Ree Drummond may portray a housewife on Food Network’s The Pioneer Woman but fans know she’s a true boss of a media empire. The cooking star has her own show, kitchen line, magazine, and much more. She also seems to be a fan of The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge. The two shared a cute interaction on Instagram that has fans giddy with the crossover.

The crossover we didn’t know we needed

Fans of reality TV love a good crossover and they were treated to one between the Food Network and Bravo. As viewers, we love to see our favorite stars interact with one another as we do with them on social media. Judge is an extremely active reality TV personality on Instagram who has been getting into TikTok lately.

The former RHOC star shared a stitch where she is seen reacting to someone popping a pimple. It was truly hard to watch but at the same time, you couldn’t help but to not take your eyes away from it.

Drummond was one of many celebrities that replied to the video. She said she had first passed the video but later returned and had seen the clip twice. Judge agreed that it was exactly how she felt as well.

Since their interaction, Judge has deleted the video from her Instagram account but it continues to live on the TikTok platform. Now, if only we can get someone to commission a show with Drummond and Judge.

Tamra Judge judges her former co-stars

Although Judge left RHOC after 12 seasons ahead of filming for season 15, there are rumors she will be returning to the show. The former star has been keeping close to Braunwyn Windham-Burke and feuding with Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd. In a recent interview, Judge talked about her former co-stars.

“Gina [Kirschenheiter] is extremely real. I feel like Gina is who she is, I don’t feel like she’s calculated… I just think she’s real,” Judge said on The Weekly Scoop with CJ on Instagram Live.

Since things are not well with Beador, Judge had nothing nice to say about her noting that she’s “very self-produced, extremely self-produced.”

When it came to Dodd, Judge believed she was “real.”

“I think what you see is what you get. I don’t think she tries to self-produce herself at all,” Judge added of Dodd.

Judge also said her friend, Windham-Burke was real because “she exposes a lot. She has a lot going on in her life, she has seven kids…”

Tamra Judge Chimes in on ‘RHOC’ Season 16 ‘ReBOOT’

When Judge made a Q&A on Instagram and had her fans ask her anything, one fan asked if she missed RHOC.

“I have very mixed feelings,” she replied on her Instagram Stories that Queens of Bravo captured. “It was a big part of my life for 12 years. Sometimes I miss it, but I’m OK without it. I really enjoy my friendships off camera with some of the ladies.”

“In my opinion, the current cast is the worst in OC history,” she added. “I definitely see a shakeup coming.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County is expected to starting filming season 16 in the coming weeks and air on Bravo later this year.
