Tamra Judge from 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' is 'freaking out' over husband's fifth heart surgery in six months
The actress's husband, Eddie, has had five heart surgeries in the matter of months and as per sources, is really fighting for life post the most recent one.
'The Real Housewives of Orange County' star Tamra Judge has been dealing with ongoing medical family drama with regards to the health of her husband, Eddie Judge, as he recently underwent a fifth heart procedure in just months; and as per recent reports, Eddie has been fighting for his life post the surgery.
His latest procedure happened this week, which was to treat atrial fibrillation, and post that, Radar Online reported that Tamra's husband is “really scared right now.” “He doesn’t want to die, and although docs assured him that they will correct the condition eventually, he knows that it is not looking good. This is his fifth procedure this year,” a source close to the Judge couple said.
As per the source, Eddie's wife — the 50-year-old Tamra — is even more freaked out than he is. “Tamra is, of course, freaking out," revealed the source. “She doesn’t know what she would do if she lost Eddie, and the kids are also really worried.”
The insider also shared about how Eddie and Tamra had decided to take cameras along this medical journey of theirs, which is going to be showcased on this upcoming season that premieres in July.
“They brought cameras to his scary procedure this week, and are going to include the footage in the upcoming season, even though they have to edit it in,” the insider told Radar. “Tamra’s friends think she is absolutely insane for wanting to make his health crisis a part of this upcoming season!”
But Tamra's freaking out hasn't been a new development, as she was quite concerned about her husband's surgery before he underwent the procedure itself. After the surgery, on Tuesday, she had taken to Instagram to post a series of snaps from a California hospital, just to let her fans and followers know that her husband has been through a fifth procedure in the last six months.
Her post was the photo of a heart model at the Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, California, with the caption, “Good thoughts”.
Even on her Instagram story, she wrote, “Praying this will be the end of @eddiejudge heart condition #ablation#2 I love you babe,” over a photo of her holding her hubby’s hand.
The surgery had seemed to have gone well, as post the procedure, Tamra had shared another snap of her husband on her Instagram story, which showed the back of Eddie clothed in a robe. “He’s up and mooning the nurses," the star had quipped along with the photo.
Speaking of her current frantic paranoia over her husband's recovery, another insider also told Radar Online, “Tamra is very worried and this is his fifth procedure to fix his atrial fibrillation in his heart. She is hoping that this procedure is the final one but his health issue is followed very closely throughout the season and it is on the first episode. Cameras are also there with him at hospital and this is what Eddie wanted. Everyone is praying for the best and he is believed to still be in recovery.”
Season 13 of 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' premieres on Monday, July 16 9/8c on Bravo.
