Whether you love her, or love to hate her, there's no denying that The Real Housewives of Orange County's Tamra Barney (Judge) can be a pretty funny lady.

She's sarcastic. She's bawdy. She's downright bitchy and out of control sometimes. And she's also not afraid to poke fun at herself when the moment calls for it.

Whatever ones' personal feelings about the soon-to-be-grandmother may be, there's no denying that she gives some of the best one-liners in the OC.

With rumors swirling that Bravo is firing Tamra Barney because of her erratic behavior, we present 21 of the blonde bombshell's classic quotes, in GIF form.

Because there's no better way to experience Tamra (except to watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, of course) than on endless loop:

Why would you trust a chick ...
... with boobs bigger than her brain?

Lizzie Rovsek and Tamra Barney are in the midst of an epic feud that extends beyond what fans saw on The Real Housewives of Orange County Monday.

After Barney inadvertently (or intentionally) blasted Rovsek's phone number to the world in the midst of their ongoing beef, she issued an apology.

One which Lizzie will not be accepting.

Amid reports that Bravo fired Tamra Barney from The Real Housewives of Orange County, she's been hitting back at what she feels is unflattering editing.

Tamra claims that she didn't flake on a party for Lizzie (Rovsek is also being fired from the show, reports say), but rather had to miss it because her daughter was sick.

Barney already blasted Bravo for this, but when she took to social media to share a text that proved Rovsek was creating drama, she included her co-star’s digits.

“It was never my intention to expose Lizzie’s phone number and it was deleted in seconds after I realized her number was attached,” explains Tamra.

Days after the news that recent on- and off-set drama got Tamra Barney fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County, another cast member may follow.

Lizzie Rovsek is also being axed, according to insiders, but not because producers have had it with her diva behavior, as is the case with Tamra.

In Lizzie's case, she simply "didn’t bring anything to the show, and was super boring," according to insiders, and that will likely be her undoing.

“Lizzie isn’t going to be asked back,” a show insider tells Radar, although “the other newcomer, Shannon Beador, will definitely be getting an invite [back]!”

“Fans love Shannon because she is a bit of an airhead, likes to drink and party, and is a hot mess,” the insider explained. “She doesn’t care what others think."

"Producers want to cast women with similar personality traits,” the source dished, and that apparently does not include Lizzie Rovsek or equivalents.

On a recent episode, the only co-star to show up to the former beauty queen's party was Vicki Gunvalson, who complained about being stuck with her.

Never a good sign.

Tamra Barney sealed her fate on The Real Housewives of Orange County after going on a epic rant against Bravo this week, according to a new report.

As a result, insiders say she will not be back for the show's 10th season.

“The network has had it with Tamra’s ego and diva behavior. She sealed her fate by publicly stating that Bravo edited scenes to make her look bad,” a source said.

“This is a very big no-no, and Tamra’s contract won’t be picked up."

Tamra is DONE

"The fact that she has ongoing legal issues with ex-husband and really doesn’t have anything that interesting going on in her life made it a very easy decision.”

Ouch. Earlier this week, Tamra Barney slammed Bravo for editing scenes to create fake drama, specifically making it look like she flaked on Lizzie Rovsek’s party.

For her part, Lizzie Rovsek says that Tamra is the real liar here.

Yesterday, Tamra Barney attempted to save face with The Real Housewives of Orange County fans by writing a lengthy Facebook post defending her actions in the previous night's episode.

Essentially, Tamra claimed producers on the show convinced her to ditch Lizzie Rovsek's birthday party at the last minute without providing any details.

Barney says her daughter was ill and she'd intended to give Lizzie plenty of advance notice, but Bravo wanted the drama of a last-minute flake-out.

Today, Radar Online has obtained texts sent from Lizzie to Tamra revealing that Rovsek thinks Barney skipped the celebration because she felt like it.

Worse, Tamra stands accused of convincing fellow cast member Vicki Gunvalson to fake a yeast infection in order to giver her an excuse to stay home.

