If Gretchen Rossi does indeed return to The Real Housewives of Orange County for its 11th season, she’ll likely get into major drama with Tamra Judge. On Wednesday, Tamra posted an Instagram message about the upcoming Season 10 three-part reunion show. When a viewer brought up Gretchen in the comments, Tamra made a dig at Gretchen.
The viewer wrote that she got the feeling from Vicki tweeting about Vicki Gunvalson during Vicki’s Monday night Watch What Happens Live appearance that she wants to come back on Real Housewives and become Vicki’s best friend. Tamra replied that Gretchen would do anything to return to the show, and is trying everything possible to make it happen. She added that they’re all laughing about it.
“She would sell her soul to the devil to come back. She’s trying everything possible. We are all laughing about it.”
Tamra didn’t specify who she meant when she wrote “we are all.” Does she mean that the current cast of the show, which besides Tamra and Vicki includes Meghan King Edmonds, Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow, and Lizzie Rovsek (as a “recurring” housewife), is laughing about Gretchen’s so-called desperation?
Some people took offense to what Tamra said about Gretchen. One viewer pointed out that Tamra’s dig at Gretchen wasn’t a very Christian thing to do. The viewer asked why Tamra, who was shown getting baptized on the season finale episode and vowing to change her ways, just can’t stay silent, and suggested perhaps she’s intimidated by Gretchen, since Gretchen is younger than her.
Vicki Gunvalson appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live talk show on Monday night after the airing of the Season 10 season finale episode. During her live appearance, Gretchen Rossi tweeted her thoughts on Vicki was saying and what has happened to Vicki this past season.
In response to Vicki saying that the other housewives should have kept their opinions to themselves when it came to Brooks Ayers, a viewer tweeted that Vicki, who is very opinionated about other people’s relationships, needs to realize that it works both ways. Gretchen agreed with the viewer, and said that hopefully Vicki will learn and change from the season.
As Vicki was talking about her failed relationship with Brooks Ayers on Watch What Happens Live, Gretchen tweeted to host Andy Cohen and the show that she thinks that Vicki should ignore what the others are saying and instead listen to her own heart. Gretchen added that Vicki is a smart woman and knows whether Brooks is a good man or not. She ended her tweet with the hashtag “#TrustmeIknowmorethananyonehowshefeels,” a reference to the fact that her own relationship with Slade Smiley has been, and continues to be, questioned and ridiculed by some.
After a fan told Gretchen Rossi that her advice was very big of her to give, since Vicki Gunvalson constantly disrespected her relationship with Slade Smiley, Gretchen wrote that she’s hopeful that Vicki, having gone through intense scrutiny this season over Brooks, now realizes that her past behavior towards her wasn’t very nice.
Thank u, but I'm hopeful she realizes now after going through all this, that it wasn't very nice.
Gretchen also added that one can only hope and pray that Vicki changes from the experience and that the reason why she never judges herself is the fact that things always come back full circle, a reference to Vicki now being the victim of the kind of behavior that she perpetrated in the past.
That's why I always say never judge
While Gretchen was very opinionated about Vicki, she kept her mouth shut when it came to Tamra. When a fan asked her when she’s coming back on the show to prove that Tamra hasn’t changed at all, Gretchen only posted some emojis that indicated that she’s ignoring Tamra.
During her own appearance on Watch What Happens Live a few weeks ago, Gretchen argued with Shannon Beador over whether Tamra Judge has really changed.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Vicki Gunvalson said last Sunday that she would rather have Gretchen Rossi return to The Real Housewives of Orange County than Meghan King Edmonds, her big enemy this past season. Vicki commented that Gretchen at least has a sweet heart, which Meghan does not. Gretchen subsequently said that Vicki’s comment about her was “very kind.” Now that Vicki is alienated from the rest of the cast, perhaps she’ll push for Gretchen’s return in the hopes of having one strong ally for next season?
