Will There Be a Big Latin Wedding on Real Housewives of Orange County?

Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney told RadarOnline she hopes to walk down the aisle with Eddie Judge, her younger boyfriend of a little over a year. And, contrary to popular belief, he is not friends with her ex-husband, Simon.

“We’ve talked about marriage and we want to get married,” said the 42-year-old Barney of her younger man, whom she's described as a "HOT Latin lover." "I have never said the term 'soul mate' before," she said, "but we are!"

“We finish each other’s sentences," she adds. "I’m not the easiest person in the world and he gets me, nor does he judge. He simply says, ‘that’s my girl.’”

Barney, who has slowly started to introduce her four kids — Ryan, Sidney, Spencer and Sophia — to Judge, says her kids are the only thing keeping her from rushing to the altar. 

“Within the next year we’ll be married,” Tamra said. "It’s all about timing right now and the kids play a huge part. If it weren’t for the kids, we’d be married right now... but we’re happy as can be; it’s happily ever after!”
