On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, another little tiff between Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney started to brew. Now Gretchen is claiming that Tamra isn't being exactly honest about her relationship with Alexis Bellino.

Any fan of the show knows that Gretchen and Tamra have a complicated relationship. In their first few seasons on the show together, they were enemies but have recently made up within the last two seasons.

In this particular instance, Gretchen was upset that Tamra invited cast member Alexis to help her pick out a wedding dress, when Gretchen wasn't getting along with Alexis and Tamra had only just made up with her.

"It's very stressful, yes," Gretchen told RadarOnline. "The bottom line is that I am just very straightforward and I don't like anybody that plays both sides and I don't like being played."

Gretchen goes more into detail about the incident involving her castmates: "When somebody is telling me or texting me one thing about a cast member, like Tamra did about Alexis, telling me she didn't invite her dress shopping, and then going up to Alexis and telling her she wanted her to go dress shopping, I just don't like that. And so I'm going to call people out on that."


Gretchen thinks that Tamra inviting Alexis to the bridal gown shopping was an insincere act, and that her displeasure at the thought of being around Alexis was overshadowed by Tamra's alleged phoniness.

"You know if she wanted her there, I'd have no problem with it," she said. "And a lot of people are saying, 'Oh, you're jealous or you're being territorial. You're taking away from Tamra's day.' It had nothing to do with taking away from Tamra's day."

In her defense, she says that it has been well-documented by the show that in the past she has been strictly anti-ruining-people's-big-days.

"I wasn't trying to take away from somebody's day when I felt that Vicki was taking away from Alexis' dress launch day, I was pissed," Gretchen said. "So, my past record is showing the complete opposite of what these women are claiming. The fact of the matter is, I'm not going to pretend. And if somebody is telling me they don't want somebody there and I felt like I was being lied to, I didn't like it."

Gretchen also thinks that it's this brutal honesty that really rubs her fellow housewives the wrong way.

"A lot of people don't like that I am just being honest to who I am and I'm just asking them to be honest."
