Real Housewives of Orange County season 10 won't have Tamra Barney in the cast if the latest rumor is true. According to Radaronline, Barney was handed her "walking papers," and now Bravo is looking for a replacement who will be the opposite of what she's represents on the show.

The network is sick of its displeasure with Judge. Bravo has had it with her creating too much "infighting" among cast members.

The source says:

"Bravo is actively casting for someone who is a voice of reason. They want to replace [Tamra] who's stirring up too much s**t and the entire cast is against her."

The source tells Radaronline that Bravo wants someone unlike Judge to replace her on Real Housewives of Orange County. They want someone who can respected by the other cast members of the show, plus be someone who's rational. At this time, the show has "too much" drama.

According to the insider:

"Everyone is stirring the pot too much. So they're NOT looking for someone who's a sex pot or out of control. Actually, just the opposite. They want someone who's really successful, an entrepreneur or just someone who's well respected among their peers."

By making unnecessary drama among the other women, it's viewed as Tamra's way of avoiding her own problems on-camera.

"She not being authentic and the audience is not connecting with her," the source shares."She hasn't been completely open about her custody issues. It's supposed to be reality and instead she only wants to create drama with others around her."

Bravo hasn't confirmed or denied the rumor that Tamra Barney Judge has been fired. There were rumors before that she wasn't returning to Real Housewives of Orange County. Is it true this time?
