Tamra Judge has sent a message to her haters.
Specifically, to co-stars Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd, both of whom has tried to give Tamra the boot from The Real Housewives of Orange County in the past.
And that message goes something like this:
I ain’t going anywhere, suckers! Deal with it!
Granted, Judge used slightly different words.
But insiders have confirmed to Us Weekly that fans who watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online next season will most definitely see Judge included among the regular cast members.
And Tamra herself has also basically confirmed this news.
On Monday, she shared a photo of herself in a trucker hat, including with the picture a hashtag-laden caption that made her reality TV future clear.
“#yes #stillahousewife,” wrote Judge.
In late October, sources told Radar Online that Tamra’s future on the long-running Bravo series was a bit cloudy, pointing to a memorable Season 11 confrontation as the reason why.
“Tamra hitting Kelly may have cost her the contract,” the source said at the time. “Everyone knows that you can’t hit another Housewife!”
This, of course, is ridiculous.
It’s probably written into every other script that one Housewife either hits another Housewife or threatens to do so.
The feud between Tamra and Kelly Dodd will be played up as much as any other storyline heading into Season 12.
Tamra has had beef with Gunvalson and Dodd over her claims that Vicki conspired with ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers to lie to the public about his alleged cancer diagnosis.
Gunvalson shot back by accusing Judge’s husband, Eddie Judge, of being gay.
This allegation has been making the rounds for several weeks, with Judge responding to a caller who asked about Eddie’s sexuality during an appearance opposite Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
“Let’s just put it this way. Me and Eddie are such trolls that I need to be married to somebody that’s gay? Why? Why? What’s the point of it?” Tamra said in October, adding:
“Why is it that a hot guy can’t be straight?”
Tamra had previously said of Eddie to Bravo in July:
“He’s hot and he’s great to my kids. And he’s just a good person. So he makes things very easy for me.”
Those are all great reasons to be with someone.
Are you excited that Tamra Judge will be on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12?
Do you want to see her feud with Vicki continue?
Or are you anxious for a cast shake-up because things have grown stale among these women?
