Dr Oz: The Real Housewives of Orange County Cancer Scare
On a previous Dr Oz Show, The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki, Alexis, Tamra, Gretchen and Heather, joined Dr Oz to reveal their health and fitness secrets (you can read about that show here: Dr Oz Real Housewives of OC). If you saw this previous show, you also saw a few of the housewives admit to plastic surgery while other claimed they were all-natural. Tamra even discussed her Cervical Cancer battle.
Doctor Oz said the women coming clean about their plastic surgeries made this show one of his most controversial shows this year. During that show, one housewife, Tamra, revealed her shocking health confession—cancer.
Dr Oz: Tamra’s Cervical Cancer Scare
Years ago, Tamra got implants. At that time, she was okay with them. Dr Oz asked Tamra why she decided to remove them. Tamra stated that she had a long list of reasons why she got her implants removed, the first being that she felt they were too large for her body. At first, she just had them downsized.
Then she had a health scare.
A year into her divorce, she found lumps in her breast and went to the doctor, where they found cervical cancer. At first she was scared, but then she decided she was ready to take over her body. She was going through a divorce and had 3 kids and didn’t want them to be alone. She went through the operation and the cancer was removed, but she now has to go back every 6 months for a checkup.
Dr Oz asked Tamra why she didn’t bring up her cancer scare on the show, considering they talked about everything else like, cheating, implants etc… Tamra said she didn’t discuss it on the show because it was too new and she was so emotional about it. Her mother and kids didn’t even know about it at the time. For her, it was so scary. She figured if she didn’t talk about it, it would go away.
The good news is that Tamra is fully healthy today.
