Uh Oh. Looks like these two are not going to be BFF any longer after this story came out! TMZ is reporting that RHOC star Gretchen Rossi is telling friends that Tamra Barney’s new engagement is all based on a “money-grubbing lie” that is all set up for the show by producers for a dramatic finale!
producers originally approached Gretchen’s BF Slade about proposing — hoping he’d pop the question in time for the show’s big finale this year. We’re told producers even attempted to bribe Slade with an exotic proposal destination … and a FREE RING. We’re told Slade turned the offer down — convinced the public already hated him enough without a fake proposal — so producers turned to Tamra and her BF Eddie Judge out of spite.We’re told Tamra and Eddie instantly snatched up the proposal package — and her whole proposal was then conveniently filmed for the show … at the same exotic location that was allegedly offered to Slade.
After the story was released, Tamra went to her Facebook to write, “After reading the TMZ article that was released. I hope that Gretchen does the RIGHT thing. This is a very hurtful story about my engagement. This is a special time in my life and to have a cast member try an knock me down out of jealousy is very hurtful. Im sorry Bravo wouldn’t buy your ring and send you to Italy. Eddie did it his way on his dime! Bottom line is if you love someone the size of the ring and where you propose really doesn’t matter.”
Gretchen has since denied the claims saying people are just trying to stir up things with her and Tamra and that they “need to stop making up lies!”
A viewer tweeted Tamra saying, “but this is the girl you are breaking your neck to be friends with! SMH” Tamra responded, “not anymore!” Do you think Gretchen is lying?
