We're still digesting all of the drama that was packed into the Real Housewives of Orange County finale this week, where Tamra Barney essentially ended her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson following a nasty blowout with her new boyfriend, Brooks. And even now, months after the incident, things just aren't on the mend for the OC duo.
In an interview with HollywoodLife, Tamra says that she "had no intention of saying anything to Brooks" as she approached the party, and thought that it was going to be a fun, joyous shindig thrown by Heather Dubrow. Instead, there were fights left and right, and her spat with Brooks was a long time coming. And then once he started in with the "evil eye" comments -- "instigator" seemed to ring a bell with Tamra during the interview -- it was on.
"I think the viewers know it's been a buildup the entire season," Tamra says in the interview.
Watch it in its entirety and tell us if you're Team Tamra or Team Vicki in the comments.
Tamra u know what i like u... u tell the truth hey and well sometimes the truth hurts.. some ppl are to stubbern to see all thebad thats around them they go in to deniel and dont wanna face the truth till its to late than when they have no friends and family they will than see what true friends and family she had or has is gone.. An i hope day she will see that.. but one thing to remember always keep your head up..
While I agree that Brooks seems questionable. Vicki is a grown woman and the decision of who she sees, spends money on, sleeps with is her choice. Tamra is such a snake--listen to the things she says & does. Tamra was putting her friend down by the face she made--and Brooks was just protecting his woman. Vicki made a BIG mistake choosing Tamra over Jeana---and Gretchen, honey, better listen to Slade and watch your back. Can hardly wait to see the "Reunion" !!
See, that is a GOOD freind, one who will rejoice your happiness, regardless of her reservations. (Tamra's engagement and Gretchen's happiniess for her, despite her reservations.)
Harsh Vicki - "I want nothing more to do with them" - your friends, who only want to protect you and make sure you are OK. Bad, bad Vicki. Wake up, Brooks makes a lot of folks uncomfortable. Why can't you see what they do? Time will tell.
Tamra did not start this incident - but has in the past. Vicki G. was over-reactive. Too much into Brooks. Yet, I ask - When comparing the two - Why is Tamra MORE in the right, when she and Eddie just became engaged, and Vicki less so, just because there it no ring on it? I think the fact that Vicki's own daughter doubts Brooks speaks volumns...Vicki is blinded by love. Tamra, is now allowiing a new relationship to be explored via an engagement - not yet a final commitment.
Tamra may have started the fight but the girl knows a bad guy when she see ones and he is a cheater and dead beat dad. Its not everyday a house husband gets featured on 20/20 check it out. Run Vivki RUN! I want to see Vioki happy too but Brooks is bad news!!!
From what I saw, Tamara started the incident. Vicki said what are you doing, we're friends. T should have stopped, and acted like the lady she claims to be.
PatBartsch If you can't confront your "friend" - who can you? Tamra didn't start anything - Brooks did.
