The Bravo kingdom collapsed when Tamra Judge announced her return to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Throughout the season, many viewers look forward to watching Tamra reclaim her orange and challenge Heather Dubrow, who has arguably been unchallenged throughout the season.
Heather and Tamra once hailed each other as friends, but their friendship soured when Tamra accused Heather of self-producing. She then allegedly fed information to Andy Cohen to block Tamra's return, making it seem as if Heather had made a calculated move.
Tamra shared Heather's reaction to the recent news on her Two T's In A Pod podcast on July 20. Heather contacted Tamra first after learning of her return, according to Tamra. With a laugh, co-host Teddi Mellencamp replied, "Of course she was.". Did she go through this as a precaution, or was she exuberant about you?”
Tamra shared, "It's funny, she texted me and said that it was about time for me to do this, you know," via Heavy. Because Bravo had not publicly announced the news, she was unable to respond to Heather's text.
It was imperative that I stay away from social media because if someone wrote to me or sent me a message congratulatory, I would be compelled to respond by giving them a thumbs up or a heart, you know what I mean? It is impossible for me to resist. "I feel as if I have truth serum coursing through my veins," Tamra said. Then I realize that I must get off social media to avoid being criticized by someone.
I didn't respond to Jill [Zarin] and, once it was announced, Andy [Cohen] told me "yes, the cast confirmed it." I then responded to her. Thank you very much, and that is all I can say." Tamra also teased some future drama with Shannon Beador, a former castmate, and BFF who ghosted her after the 2020 firing.
“I will have to have a hard, deep conversation with Shannon, which will likely be emotional,” Tamra explained. “There will be hard words exchanged, it will be heated, but I hope that we can resolve what happened in the past because we were so close friends for so many years.”
Tamra said, "Shannon texted me yesterday to wish me luck on 'Watch What Happens Life, so I miss our friendship. There was a lot of stuff that went on that I did not like. In order to reestablish my relationship with her, I need answers."
What are the chances of Shannon and Tamra reconciling? Many fans are hoping that the alliance will shake up the dynamics of last season, which plagued the ratings and placed Heather in an undeserved leadership position.
