The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Vicki Gunvlson: Tamra and I Are Not In a Good Place

July 12, 2012 01:00 PM by Shayla Perry

It was shocking for fans of Bravo‘s Real Housewives of Orange County to see Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi bury the hatchet this season, but unfortunately, as one friendship begins, two seem to be coming to an end. Not only are Gretchen and former BFF Alexis Bellino still on the outs, but Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson have yet to settle their differences. Does Vicki still blame Gretchen for the friendship fallout?

“Tamra and I obviously are not in a good place,” Vicki writes in her Bravo blog following the first half of The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Reunion Special.

“Other than her not accepting Brooks, I really don’t know how or why she decided to do what she did this year to our friendship. We had a strong bond, and I felt that no one or nothing would have ever come between us. We had too much history with each other, and too much genuine care for one another to let things get as bad as they did.”

So what did finally come between the two friends?

Though Vicki still believes that Gretchen “had a lot to do with it,” there’s no denying that Brooks Ayers is at the root of the problem.

Tamra hasn’t been shy about letting everyone know that she’s a little more than skeptical about Ayers and his intentions with Vicki, but Gunvalson wonders why she waited so long to bring up those issues.

According to Vicki, she and Brooks talked to Tamra and Eddie months before Ayers was exposed to the media, and expressed their fears about introducing him to the world.

“They both encouraged us and said we would show everyone our new boyfriends and to show how happy we both were,” Gunvalson explains. “We spent many weekends together. Never once did Tamra even talk to me about her concerns of Brooks– until months later.”

“We were completely honest with them, as we trusted them with our relationship,” Vicki continues. “I guess we were wrong. Where I come from, a true friend supports whatever decision one makes, unless it is life, financially or emotionally threatening. NONE of these are the case with Brooks or I.”

During the Reunion Special, Vicki and Tamra admitted that they miss one another, but will they be able to reconcile as long as Brooks is in the picture?

    Vicki is not in a good place with any of the housewives. Her relationship with Brooks just doesn’t add up. Vicki would never be silent about any of the housewives dating a man like Brooks. She knows this the relationship is far too onesided. The old Vicki would have kicked him to the curb. The new Vicki would alienate her children and friends to be with this man. Vicki needs help now. I miss the old Vicki. She keeps having to tell everyone she’s happy. Perhaps if she says it enough, she will believe it.
