There have been numerous reports that RHOC stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson will not return to the show for season thirteen. But a network insider is telling us that these reports are totally bogus.
“Many people were very confused what would happen after Vicki threatened to quit at the reunion,” our source exclusively shares. “She’s not going anywhere.”Â Our insider calls the rumors “stupid” and points out, “every year this happens.”
“The network is ecstatic that the women have finally reconciled,” our show source continues. “This will help the show’s ratings. Everyone at Bravo is fully aware how much this season was lacking.”
“Tamra isn’t leaving either,” our insider said. “She plans to show the renovation of her new house and Jeff Lewis is hoping to lead the project.”
“They start filming next month,” our source adds.
We reached out to Tamra and she tells us, laughing, “Ya I’m coming back. Unless they fire me 😂” She said the same goes for Vicki.
Our other insider says the likelihood of these two being fired is probably “unlikely” and that the network is aware of what big cast changes do and they aren’t willing to risk what happened with RHONY.
And as we previously reported, the reconciliation was REAL. I questioned whether or not it was real, but I have been assured that it was “unexpected” but “authentic.” In my opinion, this could lead up to a really great season now that Shannon and Tamra are getting along with Vicki. They are definitely funny together.
AllAboutTheTea also exclusively reported Vicki and Tamra will not be leaving the show.
