If there is one thing that Tamra Judge loves, it’s drama. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star was let go from the franchise after 12 long seasons. Despite being known as a villain, many fans thought the show couldn’t survive without her. In some ways, it kind of hasn’t. The two seasons following her departure have been anything but interesting. Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke made season 15 unbearable. And Heather Dubrow’s great return for this season was anything but.
Now that Tamra is off the show, a girl’s gotta make a living. So she decided to do what she does best – talk about Real Housewives. She started a podcast with another former housewife, Teddi Mellencamp, called Two T’s In A Pod. On the show, they talk about all the franchises and have on current and former housewives as guests. Naturally, Tamra has gotten herself into some hot water with her opinions. On one episode, she said Heather should stop talking about money. On another, she accused Heather of using her kids for a storyline this season. Naturally, Heather wasn’t very happy with her former castmate.
As reported by Heavy, fans on Twitter wanted to know Tamra’s thoughts about Heather saying on her own podcast that Tamra coming back to RHOC “doesn’t work.” Tamra quickly responded by tweeting a past RHOC confessional where she said, “B**** is fighting with the wrong person.”
The question stems from Heather’s comments about Tamra on a recent episode of Heather Dubrow’s World. Heather claimed that Tamra was trying to “stay relevant” and build her brand with the podcast. She noted that she can’t fault Tamra for doing so but she didn’t appreciate some of the things Tamra said about her. Heather wondered, “There’s just been a couple of things that I’ve heard that I’ve gone, ‘Why say that? Why do that?’”
Heather added that she felt “very hurt” that Tamra was seemingly putting her podcast above their friendship. She also suggested that it wouldn’t make sense for Tamra to return to the show because of her pod. Said Heather, “At this point, how would you have someone back who just talks about the show all the time? Once you become someone who talks about shows, especially a show you were on, how can you then go back to that show? It doesn’t work.” So, Tamra can’t have a podcast but Heather can? Make it make sense.
Either way, fans on Reddit were abuzz with the latest in Tamra and Heather’s feud. One commented, “Pretty sure this is all a ploy to get Tamra back on the show. Still not tuning in to Teddi’s podcast but nice try Tamra.” Another added, “I’m a big fan of the podcast. They’re very generous with giving us production secrets & backstory context of their respective shows. Really rooting for Tamra’s return to the OC!” Finally, one user was adamant that Tamra needs to be back on the show. They wrote, “Can production understand that bringing Tamra back to made amends with Shannon [Beador] and take on Heather is the only way to save this show? Season 16 was BRUTAL! Let’s have a great Season 17! BRING BACK TAMRA!”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK TAMRA SHOULD COME BACK TO RHOC? DOES HER PODCAST RUIN HER CHANCE TO RETURN? IS HEATHER RIGHT THAT TAMRA IS TRYING TO STAY RELEVANT? ARE YOU TEAM TAMRA OR HEATHER?
