You know you've made it big in the reality television world when we're still talking about you long after you got the boot from your Bravo gig…or in one lady's case when her whole city's series got the ax.
Tamra Barney is another Real Housewife who has made her dream a reality. Tamra shared way back that she planned to open a gym – C.U.T. Fitness OC – and I'm not so sure we all believed it was going to happen. You know how those Housewives love to dream up future projects that never come to fruition. I'm still waiting for NeNe Leakes' Miss Moscato to hit the shelves.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star is showing off the progress of her new fitness club, still called C.U.T. Fitness OC, and it's nearly ready to open! We'll most likely see the grand opening on an episode of RHOC since they're currently filming and the Bravo cameras were there for the public preview. It looks like her plan is to be open on January 3rd.
Take a look at the gallery below to see how far along Tamra's gym is coming!

"We're talking right now. We're filming season eight of the Housewives and it's something [Bravo]'s interested in," Tamradishes to Life & Style. "We haven't said yes or no yet, but we're definitely thinking about it." Yeah right… she's totally begging Bravo!
Tamra recently went wedding dress shopping and the segment was filmed for RHOC. They also filmed her bachelorette party weekend which included the entire cast save for Alexis Bellino.
A new bikini line isn't the only project that Real Housewives of Orange County'sGretchen Rossi is working on. The reality TV star reveals in a new interview that she and Slade Smiley are working on having a baby together.
Gretchen tells Ok magazine, "We’re working really hard right now to have a baby. He actually has a vasectomy so he has to get a reversal and we have to kind of figure that all out. The scoop is we are taking the steps to try to have a baby."
Although she turned Slade'smarriage proposal down a few months back, Gretchen tells the mag that she might be ready now. "If that is the path we are taking there should be some sort of commitment and I don’t know when that is going to happen and who is going to ask who. I might not [ask him to marry me], but I’m just saying you never know. I kind of have a wild hair up my ass. I’m just saying a guy doesn’t always have to do it. He can still do it, but maybe I might too. I don’t know, but if [he] doesn't something soon, I might have to!"
I can now say with certainty that Real Housewives of Orange County'sVicki Gunvalson's love tank is no longer being filled by Brooks Ayers. What? No more daily affirmations? No more crawfish boils? No more rented furs? I wonder what happened there…I'm guessing that she got tired of spending all her money on him. Vicki recently chatted about all things Season 8, grandson Troy, and bacon vodka. What is the housewives' obsession with having their own liquor line?
Also in RHOC news, Tamra Barney is shopping for her wedding duds and bringing along the majority of her co-stars…whether she's friends with them or thinks they are fake air heads. That's right. Vicki, Heather Dubrow, Gretchen Rossi, former cast member Lauri Waring Peterson, new housewife Lydia Stirling McLaughlin, and dun dun dun dun…Alexis Bellino (what?) all accompanied Tammy on her trek to find the perfect gown. I'm sure that was fun!
Now there is speculation that said mystery brunette could be a new cast member. Her name is Lydia Stirling McLaughlin, and she's a thirty-one-year-old heiress, business woman, and mother of two with ties to both Heather Dubrow and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Lisa Vanderpump.
