It seemed like Gina Kirschenheiter and her estranged husband Matt Kirschenheiter were getting back together, but that’s not the case now. Although, you never know what could change from one moment to the next. They seemed pretty cozy, beyond being co-parents, in recent social media posts.
Now, the only place Matt can see Gina is on social media, since she recently filed a restraining order against him.
We all know that when Housewives get a divorce, there is bound to be lots of drama. Divorce settlements, custody issues and sordid allegations often accompany the splits. After a year or two, even the ugliest of divorces usually cool down and the ladies move on to other storylines.
Tamra Judge has been an exception to that rule. Since she and ex-husband Simon Barney split in 2010, the two have often had a contentious relationship. Tamra has not been shy about telling her side of the story, sometimes on the Real Housewives of Orange County–which has probably add fuel to the fire. Now, according to Tamra, things are finally looking up in the relationship between she and her ex.
Buckle your seatbelts, everyone! Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County debuts later this summe…zzzzzzzzzzzz… Okay, just kidding, I’m awake. Can you believe we’ve been watching these women for fourteen years? Once upon a time the original Real Housewives series actually delivered. RHOC covered the women’s lowest of lows: i.e., death, divorce dramas, drinks in the face, a fake cancer scam. It’s also given us some of the most unintentionally funny moments on TV. Think Gretchen Rossi’s singing marriage proposal. The show needs more completely staged organic, real life moments like that. Then there’s Jesus Jugs and the women’s sky tops. We will never unsee those!
RHOC paved the way for women-centered reality shows. Each season post-Brooks Ayers, however, has been awful. Not because he’s gone though. The stories have been stale, overdone, and slow. The reunion of the tres amigas last season still wasn’t enough. For the first time, there were rumors that Bravo was demoted Vicki Gunvalson, OG of the OC, to shake things up. Rumors aside, for the show to continue, we need a revival. Tamra Judge agrees.
We have seen them come, go, and come back again. Some Housewives have left the fold to pursue bigger and better things. Or just fade into obscurity. Heather Dubrow departed Real Housewives of Orange County after five seasons and a volatile squabble with Kelly Dodd. It’s a shame, because while many viewers felt Heather was cold and unapproachable, she was at least legitimately rich. She had an effortlessly chic, New York flair about her, and didn’t fit in with the rest of the Orange County crew.
Fans of Heather have missed her champagne-filled quips and seeing her enormous home. Heather haters have found themselves in a quandary because who wants to see Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge fight for the 679th time? In the past, Heather has teased a comeback. She has remained friends with mostly everyone, except Kelly. Heather cited her reasons for leaving RHOC were due to spending more time with family and because she wasn’t being offered more serious roles in Hollywood. Now that we haven’t seen Fancy Pants show up on a sitcom or nighttime soap, does that mean she is considering a return to
a steady paycheck reality television?
The news of Lisa Vanderpump’s departure from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has rocked the Bravo universe. So much so that everyone and their mother, (ahem Tamra Judge) has an opinion on the queen of diamonds and rosé leaving the show. An OG leaving a series is big news. Plus, if you’re on one of her shows, you’ll have no choice but to answer questions about it.
LVP might be leaving RHOBH, but she certainly isn’t done with Bravo. After all, the successful restauranteur/executive producer is the genius who gave us Vanderpump Rules. Give her an Emmy already! Fans aren’t the only people who appreciate LVP’s savvy for good TV. SUR-vers, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are forever indebted to the woman with the heavy crown.
During the last few weeks, we have been bombarded with the sad news that Lisa Vanderpump is leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after nine seasons. When word got out that Lisa had ditched the reunion, it seemed pretty clear her Housewife days were numbered.
Almost everyone has an opinion or theory on Lisa’s exit–from fans to co-stars to other Housewives. And Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge, of course, has her own views on Lisa’s departure, as she has an opinion on everything. And some of her thoughts may surprise you.
You knew this was coming. Now that former Real Housewives of Orange County star, Meghan Edmonds, has been publicly humiliated by her husband, the flood gates have opened. Cheating is old news for a lot of the ladies on RHOC, so obviously they feel justified in sharing their thoughts on Jim Edmonds’ salacious ways. Shannon Beador has certainly been down this road. Vicki Gunvalson is not new to relations outside the sanctity of marriage. And who
cares knows what skeletons are hiding in Tamra Judge’s closet.
While Meghan is licking her wounds and attempting to heal after Jimbo’s extra-curricular activities, comments are pouring in to show support for the mom of three. The poster boy for dad jeans is defending the HIGHLY inappropriate texts he sent to some woman while his wife gave birth. Jim denies he had physical contact with her, as if that is his one saving grace of innocence. After a heartfelt blog post on her personal feelings, some of Meghan’s former co-stars are weighing in on the scandal.
It seems like Tamra Judge and Simon Barney were married a whole lifetime ago. When Tamra first joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she and Simon were all about the PDA. Their biggest issue was Simon’s tension with Ryan Vieth, Tamra’s oldest son from a previous marriage.
Then we saw Simon, Tamra, and Vicki Gunvalson have a heated discussion at one of the season finale parties. In a limo on the way home, Tamra told him they were getting a divorce and that was that. Well, not really. Simon didn’t sign off to let their kids film RHOC. Their son Spencer Barney only reappeared when he turned eighteen and was able to sign his own paperwork. Their daughter Sidney Barney moved out of Tamra’s house to live with Simon full-time. And, of course, there is that infamous longstanding feud between Tamra and Sidney. All Sidney wants is for Tamra to stop talking about her on the show. However, Tamra can’t help talking about how she can’t talk about Sidney on the show, which constitutes talking about Sidney on the show, obviously. The whole thing could just be so simple, but it isn’t. Were the RHOC cameras rolling when Tamra and Simon reunited with their daughter for a school dance? Probably not, but that would have been very interesting.
