A Tamra Barney video hit the web on Thursday morning and featured the Real Housewives of Orange County star in several compromising positions. However, the video isn’t what people think.
On March 5, Tamra Barney cleared up the rumors in an interview with Perez Hilton. Below is her statement.
“I came up with the concept. As you might know I love to get people’s attention. Knowing that there are a lot of celebrities out there that got noticed from ‘sex tapes’ I used that concept as a spoof to get our message of health and fitness … and subscribers.”
“Our purpose for creating a CUT Fitness YouTube was to reach out beyond our studio in Rancho Santa Margarita and help people all over the world live a healthy lifestyle.
“We get request from around the world asking for a CUT Fitness in their area. Starting next week we are going to provide workouts, fitness tips, nutrition and healthy lifestyle videos, so make sure to subscribe.”
Tamra Barney and her husband, Eddie Judge, began dating after the reality star’s split from her ex-husband, Simon. After fans met Judge on the show, the two engaged in a steamy, caught-on-camera moment, which featured the pair naked in a jacuzzi tub.
While the scene was hardly a sex tape, it certainly captured the attention of viewers, which is likely why Tamra Barney came up with the idea of a “sex tape” to promote her business.
In addition to Tamra Barney’s gym, the mother of three is also busy with her role on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County. For the last few weeks, she and the cast, including Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon Beador, Lizzie Rovsek, Heather Dubrow, Katie Hamilton, and Meghan Edmonds, have been filming scenes for the show’s 10th season in Southern California.
Although Tamra Barney and her co-star, Gunvalson, were on the outs after Season 9 and hadn’t spoken since the reunion when they began filming Season 10, they appear to have made amends.
As the Inquisitr reported weeks ago, Barney and Gunvalson were spotted together at Rovsek’s birthday celebration in early February. According to All About the Tea, Barney and Gunvalson posed for photos, along with Rovsek, Beador, Hamilton, and Danielle Gregorio (who is not part of the show’s season 10 cast) during their co-star’s 34th birthday party.
Tamra Barney will return to Bravo for The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10 later this year.
