Tamra Judge crashes ‘WWHL’ and hilariously confirms return to ‘RHOC’

Published

“The Judge is back, and drama is in session.”

After weeks of rumors about her potential return, Tamra Judge showed up as a surprise guest on Wednesday’s ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” to break the news that she’s returning to “The Real Housewives of Orange County” for Season 17.

Mid-episode, the “WWHL” clubhouse studio’s hallmark doorbell rang, signaling an incoming surprise for Cohen and guests, Sutton Stracke of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and Lesa Milan of “The Real Housewives of Dubai.” 

Cohen said, “A doorbell, what? Oh my God, what?”

In walked Judge in a Versace jumpsuit, igniting cheers from the guests and studio audience. 

Cohen continued, “It’s Tamra Judge. What are you doing here?”

Judge replied, “There’s something I forgot to get last night,” as she proceeded to the back of the set and picked up an orange from a basket of oranges, the hallmark item the “RHOC” cast holds in their final intro pose every season. Intros have become a large part of the housewives world, as the looks and standing order of the ladies are debated by fans each year. Oftentimes, it’s thought that the closer the ladies are to the center of the group, the more influential their storyline will be that season. 

Cohen then asked Judge, “What do you have to say for yourself?”

With an orange in hand, Judge replied, “the judge is back, and drama is in session.” 

Then, Cohen confirmed Judge’s return, and exclaimed, “Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s true, Tamra Judge is returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Welcome back, Tamra.”

Judge’s return has been rumored for months … and other housewives almost spoiled it

On July 16, Judge’s “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” co-star Jill Zarin shared on her Instagram story that Judge would be returning, even though there had been no official announcement by Judge or Bravo. 

Zarin said, “Vicki (Gunvalson), from OC, by the way, who just got let go, breaking news, like, because it’s confirmed by her, happened yesterday, and Tamra’s coming back, and my friend Vicki is not happy.” 

Judge replied, posting a video to her Instagram story and Twitter feed, and said, “Hey guys, I have a big announcement, Jill is the thirstiest b—- I’ve ever met,” and also responded to a fan account who tweeted the video, and wrote, “Go f— yourself @JillZarin! You thirsty b—-!”

On the July 20 episode of Judge’s podcast, Two T’s in a Pod with Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge, Judge explained that she had been tight-lipped about her return, planning a surprise announcement with Cohen for when she was in New York for “WWHL.”

Judge said, “Andy called me and said, ‘I really want to announce you’re back when you’re in New York with Vicki doing “Watch What Happens Live.” However, that’s kind of a little awkward because Vicki was not asked back. And I said, ‘can I please tell her?’ He said ‘Yes, you can tell her.’ Because I wanted it to come from me. I know it hurts (not being asked to return). If the roles were reversed, it would sting. I would be happy for her, but it would sting.”


Bravo

Judge explained that Gunvalson was “kind, but sad” when she told her about her return, and said that she would “love” for Gunvalson to film with her. Before hanging up, Judge said she asked Gunvalson to “please not tell anybody.”

Judge said Gunvalson immediately texted Cohen, who also asked Gunvalson to not tell anyone.

“Fast forward two days, she goes to the Hamptons, to this insane charity event that Jill Zarin was throwing, and the next thing I know, Jill Zarin is outing that I’m back on ‘Housewives,’” Judge explained.

Judge said she “lit both their a—- up on text,” and that Gunvalson denied to Judge that she had anything to do with Zarin’s post. On Thursday, July 21, Gunvalson posted an Instagram post congratulating Judge on her news.

Since the back-and-forth, Judge said, “Jill has been blowing me up, text messages, voicemails, (saying) I didn’t mean it, I didn’t mean it.”

Judge joked, “when she gets back on the legacy (the upcoming spinoff of “The Real Housewives of New York City”), I can’t wait to announce it.”

Judge said her time on ‘RHUGT’ helped make a stronger case for her return

With “RHOC” production starting next week, Judge said on her podcast that she had been in talks with the production company behind “RHOC,” Evolution, for two months. 

