“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Barney was caught slamming her friend and co-star Gretchen Rossi recently, which was surprising for many. Tamra slammed Gretchen’s songs and admitted that the two have had their hiccups after making up, but no one thought that she would ruin their friendship with rude comments to the media. And after learning of the comments, Gretchen is speaking out about the drama. According to a new report from All the Real Housewives released on Mar. 7, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Barney is denying that she said those things, even though Gretchen is keeping an open mind since the website claims that they have Tamra’s statements recorded.
Gretchen sat down with the website to share her reaction to the comments supposedly made by Tamra. “I was surprised to hear she questioned the friendship she has with me. Her and I talk often and I certainly did not know she felt this way, however I’m not naive to the fact that we had some hiccups this season as all friendships do. I think I have realized with her that when you call her out about things she goes on the attack and lashes back at you,” Gretchen reveals. “She also says she is not here to make friends and this is a job for her at the end of the day, which I respect, but for me I am not willing to lose my integrity or the way I treat others to keep my paycheck. I think we can all have our opinions in a very authentic and adult like manner without assassinating someone’s character or business just so we make good TV. Funny thing is Tamra actually asked me in one scene this year how I know so much about so many things and how I know how to deal with them so well. I laughed and said “I don’t really, I just live and learn”. I think even though both brutally honest Tamra and I go about it differently when we deliver that information. Her way works for her and my way works for me.”
It sounds like Gretchen is willing to stand by her friend Tamra until she hears the supposed recordings. Do you think Gretchen is right in responding to the press, who wants her to believe that Tamra threw her under the bus?
