Tamra Barney Judge knows her Real Housewives of Orange County blog is censored by producers, so the outspoken reality star took to her Facebook page to call Bravo out for manipulating scenes, creating unnecessary drama and making her out to be the villain.
“I submitted my Bravo blog, but here are a few facts that I am sure Bravo will take out of my blog when they post it,” the 46-year-old CUT Fitness owner told fans immediately after Monday’s viewing.
According to the mother of four, she alerted producers in advance that her daughter was sick and she would be unable to make the soiree, but seemingly desperate for drama, they forced Barney to wait until the last minute to let her costar know.
“They asked me to wait until the cameras were up in the limo to let Lizzie know,” she alleged. “Then they had her call me and say ‘How rude that you didn’t call me.’”
“Shannon told me she was sick too and was told by producers she had to go,” Barney said. “I told her that was not right and she needed to be strong with them.”
She then let fans know that she and Beador, 49, were actually on solid ground.
“Me and Shannon were friendly even though they make it out that we are not at this point- Just a few days prior we were rock climbing together,” she wrote.
RadarOnline.com previously revealed the Bravo hit’s tendency to stage scenes and create fake story archs: Though Barney seems desperate for a child with new husband Eddie Judge on this season, sources told Radar that the series regular actually “doesn’t want another baby.”
“It’s the last thing she wants,” the insider said. “It’s all for a story line for the show.”
While Bravo has posted blogs from other cast members this morning, Barney’s latest entry is mysteriously missing.
