RHOC Star Tamra Judge Says She Was Offered Six Figures to Return for Just Three Episodes of Season 15, Talks Renewing Real Estate License

Tamra Judge doesn’t want people thinking she was offered just $60,000 to appear on three episodes of the upcoming 15th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

After watching Wendy Williams address her departure from the Bravo franchise earlier this week, Tamra shared clips from The Wendy Williams Show on her Instagram Stories, confirming that the $60,000 figure was incorrect and reacted to Wendy’s sentiments regarding her exit.

“They were giving her $900,000 per season. They reduced her to shooting three scenes for $20,000,” Wendy alleged of Tamra’s supposed salary cut, appearing to misstate the reported number which was actually $60,000 for three episodes at a rate of $20,000 per episode.

In response, Tamra told the talk show host her figure was incorrect.

“NOT TRUE @WendyShow You need to add another zero to that number,” Tamra stated, suggesting that she was actually offered a whopping $200,000 for season 15.

As the show continued, Wendy applauded Tamra for putting her foot down after the supposedly insulting offer. Tamra also mentioned that her decision to renew her real estate license wasn’t due to her RHOC firing, but rather something she had always done every four years.

“I renew my Real estate license every 4 year… cuz you never know,” wrote Tamra.

“Tamra’s got a good attitude. She was grateful for the show. The show gave her a really, really good… She met her husband during the show, the show made her rich and now she’s moving on. And if you’re going to only shoot three episodes for $20,000, that’s the kind of thing you do. You move on,” Wendy continued.

While Tamra was admittedly shocked when she learned she would not be included in the full-time cast of RHOC season 15, she is grateful to have been a part of the long-running reality show.

“I had a great 12 year run and thankful for my time on [Bravo],” she wrote in a third Instagram Stories post.

As RHOC fans will recall, Tamra announced her departure from the show last Saturday, just one day after her longtime friend Vicki Gunvalson revealed she would not be included in the new episodes.

Although the official cast for the upcoming season has not yet been revealed, a report earlier this week claimed both Kelly Dodd and Shannon Beador had been asked back.
