Real Housewives of Orange County

Tamra Barney Duzoxin

“A lie is a lie is a lie is a lie,” was one of Tamra Barney’s favorite quotes on the last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Interesting quote considering that’s what she’s been doing all year.

First the OC mom lied about her relationship with new beau Eddie Judge, you can read all about that here. And now she has chosen to lie about her affiliation and usage of weight loss drug, Duzoxin.

A reader emailed us a conversation Tamra had with a friend on her facebook page, during which which she denied taking the weight loss drug, and even denied having anything to do with the company.  A quick check to Tamra’s facebook two days ago showed the conversation. She seems to have now deleted it from her page. The coversation is below -

Christi -  Tamra. Does Duzoxin really work? Does it make you feel like your loaded on caffeine or is it an even energy and metabolism heightner?2 hours ago ·
Tamra Barney I do not take it… I have nothing to do with that company

Christi -  Ok great. I saw the video they had posted and was thinking about ordering it if you said it worked.

Christi - Do you know of something that does work? With all the weight loss/maintaining drugs out there it would be nice to know of some that actually work.
Tamra Barney – be very careful taking any diet pill. have you tried a green tea fat burner? I use to take lipo 6 and it worked for me

As you can see from the above photo, Tamra was a spokeperson for the company along with some of her fellow co-stars.  Not only that, her page and personal testimonial is still up on the company’s site – at http://www.duzoxintv.com/tamra/.  She gave the following testimonial below -

“As a mom, reality TV star, and a busy woman, I have tried many different products in the past to help me with my workout regimen.  Nothing I have tried so far has come close to what Düzoxin has done for me.  I’ve just started taking Düzoxin, and judging by how wonderful the other girls look and feel, I have a feeling I’ll be taking Düxoxin for a very long time to come.  Thank you Düzoxin for making my life just a bit easier!”

It’s a wonder she and Gretchen Rossi don’t get along better, they both seem to have A LOT in common.

Has OC Darling Gretchen Rossi been caught in another lie? Rumors hit the web last week that the Real Housewivew of Orange County star was lying about creating her make up line and more importantly, she was accused of lying about the Jeff Beitzel Foundation she claimed to have created on behalf of her late fiance, Jeff Beitzel.

There was only one problem, no one could find out any proof that such a foundation existed, causing Gretchen to go on her facebook page and defend herself. She claimed, “The Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund is with the Leukemia Society in O.C.! People can make donations 2 this fund directly by writing “For the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund.”

There’s only one problem however. The Jeff Beitzel Foundation does in fact NOT exist with the Leukemia Soceity in O.C. How do we know that? Well that comes directly from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. One of our savvy readers, Help Me Rhonda, decided to email the Leukemia Society, inquiring about the foundation, and the response she received is below -

“It appears there was a misunderstanding about the establishment of a “Jeff Bietzel Memorial Fund.” or a “Jeff Bietzel Foundation.” The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has not set up a fund in Jeff Bietzel’s name. Any donations sent to LLS in honor of Jeff Bietzel will be used to support LLS’s mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life for patients and their families.”

So basically the Jeff Beitzel Foundation Gretchen claimed to have created does NOT exist. And Gretchen has claimed via multiple media outlets that she created this foundation.

Back in January, the OC star wrote on her bravo blog“Download the song on iTunes, and proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Jeff Beitzel Foundation I started in Jeff’s honor.”

And then the following was also written on her myspace page“Gretchen has decided that she will be donating proceeds from the release of this song to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Jeff Beitzel Foundation she has created.

Note the key words used, she claimed she “started” the Jeff Beitzel Foundation in her Bravo blog, and then claimed she “created” the foundation on her myspace page. Not sure why Gretchen feels the need to lie or embellish something like this. She should have just said, proceeds from her song will be donated to the Leukemia Society in honor in Jeff. This isn’t the first time the OC star has been caught in a lie. She first denied ever being romantically involved with Jay Photoglou, before incriminating photos of the duo were leaked all over the web.

UPDATE #2 – The following statement was issued by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) :

“In conversations that took place last year between Gretchen Rossi and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) there was  a  miscommunication   concerning the establishment of a Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund.   A  fund  has  not been set up by LLS  and we apologize for any embarrassment this may have caused Miss Rossi.  The Leukemia  & Lymphoma Society  will work with Miss Rossi     to identify a researcher who will be named in Jeff Beitzel’s memory.  The funds previously raised and any additional funds , such as those that may be forthcoming from the sale of Miss Rossi’s song  on iTunes,   will be used to help support the LLS mission.   LLS appreciates the  effort put forth by Miss Rossi.”

Gretchen Rossi OC

It seems Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi has been made aware of some rumors and comments that have made their way to the world wide web this week.

The first being that the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund, a memorial fund she created on behalf of her late fiance Jeff Beitzel, does not exist.  Gretchen had also previously said all the proceeds from her song, “Nothing Without You,” would go to Jeff’s memorial fund. However some readers had accused the OC star of making up the memorial fund, citing they could not find much information on it.  This is what Gretchen had to say about that on her Facebook page -

“I want to address a ridiculous rumor being posted. The Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund is with the Leukemia Soceity in O.C.! People can make donations 2 this fund directly by writing “For the Jeff Beitzel Memorial Fund”, Just as the proceeds from my song will be donated 2 this same fund! Someone stating that it doesn’t exist is ignorant, direspectful, and incorrect! People should stop spreading false & malicious rummors.”

