Gretchen Rossi: Returning to RHOC to Ruin Tamra Judge’s Life?!

We’ve heard that one of the priorities that producers had for this past season was to try to reunite Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge.

That goal was apparently why they brought back Lydia McLaughlin. And, mission more or less accomplished, they’ve now fired Lydia McLaughlin. Make of that what you will.

But that doesn’t mean that Tamra is headed for a drama-free life. Because it looks like Gretchen Rossi is going to make an epic return to The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Tamra Judge and Gretchen Rossi aren’t exactly what you’d call friends.

You might think that, with Gretchen no longer on The Real Housewives of Orange County, the ongoing dislike between the two of them might have cooled off during the past season.

Out of sight, out of mind, you know?

Instead, things actually reached a boiling point — no, they more or less exploded — between Gretchen and Tamra.

See, back in August, Sidney Barney slammed Tamra Judge as a bad mother, accusing neglect and emotional abuse.

Sidney, not an adult, alleged that her estranged mother continued to use her as a storyline despite her repeated requests to not be mentioned, that Tamra misrepresented her relationship with Sidney to gain sympathy from followers, and that Tamra basically just sucks.

Sidney said that a little more eloquently, but you get the idea.

How did Gretchen respond to Sidney’s post?

With sympathy and support. Gretchen wrote in a publicly visible reply to Sidney’s post:

“You have no idea how your brave words are helping so many who have been wronged by your mother’s manipulation and lies as well … “

We honestly doubt that this was Sidney’s intention, but Gretchen was clearly making this about her.

“So thank you for being brave enough to speak the truth.”

“I am so sorry your mother and your family is going through any of this, especially publicly, but continue to stay strong.”

“Your morals and strength are commendable and inspiring.”

That is classic the enemy of my enemy is my friend, right there.

Well, it looks like Tamra’s life is about to get a whole lot more stressful.

RadarOnline reports that Gretchen Rossi is being courted to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County.

For a price.

“Gretchen is willing to return, but producers know she will only sign if they offer the kind of money she can’t refuse.”

According to their source, Gretchen wants the kind of salary that Vicki Gunvalson is making.

Reportedly, Vicki is pulling in about $ 750,000 a year. But apparently producers think that Gretchen might be worth it.

“Producers for RHOC know that they need someone who is going to bring the drama, and Gretchen will certainly do just that.”

She’ll certainly do that.

After Vicki and Tamra ever-so-slightly mended fences in Iceland, producers will want new, fresh drama that doesn’t threaten to derail the entire series.

They’ll also need it to be a source of reliable drama, too.

“Gretchen will never, ever make up with Tamra.”

That sounds much better than the random fights that the now-fired Peggy Sulahian used to engage in for no reason other than the fact that cameras were rolling.

“The two hate each other so much and it does not matter to Gretchen whether or not Vicki let it go because she will not.”

Gretchen and Vicki, of course, are still friends. But it sounds like Gretchen won’t hold back.

You know that Vine (who else is excited about Vine 2?!) where the kid does his impression of Real Housewives by stuffing his shirt hilariously and then saying “I won’t hesitate, bitch” while pointing a toy gun?

That, it sounds like, is what we can look forward to from the next season of The Real Housewvies of Orange County.

Assuming that producers cough up the requisite dough, that is.

With Meghan King Edmonds remaining on the show because she’s pregnant and Gretchen a likely castmate, we’re reportedly still looking at at least three new castmates being added to the roster for next season.

It’ll be interesting to see what sort of dynamic the producers cook up.

Tamra Judge: My Husband is Not Gay! Sheesh!

Attention, The Real Housewives of Orange County fans!

Tamra Judge has an important message to pass along. Are you listening? Are you paying close attention?

Here it is:


On Tuesday night, Judge and Shannon Beador were guests on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

When the topic of her marriage to Eddie Judge was broached, Tamra initially didn’t want to say very much.

“I don’t talk about my sex life on national TV,” she told one caller who asked her to describe what goes on between the sheets between her and Eddie.

But then Tamra couldn’t resist. Her curiosity got the best of her and she pressed the caller on why he was so curious about that intimate part of her life.

The man on the other end of the line said he had heard rumors that Eddie was gay, a topic that was also broached on Monday’s episode of this popular reality series.

Here. You can watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online to see how Eddie’s sexuality was brought up this week:

“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 shot back at the caller.

“Why is it that a hot guy can’t be straight?” 

Andy Cohen shook his head and did not have an answer to this question.

But he did add “from what I understand, you two can’t stop banging,” while Beador tried to have her co-star’s back.

“Can I just say we couldn’t get in the room earlier to get ready,” she claimed, implying that Eddie and Tamra were getting hot and heavy right before coming out on stage last night.

“He said, ‘All I need is 2 minutes babe!” Tamra said of this alleged quickie. “‘That’s all I need.'”

We somehow doubt this took place on the same evening a caller happened to call in and question whether or not Eddie is straight.

But we still believe Tamra’s defense of her husband overall.

Back in July, Tamra said of Eddie in a chat with Bravo’s The Daily Dish:

“We just get each other and we’re so in love and we give each other our space. I want to say we communicate quite well, but that’s not always the case.

