On a recent episode of her and Teddi Mellencamp‘s shared podcast, Tamra reacted to the unexpected meeting between Heather and Gretchen before admitting that filming led to a disconnect between her and Eddie Judge, revealing that a co-star complained about her podcast, and speaking on recent rumors about the potential cast of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip season four.
“Don’t care. No opinion. Do not care,” Tamra said of Heather spending time with Gretchen and later posting pics on Instagram, on the November 14 episode of Two Ts in a Pod. “Haven’t seen [Gretchen] in over 10 years, have no relationship, friendship whatsoever with her, and Heather’s a grown a– woman. If that’s who she wants to hang out with, then so be it. I do not [follow her].”
As RHOC fans may have heard, the cast recently wrapped production on season 17. And, according to Tamra, the first thing on her mind was getting back to her normal routine with Eddie and their family — starting with a much needed getaway with her hubby.
“Eddie and I really hadn’t done much in the past three and a half months together,” she revealed. “He had bought me a new dirt bike six months ago, but it was off-season. So I said, ‘Let’s go for a day trip.’ He loves riding his dirt bike, so we went out… just for a day… went out for a couple of hours, rode the bike, and then turned around and came back home.”
“I definitely felt during filming, a disconnect between us, for sure,” Tamra admitted, adding that their relationship will be spotlighted on the new episodes.
“We do talk about our marriage and a little bump in our marriage. It’s not anything horrible. It’s something a lot of people relate to, but I didn’t have to do that. But I, for me, to a fault, I’m almost too open where Eddie tends to be a little bit… He was raised, ‘Don’t admit to anything and don’t talk about your life. Everything’s private,'” she shared.
When Tamra was then asked about why she is unable to recap episodes of RHOC for her podcast when other cast members do for their own shows, she revealed that one particular member of her cast complained.
“One of my cast members did complain about our podcast, and I’m just gonna leave it at that,” she teased. “Jealousy is ugly… But you know what, I don’t want to recap [RHOC]. It’s hard to not be biased. I lived it, and I’m gonna see it, and I just don’t want to.”
Since she and Teddi first launched their podcast in 2021, it has become wildly successful. In fact, according to Tamra, it gets her more public notoriety than RHOC.
“More people to this day come up to me and talk about our podcast than they talk about [RHOC]. It’s crazy,” she revealed.
Also during the episode, Tamra and Teddi addressed a recent rumor suggesting the RHUGT season four cast would include Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Ashley Darby and Robyn Dixon of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Gina Kirschenheiter and Emily Simpson of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and would take place in Hong Kong.
“I don’t know that there’s any truth to that, but one of my good friends reached out to one of the girls on this supposed cast, and they said there’s absolutely zero truth to it. However, I will tell you this: When you do get asked, you are not allowed to say anything,” Tamra shared.
Meanwhile, Teddi claimed that while she is not a part of the season four cast, she does “know for a fact it is cast.”
“Do I know that this is the cast? No,” she added.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in early 2023.
