Ever since Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson walked away from Real Housewives of Orange County, they have not been able to stay away from drama. Both ladies wanted a full-time position. Tamra was offered a paltry three-episode deal to finish her storyline, but she refused.
Then, in late February, Bravo’s Andy Cohen confirmed that Tamra was going to be part of RHOC Season 15. We don’t know how much of a role she will play.
Ex-housewife Alexis Bellino has always been known for her excess. During her time on Real Housewives of Orange County, we often heard her bragging about houses, cars and expensive handbags. Her castmates famously ganged up on her on their trip to Costa Rica to point this out. Gretchen Rossi called her materialistic. Vicki Gunvalson (rest in housewives peace) told her she should be saving money instead of buying cars. And super villain Tamra Judge called on Jesus Jugs to”be a true person” for once. The verbal barrage ended with Alexis retreating to her room in tears, saying that everyone was bullying her.
While her marriage to Jim Bellino ended and her paychecks from RHOC dried up once she
got fired from left the show, Alexis didn’t exactly reign it in. She kept the cash flow coming in from super awkward stints on Marriage Boot camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition and a new relationship with a guy that I’m assuming also has money. I don’t know how much but I do know it’s enough for them to land on an episode of Below Deck together.
There is no question that Real Housewives of Orange County alums Gretchen Rossi and fiancé (and serial Housewife dater) Slade Smiley, are a polarizing couple. The duo started dating during Season 5 of RHOC.
Gretchen popped the question to Slade with a
cringe-worthy over-the-top proposal that played out on Season 8. It was unforgettable. Believe me—I’ve tried.
Many Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers assumed that Teddi Mellencamp would name her third child “Kyle” because, well, there are many reasons. Plus, the name is gender-neutral.
Teddi and her husband Edwin Arroyave welcomed their third child together last night, a baby girl. Edwin also has another daughter from a previous relationship.
I know that a lot of people are happy that Tamra Judge is gone from Real Housewives of Orange County. I get it. She always gets her way, she’s a backstabbing friend, and she uses her kids for a storyline. I totally get it, but I also understand that she drove most of the storylines for the past few seasons. I am hoping that they have another
snake shit stirrer instigator on deck in her absence. Otherwise, we are gonna be yawning all Season 15.
Nevertheless, I do understand why some people are happy Tamra is leaving. However, there are a couple that took the celebrations a little too seriously. And, I’m referring to Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley, two of Tamra’s many enemies from the Real Housewives of Orange County universe.
Whether you love her or not, you have to admit that Kelly Dodd is hilarious. Unless you are just a very biased mega hater, that is. We all remember Kelly’s dig about Tamra Judge’s business Cut Fitness being on Groupon during the Season 14 reunion. Personally, I love Groupon. There’s nothing wrong with bringing in some good customers with a good deal, but Tamra found that pretty offensive and denied the claim.
Now, Kelly is continuing the shade train (pun intended) with an Instagram caption she wrote at Tamra’s expense.
Tamra Judge may declared herself the “hottest Housewife in Housewife in Orange County” when she joined The Real Housewives of Orange County way back in Season 3, but could she be the darkest one too?
In a new interview, the reigning queen bee of RHOC (sorry, Vicki Gunvalson) looked back on how the show has changed over the last 12 years, and opened up about her impact on the direction of the franchise in its earliest days.
Whether you think Lisa Vanderpump is the queen of reality TV or the best chess player since Bobby Fisher, you have to admit that she has a strong following. In all honesty, she might have the most loyal fandom out of all of the Real Housewives. Her biggest Stans support everything she does from her TV appearances to her restaurants to her charitable endeavors. Some of them even go all in to call out Lisa’s (perceived) enemies on social media, blowing up Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and Kyle Richards‘ mentions whenever they slip up.
Basically, LVP is the influencer of all influencers, whether you love her or loathe her. And, let’s be honest, a lot of reality TV viewers do love her. She was a big part of the glamour that initially drew in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers. She has the most successful Real Housewives spin-off show, with Vanderpump Rules approaching its eighth season. Sorry, Kim Zolciak, Don’t Be Tardy isn’t the most exciting show on TV. She wasn’t even on half of RHOBH Season 9, yet she dominated the conversations during the season, the reunion taping… and in interviews and on social media.
