Tamra Judge’s return for Season 17 of The Real Housewives of Orange County has been known for a very long time.
In the initial weeks following her departure from the program, fans began to hear rumblings about an RHOC comeback.
This original cast member is now returning to a cast dynamic that is very different from the one she left.
And people, Tamra is about to let out a lot of pent-up rages.
Tamra Judge spoke to E! News about Season 17.
“It’s the best season we’ve had in many, many years,” she assured the cameras.
Viewers who took issue with aspects of the past couple of seasons will no doubt be relieved to hear it. Or apprehensive that it’s not true. Or a bit of both.
Tamra assured longtime fans that she “stirred up a lot of s–t” during her return to the show.
“I had a lot of built-up anger,” she admitted.
Tamra explained the source of this rage: “I don’t know, I guess. Been sitting on my ass for two years.”
Additionally, Tamra gushed that she feels “really good” about being back on the show.
“I felt at home,” she expressed.
Tamra then added that “It was something I’ve done for 13 years of my life.”
Tamra is well aware of how fans and viewers have a “love-hate” relationship with her.
Some fans love her. Other fans hate her. And frankly, some oscillate between the two or even experience both at once.
But Tamra wants everyone to know that she managed to keep things “interesting” while filming Season 17.
Tamra also teased that there is a “Tres Amigas” reunion of some kind, though we don’t know if it’s entirely amicable.
“We do not disappoint,” she hinted.
We wrote about how Vicki Gunvalson threatened an RHOC comeback and filmed for the show. At present, it does not appear that she reclaimed her Orange.
Tamra also enjoys a newfound friendship with another cast member: Emily Simpson.
She shared that she “loves and adores” Emily, quasi-shadily adding the word “now.”
Remember, Emily, joined the show before Tamra’s departure. And she has remained part of it ever since.
Tamra also spoke about how much her life has changed in just a couple of short years since RHOC viewers last saw her.
It is December, a month that boasts a plurality of many holidays across many faiths. But for Tamra, this time of year is “different.” Why? Because her kids are older.
“I only have one child at home… She’s 17… It’s a whole different thing,” she shared.
“So Eddie and I are looking at each other going, ‘Do we go away this year?’ What do we do?’” Tamra characterized.
Many families have experienced this transition. And countless more will go through it in time.
It will certainly be interesting to see what Tamra brings to the table upon her RHOC return. We expect Season 17 to premiere in early 2023!
