‘Housewives Happy Hour’ With ‘Orange County’ Star Tamra Judge

ETonline invited Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge to be the first guest on Housewives Happy Hour, a new web series where we sit down with the stars of Bravo's hit franchise over cocktails to dish dirt on the current season, talk cast members old and new, and whatever else just happens to pop up. 

"I was afraid to start filming again," Judge told ETonline about season 10, champagne in hand. "I didn't want the drama. I didn't, want, like... I was scared. Me, scared!"

Thankfully for Judge, she had nothing to do with this season's initial drama -- that came courtesy of the show's newest housewife, Meghan King Edmonds, who immediately butted heads with season nine addition Shannon Beador.

"Oh, [Meghan's] been like a breath of fresh air, because, you know, I was always the a**hole" Judge joked. "And now she is!"

Judge dubbed Edmonds her "mini-me," so ETonline had to ask Judge if her relationship with the 30-year-old newbie is anything like her friendship with original O.C. star Vicki Gunvalson, who took Judge under her wing when she joined the show in season three.

"Now this is not going to come across very well," Judge said. "I don't always know when I can trust Vicki. But with Meghan, I can just feel like... she's always speaking the truth. The good, the bad, the ugly. And if you don't want to hear something, she's gonna tell you that, too. Where Vicki... [it depends] on the season."

Edmonds and Gunvalson weren't the only housewives Judge had opinions on -- she also opened up about Heather DuBrow -- she has "the mouth of a sailor" off camera, Judge said -- and Lizzie Rovsek, who was bumped from a series regular to a "friend" of the housewives this season.

"When she was brought back to the show, my first thought was, not a good [choice]," Judge said about the bikini designer. "And then she made it halfway through the show and then she was... brought down to a friend, so ... you have to be cut out for this business."

Judge also dished on a moment she dubbed "Bravo history:" her infamous fight with original housewife Jeana Keough, which ended with Judge throwing a glass of wine in her former friend's face. 

"I was so worried when I threw the wine in Jeana's face I was gonna go to jail," Judge said. "I went to bed with my makeup and my eyelashes [on] ... because I didn't want to have a bad mugshot! ... That was my moment on the Housewives going, 'What has happened to my life?'" 

You can see what's currently happening in Judge's life Monday nights at 9 p.m. EST, when The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo.
