Shannon Beador is the only member of the "Tres Amigas" left on the Real Housewives of Orange County. The reality star's two besties Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge will not be a part of the long-running Bravo series' upcoming 15th season. Shannon, 55, is reportedly "nervous" to return to filming following her friends' departures.
Vicki, 57, Tamra, 52, and Shannon's strong friendship has been dubbed as the "Tres Amigas" by fans and viewers throughout the years.
A source told HollywoodLife.com on February 15, “Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, Shannon and Kelly Dodd are all happy to be back filming RHOC. They all started filming this week, some separately and some together."
The insider added, “It’s too early to tell what everyone’s real storyline are going to be, but they all know new faces are coming. They were all left feeling nervous after Vicki and Tamra were not returning, so they’re thankful to be coming back. Kelly really wants one of her friends to join the new cast and the ladies are still waiting to see who the new ladies are as they haven’t begun filming, but they all gave recommendations.”
“Shannon is a bit nervous to not have Vicki and Tamra there. She’s sad about it, but she knows she’ll find her own groove and new storyline," the source explained. "She’s happier and more in love than she’s ever been, her business is doing well, so she has a lot going on. It seems like she will have no choice but to talk to Kelly about moving past everything at some point.”
Vicki and Tamra have both decided to pursue other passions after their Bravo exits. Vicki will be hosting a new podcast called Whoop It Up with Vicki. The mother of two hinted that her new show will be full of untold stories from RHOC, her take on pop culture and issues she is passionate about. Tamra revealed during a chat with Andy Cohen earlier this month that she is renewing her real estate license. "I’m probably not going back to real estate, but I have to renew my license every four years and I always do it 'cause I’m always looking for a backup plan," Tamra said.
