Tamra Barney is one of those reality-TV stars who is hard to like. She has almost no lines, a killer body and is planning a wedding to hottie Eddie Judge who, by the way, is five years younger than she is.
The Real Housewives of Orange County returns to Bravo tonight as Tamra Barney gets ready to walk down the aisle in opulent O.C. fashion. And, don't worry, the 45-year-old mom of four hasn't aged a day.
While promoting Cuca Fresca Cachaca, Tamra took some time to talk to iDesign about Botox, fillers and that annoying thing called exercise.
"I have been doing Botox for about 10 years now, and I love it!" Tamra admitted to iDesign. "I go to Terry Dubrow's [husband of fellow Housewife Heather] office a couple times a year to get my tune-up. I'm not a fan of fillers. I have done my lips before. But I'll never do it again."
That said, Tamra has done IPL Laser and Fraxel Laser Skin Treatments to keep her skin dewy and line-free.
"At 45, fine lines and wrinkles are going to happen," she said. "If you can do a non-invasive procedure [to combat them] why not? I'm 45, I'm not expecting to look like I'm 20. I'm just trying to look as good as I can."
It's not only Tamra's face that looks amazing. Tamra famously removed her breast implants last year after finding lumps in them and having a scare with cervical cancer. She embraced her new shape and even flashed her new breasts to Bravo's Andy Cohen on a memorable episode of Watch What Happens: Live!
Exercise has also made a difference in the way she looks and feels. Tamra recently launched CUT Fitness in California with her fiancé. "My workout is pretty consistent," Tamra said. "But as we all know, diet is probably 80 percent of what you're really going to look like."
"You can work out all you want but if you eat bad you're not going to see the results you would if you ate clean," Tamra said.
Tamra watches everything that goes into her mouth. "I hired a nutritionist who is educating me on healthy clean eating. It's not so much about a diet but just eating the right foods. For the longest time I was like, don't eat carbs or fats. But you need fat to burn fat. So I'm learning all of that with Cara Clark, my nutritionist."
Tamra and her fiancé are also trying to plan a wedding. Due to filming and their new fitness venture, event planning has taken a backseat to her other commitments. "It was impossible to squeeze it in," Tamra lamented.
"Our fitness studio took much longer to get open than we expected. There was no way we could have fit it all in."
Nevertheless Tamra is still planning a summer wedding. "Everything is on track, it's going to be this summer and it's going to be big. I just want everyone to have fun, most importantly. It's about sharing what is special to us with everyone else."
She even plans to wear three dresses! "I am currently working with Mark Zunino, who designs for Kleinfeld," she said. "We're in the planning stages right now, and I can't really say a whole lot about it."
Things haven't always been easy for Tamra. Last season found Tamra fighting with her longtime BFF Vicki Gunvalson. "We might argue, but we always makeup," Barney said about the original housewife. "Vicki has been a longtime friend and I value her friendship. You will see us take off where we left off in Season 7. Let's just leave it that. I don't want to give too much away!"
You can catch Tamra every week on The Real Housewives of Orange County at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
