As far as Tamra Barney is concerned, she's totally rubber.
Slade Smiley? He's glue, and anything he says bounces off The Real Housewife of Orange County and sticks to Gretchen Rossi's boyfriend.
These two continue to go at one another in public, as Smiley told E! News this week that Barney is delusional for claiming he doesn't pay child support. He also finds it very creepy that Tamra has contacted Slade's ex-wife, Michelle.
Barney has now fired back, explaining to the same site that she and Michelle were introduced through a mutual friend and:
"I feel extremely sorry for her and my heart breaks for her and Grayson. Michelle is a very strong woman and went out of her way to contact me today to tell me that she was proud of me for standing up for her and Grayson and to keep my head up."Does she care about Slade's insults? Yes, although she says otherwise.
"While he accused me of many false and bold lies throughout the entire season, I am not crying to the press about them," she cried to the press. "Why? Simply because his allegations are false. The bottom line is that I don't care what Slade has to say about me. Like Gretchen, he thrives on lies and manipulation."
