Tamra Barney first joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 3 while married to businessman Simon Barney. Sadly, the couple called it quits in 2010 after 11 years of marriage and four children together.
Now, Tamra is happily engaged to fiance Eddie Judge, and the couple plans to marry in a matter of months.
So just who is Eddie Judge?
The two were first seen together in early 2010 (before Tamra was formally divorced), and Eddie even used to be a pal of Simon’s at one point. We’re guessing that relationship soured once Simon saw Eddie canoodling with his estranged wife.
Simon told Radar Online he found out about the relationship by surprise when he saw Tamra and Eddie holding hands at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas in February 2010.
Tamra explained the situation, saying, “[Eddie and I] started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year.”
The couple have now been together for three years. Eddie popped the question to Tamra during a romantic trip to Bora Bora in March 2012. The couple also run a gym together called CUT Fitness.
Tamra says Eddie has the perfect background for running a fitness studio.
“He teaches spin classes and he’s really, really good at it,” Tamra told Wetpaint Entertainment in an exclusive interview. “At the end of the day, it’s my money going into it and the business will be mine. But Eddie will be there with me every step of the way.”
It looks like the couple that gets fit together stays together!
