The stars of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Orange County are no strangers to plastic surgery, constantly getting nicks and tucks for the camera. Recently, cast member Tamra Barney made the difficult decision to remove her breast implants, but she only revealed why she did on The Dr. Oz show.
40-something year old Tamra Barney has been fighting her breast implants since she first appeared on the show. She first downsized her breast implants after breast augmentation left her with unusually large breasts. On the new season, Tamra took her downsize a step further by eliminating her breast implants entirely, saying she wanted to be all real.
But it turns out that there was more to Tamra’s breast implant removal than was revealed on her show. Part of her reason for removing the implants was being diagnosed with cervical cancer, which she revealed on The Dr. Oz show.
“I have a long list of reasons why I had them removed,” Barney says in a clip of the episode. “Starting with they always felt too big for my body.”
But, she continues, there was something more serious than her aesthetic reasons. “I had a little health scare,” Barney says. “I was going through this divorce. I go to the doctor and I have lumps in my breasts and I had cervical cancer that had to be removed.”
No word on whether Tamra has also given up Botox and fillers, but it seems very unlikely. Makemeheal.com wishes Tamra congratulations on her engagement to boyfriend Eddie Judge.
