During an episode of her and Teddi Mellencamp‘s podcast earlier this month, Tamra, who starred on the Bravo reality series from season three until season 14, told Heather to stop talking about money before taking aim at Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson, who she claims aren’t “housewife material.”
“I love you, Heather, so much. But stop talking about money,” Tamra said on Two T’s in a Pod.
In addition to showing off the 22,000-square-foot mansion she shares with Dr. Terry Dubrow and their four kids, Heather took cameras, and her RHOC co-stars, along for the ride when she went hunting for a vacation home in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Following her statement about Heather and her money chatter, Tamra targeted the behavior of Gina and Emily, suggesting that the longtime friends are too “produced.”
“Viewers are smart. They can see when somebody’s self-producing themselves. And that leads me to Gina and Emily. Their scenes together are so rehearsed and I’m starting to feel like they should be on Sesame Street or WeTV,” Tamra said. “Their stupid little banters back forth… I’m like, ‘You guys, this is dumb. This is not housewife material.’”
In addition to feeling that Gina and Emily are pre-planning their antics on RHOC, Tamra said she also believes that the producers have taken it upon themselves to use the ladies as replacements for her and Vicki Gunvalson.
“They’re definitely making those two the new Tamra and Vicki. There’s no doubt about it in my mind,” she stated.
“It’s a little too rehearsed for me. I feel like they’re doing stuff just to do stuff. It’s a little… little girl silly,” Tamra added.
RHOC Live Viewing – This is also the live viewing thread for tonight’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County season 16, which airs at 9/8c on Bravo.