Evidently Gretchen does not believe in spell check. We also reported this week that Gretchen had mysteriously taken down her make-up website citing sold out inventory, though this happened just days after certain readers pointed out that some of Gretchen’s make up products were identical to that listed on Ladyburd.com, a make-up manufacturer website.  Gretchen posted the following regarding her make-up website -

“Wow! Gretchen CHristine Beaute completely sold out of 3 months stock in just 3 weeks! Thanks to everyone for your support! We have reordered everything and are anxiously awaiting more product so we can continue to take your future orders! Thanks for the support of Gretchen Christine Beaute! www.shopgretchenchristine.com”

TELL US: DO YOU BELIEVE GRETCHEN REGARDING THE MEMORIAL FUND & MAKEUP LINE?

Slade-Gretchen

It seems where ever Gretchen Rossi goes, drama ensues.  The latest is the Real Housewives of OC star was served at a fashion show, plus her make up website is now down.

RadarOnline reported that Gretchen was served with legal papers in the middle of a fashion show.  The man behind this is Jay Photoglou, the legal papers apparently has to do with Gretchen not paying the $18,000 that was awarded to him by a Judge.

In other news, Gretchen’s make up line – Gretchen Christine Beaute seems to now be defunct. First a commenter on this site  posted that the make up she was selling on her site was identical (down to the names and colors) to that on LadyBurd.com, which happens to be a manufacturer for make-up.  Gretchen’s site had the same exact photos and names for her eyeshadow collection. She never even bothered to change the names of the shades.

This might not seem like a big deal, but it does in this case because Gretchen was shown on the TV show consulting with her makeup artist pretending to come up coming up with the colors and shades for her make up line, when in reality she was just reselling the already made products.

Days after this hit the web, Gretchen’s site started showing her products as being sold out, until she finally took down the site, posting the following -  “Gretchen Christine Beaute is in the process of adding some additional website enhancements…please be patient with us while we make these improvements.”

She also posted the following on her twitter – “Adding new enhancements to Gretchen Christine Beaute’s website this week! Lots to work on after our soft launch a month ago!”  So now, it was simply a “soft launch.”

And finally some of her customers to her facebook to complain. Apparently, the paypal payment option was in Slade Smiley’s name, meaning the make up payments were going into Slade’s paypal account. Not sure why this was a problem, but it seems some of her fans hate Slade so much, to the point that they would rather the money not go into his paypal account.

It seems Tamra Barney has had enough of attempting to take the high road when it comes to her impending divorce from husband Simon Barney.

First the Real Housewives of OC star referred to her husband of 11 years as a deadbeat dad, the latest is now Tamra referring to Simon as a “liar scum bag” in an email she sent to TheDirty website.

TheDirty referenced a RadarOnline article yesterday which showed pictures of Tamra and new boyfriend Eddie Judge on a romantic vacation. Eddie was of course referred to as being a friend of Simon’s in the article, something Tamra denies and accuses Simon of lying about, simply to make her look bad.

The email Tamra sent to TheDirty is below -

Tamra Barney Email to TheDirty

In the email, Tamra references Simon’s new friendship with Gretchen Rossi’s alleged former lover Jay Photoglou. Not exactly certain why Tamra seems repulsed by this considering she was the first one to befriend Jay last year, while he fed her some damaging information about Gretchen. All of which she shared with viewers during last year’s dramatic reunion show.

Jay then sent an email to TheDirty claiming he was with Simon when he infamously ran into Tamra and Eddie together in Las Vegas. According to Jay, Simon was crushed, and Tamra knew beforehand that Simon would be at the club.

Sighs, it’s becoming more difficult to keep up with this OC drama.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi recently went shopping and apparently decided to invite a few of her closest paparazzi pals.

Accompanying Gretchen was her boy-toy boyfriend Slade Smiley. The duo were photographed shopping at Trina Turk in West Hollywood. Photos are below.

Gretchen denied on the reunion show that neither she nor Slade ever call up the paparazzi to come and take their photos, but we’re not so sure we’re buying that.

Gretchen also continues to work on her new make up line, Gretchen Christine Beaute, and recently took some promo photos for that by photographer Daniel Ramos of Drop Zone Films. Behind the scenes photos of that are below as well.

Eddie Judge and Tamra Barney

The 5th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County is officially over, but something tells me we will continue to read and write about these women for months to come.

Tamra Barney did a live chat with Bravo last week during which she was quite candid about her new relationship with Eddie Judge, even referring to him as her “boyfriend” and jokingly calling him a “hot latin lover.”  She then added, “I would have to say….I think I’m in love!!!!”

While answering questions from fans, Tamra shared that Eddie is 37 years old, he “just looks hot and young cuz he works out all the time.” Tamra also denied that Eddie was ever a friend of her husband, Simon Barney.  “For the record….Eddie Judge was Not a friend of Simon’s like he has reported all over the press,” she claimed.

As for that ring tattoo she got last year with Simon’s name, Tamra revealed she is working on getting it removed.   “I just started laser on my tattoo….hurts bad.”

So should can we expect to see Eddie on the next season of the Real Housewives of OC?  “I gotta talk him into next season….he thinks we are all fools,” said Tamra.