“We both get over things.

“Like, if he gets upset at me, he’s over it in two seconds. If I get upset at him, we’re over it. So we just have a really great way of working together.

“And 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.”

We have no reason not to believe her.

How about you? Do you think Eddie Judge is gay or straight?

Watch the video posted at the outset of this article to see Tamra’s response to this issue on Watch What Happens Live.

RHOC’s Tamra Judge Pens A Touching Message To Her Estranged Daughter Sidney Barney

This absolutely breaks our heart…

As we reported, Real Housewives star Tamra Judge hasn’t spoken to her teen daughter Sidney Barney in over two years, mostly due to the fact that she’s on bad terms with her ex-husband Simon Barney.

In 2015, Sid released a statement accusing her mom of “verbally and mentally” abusing her for years (Tamra insists Sidney did not write the statement).

Fast forward to Monday, the RHOC personality has not forgotten about her daughter, and desperately wants the two to patch things up.

She posted the following photo and message on Instagram:

My heart hurts everyday and praying and keeping busy is all I can do to stop the tears. I’m balling my eyes out watching. I miss my daughter so much I sometimes feel like I could die of a broken heart ?. It’s in God hands #iwillnevergiveuponyouSidneyA photo posted by Tamra Judge (@tamrajudge) on Oct 10, 2016 at 6:40pm PDT

We absolutely feel for her, and we hope Tamra and Sidney can one day find peace.

Tamra Judge to Menopause: I Will Beat the F–k Out of You

Her friends may be a bunch of hot messes, but not Tamra Judge.

Judge has her sh-t together, and we’re not just referring to her being the only sober, coherent one in last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

The 48-year-old reality star is co-owner of Cut Fitness with her husband, Eddie and in May she won her very first fitness competition.

“I truly believe that working out, eating well, taking your supplements, is really the key to staying young,” Judge told Entertainment Tonight.

“I’m 48 years old. I started to see just a layer of fat developing around my midsection and I was like, ‘Oh hell, no. This is not happening.’

Judge works out with trainer Mia Finnegan, who’s often seen giving her client advice on the show.

“I get up at 4:30, 5:00 in the morning,” Judge told ET, “eat a little bit, then I go work out with Mia, and we work out for about two hours, then I do an hour of cardio … [I do it] five, six days a week.”

This, she believes, is what’s helping her power through menopause.

“[Mia] fine-tuned my diet, got me lifting heavy, and put me on supplements,” Judge explained.

“My whole body composition has changed.  I wish I could teach everyone going through menopause.  Trust me, you don’t have to accept it, you can reverse it.”

Judge encourages women of all ages to take care of their bodies.

“It doesn’t matter what age you are, you can do it,” she said.

“I would say 80 percent of it is your diet, and for women, lifting heavy weights [is key].

“Everyone thinks, ‘I’m gonna get bulky, I’m gonna get this…’ No. When you build muscle, and you eat that extra protein, your body is burning that fat all day long.

“So girls, eat your protein all day long, and lift heavy weights!”

And don’t audition for reality tv show.

Vicki Gunvalson: I’m The Victim! Tamra Judge Is The Meanie!

It's Vicki vs. the rest of the Housewives.

Vicki Gunvalson seems to be doing her best to make amends and repair relationships damaged by her ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers.

On last night's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Gunvalson finally sat down with Tamra Judge, and apologized for her hurting her old friend last season.

"I'm sorry. Will you forgive me?" Gunvalson asked Judge during new Houswife Kelly Dodd's beach party.

"I went about it the wrong way. I want to be us again."

Judge wanted to forgive her friend, but it's hard to get past the idea that Gunvalson had no idea Ayers was faking stage 3 cancer.

"I just find it really hard to believe that you live in the same house with a guy," Judge said to her.

"I mean, you would know if somebody had stage 3 cancer like that.

"Be honest, Vicki."

Gunvalson insisted she had no idea.

"I never knew," she said.

"I wasn't lying for him. I didn't know that he was lying to me. My love for Brooks was blind. Maybe I should have known better, but I didn't.

"I believed my man that I loved. Period."

Judge smelled a rat, and said so during her one-on-one interview.

"I think Vicki will never ever admit she knew he was faking," Judge said.

"This is why Vicki has a hard time making friends."

Then the original Housewive dropped a big ole' bomb.

"I believed Brooks had cancer and I believe all you guys were in on trying to bring him down. And that was hard. Because you didn't like him."

Uhh, hold up.

"I don't like him!" Judge interjected. "He is a piece of s—-. "

Feeling that she herself was owed an apologize

"I think you in particular should have really been there for me," she told Judge. "I don't think you were. I think you kind of turned a little bit on me.

PS, Gunvalson tweeted this after last night's episode:

"You didn't turn on me, you turned away from me when I needed you the most. You don't care.

"My relationship fell apart of me in front of my eyes.

You guys have no clue what I've been through."

Watch the full episode to find out if Gunvalson was able to make her way back into her co-stars' hearts (especially Shannon Beador's).
