Tamra Judge unfollowed Shannon Beador over the weekend after quitting her role on The Real Housewives of Orange County after 12 seasons. So, are they still friends?
While Judge clicking the “unfollow” button was certainly quite suspicious, the two women appeared to be on good terms with one another just days ago. In fact, when Judge announced she was leaving the show, Beador posted a very loving and supportive message to her in the comments section of her post.
After Judge told her fans and followers that it was time for her to move on from the show after 12 years, Beador told her, “You will always be my ride or die, soul sister and friend for life.”
“Love you!” she added.
Throughout their six seasons together on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Judge enjoyed a years-long friendship and traveled to many places with their co-stars, including Vicki Gunvalson, who rounds out their “Tres Amigas” group.
Most recently, during season 14, the group enjoyed time together in Florida, where Gunvalson went to war with Kelly Dodd over claims of being a “con woman.”
Gunvalson shared the news of her exit from the cast on Friday along with a throwback photo of herself taken during the very first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2006.
Gunvalson was one of the five cast members chosen to launch the series in March of that year and the only cast member who continued to appear on each of the series’ 14 seasons since.
Her sudden exit from the show truly marks the end of an era.
By the end of the 14th season last year, Shannon Beador wasn’t close to the remaining members of the cast, including Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. In fact, the group was seen poking fun at Beador and how old she was on a number of occasions during the show. So, when it comes to a potential return, it’s hard to say where, if anywhere, Beador would fit in.
Because the other two “Tres Amigas” have left the show, it seems to make sense that Beador would follow, unless, of course, producers were able to bring potential alliances for her to the show for season 15.
If Beador does return to The Real Housewives of Orange County cast for its upcoming episodes, it seems likely that she will be bringing her boyfriend John Janssen along for the ride.
Beador and Janssen went public with their relationship last July and have been going strong ever since as they continue to travel with one another and enjoy each other’s company in Southern California.
No word yet on a potential premiere date for the upcoming 15th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
