Now there seems to be a catfight happening within the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County between Gretchen and Tamra as the two vie for a Bravo wedding of their own. It seems that Gretchen flipped her lid when she found out that Tamra’s hot young rebound lover popped the question and splurged on a ring. Tamra has always been jealous of Gretchen ever since Gretchen joined the cast and threatened Tamra’s self-proclaimed title of “hottest housewife.” Gretchen, in case you have forgotten is the housewife whose previous storyline was getting herself engaged to a wealthy man with a terminal illness on a previous season. According to TMZ Gretchen made $2.5 million dollars off of that endeavor in 2009 and became insulted that Tamra suggested she was in the relationship for financial reasons. Guess what Gretchen’s reaction to the news of Tamra’s engagement was?
Now we know just how long this little Tamra and Gretchen “friendship” will last this season. As soon as the Tamra’s hot boyfriend pops the question and produces a rock, Gretchen goes right back to being Gretchen. I wonder exactly who made the call to Bravo begging for a freebie engagement ring. I really doubt Slade even had the wherewithal to come up with the plan. Leave it to Gretchen to work whatever angle she could to secure more money and a bigger storyline. Bravo not coming through with ANYTHING makes it seem clear that this could well be Gretchen’s last season. Unless she falls in love with another dying rich man.
