LOS ANGEELS (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Are Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow leaving RHOC after this season? Tamra Barney has not been fired from RHOC, as previously reported on LALATE. But Tamra tells news that she almost quit RHOC after last season. Now LALATE can report that both Tamra and Heather are using a very similar final statement to end this season. While the remarks might sound like parting final words, LALATE can also report that housewives very typically use such remarks at season conclusions, only to return yet again. In this case, LALATE anticipates that the entire RHOC cast will return next season with a possible extra cast addition. And yes, everyone is a getting a big raise after a big season of ratings, LALATE can report.
Tamra Barney and Heather Dubrow ended this month’s remarks on BravoTV leaving many guessing about their future. Tamra tell news this week “I do not know what the future holds for me, but I am glad that I have been able to share my ups and downs with you throughout the years.” Heather in turn says much the same remark. “I don’t know what my future is with Housewives show but I am very grateful for all of the opportunities it’s presented to me and my family. I hope you have enjoyed getting to know us over the past three years and realize we are not defined by moment or a season.”
But don’t read too much into either. LALATE anticipates both stars will be back. The money is very good, and the women (despite how they appear on camera) really enjoy doing the show with all but one co-star. LALATE expects a salary rise across the board for all the women .
Tamra however admits that she almost did not sign on for another season. “I started the season at a very bad time in my life (something I have not spoken of publicly) and contemplated not returning to Season 9, now I wish I had taken a step back and dealt with my issues as needed.” Tamra issued an extensive apology to fans. “I know that this year was probably my worst year on RHOC and I apologize to my fans for letting them down.”
As to her appearance, Tamra says she was crying much of the season. “As I watch the Reunion I look physically exhausted and emotionally drained. My eyes and face were swollen all season from crying every night.”
