After coming from a bitter and much publicized break up less than a month ago, The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney admits that she's dating again. As if the reality TV starlet's quick jump into the dating pool didn't already raise a few eyebrows, she reveals that she's going out with a friend of her estranged husband Simon!
"I started dating Eddie Judge last week. We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year," Tamra told RadarOnline
. "We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both we would dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later."
Now everything makes more sense. Simon, who filed for divorce to dissolve his 11-year-marriage to the Real Housewives
star early in January, has accused Tamra of "committing acts of disloyalty and infidelity." Tamra, on the other hand, has denied Simon's claims. The odd thing, though, is that both Simon and Tamra were referring to issues regarding Tamra's ex-boyfriend.
Still, going out with your ex's friend shortly after breaking up is not something to be happy about. Simon even calls it "the ultimate act of betrayal" when he learned about the relationship by arriving at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday night and seeing Simon and Tamra there together while he was under the impression she was back in Los Angeles.
"I walked in and I saw Tamra with a friend of mine, Eddie Judge. I saw them holding hands and acting like a couple," Simon told RadarOnline. "As soon as Tamra saw me she let go of his hand and walked away. I went up to Eddie and asked him if he's [bleeping] my wife. He didn't say a word. I couldn't believe what I had just witnessed."
