Real Housewives of Orange County star and fitness fanatic Tamra Judge is getting bored with the drama on the hit Bravo reality show and is reportedly ready to make some big changes and try something new. Will she leave the OC to star in a spin-off with her husband?
Reportedly, Judge is shopping around a new show that would focus on her role as CEO and personal trainer of Cut Fitness Gym. The 49-year-old owns the Orange County, California facility with her husband, Eddie Judge.
But, just because she wants to have her own show, it doesn’t mean she would leave RHOC. The insider says that Bravo is aware that Judge is pitching this idea, and they ultimately support it if it doesn’t interfere with her duties on Real Housewives.
The spinoff is still in the preliminary stages, but Judge wants this to happen, and she is talking to anyone willing to hear her pitch. It is somewhat telling that Bravo knows about her spinoff plans but hasn’t picked it up. Apparently, they aren’t interested, but that isn’t keeping Judge from trying other possibilities.
She and her husband will continue to work on this idea and are taking a meeting with “anyone who will bite.”
In the meantime, the couple has bought a second home in the guard-gated Ladera Ranch community of Covenant Hills for $1.585 million, and they have put their other home on the market as a rental at a rate of $6,000 a month.
The 3,800 square foot home features five bedrooms, a remodeled kitchen, a large walk-in pantry, and a breakfast nook. It also has a casita with a private entrance and a backyard with a firepit and built-in barbecue.
Judge’s new house is 4,000 square feet and has a “5-star resort”-style backyard with an elevated spa, swimming pool, a sunken outdoor living room, and a loggia with a granite island.
Fans should get the chance to see the new digs during season 13 of Real Housewives of Orange County when Judge will return with fellow cast members Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon Beador, and Kelly Dodd.
Bravo did not ask Peggy Sulahian and Lydia McLaughlin to return, and Meghan King Edmonds just announced on her blog that she has decided to hang up her RHOC hat because filming while being pregnant was just too much for her to handle.
Heather Dubrow has also expressed interest in the possibility of returning to her reality TV roots.
No official announcements about the Season 13 cast of Real Housewives of Orange County have been made.
