Well, we alllll knew it was coming! Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi's short-lived friendship is now officially kaput! I wonder if Gretchen returned the friendship bracelet?
Tamra says the bottom really fell out at the recently filmed Real Housewives of Orange County reunion. The nail in the coffin? Weddings wars, of course! And by wedding wars, I mean spinoff competitions.
"We were friends until we shot the reunion show," Tamraconfessed to TVGuide. "It stirred up a lot. They talked about the past and Andy [Cohen] went deep, so it brought back a bunch of nonsense that didn't need to be brought up."
Oh thank goodness Gretchen Rossi is making money off the uber romantical and so super special and intimate proposal song she (and a team of Bravo hired producers) wrote for Slade Smiley.
That's soooooooooo special, y'all. Like the most beyond special-ist thing ever! So yeah, if you want to own your own little piece of television's most loving moment like ever you can buy it on iTunes.
The audio for this stunning love ballad is below. And you can be assured that autotune has been heavily deployed, even though like Gretchen doesn't need it because Real Housewives of Orange County producers intentionally made her sound worse on the show, just like because they're mean and like hate her and stuff! Not at all because she can't actually sing…
We're finally getting even more details of Tamra Barney'sover-the-top wedding to Eddie Judge straight from the reality star's mouth. The nuptials, which will be featured in a three-part Bravo spin-off beginning September 2, had the bride wearing three different dresses and incorporated all four of her children. The Real Housewives of Orange County's resident loudmouth even had all of her co-stars on hand to celebrate with her.
Tamra tells Us Weekly, "Words can't even describe the weekend. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It went by so fast!"
Describing her walk down the aisle with eldest son Ryan to get to her groom, she says, "Oh gosh … [Eddie's] so handsome and then he was in that tux. In the three and a half years I've known Eddie, I've never seen him cry. It was really wrenching to see him standing there with tears in his eyes. I thought, 'Oh my God, this guy really does love me!'"
Tamra's wedding ceremony included harpists and a painter. At the altar, the couple kept things interesting with some sort of DIY project consisting of Eddie's bike hanging upside down from the rafters, with chandeliers, balls of flowers and strings of beads dangling from it.
We've got a sneak peek of Tamra Barney's wedding and her dress! As we were working on a post about Tamra's wedding and her co-stars' sharing photos leading up to the ceremony, a Reality Tea reader sent us photos of the big event happening! Our reader happened to be at Tamra and Eddie Judge's wedding venue this evening (the St. Regis Monarch Beach) and snapped a few pics of the excitement – and the Bravo cameras getting it all on film for her spinoff special.
The first photo shows the ceremony as it's going on. Unfortunately, we can't get it zoomed in enough to see if Vicki Gunvalson is really a bridesmaid. I want to say that the first woman in the attendant line is Vicki, but I can't say for sure. The ceremony looks gorgeous, I'll give them that!
Our reader also snapped Tamra and Eddie coming down the aisle toward the cameramen.
Both Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow have confirmed their invitations, and now Alexis Bellino is doing the same. Hey, it's not a Bravo wedding without drama. Despite rumors to the contrary, Alexis will watch Tamra walk down the aisle. Third time's the charm!
Of course, it works out well…now Alexis will have some screen time on Tamra's OC Wedding spin-off!
Tamra Barney's wedding spinoff is getting both a name and a premiere date. Lucky us!
It's clear whomever usually comes up with the titles for these shows was on vacation (or hates Tamra too) because according to the Bravo press release the "limited run, three-part series" will be called "Tamra's OC Wedding". How creative!
Premiering on Sept 2nd Tamra and Eddie Judge will get three episodes to show off their love before being relegated back to the loser ensemble cast category. That is strangely reassuring because it means Bravo definitely has no plans to do a full-time Tamra show!
Well thankfully, some folks who are well-connected to the Bravo franchise aren't the best at keeping a secret, and now we know that Tamra and Eddie's wedding festivities will be happening sooner rather than later!
