Heather Dubrow Fires Back At Tamra Judge’s Claim That She Was Fired From ‘RHOC’ Due To A ‘Personal Conflict’ With Bravo; Says “You Know, No One Should Speak For Me Except Me”

Heather Dubrow is reacting to Tamra Judge's recent claims where the former Real Housewives of Orange County revealed that Dubrow was fired from the Bravo hit reality series due to ‘personal conflict’ with executives at the network.

“You know, no one should speak for me except me. So, if you want to know, ask me,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “But I will tell you this: I was five seasons on the show, which was an amazing run and there are so many great, fun moments on that show, and Terry and I got so much for being on the show. It did so much for our platform. It's brought so many amazing things to our family.”

“Even with my daughter, Max, that's why she has a platform and that's why she had a moment to speak out,” she adds. “She's actually starting a podcast, which I'm so excited about and she's giving a voice to teenagers that are maybe going through the same thing that she is in becoming aware of who she is as a person, and sexually and all these things -- and I love it -- and that is all based on the fact that we got catapulted into the spotlight from being on Housewives. So, I’m always forever grateful.”

Last month, Judge claimed Dubrow was fired from the show when she appeared on David Yontef's podcast, Behind the Velvet Rope.

Judge believed that “the show has not been the same since” Dubrow's exit and thinks it was production's “biggest mistake getting rid of her.”

“I think it was a personal thing, I really do. I think it was a personal conflict with an executive at Bravo,” Tamra said. When Yontef asked Tamra to expand on what “type” of personal conflict there was, she said, “Like, personality clashes. She wanted things done a certain way, but trust me, there’s people on the cast right now that are way worse. Way worse. On [the producers] like crazy, yelling and screaming, blowing their phones up … yeah.”

“I felt like [Heather] was amazing on the show. She gave the show a little bit of class, a little bit more class than it has right now,” Tamra continued. “She [always had] fun trips and exciting things planned for us and it’s not like something she just did for TV because she still does it.”

“Was she shocked she was let go?” Yontef asked Tamra, to which she replied, “Oh yeah. She took it bad. It was hard for her. She’s the one who taught me to unfollow everybody because it’s the easiest way to get over things. She was also offered a part time role and didn’t take it. I think what they wanted to do was sort of smack her around and say, you know what, here’s a part time role and then the next year they probably would have brought her back. But I’m just speculating.”

“It took her a while to get over it, too,” Tamra said. “[Heather] reached out to me as soon as she found out about [me getting fired] and she’s like, ‘I can’t even believe this! What is going on in the world?’ She told me [it took her] a while. She goes, ‘It probably took me three years to follow people and talk about the Housewives again.’”

Despite Tamra's claims, a source shared the following regarding Dubrow's exit: “Heather was offered something by production and turned it down, so she wasn’t really fired,” the insider told HollywoodLife.

Dubrow appeared for five seasons on RHOC. She first made her debut on the show's seventh season and announced her departure after filming the reunion for the show's eleventh season.
