Tamra Judge torna trionfante in “Real Housewives of Orange County” due anni dopo essere stata abbandonata come membro del cast a tempo pieno. Dopo la stagione 14, Judge ha annunciato che non sarebbe tornata in “RHOC”, insistendo sul fatto che era stata una sua decisione di smettere. “Non vedo l’ora di vivere lontano dalle telecamere”, ha detto a People. “Mi è stata offerta la possibilità di tornare nello show in un ruolo limitato, ma preferirei andarmene alle mie condizioni”. Invece di strappare le estensioni e riattaccare le Louboutin, Judge si è tenuto occupato dopo aver lasciato “Real Housewives”. Ha lanciato un podcast e si è concentrata sulle sue attività, Vena CBD e CUT Fitness.
So of course, the reality TV door swung wide open for Judge, allowing Judge to strut back into the fray. And with that, another door closed and Judge was forced to also close a major chapter in her life.
Tamra Judge's gym didn't survive the pandemic
Tamra Judge's bank account was significantly boosted thanks to her years on "Real Housewives of Orange County." Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Judge is worth a cool $3 million and was pulling in $325,000 per season during filming. There have been no reports regarding her upcoming contract agreement and salary, but here's hoping that her agent was a good negotiator.
Like many others worldwide, the reality star and her husband, Eddie Judge, were hit hard financially during the pandemic. "Starting a small business is challenging. Starting a small business with your spouse is rewarding," Eddie posted on Instagram in May 2021. "I love spending quality time with my partner, wife, and best friend. I couldn't imagine it any other way," he concluded.
Unfortunately, People reported, the gym didn't survive the pandemic, and after 10 years of hard work, sweat, and tears, they were forced to lay down the dumbbells and turn off the lights. Tamra insisted the timing of the gym's closure had nothing to do with her return to "Real Housewives" however. She said the business had been ticking along great before COVID-19 hit, but ultimately the lockdown proved its demise. "It is what it is," Tamra told Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave during an episode of their podcast, Two Ts in a Pod. "It's sad. It's a loss. It's 100% a loss. It's hard."
