It was no secret that Bravo was planning to spice things up on Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to a part-time role on Season 14, and ultimately
was supposedly fired chose to leave the show when she didn’t regain her full-time status.
But she wasn’t the only long-time RHOC cast member to jump ship. One day after Vicki’s announcement, Tamra Judge told the world that she was ditching the show. Tamra decided not to accept the paltry 3 episode deal she was offered to tie up her storyline. Wait–Tamra had a storyline?
Shortly thereafter, Tamra changed her mind. The Blast reported that when Tamra was a guest on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live, she revealed that Bravo’s Andy Cohen told her that she will be filming for Season 15. We don’t know whether she will be clutching an orange in victory, or returning as a lowly Friend of the Housewives. Tamra is also dealing with a serious health issue in her family, as her ex-husband, Simon Barney, was recently diagnosed with stage 3 throat cancer.
That left Shannon Beador as the only confirmed full-time Tres Amigas left on RHOC. Shannon had major issues with Kelly Dodd last season after Kelly struck a metal bowl on Shannon’s head with a mallet. Who will Shannon whoop it up with now that Vicki and Tamra are gone?

The answer is, shockingly, Kelly. According to HollywoodLife, Kelly and Shannon were hanging out together on March 14. Kelly’s fiancé Rick Leventhal and Shannon’s boyfriend John Janssen were also there. Shannon posted to her Instagram, “Neighbors… #walkingdistance @kellyddodd” along with a photo of the foursome together. It looked like a casual double-date night.
Kelly hopped on Instagram and wrote, “It’s fun being neighbors with these two.. @shannonbeador and John.” She also posted the same photo. This friendly reunion didn’t go over well with the other two Tres Amigas.
On March 15, Tamra added the comment, “Fake friends are like shadows. They follow you in the sun but leave you in the dark,” to her Instagram. Then she unfollowed Shannon. Realhousewivesfranchise took to Instagram and wrote, “RHOC: Vicki Gunvalson unfollows Shannon Beador after she made amends with Kelly Dodd! #realhousewives #rhoc.”
But no worries. you can still watch Vicki and Tamra at some point in the future. After Tamra and Vicki were spotted filming with cameras, RHOC fans were left to wonder what was going on. Vicki told People that she is shooting a new reality show with bestie Tamra, but it is nothing like RHOC. “We’ve got a really special journey happening. It’s something that will really inspire people. I can’t say much more, but I know it’s going to be a show people love,” Vicki explained. I guess that means that none of their typical drunken shenanigans will be featured on the duo’s new show.
