Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson caused a frenzy when they teased that they were back to filming on Sunday just months after being ousted by the Bravo show. Two of the Tres Amigas posted behind-the-scenes footage showing cameras surrounding the duo as they sat down at a kitchen table to take the spotlight once again. Interestingly enough, the third member of their exclusive friendship group Shannon Beador was not in sight during the session, which isn’t necessarily surprising considering Tamra Judge just recently unfollowed her.
Posting a snap of with Vicki Gunvalson at the table drinking wine with the camera on, Tamra Judge captioned the picture, “How’s your Sunday?” while adding the hashtag “life after housewives.” Vicki Gunvalson uploaded the photo too, writing, “Just another Sunday night #lifeafterhousewives #cantkeepusdown #woohoo.” Meanwhile, Tamra Judge shared a video of them on her Instagram Story. “You thought you saw the last of us?” she teased while showcasing all of the lights and cameras. Vicki Gunvalson’s fiancé Steve Lodge took to his own Instagram to boast over the former “RHOC” stars.
“You can’t keep these two women down. They are an inspiration”, he wrote while adding the hashtag “the next big thing.’” While it’s unclear exactly what Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were filming, fans were quick to draw their own speculation. “Please tell me ya’ll are filming a new show!!!” one fan wrote. “Spin off?!?” added another person. In January, it was announced that Tamra Judge was leaving the “RHOC” show after being one of the leading ladies after several years. The news came just one season after the OG Vicki Gunvalson was demoted to a friend instead of the star.
While it’s unclear exactly what the duo was filming, Radar Online reported that Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are banned from TV for the next year due to their Bravo contracts. “Vicki and Tamra have a one-year non-compete clause in their contracts,” a source told the outlet. “They will have to get special permission to film any other television shows for the next year.” Tamra Judge laughed about her departure with Bravo daddy Andy Cohen, who she claimed “fired” her, and recently clapped back at Wendy Williams when the talk show host told her viewers that Bravo gypped Judge over $800k after they demoted her.
