So what is it like to join one of the most successful of the Housewives franchises? Radar Online sat down with Shannon Beador to find out about her eccentric beliefs and the ups and downs of filming with veteran Vicki Gunvalson, Heather "Fancy Pants" Dubrow and feisty Tamra Barney.
TamraBarney Judge and Eddie are working hard at CUT Fitness and after 8 months in business are breaking even. Good for them! She compares the venture to having a newborn and then mentions that Eddie is five-years-younger than her and the deep sexy voice (debatable) he uses to teach classes gets all the ladies' revved up. It makes Tamra jealous – and insecure about her age. Tamra says she's doing everything she can to look younger. We can tell….
With the premiere literally right around the corner, Tamra has been doing press for the show and sharing her opinions on co-stars past and present. Shocking, I know. Apparently her story line is going to revolve around opening CUT Fitness and talks of a baby with new husband Eddie Judge. I guess that's better than strip clubs, right?
The OGs of the Real Housewives line-up are back next week. The Real Housewives of Orange County has had many ups and downs, but last season the ladies thusly represented on the drama front and brought in big ratings!
Everyone's relationships were thrown in a blender as friendships fractured and reconnected. Tamretchen fell apart (like no one saw that coming) and Tamricki was restored to their rightful order as queen bitches. Businesses were opened, weddings were planned, the Dubrow marriage was strained, and Lauri Peterson staged a dramatic comeback!
The topsy-turvy season began with a brought back from the dead Alexis Bellino who had to go on Xanax to deal with Tamra Barney. Yes, she was so desperate to famewhore she needed psych drugs. While Alexis focused on relevance and opening a tramboppily boob-bouncing for Jesus trampoline park, Tamra opened C.U.T Fitness.
Raise your hand if you want to see more of Tamra Barney Judge! Anyone? Anyone at all? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Real Housewives of Orange County is planning an infiltration of your televisions, and she's not even keeping her take-over to the realm of reality television!
Tamra is going to be guest starring on USA's Royal Pains which returns this summer. No word on whether she'll be playing herself getting a little extra work done…but my guess is yes! The unfiltered Bravolebrity is also teasing about a potential spin-off of her CUT gym with husband Eddie Judge. Of course, this is speculation on my part, but isn't that the fun part?
Season 9 kicks off April 14th. Friendships are put to the test, says Bravo, when the "quirky yet fearless" Shannon Beador and "opinionated beauty queen" Lizzie Rovsek blast onto the scene with fresh attitudes and bold opinions. The line for the Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow pity party forms to the right, my friends. See ya on the left – I'm excited for new blood.
