“The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Barney has been on the show for quite some time, and it sounds like she has shared lots of things with fans, including divorcing Simon Barney, getting married to Eddie Judge and even starting her own business, CUT Fitness. But it sounds like Bravo isn't impressed enough. According to a new Radar Online report published on June 5, “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Barney is not getting her own spin-off show.

She did get a short spin-off to cover her wedding to Eddie Judge, but it sounds like it was far from the ratings that other spin-off shows have gotten. Apparently, viewers have heard rumours that she would be getting her own spin-off show, especially since she is in a bitter feud with her ex-husband, Simon. Plus, Vicki Gunvalson was also in the running for a spin-off show.

Often, Andy Cohen will sit down with his assistant in short videos and answer questions regarding the Bravo stars. And this week, it was all about Tamra's supposed spin-off show. “A lot of housewives — almost all have asked me for spinoffs and I always say, ‘You should be so happy to be on this ensemble show. You get paid so well. You all can kind of fall back on each other or rely on each other,’” he said. And when it comes to Tamra, the answer regarding her own show is “No.”

“Someone needs to be going through a serious life transition that will kind of take them out of it. They have to be able to hold their own for an hour — or a half hour. It’s a lot of time,” he added, saying that he is not the person who makes the decisions about the spin-off shows. Even though Tamra is going through something serious, the question remains whether she has enough going on to give her a show.

Plus, she does take lots of time on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” as she does create plenty of drama. It may be a good decision to give her a paycheck for “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and avoid giving her a spin-off. Do you think fame has gone to her head?
