Tamra Barney's Insult to Vicky Gunvalson Wasn't Cool But It Shouldn't Be Friendship-Ending

Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is never one to mince words. In fact, it seems Barney often chooses the harshest terminology possible when speaking to or about other people. Is it right? No. But it's Tamra, and it's doubtful the reality star will turn over a new leaf any time soon. So, when she called Vicky Gunvalson an "ass-kisser" on Monday's episode of Watch What Happens Live, was anybody really that surprised?

The on-again off-again BFF duo that is Barney and Gunvalson currently are at a low-point in their relationship. As of now, the days of mojitos and "woo-hoos" for the pair are long gone, but if history is any indication of what the future will hold for the ladies, it's only a matter of time before they're wearing their matching Pandora bracelets with the best friend charms on them.

While chatting with Andy Cohen on the show, Barney dished about the ongoing feud between Shannon Beador and Heather Dubrow ("Shannon kind of tends to get things lost in translation"), and then, naturally, the conversation landed on Gunvalson. Basically, Barney feels that her former friend is trying to avoid airing her dirty laundry on the show this season (AKA, any and all things having to do with Brooks Ayers), and in turn, said that "the O.G. from the O.C. is being an ass-kisser this year."

A nice thing to say about your friend? Not really. But do any of us really expect anything different from Barney at this point? Although it's not cool that certain people seem to have passes to do and say whatever they want, it is kind of the case with Barney. Hopefully, Gunvalson shares this sentiment, and the pair will be back in each other's arms some time in the near future, which, let's face it, is where they ultimately belong.
