The Real Housewives of Orange County’s self-proclaimed “hottest Housewife,” Tamra Barney, has gone from being happily married to newly single, as her husband of 11 years – Simon Barney recently filed for divorce, citing infidelity and verbal abuse.

“I’ve never cheated on him, so I don’t exactly know what he means by that,” said Tamra, 42, in a new interview with iVillage. “And then verbal abuse. I’m so verbally abusing him in my head right now.”

Despite her marital drama and very public divorce, Tamra continues to stay positive. “I’m sure I’m going to go through many ups and downs with emotions, but right now I feel good,” she says. And what about dating in her near future? “There will be a time that I date, but right now I’m just focusing on my kids and trying to get settled in my new apartment and just waiting to see what happens next,” she says.

When asked about her on-and-off arch nemesis and costar, Gretchen Rossi, Tamra had the following to say, “I think so much has been said between the two of us that I don’t think we’ll ever be best friends, but we can be cordial to each other in social environments,” says Tamra, joking, “You know I don’t call her up and ask her, ‘Hey how you doing? You and Slade want to come over?'”

In another interview with UsWeekly, Tamra reveals she has some regrets when it comes to her family and how she handled things. Mostly over some of the things she said on the show. Tamra says, “When it comes to the family . . . [there are] maybe some thing I shouldn’t have said.”

ALEXIS-BELLINO-JIM-BELLINO

First came the sordid details of Alexis Bellino’s first marriage and divorce, now more details are starting to come out about the Real Housewives of Orange County star and her husband Jim Bellino.

Interestingly enough, tonight’s episode of the hit show will focus more on the couple’s creepy relationship. I came across the following story from the site – AbsurdtoSublime which details the extent the Bellinos went to in order to appear on the show and become famous. This allegedly came from a reliable source -

“Alexis and Jim did everything they could to get on this show. They bought a house from Jeana and befriended her. They bought a car from Simon and befriended him. Alexis joined Gretchen’s gym and befriended her. They watched the show every week since it’s been aired and tried to get as many connections as possible. I do have to say, it worked. Though it was expensive! Fancy houses and luxury cars aren’t cheap. Hope they feel it is worth it.”

Very interesting. There’s another story out about Jim Bellino’s past and businesses endeavors. The show simply lists Jim as being a business man with little mention of the exact type of businesses he operates. There have been numerous reports that Jim owns a pawn shop.

According to GossipList, Jim was indicted in 2000 by the Feds for counterfeit autographed sports memorabilia. A source posted the following -

“A James Carlos Bellino, who owned a business called Forensic Document Services, located at 1115 N. Tustin Ave., Orange, CA, was indicted by the Feds in 2000 (3:00-cr-03071-JM: USA v. Bellino) for conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

The accusations involved sales to federal agents of forged sports memorabilia, specifically, baseballs with forged Babe Ruth signatures. The government subsequently deferred prosecution. a short hand way of letting Bellino off without jail time if he paid restitution of almost $30,000, went on probation for a year, and got out of the sports memorabilia business.”

As the Real Housewives of Orange County continue to deal with their off season issues such as divorce and eviction notices, Gretchen Rossi is now speaking out to OK magazine! about fellow housewife Tamra Barney’s split from her husband Simon Barney.

Gretchen does not hold back as she tells the mag she suspects the Barneys impending divorce might be solely for publicity. “…I guess well have to see if it’s really true,” Gretchen tells OK! of Tamra’s divorce, “because I wouldn’t be surprised if we see them next year back together and this was a whole publicity stunt.”

Gretchen, however goes on to wish her co-star well, you know just in case the divorce is really real and stuff. “I think divorce is a horrible thing for anybody and I pray that her kids can make it through, but at the same time… But if it is real I hope that they can get through it, but I just hope they are not trying to fool the world,” Gretchen adds.

Gretchen, 32, has decided its better too keep her distance from the rest of the housewives with the exception of Alexis.

“I chose to keep positive people in my life that are uplifting and those girls, except Alexis, aren’t like that and I really don’t have an ill word to speak about them. They are who they are and their true colors show and I just don’t care to really talk one way or the other about them,” says Gretchen.

Critisism about her relationship with boyfriend Slade Smiley and his parenting skills, is something Gretchen does not understand.

“It’s been really frustrating lately because people have so many negative things to say about him and it’s hard for me because he is one of the most amazing men I have ever met,” Gretchen gushes to OK!, “And it bothers me that the women have a comment about his children or how he is as a father when they have never even seen him around his children and they don’t know anything about the situation. It’s very ignorant…”

When her new music career is not keeping her busy, Gretchen spends her free time working on her new beauty line – Gretchen Christine Beaute, and she also reveals her hopes of being a mom someday saying, “I want to have kids of my own!”

millionaire-matchmaker-patti-stanger

She’s baaack! The 3rd season of Bravo’s hit show – The Millionaire Matchmaker is set to premier tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Returning this season is the matchmaker herself Patti Stanger, along with Vice President of Matching, Chelsea Autumn and her Chief Operating Officer, Destin Pfaff. Also back is Destin’s fiancée, Rachel, as the first time parents head into season three.

