If you thought that “The Real Housewives of Orange County” was starting to grow stale, just wait until you see what it is store for the season 7 finale airing next week. Things are going to get explosive, and a fissure will be created between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney that may not be repaired for some time.
It’s really unclear what necessarily starts the blowup between the two ladies at Heather Dubrow’s house, though Tamra insinuates that it has to do with Vicki’s boyfriend Brooks trying to drive a wedge between the two of them. She is accused by her co-star (and the only original cast member of the series) of saying some nasty things to Brooks, and also of being drunk.
Tamra’s response? That Vicki can just go off with Brooks and be happy — it’s no skin off her back. It’s hardly the first time that she has been at the center of a major fight on the show — though her previous feud with Gretchen Rossi has since been resolved.
The sad news for Tamra? That this battle is taking away from the joy that is coming up courtesy of her engagement to Eddie Judge. The second part of the finale is set to air on June 26, and it will be followed up soon after by the reunion special.
Who are you siding with at the moment — Tamra, or Vicki?
