Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson Leaving Real Housewives of Orange County

Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are both leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County!

Gunvalson, who has been with the show since the beginning in March 2006, announced her departure on social media and made a statement addressing she had other projects in the works, including her podcast Westwood One which will be launching soon.

“I will always be the OG of the OC, but it’s time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Gunvalson wrote on Instagram. “It’s been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want to thank all of you for your support, for your love and for ‘whooping it up’ with me along the way.”

One day after Gunvalson’s news, Judge announced her own.

“It’s been a wild 12 years,” Judge shared on Instagram. “But it’s time for me to move on. I’m sad to go but I’m very excited about my future. Love <3 you guys.”

Judge, 52, became a cast member in season three.

Although Judge seems to be thriving with her CBD business, some are speculating she may not have been ready to leave RHOC. The Real Housewives Polls noted Judge had proceeded to unfollow some of her cast, including Andy Cohen and Shannon Storms, after her announcement had been made.

Regardless of the circumstances, it’s bittersweet losing two people who have been with the RHOC cast for such a long run. They will be missed by many fans.

Season 14 of the RHOC concluded in December, and season 15 will begin filming soon. Look for 15 expected to start airing sometime in the summer on Bravo.
