In response to the bombshell divorce papers filed by her husband yesterday, Tamra Barney is defending herself against allegations of infidelity.
Tamra’s husband, Simon Barney accused the Real Housewives of Orange County star of being unfaithful in the divorce papers he filed. Simon wrote: “Petitioner contends that Respondent has been verbally abusive and has committed acts of disloyalty and infidelity.”
Tamra has now taken to her facebook page to deny the cheating allegations. “Thanks to everyone who understands and supports me,” she wrote. “For the record, all accusations are false.”
Vicki Gunvalson, who is still in shock over the split news, is also defending her costar by telling UsWeekly, “Wonder who he thinks she cheated with?” she said in an email. “Personally, I think if Tamra spoke to a man Simon would call it cheating. Tamra has 3 little kids. That’s all I care about is making sure they get through all of this.”
A rep for Bravo revealed that Tamra, 42, “is going to share her story first on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Show hosted by Andy Cohen, airing next Thursday at midnight.”
Last night’s episode of The OC Housewives also touched on the couple’s marital issues. Tamra spoke several times about being unhappy in her marriage, while Simon believes all is well. We also had Gretchen Rossi attempt to reach out to Lynne Curtin’s daughter, Alexa, whom she thought was depressed much to Lynne and Alexa’s dismay. Something about Gretchen trying to help Alexa came off as insincere and self serving to me, but perhaps I’m wrong. Vicki also renewed her wedding vows to husband of 15 years, Don Gunvalson.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK TAMRA CHEATED? WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE? WAS GRETCHEN WRONG FOR APPROACHING ALEXIS THE WAY SHE DID?
The National Enquirer has a story out about Raquel Curtin, daughter of Lynn Curtin of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Raquel made her debut on the show last year and was infamous for her underage drinking on national television. Following in her footsteps is her younger 17 year old sister, Alexis Curtin, who asked her mother if she could have a drink on the second episode of the current season.
According to the Enquirer story, the 19 year old is even more wild and out of control. The mag obtained exclusive photos of Raquel as she boozes it up even though she’s underage, kisses a girl and poses seductively in skimpy clothing. One of the photos is below.
The most troubling part of the story are photos in the magazine that show clearly visible cuts on her wrists. “Raquel has cut her wrists with razor blades a number of times, usually after a fight with her boyfriend or when she’s depressed,” a close friend reveals.
The “friend” continues, “Even though Raquel is under age and can’t legally drink, that doesn’t stop her. She’ll drink almost anything you put in front of her, but she prefers Grey Goose vodka and champagne.”
Apparently, Raquel isn’t shy about showing off her body either. “She’s usually the first one to start taking off her clothes after a few drinks. One time she stripped down to her G-string and bar patrons drank shots off her body,” says the friend.
The friend also reveals that Raquel is depressed. “Raquel is depressed a lot of the time,” divulged the friend. “She was mortified when her family received an eviction notice on TV.”
