Did Tamra Judge Accuse Kelly Dodd Of Pushing Her Mother Down The Stairs?

The Real Housewives of Orange County wrapped up Season 13 last December, but since then we have had a flurry of news about the ladies. The OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson has been sued for fraud and initiated a lawsuit of her own  against ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers for re-payment of $266,000 in alleged loans. And everyone’s favorite casita dwelling divorcee about town Gina Kirschenheiter was arrested for a DUI in February.

Other than Tamra Judge accusing ex Simon Barney of refusing to let their youngest daughter film on the show, we have not heard much from her, however. Which is a little unlike the lady we have come to know…and at best…mildly tolerate. Now, however, Tamra has emerged in a rather dramatic way during the off season involving an ugly accusation against her fellow Housewife, Kelly Dodd

Real Housewives of Orange County has had more than its share of divorces amongst cast members. Some of the splits have been relatively low drama-like the Gina/Jeanas-Gina Kirschenheiter and Jeana Keough. Other un-couplings have occurred after decades-long marriages fell apart-like the unions of Lynne Curtin and Vicki Gunvalson.

And a few breakups have been ugly-like those of OC besties Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge. Tamra probably gets the “award” for the longest standing drama following a breakup, however. Since she and ex-hubby Simon Barney parted ways in 2010, they have engaged in public battles over parenting and child custody. Now, Tamra is alleging that her youngest daughter Sophia wants to film on the show, but Simon won’t allow it.

Some Real Housewives earn their pay more than others, in my opinion. There are ladies who deserve it for being clever and funny, like Shannon Beador. Others earn their dollars by living a fabulous life of extravagance, like former OC Housewife Heather Dubrow.  But the biggest bang for the buck amongst Housewives comes from their ability to stir up drama. And few Housewives from any franchise have done it better (or worse!) than Tamra Judge of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

Now going into her twelfth season as a Housewife, viewers have seen it all with Tamra. An ugly divorce and custody battle. Remarriage. Financial problems. Bitter feuds with the likes of Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino. Finding Jesus. Multiple cosmetic procedures. And throwing wine in Jeana Keough’s face. You get the picture! Now, Tamra has hinted that it might be time to turn in her orange and become a regular citizen again.

Vicki Gunvalson Reported To Be Demoted To Friend Of Status If Boyfriend Steve Lodge Doesn’t Propose To Her

The last season of the Real Housewives of Orange County was not one of the best. Although I would say it was an improvement from the previous year, the season was still a bit of a snoozer. Not much happened, other than Gina Kirschenheiter age shaming the other women and Shannon Beador testing QVC frozen meals in her kitchen. Even Tamra Judge was on mostly good behavior. Except for injuring herself in a drunken, nude hot tub escapade!

And one of the consistent creators of OC drama spent last season minding her manners. The Vicki Gunvalson we have come to know and love (or loathe!) was drama avoidant and almost demure the entire season. OK, she might have twerked in a see-through black lace outfit in public and got intoxicated a few times, but for the Queen of Coto de Caza, she was almost nun-like. And reportedly, Bravo is not happy about it.

After a painfully boring Season 13 of Real Housewives Of Orange County, the entire cast has been asked back for Season 14. That makes zero sense to me. How is the show going to get any better with all of last year’s players returning for the next season? Thankfully, there are rumors that a new cast member is joining the group.

Not only that, but RHOC alum Meghan Edmonds is making an appearance. All of the ladies gathered to celebrate Shannon Beador’s birthday. And, of course, they all posted photos. Hopefully, some drama went down in between the happy pictures that they shared.

Andy Cohen St. Patrick's Day

No one loves a themed event as much as a reality TV star does. And, of course, St. Patrick’s Day is no different.

There were plenty of reality TV stars that dressed up for the holiday and shared photos with their social media followers.

RHOC-Reunion-Gina-Kirschenheiter

When Gina Kirschenheiter joined the Real Housewives of Orange County last season, she seemed like a typical new OC Housewife. Marital problems. Check. Larger than life personality. Check. An instant feud with Shannon Beador. Check. Gina even offered up a few new things to the show. A Long Island accent. A ridiculously long last name. And claiming to have the friendliest divorce in Housewife history.

But a secret was lurking just below the surface. Gina seems to have a blatant disregard for the law. Like most of us, she began the month of February as a law-abiding citizen. At least for a few hours. But by the end of the month, Gina had experienced multiple run-ins with the law, and was even branded a fugitive! 

Meghan Edmonds

Blast from the past, Meghan Edmonds, was recently spotted filming Season 14 of  Real Housewives of Orange County. Meghan left RHOC in 2018 to focus on her brand new twins and daughter Aspen. Along with husband and dad-jeans connoisseur, Jim Edmonds, the couple packed up their candles kids and relocated to Meghan’s hometown of St.Louis.

Love her or hate her, she will always be the obsessed detective who uncovered one of the OC’s most controversial scandals. Is Meghan now regretting her decision to leave the spotlight? Does she plan on returning to discover more subterfuge and trickery?
