After an eventful weekend with Vicki Gunvalson announcing her departure from RHOC, Tamra Judge followed suit and announced she was done as well.

In the case of any Bravo star ever, the former cast members always like to post about how they’ve decided to “move on” from whatever franchise they may have been a part of.  But when Vicki Gunvalson announced her departure from RHOC late Friday night, Tamra Judge followed suit on Saturday.  You’re telling me these two both decided to leave the show on their own and happened to decide on it within hours of one another?

Tamra took to her Instagram to announced she was leaving and said, “Verified
It’s been a wild 12 years . But it’s time for me to move on. Im sad to go but I’m very excited about my future.”  The typos are her own.

But in true Tamra fashion, she quickly went through and unfollowed a bunch of Bravo people – including the accounts for Andy Cohen, Bravo, Evolution (the production company), and even her co-stars Shannon Beador and Braunwyn Windham-Burke.  Vicki got to stay followed by Tamra, how generous.

Speaking of Vicki, in the comments of Tamra’s post, Vicki said that the two have shared many good times together and that it was a wild ride. “Thelma and Louise …. now where do you want to go?!”  Something tells me Tamra wants to go sign a contract on E! just to anger Andy.

Whatever the case may be, Andy wasn’t kidding about a cast shakeup.  With the addition of Braunwyn last year, the group dynamic certainly changed.  Some of the veteran cast members just didn’t seem to mesh anymore.  Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter fit well in the group and had interesting storylines…but Vicki and Tamra had the same old tales.

I love that Tamra isn’t handling this well, and can’t wait to see what happens in the next few days.  Something tells me Tamra is going to start spilling secrets she isn’t contractually bound to keep.  Will she be calling Vicki’s contacts at Radar?  Something tells me she might…

The Real Housewives of Orange County will be back later this year…
