Vicki Gunvalson welcomed her longtime friend and former Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, Tamra Judge, to her podcast series, Whoop It Up with Vicki, on Thursday, March 19, and during their candid conversation, Gunvalson shared her first thoughts on Judge.

“I remember meeting you and I liked you right away," Gunvalson admitted.

Judge joined the cast of the Bravo reality series during its third season after Gunvalson had already appeared on the show for two seasons as an original cast member.

According to Gunvalson, she knew she and Judge were going to have a good time together as soon as she saw that their then-husbands, Donn Gunvalson and Simon Barney, got along.

"I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, we’re going to have so much fun together,’ because Simon and Donn liked each other. They were kind of hanging out and I thought, ‘This will be great,’” she recalled.

Since then, both Gunvalson and Judge have gotten divorced, with Judge marrying husband Eddie in 2013 and Gunvalson preparing to marry fiance Steve Lodge later this year.

After signing with Bravo to appear on The Real Housewives of Orange County in a full-time role during season three, Judge and Gunvalson, as well as the rest of the cast, including Gunvalson, Jeana Keough, Lauri Waring, Tammy Knickerbocker, and Quinn Fry, embarked on a cast trip to Florida.

Ironically, Florida was also the destination of the cast trip during the ladies' final season, season 14.

“Our big [season three] trip was to Florida, which, ironic, that was our big trip last year, too,” Judge noted.

After looking back at their time together in Florida, Gunvalson and Judge spoke about their recent trip to Mexico, during which Judge found herself naked with a broken foot.

“I wouldn’t get naked and you did,” Gunvalson said.

“You probably would have if you weren’t with Steve. He’s calmed you down,” Judge stated.

Gunvalson and Judge traveled South of the Border with their co-stars for what was supposed to be a fun trip before Judge ended up having to be hospitalized due to her injury.

Gunvalson said that when it came to her 14 years on The Real Housewives of Orange County, she dealt with some insecurities on the show.

After Judge said Gunvalson wouldn't get naked with her in Mexico, Gunvalson explained why.

“I also have to say, I’m 57. I didn’t have my 42-year-old body at that time. I don’t work out as much as you do. I also didn’t want them to see an ounce of cellulite on my a** because there might be a dimple,” she joked.
