Tamra Judge was “bored” on Thursday and decided to hold an impromptu Q&A session with her fans and followers on her Instagram Stories.
As she and her family remain hunkered down at their Southern California home, the former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member confirmed a rift with Shannon Beador, responded to claims of being Andy Cohen‘s favorite housewife, and revealed which season of the show she felt was the best.
“Why did you ditch Shannon as a friend so quickly…” one fan asked on April 2.
“Not sure where you got your information from but I never ‘ditched Shanon,'” Tamra replied. “I’ve been nothing but there for her.”
While it wasn’t mentioned during the chat, Tamra and Vicki Gunvalson both unfollowed Shannon after seeing that she had reconciled with Kelly Dodd, who all three of them feuded with throughout season 14.
“Are you still friends with Shannon?” another fan wondered. “I thought you were so close!!”
“I thought we were. I just don’t hear from her very often,” Tamra explained, along with a sad-faced emoji.
As the chat continued, a third fan brought up the idea that Tamra was Andy’s very favorite cast member of the Real Housewives franchise.
“I’m going to miss you on RHOC! I always thought you were Andy’s [favorite] housewife. True?” the person asked.
In response, Tamra offered a shrugging bitmoji.
Tamra then revealed to another person that the thing she misses most about filming is also what she misses the least: getting dressed up.
As for Tamra’s favorite season of the show, that honor went to “season 11 with Heather Dubrow.”
Just last month, during an appearance on Vicki’s podcast series, Whoop It Up with Vicki, Tamra said she believed RHOC went “downhill” after producers got rid of Heather.
“I think it was season 11, I thought that was an amazing cast. I always thought that Heather was good TV,” Tamra shared. “I think ever since they got rid of her I feel like it went downhill a little bit.”
Tamra announced she was leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County after 12 seasons in January.
