Simon Barney


It seems things are getting pretty serious for Tamra Barney and boyfriend Eddie Judge.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Orange County star reveals she and Eddie, beau of over a year, are not only planning to marry soon, but have also discussed adopting a child together.

“We’ve talked about marriage and we want to get married,” gushed 42-year-old Free Bitch Tamra.“It’s an insane amount of love; I have never said term ‘soul mate’ before, but we are!” As for what Tamra loves about Eddie, 37, she reveals it’s the fact that he does not judge her. “I’m not the easiest person in the world and he gets me, nor does he judge. He simply says, ‘that’s my girl.’”

Tamra once again makes it clear that Eddie and her ex-husband Simon Barney, who filed for divorce in January of 2010 after 11 years of marriage, were never friends like he had claimed.

“He put that out there when Eddie and I started dating,” said Tamra of Simon, who also has a new girlfriend.“We had gone to holiday parties about two years ago where Simon and Eddie briefly met, but they never had a friendship and no numbers were exchanged.” Tamra states Simon and Eddie have only met about 3 time socially, adding “Simon has even admitted to me that he was sorry and at the time he was pissed off.”

Tamra goes on to reveal that she has slowly started to bring Eddie into the lives of her children – Ryan, Sidney, Spencer and Sophia. “Within the next year we’ll be married,” Tamra told Radar, adding that it’s all about timing and her kids. “If it weren’t for the kids, we’d be married right now… but we’re happy as can be; it’s happily ever after!”

Having more kids isn’t out of the picture either as Tamra says “Eddie is adopted and said he’d even like to adopt.” More pictures of Tamra and Eddie below.

In other Tamra news, following some backlash for her bathtub scene on the latest episode (she was naked in a bathtub and later joined by Eddie), she is now admitting she made a mistake and expressing regret over her actions. Excerpts from her Bravo blog below -

On The Bathtub Scene – “The one thing about me is I will always own my mistakes, which leads me to the bathtub scene. I knew the next day after filming it that I made a big mistake. It was me getting caught up int he moment, drinking wine, and forgetting the cameras were there. I have been dreading this episode for eight months. As a mother, this was not one of my smartest moments on TV. Even thought I do not allow my children to watch the show, it doesn’t mean their friends don’t. This was one of those moments that I had to sit my kids down and tell them that mommy made a mistake and did something on TV that was in bad taste. I have a great communication line with my kids and have taught them that everyone makes mistakes, and as long as you own up to your mistakes, you will learn from them.”

On Eddie Downing A Glass Of Wine Before Entering The Bathtub - “You finally got to see Eddie in more ways than your probably wanted too. He didn’t say much and was extremely nervous in front of the camera. The first night we filmed I looked over at him and he started to turn white and said, “I cant do this.” So that was the reason for the shot of tequila, it calmed his nerves. The bathtub scene was about five shots of tequila for him, and when he walked in the bathroom he was caught totally off guard. He looked at me and said, “You’re naked,” while there were about five people with cameras and audio looking on. It was uncomfortable for him, but he jumped right in.”

Weeks after originally filing bankruptcy, RadarOnline is now reporting that Simon Barney’s bid has been rejected.

If you recall, the Real Housewives of Orange County star and estranged husband of Tamra Barney, filed bankruptcy back in December 2010. He petitioned for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, citing the nature of his debts as “primarily consumer debts incurred by an individual primarily for a personal, family, or household purpose.”

Simon revealed he had between 1-49 creditors, with assets and liabilities between $50,001 to $100,000. According to Radar, the bulk of Simon’s debt was in the form of credit cards, with a claim from Chase Bank to the tune of $20,640.00.

Chapter 13 doesn’t dismiss one’s debts but rather allows individuals to undergo a financial reorganization supervised by the courts. As for the reason Simon’s bankruptcy was rejected, it was because Simon “failed to file schedules, statements and/or plan for the bankruptcy.”

