Eddie Judge and Tamra Barney are dating!
Where are the Bravo cameras when you need them?!? On January 7 Simon Barney filed for divorce from his wife of eleven years Tamra Barney, one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Less than a month later Simon reportedly walked into the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas where he saw Tamra holding hands with his good friend Eddie Judge. From Radar Online:
“I walked in and I saw Tamra with a friend of mine, Eddie Judge,” Simon told RadarOnline.com. “I saw them holding hands and acting like a couple.
“As soon as Tamra saw me she let go of his hand and walked away.
“I went up to Eddie and asked him if he’s (bleeping) my wife. He didn’t say a word.
“I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed — the ultimate betrayal by a pal and my estranged wife.
“I started to feel weak and fell to my knees. The doorman helped me and by the time I had regained my composure they both left to the other side of the club.
“I left soon after.”
How perfect is that? The self-righteous and controlling drama queen husband swooning after seeing his ex-wife with a good friend at a hotel in Las Vegas! Simon just may be the biggest heterosexual male diva of all time! And what about all the financial issues these two were reportedly having? Oh, and didn’t they used to have young children? Were they were up in their room or perhaps shooting craps?
Tamra confirmed the hook-up, telling Radar:
“I started dating Eddie Judge last week.
“We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year.
“We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both we would dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later.
“I don’t know what the future holds with Eddie and only time will tell.”

It’s easy to be critical of the plastic blond housewives from Orange County, but no one can deny how quickly plastic can bounce back! (Gretchen only needed a few months to grieve the loss of Jeff, before moving on to the West Coast Conference’s all-time leading rebounder Slade Smiley.)
But, talking to Radar Online wasn’t enough for diva Simon, who (drunkenly?) took to his Facebook page to further draw attention to the betrayal:
Well. Wow. My wife told me she was los Angeles. I ran into her I las vegas with my friend eddie. Our mutual friend. I come to Find out they have been with each Other. I guess this has gone on Since December. Not only did she cheat with ex boyfriend. But Now with eddie. What a piece if s**t.
He later followed that with a slightly more sober post:
Sorry. I actually passed out at the club when I saw them together. Eddie Judge who is one of my FB friends with my wife on a secret Weekend together. She knew I was here. She told me she was in LA. She was at my friends club that she knew i was coming too. Eddie is a real nice friend. And my Ex wife….. The truth wi…ll come out now…I’ve been quiet and respectful.
He even changed his profile photo to one that included his wife and Eddie from more innocent times:
^ Eddie, Tamra and Simon
Eddie Judge has since deactivated his Facebook account, but Simon plows on…

Hugs me everytime he sees me.My family and me are devistated that he would stoop so low.There are plenty of women he could have gone after.MY WIFE.WOW!That is the lowest anyone could be in the world.Who needs enemies when you have friends like Eddie Judge
Tamra was short and succinct in her Facebook response:
Don’t listen to the crazy!
I’m with you Tamra – even if your rebound dude looks uber douchey! I’m already looking forward to Simon’s appearances next season!
