Tamra Judge was one of the housewives who was very critical of Vicki Gunvalson's behavior when she was dating Brooks Ayers. Perhaps Tamra had a feeling that he was bad news, as she was the one who got angry when it was revealed that Brooks had lied about having cancer. While Meghan King Edmonds was offended as she knew someone battling cancer, Judge took it personally as she felt that she and Vicki were supposed to be friends. They were supposed to be there for one another and be honest.

The entire season became all about the cancer diagnosis. While filming "The Real Housewives of Orange County," it remained speculation that Brooks had lied about having cancer.

It wasn't until the season wrapped that he was caught lying during an interview. He revealed that he had indeed faked his medical records. He claimed he only did it because he wanted the ladies to get off his back. He claimed to be innocent and still very sick.

According to a new tweet, Tamra Judge is now revealing that she herself is going through a cancer situation. As it turns out, Tamra has been tested positive for melanoma. Earlier this year, Tamra had some skin removed because it looked suspicious. She revealed that it was nothing to worry about. But then she found another dark spot on her buttocks, and she's now sharing that this particular spot is indeed melanoma. Tamra is opening up about this in hopes of encouraging people to get checked.

Cancer warning

"I'm showing you this picture because this is what melanoma looks like. I don't want sympathy; I want you to save YOUR ASS and get your skin checked. This was just a small black flat freckle.... I had no idea! Ill be fine because my faith is strong and my Ass ain't bad either," Tamra Judge explained in the Instagram post, where she shares a picture of her behind while revealing what melanoma looks like.

One can imagine that fans are shocked. Tamra works out, she's healthy, and she has won fitness competitions. It's shocking to think that she's now dealing with this serious issue.

Another story about this illness

Of course, this adds another story of cancer to "The Real Housewives of orange county." First, it was Brooks Ayers' cancer lie.

Then it was Peggy Sulahian's double mastectomy, which caused more questions than answers, and now Tamra's melanoma.
