On last night's Watch What Happens Live After Show, a caller posed a tricky question to Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney: If she was trapped on a desert island, would she rather be marooned with Gretchen Rossi's beau Slade Smiley or Vicki Gunvalson's now-ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers?

"That's a really messed-up question," Barney replies.

"I can't answer that question," she finally says, adding the reunion special the OC ladies just taped was "tragic" and "epic." "There was a lot of raw emotions, and for once I wasn't in the hot seat."

Later, another caller wanted to know: "What's everybody's real feeling about Brooks and Vicki?" Last week, Gunvalson confirmed the troubled couple recently called it quits.

"Well, first and foremost I want Vicki to be happy," Barney replies. "I think Vicki has so much to offer...I just feel maybe there's somebody better for her out there."

Watch Tamra Barney share her thoughts on Brooks Ayers and Vicki Gunvalson's relationship and tell us in the comments: was Brooks a bad match for Vicki?
