Even though she was in front of the cameras, Tamra Judge often had a producer mindset during her time on “RHOC.” She knew exactly how to move the season along, and wasn’t afraid to be the villain by repeating rumors or switching alliances at the drop of a hat. These days, she’s showing off her reality TV savvy on “Two Ts in a Pod,” co-hosted by former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Teddi Mellencamp. On each episode, they recap the reality TV news cycle with insider knowledge, including their former shows. Given how unpopular both Judge and Mellencamp were at the end of their runs, they’ve seemingly given up on trying to make fans happy and have resigned to giving their unfiltered opinions. After all, Judge has lots of those.
Much like her own time on “RHOC,” Judge’s feelings on the show as a viewer have flip-flopped dramatically. She began watching season 16 with a vendetta against former friend Shannon Beador, who she claims ghosted her after her firing, but has been sticking up for her in recent episodes of “Two Ts in a Pod.” Likewise, she’s surprisingly spoken out against Heather Dubrow, one of the few cast members she never feuded with during her time on the show. Some viewers have accused Judge of saying whatever she thinks will get her back on “RHOC,” and while it hasn’t happened yet, she’s partially gotten her wish.
