Tamra Judge opened up about her decision to leave the “Tres Amigas” show during a recent episode of her and Teddi Mellencamp‘s podcast.

Following her public outburst against Vicki Gunvalson, 61, and Shannon Beador, 59, over the weekend, the Real Housewives of Orange County star, 56, explained why she quit the live performances as Teddi, 42, shamed Vicki for failing to support her in anything and questioned Tamra about whether she’d be open to a reconciliation with either.

“Vicki comes after me for my loyalty. I said, ‘My loyalty? I have been nothing but [loyal],'” Tamra began on a recent episode of Two Ts in a Pod, shared by the Real Housewives Zone on Instagram on January 9.

Moving on to her exit from the “Tres Amigas,” Tamra said she attended a meeting in Arizona where she explained that her schedule was too busy to attend.

“I basically said, ‘I have a very busy schedule, and then filming’s gonna start. I have Traitors press coming out. I have the Traitors reunion to do,’ and I said, ‘I think that you should find a backup because I don’t know how much I can commit to it,'” she recalled.

Then, after her falling out with Shannon last month, Tamra got a text message from their manager about a show opportunity in Texas, which prompted her to make her departure official.

“I said, ‘At this time, I want to say goodbye to Tres Amigas. It’s not suiting me right now,'” she revealed. “After the last show experience, I just didn’t feel comfortable and I thought it was time for me to move on. So not one of them reached out to me to ask me to do this show. In fact, in his text message, he told me both Shannon and Vicki have agreed to do this show, and Doug, and it all lies on you, which I thought was a pretty sh*tty thing to do.”

In addition to not reaching out to her about their potential show in Texas, Vicki and Shannon also did not reach out to Tamra after learning she was leaving. Instead, Vicki began shading Tamra in the press.

“She was just insinuating things about me and I took the high road because I knew how badly she wanted to be back on [RHOC]. I didn’t want to add fuel to the fire, and all that stuff. And then they announced their two-woman show on social media,” Tamra explained, adding that Vicki has since sent her “a text message that was very mean.”

“It went after my character,” Tamra noted. “[And] when they announced their show and Vicki reposted something that said something about the Two T-Holes, I thought, ‘How rude.’”

“I’m just happy to be done,” Tamra continued of her exit from “Tres Amigas.” “Like I said, I felt like I took the biggest sh*t of my life. As I once said in a tagline, the best thing about starting over is never looking back. That’s how I feel.”

Amid Tamra’s account, Teddi shared her own recent experience with Vicki, shading her for her lack of support for Tamra and accusing her of bashing her looks.

“She never once supported you in anything. Anything she supported about you is selfish for her,” Teddi stated. “[And] one of the things that Vicki said hurt her the most throughout the years is when one of her castmates called her Miss Piggy, when somebody went after her looks. And what she’s just done about me and calling me ugly and disgusting and a terrible human being, pretending to be so above something and then going after somebody’s looks … I’ve been through f*cking hell for the last two weeks.”

During another segment of the show, Tamra revealed if she’ll make amends with her castmates.

“If you had to pick one to rekindle a relationship with, would it be Shanon or Vicki?” Teddi asked, via Two Ts in a Pod on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Why don’t you throw Gretchen in there? I would make up with Gretchen,” Tamra replied.

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 18 is expected to begin filming sometime this month.
