We all know that most women claw their way into a franchise and will do anything to stay there. Of course, sometimes even ridiculous feuds and story lines don't work, do they Gretchen Rossi? It's refreshing to see a housewife realize that the show isn't a be-all, end-all. Lydia didn't like the negativity and drama, so she peaced out…but she's got a great suggestion of someone to take her place!
That Heather Dubrow from Real Housewives of Orange County is one busy, busy, busy little bee! Don't believe me? Fear not, she's going to tell you herself! The reality star, mom, wife (I know it's in the show title, but we all know that actual "wives" on these franchises are few and far between!), and former Malibu Country actress (sorry, I couldn't resist!) has a lot on her plate these days.
Even though her season has finished filming, Heather is trying to juggle car pools, hosting gigs, and acting roles…not to mention she and husband Terry are building a new home. It's a rough life for those Dubrows!
Tamra Barney (the reality star now known as Tamra Judge) stopped by the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live and while she was hanging out she cleared up the Malibu Country misunderstandings, talked about having babies with Eddie Judge and more.
Andy started the show off rolling some of the tape from Gretchen Rossi's lunch with Alexis and asked Tamra if Gretchen has been overdoing the Botox because her face was so frozen. Tamra added, "It was like no emotion at all and this used to be her best friend. I kinda felt bad for Alexis."
They dove right in to address the Malibu Country role (again!) Tamra attempted to clear it up. "I think the whole story wasn't told. I think that Gretchen did get a call for a part that was not the part that Heather got, clearly. And I think there were some Beverly Hills housewives, Alexis was called. It was a role as an extra. So what happened was as soon as Heather got a main role, that extra role was canceled. But the thing is is that Gretchen kept up with "I got the role, I got the role" when there was no role to get. The role got shut down. Heather shut it down. So then Gretchen lied about it and said she got it."
On a recent episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge revealed a painful secret. While going through her divorce to high school sweetheart Darren Vieth, she tried to overdose on pills and Nyquil. Tamra's admission served to explain why she's so closed off and good at deflecting with her over-the-top antics. After the episode aired, her ex (father of her oldest son Ryan) is coming forward with accusations of cheating and theatrics. It looks like someone is ready to cash in their fifteen minutes! To be honest, I'm actually surprised we haven't heard from this dude sooner.
Of course, Tamra isn't one to sit by silently when someone is spreading rumors about her, so she's fighting back the way all good Bravo housewives do. That's right! She's calling him out on Twitter. I have a feeling that Darren is going to be no match for Tamra!
In an interview with Radar Online, Tamra's (first) ex-husband is speaking out over Tamra's accusations that he is partly to blame for what drove her to her first suicide attempt. Just like Tamra, Darren has a sharp tongue and doesn't hold back, so I can see where the pair possibly butted heads during their young union. He tells the site, “Tamra is a liar, a cheater and a bad mother to our son, Ryan, and she seemed to enjoy constant drama in her life because it lead to attention,” adding, “Tamra usually never tells the entire story, and this time is no different.” Wait, what? Tamra enjoys drama?
