The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is denying reports that she died yesterday in a jet ski crash “while on a personal vacation in Turks and Caicos.”
The report surfaced on the Global Associated News web site and stated:
Actress Tamara Barney died while on a personal vacation in Turks and Caicos early this morning from injuries sustained in a Jet-Ski accident – November 9, 2011
Preliminary reports from Turks and Caicos Police officials indicate that the actress struck a concrete boat slip in a marina on Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Tamara Barney was the only passenger on the personal watercraft at the time of the incident. Specific details are not yet available.
The accident occurred at approximately 8:45 a.m. (UTC/GMT -4 hours).
Additional details and information will be forthcoming.
And here’s a screen cap of the post (in case it gets taken down):
Tamra addressed the report on her Facebook page with these posts over the last 24 hours:
For those of you that have been asking…..I am very much alive!
I guess I better call my mom before she starts freaking out…she is one of those that believes every thing she reads…lol
Good morning. I had a wonderful night sleep after yesterdays false tragic death reports. What a stressful day….ended up with a migraine ! Even though it was obviously a rumor I had to spend the whole day calling friends and family that were actually crying, then had to explain it to my 3 young kids in case someone asks them at school today. I think this is perfect example of tabloids going way to far?
Hmmmm… I dunno. It’s hard to tell from just her written words, but I think Tamra might be lying. These reality stars will do anything for more attention! I’m hoping she will do an interview to address the rumors – I think I could get a better read on whether or not she’s telling the truth if I could actually see her body language while she’s talking.
What do you think? Is Tamra Barney telling the truth?
(All joking aside – I’ve always been a fan of Tamra’s and of course it’s great to hear she’s still takin’ the kids to school, lookin’ fab, and pitchin’ that Barney woo towards the Judgester!)
