold water on him to wake him up for work. It was a very hard life.” Vicki had a revelation as she approached age 30. “It was a pivotal point in my life,” she explains. “I didn’t want to live my 30s the way I’d lived my 20s. I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t loved.”

Vicki’s ex husband denied the allegations when contacted by Life & Style magazine. “I had bouts with alcohol, but it was not a problem,” he says. He also says he never cheated on Vicki or abused her emotionally or physically.

Gretchen Rossi Orange CountyTamra Barney OC

Just when you thought the feud between the Real Housewives of Orange County housewives, Tamra Barney & Gretchen Rossi, had calmed down, comes news that their feud has once again gotten very nasty and personal. And the man in the middle of their current feud is none other than Gretchen’s current boyfriend, Slade.

According to InTouchWeekly, Tamra believes that Slade Smiley bashed her parenting skills on a recent episode. “I take raising my children very personal. Maybe it’s something he should try doing,” Tamra, 42, tells In Touch. Ouch, Tamra is referring to the news report that Slade owes $80,000 in back child support to his sick son.

Tamra doesn’t stop there, she continues, “I think he is a washed-up 40-year-old who wants to be on TV so bad he’ll do whatever it takes.”

Gretchen, 31, is however quick to come to the defense of her man. “She should focus on her own children, who obviously need the attention,” says Gretchen alluding to the troubled son of Tamra, Ryan Vieth, who has had several run ins with the law. Ryan has received a staggering number of more than 20 traffic violations over the past seven years.

“One of them went to jail recently and has not been successful at much except hitting on drunk girls that Mommy connives to get naked wasted at her home,” says Gretchen.

Yikes, this new feud is rather suprising considering Tamra has been writing in her blogs recently that she and Gretchen are now on good terms. Not certain of what Slade said about Tamra’s parenting skills in any of the recent episodes.

It seems there was a good reason for Gretchen Rossi’s appearance at the American Music Awards on Sunday night. A new report reveals the Real Housewives of Orange County star is getting ready to launch her music career.

“I’m actually getting involved in the music industry,” said Gretchen while walking the AMA red carpet. In fact, Gretchen also brought along music producer Bryan Todd to the awards show.

Todd has produced music for the likes of Jordin Sparks and Ashley Tisdale. “We’re going to work together on some music stuff,” said Todd.

So does this mean stiff competition for fellow tone-deaf singing housewife Kim Zolciak? “Maybe,” she said. “You’ll have to wait and see. There may be some competition for Kim.”

The AMA Awards aired last night and in attendance were Bravo housewives, Kim Zolciak and Gretchen Rossi. In tow was also Slade Smiley, who accompanied his girlfriend on the red carpet.

Not sure what the correlation is between Bravo and the AMAs, but then again these ladies would attend the opening of an envelope. Gretchen and Kim both looked nice, and Kim did a rather nice job in walking that fine line between being sexy without being too revealing.

The latest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County formally introduced us to Alexis Bellino, the newest housewife on the block.

Alexis, 32, is a stay at home mom of three, and is happily married to entrepreneur Jim Bellino. This episode of the OC Housewives was a perfect example of why doing a reality show is a not so great idea for a marriage. The little things about your spouse that you found oh so adorable quite frankly might translate into creepy and controlling in front of millions of viewers. All of a sudden, your “perfect” marriage doesn’t appear so perfect anymore.

I was loving the dynamic between Alexis and Jim, 47, at the beginning of the episode, especially when they mentioned putting God first in their marriage, then came some awkward moments which included Jim telling his wife to quiet down during their lunch ( she was barely loud by the way), and Jim not allowing her to try on lingerie at the store (even though her bathing suit from the previous day was very revealing). Seems like it gets even better judging from next week’s previews. We get to see Jim not allow Alexis to go on a trip without him. Sighs, all soo romantic.

Tonight’s episode also brought way TMI (Too Much Information) concerning Gretchen and Slade‘s relationship. I could have really done without the excessive details of their sex life. A refreshing moment however was Slade admitting he was poor/broke. It was nice to see some honesty regarding his financial situation. Gretchen continues her attempt to prove to us that she didn’t get a ton of money from her late fiance, Jeff Beitzel, though a TMZ report reveals she received $2.5 million.

Tamra continues to prove to us she has some major jealousy and self esteem issues. Vicki was Vicki as always, and we got to see a somewhat emotional goodbye from Jeana. It was nice seeing her with all of her kids. Can’t say I really blame her for wanting out of this OC madness.
