Let’s take a look back at Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge!!! What Tamra had to say about her and Eddie over a year ago…
Tamra Barney has announced that she and Eddie Judge are thinking about more than the next time they jump in the tub.
According to The Real Housewives Of Orange County star, the couple are now planning to wed.
Woo-hoo!! I’m marrying a judge… no more speeding tickets for me! Huh? Yes, he is a judge… his NAME is Eddie JUDGE, so he IS a judge… Woo-hoo!!
We’ve talked about marriage and we want to get married. The recently separated housewife said she believes that Eddie was her soul-mate. ’It’s an insane amount of love; I have never said term ‘soul mate’ before, but we are!’ ’We finish each other’s sentences… I’m not the easiest person in the world and he gets me, nor does he judge. He simply says, “that’s my girl.”‘
Tamra, what does Eddie really do… for real?? He’s a judge. No, Tamra… really, what does Eddie do?? He’s a judge. Tamra… for real now… what does Eddie… oh, nevermind…
The 42-year-old said that the only thing stopping the couple from tying the knot right away is her four children, which she shares with her ex-husband Simon Barney.
‘Within the next year we’ll be married,’ she said. ’It’s all about timing right now and the kids play a huge part. ’If it weren’t for the kids, we’d be married right now… but we’re happy as can be; it’s happily ever after!’
Esscuz me… uh Tamra… listen carefully: If Eddie were a real judge, he would know that filming scenes with you naked in a bathtub would give Simon evidence against you in family court. Eddie, tell them you’re a judge… come on Eddie, tell them…
The reality star gushed about her hunky new man, who she says is ‘one of the best things that’s ever happened in my life’. ’He’s understanding, he’s caring and he just really has a big heart.’ She said that having more children will also play a big part in their future.
‘Eddie is adopted and said he’d even like to adopt,’ she said.
NOTE: Maybe Eddie doesn’t understand what the definition of ‘adopted’ is because his own sister tells a different story about his ‘adoption’:
According to Eddie Judge’s sister, Shalimar Torres, Eddie Judge is originally from Mexico. Eddie arrived in America at a young age after Eddie’s mother took off from her family in Mexico, taking Eddie with her.
“When Eddie was a teenager he met this man who gave him odd side jobs and he eventually took Eddie in and became his foster dad,” Shalimar disclosed. “That’s when he changed his last name to Judge.
Eddie’s sister also made the following claims about Tamra’s relationship with Eddie, including how Bravo inadvertently initiated the relationship between Tamra and Eddie.
How did Tamra and Eddie meet?
Shalimar says it was originally staged by the Bravo production team of Real Housewives of Orange County. “When everyone was having a hard time because of the economy the show wanted to make it look like Tamra was trying to downsize so they met through her realtor,” Shalimar said. “They came and asked if they could use our house to make it look like Tamra was interested in buying it.
Now Tamra… you have to pretend that you like this guy so that we can film his house… Oh! You really do like him? Sweet!!
The Bravo production company would have to had permission from the home owner and the realty company to film Tamra viewing the house. According to Shalimar, “they” was the Bravo production company.
“Soon Tamra started coming over to have lunch with Eddie and then they pretty much started dating. When she met my brother she was still married,” Shalimar concluded.
