Tamra Barney Spin-off Extends Orange County's Real Housewives of Orange County Nightmare

The long Real Housewives of Orange County nightmare not only continues, but it is also expanding, as Tamra Barney is getting her own Bravo spin-off.

The untitled, unreal reality show will be the fourth in the Housewives' franchise surrounding a cast member getting married, following Bethenny Frankel's Bethenny Getting Married?, Kim Zolciak's Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding and NeNe Leakes' I Dream of NeNe, which has not yet polluted cable television.

Barney is set to enter her third marriage after becoming engaged to Eddie Judge last season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, which is currently in its eighth season and shows no signs of going away. It was the first of Bravo's Housewives' franchise.

There had been rumors of a spin-off for months, but it was announced by Bravo and confirmed by Barney via Twitter Thursday. In fact, she is soliciting titles for the show from her followers and asking what they think of her ideas: Sweating 4 the Wedding, Tamra & Eddie Are Finally Ready and Third Time's a Charm.

The current season has included the couple's wedding planning and Barney's bachelorette party in Mexico. Of course, she has also extended her feud this season with Alexis Bellino, whom Barney previously nicknamed "Jesus Jugs" due to that hot mess' born-again Christianity and manufactured rack.
