Tamra Judge shocked fans when she announced she was leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County after 12 seasons. It also looked like she was burning bridges on social media while she was at it. Fans immediately noticed when Tamra unfollowed RHOC executive producer Andy Cohen, Bravo, and some of her costars. She’s finally addressing the drama and revealing what’s next for her.
‘RHOC’ alum breaks her silence
Tamra Judge spoke to Champion Daily about her surprise exit. She also addressed how she really feels about Andy. She claims that she still loves him no matter what. Her exit doesn’t affect her friendship with Andy. Tamra says she’s content with the changes that Bravo has been making with RHOC.
“I love Andy! I will always have a close friendship with him,” Tamra Judge said. “I enjoyed my 12 years on Bravo but I knew it was coming to an end. I’m not mad about Bravo’s decision but I am sad to lose a family that I love so dearly.”
Tamra continued to say that she still needs to “process” everything. She wants to get away from it all. But she’s happy to focus on her family and her fitness business again. Tamra also thanked her fans for their “love and support” that they’ve given to her during this time.
Tamra Judge asks for “a little bit of privacy”
Even though she announced her departure from the show, she still spoke to Andy. He told her that she will always be a member of the Bravo family and one of the OG housewives. Tamra spoke to Andy in an Instagram Live chat earlier this week, where she revealed that it’s best for the cameras not to follow her at this time in her life. In a teary-eyed response, Tamra revealed that she’s working through some personal matters at this time, as reported by The Daily Dish.
“I’m not going to go into detail right now, but I’m going through some difficult times right now and it was best for me to deal with it on my own,” she said. “I just need a little bit of privacy in my life right now.”
The reality star then turned on her Tamra Judge charm. She joked that her husband Eddie Judge is “very happy” that she’s not going to be naked on television anymore. While she claims that her time on RHOC was “a s**t storm,” she has no regrets about it. And it was clear during the chat that there was still a lot of love between Tamra and Andy.
Says she “needs a new career” following ‘RHOC’ exit
She’s not working on her next career move after her brief announcement. During Andy’s Instagram Live chat, the 52-year-old joked that she has to look for a new job now that she’s leaving Bravo. That’s when she revealed that she’s been studying to renew her real estate license, as reported by OK! Magazine. While Tamra has no plans to get back to real estate anytime soon, she still renews her license “every four years” because she’s “always looking for a backup plan.”
She joked that she’s “bored,” but that’s not the case. She has other interests going on. Tamra Judge is focusing on her Vena Wellness CBD business and CUT Fitness Gym, which she co-owns with Eddie.
Takes off on a camping trip
Tamra is filling that void with some family trips. The fitness trainer went on a getaway with Eddie, as reported by The Daily Dish. Over the weekend, she shared several photos from their trip, which they took on her Chanel dirt bike. In the caption, Tamra called it a “trip I’ll never forget.”
