On a recent episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge revealed a painful secret. While going through her divorce to high school sweetheart Darren Vieth, she tried to overdose on pills and Nyquil. Tamra's admission served to explain why she's so closed off and good at deflecting with her over-the-top antics. After the episode aired, her ex (father of her oldest son Ryan) is coming forward with accusations of cheating and theatrics. It looks like someone is ready to cash in their fifteen minutes! To be honest, I'm actually surprised we haven't heard from this dude sooner.
Of course, Tamra isn't one to sit by silently when someone is spreading rumors about her, so she's fighting back the way all good Bravo housewives do. That's right! She's calling him out on Twitter. I have a feeling that Darren is going to be no match for Tamra!
In an interview with Radar Online, Tamra's (first) ex-husband is speaking out over Tamra's accusations that he is partly to blame for what drove her to her first suicide attempt. Just like Tamra, Darren has a sharp tongue and doesn't hold back, so I can see where the pair possibly butted heads during their young union. He tells the site, “Tamra is a liar, a cheater and a bad mother to our son, Ryan, and she seemed to enjoy constant drama in her life because it lead to attention,” adding, “Tamra usually never tells the entire story, and this time is no different.” Wait, what? Tamra enjoys drama?
Gretchen Rossi, come on down! You are the next victim contestant on "this is your fashion flashback".
The Real Housewives of Orange County star freely admits to her love of costumes and our dear Gretchen never shies away from taking a fashion risk, that's for sure. We've gathered up a few highlights from Gretchen's past, starting back in her first season of RHOC.
Take a look at our gallery below and tell us which outfits (if any) you love and share the one that makes you laugh your ass off.
So, Tamra Barney, who has been peddling the redemption storyline this season, was trying to convince us that she and Gretchen had really moved past seasons worth of hatred. But alas when the two got started with wedding wars, all hell broke loose!
The story goes that Gretchen and Slave Smiley were supposed to get engaged last season on TV and get a wedding spinoff/storyline. But Slave screwed up with all his child support woes and bad behavior that made fans detest him so Bravo conspired behind their backs and pawned the engagement storyline off on Tamra.
A few weeks agoBrooks Ayers tried to seek some attention and con Vicki Gunvalson back into loving him by spilling deets of their break-up on twitter. Vicki never actually confirmed or denied the relationship ending… until now!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star admits that her "love tank is empty" once again! “I‘m single now," Vickireveals to RadarOnline. "We have decided to remain friends but we have decided to move on and date other people.”
Perhaps Vicki's decision to end things with Brooks came after her business partner planned to sue her over one of Brooks' grifting schemes! “We came to the realization that it was harder to stay together than it was to be apart,” VIcki says of their relationship ending.
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County the battle in the blizzard continued. Vicki Gunvalson tried her darndest to ice out Lauri Peterson after she accused her of threesomes and cheating, but Lauri refused to be silenced. Until Vicki said she'd be her friend again; then Lauri perked up like someone handed her a latte and an AmEx.
Could it be that she thinks Vicki accepting her is her gateway drug back onto RHOC? Let's hope not unless she gets that wonky lip fixed. One would think Lauri froze her face to a -28 degree ice wall instead of Tamra Barney!
Things begin with Tamra, Vicki, and their eye makeup meeting for a pre-dinner pow-wow. Vicki is still reeling from her confrontation on the slopes and it obviously clouded her judgment because she was wearing an adults Muppet costume with furry sleeves. She boasted that they're removable, which is a good thing cause she can take them off for dinner so they don't dredge in her food. Fashion meet function, baby!
Last month Vicki Gunvalson was being sued for fraud by her business partner for Vicki's Vodka. According to the suit filed by Robert Williamson III. He claimed Vicki gifted 16% of the company to Brooks Ayers, who then sold that percentage back to him all while Vicki was claiming she and Robert were still 50-50 partners in the business.
Robert also alleged that Vicki was refusing to promote the company according to their agreement and was not living up to contractual obligations. Vicki denied all the accusations, called the suit frivolous, and threatened to counter sue. And then she dumped Brooks.
Gretchen hung out for a few hours, chatting up her fans. The reality star signed autographs and posed for photos (many of which she retweeted over the weekend). She shared after the event, "Another great appearance at Swimspot today! Met so many great people and fans! Thanks to those who came out!"
