That settles that, but one of Tamra’s current RHOC castmates has indeed kept in touch with Gretchen: Heather Dubrow

Heather and Gretchen were spotted together in November 2022, and Tamra shared her thoughts about the hang-out on the podcast she shares with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.

“Don’t care,” Tamra said. “No opinion. Do not care.”

She added that she has “no relationship, friendship whatsoever” with Gretchen. As for Heather, she’s “a grown-ass woman,” Tamra said. “If that’s who she wants to hang out with, then so be it.”

Heather also keeps in touch with another RHOC alum, Alexis Bellino. During an appearance on the June 21 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the titular host asked Heather where she stands with RHOC alum Alexis today.

“We’ve been talking for the last few years,” Heather said, much to Andy’s surprise. “Actually, our kids — a couple of our kids — were in a play together three or four years ago and we connected back then, and we’ve been talking ever since.”