When Judge left “RHOC” at the end of Season 14, she said Cohen told her to “stay still,” and noted that he thought she would make an eventual return. 

Judge believes her time on “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” helped make the case for her return, as she said “the feedback really did me some justice.”

Judge said that on “RHUGT,” she “just wanted to be me,” and hopes to harness that sentiment when going back to “RHOC.” 

Judge explained, “Being off the show is the best thing they could’ve done for me. It reset me,” meaning that when she returns, she “won’t feel like I have to make good TV.” On “WWHL,” Judge added that her next season will be “totally different.”

Judge said there are ‘uncomfortable conversations’ to come with her castmates

After two years off, Judge said she’s “not worried” about filming with anyone, but knows she will have “uncomfortable conversations with a few cast members.”

When TODAY last spoke to Judge, she said she “missed” former castmate and ex-BFF Shannon Storms Beador, and hoped that “maybe someday we can sit down and talk about it (their fallout).” Looks like the pair will get that chance — and viewers will get to see as well.

On her podcast, Judge said, “I need answers to get close to her again,” but hopes that the pair can find resolution. Judge also noted that Storms Beador texted her prior to her “WWHL” appearance to wish her good luck.

Another wife Judge had a recent conflict with? Heather Dubrow, who returned to “RHOC” last season.

On the May 5 episode of Dubrow’s podcast, “Heather Dubrow’s World,” Dubrow addressed Judge covering “RHOC” on her podcast, expressing discontent for Judge’s “negative” commentary about some of her scenes on “RHOC.”

Dubrow said, “There’s just a couple of things that I’ve heard and I go, ‘Man, why say that?’” and one of Dubrow’s co-hosts said, “there’s nothing going on in (Judge’s) life except that (she) used to be on TV.” 

During a June appearance on Jeff Lewis’ radio show, Andy Cohen seemed to say Judge wouldn’t return to the franchise. Cohen said, “Tamra’s doing a whole podcast about the behind-the-scenes of the ‘Housewives.’ How do you go on a ‘Housewives’ show when you’re doing a behind-the-scenes about ‘Housewives’?”

In a later appearance, Judge pointed out the similarity of Cohen and Dubrow’s comments to Lewis, and suggested that Dubrow may have been feeding Cohen information about Judge’s podcast in an effort to block Judge from returning to “RHOC.”

When TODAY last chatted with Judge, she said she was “very confused” about the situation. Interestingly enough, Judge said on her podcast that Dubrow texted her to congratulate her on returning to “RHOC.” 

Judge says ‘RHOC’ season seventeen is going to have a “really good” cast

Filming for “RHOC” starts next week, and Judge said on her podcast that “the day after we start filming, I leave for 9 days” on a pre-planned trip to Europe. 

Judge and Mellencamp’s podcast has become popular, and Judge said that they’re “in discussions” about the future of Judge’s role on the podcast while filming “RHOC.”

Judge explained, “they’re thinking it would be too difficult to record while I’m filming, so we’re still in discussions. I’m not gonna be gone from it forever, that’s for sure. I may need to take time away, but we’re negotiating that right now. But don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.”

Season 16 stars Dubrow, Storms Beador, Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter are expected to return, all of which Judge filmed with during her previous tenure on the show. 

Judge noted that “a few new girls” will be joining the cast, and teased, “I think it’s gonna be a really good season.”

Judge continued, “It’s gonna be really, really interesting. I think they’re going to be announced soon, after me, so it’s going to be a really good cast for sure.”

Britney Spears Asks Fans for Privacy After Police Called to Her House

Published

on

Britney Spears is reacting to fans calling authorities to perform a wellness check at her home this week, noting that it’s an invasion of her privacy and a line she’s imploring her fans to not cross again.

