The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge is ready to spill some deets on her new venture with BFF Vicki Gunvalson. As fans know, both stars left RHOC in January after Season 14.
Two months later, Tamra teased fans that there is, indeed, #lifeafterhousewives.
Coincidentally, moving on from Real Housewives fame is a topic Vicki addresses this week on her podcast.
Tamra Spills New Details On Post-RHOC Show With Vicki
In March, Tamra set tongues wagging by posting a photo of her and Vicki with a camera crew filming them. Fans didn’t know what they were seeing – were the close friends filming a reality show or a podcast?
Tamra finally gives an answer in a new interview with Hollywood Life.
According to Tamra, the new venture is “definitely” a reality show, but not like RHOC. From Tamra’s description, it sounds more like a feel-good reality show than a drama-filled, backstabbing Real Housewives one. Tamra says,
It’s more about Vicki and I traveling and meeting up with other women in the world.”
The CUT Fitness owner alludes to surprising fans with a “knock on [the] door.” Tamra goes on to say that the show is “really fun.”
Just like RHOC kicked off the other Real Housewives franchises, Tamra thinks this new show could “easily be franchised.” However, in March, sources said the show was not connected to Bravo, TV Shows Ace reported.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming of Tamra and Vicki’s new show is on hold. However, she tells Hollywood Life that things will be “moving forward pretty soon.”
Until then, Tamra and Vicki routinely have Instagram Live chats with fans. In fact, they are hosting a virtual happy hour on Zoom on Friday, May 15. The charity chat got them in a bit of hot water with fans who balked at the price tag.
Vicki Dishes On Life After Housewives
When Vicki’s not video chatting with Tamra, she’s hosting her own podcast, Whooping It Up With Vicki. In a case of interesting timing, Vicki’s guest this week is a writer from Hollywood Life.
In a preview on her Instagram, Vicki can be heard discussing how difficult it is to adjust after leaving RHOC, or any reality show. She says that stars expect a “seven-figure paycheck” that stops coming once they leave the show.
In addition, Vicki discusses how fame is addictive, comparing it to a drug. In another clip, Vicki recounts how RHONY star Ramona Singer worries that she will be next to lose her Bravo job.
