According to Tamra, it took her months to finally accept that she was no longer a part of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
“It took me a certain amount of months to say, ‘You know what, I’m over it. I don’t want to do this. I have to move forward,'” she explained. “If you keep looking back, you’re going to keep thinking about it.’ But it’s really hard. I’m reminded of it every single day.
