During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, viewers were shocked by Tamra Barney’s appearance. Appearing to squint her eyes as a result of fuller cheeks, Tamra eventually copped to trying fillers. Viewers weren’t a fan of Tamra’s attempt to look younger. And apparently Tamra’s new husband, Eddie Judge, isn’t a big fan either. In fact, rumor has it that Eddie has threatened to divorce Tamra if she doesn’t start laying off the plastic surgery.
Apparently Eddie feels that 46-year old Tamra is beginning to look different than the woman he married and he doesn’t like the blondes’ new look.
A source close to Eddie tells RadarOnline, “It’s absolutely ridiculous that Tamra has had so much Botox and cosmetic fillers work done to her face. She looks like a former shell of the beautiful lady that she used to be. Eddie just can’t understand her need to constantly go to the plastic surgeon.”
Tamra’s insistence on regular upgrades to her anti aging regimen have reportedly become a major source of contention for the newlyweds.
“And it’s become a major issue between them. Tamra does receive a discount on the procedures, but it’s still very expensive. More importantly, Eddie prefers the natural look, and just wishes Tamra would stop. Yet, she refuses,” the insider said.
While Tamra initially played coy about telling viewers and Andy Cohen whether or not she had done anything to change her appearance, it seems that Tamra may have had a little more than “a little work done” using fillers. The reason her eyes look different is because she may have had an upper eyelid lift as well.
“It looks like Tamra has had her cheeks augmented, most likely with a liquid volumizer or filler,” Dr. Norman Rowe told RadarOnline, although he hasn’t treated the reality star. “Not only do her cheeks appear fuller, but her nasolabial crease [wrinkle on either side of the nose] is diminished. This is a sign of a a filler having been used. Also her upper eyelids appear to have a deeper inset. I believe she has had an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift). This involves removing skin and fat from the upper eyelid to produce a more rejuvenated appearance.”
And while Eddie isn’t happy about his wife’s constant plastic surgery efforts, it seems that there is other trouble in paradise as well. Although Eddie is always invited to the season reunion, he opted not to attend the RHOC season nine reunion taping with the other husbands, because he is said to be fed up with all the drama around his wife. Eddie even declined after he was offered extra money from the Bravo producers to make an appearance.
Although Tamra is reportedly upset about Eddie’s refusal to take part in the reunion and his lack of support for her plastic surgery, it seems that the RHOC star isn’t giving up on the show or her cosmetic procedures.
The source says, “Tamra refuses to give up the Botox and fillers. She says it’s absolutely necessary because of her television career. In her opinion, Eddie doesn’t understand the pressure she feels to maintain a perfect physical presence.”
