The ‘RHOC’ cast ‘didn’t know what to make’ of news that Tamra Judge might resurface on ‘RHOC.’ Now, a source reveals how the cast feels after processing the possibility!
There are many changes happening to the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and the ladies weren’t expecting this latest curve ball. Nearly a month after Tamra Judge, 52, confirmed she’s leaving the Bravo show after 12 years of being a main cast member, there’s now talk about Tamra’s future on the show — from the RHOC alum herself! “The ladies of the RHOC were shocked to hear that Tamra will be returning for this season,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife, after Tamra went on the Feb. 20 episode of Radio Andy’s Jeff Lewis Live to claim that Andy Cohen told her “to hold off on signing any kind of contract [with another show].” Andy wants Tamra to “run” other offers “past him first,” because the executive producer said she’ll be back on RHOC “next year,” according to Tamra!
Following that shocker, a new report claimed that Tamra’s “in negotiations to return as a ‘friend’ on The Real Housewives of Orange County,” and that she’s “working out a deal that would bring her back for more than three episodes for between $20-25,000,000 each,” per Radar Online. HollywoodLife has reached out to Tamra’s rep for comment, but whether this is true or not, the speculation alone is surprising for her co-stars. “They thought she was done for this season so they didn’t know what to make of it when the news came out,” our own source continues. “Everything is still very up in the air about Tamra filming, if it’s actually happening soon or not, in what capacity, etc. They have all been kept in the dark about what capacity that is as Tamra herself doesn’t even know the plan, so they’re all anxiously wait
