AceShowbiz - Following news of her departure from "The Real Housewives of Orange County", Tamra Judge unfollowed her former co-stars and also the show's executive producer Andy Cohen on social media. However, she revealed that she had no bad blood with them despite the action.
The 52-year-old explained why she did that when she joined Andy's Instagram Live on Monday, January 27. "Why did you unfollow everyone, including me?" Andy asked Tamra, who later responded, "I actually did that when I got the news. So I got the news when I was camping. I had no (cell phone) reception."
"I got a text message a couple hours before I left for my camping trip that I have a production meeting, that we're going full force, I know you haven't gotten your contract, so I thought, 'Ok, I'm good. I'm good right?' " she went on explaining.
Tamra then continued saying that she went on her camping trip and ended up driving to a place where she could get reception to check on daughter Sophia Barney. "I drove down the street and I got a text message from production saying, 'Call me,' and I was a little bit in shock. And because I knew it was going to be a s**tstorm," she said.
"I didn't want to read about it, I didn't want to see it. I didn't want to be hurt any more than I already was. So I just unfollowed everybody. It was just like my instinct. Out of sight, out of mind. I don't have to see it. Now I'm good. I've accepted it," she added. "I have two businesses, I have two houses."
After Tamra said that "RHOC" made her a "rich b***h," Andy said, "Don't cry because it's over, just smile because it happened."
Tamra announced her departure on Saturday, January 25, saying, "It's been a wild ride, and after all these years, I'm looking forward to life away from the cameras. I was offered a chance to come back to the show in a limited role, but would prefer to walk away on my own terms." It was said that she was walking away from the Bravo reality series, and her decision was prompted by the salary pittance that's offered to her.
