Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Barney has announced on social media that Bravo would never fire her and even boasted that she was the “most talked about housewife” and hinted that, without her, the reality TV show would be a flop. On the other hand, we have spoken to more than one source close to production and they have revealed that there is a very good chance Bravo could send Barney packing. The RHOC producers are sick of Tamra’s diva behavior, her co-stars are refusing to film with her, and she has no storylines other than catty arguments she starts with the other housewives. After the reunion show part 2 producers were so sick of Tamra’s bitter nastiness that they actually fired her formally claims Radar!
Tamra’s major storyline, aside from arguing with her costars, was whether or not she and her new husband, Eddie, would have a baby, which is funny considering she is nearly fifty and already has children that she never sees. Her “I want a baby” storyline was more of a joke to viewers than intriguing, and is rumored to be one of the reasons that Bravo is considering firing her. She has nothing going on in her personal life worth viewing. Even her divorce rumors were fake!
Tamra lashed out at CDL for reporting on her antics and the low esteem in which she is held by viewers and Bravo producers alike. In typical Tamra fashion, rather than looking inward she slammed the messenger. See her Facebook post below:
Despite the fact that Tamra has appeared calm, cool, and collected, and confidently insisted she wasn’t being fired, it is becoming obvious that she is feeling the pressure. For someone who isn’t worrying about being fired, she is trying awfully hard to create a new storyline for herself so that Bravo will keep her around. Clearly the false divorce noise she drummed up about her husband Eddie Judge has quietened down so it’s time for new schtick.
On August 29th, Tamra leaked “exclusive” pictures of her son Ryan Vieth’s unborn baby’s sonogram picture to a major website, and gushed about how she couldn’t wait to become a grandmother. Since the “I want to have a baby” storyline didn’t resonate well, Tamra is now pushing “my son is having a baby.”
Really, Tamra? How does your son feel about you using his unborn child to try and make yourself look like a cute old grandma instead of a psychotic diva, and to save your reality TV paycheck no less? How much would you all like to bet that on the next season of RHOC all of Tamra’s scenes revolve around her becoming a grandma? Tamra obviously read online that Bravo was going to fire her because her personal life wasn’t worth filming, so she is trying to find exciting things in her personal life worth filming.
Do you think that Tamra’s new grandma storyline will save her from Bravo’s axe? On a scale of 1-10, how disgusting do you think it is that Tamra is using her unborn grandchild to improve her image? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
