Why Jill Zarin Called Tamra Judge ‘Thirsty’ At BravoCon

I’m not giving up! Jill Zarin included the script Tamra Judge — and he called out The Real Housewives of Orange County star as their clash brought to BravoCon 2022.

The The Real Housewives of New York alum, 58, exclusively told Us Weekly on Saturday, October 15, that “nothing” is going on between her and Judge after the California native, 55, slammed her once again for allegedly screwing up RHOC Zvezda’s return.

“I think it’s just rehashing some old stuff and she’s trying to get — she’s probably very thirsty to get her, you know, stuff,” Zarin said Us while attending BravoCon, teasing, “But I have bills so we can talk about it with Us Weekly later.”

The native New Yorker noted that she plans to show those alleged accounts at some point, insisting that the drama was not her role.

“Actually, I didn’t start it, but I’m happy to finish it,” Zarin said of the ongoing issue between her and the judge. “I’m tired of, like, kind of being stepped on, like, you mean[ing] I will not fight back.”

She concluded, “Like, I’m not an instigator and I’m certainly not malicious. Nothing I do is malicious, but if someone is just trying to change my history, I have to make it right.”

Zarin originally made waves in July when she announced that Judge was returning The Real Housewives of Orange County after a two-year break. (Judge left the franchise in January 2020 after 12 years. She will be a regular cast member for Season 17.)

“Tamra is coming back, and you know it, my friend Vicki [Gunvalson]I’m not happy,” Zarin said in a since-deleted Instagram Live video.

The judge, for her part, saw the revelation and responded by telling the Housewives via Twitter, “Fuck @JillZarin! You thirsty bitch!” Zarin later told her followers that she “read online Vicki wasn’t coming back and Tamra was — and I said that. I just repeated what I read.”

During Friday, October 14, the recording of Watch what’s happening live! With Andy CohenZarin and Judge faced off in the “Squash That Beef” segment.

“I’m sorry,” the Secrets of Jewish Mothers said the author after the host Andy Cohen filled the BravoCon crowd with all the drama. “I didn’t know it was a secret. I wasn’t doing it to try and steal your thunder.”

The judge, however, did not accept the apology and instead retorted: “What the hell do you think you are? Who the hell do you think you are to kick me out for coming back? It wasn’t your place.”

The founder of Vena CBD also slammed Zarin for sharing the news in an outlet where she was allegedly paid to do so. Founder Jill Zarin Home, for her part, confirmed that she “has a subscription” to Instagram where she’s paid for content, but insisted she didn’t deliberately push Judge’s return.

The judge was still upset by the incident when she spoke to him Us on the second day of BravoCon. “I didn’t like what she did,” she exclusively said Us on Saturday. “I don’t like that she went and put it on her subscription or whatever it is where she gets paid [create content].”

The “Two Ts in a Pod” podcast host continued: “She knew what she was doing. I’ve been waiting two years to come back, and I wanted to – we were in talks, Andy and I, to make this big announcement. And she went and said.”

The judge called Zarina’s actions “kind of shitty”, noting that she “wouldn’t take it [moment] away from anyone.” In fact, the reality star noted that if Gunvalson, for example, were to return to the show, “I wouldn’t want it leaked on my podcast. You know, you just don’t. Let someone have their moment.”
