Jill Zarin Clarifies Comments About Tamra Judge’s ‘RHOC’ Return And Reacts To Tamra Calling Her A ‘Thirsty B**ch’

Jill Zarin is clarifying the comments she made about Tamra Judge’s alleged return to The Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 17 and reacts to Judge calling her a “thirsty b**ch.”

“I read online that she’s coming back. I’m not a source. That’s what I heard,” she told E! News. “I don't know anything. I don’t know if she has a contract. That’s what I heard from other people. I don't know anything about anything except myself.”

The former Real Housewives of New York City star also took to social media to address the topic.

“I just have to straighten something out, this morning I was on my way to the event and I used an expression often breaking news buts it doesn't mean that there's anything breaking that wasn’t broken to me,” she said in an Instagram post. “I had read online that Vicki was not coming back and Tamra was and I said that.”

“I just repeated what I had read, I don’t have any inside information, nobody talks to me at Bravo, I know absolutely nothing, I just repeated the news that was already printed,” she continued. “I don’t know why Tamra attacked me today calling me a thirsty b**ch. Thirsty about what?”

She added, “I'm happy for you, you wanted this and I'm happy for you. Why is there any animosity? Anyways, um, we're gonna have to straighten that one out but congratulations anyway.”

Zarin along with her daughter, Allyson Shapiro, noted that they love Tamra and Vicki together. 

If you recall, Zarin spilled over the weekend that Tamra was returning to RHOC for the show's upcoming seventeenth season. “Tamra’s coming back, and you know, my friend Vicki [Gunvalson]’s not happy,” the Real Housewives of New York City alum said in a since-deleted Instagram Live video on Saturday, July 16.

Judge responded to the clip via Twitter on Saturday.  She tweeted, “Go f–k yourself @JillZarin! You thirsty bitch!”

Tamra then shared a video via her Twitter and Instagram Story where she slammed Zarin for commenting about her RHOC return. “Hey guys, I have a big announcement. Jill is the thirstiest bitch I’ve ever met.” 

Multiple sources revealed that Judge is returning to RHOC for the show's 17th season. “Tamra is thrilled to come back to the show, especially after feeling the fan love from her stint on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip,'” an insider told Page Six. “She can’t wait to get back in the mix on ‘RHOC’ and see how she can shake up the dynamic.”

Another source close to Judge also added that the next installment of the reality show is expected to “revolve around Tamra.”

Several Bravolebrities shared their thoughts on Judge’s return. “Obviously her presence has been missed,” Braunwyn Windham-Burke told Page Six during Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon in The Hamptons, benefiting the Bobby Zarin Memorial Trust. “She’s a staple on the show and they’d be lucky to have her.”

When asked about Judge’s return, Vicki Gunvalson said, “Good for her, I’m happy for her.”

The news comes weeks after Radar Online reported that Judge and former RHOC star Alexis Bellino were in talks to return to the series. Earlier this month, Dr. Jen Armstrong and Noella Bergener confirmed that they were not returning to the show after one season.
