Hold onto your mimosas, Real Housewives of Orange County fans!
Word on the street is that veteran star Tamra Barney is getting the boot after this season, but of course homegirl isn’t taking these rumors lightly. The 46-year-old reality star is confronting the naysayers head-on, sending out some major snark from her Instagram page while on vacation in Mexico.
Alongside a photo, which reads “WILL WORK FOR FOOD,” Tamra addressed the rumors about her future on the show. “Haha. Sorry I just couldn’t resist! If you’ve heard the rumor you will get it,” Tamra wrote in the photo's caption. “I swear the bottom feeders can’t get enough of me lately! I just farted guys, there’s your next story. I’m laughing all the way. Keeping me relevant guys.”
We’ll ignore Tamra’s fart joke and just give her a pat on the back for speaking up for herself amid all the shade haters are throwing her direction. But why are people saying Tamra is fired? Well, if RadarOnline.com is to be believed, it’s due to her “diva behavior.”
“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.”
As it usually goes with firing news, it’s not over until Bravo sings.
