Once a frenemy always a frenemy? In the case of Real Housewives Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi, maybe not. Their relationship has never been made of sunbeams and light. Sure, they tried for a fresh start (friendships bracelets, anyone?) but Gretchen very quickly returned to her old antics. She stretched the truth time and time again. Additionally, she made Tamra feel like she had to be friends with Gretchen, and no one else. We can't blame Tamra for deciding enough was enough.
Still, when major events happen in our lives, the first person we expect to put the pettiness aside is our best friend. With Tamra's recent wedding, Gretchen had a chance to put things right and be there for her friend, the bride. Now we're learning that Gretchen not only fell short in this respect, she might have missed the mark on even the most basic etiquette.
Tamra took to Twitter to vent her latest frustrations with Gretchen. Forget buying a gift, Gretchen didn't even send a card to congratulate Tamra on her wedding to Eddie Judge. Totally rude? Yes. But unexpected? No, not really. As she continues to prove, Gretchen is only interested in Gretchen. This is a classic example of just that.
Or is it? Tamra quickly followed up her tweet with claims that her words had been "exaggerated". Does this mean she and Gretchen are working on their friendship? That's one possibility. The other is that with the premiere of Tamra's new show, Tamra's OC Wedding, she's pulling a Bethenny Frankel and distancing herself from the Real Housewives-drama in order to start a career as a solo-player.
Do you think Gretchen and Tamra are really working on their friendship?
