Tamra Judge Drops a Bombshell Update About Her Podcast With Teddi
Tamra Judge was admitted to the hospital on Sunday after experiencing stomach pains. The Real Housewives of Orange County star told her fans and followers that she had been diagnosed with an intestinal obstruction, posting a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed with a tube up her nose on social media.
“Praying I won’t need surgery,” she captioned her Instagram Story.
The 56-year-old Bravo star was in Scotland last week filming Season 2 of “The Traitors,” after temporarily stepping away from the podcast she co-hosts with “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum, Teddi Mellencamp, “Two Ts in a Pod.”
Tamra confirmed that her health issues were delaying her return to the podcast.
“Unfortunately I will not be back on @two.ts.inapod tomorrow ,” she wrote. “I’m so sad @teddimellencamp I miss you so much.”
Tamra fired back from her sick bed after a follower asked if the popular weight loss drug, Ozempic, was behind her stomach problems. Multiple “Housewives” and other celebs have admitted to using the diabetes drug to drop pounds.
Tamra shared a screenshot of a message that read, “This is Ozempic, right?”
“These comments are disgusting! I’ve suffered from intestinal problems for years. I’ve had multiple surgeries in the past 12 years,” she ranted. “Remember when you all made fun of me for not having a belly button. That was due to emergency life saving surgery. Part of my intestines were being strangled.”
Tamra also made the point that her grandmother “died of intestinal problems.”
She added — “I’ve never been on Ozempic and personally wouldn’t use it for weight loss!”
Tamra, who shared that her hubby, Eddie Judge, was supporting her with foot massages, also received messages of love and well-wishes from several past and present Bravo stars.
Teddi, 42, wrote — “Missing you @tamrajudge.”
Tamra’s RHOC co-star, Taylor Armstrong, posted a snap of the duo on her Instagram Story, writing—“Sending love, thoughts and prayers to my beautiful friend @tamrajudge .”

Tamra has been open about her health issues over the years, as she revealed a Stage 1 melanoma diagnosis in 2017.
“I probably would have never, ever even knew it was there because I am not turning around and looking back there,” she told Us Weekly, describing a small black dot. “It didn’t hurt. There was nothing, it wasn’t raised. There was no reason for me to think there was something wrong.”
The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip alum resumed her role on RHOC for Season 7 after a two-year absence. Tamra made her debut in Season 3 and left after Season 14, in 2019.
