This week's Real Housewives of Orange County introduces viewers to the man Tamra Barney is now calling "the love of my life." But did the suddenly single 'Wife move too fast? No way, according to the RHOC star.
The rumor mill has been churning lately, speculating about Tamra's faithfulness during her marriage to ex Simon, but the OC Housewife shot down those rumors this week. "It's not true at all, no," she tells RumorFix. "Actually, the boyfriend that I have, and you'll see him on Season 6, is a very nice guy. He runs a law firm, very respectable and he was a mutual friend of mine, my business partner in real estate, and Simon had met him once or twice, as I did too, but they were never friends."
Regardless of why or how the rumor started, Tamra is attempting to rise above it all, even forgiving Simon in the process. "I have respect for him and he is the father of my children, so I understand maybe he did that rumor out of hurt," she says.
It's been an emotional time for Tamra, as she explains in her blog this week. "The funny thing about divorce is, even though you split and move on, it still continues to hurt," she writes. "The healing process is long and hard. One day I'm dealing with my own emotions, and the next I'm dealing with the kids' emotions, which breaks my heart."
But they say there's a silver lining to every cloud, and Tamra's experience with divorce is no exception. She's reportedly set to chronicle her path through divorce in the public eye in a book she's writing, tentatively titled "The Reality Behind Divorce."
