It so hard to know what to believe when it comes to Tamra Judge’s estranged relationship with her daughter Sidney Barney. For everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County, it’s possible to go for the narrative that has Tamra’s ex husband Simon Barney controlling Sidney’s opinions about Tamra. Then there are these other accusations that Tamra is actually a “monster mom.” Either way, the result is the same: Tamra hasn’t seen her daughter in years and she considers herself to be an “erased mom” who has participated in a documentary about erased family members.
I have to admit that I feel really awkward writing this one. This is obviously a very sensitive topic for everyone involved and it’s just legitimately tough to know what’s actually true as a total outsider who’s attempting to observe. Is Tamra’s participation in this documentary a last ditch effort to appeal to Sidney? Or is this just making their private family struggle way more public than it needs to be?
Reality Tea is ranking of every, single Housewife from every, single season from almost every Real Housewives franchise. You can find Part 1 of our rankings here. Now we finally return with Part 2 (aka the big ole mush in the middle)!
In Part 1 we mostly covered most Housewives who were either too crazy to be legit, or didn’t make much of an impact, or were just so miscast and off it was painful. Some of them were too nice, or too timid, or not rich enough, or too desperate. If she’s only a Housewife for a season, there’s usually a reason!
Unfortunately for the ladies, the cast members of Real Housewives don’t always have the best boyfriends and husbands. Sometimes that makes for good TV and other times it’s just genuinely sad to watch and hear about. Nevertheless, there are Real Housewives husbands and fathers that you would never want to date if you had the chance – at least in my opinion.
These dudes are the worst of the worst: from the cheaters to the jail birds to the fame hungry. These are not the kind of men that you would want to be with, but they managed to end up with reality TV’s finest (and some of them did make for better reality TV viewing).
I am aware that Vicki Gunvalson is great at selling insurance, but none of her attempts at “business ventures” ever seem to work out. I have no idea why she doesn’t stick to what she knows instead of thinking that she isn’t too polarizing to sell anything other than insurance. After the failed ventures that include diamonds, a wine venture, bacon flavored vodka brand and a suspicious cancer charity, Vicki announced that she is going to launch her own app.
Why? Can’t she just continue arguing with people on Real Housewives of Orange County and providing people with insurance with the occasional sponsored Instagram post in between? Apparently not. Vicki thinks that people want to turn to her for life advice on a daily basis.
It’s no secret that the Real Housewives love anything that could possibly make them look more youthful. I just figured they would go to the top doctors to get these procedures done. Although that does seem to be the case, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador decided to take the needle in their own hands during a recent trip to a plastic surgery office.
That cannot be legal, right? Hopefully they were just posing for the camera and not actually injecting each other with whatever was in the needles. I’m also wondering who took this photo. I’m hoping that Tamra had her arm stretched out for a selfie. Or the Bravo camera crew took it, perhaps.
Citing reasons that include a desire to spend more time with her family and a wish to pursue other career ventures, Heather says she reached a “tipping point” with RHOC, and the time was right to go. In an official statement, Heather wrote “These past five years have been an incredible journey and I’m so proud to have been a part of such an iconic piece of pop culture … However, at this point in my life, I have decided to go in another direction and do what’s best for my family and career.”
Multiple sources confirm Meghan will not return next season, although it’s not clear if she was fired, quit, or it was a mutual decision. After filming for season 11 wrapped, Meghan and Jim pretty much moved back to St. Louis, because Meghan wanted to be near family to raise her daughter Aspen.
While most of us have been stuck inside thanks to Winter weather, the Real Housewives have ditched that cold and snowy life to relax (and probably turn up) on vacation in some warmer climates. Luckily for them, some of the Real Housewives have escaped the drama-filled cast trips.
Unfortunately for me (as a super fan), the ladies are all taking individual trips. The queen of the vacation turn up Vicki Gunvalson has been partying it up in Puerto Vallarta with her boo Steve Lodge. Ramona Singer is enjoying herself in South Beach, which made me flash back to Ramona bragging, “I go to Miami like I brush my teeth. Miami is not really a special place.” And then there is my favorite self-proclaimed jet setter, Sonja Morgan, who is sharing pictures and videos of her trip to St. Maarten.
