Sadly, Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge did not mend their broken friendship this week on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Although the two met for coffee at Vicki's request, Tamra left before things were resolved. But fans aren't the only ones who think the two Housewives could have tried harder. Vicki's boyfriend Steve Lodge also weighed in with his thoughts about the conversation-turned-argument.
"Well, you know it's easy being the Monday morning quarterback and watching [the episode] and saying, 'Well I would have said this or I would have said that,'" Steve told The Daily Dish podcast. "But in actuality, I think [Vicki] has to come in a little bit softer. I think both of them do. It was obvious that both sat down and neither one was going to back up at all."
When Vicki interjected to say that she did try backing up, Steve said, "But it's very defensive the way [Tamra and Vicki] were both talking to each other. Each one was being very defensive."
Although he doesn't think the sit-down went well, Steve makes it clear he hopes they're able to make peace soon.
"I would love for them to become friends again so they are no longer at each others' throats."
