Tamra Judge is back for her 12th–yes–12th season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. In that time, she has co-starred with–and emotionally exhausted–19 other Housewives. As Vicki Gunvalson is now a Friend of, Tamra is the new reigning queen of the show. Like it or not!
On the most recent RHOC episode, reigning queen Tamra was moving her mother into a senior apartment and found out that she has been storing something that Tamra would probably rather forget. No, not embarrassing lawsuits, her son Ryan Vieth’s shameful antics or nemesis Gretchen Rossi–her old wedding dress from her toxic marriage to Simon Barney.
I was going to start this article by listing all the divorced Real Housewives, just to show how tough it is to be on reality TV and remain married. But listing all the happily married couples would literally take less time and space. Is that because reality TV stars are generally pretty insane (and I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course)? Or is it because the strain of having cameras in one’s face 24/7 is just too much for a marriage to handle?
Its a classic chicken/egg dilemma. What comes first? The toxic mess of a marriage or Bravo cameras?
Ooooh… already a juicy cliffhanger on Real Housewives Of Orange County and courtesy of Vicki Gunvalson no less, who is desperate to prove that she belongs holding an orange.
Kelly Dodd really had no other option but to storm out of Tamra Judge‘s housewarming party after unleashing her superpower supersonic F-bombs on Vicki.
When Kelly’s voice goes to that decibel of extreme whininess I imagine that dogs everywhere go into a trance and start walking, zombie-like, towards the TV screen. Frisker – go to a new master!
We are three episodes in to the Real Housewives of Orange County and the drama is already ramping up. On last week’s show, we watched demoted Vicki Gunvalson chasing Kelly Dodd around Tamra Judge’s house to try to talk out their differences. Or, more likely, to get extra screen time to try to regain her orange.
So far, the season looks to be more promising than the last few. I am liking newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who seems interesting and grounded. We’ll see how long that lasts! Veteran Tamra’s storyline so far has been her new home–and shamelessly planting some seeds for future conflict between her sons Ryan Vieth and Spencer Barney. Of course, Tamra is all about pot-stirring–and creating drama by voicing her opinions on everything. Fortunately–or unfortunately–for viewers, Tamra is willing to do this both on and off the show.
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County brought the unthinkable–the demotion of “OG” Vicki Gunvalson. Vicki even got engaged to her man, Steve Lodge, but it wasn’t enough to save her full-time gig. Vicki is still atoning for her creepy relationship with alleged scammer Brooks Ayers, who pretended to have cancer and made a fool of Vicki. Vicki is suing him for money that she loaned him. I wouldn’t be too optimistic about getting that back.
Another Housewife, Kelly Dodd, has been in the thick of all the drama, and she seems to have issues with almost everyone. Recently, RHOC co-stars Shannon Beador, Tamra Judge, and Vicki called Kelly “a train wreck.”
On the second episode of Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador laughed watching the pig video that Kelly Dodd posted about Vicki Gunvalson. Fast forward to a few months after filming and the Tres Amigas are back together,
polluting filling our social media feeds with their #TresAmigas content.
Kelly isn’t buying their best friend act and neither am I. The Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon triangle just seems like a very convenient alliance to me.
We are back with Instagram Roundup! This time we are trying it out on a monthly basis with a look back of the most interesting photos from this past month.
Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder shared engagement photos with new fiancé Beau Clark. The two them along with other cast members went to Vegas for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s legal marriage ceremony. Yes, in case you weren’t aware, it wasn’t legal the first time they tied the knot, so they had to do it again.
How did Tamra Judge go from telling her husband that she still can’t trust Vicki Gunvalson during the last Real Housewives of Orange County episode to sporting a Tres Amigas necklace?
Why is Tamra friends with someone who spread rumors that her husband was cheating on her with a man? Other than the contractual obligations, of course. But, I’ll never understand it. Now, Tamra is #TeamVicki and she feels bad that the OG of the OC got demoted. But not bad enough to be sensitive enough not to invite Vicki for a watch party to see an episode that Vicki wasn’t even a part of. Yes. Tamra actually invited Vicki to watch the Season 14 premiere. How insensitive.
