Tamra Barney of 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' appears at Azure at the Palazzo

Real Housewives of Orange County stars Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge celebrated their joint bachelor and bachelorette party in Las Vegas this weekend.  Tamra, Eddie and co-star Heather Dubrow hit the pool at Azure together, showing off their swimsuit bodies before heading in for the party (which is reportedly being filmed for show, naturally).

Tamra kept her bikini covered up with a sheer metallic number, while Heather opted for a long black beach dress. 



It is officially wedding season on Bravo! Sooooo excited. #sarcasm

Kicking things off are Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge who are headed to Las Vegas this weekend for a joint Bachelor-Bachelorette party weekend. I hope Eddie left his bike at home… 

The Real Housewives of Orange County star already had a 'faux' Bachelorette party last year which was basically a meet-n-greet for fans. “That was just an appearance,’” a source tells Wetpaint of Tamra's previous party, “but this weekend is the official one.” Eddie and Tamra's wedding is about a month away. 

Tamra and the cast of RHOC also filmed a girls trip/bachelorette weekend for this season's show.

Tamra Barney recently filmed a segment with San Diego 6 where she talked about CUT Fitness and of course Real Housewives of Orange County. 

Tamra admits her recent gym "opening" which was featured on the show "didn't go as planned," but of course that's not her fault! "I had an unexpected guest and I wasn't speaking to her at the time. And she's threatening me and I thought it was very odd that she wanted to come to my party."

In light of a certain argument with a certain blonde who is often accused of being fake (ahem… Alexis Bellino!), Tamra says:"Being signed up for a reality show, there's the word 'real' in there."

Tamra Barney has never been one to hold her tongue, and she's not going to win any awards for couth.  I certainly don't see her leading any sensitivity training seminars any time soon either!  The Real Housewives of Orange County star's mouth is always getting her in trouble, and most of the time she couldn't care less.

Now, however, Tamra is speaking out about a little incident on a recent episode where she was bleeped by the network…for something she never wanted to air in the first place!  Oh gracious, Tamra.  What now?

Say it ain't so Vicki Gunvalson! Apparently it is. 

Yes, Vicki and Brooks Ayers are an item again. Oh my. "We are together," Vicki tells Us Weekly. Vicki insists he is a "really great guy" who treats her "like a princess." 

"Brooks and I have had, definitely, a rough road," The Real Housewives of Orange County star confesses. "We fight to stay together; we fight to leave each other alone. Every other day I'm like, 'I'm too much work for you.'"

Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge have been shackin' up in preparation for their upcoming televised wedding. On Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra has been showing off the growing pains in their relationship – including Eddie's difficult adjustment to living with 3 kids, a dog, and all the accompanying mess. Oh, he's also trapped with Tamra <shudder>!

Things have apparently worked out and Tamra recently showed off their redecorated home, which she turned from a "man cave" to a family space. A video of the tour is below!

Moving on, Alexis Bellino has definitely had some rough times on reality television. Viewers were surprised when she returned this season after initially quitting (getting fired?) due to contract issues. However she is ba-ack!

Describing this season as "Alexis with all the dead ends cut off!” in a new interview with All Things Real Housewives, Jesus Barbie dishes on where things stand with her co-stars and why she's a whole new girl this round! 



Bravo seems to have a serious addiction to weddings. I think they need rehab. In today's Weddings By Bravo news Tamra Barney talks wedding plans, a potential spinoff, and dress designs.

Meanwhile Millionaire Matchmaker quack star Patti Sanger confirms that Gretchen Rossi did indeed propose to Slave Smiley. I'm sure it was captured on camera, cause you know as Andy Cohen said in a recent interview weddings are a natural way to spawn a spinoff when you have nothing else going on in your reality TV life.

In short, it's looking like we may be forced to sit through two Real Housewives of Orange County wedding spectaculars. Unless they go the soap opera route and do a double wedding, which for my sanity I hope is the case. 

Anyway, let's break this mess down. 


The Real Housewives of Orange County - Season 8

Tamra Barney is spending the day in D.C. today.  The Real Housewives of Orange County star thought she was being funny when she shared the following story on her Facebook page, but she stirred up a large number of her fans, rubbing them the wrong way. 

"Eddie encouraging me to go to the White House and speak my mind…… 'Take care of business baby, Tell them how unfair it is that when you work harder and earn more money they take more money. While the lazy people get paid to stay home and jerk off'".  Then she wrote, "Hmmm, Not sure that will go over too well? But I might make the press?"

Tamra quickly shared several photos of her day in what might have been an attempt to bury the faux pas and change the subject.  Note to Real Housewives and other reality stars everywhere: don't get political, it always backfires!
