Ex-RHOC star Tamra Judge scores real estate license for new career after Bravo firing – The Sun

TAMRA Judge is moving forward with a career in real estate after she was fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

The Sun can exclusively reveal her real estate status is “licensed,” according to the State Of California Department of Real Estate.

Tamra’s license expires on February 13, 2024.

But although Tamra, 52, is now a licensed agent, she has not been employed with a broker company.

The Sun reported Tamra’s real estate license expired on March 11, 2018 after it was first issued in November 2004.

She told Bravo boss Andy Cohen during an Instagram Live after the firing: “I’m just sitting at home studying my real estate because I need a new career."

Tamra was fired from RHOC in January after 12 years on the show.

The Sun previously reported executives attempted to demote her because her salary was too high.

The insider said: “She was making too much money after so many seasons. It wasn’t worth it to them anymore to keep her full-time.”

Other than her real estate gig, Tamra has been promoting products from her company Vena CBD.

Her husband Eddie renewed their business license for their gym CUT Fitness.

Tamra has also appeared on former co-star Vicki Gunvalson’s podcast Whoop it up with Vicki and Bravo star Jeff Lewis’ Sirius XM show.

Vicki announced her firing from housewives one day before Tamra’s termination.

The two posted videos filming a new project in March, as fans speculated they could have a new show in the works.

Tamra has also been dealing with family issues, as her ex-husband, Simon Barney, is battling stage 3 throat cancer.

She has also reconnected with her broken family, as she mended her estranged relationship with daughter Sidney, 21.

Aaron Judge gets rare dose of encouraging Yankees news

TAMPA — Aaron Judge on Friday underwent a scheduled CT scan on his right top rib that the Yankees hoped would provide good news on the outfielder’s stress fracture, which was revealed on March 6.

The test showed progress on Judge’s rib and that a previously unrevealed Pneumothorax issue (collapsed lung) had completely healed.

Judge underwent the test in the morning and then reported to Steinbrenner Field to continue a rehab program that has included light baseball activities.

Looking in from the outside, Tyler Wade said he was impressed with Judge’s physique, but didn’t offer a progress report.

“He looks great. His rehab, as far as I know, has been good,’’ Wade said inside the players’ parking lot while talking with reporters through a chain-link fence. “You know how he is. He doesn’t say much. It’s probably a blessing in disguise with all this stuff going on we get everybody back healthy.’’

Though the Yankees were hopeful Judge didn’t need surgery when discussing the injury in early March, manager Aaron Boone at the time said it was possible based on further testing.

“You could do surgery at some point to remove the rib. I wouldn’t say that is off the table,’’ Boone said on March 6.

Wade not only agrees Steinbrenner Field is the place to be these days, but the utility infielder also is learning from the second baseman DJ LeMahieu while baseball is shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A day after LeMahieu said the Yankees’ spring training complex was keeping him sane by allowing him to work out and participate in baseball activities, Wade echoed the veteran infielder’s words.

“I like coming here. I trust everybody in the facility, everything is clean and people are wearing gloves. I see people once they touch something, they take off the gloves and throw it away,’’ Wade said. “Coming in here, I almost feel this is the safest place to be.’’

Wade is a Southern California resident who opted to remain in the area for as long as the facility remains open. On Friday, he was joined by Clint Frazier, Luis Severino, Mike Ford, Judge and LeMahieu. Judge and Severino, who recently underwent Tommy John surgery, are rehabbing injuries.

Participating in small groups has been beneficial for Wade because he has gotten a closer look at LeMahieu’s attention to detail.

“It’s not necessarily what he is saying, it’s what he is doing. I just watch,’’ Wade said. “It is crazy how routine-orientated this guy and how professional he is. If I look at the clock, I know exactly where DJ is at. His routine is so on point.’’

With the possibility that Steinbrenner Field will be off limits to players at some point due to the coronavirus, Wade might be forced to vacate the Tampa area.

“I don’t know, that is something I would have to think about. Maybe Arizona. There are a lot of guys out there,’’ said Wade, who passes the vast amount of dead time watching Netflix and participating in a Madden video football game tournament with teammates that is in the final stages. “But hopefully since our numbers are very small that is beneficial toward us.’’

Olly Murs says The Voice judges helped him through and ‘kept him busy’ after Caroline Flack’s death – The Sun

OLLY Murs said The Voice judges helped him through and "kept him busy" after Caroline Flack's death.

