One person was involved in just about every dramatic moment on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14. Tamra Judge–take a bow! Whether she was stirring up trouble behind the scenes or confronting people to their faces, Tamra was working hard to keep her orange. She helped the recently demoted Vicki Gunvalson spread sex train rumors about co-star Kelly Dodd.
Tamra talked viciously about Shannon Beador behind Shannon’s back. During Vicki and Steve Lodge’s engagement party, which was the RHOC season finale, Tamra got very drunk. Again. She ended up hiding in some shrubs during the party, having a hysterical fit because Kelly tried to involve herself in Jim Bellino’s lawsuit against Tamra. Jim Bellino, RHOC alum Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband, is suing Tamra for $1 million dollars. Shannon was later dismissed from the lawsuit. Tamra is drowning in legal fees. Gina Kirschenheiter had the unenviable task of talking Tamra out of the bushes at the end of the party.
Fans were freaking out when a screenshot of Tamra’s social media bios did not mention the reality show. A post on irealhousewives said, “Fans speculate that #TamraJudge may not return to The Real Housewives of Orange County after she removed “RHOC” from her social media bios… #RHOC #iRealHousewives.”
When Tamra posted a photo of supplements to her Instagram on January 6, a fan noticed that the tell-tale Housewife symbol, the orange, was missing from Tamra’s profile. According to HollywoodLife, a fan asked, “Where’d the orange go?” Another one asked, “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!” What was Tamra’s response? “People look too deeply into things,” she replied.

But is Tamra sending her RHOC fans some good news with an emoji? According to HollywoodLife, Tamra took to Instagram on January 19 to show off some pictures of herself and her husband, Eddie Judge, at an event in Anaheim, California. And it was back! Lo and behold–that all-important orange was back on her profile.
Andy Cohen confirmed that there were some cast changes on the way during an interview on Sirius XM’s Jeff Lewis Live. On December 17, Andy shared, “The casting for next season is some of the best castings we’ve had. I have not been this excited about casting in a long time,” Andy remarked. So, great news for Andy, but not so great news for some of the Orange County Housewives.
Of course, the RHOC cast is anxious. “Andy’s comments made them all nervous and they were told awhile 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 told HollywoodLife at the end of December.
Rumors of who is in, and who is out< have been swirling around since the finale. Radar Online ran with a story, but Andy shot down the report. “Why is anyone believing Radar Online? No contracts have even gone out,” Andy tweeted.
So, is the reappearance of Tamra’s orange on social media a confirmation that she is coming back? Or is it just some more pot-stirring to keep her name out there? I guess we need to wait and see.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK THAT TAMRA IS HINTING THAT SHE WILL BE BACK? WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE COME BACK ON RHOC?
