After feuding with the “Real Housewives of Orange County” cast member for months, Tamra said that while she is not exactly a fan of Kelly and all that she stands for, she has found that her behavior has been “consistent” over the years.
“Kelly’s always been consistent and I always say, you want to judge somebody on reality TV, judge them on their social media because it’s not being edited,” Tamra stated.

“That’s their true self,” Tamra continued, giving a nod to the many controversies seen by Kelly in 2020, including the firestorm of backlash she faced after suggesting, before retracting, that the COVID-19 pandemic was “God’s way of thinning the herd.”
“I think it was reckless for her to say some of the things she’s saying being on a platform and putting out that news, it’s not very smart,” Tamra stated.
According to Tamra, Kelly likely shares irrational thoughts after having too much to drink.

“I think she has an issue with drinking and being on her phone and posting stuff she probably shouldn’t,” Tamra admitted.
In addition to her shocking COVID-19 comments, Kelly also faced backlash after wearing a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat, which many believed was poking fun at the ever-important Black Lives Matter movement that continues to call for racial equality.
When Tamra was then asked which of the current cast members she’s in touch with. In response, Tamra confirmed Elizabeth Vargas has reached out.

“[Elizabeth] has reached out to me on social media and she’s even promoted my CBD company and my gym,” Tamra revealed. “She’s been very sweet to me. She’s asked me to go to lunch but that’s never happened. I’ve seen clips of her on Instagram on the show and she seems good. Hey, that’s my replacement.”
As for the possibility of moving forward with her former friends, Shannon Beador, in the future, Tamra made it clear that while she would love to speak with Shannon, she would never, ever be her friend again.
“I would definitely have a conversation with her,” Tamra shared.

“I learned a lot from that relationship I just will not be in a one-sided friendship ever again. When you’re giving and giving and doing for somebody else and you don’t get it back, I’ve learned you walk away. That’s not a friendship I want to be in,” Tamra confirmed.
Then, when Danny suggested he had witnessed Shannon being mean to a group of people, Tamra informed him that the behavior was “common.”
