Surprise, surprise, another cast member is getting ready to bite the dust in the Real Housewives franchise. On the heels of Teresa Giudice getting fired from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, there has been an increase in reports claiming that Tamra Barney is getting fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Tamra is a notoriously mean girl who cruelly ridiculed Lizzie Rovsek out of pure jealously. After Eddie Judge admitted that like to have sex with Lizzie his envious wife said: Tamra cursed out Lizzie and said, “Listen Kentucky-Fried-Titties, my husband wouldn’t touch you with a ten foot pole.” Ya, right! Eddie would love to touch Lizzie and not with a ten foot pole….
The show just ended its ninth season on August 18th, and we’re already looking at cast replacements for next season. Apparently, Bravo is thinking of firing Tamra because of her crappy attitude towards her co-stars and towards the show in general. See, there’s a delicate balance here – the cast members have to be catty enough to generate gossip and good TV drama, but not so much that they cause major behind-the-scenes problems. Ideally, everyone would just be really good at acting and fake their drama, but these are not professionally trained thespians – they’re reality stars. They are on reality TV for a reason, and that’s usually because they failed at acting, music, or another, more respected profession.
Really, the only reason that Tamra is still on the show is because her divorce drama from Eddie Judge was bringing a lot of publicity, even if the divorce isn’t necessarily a ‘divorce’. Yeah, that’s right – Tamra’s totally been faking the majority of her relationship problems with Eddie, which she knows has been keeping her relevant in the eyes of Bravo. She understands that the minute she stops being a draw, she’s done for – and unfortunately for her, that’s already happened. Bravo doesn’t see the attention she gets as enough of an offset for her horrendous behavior, and so it’s bye-bye time for Tamra Barney.
Of course Tamra Barney thinks that reporting the gossip and news about her, Eddie Judge, their fake divorce and Real Housewives of Orange County is verboten. Of course Tamra took the time out of her busy entrepreneurial schedule (Tamra hilariously decribes herself on her Facebook page as an ‘entrepreneur’) to slam CDL – check image above. In any case, let’s see what Bravo does.
