Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge and her husband Eddie are in Mexico this week to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary, but their trip comes just days after he was in a hospital fighting for his life. Is Judge scared about her husband’s health and mortality after he underwent his fifth heart procedure in six months?
Just a week ago, Eddie was at Scripps Memorial Hospital to undergo another procedure for his atrial fibrillation, and Tamra shared the experience on her Instagram story. She posted a pic of the two holding hands and added the caption, “Praying this will be the end of @eddiejudge heart condition #ablation#2 I love you babe.”
According to Radar Online, Eddie’s health issues have given Tamra a big scare.
“He doesn’t want to die, and although docs assured him that they will correct the condition eventually, he knows that it is not looking good. This is his fifth procedure this year,” says an insider. “Tamra is of course freaking out. She doesn’t know what she would do if she lost Eddie, and the kids are also really worried.”
On the upcoming season of RHOC, the couple will share and explore Eddie’s heart problems. And in a preview, cameras caught Tamra saying that she keeps thinking about the mortality rate, and she is scared for her husband.
Tamra has been updating fans on Eddie’s heart condition since his first procedure back in December. Back then she shared a pic of her husband smiling while laying in a hospital bed and wrote in the caption that he was joking with nurses before his electrical cardioversion.
Over the past few months his condition has gotten worse, and in April Tamra wrote on Instagram while sitting in a waiting room that she needed everyone to say a prayer, and she wants her “healthy husband back.”
After his most recent procedure, Eddie appears to have recovered well, and Tamra posted a pic of him “mooning the nurses” while wearing a hospital robe. But, that doesn’t mean she still doesn’t have concerns for her husband’s health. A source says that Tamra is hoping the fifth procedure will be the last one.
Things obviously went well because he is already feeling good enough to travel, and Tamra was impressed with his ability to find a good rental house for their vacation. The 50-year-old shared a video of their house in Mexico and asked fans, “Is this place insane or what? Does Eddie Judge know how to rent a house?”
Before they arrived south of the border, Tamra also took the time to look back on the day they got married five years ago – which was a televised Bravo special, Tamra’s OC Wedding – and she shared some throwback pics with the caption, “Five years today. I love you @eddiejudge with all my heart. Thank you for loving me #tamrasocwedding.”
Watch all of Tamra Judge’s drama when Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Orange County premieres Monday, July 16th on Bravo.
