After announcing their exits from The Real Housewives of Orange County in January, Vicki and Tamra shared photos of themselves filming over the weekend. Now, days later, new details about the ladies’ upcoming show have been revealed.
“They’re having fun,” a source close to Vicki and Tamra told PEOPLE on March 2. “They were approached to do a new show together. They’ve been friends for a very long time, so they have a lot of history. And there’s interest from fans in seeing them on screen again. It felt like the right move. ”
“Vicki and Tamra spent well over a decade working with Bravo. They’re both grateful for that experience, but this is something new and there’s a lot of excitement in that,” the insider continued.
On Sunday, Vicki and Tamra shared photos on their Instagram pages that featured the two of them chatting over glasses of wine. In the caption, they added the “Life after Housewives” hashtag.
“And just like that, I’m back on the horse,” Tamra said in a clip shared to her Instagram Stories.
After starring on RHOC since it began in 2006, Vicki confirmed her departure from the series on January 24. One day later, after starring on the series since season three, Tamra announced she too was leaving.
Following her exit announcement, Tamra revealed she was offered a three-episode return.
“It’s been a wild ride, and after all these years, I’m looking forward to life away from the cameras,” Tamra told 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.”
“Eddie and the kids are very excited. I want to thank all the fans who have offered me their support over the years. It’s meant a lot,” she added.
News of Vicki and Tamra’s new series comes just one week after it was reported that Tamra was in talks to return to RHOC in a “friend” role.
