Could another baby be in the cards for Tamra Judge?
On Saturday, September 28, the Real Housewives of Orange County star answered questions from fans on social media. One fan asked about the possibility of expanding her family with husband Eddie Judge.
Just a few years ago, the Real Housewives of Orange County was one of the crown jewels in Bravo’s sprawling franchise. However, even the most diehard OC apologists can admit the show has suffered a major fall from grace in the last few years from its glory days of fake cancer and Irish bus rides from hell.
And in a new interview with HollywoodLife, Tamra Judge is finally acknowledging the rough years, and promising fans a major course correction during Season 14.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke may be a recent transplant to the OC from Miami, but it turns out that she’s more than a little well-connected to several past Orange County Housewives.
In a new interview, the Real Housewives of Orange County newbie opened up about her deep roots with one particular OG of the OC and picked which former ‘Wife she would want back on the show.
There are some reality TV stars’ kids that we have literally watched grow up throughout the years. It’s crazy to think that Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers saw Teresa Giudice pregnant with Audriana Giudice during the Season 1 reunion. Now, she is a fifth grader. Do you feel old yet? I do. How about this one: Gia Giudice is a freshman in college.
Jersey Shore fans saw Snooki and JWoww go from hard-partying roomies to devoted moms. Now, their kids are in school too. And just like most other moms, reality TV stars took (and shared) photos of their kids’ first day of school.
We are three episodes in to the Real Housewives of Orange County and the drama is already ramping up. On last week’s show, we watched demoted Vicki Gunvalson chasing Kelly Dodd around Tamra Judge’s house to try to talk out their differences. Or, more likely, to get extra screen time to try to regain her orange.
So far, the season looks to be more promising than the last few. I am liking newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who seems interesting and grounded. We’ll see how long that lasts! Veteran Tamra’s storyline so far has been her new home–and shamelessly planting some seeds for future conflict between her sons Ryan Vieth and Spencer Barney. Of course, Tamra is all about pot-stirring–and creating drama by voicing her opinions on everything. Fortunately–or unfortunately–for viewers, Tamra is willing to do this both on and off the show.
It’s tough to be the new girl on a Real Housewives show. All of the
older more seasoned cast members are scared of losing the spotlight, and ultimately, their full-time status on the show. Braunwyn Windham-Burke will make her Real Housewives of Orange County debut on tonight’s Season 14 premiere.
Notably, the OG of the OC, Vicki Gunvalson, has been demoted to part-time status. So, those are some
obnoxious big shoes for Braunwyn to fill. Does she have what it takes to last on RHOC? Or will she be a “one and done” like Peggy Sulahian or Peggy Tanous? Well, at least her name isn’t Peggy, so she doesn’t have to deal with that one-season curse. Then again, Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson each got a second season after contributing zero during their rookie years. RHOC is struggling to say the least. Does Braunwyn have what it takes to resuscitate the original Real Housewives show!? Let’s hope so. There’s a lot riding on this, Braunwyn.
It’s been quite a ride for Shannon Beador since she joined Real Housewives of Orange County. Since we’ve “known” her, Shannon has weathered many storms (see what I did there? I’ll show myself out). First, there was her rocky road to a relationship with Heather Dubrow. Then there was THE AFFAIR, which sent Shannon on a crusade to save her marriage to dead eyes David Beador. Finally, there was the separation and inevitable divorce. Nine lemons in a bowl weren’t enough to save that ship.
Shannon’s life has always been something to watch. In Season 14 of RHOC, I think we’re going to see a completely different Shannon. Since last season, she’s totally come into her own as an individual. She started her own QVC food line, got back in shape – and started dating again with the help of former frenemy Kelly Dodd. Now it looks like Shannon is on to the next!
Buckle your seatbelts, everyone! Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County debuts later this summe…zzzzzzzzzzzz… Okay, just kidding, I’m awake. Can you believe we’ve been watching these women for fourteen years? Once upon a time the original Real Housewives series actually delivered. RHOC covered the women’s lowest of lows: i.e., death, divorce dramas, drinks in the face, a fake cancer scam. It’s also given us some of the most unintentionally funny moments on TV. Think Gretchen Rossi’s singing marriage proposal. The show needs more completely staged organic, real life moments like that. Then there’s Jesus Jugs and the women’s sky tops. We will never unsee those!
RHOC paved the way for women-centered reality shows. Each season post-Brooks Ayers, however, has been awful. Not because he’s gone though. The stories have been stale, overdone, and slow. The reunion of the tres amigas last season still wasn’t enough. For the first time, there were rumors that Bravo was demoted Vicki Gunvalson, OG of the OC, to shake things up. Rumors aside, for the show to continue, we need a revival. Tamra Judge agrees.
