Tamra Judge is taking some major jabs at the Real Housewives of Orange County season 15 cast.
The former RHOC star appeared on The Weekly Scoop With CJ via Instagram Live, where she shared her feelings about the current OC Housewives and what changes she thinks Bravo will make for season 16.
To start, Tamra revealed that she didn’t think the RHOC season 15 cast was “as strong as it could’ve been.”
She then revealed that she believes there will be a “big shakeup” next season before adding who she doesn’t think will be back for season 16.
“I do think there’s going to be a shakeup. A big shakeup. … I only see clips on Instagram, the highlights, and I see the comments,” she noted. “I don’t [think Emily Simpson or Elizabeth Vargas will be back]. There’s no shortage of storyline on [Braunwyn]. She’s not going anywhere.”
As for Kelly Dodd, Tamra admitted she’s “curious” to see what moves Bravo makes for season 16.
“I’ll be curious to see what happens because the viewers and the public have been very vocal [about not wanting Kelly back],” she confessed.
“It’s one of those things — sometimes she is good TV, and then there’s that other part,” Tamra added, before saying Kelly has “an evil heart.”
“That girl has to be so damaged so bad inside. You have to feel sorry for her because why is she so evil?” Tamra wondered aloud.
Speaking of season 16, Tamra also teased her possible return to RHOC in 2021.
“There’s a lot of buzz that I’ll be asked back. I have not gotten a formal offer yet. And if I do get a formal offer, I’m not telling anybody. … I’m just gonna walk on,” she quipped, noting that former bestie Shannon Beador “better hope I don’t come back.”
When it comes to who she thinks is the most “real” on RHOC, Tarma noted, “I think that Gina is extremely real. I feel like Gina is who she is. I don’t feel like she’s calculated. … I feel like Shannon is very self-produced. Kelly is real; what you see is what you get. … I think Braunwyn is real. I think that she exposes a lot; I think that she has a lot going on in her life.”
As for her dream RHOC cast, Tamra said, “Dream cast [would be] Heather [DuBrow], Vicki [Gunvalson], Shannon — just because I want to give her a piece of my mind — Braunwyn and Gina. I think that would be a really good cast. And Meghan [King] too. I really like Meghan, but Meghan doesn’t live in Orange County anymore.”
Meanwhile, Tamra also touched upon her ongoing feud with Kelly Dodd.
Earlier this month, Tamra and Kelly got into a nasty feud on social media after Tamra criticized Kelly for comments she made on RHOC.
“She went out and ripped apart my business, saying it’s a multi-level scheme. It’s not. She went after everything about me. And I”m like, ‘Who does that? What clicks in your head?’” Tamra explained. “Maybe she’s drinking, and then she’s on social media saying stupid things. She crosses the line a lot.”
Tamra also called Kelly out for crossing the line multiple times with co-star Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Kelly recently came under fire for sharing a video of Braunwyn’s home and cars, with visible license plates, on social media. She also claimed on Instagram that Braunwyn doesn’t pay her taxes. On top of that, she also insinuated on WWHL that Braunwyn’s alcohol issues are all for a storyline on RHOC.
“I really felt bad for Braunwyn. A lot of the castmates were saying she’s lying and she’s this, and she’s that. And it’s like, let’s just say she was. She was in a really bad place. It isn’t time to drag her down and beat her up,” Tamra said. “[She came forward with] a lot of information [and] a lot of people went after her for that [and] that’s not the right thing to do.”
To wrap, Tamra admitted that she’s not watching season 15 of RHOC, saying that it’s too “hurtful” for her to watch.
“Believe it or not, it’s hurtful for me. There’s a lot of firsts going through this season without me. Yesterday was the reunion, and Vicki and I…I’m like, ‘Do you feel a little weird?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, I feel weird about it.’ The show must go on, though!” she explained.
RHOC airs on Wednesdays at 9/8c.
