In a new interview with fan favorite website All About The Real Housewives, Tamra dishes the dirt on her The Real Housewives of Orange County co-star, questioning their friendship and slamming her singing!
“Yes, it’s grown. We continue,” Tamra tells AllAboutTRH when asked if her friendship with Gretchen has blossomed this season.
“It made me open my eyes and question, ‘is this really what I want in a friend?’ I’m not saying we’re enemies, by any means – I still talk to her, but some things definitely come to light.”
When asked who her favorite Housewives singer is, Tamra doesn’t sit on the fence — and let’s put it this way, Gretchen does NOT make the grade!
“None! They all suck!” she retorts.
“But [Heather Dubrow] is a singer. She used to do it as a profession. She used to be a wedding singer and she had a big band that she sang with. She even used to sing at Disneyland. She’s extremely talented, but doesn’t want it to be a joke.”
“Sometimes people are afraid of the truth. I was hired to do a job and my job was to be real,” Tamra explains.
“I am not on the show to show the viewers what I want to show them. I show them what true life is. I don’t get up there and think ‘Oh, I’m not going to say this because I want everybody to love me.’ No, that’s not who I am.
“I was given a job and I’m doing it well. Andy Cohen refers to me as ‘the perfect Housewife!’ I take my job very seriously and when I sign a contract asking me to be real, I’m going to be real. If you’re going to do something stupid, I’m going to call you out. That’s what I’m here to do. I am not here to make friends and I tell every single one of the girls that. I’m here to do a job.
“I have Housewives from other franchises calling me and asking me ‘how do you do this?’ or ‘how do you balance this?’ and I say this: ‘I don’t lie, I don’t cheat, and I don’t exaggerate.’
“What you see me do is be honest. That’s what I’m here to do. If I could I would ask to only show my purse line, or request to get my hair done every day, but that’s not reality. I do have a sarcastic side and Bravo only shows a certain percentage of you, so if that’s all they show… They don’t see me as a mom. They don’t see a lot of my life. You do see a lot of sarcasm because they love my one-liners.”
