Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County will forever be known as the season when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted. Vicki worked over-time to try and win her orange back. After Vicki’s tantrum at the reunion, I would say that it isn’t likely.
At the same time, another RHOC cast member was desperately trying to save her full-time position. Tamra Judge, who joined the cast in Season 3, was busy stirring up trouble among her co-stars. She helped Vicki bring out the sex train rumor about Kelly Dodd. Tamra also spent a lot of time making out with newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Tamra was all over the media commenting about anything to stay relevant.
Of course, one of Tamra’s most memorable moments from the season occurred during Vicki and Steve Lodge’s engagement party. A drunken Tamra was fuming because Kelly involved herself in the $ 1 million dollar lawsuit that Jim Bellino filed against Tamra and Shannon Beador. So naturally Tamra picked a fight with Gina Kirschenheiter. Then Tamra ran away crying, taking cover in a bush. Gina finally coaxed Tamra out of the shrubbery. Really, Tamra?
But did Tamra lose her job as a Housewife? Rumors increased because Tamra supposedly had #RHOC in her Twitter and Instagram bios. There are screenshots posted on Instagram that show Tamra’s bios with no mention of RHOC. According to HollywoodLife, after the orange emoji disappeared, some fans noticed the change. The fans posted comments on a photo of supplements that Tamra posted on Instagram January 6. (The grammar is a bit rough in these posts.) One fan wrote, “There’s speculation that you’re leaving the housewives bc apparently you removed it from your insta bio..hope this isn’t true, love you on the show!” Another asked, “Where’d the orange go?”
Tamra tried to shut down the rumors by responding, “People look too deeply into things.” That may be true, but Tamra isn’t exactly denying that she was fired from the show. And Tamra is usually very vocal about everything.
HollywoodLife reported that Andy Cohen said that changes were coming to RHOC during an interview on Sirius XM’s Jeff Lewis Live. On December 17, Andy revealed, “The casting for next season is some of the best casting we’ve had. I have not been this excited about casting in a long time.” Those words are enough to cause Tamra to have another meltdown in some shrubs.

“Andy’s comments made them all nervous and they were told a while ago a cast shake-up was coming. All of the ladies [of ‘RHOC’] are saying they’re confident they’re coming back, but nobody knows for certain,” a source shared with HollywoodLife. “They will be notified in a few weeks, but nobody knows who’s in and who’s out quite yet.”
None of the Orange County ladies wants to leave the show. “Nobody wants to go anywhere, and the ladies would find a way to film together if they had to. Vicki wants to be full-time again very, very badly but she doesn’t want Kelly on, neither do Tamra or Shannon,” a source told HollywoodLife at the end of December. “They all love doing the show.”