The 41-year-old singer on Thursday took to Twitter and made her plea directly to fans after cops paid her home a visit shortly after she deleted her Instagram account. TMZ reported that, for unknown reasons, fans grew concerned about yet another deactivation of her social media account, prompting them to call the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.

But Britney was none too pleased.

“As everyone knows the police were called to my home based on some rank phone calls,” she said in a statement shared on Twitter. “I love and adore my fans but this time things went a little too far and my privacy was invaded.”

She added that deputies never entered her home and quickly realized there was no issue and left immediately. The checkup left her feeling “gaslit” and “bullied,” she said.

“This felt like I was being gaslit and bullied once the incident made it to the news and being portrayed once again in a poor and unfair light by the media,” she continued. “During this time in my life, I truly hope the public and my fans who I care so much about can respect my privacy moving forward. All the love, B.”

It’s the second time in as many months that either Britney or her husband, Sam Asghari, has asked for privacy. Sam made a similar plea back in December after fans expressed concerns over Britney’s social media activity and her absence from public events.

“Social media can be traumatizing. Sometimes it’s good to take a break,” Sam wrote in a series of posts shared to his Instagram Stories. “She has her voice and is a free woman.”

He added, “I have respect for her privacy and I protect it at all times… Out of respect for her privacy, I don’t post her 247. I ask for permission if I ever do.”

That particular post came on the heels of speculation that the pop icon isn’t actually in control of her social media. Britney later returned to Instagram and explained how she accidentally deactivated it.

People Are Sharing Their Buy Now, Pay Later Regrets, And It’s Sadly Relatable

Published

Finally, some people said that using BNPL backfired on them after unexpected events shook up their budgets.

“I made several purchases using BNPL. It worked out for the best… at first. But then things started getting lean and money became tight due to being off work following an on-the-job injury, and then it turned sour on me. I was without an income for a while until my worker’s comp benefits started. I struggled; I focused on my basic expenses and paid the rent and utilities, bought food and gas. My accounts have since been sent to collections and I regularly get texts, phone calls and emails about it…and there is nothing I can do about it, short of filing bankruptcy.

BNPL is NOT like a credit card. You can’t make monthly payments or arrange to skip a payment or use payment protection or whatever. These companies will hound you until the end of time for their money.

It’s just not worth it. It’s really not.”

—Shannon, 43

Jessica Biel celebrates husband Justin Timberlake’s 42nd birthday with sunny photos

Published

Justin Timberlake is officially 42!

The pop star’s wife, Jessica Biel, celebrated her husband’s birthday with a sweet post on Instagram.

“Happy birthday to the person who challenges and inspires me every day. The person who keeps me laughing and creating and risking it all,” she wrote on Jan. 31. “The person who makes the ordinary extraordinary. You know who you are. I love you.”

In the photos, the couple appears to be on a boat somewhere sunny and warm to celebrate the big day.

Timberlake and Biel started dating in 2007 and eventually tied the knot at the Borgo Egnazia resort in Fasano, Italy, in 2012.

They renewed their vows in Italy last year in honor of their 10th anniversary.

When Biel visited TODAY in November 2022 she explained it’d been an “intimate” ceremony with only a “couple of our friends.”

“We literally barely put this thing together. We almost canceled it,” she told TODAY’s Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager. “We thought, ‘Oh, is this silly? Are we going to feel goofy doing this?’ And, actually, it was so moving.”

She added that as parents of two young sons — Silas, 7, and Phineas, 2 — they try to make time for just themselves.

“Justin always says, he goes, ‘We cannot stop dating. We have to keep dating.’ That’s always what he says, and he’s right,” she said. “You got to go on date nights. You have to take that time for yourself. It’s so hard,” she said.

“I’m trying to take my own advice. I’m not good at it. I’m still working on finding that balance in my life.”

In a post for their 10th anniversary on Oct. 19, Timberlake celebrated his marriage to Biel with a sweet note.

“10 years ain’t enough!” he captioned the slideshow. “You make me a better husband and father every day! I love you so much you beautiful human! Run it back!”
