‘RHOC’: Is Tamra Judge’s Son Still with Sarah Rodriguez?

Tamra Judge from The Real Housewives of Orange County had a pretty strong reaction when learned her son Ryan Vieth was engaged to a woman he met on Instagram.

After welcoming Vieth’s girlfriend, Sarah Rodriguez to her home, Judge became emotional when the couple broke some pretty big news. At the time, she learned the couple was not only dating but set a wedding date. Rodriguez revealed that she had three children of her own already and recently lost both of her parents.

While Judge was sympathetic, she was still overwhelmed, especially when Vieth revealed he would be moving a long distance to be with Rodriguez. Eventually, Judge would also learn that Rodriquez was pregnant with her first granddaughter too. Although the couple intended to marry they never seemed to pull the trigger. So where do they stand today?

The couple went their separate ways

Unfortunately, the relationship did not last. Rodriguez gave birth to a daughter named Ava, who is the apple of Judge’s eye. And while the couple intended to marry, they never quite made it to the alter. This was also after Judge set them up with a home in Orange County too.

Even though Judge’s initial reaction to Veith’s engagement was of surprise, she ultimately wanted her son to have a happy family. In 2016 she spoke about the couplet to Bravo’s The Daily Dish.  “Well, Ryan and Sarah are a day-to-day thing,” she said at the time. “They’re doing good today. They went to Disneyland with Ava yesterday. But it’s up and down, and it’s tiring, frustrating, and I just want them to get it together.”

Plus Judge and Rodriguez became close. “Sarah and I are super close, and we’re more like friends than the mother-daughter relationship,” she continued. “So Sarah tends to tell me a lot of things that are going on in their relationship, which kind of at times I’m like, ‘Oh, jeez, I don’t think I want to know this.’ Like, ‘I don’t need to know about every single fight.’ But she doesn’t have a lot of people out here, and she doesn’t have a mom or a dad, so I’ve really stepped in.” 

But share custody of their daughter

While Rodriguez and Vieth are no longer together, they are co-parenting Ava. Judge appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen with an update in 2018. “They’re not together anymore,” Judge said, Bravo’s The Daily Dish reports. “They just share custody of Ava.”

Judge is all about her granddaughter too. “She is her father’s daughter. Let’s just put it that way,” she said. “Yes, she has attitude. Loves her dad. She’s funny. She’s got all these faces she makes. Then she’ll have big smiles and then she’ll make goofy faces,” she said. “She’s just like a goofball, but she’s so pretty — a pretty little girl.”
