It seemed like Tamra Judge was one of Andy Cohen’s favorite Housewives, but that wasn’t enough to save her orange. Tamra confirmed that before she left the show she was offered a “Friend of the Housewives” role for Real Housewives of Orange County Season 15. This means that she would not hold an orange and that she wouldn’t be a full-time cast member.
Interestingly enough, a “source” claimed that Tamra actually got less than a part-time cast member offer: she only got THREE episodes. Damn. No wonder she quit IN RESPONSE. That’s pretty humiliating, to be honest. Well, that source (who was probably Tamra) was correct. Andy confirmed the lowball offered and dished on her exit.
During his Sirius XM radio show, Andy admitted, “I didn’t know about the unfollowing.” Yeah, Tamra unfollowed everyone on Instagram. She’s done with Andy, the production company, the Bravo network, even her “best friend”
that she backstabs constantly Shannon Beador. And, of course, the other cast members, because why not go half-ass on being so bitter?
Andy confirmed that they “offered her three episodes and kind of wrap up her story.” I wish they recorded the moment when they offered this. That was probably such an epic meltdown.

Andy recalled, “And she didn’t want to do that. I mean, listen, she’s been on the show for twelve years. We wanted to give her a send off. She has been an incredible Housewife. She really has. She’s been dramatic. She’s beautiful.”
Tamra is also the best shit-stirrer in the game. Yes, her personal storylines have been pretty weak and usually revolve around self-promotion or exploiting her kids. However, she knows just how to rile the Housewives up and play them against each other. Who is gonna take over the resident shit-stirrer responsibilities in Tamra’s absence?! I also just wanted to see the women put Tamra in her place after all the Season 14 footage of her talking behind everyone’s backs.

Andy did his best politician impression when he remarked, “She has been great and we have been wanting to kind of, what’s the word? Not ‘reinvent,’ but shake it up a little bit for a few years. I’m hoping, and this is not lip service, I’m hoping that she will come back in some form. Either this season or in the next couple because I just think she’s someone that I am always interested in.” If that was the case, then why wouldn’t she get an orange? If Tamra is so interesting, she should still be a full-time cast member. Yet, here we are.
Andy concluded, “I didn’t realize that about the unfollowing, but ummm, it’s a process.” Apparently.
