Well, we alllll knew it was coming! Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi's short-lived friendship is now officially kaput! I wonder if Gretchen returned the friendship bracelet?

Tamra says the bottom really fell out at the recently filmed Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. The nail in the coffin? Weddings wars, of course! And by wedding wars, I mean spinoff competitions. 

"We were friends until we shot the reunion show," Tamra confessed to TVGuide. "It stirred up a lot. They talked about the past and Andy [Cohen] went deep, so it brought back a bunch of nonsense that didn't need to be brought up."


Tamra also confirms that things started getting rocky after Gretchen proposed to Slade Smiley. I so cannot type that without gagging. 

Gretchen "was not in the wedding," Tamra confirms. "We were in an awkward place in our friendship. She had recently proposed to Slade and got engaged and she didn't invite anyone to that party." Gretchen revealed that she didn't want any of the negative and snide ladies to ruin her beautiful day. Makes sense… 

"All of us at the time didn't know where we stood with her and she put it out there that she wasn't friends with any of us," Tamra explains. "I just didn't feel like I wanted someone in my wedding who didn't want to be friends."

I'm sure all of this had nothing to do with Tamra's newly rekindled BFF-dom with Vicki Gunvalson! "Vicki and I are good; we'll always be good," Tamra insists.

"We have our ups and downs and the previous problem was when Brooks came into our life. I just wanted what was best for her, and she didn't want to hear it. I didn't mean any harm to her."

As for her wedding spinoff, which airs NEXT MONTH (heaven help me… And yes, we'll be recapping it!), Tamra assures us it wouldn't be worthy of the Bravo stamp if there wasn't drama. 

"We have a coed bachelor/bachelorette party and let's just say there's drama," Tamra admits. "No guy wants camera looking in on their bachelor party at a strip club."

"What should've stayed in Vegas is not going to stay in Vegas." Eddie Judge echoed. 

Well there you have it, TamWretchen is no more! I'm sad. They were sort of deliciously horrible together and it was fun to watch Gretchen try to suck up to the mean girls.
