Real Housewives of Orange County

More details are being revealed about the Saturday night showdown between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough, and it seems Jeana wasn’t exactly an innocent victim in the incident.

In fact according to RadarOnline and E! News, Jeana was the one who provoked the physical altercation with Tamra by trying to push her into a pool unsuccessfully.

RadarOnline reports that Tamra was furious with certain comments Jeana had been making about her in the press, comments which she felt were inaccurate, so she tried to hand Jeana a cease and desist letter from her lawyer at a wrap party for the Bravo show. The party took place at castmate’s Vicki Gunvalson’s house according to E! News.

That didn’t go so well according to Radar. “Jeana said to Tamra, ‘Youre’ a b—- and I’m gonna throw you’re a– in the pool,’” a witness tells Radar. “Then she pushed Tamra, as if she was trying to throw her in the pool.”

This then led to Tamra throwing a glass of wine in Jeana’s face, and as Tamra walked away, Jeana attempted to throw her wine at Tamra, but the drink ended up missing her, instead soaking another woman’s white dress. That woman reportedly grabbed Jeana and pushed her up against a wall.

It wasn’t over yet folks as Tamra then encountered Jeana and a male friend in the driveway as she tried to leave the party. Jeana’s friend then took a wine glass and threw it at Tamra’s feet, with glass shattering and flying everywhere.

Bravo’s cameras were reportedly on hand to film the event.

In other news, the AbsurdToSublime site is reporting that Gretchen Rossi is now engaged. According to the site, her boyfriend of a year and a half, Slade Smiley, proposed to her Saturday night during the filming of the Season 6 Real Housewives of Orange County Finale.

If true, no official announcement yet from either party, though Gretchen did post a photo of she and Slade with their parents over the weekend. We’re guessing the announcement will likely come from a major media outlet like Bethenny Frankel did with PEOPLE magazine when she got engaged. The site also reports that Slade recently had his vasectomy reversed.

More drama in the OC. Late Saturday night, Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney threw a drink if the face of her former cast mate Jeana Keough, just days after Jeana gave a shocking interview to RadarOnline, during which she took several shots at Tamra.

Below is what Jeana’s daughter, Kara Keough, posted on her twitter page Saturday night -

@TamraBarney to hear you threw a drink in @jeanakeough’s face makes me sick- she called me in tears- can’t believe I considered you a friend

Thanks for the support, everyone. I may be biased for my own mommy, but I’m on #TeamJeana all the way. Assault is never the answer.

As to what might have gotten Tamra so peeved, it all has to do with the comments Jeana made in her interview to Radar. Jeana stated she has been going on double dates with Tamra’s estranged husband Simon Barney and his new girlfriend. The interview then took a quick turn for the worse as Jeana, who might or might not be a professional enabler, declared that Simon has never hit Tamra, and stated that if there was any domestic violence in the relationship, Tamra was likely the offending party because she liked to playfully “whack” people.

Jeana also referred to Tamra as a “very dramatic” person and insinuated she made up the domestic voilence claims against Simon to get custody of their kids. Here’s what Tamra posted on her twitter page last night -

“Think twice jeana keough when you try to throw me in a pool cuz you talk smack. MIND YOUR OWN BUISNESS!”

Oddly enough, most of Jeana’s comments about Tamra have been removed from the RadarOnline article, though you can still see most of the comments here on our site. According to Realitywives.net, Tamra made the following posts on her facebook before deleting them -

“JEANA KEOUGH THINKS SHE KNOWS SO MUCH ABOUT MY LIFE? POOR POOR SICK WOMAN….LEAVE ME ALONE FOR THE LAST TIME! THEN SHE TRIES TO THROW ME IN A POOL CUZ I SERVED HER WITH A C&D LETTER FROM MY ATTORNEY….

STAY TUNED I HAVE THE TEXT AND EMAILS THAT JEANA SENT ME AFTER I CONFRONTED HER ABOUT HER INTERVIEW!”

Here’s what some other OC current/former cast members had to say about the incident -

Shane Keough: @Tamrabarney you are low class trash. How dare you threaten my mother when you are wrong to begin with.If you want privacy then leave OC.

Gretchen Rossi: @karakeough is your mom ok? I texted her but didn’t hear back… @karakeough was hoping to see u today! Glad mom is ok! Xoxo

Quinn Fry: OMG!!!!!!! You will never believe what happened today while were filming! Wine tossed, Tamra pissed me off!

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? WHO’S SIDE ARE YOU ON?

In a shocking new interview, former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough had some rather interesting things to say regarding her former castmate Tamra Barney.

In the interview with RadarOnline, Jeana, who quit the Bravo show midway through last season, shares that she goes on double dates with Tamra’s estranged husband Simon Barney, whom she has built a special friendship with.

“I see Simon. We’ve had dinner like once a week for the last two weeks,” Jeana told Radar adding that she ran into Simon shortly after his release for domestic violence against Tamra (all charges have since been dropped).

