After opening up about her thoughts on “mean-spirited” Kelly Dodd and on Vicki Gunvalson‘s demotion last week, Tamra appeared on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live. There, she revealed which of her ex-costars she misses the most and who she misses the least.
Later, while appearing on the WWHL After Show, Tamra responded to a fan who called in to ask which of her ex-costars she would like to bring back to the show now that Vicki is no longer appearing on the series full-time.
“I think you can’t replace Vicki. She’s the O.G. of the O.C.,” Tamra replied.
Then, after fellow guest Betty Gilpin from Glow suggested Lauri Peterson should be brought back, Tamra made it clear she was not on board with the idea.
“She was kind of boring… kind of boring… I’m not going to lie. [She was] f**king boring!” Tamra explained.
During a recent interview, Kelly slammed Tamra as “stale” and suggested that if she were in charge of casting the RHOC, Tamra would be next to be demoted. However, when asked about her costar’s comment, Tamra wasn’t quick to fire back. Instead, she revealed Kelly had actually got in trouble for saying that and suggested the network should get better “control [of Kelly’s] mouth.”
“That girl doesn’t shut up,” Tamra added in her interview with People Live.
Regarding Vicki’s demotion, Tamra said she was “totally shocked,” especially because Vicki was “the major drama in the season.” Tamra confirmed Vicki did not handle the news well, especially since she was absent from the premiere episode.
“At the very beginning, the first episode, I invited her over and she was crying. She didn’t want to come over because it was really hard for her,” Tamra revealed.
Although Tamra and Vicki’s relationship at the start of season 14 wasn’t great, Tamra said they are now “really close.”
“It took me some time. When everything was going on with Kelly and Vicki, it kind of took me back to that time where I’m like, ‘I don’t know that I really trust her.’ And then it evolved into… We’re really good friends,” she confirmed.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 14 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
