Tamra Judge has proven she is human this season on the Real Housewives of Orange County. While she is normally involved in all of the drama, Kelly Dodd took on that role this time. The two seemed to be getting along really well and then the Ireland trip broke that up. Judge was drinking after abstaining for a while, and Dodd pushed her buttons. This lead to an altercation that might or might not have gotten physical. Despite the reality television world being known for being a bit on the trashy side, physical violence is not tolerated.
There is only one episode left of the season, and then the reunion will air. Tamra Judge reportedly consulted a psychic before attending the taping a few days ago. It is rumored to be an explosive reunion, which is going to draw in the viewers. Judge went off on Kelly Dodd in Ireland for talking about her daughter and their strained relationship. According to the Hollywood Gossip, Tamra Judge may be on the chopping block with Bravo because she got physical with Dodd. The yelling and threatening to kill her weren’t a big deal, but the fact that she placed hands on her is the issue. While apologies were allegedly given, it won’t save Judge if the network decides to ax her.
Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Orange County will be happening, but it might happen without Tamra Judge. It was announced that Meghan Edmonds was exiting in order to focus on raising her daughter. Whispers were floating around that her husband, Jim, didn’t want her involved in this kind of life once she becomes a mother. Kelly Dodd was rumored to have been fired, but it was confirmed that she was asked back. She has not yet confirmed if she will return, but her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson is going strong, so it is likely. The OG of the OC wants to keep Dodd around, and money talks.
Earlier this week, Tamra Judge appeared on Watch What Happens Live and discussed the rumors that were circulating about her husband being gay. Eddie Judge was also in the audience and laughed when the caller asked about the rumors. Judge is upset that Vicki Gunvalson would attack her and her husband, but she seemed to lack any surprise about the matter. Shannon Beador was seated next to her and also discussed the allegations that David Beador beat her at one point. This is a point of contention between the cast members because Gunvalson says it absolutely did, and Beador says it did not.
If keeping Tamra Judge around will keep the ratings high, the network will likely allow her to stay. She has been rather tame over the last few seasons, but she broke that when Kelly Dodd opened her mouth in Ireland. Judge was actually shaking she was so upset and had Shannon Beador not kept her calm, the physical altercation could have been much worse. The atmosphere during the reunion could influence who will and will not return to the Real Housewives of Orange County. It is likely that all of the women will return along with one newbie to fill the shoes Meghan Edmonds is leaving behind.
Whether or not Tamra Judge returns is a moot point. She has been on the show for so long, she will forever be synonymous with the Real Housewives of Orange County. Her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson was one that viewers thought would go on forever. Judge has changed a lot since she began filming the show, and if she ends up leaving, she will be missed by many fans.
