Is Tamra Barney Creating Fake Story Lines For ‘RHOC?’

Is Tamra Barney faking it for the cameras? According to a May 27 report by InTouch Weekly, via Radar Online, the reality star and mother of four has been creating phony story lines for The Real Housewives of Orange County.

“[Tamra Barney] says she’s found religion, but her ‘new leaf’ story line is completely fake.”

During the trailer for The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 10, Tamra Barney is seen getting baptized in the very first scene. However, just a few scenes later, she’s back in the thick of the drama, and, at one point, is seen running topless in a thong.

Would someone who’s turned over a “new leaf” and found faith in God be acting in such a way? It’s surely possible, but at the same time, it’s garnered Tamra Barney a slew of doubters — including her former co-star, Alexis Bellino. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Bellino received news of Tamra Barney’s baptism earlier this month during an event — and it took her by surprise. Speaking to Perez Hilton, Bellino expressed her shock in finding out about Tamra Barney’s baptism, but said she was hopeful that she had truly took the issue seriously.

“I cannot believe that, but more power to her. Soul saved. That’s what matters. Let’s just hope her actions stay with what a baptism really means.”

InTouch Weekly‘s source went on to claim Tamra Barney is convinced viewers of The Real Housewives of Orange County will be impressed with her alleged new ways, and let her start off on a new page.

“[Tamra Barney] thinks the audience is stupid and will believe whatever she says. It’s disgusting.”

During an interview with Real Mr. Housewife on May 11, Tamra Barney spoke out about what fans can expect from her during Season 10, claiming she’s a new woman this time around.

“I think they will see a softer side of me. I become a grandmother and take a spiritual journey in my life that I’m excited to share with everyone.”

“We have a new housewife Meghan Edmonds, and she is probably one of the coolest girls I’ve ever met,” Barney continued. “Also, we have a death to a birth and everything in between. The season is very raw with real life issues.”

Joining Tamra Barney on the upcoming 10th season of the Bravo reality show are Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow, Meghan King Edmonds, and Shannon Beador.
