According to multiple sources, 49-year-old Judge will once again grace the Bravo reality series with her presence despite objections from her co-stars, Us Weeklyreported.
Housewives Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd reportedly attempted to kick Judge off the show due to past unresolved conflicts.
Although Judge has yet to officially confirm she'll be back next season, the fitness enthusiast and mother posted a telling photo on Monday, January 23 in which she was wearing a trucker hat that read "#HOUSEWIFE" with the following hashtags in the caption: "#yes #stillahousewife."
An insider told Us in November of last year that both Gunvalson and Dodd were "on a campaign" to make sure Judge would not return for the upcoming twelfth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
The pair of women strongly dislike Judge because she had accused Gunvalson of two serious things -- involvement in her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers' cancer claims that are widely believed to be false, and spreading gay rumors about her husband Eddie Judge.
Judge bashed speculation her husband is gay during October 2016 episodes. At the time, the insider explained to the magazine, "The more Housewives dislike someone, the more producers want to keep them."
