It now seems the Real Housewives of Orange County star is ready to go public with her new relationship. According to RadarOnline, Tamra herself posted the above photo of she and Eddie on her facebook page. This is all just less than 2 months after her husband Simon Barney filed for divorce, accusing her of cheating on him. Tamra has always denied she cheated.
Simon also claimed he found out about the romance by catching the two of them together at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. He said, “I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed — the ultimate betrayal by a pal and my estranged wife.”
“We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year,” said Tamra when she confirmed the new relationship to Radar.
She continued, “We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both would start dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later.”
The finale of the 2nd season of For The Love of Ray J aired last night with 33 year old Mz Berry aka Connie Deveaux beating out Platinum to win the heart of Ray J, or did she?
The question on everyone’s minds is are they still together? The answer to that seems to be NO, coming from Mz Berry’s new interview with VH1. According to her, she and Ray J have barely made any contact since the show finished filming months ago. The winner of the show and the person looking for love are usually discouraged from contacting each other, as not to give away the show’s results, however in the past shows, it has been very common for the two to stay in touch and see each other if they really wanted to.
In other words, Ray J could have made an effort to see and contact the winner of his show if he was genuinely interested. Plus the following photos of Ray J were snapped of him and an unknown lady back in October 2009. Ray J can be seen hugged up and kissing the lady, who has been described to us by sources as being his 20 year old girlfriend. According to the source, Ray and this girl have been together for a while, and were together the entire time he was filming the 2nd season of his show.
As we also previously reported, Ray J broke up with season 1 winner, Cocktail, just so he could do a second season. By the way, he finished filming his second season in early October. These photos were taken around October 26th. You can put two and two together. The photos courtesy of TheYbf.com are below –
The two lovebirds were snapped leaving Hawaii after a vacation. These photos were taken just a week before his show was set to premier last year. The good news is we do get a Reunion show, so it will be interesting to see what Ray has to say about his “relationship” with Mz Berry.
Excerpts from Mz Berry’s interview is below –
How has communication with Ray been since the show wrapped?
Really, Ray and I aren’t allowed to speak to each other. We aren’t allowed to meet or anything like that.
Do you have a good feeling about where things are going?
We just have to see. You can’t really base on everything that happened with us three, four months ago. I wouldn’t say feelings change, but you just have to see. In any type of relationship, you just take it one step at a time. We’ll definitely both talk about what we want, and we’ll see where it goes from there.
Are you excited to see him at the reunion?
Yes, very excited. I’m a little nervous, but very excited.
Even more shocking? Simon is accusing his wife of infidelity. This is quite ironic as tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of OC deals with the couple’s marital troubles.
In the divorce papers Simon wrote: “Petitioner contends that Respondent has been verbally abusive and has committed acts of disloyalty and infidelity.” According to a source close to the couple, Tamra reportedly moved out of their million dollar home earlier this week and into a two-bedroom apartment.
Simon and Tamra have been married for 11 years. They have three children together in addition to Tamra’s son from a previous marriage. “Simon has simply had enough,” the source said. “The show changed her.” The source adds that though they had been having marital problems for the past couple of years, Tamra did not know that Simon was filing divorce papers, even after she moved out of their home.
It is interesting to see Simon accuse his wife of being unfaithful as viewers know Tamra has been very vocal and critical of fellow cast member Gretchen Rossi, claiming Gretchen cheated on former fiancé Jeff Beitzel.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? ARE YOU SURPRISED?
UPDATE: A rep for Bravo tells UsMagazine that Tamra has “no comment” at this time . She will however be opening up next week on Bravo. “She is going to share her story first on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Show hosted by Andy Cohen, airing next Thursday at midnight.”
We recently wrote about the downside of appearing on a reality show such as the Real Housewives of Orange County. The first downside being that your ‘perfect’ marriage that you pride yourself on will come off as being not so perfect in front of millions of viewers, while your husband’s cutesy behavior might come off as being somewhat controlling.
The second downside it seems is skeletons from your closet being unveiled. New housewife on the block, Alexis Bellino, is now experiencing this as her first husband, Jeff Barry, is spilling all sorts of sordid details about the couple’s first marriage and nasty divorce to Star magazine. And oh yeah, there are pictures too.
In the latest issue of Star magazine, it is revealed that Alexis and Jeff got married back in 2002 after 3 years of dating. The Missouri college sweethearts would later go on to divorce in 2003 after just 15 months of marriage. Reasons for their divorce includes infidelity, boozy brawls, computer hacking, physical threats and missing money. “We had been college sweethearts in Missouri,” Jeff, 31, a sales engineer, tells Star. “I never dreamt back then that things between us could turn so ugly.”
