Tamra, 42, was photographed this weekend in Los Cabos, Mexico enjoying a steamy vacation with her boyfriend Eddie Judge, 37.
The two stayed at the Casa Dorado resort, during which they enjoyed some time on the beach and even rented jet skis to race across the ocean. You can see more bikini photos of Tamra and a shirtless Eddie below!
And it gets even better as TMZ also posted a video on their site of Tamra, mother of four, doing body shots. The video of Tamra Sue’s midlife crisis is below as well –

Watch What Happens Live – The guest tonight will be Top Chef Masters host Curtis Stone and Nene Leakes.
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.”

On the new episode titled “A New Lease On Life,” Alexis, Gretchen and Peggy get together for a day of shopping and socializing. The dinner conversation turns racy when the women share surprising sexual secrets. Alexis and her family head to San Diego for a family vacation; however, the trip turns out to be anything but relaxing for her.
Elsewhere, Gretchen continues to hound Slade during their trip to Palm Springs while Vicki is getting restless in Coto de Casa and wants to sell the house, though Donn is happy to stay put. Tamra wants to take steps to repair her friendship with Vicki and suggests a girls’ weekend in Cabo San Lucas.
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Alexis Bellino and Top Chef’s Carla Hall.
In other OC news, Alexis Bellino is revealing that she no longer considers Tamra Barney a true friend, after hearing Tamra’s comments on the latest episode. On last week’s show, Tamra compared Alexis’s husband Jim Bellino to her ex-husband Simon Barney, and then went on to predict Alexis’s marriage will not last. Below are excerpts from Alexis Bravo blog -
“This was so difficult for me to watch, because this is the first time it is brought to my attention that Tamra isn’t actually a friend. I was so shocked after this episode that I was speechless for probably an hour. I do not understand how someone can act like a friend, and be so friendly, do pilates with me, have a cocktail and talk about our friendship, and then say all those mean things about me right afterward. It’s completely beyond me. She compared her marriage to Simon to my marriage with Jim, which I thought was absurd. The only similarity is that Jim and Simon both like a more traditional marriage. We can see now that Tamra didn’t want that; however, I do still want that…
Furthermore, the fact that she would have the audacity to make a prediction about my marriage given that she is divorcing her husband is absolutely ridiculous… I mean, why the heck didn’t she just tell me she didn’t want to do pilates with me that night? It’s disgusting. Actually, I don’t know why I’m so shocked about this. She did the same thing to Vicki last year, acting as if Vicki was her friend to her face, she did the same thing to Gretchen two years ago, and now she is doing it to me. I see a common pattern developing.”
TELL US – DOES ALEXIS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE UPSET AT TAMRA’S COMMENTS? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
During an interview with the E! network last week, OC newbie Peggy accused Alexis of sabotaging her efforts to join the cast. “Alexis didn’t really want me on the show,” said Peggy.
But it didn’t end there as Peggy added, “Alexis told me that [Housewives]was supposed to be ‘her thing.’ That made it really hard to film because I am a very strong believer in friendship.” Meow!
Alexis admits that she indeed did not want Peggy on the show but states that it was intended to protect their friendship. “I [had] this sick feeling [that] the show was going to eat us alive—tear our friendship apart,” she told E!. “I was trying to protect our friendship because to me our friendship is more important than the show. I just wanted our friendship to last.”
“Now that she’s saying I didn’t want to share the spotlight,” Alexis added. “I’m like, ‘Girl, there’s going to be six girls on the show—I’m going to have to share the spotlight. Why do I care if I share the spotlight?’ I don’t understand her whole philosophy, she’s changed a lot this season, to be honest with you.”
So can this friendship be salvaged? Alexis isn’t certain. “I just know that my friend that I had four years ago before the show wouldn’t talk about me behind my back, wouldn’t say the things she’s saying in interviews that I’m finding out about. And a couple things happen during the season where she kicks me while I’m down.”
Moving on to Tamra Barney, who revealed on Watch What Happens Live this week that she and Peggy got roofied during a recent outing in NYC.
Tamra and Peggy were at a bar alongside Vicki Gunvalson, and NYC housewife Ramona Singer, when a fan walked up and handed them both drinks that he had bought them. “He asked us if we would go to a club with him and we said no over and over again,” said Tamra. Eventually, Tamra and Peggy ended up passing out once they got back to their hotel.
Tamra now reveals to RadarOnline that she is hoping to catch the perpetrator. “My attorney is calling to see if there is a surveillance video,” Tamra revealed. “I know the guy that did it walked up with two drinks that were pink. He had sunglasses on and looked Middle Eastern. That’s all I remember,” she added.
Tamra adds that she has learned her lesson not to accept drinks from strangers, and hopes that someone got a picture of the guy since everyone was taking photos that night.
The first ladies of Bravo returned last night, and if there’s one thing we learned from the Real Housewives of Orange County, it is that six seasons into doing the show, the ladies have still got it! Feel free to replace “it” with drama.
The season kicked off with the new opening title sequences, and missing from Tamra‘s scene is Simon of course and their three kids together. As we reported, Simon has now refused to allow his kids to be filmed. Interesting how Jon Gosselin and Simon all of a sudden decide filming is detrimental to their kids when things are no longer going their way. The ridiculousness began right away with new housewife Peggy Tanous declaring — “Soccer moms drive mini vans but this girl drives a Bentley.” Those words are already coming back to bite Peggy in the tushy as she and her hubby have defaulted on their home loan. Eh, who needs a home when you have a shiny Bentley!
The show begins with “Free Bitch” Tamra sipping wine, going over her freedom papers, while also trying to make amends. Tamra decides to call up the girls including Vicki and Gretchen to invite them to a small get together. Vicki reveals she is still hurt over Tamra ‘stabbing her in the back’ last season, while Gretchen laughs her way through the phoniness. “You know I miss you, I do,” claims Tamra. Umm, no you don’t. Gretchen accepts the invite and Tamra blames her problems with Simon for causing the rift with her and her costars. Safe to assume Tamra’s strategy this season will be to blame all of her past behavior on Simon.
