Tamra Judge Shares Details on Her Return to RHOC

Tamra Judge is “still on a high” following her big announcement that she’s returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County, but she’s not the only person in the Real Housewives family who has feelings about it.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

In fact, Tamra’s longtime BFF, Vicki Gunvalson, wished her bestie all the best after the news was confirmed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week. “‘My friend, my soulmate my sister’ is back on RHOC. I loved seeing you reclaim your orange last night [July 20] with [Andy Cohen] on WWHL,” she shared on Instagram along with some throwback photos. “Go give ’em hell girl!” She also added the hashtags “memories,” “fun,” and “she’s back.”

The OC alums were buzzing about the news, including Jeana Keough, who shared another throwback photo and wrote on Instagram, “So excited for Tamra!”

News of Tamra’s return also made its way through Real Housewives cities across the franchise. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville, who appeared alongside Tamra (and Vicki) during Season 2 of Peacock’s The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, tweeted, “Yassss!!! Congrats!!”

Meanwhile, all the way around the globe, The Real Housewives of Dubai’s Nina Ali shared on Twitter, “Yes!” along side heart and fire emojis.

All the love and support comes in the wake of the announcement that Tamra will be returning for the upcoming Season 17 of RHOC. (To recap, Tamra, who joined in Season 3, exited back in January 2020 following Season 14.)

During Wednesday’s episode of WWHL, Andy shared his reaction to the news, noting, “So I do think that when you come back, it’ll be fun to see where your life is.”

And in case you want a little taste of what Tamra might be bringing to the RHOC antics in the upcoming season, during her announcement in the Clubhouse, she shared, “The Judge is back and drama is in session.”
