Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson

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.
