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.’"


Barney says she was forced to stay home because her daughter was sick. She goes on to defend Shannon Beador, who apparently also wasn’t feeling well on the night of the soiree:

"Shannon told me she was too sick and was told by producers that she had to go. I told her that was not right and she needed to be strong with them. Me and Shannon are friendly, even though they make it out that we are not."

This is not the first time that RHOC producers have been accused of fabricating drama. Barney’s wife, Eddie Judge, says there’s no truth to the rumor that Tamra wants to have another baby, and claims "it’s all a storyline for the show."
