Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge got into a nasty online war of words during the season 14 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and RadarOnline.com exclusively learned the war is far from over!
After the ladies stopped slamming each other on Twitter under the direction of Bravo bosses, insiders reveal their feud has now "exploded" offline!
"Tamra is desperately trying to get Kelly fired right now because she thinks that Kelly is the only person standing in her way of staying on the show forever," a source close to the cast said.
The feisty blonde didn't want to end up in the same position as her co-star Vicki Gunvalson, who has been demoted to a "friend" this season. "Tamra's grabbing for straws right now. She saw what happened to Vicki when Vicki got into with Kelly, and Tamra is terrified that she could be next."
"She's not too off for thinking that way. In fact, she's probably right," said the informant.
As fans know, the two have been estranged for months after Tamra, 51, allegedly got caught telling co-stars and friends that Kelly, 43, was abusive to her mother. Kelly's mom has since denied Tamra's tales.
After a cooling off period, Kelly took a jab at Tamra during the premiere over the fact that Tamra was boasting on the show that her brand new $2 million home was in one of Orange County's most "prestigious gated communities."
When a fan pointed out to Tamra that "$2 million is not rich for that area," Kelly added to the chain, "You can't buy a tear down in Newport Beach for $2m. Coto is a nicer Temecula."
Needless to say, that did not sit well with Tamra, who fired back, "Do you even own a house? I own 2."
Tamra and Kelly then spent several hours engaging in some serious shade slanging before ending the bitter battle and deleting most of the tweets.
"Kelly is really just done with Tamra and Vicki. She wishes that people would see the truth https://radaronline.com/videos/rhoc-kelly-dodd-slams-estranged-brother-eric-meza/. Tamra didn't move because she wanted to, she moved because she ran out of money over Eddie's hospital bills and the Jim Bellino lawsuit," the source added.
"Tamra can say whatever she wants because she will be gone next season just like Vicki is."
