Tamra Barney, a Southern California native from Glendora, CA, joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 3. She has four children -– 25 year-old Ryan, and three children with ex-husband, Simon Barney.
After a year of separation from Simon and the finalization of their divorce, Tamra finally feels like she's her own person. She's happy, healthy and confident. She has plans to start a gym, is still active in real estate, and is even having her O.C.-style DD breast implants removed in favor of her natural chest. As Tamra says, "fake breast are so 1980s."
Her ongoing relationship with boyfriend Eddie is also bringing happiness to Tamra's life. After celebrating a full year together, Eddie is ready to progress further, but Tamra is hesitant of jumping in too deep, too soon.
This year, Tamra is all about repairing the damaged relationship with long-time enemy, Gretchen. However, Vicki is not about to share BFF Tamra with Gretchen. And while Tamra likes Vicki's new boyfriend, Brooks, she makes it clear that she is keeping a close watch on him.
