Having joined the RHOC cast back in season 3, Kelly believes the 51-year-old CUT Fitness owner has had a great run on the show and can’t understand how she’s still in the cast.
“If I were to be like, a senior executive, I would think, I mean, I would think Tamra is next,” admitted Kelly in an interview with PEOPLE. “She likes to spread rumors and lies and everything else.”
Kelly also went on to say that like Vicki, who got demoted to a friend role in season 14, Tamra has grown stale and is no longer interesting to watch. “You gotta have a personal story. You can’t be surrounding your other people’s stories,” Kelly divulged. “I feel like Tamra and Vicki, I mean, they’re stale,” the mother-of-one said. “Usually, 14 years is a great run, I mean, take that and run.”
“I was shocked [Vicki] didn’t get demoted to a friend role after the whole Brooks [Ayers] scandal,” the reality star added.
While Kelly admits that the “O.G. of the O.C.” paved the way for her and many other housewives on the show, she says she really can’t relate to her anymore. “She’s a grandma. I’m not a grandma, I have a young daughter, her kids are all grown, ” the housewife explained.
Kelly then referred to the 57-year-old Coto Insurance founder as a “senior citizen,” and she admitted she didn’t feel that way about other older housewives like Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer, 62.
“I feel like when I look at Ramona, I feel like Ramona is like, my sister, like she’s my age. When I look at Vicki, I look at her as like, AARP,” Kelly said in the interview.
