Tamra Judge isn’t feeling her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars decision to film together for season 15 amid the current quarantine restrictions.
The former RHOC star dubbed Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Wyndham-Burke, and Emily Simpson’s recent reunion “ignorant.”
As we previously reported, Shannon, Kelly, Braunwyn, and Emily got together for a makeshift filming session at Shannon’s house. The ladies donned masks and claimed they were “following the rules,” but their selfies tell a much different story.
The ladies threw the social distancing rule of remaining 6 feet apart from each other to the wind when they cozied up for several group selfies.
To make matters worst, the OC Housewives posted all about it on social media leaving many fans enraged and upset.
However, it wasn’t just RHOC fans who were upset by it all.
“I saw it posted, and I just put a hand over my face because I’m just like, ‘Who does that?’ You don’t say we’re social distancing and [write] we’re following the rules, and your faces are this close from each other,” Tamra explained to HollywoodLife. “It just wasn’t the smartest move on their part to post that publicly. To do it, period!”
Tamra went on to say that there’s no way the Bravo cameras are rolling – a claim confirmed by a HollywoodLife source.
“I can’t imagine they’re filming right now because the camera crew, they’re all union. They have the strictest guidelines. So there’s no way,” Tamra added.
“I told Vicki [Gunvalson], I could see it, [the cast was] like, ‘Oh my God, we have to get this drama right now! We have to show everybody that we have masks on’ so they’re going to film it with their iPhone,” she said.
Apparently, the RHOC cast “didn’t see anything wrong,” with ignoring social distancing guidelines, according to a source.
“Kelly [Dodd], Shannon [Beador], Emily [Simpson] and Braunwyn [Windham–Burke] got together last weekend on their own and filmed. Everything was self-filmed, and it was actually the ladies’ idea to do it. The ladies hadn’t seen each other in person since March when Bravo stopped filming [due to the coronavirus],” a source revealed.
Another major issue fans took with the RHOC cast was how close they were getting to Kelly, who’s been exposed to a ton of germs while traveling between Orange County and New York.
“The ladies from RHOC were not at all concerned to be with Kelly Dodd last weekend. Kelly came to town for a little over a week from New York to see Jolie and her mom. The ladies have all been staying home and didn’t see anything wrong with what they did. They’ve all stayed in communication on text daily and really missed Kelly,” one source explained.
A separate source added, “[The cast] loves Kelly dearly. They feel Kelly is entitled to do whatever she wants to do just like they are when it comes to social distancing and her beliefs, but nobody was worried. They’ve really missed being together and filming and can’t wait to get back together when this is over, as they were really just getting going [on Season 15].”
The Real Housewives of Orange County is expected to return to Bravo for season 15 in late 2020.
