So Tamra Barney became Mrs. Judge this weekend in a big wedding filled with all her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars. Yeppers – even the ones she hates. Or pretends to like to stay on Bravo's good side (ahem… Gretchen Rossi). 

I have to hand it to Tamra, for a season and a half she has really been selling us on this whole 'Gretchen is my BFFL and I misjudged her all this time. I'm so happy we made amends' act. I almost believed her. Oh, who am I kidding – we were as likely to buy that as we were to buy a Gretchen Christine Plasticine Sack. 

Now that the Tamretchen fractures are being featured on the show, Tamra is only too eager to reveal that yeah, Gretchen is kinda annoying. In her new blog she complains about Slave Slimey, Gretchen's 'ultimatums' and Lauri Peterson's ulterior motives concerning Tamra's true bestie Vicki Gunvalson


On Lauri, Tamra shares: "Looking back, I see Lauri really has an agenda and wants to bring Vicki DOWN. I had heard that Brooks had been seen out on a few dates around town but I had NEVER heard that he was paying a young girl."

"I am mad at myself for entertaining the conversation. At that time I had not heard that she was saying other things about Vicki. I find it strange that she came back to try and ruin Vicki, yet she is so nice to Vicki's face."

Tamra and Lauri totally have this vendetta stalking thing down pat, don't they. I mean Lauri is stopping at nothing to besmirch and discredit Vicki, just as Tamra stopped at nothing to get ol' Gretchy "naked wasted" and prove she was a gold digging, two-faced trollop with a cheating heart! 

On having a change of heart concerning Alexis Bellino: "When I met Alexis for lunch I told her that we should keep things between us for a while because I didn't want any outside influences. I wanted to get to know Alexis and try and bond on things that we DO have in common and not dwell on the things that we DO NOT have in common."

"It was hard for me to tell Gretchen that I made peace with Alexis, and she really made me feel horrible when she heard I invited her.​"

On Slade's "joke" about Lydia McLaughlin's weight: "Slade making fun of Lydia being too skinny was not nice. He seems to have a pattern of making fun of women — not a nice characteristic in a man. Even if he was joking the part that annoyed me was his passive aggressive/reverse psychology."

"When he was caught he should have said, 'I am sorry I was not trying to hurt your feelings.' Instead he said things like, 'We're all fat and shouldn't eat cheeseburgers, but you should.' When she said you should make fun of women he again made a statement like, 'You're a much better person than me.' That kind of behavior drives me nuts. Take ownership for what you are saying and stop blowing smoke up her ass.

Of course Slade is an ass – wasn't Tamra the one who proved this to us for seasons and seasons when she outed his deadbeatism and skanky grossness?! 

And finally, on Gretchen, her self-obsession, and her Malibu Fauxarbie Fakeness! "I invited everyone to my dress shopping day because it was MY day and I COULD! I did not expect anyone to have a problem with it. Gretchen had no problem being at the Salsa Party with Alexis and even gave her a hug goodbye."

"I was so confused and even considered rescinding the invitation to make Gretchen happy. Gretchen was right, I was not extremely close to Alexis at the time — but I was trying to move on and get her more involved in the group of girls. I did not have drama on my mind. I had dress shopping on my mind."

And of course, what's causing friction in her relationship with Gretchen: "Here is the biggest difference between me and Gretchen: I forgive, forget, and move on. I do not hold a grudge like her. People make mistakes, no one is perfect. But, it is very hard to move on with someone when they wont let things go."

"I wish Vicki and Gretchen could get along. I see both sides and it's hard for me to be neutral."

So Tamra doesn't hold grudges now. Interesting interpretation of how she behaves… Delusional is the new skinny!
