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.
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.
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.
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??
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!
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!
Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives Of Orange County and with all the chaos, the only thing I could think about was that Gina Kirschenheiter is actually MOVING her word art collection. Like it’s priceless art. Frankly I’m surprised she wasn’t selling it to Sothebys. But seriously you guys, just like her marriage and her ex-man, that stuff is garbage!
Gina decided to reconcile with Matt, and she is glowing like a teenager with a crush as she tells Emily Simpson that he’s truly changed. Gina believes this is a second chance at their marriage. They’ve sold their Coto home and are moving some place new and fresh, and Gina doesn’t even worry about what Matt’s doing in LA.
Well, just like Gina cut the dead ends off her hair, she needs to cut off Matt! Emily knows this, but she tries to be supportive. We can see in others what we can’t see in ourselves, right!
If you crammed any more drama, hijinks, meltdowns, and hysterias (and medical issues!) into this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County I think it would explode a la Kelly Dodd after 2 cocktails and exposure to a snarky meme. Things would just come flying out, every which way, and the only thing that would be left standing amid the rubble would be Tamra Judge and the two giant inflatable jugs she has strapped to her chest as a bullet-proof vest/getaway life raft.
I literally can’t even begin to dissect all the switching animosities and loyalties, but all I have to say is Tamra is masterful at manipulating these women in a tizzy of stupidity. And Kyle Richards thinks Lisa Vanderpump plays chess…
