In January, longtime The Real Housewives of Orange County veteran Tamra Judge announced she would not be returning to the show as a Housewife. Since then, her ex-husband, Simon Barney, has revealed his cancer diagnosis, and Tamra shared her future plans. Still, Tamra's been on RHOC since Season 3, so it's definitely a big life change not to be filming. When she and husband Eddie Judge went on Kelly Dillon's podcast, Kickin' Back with Kelly, Tamra shared which O.C. ladies she still keeps in touch with.
"Friends that I've kept from the show would definitely be Shannon [Storms Beador], and Gina [Kirschenheiter], and Vicki [Gunvalson]," Tamra said. Fans might be surprised to know that she still talks to Shannon, as both Tamra and Vicki unfollowed her in March.
As for who she doesn't talk to: "I don't really talk to Emily [Simpson]," she said. 'I've never had a close relationship with her. And Kelly [Dodd], no. We ended on a bad note. I don't hate the girl by any means but we're just different. I'm a homebody; I stay home. She's a partier. So just different lifestyles."
Still, although she isn't in touch with them all, "in a small way, I'll miss them all, I really will," Tamra admitted. "I think as dysfunctional we were as friends and the way we called each other out and stuff, we were still friends. Me and Kelly really were still friends."