Jeana however makes it clear their dinners are double dates. “[He's] with this new girl, he’s dating. He’s very happy, very happy,” she said. “She’s a banker, in her 30s, she’s intelligent and cute and doesn’t wear any makeup and dresses low key. She’s a business girl.” Photos of Simon’s new girlfriend are below by the way.

The interview only got better or worse, depending on who you ask, as Jeana then decided to comment on Tamra’s accusations that Simon has been physically abusive to her for years. Jeana makes it very clear that she is solely on Team Simon and does not believe Tamra’s accusations.

“No, not [for] a second. I’ve only seen her whack him. I’ve never ever seen him do anything but try to protect her and say ‘you’ve had enough to drink’ or ‘your dress is a little short.’ But no. He’s a great guy.”

Jeana went on to describe Tamra as “very dramatic” before insinuating that Tamra is taking advantage of the system by making up the domestic violence claims in order to get sole custody of her kids with Simon.

“Her point was she was trying to prove to women that you don’t have to take abuse and while we all work for that — and I work for several organizations that do the same — it’s also abuse of the system,” said Jeana. “It’s a classic form of child custody battles to get more money, it’s to act like there’s something wrong and then they end up paying more money to settle with you and you get more time, it’s not worth it.”

Jeana added, “You know that girl, you’ve seen her on TV. You know her mouth. If that guy [Simon] would have ever hit her or touched her, if he looked crossed-eyed at her she was screaming at him at the top of her lungs. I’ve had her turn on me like a rattlesnake for nothing. So there is no way she would take abuse from anyone. She stands up for herself even when she’s not correct…”

Whoa at Jeana’s comments. Would like to hear your thoughts on what she said. And finally Simon posted photos of his younger stunning new girlfriend on Facebook recently. While some of his facebook friends wondered if she was the babysitter or his daughter, Simon made it clear that is not the case. “Not the Babysitter, not my kid. She is old enough to be their mother. But doesn’t look like it. She is my beautiful Girlfriend,” he posted. Pictures of her below -

A day after news broke of her divorce filing, Vicki Gunvalson of the Real Housewives of Orange County is speaking out about her decision to walk away from her marriage.

Speaking exclusively to UsWeekly magazine, Vicki, 48, sheds a little light on why she filed for divorce from Donn Gunvalson, her husband of 16 years.

“We tried,” said Vicki. “It’s just too hard on both of us.” She added: “It is amicable and we want to keep this as private as possible.”

Vicki also posted the following on her facebook page – “Donn has been an important part of my life and he will continue to be,” she wrote. “I would like to thank all of you for the outpouring of love and support that we have received.”

Also speaking out on Vicki’s divorce filing are her co-stars and her son. Tamra, Alexis and Michael had the following to say to RadarOnline -

Alexis Bellino – “This is totally unexpected, I really didn’t see it coming,” Alexis told Radar.“I’ve spent a great deal of time with them and they seemed very content with one another.” Alexis added – “Reality TV is hard on any marriage, and I will be praying for their family during this trying time.”

Tamra Barney – “I can’t speak for Vicki, but I spent some time with her in the past week or so and she’s a little stressed out and…clearly upset. But only she knows what’s best for her… It’s a difficult decision. I’m just beside myself because I love Donn and I love Vicki,” Tamra said. “My heart breaks for both of them and I truly wish them the best. I only wish they get through this without it being a giant circus. And only they know what’s going on.”

Michael Wolfsmith – “I think it’s for the best and they don’t really enjoy spending time with each other anymore and my mom’s always gone and traveling and Donn deserves someone who’s going to be at home and she deserves someone that’s going to support what she does,” said Michael. “My mom’s always gone… He’s home alone a lot, he’s just not happy and she’s not happy so whatever my mom wants to do I support.”

As we reported yesterday, the 6th season of the OC Housewives is currently filming so this divorce news will likely be on the show.

It seems Vicki Gunvalson‘s love tank is completely depleted.

TMZ is reporting today that the Real Housewives of OC star filed for divorce from husband of 16 years, Donn Gunvalson, on Monday.

According to the divorce documents, Vicki, 48, married Donn in 1994. The two have no children together while Vicki’s has two children from a previous marriage — Michael, 23, and Briana, 22.

This news doesn’t come as the biggest surprise as the Gunvalsons have been shown experiencing marital problems on the Bravo hit show, though they attempted to make things work by renewing their vows back in July of 2009.

Vicki was also photographed kissing a college student earlier this year, something she described as just fun and not cheating. Vicki’s co-star and BFF on the show, Tamra Barney, also left her husband Simon Barney back in January.

UPDATE – The 6th season of the Real Housewives of OC is currently filming so this will likely be on the show.

