A WWHL Editor finally fulfills his dream of meeting Tamra Barney.

Jun 28, 2012

I should note that about once a week all of us producers hang around after the show and enjoy the perks of working in the Bravo Clubhouse. And by perks I mean cocktails. Delicious, much-earned, somewhat hastily mixed, but all the while necessary cocktails. That said, I refuse to believe it was just the cocktails speaking that prompted this romantic rendezvous. No, no. This is about much more than meets the eye. This is about a fleeting moment for our dear ginger-haired friend. It’s about real love -- the love between an editor and his muse. Finally, for about 5 minutes of their lives, James and Tamra were together at last.
 
On occasion while cutting together a Tamra-related package for the show, James has mentioned he’d like to talk to Tamra one of these days. He claims she “reminds him of a friend of his,” but I think this is simply a defensive mechanism working inside James’ heart. “Don’t get too close,” his heart tells him, “Don’t get too close.” On that night, James got too close.
 
This probably isn’t as interesting/comical to you as it has been for me. But I don’t care. The pleasure I get from the ginger/Tamra relationship is exhilarating. Nor do I care that I have completely exploited dear quick-fingers for the sake of this blog post. Thank you, James.
