Tamra Judge & Vicki Gunvalson Both Announce They're Leaving 'Real Housewives of Orange County'

The Real Housewives of Orange County are losing two longtime cast members.

Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson have both announced their time on the Bravo reality show is over and they will not be returning for the upcoming 15th season.

Tamra announced her departure on Saturday (January 25). She joined the RHOC during it’s third season in 2007 and is currently the longest-running full-time cast member in Housewives history.

“It’s been a wild ride, and after all these years, I’m looking forward to life away from the cameras,” Tamra shared with People. “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.”

The day before, Vicki announced that she is leaving the show. She was the “OG of the OC,” being with the show since it premiered in 2006. In season 14, she was demoted to a “Friend of the Housewives” role.

“I will always be the OG of the OC, but it’s time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County. It’s been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want thank all of you for your support, for your love and for ‘whooping it up’ with me along the way,” Vicki wrote on Instagram. “I’ve been working on new projects that will be exciting, empowering and inspirational. My podcast with Westwood One will be launching soon and I will have much more to say about this on ‘Whoop it up with Vicki.’ I hope you will join me with my new journey so please stay tuned. I love all my fans, and I want to thank Bravo and Evolution for this incredible experience which my family and I have will never forget.”
