Tamra Judge Reveals Where She Really Stands with Andy Cohen After *That* Reunion Moment
Did Tamra and Andy squash their "beef" at BravoCon 2023?
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17 concluded with the final iteration of the two-part reunion on Oct. 11, and now, Tamra Judge is looking back at some of the drama that unfolded during the intense showdown — including a particular moment involving none other than reunion host Andy Cohen.
As fans may recall, said moment came when Tamra was discussing the rumor that Heather Dubrow had called the other Orange County ladies "losers." Heather denied making the remark, but as Tamra continued to insist she had indeed said it, Andy stepped in to tell Tamra, "By the way, you had said terrible things about everyone that was still on the show when you weren't on the show, too."
Tamra's response? "But we aren’t talking about that, so f-ck off."
Andy once again argued that there was a "double standard" Tamra wasn't seeing, and a brief back-and-forth ensued, but it ultimately ended with Andy laughing.
To see what Tamra has to say about the interaction now (including what she shared during BravoCon 2023), as well as find out where she stands with Heather, keep reading.
Tamra Judge Reflects on Her Reunion Argument with Andy Cohen
Speaking to her Two Ts in a Pod co-host Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave on a recent episode, Tamra explained that her frustration with Andy's response was mostly due to him bringing up the past when they were focused on the present. As she put it, "It’s like me saying, ‘But Teddi, in 2022 you said something bad about me. I’m like, ‘Why are you trying to change this scenario?'”
Regardless, Tamra insisted that there was never any bad blood between the two of them. "I have that kind of relationship with Andy that I can go back and forth with him," she explained. "Afterwards, he didn’t say a word. Then we were at Watch What Happens Live and Eddie [Judge]'s like, ‘I heard my wife went after you.’ He goes, ‘That’s nothing.’ We laughed about it."
Tamra Judge Squashes Her "Beef" with Andy Cohen at BravoCon 2023
At "The Reading Room" panel at BravoCon 2023, Tamra and Andy had the opportunity to clear the air about that reunion moment during a round of Squash that Beef.
"Tamra, you told me to f-ck off at your reunion," Andy reminded the RHOC 'Wife when they sat across from one another on the Vegas stage. "I think I was so dulled by the pain of sitting there for 10 hours at the time that it kind of washed over me."
When Tamra asked if Andy wanted to "fight about it now," the host shared that he wanted to "squash it." Tamra then apologized for making the comment.
"I'm so sorry, Andy Cohen," she said. "I love you!"
"I was just doing my job," Andy said in defense of what he told Tamra at the reunion.
Tamra Judge and Heather Dubrow's Friendship Today
The "loser" drama certainly wasn't the only thing Tamra and Heather clashed over during RHOC Season 17. However, the reunion ended with the two forgiving one another.
"We’ve always had a really good friendship, [but] I think coming back not knowing where my place was ... it really spun my head," Tamra said on the same episode of her podcast. "[But] now I don’t think we’ll ever go back to that."
As for the future of their friendship, Tamra added, "I’m going to L.A., hopefully seeing one of the two houses that she bought in L.A., hopefully both of them, and taking it back to where it was."
Plus, during the "Bravo's Showgirls" panel at BravoCon 2023, Heather revealed that the "goal is to move forward" with Tamra.
