Real Housewives’ Tamra Barney Responds to ‘Vicious’ Rumors About a Faked Engagement to Eddie Judge
What started off as a sweet, romantic story about Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Barney getting engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Eddie Judge, turned ugly this week. TMZ published a story based on a source who said Gretchen Rossi thought Bravo helped the couple “fake” a proposal for the Season 7 finale. Gretchen quickly denied saying anything of the kind and Bravo told Wetpaint Entertainment that the story was a complete fabrication. Now Tamra Barney is speaking out about what really happened when she got engaged.
“We can’t wait to take our relationship to the next level. Proposing to me in Bora Bora was a huge surprise and the most romantic trip of my life,” the blonde beauty told Rumor Fix. As for the “hurtful and vicious” story that supposedly came from Gretchen, Tamra said, “Bravo does not control my life and my love cannot be bought or manipulated by them or anyone else.”
The soon-to-be Mrs. Judge also posted a photo of the trip on her Facebook page, and we have to say the pair look genuinely happy. Congrats, Tamra and Eddie!
