Will longtime Bravo mainstay Tamra Barney be fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County after the current ninth season comes to a close?
Three month ago, it would have seemed like a crazy possibility to even throw out (maybe it still is), but she keeps falling out of favor with each passing week.
If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County regularly, you know that Barney - or Tamra Judge, as she goes by now - may be skating on thin ice.
Not because she's boring and doesn't bring storylines, a la Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She brings plenty.
According to insiders, Tamra should be worried because she's reaching the point where no one else wants to open up to her or involve her in their lives.
That, more than anything, is the kiss of death on Bravo.
While Heather and Terry Dubrow are likely losing their minds at this point in the filming process, she's become a lightning rod and polarizing figure.
They should be back, along with lifer Vicki Gunvalson and newcomers Shannon and David Beador, who bring a number of vintage Bravo qualities to the table.
Shannon has proven to be a good listener - people confide in her - and David loves to drink on the show, making him a go-to for camera-loving behavior.
Add in the will-they-or-won't-they-divorce drama and the Beadors are a safe bet to return. Tamra Barney, meanwhile, may end up ostracized from the group.
Just speculation? Absolutely, but keep your eye on it.
