Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson have been longtime Housewives, starring on Bravo's hit TV franchise, The Real Housewives of Orange County. Both Judge and Gunvalson have starred on the show for 15 years, and now they say it's time to move on.
Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson were the faces of the Housewives franchise started over 15 years ago
Fans of the franchise are used to seeing the drama, however this time, the drama is a little more hectic than usual.
Gunvalson officially quit the show after being demoted in season 14 to just a 'friend' role, and Judge was no exception.

Gunvalson told producers at the season 14 reunion show that she was either "all in, or all out," and that she would never be a "part- time girl".
On Sunday, Judge took to Instagram to relay a similar message.
"It’s been a wild ride, and after all these years, I’m looking forward to life away from the cameras. I was offered a chance to come back to the show in a limited role, but would prefer to walk away on my own terms."
Moments after announcing her exit, Judge purged her social media, getting rid of many RHOC related people
Judge was told she could return to season 15 as a 'friend role', getting only 3 episodes out of the 20. This was a massive slap in the face as she was told she would get only 20,00$ an episode, compared to her 900,000$ season pay check.
Moments after sharing her split on social media, Judge went on to then delete all of her costars, including producer, Andy Cohen.
The only one who made it through the 'unfollow' crossfire was Gunvalson, who made sure to comment her support.
"We have shared so many great and not so great times together and it has been the ride of our lives. Thelma and Louise .... now where do you want to go?!" she wrote.
