‘Real Housewives of Orange County’: Tamra Barney, Eddie Judge marry

Tamra BarneyMrs. Carter: Tamra Barney has officially earned the “wife” part of her title.

On Saturday, the star of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” officially married her boyfriend of the last three years in Eddie Judge on a California beach. This is the third marriage for Barney, who has four children from prior relationships. This ceremony was surely a memorable one for her and her groom (who proposed to her on the flagship Bravo series), but the two also filmed everything leading up to this event for a miniseries entitled “Tamra’s O.C. Wedding,” which will premiere on the network a little later this year.

In a statement to Us Weekly, here is what Barney had to say about the big news:

“I am so lucky to be sharing my life with Eddie … I have never been so in love! This is the beginning of the best part of my life.”

Since “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is a show that very much loves to celebrate the world of glamour, we do feel a certain level of responsibility to tell you about all of the glamorous things that did end up taking place in association with this event. Even though Tamra had one (disastrous) bachelorette party in Mexico this season on the show with her co-stars, she also had a joint event with Eddie in Las Vegas last month. She wore three separate gowns during her wedding day, which is quite lavish, but if you’ve got the money why not doing it up big?

From a publicity standpoint, Tamra definitely ran into a bit of bad luck here, given that Kim Kardashian ended up unexpectedly giving birth to her baby girl a month early after falling ill.
