What would The Real Housewives of Orange County be like without Tamra Barney? Luckily, it sounds like we won’t have to even fathom that mundane existence anytime soon because the reality star has officially quashed rumors that she was being fired from the Bravo series. What did she have to say? Read on to find out!


While appearing on Veria Living TV Network’s The Juice last Tuesday, July 15, she shot down rumors that she was being fired by reminding everyone to “always consider the source” when gossip like that pops up in headlines. File that one for later, everyone, because it is an essential life lesson you should always keep in mind for reality TV. Haters are always gonna hate, it’s just a fact.

“That rumor got started by a housewife that got fired,” Tamra added, shifting all the blame to former Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord — you know, the one from Brooklyn.

We have to admit that we’re shocked it wasn’t Gretchen Rossi who started this rumor, considering her ongoing feud with Tamra and some of the other RHOC ladies, but it was actually Alex who dropped this gossip tidbit in one of her video blogs.

As for what will keep her around? Tamra is right on the money by saying her “big mouth” offers some job security. Pat yourself on the back for that one, Tamra. Preaching the truth.
