We all suspected the friendship between Tamra Barney and Gretchen Rossi was as fake as the rhinestone bracelet Gretchen bestowed upon Tamra. Cause yeah, now these two are a big ol' bust!
Promoting the hell out of her limited spinoff event, Tamra's OC Wedding, Tamra is trashing Gretchen in the media just like the good ole days. Among the lists of slights and infractions she has carefully documented in her iPhone notes is that Gretchen didn't get her a wedding present and was fake crying at the reunion.
"Gretchen brought me nothing," Tamradishes to OK! when asked what kind of wedding present a Housewife is worthy of. The answer: any gift. "Who doesn’t bring a gift or at least a congratulations card?" Tamra seethes. The answer: Gretchen. Or a Housewife that is only at your wedding for contractual obligations. Or possibly a Housewife whose spinoff opportunity you "stole"…
So, third time's the charm for Tamra Barney? I guess she'll be the judge…literally! Last night was the first installment of Tamra's OC Wedding limited series, and Eddie better hope his recent legal woes don't break the bank…because Tamra's wedding is definitely going to leave a mark on his account! Three dresses, a wild bachelor party, and drama galore later, we know that Tami and Ed do make it down the aisle.
It's been Tamra's dream to get married at the St. Regis, and a cancellation is about to make that happen. Tamra has enlisted celebrity wedding planner Diane Valentine. She did Usher's wedding, y'all! As they tour the venue with Diane and her man of honor, Tamra is beyond ready for her big day.
Back at the couple's gym, Eddie is channeling his inner Shaun T. Tamra reveals that they have an opening at the St. Regis…in five weeks. Eddie can't understand why they need a giant production after they've both already been married. Tamra whines that she's never had a big wedding, and she deserves it! After all, she's already practiced twice.
Who knew? It seems that Tamra Barney may have had her best year yet! The Real Housewives of Orange County star managed to come out of this season looking not too shabby compared to past seasons. Even as her normal two-faced mean girl self, Tamra seemed to be…dare I say it?…genuine and slightly relatable.
She got married to Eddie Judge (and a coveted spin-off!) and opened a business. Tamra managed to mature a little bit and rekindle some old frienemieships while being somewhat nice to those to whom she'd once (or thrice) treated brutally. Awww, our girl is all grown up, isn't she?
Tamra Barney cast Simon aside and found her true-true love in Eddie, but she and Simon still have three kids together. And Simon does not want his children to have anything to do with Real Housewives of Orange County – or any its spinoffs! Is Simon smarter than I remember him being or just spiteful?
“Simon has refused to allow his children to appear on the Real Housewives of Orange County since his split from Tamra and he wasn’t about to change his view for the wedding,” a production insider dished to RadarOnline about Tamra's upcoming 3-part wedding special.
"Producers of the show had approached him to allow the kids to appear on the show, Tamra’s OC Wedding. The kids were even offered financial compensation. But Simon wouldn’t budge. He blocked it.” Tamra's oldest son Ryan will appear in the series, however.
We're finally getting even more details of Tamra Barney'sover-the-top wedding to Eddie Judge straight from the reality star's mouth. The nuptials, which will be featured in a three-part Bravo spin-off beginning September 2, had the bride wearing three different dresses and incorporated all four of her children. The Real Housewives of Orange County's resident loudmouth even had all of her co-stars on hand to celebrate with her.
Tamra tells Us Weekly, "Words can't even describe the weekend. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It went by so fast!"
Describing her walk down the aisle with eldest son Ryan to get to her groom, she says, "Oh gosh … [Eddie's] so handsome and then he was in that tux. In the three and a half years I've known Eddie, I've never seen him cry. It was really wrenching to see him standing there with tears in his eyes. I thought, 'Oh my God, this guy really does love me!'"
Both Vicki Gunvalson and Heather Dubrow have confirmed their invitations, and now Alexis Bellino is doing the same. Hey, it's not a Bravo wedding without drama. Despite rumors to the contrary, Alexis will watch Tamra walk down the aisle. Third time's the charm!
Of course, it works out well…now Alexis will have some screen time on Tamra's OC Wedding spin-off!
