‘The Real Housewives Of Orange County:’ The Originals Are Back

By: Jillian Bowe / April 2, 2013

The Real Housewives of Orange County returned to claim their spot as the original divas of dysfunction. Time still hasn’t healed the rift between former BFF’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney. The last time the two were in a room together, it was nearly a bloodbath.

Why won’t Vicki and Tamra kiss and make up already? After the way the two left their relationship once the reunion episode ended, it was obvious to say they wouldn’t have a spa day consisting of braiding each other’s hair over international coffee. Even though both Vicki and Tamra claimed they would not reach out to the other, the two just couldn’t stop focusing on each other during tonight’s entire episode!

While Tamra was out shopping with new bestie Gretchen Rossi, all Tamra talked about was the vicious email Vicki sent her, and her refusal to send the insurance mogul her best regarding the birth of her first grandchild. Meanwhile, Vicki claimed, “I’m all about renovating right now,” but all she kept renovating (besides her new face) over is what would Tamra and Gretchen think about her plastic surgery.

Listen, we get it’s hard to say you’re sorry, but either do it and move forward or stop the catty trash talk behind the other’s back! Clearly Vicki, Tamra, and Gretchen have some serious issues to work out amongst each other, but focusing so much on the other person isn’t going to get things squared away.

As the ladies all made their way to Heather DuBrow’s place for a clambake, the tension mounted when Vicki, Tamra and Gretchen came face-to-face with each other. Will the women work out their differences? Stay tuned.
