Kelly Dodd Says ‘White Trash’ Tamra Judge ‘Offers Nothing’ To RHOC


Kelly Dodd makes it known that she doesn’t think Tamra Judge is a good fit for the Real Housewives of Orange County. Get all the TEA here!

RHOC alum Kelly Dodd is saying what a lot of Bravo fans think in her latest social media rant.

On Instagram, Kelly Dodd slammed former friend and co-star Tamra Judge for calling out others over not showing their real lives on RHOC when she NEVER shows her reality on the show.

Kelly also insisted that Tamra is “boring” and “offers nothing” to RHOC as she’s not wealthy or living an aspirational lifestyle. She also called Tamra and her family “insufferable white trash” and so much more.

According to the former Bravoleb, RHOC fans have had “enough” of Tamra’s BS and want to see OC Housewives with “yachts, businesses, beautiful clothes, homes, lives, and interesting kids.”

She then encouraged Bravo boss Andy Cohen to “get rid” of Tamra Judge once and for all.

Here is Kelly Dodd’s full rant about Tamra Judge:

Oh, and like we see Tamra’s life !!! She has 4 kids; we don’t know them. Except for the cowboy t ranch guy. Tamra’s life is BOOORRRRINGG!! She doesn’t have fabulous homes. She dresses like white trash. She’s old and has a gay husband that looks like he has marbles in his mouth !! Why is she back??? She offers NOTHING!!! She made this season insufferable go back to your white trash family. We don’t want to watch you or your WT Mom and her ugly, weird boyfriend. All my friends in OC HAVE YACHTS, businesses, beautiful clothes, homes, lives & interesting kids. Get rid of this old washed-up hag! We’ve had enough!! @bravoandy

This rant from Kelly Dodd comes just after RHOC concluded on season 17, which saw the return of Tamra Judge after a two-year hiatus from the show.

Bravo producers fired Tamra in early 2020 after 12 years on RHOC. The 56-year-old joined RHOC in 2007, during the show’s third season. As for Kelly Dodd, she starred on RHOC from seasons 11 through 15 before being fired by Bravo ahead of season 16.

Despite Kelly’s opinions on Tamra being a bad fit for RHOC, it seems like Tammy Sue will be back for season 18 of the franchise.

According to  TV Deets, it is “most likely” that the entire RHOC season 17 cast will be returning for season 18.

Season 17 of RHOC starred Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow, Gina KirschenheiterEmily Simpson, and Jennifer Pedranti. Taylor Armstrong also appeared as a friend of the Housewives.

Per sources, “Producers and the network were really happy with the fan engagement this year, and all of the ladies stepped up to the plate to deliver.”

Staffen continued, “Now, I’m told that with Shannon Beador’s DUI arrest, producers want to follow the aftermath of that and how that has impacted the group. I’m also told that Jennifer [Pedranti] is expected to return and Taylor [Armstrong] will be back as well, and I’m hearing that it is ‘most likely’ she will keep her Friend of the Housewives role.”

Despite Bravo’s plans to bring everyone within the RHOC cast back for season 18, producers are still on the “lookout for new Housewives.” They are also floating around the idea of bringing Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi back for season 18.

When it comes to Vicki Gunvalson, she has made it clear that she won’t be back for season 18 unless Bravo gives her a full-time spot on the show.

“It’s all in or nothing. It would have to be on my terms, and that means financially, too. I’m not gonna go back down. I left at a certain number. Either you bring that number back, or what’s the point?” Vicki Gunvalson said earlier this month on  Access Hollywood’s Housewives Nightcap podcast.

“I don’t need them as much as they need me. There has to be a voice of reason and a strong, successful businesswoman that can still have fun.”

“[Season 17] wasn’t right. It was something I created, and I’m coming in like a has-been old lady? I’m not gonna do that,” she added. “It was like, ‘Why am I not on full-time?’ You want to use me for things.” Vicki said.

The Real Housewives of Orange County will return for season 18 in 2024.
