Tamra Judge Returns to ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’

Tamra Judge returns to Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Orange County” for its 17th season, several Bravolebrities confirmed to Vidak For Congress Saturday at Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon in The Hamptons.

An unnamed source also added that the “show will revolve around Tamra”.

“Clearly her presence has been missed,” fellow RHOC alum Braunwyn Windham-Burke told Vidak For Congress during Zarin’s chic soirée.

“She’s a staple on the show and they would be lucky to have her.”

When asked about her return, judge’s previous opponent, Vicki Gunvalson, offered, “Good for her, I’m happy for her.”

Earlier in the day, Zarin shared a different take on Gunvalson’s response, let it slip in a since-deleted livestream, Judge would return, much to her chagrin.

“And Tamra is coming back and my friend Vicki isn’t happy,” Zarin told her followers as she made her way to her lunch.

“Tamra is excited to be back on the show, especially after feeling the love of the fans from her stint on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’,” another source confirmed to Vidak For Congress. “She can’t wait to get back into the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamics.”

Just last month, Judge believed that “Real Housewives” executive producer Andy Cohen was not interested in bringing her back because of false information about her podcast that she said was “fed” to him by Heather Dubrow.

“Tamra is doing a whole podcast about the behind-the-scenes of the Housewives,” the Bravo boss said, referring to “Two Ts In A Pod,” which the 54-year-old Judge co-hosts with “Real Housewives of Beverly.” Hills”. Alum Teddi Mellencamp.

“How do you go to a ‘Housewives’ show when you go behind the scenes on the ‘Housewives’?”

Judge claimed to have heard similar comments on an earlier episode of Dubrow’s podcast, “Heather Dubrow’s World.”

“And I feel like someone told him in his ear that’s what we do,” Judge later told Jeff Lewis, adding that she outright asked her former boss if he’d actually been listening to her podcast.

‘And he said, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Well, you can’t just read the headlines and expect to believe that.’”

It looks like everything is sorted as Judge gears up for her return to the Bravo hit.