The singer, 35, was heartbroken after his friend and former Xtra Factor co-presenter, 40, died by suicide last month. 

Speaking ahead of The Voice's semi-final, Olly revealed throwing himself back into work – and getting the support of his fellow judges, actually helped him along the way.

He told The Sun Online: "I think me coming back to work this week and seeing Tom and the coaches was definitely something I feel I needed. It's across the board for all of us I think. We all needed that."

The star then opened up about his grief: "For anyone, if you're having a dark difficult time at home or if you've had some bad news, sometimes it's nice to keep busy and see friends.

"To talk about it but also take your mind away from it for a few moments."

Caroline and Olly hosted The Xtra Factor in 2011 and 2012, and their friendship and witty repertoire saw them become a hit with viewers

After her success on Strictly Come Dancing in 2014, Simon Cowell asked Caroline to host The X Factor alongside Olly in 2015.

Earlier this month, Ollie revealed on the Chris Evans Virgin Radio Breakfast Show that the news still hasn't properly sunk in yet.


EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others.

You're Not Alone.

  • Papyrus, www.papyrus-uk.org, 0800 068 41 41
  • Samaritans, www.samaritans.org, 116 123

He said: “Even just talking about it, it just makes me, I just can't get my head around it, to be honest. I was in Bali, actually.

“I was on holiday with my girlfriend and family. I got the phone call about 2:30 in the morning, so I was actually asleep at the time.

“I just looked at my phone and just kind of in shock and to be honest it has not really definitively sunk in properly. You know, she was an amazing person and great. Yeah, just amazing in every way.  Just a shame that it happened.”

The Voice continues Saturday at 8.30pm on ITV.

Divorce Court's Judge Faith Jenkins Marries Kenny Lattimore

They said “I do”! Judge Faith Jenkins tied the knot with musician Kenny Lattimore in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 8, Us Weekly confirms exclusively.

DeVon Franklin officiated the ceremony at First Congregational Church in downtown L.A., which was attended by 275 guests including Stevie Wonder, MC Lyte, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Grey’s Anatomy star James Pickens Jr. and author Malcolm Gladwell. Wonder sang “You and I” as the bride walked down the aisle.

Jenkins exclusively told Us Weekly that the couple first met on a blind date through Jenkins’ friend, music producer Aaron Lindsey. The judge wanted to find someone to help her record some Christmas music and Lindsey had the perfect person in mind — Lattimore. However, Jenkins admitted that sparks didn’t fly during their first encounter.

“The first time we met was for lunch and we talked for two hours,” Jenkins told Us. “I don’t know that there was a real spark at first but it was a genuinely interesting conversation. Kenny actually thought I wasn’t that interested because I didn’t per se flirt with him. It was lunch! I was just looking for good conversation and to enjoy my turkey club. The flirting would come later! Which it did.”

Lattimore announced his engagement to the attorney via Instagram in September 2019.

“I’m happy to share the exciting news about our engagement today! My fiancée @judgefaithjenkins is known to many of you as the beauty with (a whole lot of) brains. She is indeed that & much more,” the “For You” singer captioned a picture with his arm wrapped around Jenkins. “Faith, I am forever grateful to God for His faithfulness in sending me you. To say you are the total package is a vast understatement. You are powerful and passionate about life and yet your presence brings me so much peace. Your drive and ambition never cease to amaze me and your heart is filled with love & empathy for others. Everything you do on and off tv is done with dignity and grace – it’s why you’re an inspiration to so many, including me.”

He added, “I’m honored you said YES to our forever!”

Jenkins, for her part, posted the same photo on her Instagram where she gushed about the Washington D.C. native.

“Kenny: you are one of the kindest, most genuine souls on the planet,” she penned at the time. “I’ve never met anyone like you. In a world where I was told my standards were too high, you came in my life from day one & exceeded them all! You made me thankful that I refused to settle. You showed me the essence & integrity of true love. The first time you took me by the hand to lead us in prayer I knew this would be different. And I was right.”

After their engagement, the pair wanted to make sure that their relationship was ready for the big commitment through pre-marriage counseling.

“For the most part, once the ring is on you’ve really made the decision about marriage and the counseling is almost an afterthought. For us, we wanted counseling to be at the forefront so we could decide if our core values were as aligned as we thought they were,” Jenkins explained.

