Tamra Judge spoke about the family crisis that influenced her decision to turn down a part time spot, on Thursday’s broadcast.
“You can f**k off,” Tamra Judge said that she told producers when she was offered a “limited role.”
Real Housewives of Orange County fans know that Tamra’s ex-husband, Simon Barney, has been battling throat cancer, and that the family has rallied together in support.
“You know how much I made my first year? Seven thousand dollars,” Tamra said. “My second year, fifty thousand.”
Vicki Gunvalson revealed that she was paid nothing for Season 1, and five thousand for Season 2.
Tamra noted that there are “cast members who don’t pay their taxes…across franchises.”
Tamra shared about a personal disappointment, in the wake of Simon’s upsetting disclosure.
“You know what really, really, really hurt me…is when Simon gave his interview to People magazine about his cancer and how severe it was, not one person from production reached out to me,” Tamra revealed.
Tamra Judge added that she had worked with several production pros for twelve years — but that no one offered any concern or support for her or her family. Vicki remarked that they were viewed as a “commodity” by Bravo — and that their “shelf life was over.”
