Tamra Barney’s desire to have another child is no secret and she’s even cried about the longing on her Bravo reality show, but her ex-costar Slade Smiley slammed her tearful confession, telling exclusively that she is faking another storyline.

There is no love lost between Gretchen Rossi, her fiancé and the Real Housewives of Orange County star, and now the war of words is heating up between the three.

“Tamra is just coming up with ‘I want a baby’ request for a storyline,” Smiley told

Viewers saw Barney’s tears flowing this season on RHOC when she told her co-stars that she was a “part-time mom” because of her nasty custody battle with Simon Barney over their three children and wanted to have a child with her new husband, Eddie Judge.

“She cried for part of the show, it was ridiculous.  She needed a storyline.  So she came up with the baby one,” Smiley told about the 47-year-old Housewife.

Slamming the authenticity of her actions, Smiley told that as a veteran of the show who had multiple interactions with Barney he was privy to the storyline manipulations.

“Everything Tamra does is completely manufactured for the show.”
