The new year just got started, and it’s already been a doozy for Tamra Judge. The Real Housewives of Orange County star has been open about her skin cancer diagnosis over the past few months, and now she’s sharing her new malady with fans on Instagram.
The Bravo-lebrity is continuing her trend of transparency and opening up about her newest health problem.
Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge has had a rough go of things over the past few months, and things seem to be getting worse. The famous trainer is out of commission once again after breaking her foot this week. While the specifics of how she sustained the injury are currently unclear, she shared the news that it had happened with fans in her usually open way.
The star posted a photo to her Instagram showing followers that she will be rocking a knee scooter for the next few weeks. “Check out my new ride,” she captioned the photo. Following it up with “#brokenfoot.”
The star also posted a few more shots of the scooter to her Instagram story, captioning one of them “FML” and included a photo of the boot she’ll be sporting during her recovery as well.
The injury likely comes as quite a blow to Tamra who — aside from her RHOC paycheck — makes her living as a bodybuilder and trainer at her gym Cut Fitness. It’s going to be hard for her to hit the gym while wearing a boot and using a scooter to get around! Not to mention that she’s already taken some time off from training in recent months to deal with another health problem.
The Real Housewife had to step back from her work back in Aug. of 2017 after she was diagnosed with skin cancer due to a melanoma mole on her butt. A biopsy of the mole showed that she had evidence of both basal cell and squamous cell cancers. Then, earlier this year, she was back at the doctors for a similar mole she found on her chest.
“First my butt now my b**b Whole new meaning to T&A #skincheck #keeponkeepingon #underMeb**b,” she captioned a post-op image on her Instagram.
Luckily, she seems to be in good spirits about it all.
Her upbeat attitude about all of her health issues these days is especially impressive given the other drama going on in her life. Her husband, Eddie Judge, recently underwent heart surgery following a Spartan Race in which the couple participated. She wasn’t entirely forthcoming about what exactly was wrong with Eddie’s heart, but based on her hashtags fans with medical knowledge deduced that he likely “has an irregular heart rhythm (afib)” for which doctors performed “a cardiac ablation.”
“It requires an ICU stay afterwards, and from what I understand can be pretty exhausting,” wrote Reddit user Pm_me_baby_pig_pics at the time.
The star also clapped back at media outlets reporting she was gunning for her own spin-off show (sorry, Tamra!). “Lies!” she scrawled over a report claiming she was done with RHOC after years as a cast member.
