Tamra Judge is best known for her role on The Real Housewives of Orange County, the longest-running series in the Real Housewives franchise. However, after twelve long years on the show, Judge recently announced that she would not be returning for the program’s fifteenth season. Although her exit from the series was a shock to all, Judge isn’t letting the drama weigh her down. Instead, she’s been hitting the gym and using her free time to work on her body.
Earlier this year, in Janurary, Judge’s castmate Vicki Gunvalson announced that she would not be returning to the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County for Season Fifteen. Gunvalson had been a staple of the show since its first season and even called herself the “OG of the OC” in her goodbye post. The former Real Housewife had already stepped down as a main cast member the season before, but many did not think she would quit the show altogether.
As if having one housewife leave weren’t enough, Gunvalson’s exit was made doubly dramatic when, the very next day, Tamra Judge also announced that she would be leaving Real Housewives of Orange County. She revealed that she had only been offered a limited role on the upcoming season of the series and had turned that down. In an interview regarding the decision, Judge said that she knew her departure from the show would come as an unhappy shock to her fellow cast members. Instead of waiting to see their reactions, Judge unfollowed them all on social media. However, there does not seem to be bad blood between her and the returning Housewives.
With Real Housewives of Orange County behind her, Judge has more time to spend with her family and on hobbies. One such hobby is fitness. Judge has been vocal about her passion for working out throughout her run on the Housewives show. In fact, she competed in a bodybuilding competition in 2016 and even came first in her division. Now that she has some more time, Judge seems to be getting back to bodybuilding and weight lifting. In a recent Instagram post, the ex-Housewife showed off a new set of abs that totally wowed fans. The Bravo personality credited her husband, Eddie Judge, as her “new trainer” in the caption to the post.
Judge might be 52 years old, but she is proving age is just a number. The former reality star is looking better than ever, and many of her famous friends, including Beverly Hills Housewife Kyle Richards, left positive and impressed comments on the post.
Although Juge has stated that she will not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange County any time soon, franchise producer Andy Cohen has stated that he would love to see her back on TV.
