While chatting with Andy Cohen on Sunday, Real Housewife Tamra Barney reveled that she was slipped a roofie during a recent outing. In case you aren’t familiar, a ‘roofie’ is the drug Rohypnol, most commonly used by predators as a date rape drug.
Real Housewife of NYC, Ramona Singer recently did an interview where she went into a bit more detail regarding the incident. Apparently there were a group of the ladies from the Bravo reality series from both Orange County and New York, including Vicki Gunvalson, Tamara Barney, and Peggy Tanous, who got together with Ramona at a bar in New York City:
“So many fans came over and said ‘we love you guys,’” then a gentleman came over, offering them drinks. “He sat next to Tamra and Peggy and said, ‘I have a special drink for you two ladies.’ Obviously he was watching them and decided to buy them drinks. Tamra drank only part of her drink, but Peggy drank all of it, poor thing. We all left as they finished their drinks and they got back to their hotel 20 minutes later and felt the effects. Thankfully, Vicki was there because they almost had to go to the hospital. I think it’s a lesson for everyone to learn — Never take a drink from a stranger. Thank god it wasn’t more serious.”
She goes on to say that they didn’t get the man’s name or information, or they would have pursued legal action. Be careful out there ladies! Never accept a drink you didn’t see get made!
