How does that old adage go? “You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.” What about “absence makes the heart grow fonder”? But, what about the people that never left? Tamra Judge got the boot from Real Housewives of Orange County ahead of filming for Season 15.
Instead of taking some time to regroup and figure out a new normal away from the spotlight, she’s had a lot to say, especially about RHOC. Recently, she shared some casting opinions. And, yes, of course, she thinks she was a part of the show’s “perfect cast.” No one is surprised by that, but it may be a little bit shocking to find out who else she named.
In the cast shakeup heard around the world–OK–in Housewife Land–the departures of OG Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County were recently announced. After Vicki’s demotion to Friend of last season, her exit was not a total shock. Tamra’s departure was a little more surprising. Housewife OG’s and long-time cast members are probably shaking in their Louboutins–if they are smart and their reality egos allow for reflections on their Housewife status.
Vicki went out relatively classy–thanking her fans for their support. Tamra took her leave when she was only offered three episodes to wrap up her storyline. Then she appeared to unfollow her former co-stars on Instagram. Who could blame her? Being shown the door has to sting. If all that wasn’t enough, both Vicki and Tamra have more fallout to deal with from their lives as former Housewives–besides tarnished reputations, that is.
Fans are wondering who will join Real Housewives of Orange County after the news broke that Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are done with the show. Since nothing else has been announced, it’s safe to assume that Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson, aand Braunwyn Windham-Burke will be back for Season 15. Nevertheless, it’s unclear if they’ll be full-time or if they’ll get demoted to a part-time role, like Vicki was for Season 14.
Most likely, nothing will be “officially” confirmed until Season 15 has finished filming and the network is gearing up to promote the show, but there is one name floating around about a possible new cast member.
