Tamra Barney

They’re officially back! The Real Housewives of Orange County, aka the first blondes ladies of Bravo housewives, return tonight for their sixth season.

And judging from the previews, the drama is still alive and well amongst some of the cast members. In fact, Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney pickup their feud from seasons past tonight when they go at it during a get together after Gretchen refers to Tamra as an “evil bitch.”

Meanwhile, it seems new “housewife” Fernanda Rocha, 34, might be getting the Jennifer Gilbert treatment this season. Who is Jennifer Gilbert you ask? Well, Jennifer was cast to be a housewife on the Real Housewives of NYC last season, only to get the shaft during the season, by being demoted to an extra. Fernanda, who is openly bisexual, is noticeably absent from the official cast photo above, though she does appear in another one.

And when Vicky Gunvalson was asked about Fernanda, this is what Vicky had to say -  “ [Fernanda]‘s not really one of the Housewives. She’s somebody that comes in and socializes with us, but I don’t really know how we’re labeling Fernanda this year. We’ve haven’t really been told. I know her very little still. I don’t work out with her. I don’t socialize with her. She seems like a sweet girl.”

And finally, Alexis Bellino revealed in a recent interview with the E! network that her husband Jim Bellino quit the show. Reason? Jim apparently felt Bravo gave him a “jerk” edit last season. “He’s pretty much against the show,” Alexis revealed. “All they want to do is rip him apart.”

Watch What Happens Live – OC Housewives Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson will be joining Andy Cohen in the Bravo clubhouse tonight.

The Real Housewives of Orange Country premieres at 10 p.m. (EST) on Bravo. Below is a preview clip -

Ryan Vieth, son of Tamra Barney has been slapped with a restraining order and ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend.

According to TMZ, Ryan, who also stars on the Real Housewives of Orange County, used to date Daniella Kelley (pictured below) — his mom’s stylist — but new court documents now require him to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her dog.

Sources close to Daniella tell TMZ that Ryan began harassing her after she broke up with him last year. Ryan allegedly began showing up to her house randomly and even posted racy photos of her on TheDirty website, which have now been removed.

Ryan’s lawyer however makes it clear to TMZ that “He broke up with HER,” adding that the TRO also states Daniella can’t contact Ryan or his family. Both parties agreed to extend the order until August of 2011.

Tamra is now defending her son in a statement to RadarOnline. “It’s heart breaking that this troubled girl who we all cared about and let into our lives is out for her 15 minutes,” Tamra told Radar. “They broke up months ago and they were BOTH ordered to stay away from each other.”

Tamra also adds that Daniella has not been abiding by the restraining order. “She continues to contact him any way she can,” Tamra revealed. “Our whole family has blocked her from communication and now she is using the media to get attention. I really hope that she can move on and get the help she needs.”

In other OC news, Tamra alongside cast mates Alexis Bellino and new housewife Peggy Tanous appeared on the Lopez Tonight show yesterday. Below is a video clip of their appearance.

Real Housewives of OC Season 6

They’re baaack! Following the recent announcement that the Real Housewives of Orange County will be returning for a sixth season on March 6, Bravo has now released the new cast photos and a video trailer.

And just as reported, there are indeed two new faces amongst the cast, while former housewife Lynn Curtin got LisaWuHartwelled the axe. Though as you can see in the trailer below, Lynn will make some guest appearances this season.

On the far left in the above photo is Fernanda Rocha. She is a 34-year old Brazilian fitness instructor, who made recent headlines for being openly bisexual. Fernanda is said to be a friend of Tamra’s.

And the other new housewife, seated on the far right, is Peggy Tanous, a 41-year old former model and now stay-at-home mom. “People call me ‘Feisty Peggy’ and I can definitely be feisty! I’m an Aries [with a] very strong personality. Friends say I’m the life of the party,” Peggy tells UsWeekly, also revealing she joined the cast at the urging of fellow housewife Alexis Bellino.

Joining Peggy, Fernanda, and Alexis this season will be Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney, and Vicki Gunvalson. The season trailer is below, while cast photos and what to expect from each of the housewives on season 6 is also below.

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!”

