Your First Look at The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17

Tamra Judge is one proud mama. On June 1, The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member took to her Instagram Stories to show off her daughter’s latest accomplishment.

How to Watch

Watch RHOC on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

With the strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” playing in the background, Tamra’s video showed Sophia Barney wearing a cap and gown. And in her ensuing posts, Tamra gave her teenager some well-deserved praise. 

Sophia Barney Is a High School Graduate!

Tamra’s video panned over the football field at her daughter’s high school, showing white folding chairs set up on the lawn, groups of proud parents, and high school students ready for their next life chapter. Showing her pride and love, Tamra illustrated her post with bright pink hearts. 

In the next share, the fitness buff showed Sophia accepting her diploma. “Happy Graduation,” read the caption. Though the pic was a bit blurry, Sophia’s big smile was undeniable. And the all-around joy continued at home. 

Tamra’s next Stories shared a glimpse of her newly renovated kitchen island. The marble counter was looking very festive, set with a vase holding a bunch of balloons with congratulatory messages on them. And the shiny balloons weren’t the only ones praising the high school grad. 

“Sophia we are [so] proud of you,” Tamra wrote in a heartfelt caption. Her next post showed a heart-flecked note that had been taped to the base of the vase and offered a closer peek at Sophia’s diploma.

Her graduation cap was perched on the side of the monumental certificate, and the countertop also held a ticket to the graduation ceremony and Sophia’s graduation medal.

Sophia’s Musical Gift

Sophia isn’t just a scholar, she’s also a talented musician. In fact, the high school graduate released her first song when she was in the eighth grade. It was called ‘Sketchers,” and yes, it was about sneakers. (And quite pretty, we might add. Take a listen here.) 

In 2021, Tamra shared an update on her daughter’s musical career. Sophia had just released a series of tracks under the name Feeuh, and they had a dreamy pop sound that channeled Lana Del Rey.
