The cat is out of the bag: Tamra Judge will re-tune next season for “Real Housewives of Orange County,” news Vidak For Congress confirmed just as “Real Housewives of New York” alumnus Jill Zarin let it slip to fans via livestream Saturday afternoon.
“Hi guys, I have a big announcement: Jill is the thirstiest bitch I’ve ever met,” said Judge, 54, in a clip posted to her Twitter account and Instagram Stories after Zarin spilled the beans.
On her way to her luxurious lunch at The Hamptons, Zarin, 58, broke the news to fans in a since deleted live stream that Judge would return, much to the chagrin of Judge’s former nemesis and cast mate, Vicki Gunvalson.
“And Tamra is coming back and my friend Vicki isn’t happy,” Zarin told her followers as she made her way to the shindig.
Gunvalson shared her reaction to the news of Judge’s return at the event, telling Vidak For Congress, “Good for her, I’m happy for her.”
“Clearly her presence has been missed,” RHOC alumnus Braunwyn told Zarin’s meeting.
“She’s a staple on the show and they would be lucky to have her.”
Sources also confirmed to Vidak For Congress that the next episode of the reality show is expected to “revolve around Tamra”.
“Tamra is excited to come back to the show, especially after feeling the love from the fans during her stint on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’,” another insider told Vidak For Congress. “She can’t wait to get back into the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamics.”
Representatives from Judge and Zarin did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