Lattimore was previously married to singer Chanté Moore from 2002 to 2011. The former couple are the parents of their 16-year-old son, Kenny Lattimore Jr., who was also a groomsman at the wedding.

Tamra Judge to celebrate International Women’s Day with new CBD product

Tamra Judge wants everyone to feel great this International Women’s Day.

The former “RHOC” star, 52, is gearing up on March 8th to release a new product for women from her CBD company, Vena Wellness.

“It’s basically for women’s health,” Judge teased without revealing the product’s name. “It’s for menstrual cramps, periods, things like that nature and it’s got CBD. It’s got cramp bark. It’s got chasteberry, cinnamon, valerian root in it. It helps with monthly issues that I don’t get anymore because I’m old as f–k!”

The hands-on business owner was involved in every aspect of the new product’s creation.

“We have an office here in Laguna Hills. We ship out of this office. We do our meetings. We figure out our new product. I do a lot of the marketing here and we have customer service,” she said of her role, laughing at what she isn’t involved in — “I don’t do customer service.”

“So I’m fully involved and I’m always looking at new products that we can bring to the table,” she added, noting that the only thing she doesn’t do is production. “We have a partner out of Kentucky that does our manufacturing,” she said.

Judge, who started the business with her husband, Eddie, has no plans to slow down after the product is launched.

“I’m always working on some kind of project,” she noted. “I have multiple strains of income. I mean, I’ve done everything from selling my clothes on eBay to real estate and then the show, social media to Vena to CUT Fitness…so now that I have the extra time cause I’m not filming, and obviously I have a lot of family stuff that I’m dealing with right now, but I know that I need to get something else going.”

All of Judge’s products are available online.

Federal judge lets serial slugger Tiffany Harris go free without bail

No jail can hold her.

A woman who gained infamy after being repeatedly set free without bail on hate crime charges under the state’s new bail reform law has was set free Friday by a federal judge.

Federal Magistrate Judge Robert Levy ordered Tiffany Harris, 30, to be released on her own recognizance from Brooklyn federal court after she was arraigned Friday.

Federal prosecutors had fought to keep Harris in custody on charges of attacking Jewish women in Brooklyn, arguing that she poses an “ongoing” threat to public safety and that she showed no “fear of law enforcement or any other consequences” by randomly assaulting total strangers in three separate incidents.

“The continuing nature of the defendant’s criminal conduct demonstrates that she is responsible in part for the increased unrest and compromised quality of life the residents of the communities within Brooklyn have suffered as a result of the ongoing prevalence of hate crimes,” prosecutors argued in court papers. “Hate crimes such as those committed by the defendant have ramifications that extend far beyond the immediate injuries caused to particular victims.”

Harris’ alleged “campaign of anti-Semitic violence,” as federal prosecutors call it, made her a poster child for soft-on-crime bail laws that took effect on Jan. 1.

Harris was busted on Dec. 27 after allegedly attacking three different Jewish women in Crown Heights — in one of the attacks, she alleged smacked a Jewish woman on the back of the head and shouted “F–k you, Jews!,” court papers state.

Harris was arrested the following day on three counts of third-degree assault — but was let free because the charge is not eligible for bail because of reforms.

On Dec. 29, Harris allegedly struck again — punched a Jewish woman who was carrying her 10-month-old child and holding hands with her 3-year-old child while the trio was crossing a street in Prospect Heights.

Harris was arrested for the second attack and put back on the street on Dec. 30.

But on Dec. 31, Harris allegedly got into a physical altercation with a social worker during a mandatory meeting, court papers state.

Harris was picked up a third time and a judge ordered her to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

On Jan. 3, she was civilly committed at a Brooklyn hospital — two days later the feds filed a sealed criminal complaint charging her with hate crimes for the Dec. 27 assault. She remained in the hospital until she was handed over to federal custody, court papers state.

In a statement, attorneys from the Federal Defenders of New York who represent Harris accused said it is “rare” for defendants to be charged at both the state and federal levels for the same offense and accused US Attorney Richard Donoghue of using Harris’ case as a means to attack New York’s bail laws.

“When federal prosecutors decided to charge Tiffany Harris, the U.S. Attorney publicly announced that they were doing so, at least in part, in order to address shortcomings caused by New York’s bail reform law,” the statement reads. “Tiffany Harris should not be used as a pawn in the federal government’s battle with New York State over bail reform. That will not ensure public safety.”

The US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn declined to comment on the release.
