Former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge gave fans an update on the status of her friendships with former cast mates on Thursday. The fitness buff answered fan questions on Instagram about how she currently felt about Vicki Gunvalson, Gina Kirschenheiter, Kelly Dodd, and Shannon Beador.
A fan asked if Tamra missed her former friend, Shannon. The two were very close when filming The Real Housewives of Orange County, although their friendship seemed to end after it appeared the two had an unknown falling out earlier this year.
The timing of the falling out aligned with Shannon’s reconciliation with current housewife, Kelly. Shannon and Tamra famously feuded with Kelly during Season 14. The CUT Fitness owner wasn’t too happy her friend was no longer in her life, as she admitted to missing Shannon “a lot.” The response even ended with a sad emoji.
One relationship that remained strong for Tamra was her one with Vicki. Despite all of their ups and downs, she said she considers Vicki a loyal friend.
“How do you and Vicki stay close friends after all the bad talking previously,” a fan asked Tamra.
The reality star insisted that “the show is about drama” and that the friendship remained firm.
“@vickigunvalson is very kind to me and my family. I could call her anytime and she will be there for me,” Tamra wrote.
One cast member that the fitness mogul has not had any issues with is Gina. Tamra was the reason the Long Island native joined the show and the two remain close to this day.
“I’ve always been friends with @ginakirschenheiter,” she confirmed.
The blond reality star went on to call Gina “the most authentic person on RHOC.” She insisted that the young mom was upfront and that there was “no bullsh*t from that New Yorker.”
Tamra didn’t touch too much on her relationship with Kelly, although she did write that she would rather have her on the show over Gretchen Rossi. Kelly was also part of the group Tamra made of her “Favorite RHOC” cast. That list also included Vicki, Shannon, Meghan King Edmonds, and Heather Dubrow.
One cast member that did not receive a mention from Tamra was Emily Simpson. The Orange County lawyer has not had the best relationship with her fellow reality star. As The Inquisitr previously reported, she considered Emily to be boring and went so far as to call her “dead weight” on the show.
