Gretchen Rossi Slams Tamra Barney Because She Totally Has It Coming

Tamra Barney

Gretchen Rossi was on Watch What Happens Live the other night, and she spent a fair portion of her time chatting with Andy Cohen about what a lying sociopath she thinks Tamra Barney is. Never in a million years did I think I'd be writing the words that are about to fall from my fingers: Gretchen Rossi is a genius and a teller of truths. I agree with her. Okay, calling her a genius might be a bit of a stretch, but she's barking up the correct sort of outdoor matter when she calls Tamra a lying wench (my words ... I like the word wench).

Gretchen didn't say anything that anyone who watched this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County wouldn't agree with. Tamra can say that she lied and stirred up shit-stew just for the sake of the show and the show alone, but it takes a special kind of awful to decide that that's a reasonable choice to make -- for a paycheck or not! 


I don't think Gretchen's a sociopath. I think she is a walking garbage person, sure, but I also happen to think that she knows the difference between right and wrong and that she cares about that difference. A sociopath just doesn't care. That's where Gretchen "Genius" Rossi's definition was slightly lacking. Tamra's problem isn't that she's mentally unhinged, it's that she's deluded herself into thinking that she is not capable of making any mistakes.

Last I checked, Tamra is not a deity of some sort (if you or someone you know worships at the Church of Tamra Barney, holler at me, I am curious) but is, in fact, a mere mortal. As such, she makes mistakes. If Tamra were to use her readily accessible crocodile tears to admit that she's been a back-stabbing monster, she might start winning back allies. Until that happens, I'm going to have to continue getting used to being (gulp) Team Gretchen. TAMRA HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?!?!?!

What do you think are Gretchen's motives for slamming Tamra?
