Tamra Judge is being a rock for her family, but she is still concerned about her husband, Eddie Judge’s, heart issues. The Real Housewives of Orange County star admitted that she is afraid about what might happen if Eddie’s condition takes a turn for worse, though she has to remain strong for her family’s sake.
“I have to stay strong, but I’m super scared because I’m just afraid what if? What if?” Tamra explained in an interview.
Tamra revealed that she constantly worries about Eddie having a heart attack or a stroke. She even scared herself one morning when he didn’t immediately wake up to his alarm. Tamra suspected the worse, especially when he did not answer her right away.

THANK YOU for all your prayers, messages and calls. But most of all thank you Dr. Andrea Natale & team for working so hard to fix my husband 💔 It’s been a long road and lot more difficult than anyone expected, confident this did the trick. Now it’s time to let your sweet heart ❤️ heal my love @eddiejudge #leftatrialappendage #ablation #bloodthinners😔 #watchmanprocedure comes next 🙏
Eddie, fortunately, was fine, but the episode illustrates how much Tamra worries everyday about her husband’s health.
According to Us Magazine, Eddie has undergone six heart surgeries because of atrial fibrillation. Although he recently went under for one of those procedures, Tamra says that his health is actually improving.
Things are going so well that Eddie is no longer taking heart medication and is only on blood thinners at the moment. Tamra hopes that things continue to look good and credits a change in doctors for the improvements.
Eddie’s heart issues have become a main storyline in Season 13 of RHOC. When filming was taking place, Eddie was not willingly to believe his heart issues were a serious condition. But denial soon led to fear as Eddie began to realize he had a long road ahead of him.
Luckily, Tamra Judge revealed that Eddie has gotten through the hard part and is starting to stabilize. In fact, this is the longest stretch of time that he has not had heart problems.
Fans can watch Eddie Judge’s story unfold when new episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County air Monday nights on Bravo.
