Never to part! Tamra Barney and Eddie Judge kept tabs on each other during their joint bachelorette and bachelor parties in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 18. Us Weekly got all the details on The Real Housewives of Orange County stars’ weekend celebration, which included partying poolside at The Palazzo’s Azure Luxury Pool, dining at LAVO, gambling at the Palms and ending the festivities at Sapphire strip club.
The engaged couple kicked off their pre-wedding parties by soaking up the sun and sipping on Cuca Fresca Caipirinhas with their pals at The Palazzo. Barney, 45, wore a gold Victoria’s Secret cover-up over a black bikini, while Judge, 40, showed off his muscles by going shirtless in black trunks. A source tells Us that Judge jokingly wrapped chains around his biceps and had “Tamra’s Toy” printed on the back of his tight shorts. He also used a shirt and towel to “fill out his bathing suit.”
The bride and groom-to-be were joined by their Real Housewives of Orange County costars Heather and Terry Dubrow and Chelsea Lately comedian Heather McDonald. The group snacked on Margerita Pizza, Portobello Pizza, Chinois Chicken Salad, Grilled Prime Burger and more treats by Wolfgang Puck. (The rest of the couple’s Bravo costars — Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, Vicki Gunvalson and Lydia McLaughlin — were noticeably missing.)
The bachelorette/bachelor festivities later moved to LAVO’s Terrace to enjoy signature dishes of Kobe Meatball, Roasted Chilean Sea Bass and more before heading into the nightclub, an insider tells Us. The couple’s upcoming nuptials were then celebrated with champagne and cake.
Barney, wearing a tiara, and the rest of the bachelorette crew next headed to the Palms resort & casino to do a little gambling. A source tells Us the ladies played craps and “were screaming a lot” in excitement. But they quickly wrapped up the game to join Judge and his bachelor party at Sapphire strip club to end the night.
Barney, who became engaged to Judge in February, told Us earlier in May that she’s thinking about having two weddings. “We’re thinking about maybe going to Mexico with the kids and [our parents]. . . and then coming home and having a big fabulous wedding for hundreds of people,” the twice-divorced reality star said.
But she doesn’t want it to be too “over-the-top.” “Me and Eddie are very simple people and we don’t need all the frills and fancy, so I’m hoping it’s going to stay small and intimate with a lot of love,” she explained. “That’s all I want — a lot of love.”
