Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi: What Started the Feud?

by at . Comments

Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi of The Real Housewives of Orange County are engaged in a full-scale beef. Again. But what was the catalyst this time?

According to reports, it began with a lie that was caught on camera:

“It started when Alexis Bellino was invited to an event by Tamra. Gretchen was upset that Tamra would invite Alexis when Gretchen is no longer friends with her."

"Gretchen contacted Tamra off camera about this, and Tamra denied inviting her blaming it on producers!” an insider told celebrity gossip site Radar.

Apparently, the Bravo film crew caught the big lie on tape.

“When cameras were rolling, Tamra would say a total different story. Turns out it was Tamra who invited Alexis, and she was lying to Gretchen about it."

At the end of the day, "Tamra did take responsibility for it, but things became a little different between them.” Tension apparently has lingered ever since.

Gretchen Rossi is also furious with Tamra Barney for slamming her singing, but she’s tried to reach out to her friend to no avail. So it goes in the OC.

“I haven’t talked to her since it all went down last week, but I plan on talking to her in person like an adult,” Tamra quipped about Gretchen recently.

The show returns Monday, April 1. Choose your side!


I was a long time fan of Tamara's. Have followed her facebook page for years. Never posted on it.. Only occasionally liked a post she had. She recently posted at the beginning of the season. "Did you really think I was bullying Alexis". ( something close to that). it was the first time I had noticed she was asking for fans opinions. I wrote and said. "Tamara, you have been my favorite from the beginning. Lord knows we all have character flaws. That night at the dinner it seemed like everyone was only mentioning Alexi's. So I apologize but it did seem to come off a big like bullying. NOTHING mean. Out of line.. WELLL... After that Tamara disabled me from further liking any of her posts or commenting. I honestly lost a lot of respect for her as a person.She has been known to say on the show. "you can dish it, but you cant take it".. Well that seemed to be the case with her in real life. Then as I read other posters comments on RROOC on facebook page. I found out she does it to a lot of viewers. Then the show continued this season, and her behavior was ridiculous. Sadly no longer a fan of this show.. I would not pick team Tamara or Gretchen. The show turned into a screaming match.


I can't get behind either of of these women. Tamra lies constantly, I loved her revisionist explanation she gave Eddie when she was telling him about the conversation she had with Vicki when they supposedly made up at Heather house. Tamra is a coward who lies through her teeth and is a bully when she has her pack of wenches backing her up, I use to feel sorry for Gretchen but she is no better.


You should be ashamed of yourself acting like a 12 year old.Where is all the class that I thought you ladies had...(Using ladies lightly) Just a bunch of bullies, you make me sick to my stomach...A good reason to stop watching this show..Hopefully your kids turn out just like you>>


Tamra is just foul. She is one of the meanest, nastiest, trashiest looking and acting person I've ever seen. She would be perfect on Myrtle Manor. She should have marks all over her from all of those 10-foot poles used to avoid her like the plague. What is wrong with Eddie? He could do soooo much better!


After Gretchen sleeps with that old guy for his money, Tamra says she's sleeping with another guy while the old guy's dying. Gretchen goes nuts. Next season, suddenly they are friends. Next season...hmmm...they are enemies again. Whoever is writing these storylines needs to be FIRED!! They should have these skanks sleeping with each other's husbands...at least that would create ratings. What? They won't go there?? Ha. Guess again, Andy. Just throw some money at them or threaten to cancel their contracts. Tamra would sleep with Slade or Brooks if you offer more money or more plastic surgery.


be honest: WHO CARES?
.....not me.

@ abe

Agreed.. Stop watching the show this year. Tired of Gretchen and Tamara. Enough Bravo.. They both need to go
