Was Tamra Barney Fired From The Real Housewives of Orange County? (UPDATE)
UPDATE: The Real Housewives of Orange County casting rumors are continuing to swirl. Radar Online reports that Season 9 newbie Lizzie Rovsek will also not be invited back to the show for Season 10.
"Lizzie isn’t going to be asked back," says a source. "Lizzie just didn’t bring anything to the show, and was super boring." Lizzie recently told Wetpaint Entertainment that she wasn't sure whether she would return next season.
However, the insider claims that fellow newbie Shannon Beador will be returning. "Fans love Shannon because she is a bit of an airhead, likes to drink and party, and is a hot mess," the source adds.
“The network has had it with Tamra’s over-the-top ego and diva behavior. She sealed her fate by publicly stating that Bravo edited scenes to make her look bad,” a source tells Radar. “This is a very big no-no, and Tamra’s contract won’t be picked up for another season. The fact that she has ongoing legal issues with ex-husband Simon and really doesn’t have anything that interesting going on in her life made it a very easy decision.”
Tamra — who came on the show in Season 3 — berated the producers for editing scenes concerning her not showing up to co-star Lizzie Rovsek’s 34th birthday party. The fact that sources are saying Tamra and husband Eddie Judge faked their baby storyline probably isn’t helping the situation either.
Just to rub salt in the wound, the source adds that “Tamra thinks she will get another reality show from another network. She should ask frenemy Gretchen Rossi how well that worked out for her!” Yikes, it’s a bit harsh but true.
Tamra is apparently out of the country on vacation in Mexico, but the fact that she has seemingly deleted her Facebook doesn’t seem to bode well for her future on the show. Stay tuned for the latest!
