Real Housewives of Orange County season 16 is returning to our screens on Wednesday but Tamra Judge is getting the drama started early.
The RHOC veteran may no longer be in the cast but she’s still got a bone – or several – to pick with ex co-star Shannon Beador.
And something tells us that she’s not happy…
Ahead of the new episodes, Shannon was questioned on whether she hoped that her former best friend and OG Housewife Vicki Gunvalson would return to the franchise, and admitted that she didn’t.
‘Was I hopeful? No…,’ she told Access Hollywood. ‘She [Tamra] was my best friend for six years but after she left the show, she’s been out there in the press quite often, saying things about me that are untrue and so I’ve chosen to not engage and not address it.
‘It’s over and over and it’s still happening. We’re almost at the two-year mark, it’s sad.
‘We did have a lot of fun so that’s what does make it sad.’
Hitting back at her words, Tamra unleashed her fury in the comments section of TV Deets’ Instagram page, after they shared a snippet of the chat.
‘Is your ass jealous of your s**t??? All I’ve ever said is that she stopped talking to me shortly after I got let go (Vicki too) & how bad it hurt me when I needed her the most,’ she penned below. ‘I was always there for you.
‘IF THE TRUTH HURTS SO BE IT! You s**t on me! That’s why you can’t keep friends. I spent so many years talking you off a cliff all hours of the night! Protecting you, doing your dirty work, making excuses for me. Shame on me!
‘I should have seen through your craziness back then! I’ve seen the first episode. You’re being exposed for the mastermind manipulator you are… So happy Gina and Emily expose you. Bye b****.’
After some rollercoaster rows, Shannon remained close with Tamra and Vicki for years, dubbing their bond the ‘Tres Amigas’.
However, things fell apart when the latter two left RHOC in 2019, at the end of season 14, while their pal continued on the show.
Something tells us that the new OC series will be more explosive than the last…
Heather ‘Fancy Pants’ Dubrow will be back on our screens in the new episodes, following the departures of Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Vargas.
The actress was previously a fan favorite, and recently confirmed that her entire family — including her husband, Botched doctor Terry Dubrow – were all eager for her to rejoin.
We can’t wait to finally get a look at their wildly expensive house.

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 16 premieres on December 1 on Bravo.
