After confirming to Andy Cohen at the Real Housewives of Orange County season 13 reunion that Eddie had undergone seven heart surgeries in less than one year and will soon undergo at least two more to correct his atrial fibrillation, a source claims the reality star is feeling understandably anxious.
“Eddie will be having another surgery in the coming weeks to close up a hole that was left in his heart after his most recent procedure,” a source revealed to Radar Online on December 5.
“Tamra is scared to death that he is going to die,” the insider continued. “She has been fearing this all along and she is trying to stay strong, but it’s very hard. Just when she thinks that they fixed the problem, he needs another operation.”
Throughout Eddie’s ongoing health crisis, Tamra has been sharing regular updates and photos on her Instagram page. She’s even admitted to going through hardships with her faith in God due to Eddie’s sometimes dire state.
Months ago, Tamra opened up about the emotions she’s been dealing with as husband Eddie continues to face health challenges.
“I have to stay strong, but I’m super scared because I’m just afraid what if?” Tamra revealed to Us Weekly in October. “What if? What if he has a heart attack? He has a stroke? All these things. Like the other day, he wouldn’t wake up. His alarm was going off, and he was just laying there so peaceful. I’m like, ‘Eddie!’ And he was just laying there. I’m like, ‘Oh my god, he died!’ I’m like, ‘Eddie!’ Like that.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
