RHOC's Tamra Judge Talks Being in "Bad Place" With Heather After Catching Her in Lie, Shannon Saying She Drank Too Much, and Jen and Ryan's D-ck Pic Stories, Plus Dorinda Tagline Drama

Tamra Judge claims she and Heather Dubrow aren’t in the best place after experiencing a number of “bumps” amid filming on the currently airing 17th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

In addition to offering an update on her relationship with Heather during a recent interview, Tamra addressed Shannon Beador‘s claims about her drinking, spotlighted Jennifer Pedranti and Ryan Boyajian‘s changing stories about his d-ck pic, and discussed her tagline drama with Dorinda Medley.

“I got a text message from Dorinda and it was a video of her saying almost the exact same tagline on Nick Cannon’s talk show and I had not seen that or heard that,” Tamra shared during an appearance on E! News earlier this week.

As RHOC fans may have noticed, Tamra’s tagline, which states, “I might have been on pause but now, I’m ready to play,” is nearly identical to the one Dorinda told Nick she’d want for The Real Housewives of New York City if she were to return to the series post-pause.

And while Tamra knew that Dorinda’s “thing” was, “Pause, pause, pause,” and told producers her tagline felt “very Dorinda,” Bravo ultimately chose to move forward with it.

“I told her, I said, ‘You know how it goes.’ And she was nice. At first, I think she wasn’t very happy about it but she was very kind. She’s like, ‘I know. I’m just giving you a hard time,’” Tamra recalled.

Moving on to Jennifer and Ryan, Tamra said their story about his d-ck pic “has changed a couple of times.”

“First, she said, ‘He sent it on accident.’ Then the story changed again and he said himself he sent it to everyone on Snapchat. Well, that’s not an option on Snapchat,” Tamra noted. “You can’t just press all unless you have them in a group and I don’t think he would have his kids [in the group].”

Tamra then noted that Ryan is the cast member who will “have the most to answer to at the [RHOC] reunion”

Tamra also said that while she’d like to think Ryan is not a serial cheater, as her husband Eddie Judge believes, “it’s not looking good” for Jennifer.

At that point in the interview, Shannon’s past comments about Tamra being the “most improved” housewife and the one who drank too much were aired. And after hearing what her castmate had to say, Tamra refuted the idea that she’s most improved.

“I was never bad,” she clarified before copping to Shannon’s drinking claim.

“I’m not a big drinker, so going back, I didn’t know who was my friend, where I stood with these girls, I was nervous … I definitely was not a seasoned drinker at that time. I’m a lightweight,” she explained.

Then, after saying Emily Simpson has the “best confessionals,” naming Shannon as the cast member who is “always late” and saying she “[tunes] out [Gina Kirschenheiter] the most” during filming, Tamra said Heather is “most different” on-camera, versus off camera.

“Heather and I ended the show in a very bad place, a place that I never thought we would be,” Tamra admitted of their status. “Throughout the season, we have some little bumps here and there but overall we’ve always been really good friends, and then at the end of the season, I caught her in a little bit of a lie.”

But despite that lie, Tamra said “part of [her] kind of misses [Heather].”

“She’s a good person. She’s a great mom. I just think that maybe she was going through a lot in her life at that moment and she was acting up a little bit,” Tamra reasoned.
