The emails are flooding in about a story just published on another website about Tamra getting fired. Everyone is asking me if it is true. So, I thought I would type my response here and just link everyone. Bravo sends out their pick up letters after the reunion episodes air. In these letters, the wives are either offered a contract for the upcoming season, or thanked for their services and given best wishes for future endeavors. The reunion has not aired yet, ergo, pickup letters have not been sent. No one know yet who is coming back. Bravos decisions have not been made. So my answer is, “I don’t know.”
HOWEVER, the fact that they include a scene of Tamra Judge screaming at everyone, including production about never seeing her again is tantamount to her quitting. While I am sure once she sobered up, she made up with production and worked out her contract, that would not sit well with Bravo. You sign up to be mocked and humiliated until the filming season closes. So strike one.
Then on WWHL recently, Tamra and Andy had a little tiff where she said something to the effect of, “I act like a bitch because that is what you pay me to do.” It was not so much her saying that, but Andy’s reaction that was telling. Andy likes to keep up the façade that the housewives shows are real and unscripted for the last 17 morons who watch who believe that. He was not happy with her. Strike Two.
Then her Facebook meltdowns over the past few days where she talks about production have been epic and ended with her Facebook account disappearing entirely. When Brandi Glanville talked about salaries on her podcast, she said she got in a lot of trouble with Bravo. I assume this will be frowned upon by Bravo just as much. Strike Three.
That being said, pick up letters have NOT gone out yet. And for now, this is all just speculation. Add to that the fact that Tamra left on a vacation with Eddie to some far away place today where she likely is taken a much-needed technology break, what better time for someone to come up with an unnamed source claiming she is fired?
If your question is do I think Tamra will be fired? It is not as likely as my description above makes it seem. Tamra has taken over the role of shit stirrer on RHOOC. Every show needs a villain. And everyone hates Tamra. Hell, she is all we talk about when it comes to RHOOC. I think this one is too early to call. If the reunion shows do as well as I suspect, we might not be done hating Tamra just yet.
