Tamra Judge is admitting she would like to see her Real Housewives of Orange County castmate Emily Simpson get the boot from the show, as she also reveals which of her former co-stars she would like to see return.
During a new interview, Tamra admits to missing having Heather Dubrow alongside her on the RHOC. She also spoke about the possibility of Heather returning to the Bravo TV reality series for its upcoming 14th season following her sudden exit after season 11.
“I think [Heather] should come back next year,” Tamra told Us Weekly.
Heather joined the Real Housewives of Orange County during its seventh season in 2012 and confirmed her exit from the series in 2017. Since then, she and Tamra have spoken “once in a while.”
“I did see Heather’s house once and I think it took about an hour to do a tour,” Tamra revealed of her former co-star’s stunning Orange County mansion. “It’s beautiful. It’s big. … It’s everything Heather is.”
“Maybe somebody that likes diamonds and things,” she said, citing Emily’s show tagline, which states, “When you come from humble beginnings, you count your blessings … one diamond at a time.”
Oddly enough, this is NOT the first time Tamra has made her feelings clear about not wanting Emily on the show. During a Twitter feud with Emily last month, she also alluded to the fact that she wanted this to be Emily’s last season.
Tamra went on to explain why she is not a fan of Emily’s.
“I think the issue with me, it’s not so much what happened on the show, it was a lot of the things that [Emily] was doing behind our backs. A little sneaky,” Tamra said of her hangups with Emily. “Outside of the show, just things that I’ve heard, things that she’s done. Her sister’s out there tweeting horrible things about me and [my husband] Eddie.”
“I mean, I want to love Emily, she’s always nice to my face, but it’s even worse when someone’s so nice to your face then you’re hearing all these things are going on. You’re like, ‘Whoa, really?’ You call me, you text me, you tell me you love me. You’re friends with me, but then … It is what it is,” she continued.
As for Gina Kirschenheiter, Tamra had only good things to say.
“The youngest one is the smartest. She is really keeping it off the show and it’s really hard for the viewers in general, or even us in the cast, to even get connected with that story line because we don’t know Matt. We can only feel bad for our friend, but she’s not trashing him.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 13 airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
