Tamra Judge of The Real Housewives of Orange County has decided that reality television is not the place for her anymore. Judge took to social media to announce that she would be stepping back from her housewife role.

Judge is no stranger to being in the middle of all the drama on the Bravo show and has quickly become one of the most popular of the housewives. While she has had her share of hardships with her co-stars and has had to live through a messy divorce, the California woman also tries to keep it fun and positive with her co-stars, even stealing a cheeky kiss once in a while, which her husband, Eddie Judge, approves of.

Fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County can not seem to catch a break as another housewife has decided to leave. Judge took to her Instagram account to announce to her followers she would also be giving up her orange and not return to the Bravo franchise. In her post, the reality star stated that it had been a crazy 12 years, but the time had come for her to move on. A source close to E! revealed that she decided not to wrap up her storyline for the new season. Judge closed out her social media post by saying she was excited for her future and was thankful for her fans.

According to the E! source, Bravo producers had offered Judge a chance to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County for three episodes to close out her story and say goodbye, but she evidently turned it down. Judge’s announcement comes only one day after her friend and co-star, Vicki Gunvalson, announced she would be leaving the show after 14 years. While Gunvalson announced she would be taking part in a new podcast called “Whoop it up with Vicki”, Judge has been a bit more secretive about her future endeavors.

Fans are still trying to gather their thoughts after learning about losing not one but two of the Orange County housewives. The season 15 cast has not been formally announced yet, but fans are hoping that Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke stay put. While change is a part of life, it will take Bravo viewers some time to come to grips that they will no longer see two beloved characters on Bravo anymore.
