In other OC news, Simon Barney is defending himself against the accusations of estranged wife Tamra Barney on the last episode. If you recall, Tamra accused Simon of flipping out and harassing her via text messaging over her trip to Spain. Tamra stated he was upset she didn’t tell him about her 10-day vacay with beau Eddie Judge.
Well, Simon denies harassing Tamra and posted the entire text message exchange between the two following that trip on his facebook page. Simon posted the messages along with the following statement –
“I have always tried to be above all the Drama and lies this and last season. This is the one rare time that I have commented about her or the show. That being said… My soon to be ex tells Vicki I was harassing her by text while she was in Spain. So I decided to look back at the texts I sent her when I found out she was in Spain, and my kids were being watch by 4 different people, including a minor. Maybe it’s me, but after reading it and I don’t see the harassment.Do you?”
Well, we’ll let you be the judge. The screen shots of the text messages are below.

In other OC news, it seemsTamra Barneyhas had a change of heart after first expressing regret over her now infamous soft-core porn bathtub scene with beau Eddie Judge. Right after the episode aired, Tamra blogged calling the scene a “big mistake” and “not one of my smartest moments on TV.”
Fast forward to today and Tamra tells Life & Style she has no regrets. “I’m a free spirit, so I’m fine with it,” she says. “It probably wasn’t one of my better on-camera choices, because one day I might have to answer to my children, but they don’t watch the show. And would they disown me because I’m happy and in love? No.” Tamra then adds, “You see more on daytime soap operas!”
And finally, Gretchen Rossiis calling out Tamra in a new interview with Popeater. According to Gretchen, Tamra is a phony who amps up the drama when cameras are turned on.
“Tamra [Barney] definitely turns it on for the cameras,” Gretchen tells the site. “She and I get along really well off camera, but when we’re on camera she’s just mean and evil. Not nice.”
Gretchen then goes on to explain why she’s okay with not being the star of the show. “I think [Tamra] wants to be the star of the show, and that’s fine with me,” she said. “Because if she wants to be the star of the show, that means she’s a train wreck, so I’m totally OK with that.”

It was a very busy day for Bravo yesterday as the network not only announced new and returning shows, but also hosted a total of 3 different upfront parties in 3 different cities!
And of course the housewives came out to party alongside plenty of other Bravolebrities. Above is a photo of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast at the Los Angeles party. Also at the LA party was the entire cast of the Real Housewives of BH including Kim Richards.
Joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast at the Chicago party was none other than Bethenny Frankel, who tweeted that there was a clear division amongst the cast members but more on that below.
At the New York party were the Real Housewives of NJ and the Real Housewives of NYC. Casts of other Bravo shows such as Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, Million Matchmaker & more were also in attendance. It is a photo overload below!
Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Bravo officially announced the RHOA and the RHOBH will be returning for another season. Not exactly surprising as the first had the highest ratings in housewives history while the later has already began filming. The big surprise however was the early renewal of Bethenny Ever After as while the ratings are still good, it has declined over 20% from its debut season.
Not announced yesterday? The Real Housewives of DC which is reported to have been canceled. The only two housewives franchises missing from the Bravo parties? The RHODC and the RHMIA.

The fourth episode of theReal Housewives of Orange County aired last night as Tamra Sue continued her televised attempts at sticking it to her ex Simon, you know, just incase he missed that whole soft-core porn scene from last week. Also, Vicki continued to make Tamra pay for her crimes from last season, while Gretchen once again ponders marrying Slade. All that was missing was Gretchen bringing up the princess comment again and this episode would have been complete with issues that no longer need to be revisited.
We start out with Tamra in a limo as she prepares to pick up Vicki for their Cabo trip. Tamra calls beau Eddie on the phone, who is probably still hung over from having to down a bottle of wine in other to get into the bathtub with her last week. Tamra reveals she feels a bit nervous about the trip due to the negative things she said about Vicki last season. Bravo pans back to some of that footage, and while I think Tamra is undoubtedly a two faced snake, I do feel she said most of what she said about Vicki in other to appease to her then hubby Simon, who of course hated Vicki.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, theReal 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.”
