We've got a sneak peek of Tamra Barney's wedding and her dress! As we were working on a post about Tamra's wedding and her co-stars' sharing photos leading up to the ceremony, a Reality Tea reader sent us photos of the big event happening! Our reader happened to be at Tamra and Eddie Judge's wedding venue this evening (the St. Regis Monarch Beach) and snapped a few pics of the excitement – and the Bravo cameras getting it all on film for her spinoff special.
The first photo shows the ceremony as it's going on. Unfortunately, we can't get it zoomed in enough to see if Vicki Gunvalson is really a bridesmaid. I want to say that the first woman in the attendant line is Vicki, but I can't say for sure. The ceremony looks gorgeous, I'll give them that!
Our reader also snapped Tamra and Eddie coming down the aisle toward the cameramen.
Both Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow have confirmed their invitations, and now Alexis Bellino is doing the same. Hey, it's not a Bravo wedding without drama. Despite rumors to the contrary, Alexis will watch Tamra walk down the aisle. Third time's the charm!
Of course, it works out well…now Alexis will have some screen time on Tamra's OC Wedding spin-off!
If you're not up to speed on the suit that Robert Williamson III has filed against Vicki and on-again, off-again beau Brooks Ayers, you can see the long, detailed version here and the short version here. Basically she tried to gift Brooks a chunk of the company and then Brooks tried to sell it back to Robert.
Vicki had previously stated that she would work to clear the matter up, sharing that Robert's lawsuit was frivolous. This week she took to Facebook to share that she's filing her own countersuit if Robert doesn't immediately drop his lawsuit.
Vicki reveals that she and Lauri had a "cordial" relationship as acquaintances for years after she left the show. The two even appeared on WWHL together last year with no malice. And she explains the phone call from George's MIL that seems to be behind Lauri's animosity.
"I received a phone call from George’s ex-mother-in-law at my work who proceeded to tell me some 'not so nice' things about George. She told me that her ex-son in law (George) was 'not so nice' to his children and her daughter and that I should let Lauri know this. Since Lauri was a new friend of mine, I really didn't know what to do with this information. I was not real close with her, but she did work for me and I didn't want to get in her personal relationship with George, nor did I want to hurt her with this information because I didn't know if it was true or just malicious information."
This weekend Vicki Gunvalson got slammed with a lawsuit related to her Vicki's Vodka line. Vicki was accused by her business partner, Robert Williamson III of "gifting" 16.67 % of her share to Brooks Ayers, who then proceeded to sell it back to Robert claiming he was broke.
Robert's suit attests that Vicki and Brooks then conspired together in an attempt to have the business returned to a 50-50 partnership between Robert and Vicki despite him buying Brooks' percentage from him. Conveniently the Real Housewives of Orange County star's social media was also "hacked" that very same day.
Well now that her Facebook is up and running, Vicki is confronting the lawsuit and insisting it is baseless. "My attorney will be filing a response to the frivolous suit within the next day or so," Vicki announced.
"This response will reveal my side of the story and the lack of truth that was told. There will be more details to follow shortly. Thank you for your support. The truth always prevails." We anxiously await.
I'm sure the Mexican government is bogged down with the drug war, but they also need to turn their attentions to a more pressing issue: The Battle For Tamra Barney. I predict a full-fledged blonde extensions tearing, botox rearranging, wine bottle throwing, Gretchen Christine Plastic Sack swinging, stiletto stabbing, lip gloss jabbing, boob job deflating battle on next week's episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Get the popcorn ready!
On last night's episode the ladies remained in Mexico to terrorize the locals. Vicki Gunvalson decided it was high time she reasserted herself as the true BFF of Tamra, so she smuggled her out to a Mexican bar and forced her to woodenly shake her butt on the bar like they were 20. You can just call her Vicki FUNvalson!
Oh ladies… Grannies Gone Wild! Poor Lydia McLauglin, forced into light-up Minnie Mouse ears that were leftovers from a Disney on Ice performance in the area, didn't even look like she was having fun but was putting on a drunk act to fit in.
Like twoseconds after the scandal broke, the Real Housewives of Orange County star's twitter and facebook conveniently disappeared. Well now Vicki is insisting her social media was hacked. A likely story… #WeDontBelieveYou
Tamra Barney's wedding spinoff is getting both a name and a premiere date. Lucky us!
It's clear whomever usually comes up with the titles for these shows was on vacation (or hates Tamra too) because according to the Bravo press release the "limited run, three-part series" will be called "Tamra's OC Wedding". How creative!
Premiering on Sept 2nd Tamra and Eddie Judge will get three episodes to show off their love before being relegated back to the loser ensemble cast category. That is strangely reassuring because it means Bravo definitely has no plans to do a full-time Tamra show!
