We are three episodes in to the Real Housewives of Orange County and the drama is already ramping up. On last week’s show, we watched demoted Vicki Gunvalson chasing Kelly Dodd around Tamra Judge’s house to try to talk out their differences. Or, more likely, to get extra screen time to try to regain her orange.
So far, the season looks to be more promising than the last few. I am liking newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who seems interesting and grounded. We’ll see how long that lasts! Veteran Tamra’s storyline so far has been her new home–and shamelessly planting some seeds for future conflict between her sons Ryan Vieth and Spencer Barney. Of course, Tamra is all about pot-stirring–and creating drama by voicing her opinions on everything. Fortunately–or unfortunately–for viewers, Tamra is willing to do this both on and off the show.
Bravo’s The Daily Dish reported that Tamra recently shared her thoughts about some of her former co-stars on Watch What Happens Live. Betty Gilpin from Glow was on the show with Tamra and mentioned that she “loved” former RHOC star Lauri Peterson. Tamra then exclaimed about Lauri, ‘”F**king boring!” Lauri might not have stirred up a lot of drama, but not everyone can be a relentless attention seeker like Tamra.
Lauri’s best Housewife moment might have occurred long after she was a regular cast member, when she went on a cast skiing trip. She alleged that Vicki had been involved in a threesome during her marriage to Donn Gunvalson. I can still hear Vicki’s shrieks of denial echoing on the mountainside. Thank you for that Lauri–it was one of the most memorable moments in Housewife history!
As expected, Tamra said, “I miss Heather Dubrow the most.” The two might be an odd couple, but they have maintained a cordial relationship since Heather left the show, with Tamra even appearing on her podcast this spring.

Heather would get my vote for RHOC Housewife I would most like to see return. Pretentious Miss Fancy Pants was always good for snark, snobbery and her spot-on assessments of her cast mates.
Regarding Alexis, Tamra shared, “I would say Alexis in the middle.” The two never had the best relationship on the show and Tamra despised her husband Jim Bellino. Tamra is currently embroiled in a lawsuit with Jim over comments she made about him on a podcast. I am surprised Alexis wound up in the middle!
Rounding out the bottom is none other than Gretchen. Tamra said simply about her, “And Gretchen least.” While making a face that looked like she had just smelled a backed-up sewer.
Although the two tried to mend fences on occasion and even called a truce at one point, it was clear they would never be best friends. Plus, Tamra also hated Gretchen’s man Slade Smiley. I think I am detecting a pattern with Tamra…
I would have liked to have seen a few other Housewives thrown in for Tamra to rate, like her wine-in-the-face nemesis Jeana Keough. Or boring Peggy Sulahian. Needless so say, Tamra would surely have had an opinion about them!
TELL US- DO YOU AGREE WITH TAMRA’S RANKINGS OF THE HOUSEWIVES? DO YOU AGREE LAURI PETERSON WAS BORING? ARE THERE ANY RHOC HOUSEWIVES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE RETURN?