This season will focus on Patti’s matchmaking of course but it will also showcase Patti’s recent engagement, as well as the return of some of Patti’s most memorable clients such as Shauna Raisch from season 2. Patti will also take on more gay clients this season.

More about the show’s 3rd season is below -

Bravo and Patti Stanger are back together and going strong for a third season of the hit docu-series The Millionaire Matchmaker, premiering Tuesday, January 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Stanger will stop at nothing to build her matchmaking empire – her business is flourishing, she has a successful book under her belt and is now hosting her own radio advice show. But after years of helping others find love, Stanger herself finally seals the deal. She and her longtime love, Andy Friedman, are engaged at last.

In the third season, Stanger once again takes on a selection of millionairesses and gay clients. Plus, millionaires past will come back to haunt Stanger, notably Shauna Raisch who caused a stir last season due to a very tense and uncomfortable exchange with the matchmaker. But Stanger remains unfazed by it all, whipping her millionaires into shape even with a full plate of her own as she makes plans for her upcoming nuptials.

Next to Big Brother, Millionaire Matchmaker is probably my 2nd favorite reality show. I love Patti’s honesty and abrasiveness. The clueless millionaires and sometimes desperate gold diggers women on the show makes it all the more entertaining.

Lynne Curtin of the Real Housewives of Orange County has avoided a 3rd eviction.

According to the OC Register, the housewife and her husband Frank Curtin have paid the overdue rent on their Aliso Viejo, CA home, thus avoiding another eviction on their $2595 a month rental home (the same one they can be seen living in on the show).

“They paid last month and they staved off the wolf,” said Steven Silverstein, attorney for the homeowner. “My client got her money so we stopped the eviction.”

Is Bethenny Frankel the new Star Jones? According to the NYDailyNews, the Real Housewives of NYC star is gearing up to have a huge wedding with one little catch, she doesn’t want to pay a dime!

Bethenny, who has received her own Bravo spinoff show titled “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” a well-placed source says of Bethenny’s upcoming nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy.

“She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy about the fact that the cameras will be rolling during the event.” The source reveals that Bethenny has attempted to get everything, from her dress to the venue to a planner, for absolutely free.

It however seems Bethenny isn’t having much luck unlike the former “View” host Star Jones, who notoriously got vendors to fund her lavish wedding back in 2004. The vendors aren’t as eager to give Bethenny free items for product placement on her upcoming show as the show has yet to air. “The feedback has been that it’s just too much to ask for when there’s no payment involved – especially when one episode of a show hasn’t even aired yet,” says the insider.

The source insists Bethenny is refusing to take no for an answer and will keep trying to get free vendors. Another drama brewing is which of her housewives costars will be attending her wedding. Though Bethenny has invited Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and even Kelly Bensimon. There are rumors Jill might not attend as the two have drifted apart in the recent months.

One person who will be in attendance is Ramona as the tells the mag, “I’m definitely going to the wedding. Bethenny said, ‘I want you there,’ and I told her, ‘I support you in everything you do.”

Bethenny is however denying she was shopping around for sponsors. “If I had the time to find sponsors for my wedding I deserve 2 free weddings and a trip to Fiji” she insists.

tamra-barney

The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Barney appeared on  Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Thursday night , during which she denied cheating on her husband Simon Barney.

Host Andy Cohen read out loud a facebook message he received from Simon just hours before the show went on live. Simon’s controlling message to Andy is below -

“Please be kind to my wife tonight, she’s very fragile and easily rattled. Keep in mind that she will have to live and see whatever you air tonight for the rest of her life. Tamra’s a wonderful person with a good heart, I don’t want to see her hurt anymore. So for the sake of her and our children, be kind to her.”

Tamra’s reply was “Wow.”  According to Tamra, she believes Simon was very nervous about what she might say on the show. Just moments after she denied being unfaithful, Simon sent Andy another message telling him to ask Tamra about the 200 phone calls she made to her ex-boyfriend.

Tamra admitted making calls to her ex boyfriend, but said he was just a friend.  Tamra — who said she had been quiet to avoid making the separation “a public issue” or media “circus” — said she believed Simon accused her of cheating because he knew with her celebrity status, the story would spread like wildfire.

Towards the end of the show, Tamra also revealed Simon threatened her that their three children, ages 11, 9 and 4, would be watching.

As for what led to the divorce, Tamra said that after a New Year’s Eve fight between she and Simon, she decided to leave the couple’s home on a “trial separation” basis. She said she “had to leave,” as she couldn’t continue living in 2010 the way she did in 2009.

Tamra and Simon have been married for 11 years.

In my opinion, Simon just made himself look worse by his behavior on the show (the facebook message to Andy and texting Andy during the show to bring up Tamra’s ex).  Tamra surprisingly did appear to take the high road when it came to him. I’m sure there are lots of negative things she could have said about Simon if she really wanted to.  Last night’s show just confirmed that he is indeed a very controlling man.
