Andy Cohen still has a lot of love for Tamra Judge.
The “Real Housewives Of Orange County” star announced her departure from the long-running reality show, just days after original star Vicki Gunvalson announced her exit, but Cohen hopes she’ll be back.
On Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show “Andy Cohen Live”, Cohen already spilled on his hopes of Judge’s return.
“I’m hoping, and this is not lip service, that she will come back in some form, either this season or in the next couple,” the producer, 51, said. “Because I just feel like she is someone that I am always interested in, I always want to check in with her on.”
“She has been an incredible Housewife, she really has,” he continued. “She’s been dramatic, she’s vulnerable… she has been great.”
Judge spent 12 seasons on the reality series.
Meanwhile, Gunvalson, dubbed the “OG of the OC,” said on Friday that she is leaving the show, “I will always be the ‘OG of the OC’, but it’s time to say goodbye to ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’.”

I will always be the OG of the OC, but it’s time to say goodbye to The Real Housewives of Orange County. It’s been an incredible ride for 14 years and I want thank all of you for your support, for your love and for “whooping it up” with me along the way. I’ve been working on new projects that will be exciting, empowering and inspirational. My podcast with Westwood One will be launching soon and I will have much more to say about this on “Whoop it up with Vicki” . I hope you will join me with my new journey so please stay tuned. I love all my fans, and I want to thank Bravo and Evolution for this incredible experience which my family and I have will never forget. #bravo #rhoc #whoopitipwithvicki @westwoodone @bravo @whoopitupwithvicki
