Eddie Judge

Tamra Judge Shannon Beador

It’s clear after Season 15 of the Real Housewives of Orange County that a shake-up needs to happen. The cast has really turned toxic on one another and I honestly miss the old days of Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge dancing on bars at Andale’s. Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke put themselves in the running for the worst housewives of all time after last year’s performance. And Shannon Beador tried to be the fun uno amiga as the most senior cast member, but it just wasn’t the same.

Even though Tamra left the show after Season 14, she’s always involved with the drama. She and Shannon, who at one time talked on the phone for hours a day, have totally turned against one another. It seems like every RHOC former cast member and their momma has something to say about Tammy Sue stirring the pot, but at least she made the show interesting. I miss her naked wasted antics and watching her relationship with Eddie Judge on screen.

Gretchen Rossi Cl

It’s very clear after the disastrous 15th season of Real Housewives of Orange County that the show is definitely not what it used to be. There’s no more whooping it up with Vicki Gunvalson or pot-stirring from Tamra Judge. Gone are the days of Fancy Pants Heather Dubrow being the voice of reason or never-ending jokes about Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley‘s over-produced relationship.

Season 15 was a dud. Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke became more problematic than ever. And OGs of the OC Tamra and Vicki didn’t return at all. It made Shannon Beador the longest-running RHOC cast member, and the crown was definitely a bit too heavy for her to carry. Probably because she’s still going back and forth with David Beador years after their split.

Tamra Judge Braunwyn Windam Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

Tamra Judge, gone but not forgotten on Real Housewives of Orange County. Famously given the boot with toxic best friend Vicki Gunvalson, neither Tamra or Vick have graciously moved towards the light. Instead they have released multiple comments to the media about how RHOC will suffer in their absence. And yes, RHOC is suffering, but I’m not sure it’s due to their departure.

Chattering amongst Bravo insiders has already started to prepare us for the return of Tamra. While Eddie Judge calls in his Xanax Rx for renewal, Tamra is getting involved. Seeking out the most injured animal, the former Housewife is #TeamBraunwyn in Kelly Dodd’s debate over whether or not Braunwyn Windham-Burke is “faking” her alcoholism. Now Tammy Sue goes head to head with Kelly, as her foot inches through the door.

Tamra Judge Denies CUT Fitness Going Out Of Business After Selling Off Equipment On Instagram

As far as we know, Tamra Judge isn’t come back to Real Housewives of Orange County. That hasn’t stopped her from keeping herself in the limelight as of late. She’s come out swinging against former cast mate, Shannon Beador after she made up with Kelly Dodd. Then Tamra confirmed she is no longer friends with Shannon after Shannon ignored her phone calls. Lol on that one. I don’t blame Shannon at all after seeing last season. Tamra also moved AGAIN, this time ditching the $2M Coto de Caza property she was showing off on the show. Remember her bragging about that country club and golf course? She can kiss that goodbye now that she’s headed back to a property that was a significant downgrade in price.

Aside from keeping the gossip sites alive and well, Tamra is also busy with her side hustles. We know very little about her budding (pun intended) CBD business venture, Vena. While there is still have a website, we haven’t heard anything else about Vena since she brought it up on the show. Shocker, right? Tamra also recently said on an Instagram “Ask Me Anything” that she was interested in opening a home store. We’ve all seen her collection of Mackenzie-Childs kitchenware and can find that without Tamra’s help, thanks. But Tamra’s bread and butter for the longest has been CUT Fitness, a gym she opened with husband, Eddie Judge back in 2013. We saw plenty of the gym when Tamra opened it and many a scene on RHOC was filmed there. Now there are some rumors that this is the end of CUT Fitness.

Vicki Gunvalson Tamra Judge Real Housewives Of Orange County

By now, we’ve all heard that Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge left Real Housewives of Orange County. The reality of the situation is that they were both offered “Friend of the Housewives” contracts instead of full-time contracts, so they walked away.

After a humiliating demotion, and a just as embarrassing appearance during the Season 14 reunion, I don’t blame Vicki for not taking that deal again. It was not a good look for her. At all. And, well, no one is at-all-surprised that Tamra’s pride wouldn’t allow her to accept that part-time contract. Hopefully, there are enough patrons at Cut Fitness… But at least, we don’t have to hear awful things about her son anymore… or on the show, at least.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

Finally we have reached the end of the line with Real Housewives Of Orange County. It has been a long and confusing season of many Housewives I do not particularly like. Tamra Judge, I am looking at you. Furthermore I am so thankful I will no longer have to type Brauwnyn Windham-Burke‘s exhausting name, as exhausting as the woman herself, every week. Ugh.

Among the many revelations from part 3 of the reunion, we learned that skanky behavior has always been a cornerstone of the show’s foundation and Andy Cohen will not have you argue it any other way. Boobs out, girls!

We open with Vicki Gunvalson accusing Braunwyn of violating the show’s moral compass, causing Vicki to lose 2 clients. I’m sorry, so dating cancer scamming Brooks Ayers meets Vici’s clients “moral compass”? Andy reminds Vicki that she has flashed her tits at the dinner table, given fake blow jobs (in addition to plenty of low blows) and participated in the Naked Wasted episode with Gretchen Rossi, so why the revisionist history??

Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County

OK, so once again rolling in super tardy with a recap. This time for part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion. Sorry Vicki Gunvalson – I respect Christmas more than I respect you!

Legit question, though: Vicki wasn’t even a ‘Housewife’ this season, yet she is the star of this reunion? There she is, sitting in the supremo spot next to Andy Cohen, and at this point 3/4 of the reunion has been dedicated to dissecting Vicki’s antics and her fights on the show.

Part 2 was all about Vicki’s failed friendship with Kelly Dodd, and once again they promised to bury the hatchet in each other’s backs. First, though, they rehash the train rumor, the cocaine allegation, the throw mama down the stairs off a train tale, the broken hand in a bar con-woman catfight… You know, all the classics!

Kelly Dodd Real Housewives Of Orange County Season 14 Reunion Part 1

Wow – last night’s Real Housewives Of Orange County reunion was vicious on a level I haven’t seen since the heyday of Real Housewives Of New Jersey!

Vicki Gunvalson had a full-fledged meltdown, was stripped bare, and we were left with the skeletal remains of her original face. It continues in Part 2! Vicki’s entire identity is wrapped up in RHOC so when threatened with that loss, her true self came skulking out with a vengeance. Think Golom chasing the golden ring. I gotta say – I sort of love it. Part 1 of this trilogy, it was the Tres Amigas vs Kelly Dodd, with a little bit of Emily and Gina by their side. And it looks like Part 2 goes even darker.

First of all for the outfits, everyone looked awful. I actually thought Vicki and Emily Simpson, in their velvet dresses looked the best, but Emily’s makeup looked like she let Shane apply it as part of some trust therapy session. Emily and Shane are the new David and Shannon Beador. ‘Studying for the bar’ is Shane’s version of an affair, being that he’s Mormon and all. He’s so checked out of that marriage he might as well be in Italy frolicking naked in the forrest with his new girlfriend. Don’t forget the sock!
