What does Tamra Judge think of Kelly Dodd?

Fans of RHOC know that Judge and Dodd butted heads throughout their time together. It was Dodd that called for Judge to be axed from the show in the past as she thought her story was “stale.” Judge has been extremely critical of Dodd in the past due to her aggressions against her. Dodd called Judge’s CBD business a “pyramid scheme,” which didn’t go well with the former housewife.

“I personally don’t understand that girl, I don’t get it. It’s just, such an evil heart and I don’t understand it,” Judge said on The Weekly Scoop with CJ. “I’ve talked about it with some of the cast members and I’m like, ‘That girl has got to be damaged inside, you have to feel sorry for her, because why is she so evil?’”

Despite all the beef they’ve had with each other, Judge believes that she could work things out with Dodd. The gym owner said that if she would’ve continued as a housewife on RHOC, she would’ve made up with her former co-star.

“There’s a very sweet, nice side [to Kelly] that I really like that I think sometimes she just lets her mouth move too much,” Judge told Us Weekly. “We don’t hang in the same circle, we don’t talk. … If I was on [the show], we probably would’ve made up. The one thing about Kelly and myself is we move on fairly easy. It’s not like we harbor bad feelings and hate and things like that.”

Does Tamra Judge think Kelly Dodd will be fired?

Dodd has been at the center of controversy lately and gotten severe backlash from the RHOC fans. The reality TV personality has made controversial statements about the pandemic that have put a lot of people of. After an incident at a restaurant in Orange County where Dodd cheered on to the phrase of “super spreader,” she was fired from Positive Beverage.

“Our core values of wellness, community, diversity, and inclusion should be reflected by our brand and anyone associated with it,” Head of Brand, Zack Muchnick, said in a statement. “It has become clear over the past few months that Kelly’s controversial views and opinions have distracted from our primary objectives, so effective today, we are no longer affiliated with Kelly Dodd-Leventhal.”

Sources recently told E! News that Dodd was expecting to be cut from RHOC and “although she would love to stay on the show, she has come to terms with it.”

Judge is not so sure Bravo will pull the plug on Dodd just yet and would rather wait until they make an announcement.

“I will believe that when I see that,” Judge told Us Weekly. “ I certainly know that she has rocked the boat many times when I was on the show … but I kind of feel like Kelly’s a tough one and everything just slides off of her. There’s never really been any real punishment for the things that she has done.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 16 is expected to start filming in the coming weeks.
