Dr Oz: Real Housewives Confessions
They’re bold and brash on Bravo, but the Real Housewives saved some of their health scares and secrets with Dr Oz. From The Real Housewives of Orange County, stars Vicki, Alexia, Tamra, Gretchen and Heather opened up wtih Dr Oz about their relationships and whether Plastic Surgery Caused Cervical Cancer.
The Real Housewives of Orange County talked openly about their experiences with Plastic Surgery, though surprisingly some of the women claimed they hadn’t had any work done (do you believe them?). Tamra spoke up with Dr Oz about her recent cancer scare and the shocking reason that could be behind it.
Dr Oz: Plastic Surgery Caused Cervical Cancer?
Tamra shared the story of her breast implant procedure years ago. Things went fine for years, but she eventually decided to have her implants removed. She shared a list of several reasons, including that they were too large. That’s why she first had the implants downgraded to a smaller size.
But then came the health scare that had the Housewives wondering if Plastic Surgery Caused Cervical Cancer. After her divorce, Tamra found lumps in her breast, which doctors determined were signs of Cervical Cancer.
As a divorced mother of three, she worried about her family and how her cancer diagnosis would affect them. But she went through an operation to have the cancer removed and is having regular checkups twice annually.
Real Housewives: Tamra’s Cancer Scare Update
Despite the drama and high stakes of the ladies’ reality show, The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra actually managed to keep her cancer scare a behind the scenes secret. Even though the women talked candidly about cheating, divorce, and plastic surgery, somehow Tamra managed to keep her cancer off camera.
She said that the process was still too raw and emotional, and she hadn’t even told her family about it. She was scared and she hoped that not talking about it would make it go away, which I’m sure Dr Oz would tell you is not good medical advice.
These days, Tamra is happy to report that she is healthy and cancer-free.
