Tamra Judge “butted heads” with Heather Dubrow immediately after returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County last summer.

According to a new report, the castmates, who have endured a number of ups and downs in recent years, didn’t get along during production on the upcoming 17th season as Tamra also suffered a falling out with rumored newbie Jennifer Pedranti, who she brought to the show.

On April 17, Page Six shared details about the new season, noting that while Taylor Armstrong was rumored to have taken on a full-time role, she didn’t film much by herself or in small groups. Instead, she focused on all-cast events, which seems to hint she will be a “friend.”

As for Vicki Gunvalson, who was seen in Tulum, Mexico, with Tamra, Jennifer, and Shannon Beador last October, sparking rumors of an RHOC return, she filmed enough that she was granted a series of confessional scenes. However, it remains unclear if she will be an official “friend.”

It is also unclear what role Jennifer will have on the show, although she will reportedly be seen feuding with her former friend.

As Page Six explained, Tamra may have brought Jennifer to the show but that didn’t mean they’d be permanent allies. In fact, their falling out was similar to what took place between Lisa Rinna and Sutton Stracke after Rinna brought Sutton to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Regarding what happened between Tamra and Heather amid RHOC season 17, the report said that after butting heads for weeks, the women reached a climax during a cast trip to Mexico, where Tamra supposedly led a “gang-up” and went “nuclear” on Heather.

While fans will have to wait and see what prompted the “nasty” encounter between Tamra and Heather, sources claim Tamra’s return scene is “epic and unlike anything Bravo has aired in the past.”

The report also revealed the RHOC cast embarked on a cast trip to Montana, but it noted that the visit seemed far less dramatic than their getaway in Mexico.

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this spring.
