Tamra Judge: I’m Scared My Son Is Gonna Kill Himself!

On last week’s The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge was exposed as a two-faced manipulator and a “snake.”

She had some real fallout to deal with after the other Housewives compared notes and realized that Tamra had been starting drama left and right.

But before she and Shannon could get into it, Tamra had another issue much closer to home.

Her eldest son, Ryan Vieth, is a deeply troubled man.

Hearing him admit his devastatingly low self-esteem issue as he discusses his mental and emotional health was a blow to Tamra’s heart.

In fact, she confesses that it makes her want to die — and she fears that Ryan could take his own life.

1. Tamra has some real concerns

Her eldest child, Ryan Vieth, is a deeply troubled man. On top of behavioral, mental, and emotional issues, he’s a grown man in his thirties who is obsessed with the opportunities that he was denied due to his background.

2. Ryan’s issues are clear

On top of things like leaked texts showing him making vicious threats against the mother of his child, his alarming social media posts, and his arrest for domestic violence, he clearly has self-esteem issues. So after Tamra got him to go see a therapist, Tamra was invited to a session to address Ryan’s childhood.

3. Tamra feels like she failed him

“I carry guilt ’cause I feel like I let him down,” Tamra admits through tears. “I look at my kids now and the opportunities that they have. I got two kids in college now. Ryan never… He ran out of the house at 18 ’cause he couldn’t stand his stepdad. He doesn’t want to be controlled, he doesn’t want to be told what to do, so he fights life.”

4. Ryan says …

Obviously, Ryan envies his siblings — who were born into a wealthy household rather than going from a loosely supervised child of a young, working, single mom to one living in a structured and affluent home at 13. That was a jarring change. But Ryan also talks about how he resents that his biological father has missed so many of his and his young daughter’s milestones.

5. Speaking of Ryan’s daughter, Ava

“You are a good dad,” Tamra assures Ryan through tears, telling the therapist: “But I see that he’s putting all of his energy — all of it — into her. He is so troubled by his past that he doesn’t want her to have that life.” That is not uncommon for parents who had rough lives and want their children to have a better future.

6. Tamra tells the camera

“I can look at my son’s eyes and see he’s just not himself,” she says during a confessional. “He just wants to protect this little girl so much, like just smother her, and he doesn’t let other people in. He isolates himself with Ava, and it’s starting to concern me.”

RHOC Cast to Tamra Judge: You’re the One Causing All Our Problems!

Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County saw a lot of accusations about Kelly Dodd.

Kelly being Kelly, she of course retaliated, putting her perceived enemies on blast.

But once the dust settled, the Housewives started to explain themselves and compare notes.

Most of the drama, they discovered, didn’t originate with Kelly, or Vicki, or Braunwyn.

They realized that Tamra Judge had been the Iago whispering manipulative messages into their ears the entire time.

Worst of all was watching Shannon Beador’s eyes tear up as she realized that she had been betrayed by a woman she loves like a sister.

1. Uh-oh, Tamra!

Tamra Judge ended up getting called out by friends and frenemies alike on this week’s The Real Housewives of Orange County!

2. Let’s begin

You may remember that last week, people discussed the “bar fight” rumor involving Kelly and another woman who was described as hanging all over Dr. Brian. Well, all of the ladies were discussing it, and Braunwyn tried to clear the air with what she’d heard directly from Kelly. Tamra then led Kelly to believe that Braunwyn had brought it up, leading Kelly to reduce Braunwyn to tears.

3. The feud didn’t last

The ladies met up (with Emily to give Braunwyn some backup), which is where Braunwyn explained her position. Kelly felt bad for chewing her out.

4. Then, Kelly was shocked

This is when Braunwyn felt that she should know that it was Tamra, not Vicki, who first spread the Train Rumor. (This is debatable, since Vicki kept hinting about knowing something about Vicki, but yes, it was Tamra who first brought up the T-word)

5. Kelly was NOT happy

“Tamra always acts like she’s my best friend,” Kelly accuses. “She’s the biggest two face!”

6. Thinking back, she sees a pattern

“I think this is part of Tamra’s pattern,” Kelly says. “She is somebody that likes to throw a little bomb and then walk away.”

90 Day Fiance Season 7 Premiere Recap: So Much Lingerie, So Much Drama

TLC is gradually being dominated by a single franchise and we couldn’t be happier.

