Are Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney starting to patch things up? Despite being friends at one point on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” their relationship crumbled during season 7 thanks largely to some comments that Tamra said about Vicki’s new boyfriend Brooks. She also accused him of trying to keep the two friends apart, and Vicki took issue with this — saying specifically Tamra should be more supportive of her relationship despite what her feelings may be about him.
Unfortunately, time has not healed all wounds between the two. In an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live!” after the show Tuesday, Barney said that things are still tense between her and Vicki — even if she is still convinced that the two may have some opportunities to patch things up in the months ahead:
“It’s strange … We have our business together, but other than that, it’s a few text messages here and there. We kind of hashed it out at the reunion — things got bad — and I’m waiting for everything to settle down.”
The business that Tamra is talking about is her Wines by Wives venture, which is seemingly going strong despite the conflict between the two escalating. While it would be easy to say that these two are never going to get along, remember this — Tamra and Gretchen Rossi had one of the nastiest feuds in the history of the entire “Real Housewives” franchise, and yet the two ended up patching things up at the start of this season to the extent that they are now good friends. If the show continues for an eighth season (which seems likely), these two may even be able to make amends on-camera.
Do you think Vicki and Tamra have any chance of being friends again?
