Two Housewives With One Stone! Vicki Gunvalson Razzes Friend Tamra Barney — & Enemy Gretchen Rossi — On ‘WWHL’

The Real Housewives of Orange County’s ninth season premiere aired on Bravo Monday, and who better to appear on Watch What Happens Live than original cast member Vicki Gunvalson, who provided ringmaster Andy Cohen with a few salacious soundbites to riff off of.

Asked if she’d miss former castmate Gretchen Rossi, Gunvalson delivered a resolute “No,” resulting in an uncomfortable silence she later broke with her blunt explanation.

“No, I’m not going to miss her,” Gunvalson, 52, said. “She was such a liar and such a troublemaker, I’m ready for clean, fresh, new happy people!”

While the Rossi digs were clearly fueled by longtime hard feelings, even Gunvalson’s pal Tamra Barney caught a bit of shrapnel in a segment called “Good Witch, Bad Witch” when Cohen asked Gunvalson to compare Barney and former cast member Jeana Keough.

“I like them both, but Jeana is probably better than Tamra,” a statement that coaxed an immediate Twitter response from the currently-embattled Barney.

“So I’m hearing Vicki just called me a witch on Wwh is that true?” she asked, which was soon addressed on the air.

“I would have picked Tamra,” the Coto de Caza, Calif. native said, “but I couldn’t at that moment” because of a graphic effect that had her pal’s head in a witchy green tone.

Barney tweeted that all was well, writing, “You better love me @vgunvalsonI love you @vgunvalson. Don’t be mean to me on Wwh. I’m fragile right now.”