Popular Bravo housewives Lisa Vanderpump and Nene Leakes were both on hand to help the network celebrate it’s first and fingers crossed last New Year’s Eve Party last Friday, and for some reason, no one is talking about the little tiff that occurred between the two housewives. But it’s a slow news day so we’ll talk about it!

It all started about midway through the 2-hour-show when the show returned from a commercial break and host Andy Cohen mentioned that Lisa of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had just confronted Nene of the Real Housewives of Atlanta about some comments she made.

Lisa told Nene she had heard her diss her franchise by stating all the women had too much plastic surgery. Lisa stated she found Nene’s comments to be hypocritical considering Nene had gotten a nose job, boob job and liposuction this year alone.

Nene immediately looked none too pleased with Lisa and adamantly denied ever saying those things. Nene then went on to add that she would never say such a thing about the Beverly Hills ladies because she thinks “they are boring.” Lisa looked a bit stunned as she tried to stick up for her show, stating the dinner from hell episode was far from boring. Nene disagreed calling it “wack.”

The little tiff ended and Nene appeared to give Lisa the cold shoulder for the remainder of the show. Unfortunately the footage has yet to appear online but if anyone comes across it, feel free to post the link in the comments section.

And the story gets even better as it turns out Lisa was right. Nene did indeed utter those words about the Beverly Hills Housewives. In fact, we at Reality Tea blogged about this back on February 26, 2010. Nene’s comments were made as rumors were swirling about the yet to be confirmed Beverly Hills franchise. Bravo wouldn’t officially confirm the news until weeks later.

Nene told FoxNews back then, “If they do the Beverly Hills Housewives, they’ll probably be all plastic – big lips, fake tits, tummy tucks.” Yikes, Guess Nene didn’t think Lisa was paying attention.

Other highlights of the show included Tamra Barney making out with Andy Cohen at midnight, Jeff Lewis teasing Kim Zolciak about pretty much everything, Ellen Barkin calling in drunk, Jenni Pulos debuting her new rap, and of course the wedding between Giggy and Grandma Wrinkles. Grandma Wrinkles refused to sign a prenup by the way. Can you blame her?

Jeff Lewis also tweeted the following after the show – “Still recovering from NYE. WWHL camera didn’t catch @KimZolciak throwing her drink on me after my off color comment. I probably deserved it.”

So, Nene and Lisa are the favorites of their franchises according to our polls bringing us to the question of the day…

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 details are being revealed about the Saturday night showdown between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Tamra Barney and Jeana Keough, and it seems Jeana wasn’t exactly an innocent victim in the incident.

In fact according to RadarOnline and E! News, Jeana was the one who provoked the physical altercation with Tamra by trying to push her into a pool unsuccessfully.

RadarOnline reports that Tamra was furious with certain comments Jeana had been making about her in the press, comments which she felt were inaccurate, so she tried to hand Jeana a cease and desist letter from her lawyer at a wrap party for the Bravo show. The party took place at castmate’s Vicki Gunvalson’s house according to E! News.

That didn’t go so well according to Radar. “Jeana said to Tamra, ‘Youre’ a b—- and I’m gonna throw you’re a– in the pool,’” a witness tells Radar. “Then she pushed Tamra, as if she was trying to throw her in the pool.”

This then led to Tamra throwing a glass of wine in Jeana’s face, and as Tamra walked away, Jeana attempted to throw her wine at Tamra, but the drink ended up missing her, instead soaking another woman’s white dress. That woman reportedly grabbed Jeana and pushed her up against a wall.

It wasn’t over yet folks as Tamra then encountered Jeana and a male friend in the driveway as she tried to leave the party. Jeana’s friend then took a wine glass and threw it at Tamra’s feet, with glass shattering and flying everywhere.

Bravo’s cameras were reportedly on hand to film the event.

In other news, the AbsurdToSublime site is reporting that Gretchen Rossi is now engaged. According to the site, her boyfriend of a year and a half, Slade Smiley, proposed to her Saturday night during the filming of the Season 6 Real Housewives of Orange County Finale.

If true, no official announcement yet from either party, though Gretchen did post a photo of she and Slade with their parents over the weekend. We’re guessing the announcement will likely come from a major media outlet like Bethenny Frankel did with PEOPLE magazine when she got engaged. The site also reports that Slade recently had his vasectomy reversed.

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!
