Have you been dying to see a 45-year-old woman marry a very short 40-year-old man on TV? You're in luck. Tamra Barney of The Real Housewives of Orange County just confirmed that she and fiance Eddie Judge will have a wedding spinoff on Bravo. Joy. Tamra explains that she's excited to share the craziness of planning the big day with the fans who have watched her life play out on reality television for years.
Orly, Tamra? You're excited? That makes one of us.
Nothing against Tamra, I think she's pretty funny and I adore her deep-seeded anger problem, but it's just that the wedding spinoff is so played. Her new show will mark the FOURTH of its kind.
Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy had one, Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann had one, NeNe Leakes and Gregg Leakes' re-marrying show is launching this summer, and now Tamra's is slated to hit the airways.
The phrase been there, done that comes to mind. Plus, is anyone actually invested in Tamra and Eddie as a couple? Need I remind everyone of that horrifying bathtub scene?! With the roses? And the nakedness? Cringe.
Bethenny's spinoff worked because she's a hilariously neurotic mess; Kim's worked because she's a closeted redneck in a fancy wig; NeNe's will work because, klonk! bloop!, she's NeNe; but Tamra's? What does she bring to the table? A bunch of kids we've hardly seen and a start-up gym? No thanks.
And if all that wasn't enough, she and Eddie might have TWO weddings. Double the fun? I think not.
But hey, I guess things could've been worse. At least Gretchen and Slade didn't get a spinoff.
Are you looking forward to Tamra and Eddie's spinoff?
