Real Housewives of Orange County fans were shocked, and some were pleased, when “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted for Season 14. After having the mother of all meltdowns during the RHOC reunion, Vicki and her bestie Tamra Judge were offered part-time contracts for the upcoming season. In January, the former Tres Amigas decided to quit.
So, what has Vicki been up to? Vicki is filming a new reality show with Tamra. She also has her own podcast, Whoop It Up with Vicki. And Vicki never weighs in on Housewives drama. Just ask former friend Shannon Beador. Vicki unfollowed Shannon on Instagram because Shannon made amends with Vicki’s nemesis, Kelly Dodd.
Choo-choo! All aboard the slowest moving train ever, the Real Housewives of Orange County Drama Express. Just when you thought you were finally free from a shrieking Vicki Gunvalson, good-time wannabe Tamra Judge, and having to watch lactation parties thrown by someone who basically breast fed for the last 20 years, Braunwyn Windham-Burke drags us back in.
Braunwyn was a new little fish in the iconic Orange County pond this year. Still, she managed to make an appropriately mediocre splash. She’s birthed 7 kids, filmed a vow renewal for next season, and has a mom with rainbow hair. Riveting. Vicki, the original orange herself, only served to make Braunwyn more relevant. She accusing Braunwyn of “trying too hard” while she ran off stage in the reunion, never to be seen again. Not to be outdone, Braunwyn, continues to fire back.
How does that old adage go? “You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.” What about “absence makes the heart grow fonder”? But, what about the people that never left? Tamra Judge got the boot from Real Housewives of Orange County ahead of filming for Season 15.
Instead of taking some time to regroup and figure out a new normal away from the spotlight, she’s had a lot to say, especially about RHOC. Recently, she shared some casting opinions. And, yes, of course, she thinks she was a part of the show’s “perfect cast.” No one is surprised by that, but it may be a little bit shocking to find out who else she named.
Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge might have said “adios” to Real Housewives of Orange County, but that doesn’t mean we have heard the last of them. I’m sure that’s exactly how they want it too. These two are so joined at the hip, I can’t imagine them doing anything separate at this point.
As viewers of RHOC, we
suffered through watched many seasons of the so-called “Tres Amigas”, which comprised of Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon Beador. But now that Vicki and Tamra have left the show, all that remains is Shannon and her relationships with her current cast mates. That doesn’t seem to be sitting too well with two thirds of the trio.
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.
Clearly, there is no love lost between Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Vicki Gunvalson. Vicki never warmed up to Braunwyn, who took her full-time spot on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Even though these two are no longer costars, the shit talking continues. And probably always will.
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.
When Real Housewives of Orange County “OG” Vicki Gunvalson was demoted for Season 14, everyone was
relieved shocked. Then Vicki decided to walk away from the show when she was not given back her orange for the next season.
Tamra Judge followed one day later after she was offered a deal for just three shows. But now it sounds like Tamra will be doing some filming for RHOC Season 15. We don’t yet know the details. Vicki has also said that she is shooting a new reality show with Tamra. But it is clear that neither Tamra nor Vicki can stay out of the Orange County drama.