In other news, OC housewife Alexis Bellino recently celebrated her 34th birthday. Her pal and costar Gretchen Rossi helped throw her a small birthday bash and according to Alexis’ facebook, her husband Jim Bellino dropped by to surprise her.

Photos from Alexis’ birthday outing below, and the 6th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County returns March 6 on Bravo. Vicki Gunvalson tweeted a few days ago, “Is back in Orange County!!! Are you excited when we return in March?! Make sure you have your kleenex out!”

More bad news for Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi.

Just months after being forced to pay over $22,000 in attorney fees to her ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou, RadarOnline is now reporting Orange County Superior Court Judge Gregory Munoz tentatively ruled on Wednesday that Jay be awarded fees and costs of $40,799.38 as a result of an anti-SLAPP motion he filed. The official ruling is expected to be finalized any day now.

This all stems from Jay’s lawsuit against Gretchen for libel, slander and five other counts. “We filed a motion for attorneys fees asking for $80,000 knowing, the truth is, the best we could do is probably get half that because we won half the motion,” Jay’s attorney Bryan J. Freedman told RadarOnline.

Gretchen, who filed a counter suit against Jay for defamation, suffered another legal blow two months ago when the same judge threw out a huge portion of her lawsuit against Jay, including claims of defamation, slander and portrayal in a false light.

Jay is also suing Gretchen for defamation. Jay’s case stems from Gretchen’s claims that she was never romantically involved with him though the countless number of photos leaked out by him show otherwise.

“But the good part is she’ll be writing a check for $40,000 or be held in contempt of court,” Jay’s attorney added.

In other OC news, it seems there’s yet another bankruptcy to report. According to Jezebel.com, Simon Barney, estranged husband of Tamra Barney, filed bankruptcy on December 2, 2010. While no additional details were reported, the site reveals it was chapter 13 bankruptcy. We will bring you more details as soon as we get our hands on it.

More drama in the OC. Late Saturday night, Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney threw a drink if the face of her former cast mate Jeana Keough, just days after Jeana gave a shocking interview to RadarOnline, during which she took several shots at Tamra.

Below is what Jeana’s daughter, Kara Keough, posted on her twitter page Saturday night -

@TamraBarney to hear you threw a drink in @jeanakeough’s face makes me sick- she called me in tears- can’t believe I considered you a friend

Thanks for the support, everyone. I may be biased for my own mommy, but I’m on #TeamJeana all the way. Assault is never the answer.

As to what might have gotten Tamra so peeved, it all has to do with the comments Jeana made in her interview to Radar. Jeana stated she has been going on double dates with Tamra’s estranged husband Simon Barney and his new girlfriend. The interview then took a quick turn for the worse as Jeana, who might or might not be a professional enabler, declared that Simon has never hit Tamra, and stated that if there was any domestic violence in the relationship, Tamra was likely the offending party because she liked to playfully “whack” people.

Jeana also referred to Tamra as a “very dramatic” person and insinuated she made up the domestic voilence claims against Simon to get custody of their kids. Here’s what Tamra posted on her twitter page last night -

“Think twice jeana keough when you try to throw me in a pool cuz you talk smack. MIND YOUR OWN BUISNESS!”

Oddly enough, most of Jeana’s comments about Tamra have been removed from the RadarOnline article, though you can still see most of the comments here on our site. According to Realitywives.net, Tamra made the following posts on her facebook before deleting them -

“JEANA KEOUGH THINKS SHE KNOWS SO MUCH ABOUT MY LIFE? POOR POOR SICK WOMAN….LEAVE ME ALONE FOR THE LAST TIME! THEN SHE TRIES TO THROW ME IN A POOL CUZ I SERVED HER WITH A C&D LETTER FROM MY ATTORNEY….

STAY TUNED I HAVE THE TEXT AND EMAILS THAT JEANA SENT ME AFTER I CONFRONTED HER ABOUT HER INTERVIEW!”