UPDATE #2 – Castmate Alexis Bellino spoke to RadarOnline stating she is surprised by the divorce news. “This is totally unexpected, I really didn’t see it coming,” Alexis told Radar.“I’ve spent a great deal of time with them and they seemed very content with one another.” Alexis added – “Reality TV is hard on any marriage, and I will be praying for their family during this trying time.”

Could a Real Housewives of Orange County star be gearing up for a mid season exit? Perhaps. According to RadarOnline, Fernanda Rocha has now joined the Bravo housewives series!

This news comes as a surprise because the 6th season of the Bravo hit show has been filming for weeks now and the addition of another new housewife Peggy Tanous, was announced close to 2 months ago. This is a likely indicator that Fernanda will be replacing a veteran housewife midway through the season.

As for Fernanda, RadarOnline describes her as a drop dead gorgeous personal trainer with a killer body, who is bisexual and open about it.

“She’s going to be a more controversial character because she’s been married and she’s just got out of a lesbian relationship,” a source said.

Fernanda, who is a good friend of Tamra Barney’s and recently posed in some topless NO8H photos with her, is a co-owner of the fitness club, Art of Fitness & SPA in Laguna Beach, CA. She appeared on the show last season teaching her fitness class to some of the housewives.

A show insider tells RadarOnline that “they’re probably going to use her as more of a villain-type character that will stir the pot like Kim G. But she’s younger, sexier and more controversial.” More photos of Fernanda below -

In new court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney makes some shocking allegations against her estranged husband Simon Barney.

According to RadarOnline, in the court documents which Tamra used to obtain a temporary restraining order against Simon, she alleges she suffered longtime physical and verbal abuse in his hands.

The court documents, issued in an Orange County courtroom September 23, allege that Simon physically assaulted her repeatedly during their 11-year marriage, as “his angry outbursts occurred, and continue to occur in the presence of our children.”

It doesn’t end there as Tamra states she did not break her silence on the alleged abuse until now because she “wrongfully believed that maybe these violent acts could be rationalized, and also due to embarrassment [she] did not report these instances of physical abuse in the past.”

In the docs, Tamra also alleges that last August, Simon told their 4-year-old daughter he wanted to change his cell phone ring tone to the sound of howling dogs for any calls he would receive from her mother.

As reported over the weekend, the Orange County DA’s office has decided to drop the domestic violence charges against Simon due to lack of sufficient evidence.  You can read what Simon had to say following that news here.

I don’t like to add my opinion on these types of stories, and from reading the previous comments, it seems a lot of people are split when it comes to who they believe.  I’ve made it clear over the years that Tamra is one of my least favorite housewives but I must say I’m more inclined to believe her side in this.  Why? Well, mainly based on Simon’s behavior on the last season of the OC Housewives. His very controlling behavior just seems to fall in line with that of abusers, but who knows?

TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED/SHOCKED BY TAMRA’S CLAIMS?

The OC Register is reporting today that the Orange County District Attorney’s Office has decided to drop the domestic violence charges against Simon Barney due to a lack of sufficient evidence.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star and estranged husband of Tamra Barney was arrested early Tuesday morning on domestic violence charges.  Tamra called the cops on Simon after alleging he threw a plastic dog leash at her during an argument.

According to the OC Register, the case was submitted to the O.C. District Attorney’s Office on Friday morning. It was reviewed and the DA’s office ultimately declined to file charges.

“It just shows that justice is blind, but it’s not stupid,” said Simon to the Register on Friday. “It’s not gullible, and it’s not persuaded by fame.”

Simon issued a statement on Wednesday denying the allegations, claiming Tamra made up the story in an attempt to get sole custody of their three children together.  Simon alleged Tamra’s motivation was the fact that he refused to allow Bravo cameras to film their kids.

Simon also told the OC Register on Friday that Tamra’s allegations were motivated by jealousy.  “Tammy ran into my new girlfriend,” he said, adding that he’s been dating her for about two months.

As we reported yesterday, Tamra was granted a temporary restraining order against Simon, banning him from getting within 100 feet of her and limiting the time he can spend their kids.  As part of the restraining order, Simon was forced to hand in his firearm to law enforcement authorities.

Tamra is however denying Simon’s accusations via a text message to the Register.  The “network has never put pressure on Simon to have the kids on the show … Ever! And Bravo is not happy he is saying that! They simply asked if the kids could be on the main title shoot last week and he said ‘NO’ and they said ‘thank you’.”

She continued, “I did not want the kids on the show this year unless it was a situation where me, Simon and the kids were doing something together as a family. Just cuz your [sic] divorcing doesn’t mean you we do not attend our childrens activities together… It breaks my heart that he has acted that way in front of the children and I hope he gets the help he needs to control his anger. I never wanted him arrested. The cops made that decision for me.”

Simon adds that Tamra is lying.  “I don’t want to be part of the show, part of the media; I want to go on with my life,” he said. “I don’t want any part of fame. It’s destructive. It’s a drug. I’m still the same person I was five years ago.”
