As if Tamra Barney hadn't already alienated enough of The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies, she's driving wedges in even deeper with her upcoming wedding. Even though Bravo's given her a big wedding spin-off of her own, we likely won't see many of the other ladies on it at all because Tamra has reportedly banned most of them from her wedding.
Tamra recently told the National Enquirer, "Let's just say not all the Housewives will be invited." Not so surprisingly, Alexis Bellino is at the top of the do-not-admit list, despite the efforts of Vicki Gunvalson.
A source told the magazine:
Vicki had been trying to smooth things over. She was hoping to broker an end to the feud so that Tamra would invite Alexis to the wedding. But Alexis just couldn’t resist taking another shot at Tamra — and that ended any change of getting all the ‘Housewives’ together. Both Tamra and Eddie want nothing to do with Alexis
Actually, Vicki herself may not even get an invite. When asked if she'd be invited, Tamra told the magazine, "Um, maybe." Wow, I bet Vicki can't wait to RSVP with an enthusiastic response like that.
That's fine. It would be nice if she used this occasion to bring everyone together and mend fences, but it's Tamra's big day, and she should be able to invite only those who she wants. And frankly, I doubt any of them are dying for an invite anyway, except Gretchen Rossi. Tamra hasn't been exactly kind to any of the rest of them, and after she threw Alexis out of her gym-warming party, they're probably a little scared to be near her on her wedding day. Let's face it, if ever there was a bridezilla, Tamra certainly is prime for the role.
She reportedly is relishing this opportunity to create even more drama too. A source said: "This wedding may be tearing the cast apart, and Tamra loves it." So much for that nicer, kinder leaf she was going to turn over.
Which ladies do you think will end up attending Tamra's wedding? Do you think it will drive an even bigger wedge between the ladies?
