Tamra Barney admitted in a recent blog post that the latest season of The Real Housewives of Orange County was her "worst year" on the show.
It seems that Bravo executives agree with that assessment.
The unlikely cause of the her termination? It seems producers believe the show had too much arguing and drama this season and they blame Tamra for constantly stirring the pot.
“Bravo is actively casting for someone who is a voice of reason,” says a production insider. “They want to replace [Tamra] who’s stirring up too much sh-t ... the entire cast is against her."
Fans love drama, of course, to a point. But the source adds that producers are worried that the constant arguing among the current cast has begun to alienate viewers:
“Everyone is stirring the pot too much, the source says. So they’re not necessarily looking for someone who’s a sex pot or out of control."
“Actually, just the opposite. They want someone who’s really successful, an entrepreneur or just someone who’s well respected among their peers.”
Wow. That is a rare feat, Tamra. When you get fired from a Bravo reality show for being too dramatic, you know it's time to see a therapist.
Just saying. You can watch the Real Housewives of Orange County online at TV Fanatic to relive every moment of Tamra's insanity this year.
