Tamra Barney: Real Housewife

Filed under: Celeb Parents

Tamra Barney is a former stay-at-home mom and real estate agent from Orange County, Calif., who gained fame starring on the Bravo reality show "The Real Housewives of Orange County."

Tamra and her husband, Simon Barney, have four children : Ryan, Sidney, Spencer and Sophia. Tamra Barney joined "The Real Housewives of Orange County" in season three.

As a member of the reality show, Barney quickly made a mane for herself because of her outspoken ways. Early on, Barney acknowledged that her mouth gets her into trouble.

Throughout the show, she has also proudly proclaimed that she's the "hottest housewife in Orange County." During the filming, viewers see how much time and money she pours into her appearance.

In August 2009, Tamra Barney's home in Ladera Ranch, Calif., was listed as a pre-foreclosure short sale at an asking price of $1,149,000 -- several hundred thousand dollars less than what she bought it for.

The foreclosure only increased the gossip that had been growing for some time on the web. Among the most popular rumors are that the financial trouble that has strained the Barneys have endured has strained their relationship. Some believe that they are headed for divorce ala Jon and Kate Gosselin, another famous reality show couple.

In addition to starring on "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Barney works as a part-time real estate agent. She also launched a makeup line with her plastic surgeon, Dr. Ambe.
