Tamra Judge’s relationships with former The Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino haven’t improved since they left the show. On Monday night, Tamra appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, where she talked about where things currently stand with Gretchen and Alexis.
As reported by All About The Real Housewives, Tamra was asked which former housewife she would like to return to the show. Tamra said that she doesn’t think anyone should return. She believes that it’s best for the show to move forward rather than bring back former cast members.
“None. You move forward; you don’t live in the past.”
As for whether Tamra sees Gretchen and Alexis, she said that she never runs into them.
After some talk about Tamra’s renewed Christian faith, a viewer asked Tamra if she ever apologized to Alexis, a devout Christian, for calling her “Jesus Jugs” on a reunion show. Tamra cracked a joke.
“No, but I did apologize to Jesus.”
Tamra Judge has been on The Real Housewives of Orange County since the third season. Alexis Bellino was on the show from the fifth through eighth seasons. Gretchen Rossi joined one season prior to Alexis, but also left after the eighth season. Alexia and Gretchen started off as friends, but that friendship deteriorated and was well over by the end of their time on the show. While Tamra and Alexis never really got along, Tamra used to be good friends with Gretchen. That friendship ended on the eighth season. The premiere episode of Season 10 reminded viewers of how things used to be between Tamra and Gretchen by showing a past clip of Gretchen visiting Tamra as she recovered from her surgery to remove her breast implants.
While Alexis has been more quiet about the show ever since her departure, Gretchen has frequently spoken out about it. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, prior to the premiere of Season 10, Gretchen questioned Tamra‘s baptism.
“I don’t know yet [if she’ll be watching the new season]. I think it will be interesting to see some of the things that they’re previewing like Tamra Barney [Judge] supposedly being baptized and a born again Christian. I find that very odd and very ironic but I am also a believer of God and I’m a Christian and if that’s true then more power to her but I would be very surprised if it’s an authentic story.”
Gretchen also said that some of the current cast members fake their storylines.
“You know what, it’s funny that they are now claiming that this season is real because my whole thing is, are they saying that all the other seasons weren’t real? Because the truth is that I would probably say there’s a lot of girls out there that make up storylines every season and I happen to not be one of those people … So if they want to say that it’s real and honest this season, good for them but I would highly doubt it.”
As for whether Gretchen Rossi will invite any of the Real Housewives of Orange County stars, past and present, to her wedding to Slade Smiley, whenever that happens, she noticeably left Alexis Bellino and Tamra Judge off the invite list.
“Lydia [McLaughlin], Terry and Heather [Dubrow], Jeana [Keough], Lauri [Peterson] and Peggy [Tanous], and lot of the other housewives in other franchises would probably be invited.”
