The Real Housewives of Orange County, the original series in what has now become a major franchise for Bravo, will celebrate another lavish wedding in the making. Tamra Barney has agreed to marry her boyfriend and current business partner Eddie Judge. Much of the current season of the Real Housewives this season has centered on whether or not Eddie is ready to set a date. Tamra assures everyone that there is definitely a wedding in her future and that the wedding will take place in June.
Viewers of the show watched Eddie whisk Tamra away on a romantic vacation, and create an elaborate proposal that involved opening a clam with a ring strategically placed inside. Tamra was overwhelmed at the unexpected
proposal, but quickly overcame that emotion in time to flash her major bling. The ring itself came from Costco and is a halo cut diamond on a simple band. For the wedding, Tamra is having two eternity bands designed to fit on either side to complete her breathtaking ring.
Tamra who has long referred to herself as the hottest housewife and in keeping with that attitude has revealed that there will be at least three dresses required for her big day. She will of course have the dress for the ceremony, and then she will do a wardrobe change for a dinner/cocktail type hour and will finally change into a dress for her reception.
Though Tamra and Eddie are quite excited to share their big day with the world, there are rumors that the proposal was actually orchestrated by Bravo. Slade Smiley actually came out and said the network offered to provide he and longtime girlfriend Gretchen with an exotic location and a ring if he was willing to propose on the show. Very soon afterwards the world watched as Tamra and Eddie decided they were finally ready.
