Tamra, in turn, is sharing her amazing workout tips with news this month. “Body Pump has transformed my body so much that I have become a certified Pump trainer. We offer this class at my studio @cutfitoc . If your not able to find a Body pump class at your local gym, I am happy to say they NOW make a home Pump DVD (bar and weights included) that you can buy from Beach body. I swear you wont be disappointed!”
Meantime, Gretchen Rossi tells OK Magazine that she and Slade Smiley want to have a baby. “We’re working really hard right now to have a baby. He actually has a vasectomy so he has to get a reversal and we have to kind of figure that all out.”

While she may not be a Bravo full housewife, LALATE has been reporting that she is allegedly filming with the women, and will be featured in Tamra’s wedding preparation scenes.