Here’s what some other OC current/former cast members had to say about the incident -

Shane Keough: @Tamrabarney you are low class trash. How dare you threaten my mother when you are wrong to begin with.If you want privacy then leave OC.

Gretchen Rossi: @karakeough is your mom ok? I texted her but didn’t hear back… @karakeough was hoping to see u today! Glad mom is ok! Xoxo

Quinn Fry: OMG!!!!!!! You will never believe what happened today while were filming! Wine tossed, Tamra pissed me off!

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? WHO’S SIDE ARE YOU ON?

In a shocking new interview, former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough had some rather interesting things to say regarding her former castmate Tamra Barney.

In the interview with RadarOnline, Jeana, who quit the Bravo show midway through last season, shares that she goes on double dates with Tamra’s estranged husband Simon Barney, whom she has built a special friendship with.

“I see Simon. We’ve had dinner like once a week for the last two weeks,” Jeana told Radar adding that she ran into Simon shortly after his release for domestic violence against Tamra (all charges have since been dropped).

Jeana however makes it clear their dinners are double dates. “[He's] with this new girl, he’s dating. He’s very happy, very happy,” she said. “She’s a banker, in her 30s, she’s intelligent and cute and doesn’t wear any makeup and dresses low key. She’s a business girl.” Photos of Simon’s new girlfriend are below by the way.

The interview only got better or worse, depending on who you ask, as Jeana then decided to comment on Tamra’s accusations that Simon has been physically abusive to her for years. Jeana makes it very clear that she is solely on Team Simon and does not believe Tamra’s accusations.

“No, not [for] a second. I’ve only seen her whack him. I’ve never ever seen him do anything but try to protect her and say ‘you’ve had enough to drink’ or ‘your dress is a little short.’ But no. He’s a great guy.”

Jeana went on to describe Tamra as “very dramatic” before insinuating that Tamra is taking advantage of the system by making up the domestic violence claims in order to get sole custody of her kids with Simon.

“Her point was she was trying to prove to women that you don’t have to take abuse and while we all work for that — and I work for several organizations that do the same — it’s also abuse of the system,” said Jeana. “It’s a classic form of child custody battles to get more money, it’s to act like there’s something wrong and then they end up paying more money to settle with you and you get more time, it’s not worth it.”

Jeana added, “You know that girl, you’ve seen her on TV. You know her mouth. If that guy [Simon] would have ever hit her or touched her, if he looked crossed-eyed at her she was screaming at him at the top of her lungs. I’ve had her turn on me like a rattlesnake for nothing. So there is no way she would take abuse from anyone. She stands up for herself even when she’s not correct…”

Whoa at Jeana’s comments. Would like to hear your thoughts on what she said. And finally Simon posted photos of his younger stunning new girlfriend on Facebook recently. While some of his facebook friends wondered if she was the babysitter or his daughter, Simon made it clear that is not the case. “Not the Babysitter, not my kid. She is old enough to be their mother. But doesn’t look like it. She is my beautiful Girlfriend,” he posted. Pictures of her below -

It seems Vicki Gunvalson‘s love tank is completely depleted.

TMZ is reporting today that the Real Housewives of OC star filed for divorce from husband of 16 years, Donn Gunvalson, on Monday.

According to the divorce documents, Vicki, 48, married Donn in 1994. The two have no children together while Vicki’s has two children from a previous marriage — Michael, 23, and Briana, 22.

This news doesn’t come as the biggest surprise as the Gunvalsons have been shown experiencing marital problems on the Bravo hit show, though they attempted to make things work by renewing their vows back in July of 2009.

Vicki was also photographed kissing a college student earlier this year, something she described as just fun and not cheating. Vicki’s co-star and BFF on the show, Tamra Barney, also left her husband Simon Barney back in January.

UPDATE – The 6th season of the Real Housewives of OC is currently filming so this will likely be on the show.

