Before we get to the big news, as I told you here, when it was announced that Heather Dubrow is coming back, and that Braunwyn’s BFF Noella Bergener was taking her place, Tamra Judge was fighting hard to return to RHOC. However, my source at the time felt like no monetary agreement would be reached.
Well, as usual, my source was correct. Tamra and Bravo/Evolution Media could not come to terms for her to return full-time this season. They are not going to pay her what she is asking/used to make. There is a possibility for her to return at a lower rate in a few episodes this season or come next season with a more humble negotiation stance.
