Tamra Judge may not be on the “Real Housewives of Orange County” anymore but she’s still knee-deep in the drama. Hours before season 15 aired on Wednesday, October 14, the former Bravo personality took to her Instagram Story to answer some fan questions. Last night’s episode marks the very first one since Tamra Judge and “RHOC” OG Vicki Gunvalson walked away from the hit reality series, leaving their archenemy Kelly Dodd to take the position of head orange in charge.
Despite no longer being on the show, Tamra Judge had a lot to say about her former co-star. When one person asked if she would be watching the season-opening episode, the blonde bombshell simply responded “no.” When another asked Tamra Judge if she’d ever return to “RHOC,” she had some choice words to say.
Posting a photo with another former “Housewife,” Heather Dubrow, who was on the show from season 7-11, Tamra Judge answered the question while taking a jab at Kelly Dodd.
“Would you return to RHOC?” the fan asked the ex-star to which Tamra Judge replied, “If they fire the racist and bring back @heatherdubrow @vickigunvalson.” While she didn’t point out Kelly Dodd directly, this isn’t the first time Tamra has called her former castmate the name.
Just months ago, Judge did a question and answer with her fans and put her two-cents in when someone asked if the network should fire Kelly Dodd over racist comments she’s made in the past.
“Do you think Kelly should be fired for her racist statments [sic] coming to light?” the person asked and Tamra Judge responded. “Yes I do,” she stated before referencing a video from 2016 where a drunken Kelly appeared on tape saying, “I don’t like black guys.”
Calling the video “disgusting,” Tamra Judge then took a shot at Bravo. “Bravo shouldn’t just single certain people out like Stassi & Kristen,” she wrote, adding, “There should be zero tolerance policy at this point.”
Tamra Judge was referring to Bravo’s firing frenzy that took place over summer. The network fired “Vanderpump Rules” stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute in June after a past racist incident was brought to light. They also fired two newbies over former racist tweets. After that, Bravo canned Peter Hunziker from “Below Deck Mediterranean.”
Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd’s drama goes way back and it came to a head last season. Months later, Judge revealed she would not be returning to “RHOC” after the network reportedly demoted her.
