Tamra Barney has been filming The Real Housewives of Orange County for years and she has shared her journey with viewers through the good and the bad. A couple of years ago, Tamra and her ex-husband, Simon Barney, decided to divorce while filming the show and Barney was clearly struggling with her emotional state.
Barney has also admitted that she has struggled earlier in her life with suicide attempts, depression and handling things on her own with a young child. And while Tamra is happy these days with Eddie Judge, there have been reports that Tamra is having marital issues with him as well. And Lizzie Rovsek has a theory as to what is happening with her.
According to a new Bravo report, Lizzie believes that Tamra Barney is playing a projection game. Barney is projecting all of the stress and issues in her life onto the other ladies, including Lizzie herself. It is no secret that Lizzie has been the victim of Tamra's all season.
"To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill," Lizzie writes about Tamra Barney.
"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you," she adds.
And maybe the drama just became too much for Tamra. There have been reports that Barney faked her marital tensions for the show, including their conversations about having a baby. Apparently, she had a boring storyline after getting married, so she may have faked it for the cameras
According to The Inquisitr, viewers will have to stick it out with Tamra, as she has been hired back for yet another season. The report reveals that Barney has confirmed her return to the show. Apparently, Lizzie isn't into the whole projection game, so she may not return to The Real Housewives of Orange County if Barney is filming the upcoming season.
Are you surprised that Tamra Barney is projecting her issues onto Lizzie?
