Rumors are flying that frenemies Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County.
AllAboutTheTea.com can confirm that the rumor is completely FALSE.
We spoke to a rock solid RHOC insider, who tells us that the co-stars have no intention of walking away from the original “Housewives” series.
“Rumors implying Vicki and Tamra are leaving are completely false,” a source tells AllAboutTheTea.com.
Tamra has gone on record stating that she gets paid big bucks for cranking up the drama on the reality hit. Tamra owns CUT Fitness with husband, Eddie Judge, but it’s no secret that she largely relies on her Bravo paycheck to pay the bills.
“Tamra is purchasing a more expensive house and needs the show’s income. The show is her primary source of revenue.”
Our source also confirms that Vicki will continue to hold strong, and has no plans to leave the production that she put on the map.
“Vicki’s position is that she stands as a Bravo original, and she’s not ready to walk away from that legacy just yet.”
Once upon a time, Vicki and Tamra made a formidable duo — and we’re told their season 12 reunion reconciliation even sparked a genuine truce. It appears that the pair might even “whoop it up” again in Season 13.
The upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County will start filming after the holidays — early 2018.
