Exclusive: ‘Real Housewives Of Orange County’ Star Tamra Barney Has Moved In With Fiance, Plans To AdoptPosted: April 11, 2012
Tamra Barney is officially moving on from ex-husband Simon Barney in a big way. The Real Housewives of Orange County reality star got engaged to boyfriend Eddie Judge in March 2012 and is now looking to start a family with her handsome beau. Since accepting his proposal in Bora, Bora the duo have been talking seriously about expanding the family.
“I’m so excited. We haven’t had a chance really to celebrate,” she tells me of the engagement. “Life is so busy and we haven’t even actually started to plan where we are going to get married. We are talking about something next year. We are talking maybe destination wedding. There’s just so much to discuss.”
At the Bravo Upfront in New York City Tamra also mentioned that she would be open to a possible taping of the ceremony.
But what happens after the nuptials is what she and Eddie are really thinking about. She reveals that they just recently moved in with one another. “I think if we do decide we’re talking about adoption. He was adopted so we’d really like to give another child an opportunity,” she gushes. “He has no children and I still have three small children in the house so we just recently moved in together. He’s kind of wrapping his brain around that and we’re still taking baby steps and getting used to that.”
Tamra doesn’t shy away from the cameras on the Bravo series but as she pointed out, there’s more than just drama in her life. “My children are the main thing. I think I’m probably unbalanced on the show because I choose to not have my children on the show.” Instead of heels and makeup you can usually find Tamra and the family dunning baseball caps and sweats while hanging out at home. Working at the local library and helping out at PTA meetings is another way she spends her time out of the spotlight.
