At least one housewife doesn’t believe Brandi Glanville’s claims about exiting the Bravo franchise.
“Bulls**t. Nobody leaves the Housewives show,” Tamra Judge tells ETonline in a new sit-down interview.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star is reacting to the news of Glanville’s exit from the Beverly Hill series, which Glanville says was really tough on her.
“I gave my all to the show and then when it aired I felt like, 'Oh my God, they did me no favors in the editing room,'” Glanville told Howard Stern during an interview on his SiriusXM show. Last season saw her become the main villain among her fellow housewives, Eileen Davidson, Yolanda Foster, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Lisa Vanderpump.
During the same interview, Glanville also opened up about her salary, which first started at $16,000 when she was just “a friend” of the series and suggested that it eventually ballooned up to nearly a half-million dollars.
“We have the same production company and her numbers do not match up,” Judge says, refuting claims that Glanville was offered such a steep salary. “I know who she's negotiating with.”
“OK, so let's just put that on the table right now,” the RHOC star continued. “I'm going to offer you $500,000 to work four months out of the year and you decide, ‘No. I'm going to try to find another job.’ No. Sorry.”
Regardless of what Judge thinks, the former housewife says she has new priorities.
"I have so much more on my plate than this show," Glanville explained to Stern. "I talked to producers; I really didn't want to come back. I have other offers to do other things and I said, 'Listen, I will come back if it makes sense -- if it's with Yolanda or of it's with Kim. Otherwise, I don't talk to any of the other ladies, and I don't like them."
While Glanville is out, Judge is still making an impression on the 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.%perl>
