During a new interview, the mother of seven took aim at the OG of the O.C., slamming her for creating “fake drama” and lying about Kelly Dodd, before sharing her thoughts on the exit of Tamra Judge and explaining why Shannon Beador flourished on the show without the “Tres Amigas.”
“I think it’s good not having Vicki there because a lot of what she did last year was manufactured, fake drama and lies against [co-star Kelly],” Braunwyn told Digital Spy on October 16. “I’m not into that kind of thing, I don’t really like that when women do that do each other.”
“For me, I miss having Tamra there. Tamra and I got along great. She’s still my friend… I miss having Tamra there. On camera and off camera, Tamra is a friend of mine. I think that will be the case forever,” Braunwyn explained. “I’m glad Vicki’s gone, I miss Tamra.”
According to Braunwyn, she misses spending time with Tamra but knows that when it comes to RHOC, people often lose touch with one another after someone leaves the series.
“It’s just like with anything. When you graduate from college, you don’t see your friends anymore. It’s sad,” she admitted.
As for the way in which Shannon flourished during production on the new episodes, Braunwyn said her co-star was able to form new relationships with the rest of the women after the other ladies of “Tres Amigas” quit their roles on the show.
“It definitely gave Shannon a chance to make closer relationships with other people,” she stated.
