Tamra Barney Wedding: Gretchen Rossi Invited Last Minute After 'Petty Drama?' [PHOTO]
"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Tamra Barney married her long-time partner Eddie Judge on Saturday and a new report claims co-star Gretchen Rossi scored a last minute invite.
Barney, 45, and Rossi, 35, became close friends in season seven after a year-long feud and while their friendship appeared to be solid at the beginning of season eight, sources claim the pair had yet another falling out. The mother-of-four reportedly decided against inviting Rossi to her nuptials until the very last minute.
"Tamra and Gretchen have had a difficult relationship over the last few months and Tamra was insistent that Gretchen would not be there… not invited," a source told RadarOnline.com.
"But at the eleventh hour, she changed her mind. It was a change of heart. She realized just how important it was to have her there, despite all the petty drama," the source explained.
Barney and Judge wed before family and friends in a lavish ceremony which was held at St. Regis Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California. Season seven "Housewives" addition, Heather Dubrow, was among Barney's bridesmaids and in a surprising twist her on-and-off best friend, Vicki Gunvalson, was also part of the bridal party.
"At the end of the day, Tamra and Vicki have been through too much to let petty fighting get in the way of their friendship," an alleged friend of Barney and Gunvalson told Wetpaint Entertainment.
"When it came to her wedding, Tamra didn't just want Vicki in the crowd, she wanted her by her side," the source continued.
Fellow co-stars Alexis Bellino and Lydia Mclaughlin were both photographed amongst the crowd and Rossi was seated behind them.
"Off-screen, Gretchen and Tamra definitely are not as close as they used to be," the source said.
"If the wedding was was 12 months earlier, she would have been standing alongside Tamra at the altar as a member of the bridal party, but after all that has gone us, Gretchen just didn't make the cut," the source said.
Barney, who allegedly wore three wedding gowns throughout her big day, was photographed wearing a strapless, pale pink custom-made Mark Zunino wedding dress as she and Judge, 40, exchanged "I dos." The groom opted for a traditional black and white tuxedo complete with a white tie.
The wedding marked Barney's third marriage and it will be featured on her very own spinoff show "Tamra's OC Wedding," which premieres on Sept. 2 on the Bravo TV network.
