Tamra Judge opened up about the possibility of returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Fans are still holding out hope that she will return to the series. In early 2020, the reality star announced her departure from the Bravo series. It’s something that she’s considered doing for some time.
First, Vicki Gunvalson announced that she was no longer going to be the OG of the OC. Shortly thereafter, Tamra announced her departure as well. In an interview on Radio Andy’s Jeff Lewis Live on Thursday, February 20, 2020, Tamra revealed that her ex-husband Simon Barney’s cancer diagnosis influenced her exit.
Does Tamra Judge have plans to return?
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 15 was a snooze fest. Some fans felt it was the worst season they ever watched and it’s not because it was filmed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They miss Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson. However, Tamra revealed that she will not be returning to the show once again.
Per People, the entrepreneur took to her Instagram Stories to share an update with her followers. On Monday, October 4, the RHOC alum had a virtual Q&A session with her fans. One asked Tamra if she was returning to the Bravo series. “Can’t wait to see you and [Heather Dubrow] on [orange emoji].”
Fans would love to see the two friends back together, especially after the cable network announced the return of Heather Dubrow. However, Tamra Judge said not so fast. She said she has no intentions of returning to the future season.
“Sorry, not happening!” she wrote. “Concentrating on the future, not the past.”
In an interview with People, Tamra talked about her time on the show and why it was time to go. She called it a wild ride and admitted that she’s looking forward to her new life away from the cameras. Apparently, money doesn’t talk because Tamra said she turned down $200,000 to appear on three episodes of the new season. The fitness trainer felt it was time to leave on her terms.
Previously talked about her RHOC return
Tamra Judge may be done with The Real Housewives of Orange County. But on Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast, the reality star expressed her interest in another reality series she would join. Tamra said she would enjoy her time with newbie Leah McSweeney. She’s obsessed with the Married to the Mob founder and feels that RHONY needs a cast shakeup.
Earlier this year, rumors swirled that Tamra Judge would return to RHOC following her January 2020 departure. Fans had a feeling she would reunite with former co-star Heather Dubrow since the two are good times. Tamra claimed on Instagram that she was unaware of Heather’s return. Yet, she did appear on an Instagram Live episode of the “S’More Date” series, where they shared a story of their craziest date.
