Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson are cool again. The only original cast member Real Housewives of Orange County Vicki Gunvalson and on-again-off-again friend Tamra Barney’s friendship has been a roller coaster from the start.
The pair called a very tentative truce a few episodes back, Tamra tested the waters by inviting Gunvalson to a dinner party at her not-yet-opened new health club, C.U.T. Fitness O.C. Vicki accepted and then, extended an invite to fellow housewife and enemy of Tamra’s, Alexis Bellino. Although Tamra and Alexis weren’t on speaking terms last year, Alexis accused Tamra of bullying her and even threatened to sue her Tamra reluctantly allowed Alexis to attend her bash.
Once the dinner party, also attended by Gretchen Rossi, Heather Dubrow and the newest cast member Lydia McLaughlin, got underway, the proceedings quickly devolved into an ugly war of words between Alexis and Tamra with the hostess angrily pulling out Alexis’s chair and screaming, “Get the f— out! Get out now!”
Tamra also had a warning for Vicki, “Vicki, you can choose your side right now. If you’re gonna side with her, then you get the f— out too. Done!”
So, how are things now for Vicki and Tamra? “We got back together,” Tamra assured Us Weekly during a recent visit to their New York office. “We’re dating again!”
