They’re no strangers to drama, but the war of words that erupted between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney on The Real Housewives of Orange County season finale this week was extreme even by their standards.
What’s more, it apparently continues on the upcoming reunion show.
“Vicki insinuated that I cheated on my ex-husband, Simon, with [my current fiancé Eddie Judge],” Tamra revealed after Tuesday’s fireworks. “That was just way out of line. Out of anybody in the world, for her to say that, was just totally below the belt.”
Tamra and Vicki’s feuding began on the June 26 finale, and when the pair reunited six months later to film the reunion show, things only got worse.
What’s changed? “It all comes down to Brooks [Ayers],” Tamra says, blaming Vicki’s new man for brainwashing her former BFF. “
“He’s changed her so much, I just don’t know if she’s the same Vicki.”
All season long, Tamra questioned Brooks’ motives. The reason?
“He’s obsessed with the show; I think he’s obsessed with being famous,” says Tamra, who says Vicki is in denial. “I don’t want to see her getting taken advantage of, but she doesn’t want to hear anything anybody says, so my hands are tied.”
“Right now I am extremely angry with her. I’m broken up with her.”
The fight breaks out during part one of the reunion, which airs July 10 at 9 p.m. Tell us: Whose side are you on in the RHOC feud?
