I'm not sure if you remember, but last year Tamra Barney almost died from a hernia.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star had emergency surgery which rendered her bellybutton-less, but now she is bragging that her health scare gave her abs of steel! Hey, that's looking on the bright side.
"They had to reconstruct my whole stomach," Tamra shared with E! News. "It was really, really bad. I almost died." Tamra says that part of her "intestines were dying" because the hernia burst. Ewwwww….

"The scary thing was I was supposed to go to Mexico the next morning and had I gotten on the airplane, they said it probably wouldn't have been able to get down in time," Tamra reveals. Perhaps the near death experience is what led her to revisit her past and turn over a new, nicer leaf…
Naaaahhh… that was just a ploy for a storyline!
A side effect of the surgery, besides the no bellybutton thing, is that she literally has a steel plate in her stomach. "I have, like, abs of steel—feel it," Tamra joked. Because she has Superwoman abs, Tamra also can't have anymore kiddos. Which is fine for the mom of four who confirms, "No more. I'm 45 years old."
