Tamra Judge recently opened up about the final moments of her years-long friendship with her former "Real Housewives of Orange County" co-star and best friend, Shannon Beador.

Months after confirming that she and Shannon are currently estranged, Tamra opened up about the final moments of their friendship earlier this year after first confirming that she did speak briefly to Shannon after confirming on Instagram that she would not be taking on the part-time role she was offered for the upcoming 15th season of the Bravo reality series.

“We did talk after I announced [my departure],” Tamra revealed, according to a report shared by Reality Blurb last week. “Normally we would talk several times a day, every single day. And if I didn’t call her or call her back right away, she’d be like, ‘Where are you? How come you haven’t called me?’"

According to Tamra, everything changed between her and Shannon once she revealed she would not be filming the 15th season with the rest of the cast.

After kicking off production on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" season 15 in February before ultimately being shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, Shannon stopped taking Tamra's phone calls and reconciled with their on-screen nemesis, Kelly Dodd, who had taken aim at both Shannon and Tamra during the show's 14th season last year.

"And then, all of a sudden, I don’t hear from you and then it’s been a week and I would call her and go to voicemail,” Tamra explained.

Looking back on one of her final text messages to Shannon, Tamra recalled the moment in which she caught herself thanking Shannon for talking to her, as if she'd done her some sort of favor by humoring their once-close friendship.

“We had finally connected and talked for an hour and I’m like, ‘Thank you so much for talking to me’ and I’m like, what the hell am I doing? I’m like thanking her for talking to me? I used to get up in the middle of the night and take her calls and walk out of restaurants and take her calls when she was going through a hard time,” Tamra recalled.

According to Tamra, she's not the only one who Shannon cut ties with after they left the show.

“To me, I’m just hurt. I’m really hurt. And Vicki Gunvalson is, too. And Vicki even asked her, ‘Are you my real friend? Are we gonna continue to be friends after I’m not gonna be on?’ and she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, of course,'” Tamra alleged.

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" season 15 will resume filming in July and likely premiere sometime later this year on Bravo.