Now that 90 Day Fiance has returned for Season 7, the premiere is already telling us more about the couples than the trailers ever did.

A lot of viewers already have a favorite couple, and for once, it’s the pair with a massive gap in both age and finances.

The premiere featured lingerie, a sex toy shop, and a couple who bonded over a shared love of beekeeping.

Take a look at the premiere highlights below in our recap, and brace yourself for the rest of the season.

It’s only going to get more dramatic from here!

1. Anna and Mursel!

First of all, something that we did not know from the trailers is that they have a shared love of bees and beekeeping. This isn’t just a quirk — it’s how they met on social media (specifically, Facebook, because they’re a little bit old).

2. They are clearly in love

Mursel hugs anna 90 day fiance s7
Despite some obstacles, which we will get to in a moment, it’s obvious how much they care about each other. Unfortunately, love alone isn’t enough, and this could lead to mutual heartbreak.

3. First up: the language barrier

Anna with mursel 90 day fiance s7
90 Day Fiance viewers had flashbacks to Paul and Karine as they watched these two use translation apps to communicate. (But hey, Paul and Karine have more or less worked out, for better or for worse). There’s that, plus Mursel’s religious aversion to drinking, but it sounds like Anna will take that over the dick pics that she kept seeing while trying to date American guys in Nebraska.

4. But here’s their big problem

Mursel’s conservative family back in Turkey would not be okay with Anna already having children. He wants to keep this a secret from them. Of course, he’s on reality television, so we’d like to understand why they chose to air their story under the circumstances. Maybe it was for Mursel to give himself a countdown clock until they find out anyway.

5. Blake and Jasmin

For these two, we’re going to have to wait until the next episode to offer some highlights. 90 Day Fiance does like to juggle which couples are covered in each episode.

6. Emily and Sasha

90 Day Fiance Season 7 introduces Emily, a 28-year-old from Oregon, and Sasha, a 31-year-old from Russia.

Kelly Dodd Accused of Bar Fight, Pushing Mom Down the Stairs!

Last April, it leaked from the set of The Real Housewives of Orange County that there was a new rumor floating around.

The rumor, then attributed to Tamra Judge, claimed that Kelly Dodd had pushed her mom down the stairs.

The result was a renewal of the intense feuding that had temporarily abated after Kelly and Vicki had hugged it out.

Now, we see the context of how that rumor was blurted out on camera.

And that’s not all that the Housewives had to say about Kelly. Did she really fracture some woman’s hand?

1. It’s Kelly vs Vicki … again!

Kelly dodd and vicki gunvalson
The Real Housewives of Orange County reignited a classic feud that started with Kelly skipping Vicki’s party and ended with Vicki spreading yet another rumor about Kelly. What a mess.

2. Let’s start at the beginning

Much of the episode may have been about Kelly Dodd vs The Tres Amigas after their uneasy truce, but Gina’s increasing frustrations were the B-story, and the episode starts with her.

3. She was allegedly spotted making out with Matt

Matthew kirschenheiter and gina kirschenheiter
Matt, her ex husband, from whom she was divorcing. They were seen locking lips at a bar. We get it, he’s hot, and this was filmed in April, so it was a couple of months before the harrowing night on which he was arrested after allegedly striking, throwing, dragging, and threatening Gina in her home. They were on much better terms in April, despite the divorce.

4. Obviously, the ladies confronted her about it

They were picking out costumes for Vicki’s over-the-top tea party, and Tamra straight-up asked the question about the alleged makeout. “Did you touch his wiener?” Gina admitted that she had, a little. Oh, Gina. She also picked out a Mad Hatter costume, which may have been a little on the nose, because hooking up with your ex is not always a sane choice.

5. Gina had other family concerns

We also saw her take Sienna to an occupational therapist to help with sensory issues that were impacting fine motor skills. Gina confessed to feeling guilty that the divorce was distracting her from immediately noticing when a child is struggling. That’s a fair concern, though also Gina has three kids, and some parents just assume that their kids are fine for YEARS because having three kids is overwhelming. Gina could be doing way worse.

6. So, here’s where Kelly comes into play

Tamra was getting her glow-up for the party, and she contacted Kelly to see how she’s feeling about it. Kelly’s feelings are not positive. She doesn’t want to celebrate Vicki. Making peace is, after all, not the same thing as cheering someone. She also said that she was en route to Los Angeles.
