TheDirty referenced a RadarOnline article yesterday which showed pictures of Tamra and new boyfriend Eddie Judge on a romantic vacation. Eddie was of course referred to as being a friend of Simon’s in the article, something Tamra denies and accuses Simon of lying about, simply to make her look bad.
The email Tamra sent to TheDirty is below -
In the email, Tamra references Simon’s new friendship with Gretchen Rossi’s alleged former lover Jay Photoglou. Not exactly certain why Tamra seems repulsed by this considering she was the first one to befriend Jay last year, while he fed her some damaging information about Gretchen. All of which she shared with viewers during last year’s dramatic reunion show.
Jay then sent an email to TheDirty claiming he was with Simon when he infamously ran into Tamra and Eddie together in Las Vegas. According to Jay, Simon was crushed, and Tamra knew beforehand that Simon would be at the club.
Sighs, it’s becoming more difficult to keep up with this OC drama.

The 5th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County is officially over, but something tells me we will continue to read and write about these women for months to come.
Tamra Barney did a live chat with Bravo last week during which she was quite candid about her new relationship with Eddie Judge, even referring to him as her “boyfriend” and jokingly calling him a “hot latin lover.” She then added, “I would have to say….I think I’m in love!!!!”
While answering questions from fans, Tamra shared that Eddie is 37 years old, he “just looks hot and young cuz he works out all the time.” Tamra also denied that Eddie was ever a friend of her husband, Simon Barney. “For the record….Eddie Judge was Not a friend of Simon’s like he has reported all over the press,” she claimed.
In the preview clip below, the ladies are asked to play truth of dare, during which Gretchenis dared to kiss Tamera, and they do. The picture of that is below as well, guess hell has frozen over.
So what can we expect from the two part reunion shows? It will update us on the pending divorce of Tamra and Simon Barney. Tamra will boldly address the situation with raw honesty and emotion. Lynne will answer questions regarding the challenges she has faced with her teenage daughters throughout the season.

Tamra Barney of the Real Housewives of Orange County has somewhat tried to take the high road regarding speaking negatively of her controlling estranged husband Simon Barney, but it seems last night’s finale episode might have hit a nerve with her, as the OC star is now slamming her ex.
According to RadarOnline, Tamra referred to Simon as a deadbeat dad on her facebook page. Tamra posted Friday morning, “You never know who you married…until they turn into a deadbeat dad!”
A quick check of her facebook fanpage doesn’t show the post but Tamra does have another facebook page that is private, so one can assume she posted this there.
She did however post the following on her public facebook page, “Wow, last night episode made me realize I made the right choice. once your away from the control it’s hard to watch. what did you think?”
Also posted on her page is the a new picture of she and her new beau/Simon’s former friend — Eddie Judge. It’s safe to assume things are moving along greatly for the two.
UPDATE – In other housewives news, it seems former housewife Jeana Keough continues to be in financial trouble. The latest now is that her home is up for auction. According to Realestalker, Jeana has received multiple notices of default on her home, and the house is now scheduled to go up for auction on March 5th. It seems an home going up for auction is very similar to a foreclosure. According to the report, Jeana’s home value has gone down over $2 million. Hopefully Jeana will be able to bounce back from this.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON FINALE? SEASON IN GENERAL?
It now seems the Real Housewives of Orange County star is ready to go public with her new relationship. According to RadarOnline, Tamra herself posted the above photo of she and Eddie on her facebook page. This is all just less than 2 months after her husband Simon Barney filed for divorce, accusing her of cheating on him. Tamra has always denied she cheated.
Simon also claimed he found out about the romance by catching the two of them together at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. He said, “I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed — the ultimate betrayal by a pal and my estranged wife.”
“We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year,” said Tamra when she confirmed the new relationship to Radar.
She continued, “We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both would start dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later.”
Perhaps realizing the public backlash, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and mother of four is now changing her tune. In a new interview with the OCRegister, Tamra denies that she and Eddie are dating or are a couple. “We’re really good friends,” she said. “I think he’s a wonderful person. He’s helped me a lot through this. If something does evolve, I’d be lucky.”
According to Tamra, she went to the Las Vegas club this past weekend with Eddie and several people, including castmate Lynne Curtin. Simon had a lot to say about running into his estranged wife and his friend. In what he called the “ultimate betrayal,” Simon told RadarOnline, “I walked in and I saw Tamra with a friend of mine, Eddie Judge. I saw them holding hands and acting like a couple.” Simon continues, “As soon as Tamra saw me she let go of his hand and walked away.”
Simon then over-dramatized claimed he fell to his knees as he got weak. This was all the more shocking because Tamra also admitted to RadarOnline that she was indeed dating her husband’s friend. She said, “I started dating Eddie Judge last week. We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year.”
So why is Tamra now lying denying this to the OCRegister? Your guess is as good as ours. RadarOnline however didn’t take too kindly to Tamra denying the story she had previously admitted to them.
To prove their story, RadarOnline provided the OCRegister with texts they received from Tamra. Even more shocking, Tamra was the one that provided RadarOnline with the photo of she and Eddie Judge together (that photo is below).
Radaronline reporter, Alan Butterfield, provided the following text messages below exchanged between he and Tamra -
Butterfield: How long have you been dating him? Tamra: Since last week. We’ve been friends for a year.
Butterfield: Are you sleeping with him? Tamra: Yes, since last week.
And there you have it. Tamra admitted to dating and sleeping with Eddie, and then decided to lie about it. Not a smart move on Tamra’s part.
