Tamra Judge's Iconic RHOC Moments: "That's My Opinion!"

Now that it’s official that Tamra Judge is returning for Season 17 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra is sharing all about how she’s feeling about the big news. The announcement was made during the July 20 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, during which Andy Cohen and Tamra dished all about her big return.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

“Do you feel more energized coming into the new season having been out of the game? Does it give you a different perspective?” Andy asked. As fans will recall, Tamra, who joined in Season 3, exited RHOC back in January 2020 following Season 14.

“A thousand percent. A totally different perspective,” she said. “I think being off for two years is probably the best thing you could have ever done to me, even though I didn’t like it. But yeah, I was on the show for 12 years. Once you’re on for that long, you become a professional ‘Housewife.’”

She said that after the exit, “You go on to live a normal life, and you come back and you’re like, ‘I was kind of an a--hole.’ So you come back with a different perspective. And I saw that when I filmed [The Real Housewives] Ultimate Girls Trip. I totally felt it.”

Andy added, “So I do think that when you come back, it’ll be fun to see where your life is.”

Tamra teased of her life now, “Things will be totally different.”
