Tamra Judge shared her thoughts on the unconventional life of her former “Real Housewives of Orange County” co-star, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and her husband, Sean Burke, during an appearance on the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast last week.
Months after confirming her exit from the series to her fans and followers on Instagram, Tamra mentioned Braunwyn’s heel-wearing husband before revealing her thoughts about the way in which Braunwyn performed during her debut season on the show, which was filmed last year.
“She has seven kids, a husband who wears high heels, [and] a mom that has rainbow dreadlocks. I don’t know. There is a lot going on there… just having seven kids is a lot,” Tamra said of her former cast mate.
As fans of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” will recall, Tamra and Braunwyn appeared to hit it off with one another during production on season 14 and even shared a passionate kiss at a bar during filming.
Looking back, Tamra said Braunwyn was definitely a “team player.”
As for her first season, Tamra continued on, telling David that she believes the Orange County mom did “okay” for being a newbie.
“A lot of times they don’t where their place is,” Tamra explained of new cast members.
“I think she’s interesting because she has a lot going on in her life but I don’t think people wanna see what’s going on with her kids,” Tamra shared.
“Nobody wants to see [the kids],” Tamra continued.
According to Tamra, she couldn’t show her own kids on the show because her ex-husband, Simon Barney, refused to allow it after their split.
“It was kind of bittersweet,” she said. “I wanted them to so I can show I was a mom but then he didn’t [sign off].”
Tamra went on to say that appearing on a reality show can open children up to being ridiculed at school.
She then added that there is no one’s kid who she wants to see on the show.
Tamra believes that when it comes to the families of cast members, viewers aren’t tuning in to see children.
“There’s a lot of kids on [‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’ and] I don’t wanna see it. That’s not why [people] tune in. There’s a lot of kids on it. Every once in a while it’s okay but to see them regularly? No,” she stated.
