Cheers are in order for Tamra Judge! The Real Housewives of Orange County’s star is now a grandmother…or a nana…or a grandma, or whatever title she chooses to be called. I am betting it will be something hip and young like, “NotNana” or “BigSis,” right?
Tamra’s son Ryan Vieth and his wife Sarah welcomed daughter Ava yesterday morning after a scary pregnancy. Almost a month ago, at thirty-four weeks pregnant, Sarah began having contractions and was admitted to the hospital. Her doctors gave her medicine to stop the labor and administered a steroid shot to help develop Ava’s lungs in the event of a premature birth. Thankfully, Ava managed to stay put in the womb for a few more weeks and was born weighing a healthy 7 pounds and and 14 ounces, measuring nineteen and half inches in length.
Our condolences go out to Vicki Gunvalson who just announced that her mother passed away last night.
Vicki’s charming (and blunt) mama was often seen on Real Housewives Of Orange County giving her daughter some major side-eye and dispensing advice in a fabulous and fun way. She lived in Illinois, where Vicki was from, and they were very close.
Vicki had recently returned from an insurance conference with her sister when she learned the news. Prior to that she had spent time in Puerto Vallarta with her brother. It’s unknown if Vicki’s mother was suffering from an illness or the passing was sudden.
Real Housewives Of Orange County has just started filming and there are surprises on the horizon! Rumors have been stirring for a while that Bravo is looking to re-introduce former Housewives as ‘friends’ this season, and Jeana Keough just confirmed that she is indeed filming!
“Thinking about doing a little work on the OC housewives this season, what do you think?” Jeana announced on twitter earlier this week. But last night Jeana confirmed she was participating in the show and filmed with Vicki Gunvalson, her neighbor and former close friend!
Bravo announced this afternoon the return of several of our favorite reality shows – some with premiere dates and some with just a greenlight for a new season, but no date just yet.
Among the returning shows: Shahs of Sunset will come back for their fourth season on March 2nd, after getting pushed off of their initial premiere date last October, while Newlyweds: The First Year returns with four new couples on March 10th. Million Dollar Listing New York is back in action on April 8th and Southern Charm season 2 will kick off on March 9th.
Flipping Out (season 8) and The Real Housewives of Orange County (season 10) are a go, but no official date has been given just yet. Check out the listings below.
The reality star is expecting her first grandchild in the spring. Tamra’s son Ryan and wife Sarah Vieth are ready to welcome a baby girl named Ava…but not quite yet! Sarah is thirty-four weeks along in her pregnancy, and last week she went into preterm labor. Thankfully, Sarah and the baby are fine, but the family is on pins and needles that Ava won’t be making an early appearance.

Shannon rocked the vote for RHOC star with more than 36% of the votes! A few notable write-ins: Lydia McLaughlin, Jeana Keough, the pretend baby, and “the chip that sits atop the shoulders of every one of these women.”
See the Runners Up in order of votes received below!
Lydia, who was way too down to earth and classy for reality TV via Bravo, may have parted ways with the Real Housewives of Orange County, but we didn’t part ways with Lydia’s social media accounts. She is forever sharing pictures of her beautiful family – husband Doug McLaughlin, sons Stirling, Maverick, and baby Roman, and mom Judy Stirling – and we can’t get enough. Much to our delight, Lydia shared a bunch of photos of her family enjoying Christmas.
