Tamara Barney will be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 10, just in case you thought she was fired from the Bravo reality show. Tamara, who confirmed her return to RHOC during an appearance at the recent Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce premiere, states that she will be “herself” on the upcoming season and that means “100 percent honest.”
“I just want to be me. I’m 100% honest and I’m loyal and I’m truthful in everything I say.”
Reality Tea reports that Tamra Barney does wish the “whole last season” never happened, but she doesn’t regret a thing she did. Instead, she puts the whole drama-fest on the shoulders of everyone else who did her wrong, including her ex-husband, Simon Barney.
“I was going through a lot personally with my ex. I keep my children off the show for a reason and this was something that my ex felt the need to make very very public in a very negative way for me and the kids, so it was very difficult for me as a mother to film a show of this sort and to not worry about exploiting my children.”
Aside from blaming her ex for the way things went down last season, Barney doesn’t have positive things to say about anyone else involved in the show. She tells Reality Tea that she found out who her friends were and that it was “very unfortunate” that Heather Dubrow was the only person who supported her last during the last season of Real Housewives of Orange County.
“Heather’s been my rock. She’s my girl. It was hard. I really truly found out who my friends were.”
Other than Heather, Tamara was fairly negative when it came to talking about Vicki Gunvalson, Lizzie Rovsek, and — surprise — Gretchen Rossi.

At first, she got a bit snarky when asked about Gretchen, saying “who is this person you speak of?” However, she tried her best to show a little love towards her former castmate, using words including “love” and “happiness.”
“We worked together and part of working together was judging each other… But now that we’re not doing anything you know I only wish her happiness, love, and positive things in her life.”
Bravo has yet to confirm is Tamara Barney is actually returning to the show, but she seems to be sure that she is. Fans will have to wait until the Season 10 cast list is confirmed to find out who’s coming and who’s going.
For now, it’s certain that Amanda Timmons, who was rumored to be on the list of those asked to join the show, will not be on the new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. RumorFix reports that the wife of 98 Degrees band member Jeff Timmons declined the offer, instead opting for exploring the possibility of having her own show with her family.