More details about Alexis’s first marriage below –
The couple moved to San Diego shortly after their 2002 wedding. “We were young and didn’t have a lot of money.” says Jeff. “Then Alexis…started hanging out with trust fund babies. Having the right pair of expensive jeans became important to her.”
Eventually, Jeff discovered his wife was having an affair with a wealthy father of three she met at the gym.
“I gave Alexis endless opportunities to fess up, but she kept denying everything,” says Jeff. “Then she said she needed her space, moved into her own place and asked me to go to therapy with her. But she only went twice, she made no effort at all.”
Jeff pretended to be a friend of Alexis’s and started emailing her under false pretenses. His suspicions were confirmed that Alexis was indeed sleeping with the married wealthy man.
Jeff then sent a mass email out to couple’s friends and family, in which he referred to Alexis as a “gold-digging homewrecker,” and a “$2 whore.“
In the divorce filing, Jeff said of Alexis, “She can be an extremely mean, irrational drunk… She once took off her top in front of my best man to make me mad because she was upset that I smoked a cigarette.”
The couple’s divorce was finalized in June 2004. According to Jeff, he hasn’t had any contact with Alexis in four years.
“I’m not surprised she ended up on a show like Real Housewives,” says Jeff, who is now remarried. “She just seems to have even bigger boobs, a nose job and blonder hair now.”
According to Star magazine, Alexis declined to comment on this article.
The question on a lot of people’s minds is whether or not the couples are still together. Well the finale was shot in June, and according to Hot Wings aka Kamille Leai, she and Chance are no longer an item. Doll confirms she and Real are no longer together as well.
Hot Wings posted the following messages on her Twitter, revealing that Chance never got in touch with her once the show finished filming. She reveals the same went for Doll. She says she did not find love on the show, and even jokes about a 3rd season. Her tweets are below —
first off, let me just say that i heard from chance ONE TIME since we shot the show back in June, and it was thru twitter….7 minutes agofrom web
neone surprised!!! lmao..so NO i really didnt “WIN” the show. i did NOT find love with chance, HELL i cant even find chance PERIOD!!!7 minutes agofrom web
much love and respect to chance but i never heard from him after the show, and neither did doll from real..so what are we suppose to do?!?!6 minutes agofrom web
it was a great experience, chance is still a great guy,at least he got what he wanted, and that was a show..cant wait for season 3..hehe3 minutes agofrom web
Doll has also confirmed she and Real are no longer together in a new interview with VH1.
So it’s officially not going to happen with Real?
Yeah, it’s officially not there. We don’t have a relationship established of that sort. I’m a beautiful, well-rounded girl. I’m looking for love and I’m sure any guy would love to be with me, so I’m not worried about the situation. When did it become clear to you that things weren’t working out?
It became clear about a month after the show was over. I mean, are you kidding me? For a guy not to contact me for a whole month after we supposedly became close? You picked me out of the 10 or 15 other girls that were on the show for you. And I wasn’t pursued a month after that?
It’s quite funny because these two douches spent their entire time on the show whining about wanting to find love, and accusing all the women of being on the show for the wrong reasons, when in actuality, they had zero intentions of committing to any of the ladies. It’s safe to say we will be hearing an announcement about a 3rd season any day now.
The Real Housewives of New York Citystar had hoped to wait until she was further along to break the news, but a Monday report by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, has forced Bethenny, 38, to admit she is 2 months pregnant.
“It’s premature to be telling people this,” she tells PEOPLE while fighting back tears. Bethenny had hoped to keep her pregnancy a secret a bit longer and is not too pleased that her fiance Jason Hoppy‘s parents had to find out about it through the media.
“It’s not like, ‘Did I Get Botox?’ It’s not the way I wanted it to get out,” she says. “I haven’t even gone through my first trimester. We haven’t even heard the heartbeat. My [fiancé’s] parents didn’t even know.”
She and Jason are however “both so excited,” says Bethenny. Still, she adds that because the pregnancy is early and due to her age, “I am praying everything is okay but I don’t know that yet.”
And since this is Bethenny, she had to add a little humor to the situation. “I got to be honest, we are both feeling kind of proud of ourselves. We are both 38 and we were like, ‘Listen, your fish can swim and I am fertile.’ So that’s exciting.”
Bethenny says she and Jason plan on tying the knot before the baby arrives.
Congrats to Bethenny. She looks rather happy lately. I do feel bad that she is forced to confirm her 2 months pregnancy due to the media, which includes us. Our blog is however a bit different because we don’t break the news, we simply report on what is out there. Unfortunately once Perez Hilton, whose blog reaches millions a day, broke the story, it was already out there and we sort of have to report about it. Not sure if Perez knew she was only 2 months along, highly doubt it would have changed his perspective on breaking the story though.
