Tamra Judge Reportedly Returning To ‘RHOC’ As A ‘Friend’ For Season 16!

Casting news for the upcoming sixteenth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County continues to emerge. According to a new report, Tamra Judge, who did not return last season, is returning to the series as a "friend" of the series.

Reporter Anthony Dominic revealed on Twitter, “I’m told Tamra will be a friend of the cast in some capacity. Which explains her recently saying she wouldn’t return full time. #RHOC.”

Last week, Judge revealed via a Q&A Instagram session that she would like to return as a “friend” along with Heather Dubrow.

She wrote, “I’d come back as Heather’s “friend” that sounds like a fun roll.”

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, and Kelly Dodd are not returning to RHOC for Season 16. According to reports, Bravo decided not to renew their contracts.

A spokesperson confirmed the news to Variety about Windhand-Burke, Lyn Vargas, and Dodd’s departures. 

Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson, however, are all returning to RHOC for Season 16. They will be joined by former Housewife Heather Dubrow, who originally left the series in 2017 after five seasons. Variety added that one or two new women will also join the cast.

A few days ago, it was reported that Braunwyn’s best friend Noella Bergener is joining the cast for Season 16. 

“Noella is coming on board as a cast member for the new season, though Braunwyn will not be returning,” a source told The Sun. “They tested her out before the firing decisions were made. She has good chemistry with other potential new cast members.”
