Get ready for Season 17 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, because we’re getting Tamra Judge back on our small screens, as well as her husband, Eddie Judge. And it turns out Eddie will be “very involved” in the new season. Tamra revealed just that during BravoCon 2022 when she sat down for a panel alongside the other RHOC ladies — including newbie Taylor Armstrong.

From there, Tamra dished a little more about her return to the RHOC cast, including what “surprised” her the most: “I was kind of surprised by how everyone was so nice to me,” she told a fan during the panel, held on October 16. “It was kind of like they were afraid of me when I came back.”

She also shared what she was “excited” about upon her return, sharing, “I really missed the crew. I really did. Like, the crew and everybody I’ve worked with for so many years… It was just fun to come back and be part of the group again.”

You can hear more from Tamra about all that by checking out the video at the top of this post.

Earlier in the weekend, Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter opened up about how they reacted when they heard about Tamra’s return to RHOC. They spoke about it with Wondering how they reacted? You can check out the interview below.

Tamra stepped away from RHOC following Season 14. She announced her return during the July 20 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “The Judge is back, and drama is in session,” Tamra said when she appeared in the Clubhouse that night.

“Do you feel more energized coming into the new season having been out of the game? Does it give you a different perspective?” Andy Cohen asked during the episode.

Tamra’s reply? “A thousand percent. A totally different perspective,” she revealed. “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.’”