UPDATE #2 – Castmate Alexis Bellino spoke to RadarOnline stating she is surprised by the divorce news. “This is totally unexpected, I really didn’t see it coming,” Alexis told Radar.“I’ve spent a great deal of time with them and they seemed very content with one another.” Alexis added – “Reality TV is hard on any marriage, and I will be praying for their family during this trying time.”

In new court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney makes some shocking allegations against her estranged husband Simon Barney.

According to RadarOnline, in the court documents which Tamra used to obtain a temporary restraining order against Simon, she alleges she suffered longtime physical and verbal abuse in his hands.

The court documents, issued in an Orange County courtroom September 23, allege that Simon physically assaulted her repeatedly during their 11-year marriage, as “his angry outbursts occurred, and continue to occur in the presence of our children.”

It doesn’t end there as Tamra states she did not break her silence on the alleged abuse until now because she “wrongfully believed that maybe these violent acts could be rationalized, and also due to embarrassment [she] did not report these instances of physical abuse in the past.”

In the docs, Tamra also alleges that last August, Simon told their 4-year-old daughter he wanted to change his cell phone ring tone to the sound of howling dogs for any calls he would receive from her mother.

As reported over the weekend, the Orange County DA’s office has decided to drop the domestic violence charges against Simon due to lack of sufficient evidence.  You can read what Simon had to say following that news here.

I don’t like to add my opinion on these types of stories, and from reading the previous comments, it seems a lot of people are split when it comes to who they believe.  I’ve made it clear over the years that Tamra is one of my least favorite housewives but I must say I’m more inclined to believe her side in this.  Why? Well, mainly based on Simon’s behavior on the last season of the OC Housewives. His very controlling behavior just seems to fall in line with that of abusers, but who knows?

TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED/SHOCKED BY TAMRA’S CLAIMS?

The OC Register is reporting today that the Orange County District Attorney’s Office has decided to drop the domestic violence charges against Simon Barney due to a lack of sufficient evidence.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star and estranged husband of Tamra Barney was arrested early Tuesday morning on domestic violence charges.  Tamra called the cops on Simon after alleging he threw a plastic dog leash at her during an argument.

According to the OC Register, the case was submitted to the O.C. District Attorney’s Office on Friday morning. It was reviewed and the DA’s office ultimately declined to file charges.

“It just shows that justice is blind, but it’s not stupid,” said Simon to the Register on Friday. “It’s not gullible, and it’s not persuaded by fame.”

Simon issued a statement on Wednesday denying the allegations, claiming Tamra made up the story in an attempt to get sole custody of their three children together.  Simon alleged Tamra’s motivation was the fact that he refused to allow Bravo cameras to film their kids.

Simon also told the OC Register on Friday that Tamra’s allegations were motivated by jealousy.  “Tammy ran into my new girlfriend,” he said, adding that he’s been dating her for about two months.

As we reported yesterday, Tamra was granted a temporary restraining order against Simon, banning him from getting within 100 feet of her and limiting the time he can spend their kids.  As part of the restraining order, Simon was forced to hand in his firearm to law enforcement authorities.

Tamra is however denying Simon’s accusations via a text message to the Register.  The “network has never put pressure on Simon to have the kids on the show … Ever! And Bravo is not happy he is saying that! They simply asked if the kids could be on the main title shoot last week and he said ‘NO’ and they said ‘thank you’.”

She continued, “I did not want the kids on the show this year unless it was a situation where me, Simon and the kids were doing something together as a family. Just cuz your [sic] divorcing doesn’t mean you we do not attend our childrens activities together… It breaks my heart that he has acted that way in front of the children and I hope he gets the help he needs to control his anger. I never wanted him arrested. The cops made that decision for me.”

Simon adds that Tamra is lying.  “I don’t want to be part of the show, part of the media; I want to go on with my life,” he said. “I don’t want any part of fame. It’s destructive. It’s a drug. I’m still the same person I was five years ago.”
