Here's How the RHOC Cast Feels After Learning Tamra Judge May Return for New Season, Plus the Latest on Her Negotiations

Tamra Judge‘s potential return to The Real Housewives of Orange County reportedly has her co-stars feeling shocked and anxious.

Following a report claiming Tamra is “in negotiations” to return to the show for season 15 in a part-time role, an insider is sharing how the rest of the cast has responded to the news.

“The ladies of the RHOC were shocked to hear that Tamra will be returning for this season,” a source told Hollywood Life on February 26. “They thought she was done for this season so they didn’t know what to make of it when the news came out.”

Tamra first hinted at her possible return to the show earlier this month on Instagram. Then, last week, while appearing on Jeff Lewis‘ radio show, Jeff Lewis Live, she admitted that Andy Cohen told her “to hold off on signing any kind of contract” for another series before “[running] it past him first.”

“He says that I’ll be back next year,” Tamra added.

Days later, a Radar Online report claimed Tamra was “working out a deal that would bring her back for more than three episodes” and she would be paid “between $20-25,000,000” for each. However, when it comes to Tamra’s reported negotiations with Bravo, nothing is set in stone yet.

“Everything is still very up in the air about Tamra filming, if it’s actually happening soon or not, in what capacity, etc. They have all been kept in the dark about what capacity that is as Tamra herself doesn’t even know the plan, so they’re all anxiously waiting,” the source shared.

The insider then said that despite the absence of Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra, production on season 15 has been going well.

“Despite Vicki being gone and Tamra not filming anything yet, there’s still been some really good drama and fighting between the ladies and they’re only a few weeks into filming,” the source said.
