Tamra Judge may have quit the Real Housewives of Orange County, but she just can’t quit the drama. Tamra left the show after she was offered a limited 3-episode deal. Vicki Gunvalson, who was offered another Friend of the Housewives contract, preceded Tamra out the door.
Since then, Tamra and Vicki have stayed out of the RHOC drama. Just kidding! They unfollowed their fellow Tres Amigas Shannon Beador on social media after Shannon made amends with co-star Kelly Dodd.
It’s a scary world right now thanks to the Coronavirus outbreak. No one knows how long schools and businesses will be closed and how long many of us will be in self-quarantine. The Coronavirus is especially dangerous for people who already have compromised immune systems from other conditions.
Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge recently expressed concerns over her ex-husband Simon Barney, who went public with his cancer diagnosis last month. I don’t know why Tamra decided to do press about her ex-husband, who is a private person, and his health concerns. It’s not as if she has a reality TV show to promote. But, then again, there’s Cut Fitness, which she was promoting earlier this week, despite most gyms across the country closing because of Coronavirus concerns.
It was no secret that Bravo was planning to spice things up on Real Housewives of Orange County. Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to a part-time role on Season 14, and ultimately
was supposedly fired chose to leave the show when she didn’t regain her full-time status.
But she wasn’t the only long-time RHOC cast member to jump ship. One day after Vicki’s announcement, Tamra Judge told the world that she was ditching the show. Tamra decided not to accept the paltry 3 episode deal she was offered to tie up her storyline. Wait–Tamra had a storyline?
It’s no secret that Real Housewives of Orange County is undergoing a facelift (pun intended) for Season 15. Vicki Gunvalson, who had been with the show since day one, was demoted for Season 14.
When Vicki wasn’t offered an orange for Season 15, she walked. But she wasn’t the only RHOC star that was given a demotion and decided to leave.
It’s no secret that Bravo producers and network executives are trying hard to shake up the Real Housewives franchise. It all started with the demotion of Vicki Gunvalson for Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County. Then came the news that her and Tamra Judge were out for Season 15. Even on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, we’re seeing Nene Leakes get less and less screen time. Erika Jayne herself has said “everyone is replaceable.” The message is clear – all these women are dispensable to producers. To quote a line from Showgirls (yes, I am), producers know, “there’s always someone younger and hungrier coming down the stairs after you.”
As Reality Tea has previously reported, Tamra was offered three episodes to close out her story-arc on RHOC for Season 15. Since she wasn’t left with much of a choice to participate in the show, she declined the offer. She went out on a good note with Andy Cohen, doing an Instagram Live interview with him a few weeks back, where she joked about needing to study up on real estate again. But now Tamra is putting a new spin giving additional details on her departure.
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!