Last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County featured Tamra Barney revealing her bedroom "freak factor," and flaking out on a party thrown for Lizzie Rosvek's 34th birthday.

Barney was apparently stunned when she saw the drama play out on Bravo last night, and while she's not denying that she enjoys experimenting with various orifices, she is claiming that the scene in which she bails on Lizzie's birthday - seemingly for no reason - was completely staged by producers.

Like the rest of the ladies, Tamra maintains a blog on Bravo's website, but the network declined to post an entry that the grandmother-to-be posted this morning, so she ranted on Facebook instead:

"Here are a few facts that I am sure Bravo will take out of my blog," Barney wrote. "They waited until we were up in the limo to let Lizzie know [I was skipping her party]. They had her call me and say, 'How rude that you didn't call me.'"

Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge have been mulling the possibility of parenthood on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but this is all bogus, an insider says.

The spouses are wild, sexual freaks, however.

Eddie and Tamra Judge

Despite an ongoing storyline on the Bravo show about Tamra and Eddie Judge considering having a baby of their own, this was just for the cameras.

The soon-to-be-grandma, 46, “doesn’t want another baby, no way,” an insider said. “It’s all for a storyline for the show. It’s the last thing that she wants."

Tamra is fighting ex-husband Simon Barney in court for custody of their three minor children, while her adult son Ryan Vieth is expecting his first child.

That's more than enough for Mrs. Judge.

“Even if Tamra could have kids," says the source, "which she can’t, because she had her tubes tied several years ago, Eddie doesn’t want that responsibility.”

So not only do they not want a baby, they couldn't biologically even if they did. When Tamra pitched this storyline, sources say Eddie rolled his eyes:

Monday night on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 9 Episode 15, Shannon Beador was once again the cast member on everybody's mind.

Is she just trying to fit in but being ostracized by women trying to take the Beadors down? Or is she quietly meddling and then playing the victim?

As you'll see if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, Heather threw a Valentine’s Day party in this episode, while it's Lizzie's birthday.

Vicki and Brooks couldn't make it to Heather's, while Vicki was the only cast member to show for Lizzie's party after both Shannon and Tamra flaked.

Lizzie says she has a lot of fun with Tamra but Vicki warns her as Lizzie, Christian, Vicki and Brooks actually seem to bond well during their night out.

At least there's one drama-free pair on the show!

Tamra and Heather talk about how the former is hating her own business since she never had a honeymoon and all Eddie does is stress over money.

Heather, meanwhile, laments that she can’t get Terry to take time out for an anniversary trip. The ladies debate taking a trip together, sans guys.

Could The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney's new marriage to Eddie Judge be on the verge of unraveling after just one year?

According to reports - and corroborated by what we've seen when we watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online - the couple is struggling of late.

Insiders say that because he is sick of the constant drama and cat fights between the ladies, Eddie didn't attend the show's recently-taped reunion.

“Eddie was invited to go to the reunion, but refused,” a source said.

And needless to say, "Tamra was extremely upset about this.”

For Eddie, friends say, there was nothing to gain by going.

Unlike the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion fight, no weaves were pulled and no arrests were made when The Real Housewives of Orange County reconvened.

Last week's reunion show taping wasn't drama-free by any means, though, as the women of SoCal brought with them insults, tears and apologies galore.

The one-woman epicenter of tension? Tamra Barney.

The reunion was “full of emotion, and it was all aimed at Tamra,” an insider revealed, noting, “Heather Dubrow actually apologized to Shannon Beador.

In return, both of those ladies "took their anger out on Tamra, accusing her of stirring up drama and being a disloyal friend who spreads gossip.”

The enemy of my enemy is my friend? Or something?

They weren't alone, either: “Vicki Gunvalson was also very mad at Tamra for betraying her trust, and continuing her vendetta against [Brooks Ayers]."

But it was Shannon Beador who really went off on Tamra, according to insiders, for essentially "trying to make her look like a bad wife and mom.”

That will typically not endear you to a person, it's true.
