Born on September 2, 1967 in California, Tamra Judge grew up with her parents and brother, Kenny in the city of Glendora. As a teen, she attended a local high school from which she eventually graduated from in 1984. Other than that, not much is known about her early life.
Having said that, we do know that she married her first husband, Darren Vieth a few years after her graduation. From there, the two soon welcomed their son, Ryan Vieth into the world. To support the family, the blonde began working as a real estate agent in California- she would continue this position for many years, more specifically up until she was cast in Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County.
By the end of the 90’s, Judge had split with her first husband, and had tied the knot a second time with Simon Robert Barney. With him, she had three children, two sons and a daughter. After working as a real estate agent for many years, she received a big break after landing a role in the popular reality series, The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2006; Judge was in her late thirties at the time.
Joining the cast, Judge made her debut that Fall during the season premiere which aired on November 7, 2007. Aside from her, season three also starred Vicki Gunvalson, Jeana Keough, Lauri Peterson, and Quinn Fry. The original Real House Wives series, The Real Housewives of Orange County proved to be a huge success, drawing in millions of viewers during its broadcast. Thanks to the show’s popularity, Judge was able to make herself known on reality TV.
Since then, Judge has remained on the show for well over ten years- making her one of the longest staying housewives in the series (second to Vicki Gunvalson). Considering that, it’s only natural that she’s earned herself a sizeable fortune from the franchise. One of the most popular reality series on television, it’s no secret that its cast members receive a hefty pay check for their time- in fact, it’s not uncommon for some housewives to receive six digits for starring on the show.
How many zeros are attached to Judge’s pay check? Despite having fought with nearly every lady in the show, she is paid incredibly well- in fact, she’s one of the highest paid on stars in the entire franchise. According to various insider sources, the blonde has been earning upwards of $600,000 per season. Multiply that by ten for ten seasons, and her total earnings from The Real Housewives of Orange County would be roughly $6 million!
In the fall of 2013, the reality star also got her own Bravo mini-series called, Tamra’s OC Wedding, which followed her wedding with Eddie Judge. Premiered on September 2, 2013, the first episode garnered over 1.27 million views in the US. A three-part documentary, its second and third episode drew in 1.44 and 1.40 million viewers respectively. Although ratings for the spin-off were not particularly high, it further cemented her popularity on American television nonetheless.

For instance, she’s been invited as a guest onto the TV talk shows Lopez Tonight (2011) Today (2012), Chelsea Lately (2012), The Ricki Lake Show (2013), and The Doctors (2016).
