Tamra Judge’s worst nightmare might become a reality when the Real Housewives of Orange County returns for Season 13. Inside sources claim that Bravo producers are trying to get Judge’s longtime nemesis, Gretchen Rossi, back on the show next season. Although things have finally cooled down between Judge and Vicki Gunvalson, it looks like Judge is headed for another drama-filled season.
According to Radar Online, not only are producers looking to bring Rossi back but a source claims that she is interested in returning to the show. The only catch is that Rossi is looking for a huge payday to return to the RHOC and she won’t settle for anything less.
The source says that Rossi wants a contract similar to Gunvalson, who made an estimated $750,000 last year alone. Although that is a lot of money for Bravo to dish out, producers believe that Rossi is worth the payout. Given Rossi and Judge’s troubled past, they might be right.
Producers are banking that Rossi and Judge continue their feud and there’s no reason to believe it won’t. In fact, the source believes that Rossi will never make amends with Judge. The two RHOC stars apparently dislike each other so much that they will remain enemies in Season 13, despite the fact that Gunvalson made things right last season.
Further, Rossi and Gunvalson are good friends and will likely team up against Judge moving forward. This has the potential for some explosive drama next season, especially considering how things unfolded this past year.
The Hollywood Gossip reports that the feud between Rossi and Judge is alive and well, even though the former cast member is no longer on the show. The fighting took a nasty turn this summer when Rossi commented on a post made by Judge’s estranged daughter, Sidney Barney.
In August, Barney blasted Judge for being a terrible mom and accused her of using their relationship to generate drama on the RHOC. Judge’s relationship with her daughter has gone through a lot of ups and downs over the years and it is definitely a sore subject for the reality star. But that didn’t stop Rossi from chiming in on the situation.

Shortly after Barney’s post, Rossi replied on social media and thanked Barney for speaking out about bad parenting. Rossi told Barney that her words will help children around the world who find themselves in similar situations. Judge didn’t respond directly to Barney’s comments, but it is clear that Rossi is trying to make friends with Judge’s daughter. The situation will likely lead to an explosive confrontation in the coming season, but only if producers can get Rossi to return to the show.
Rossi has not commented on the likelihood of her returning to Bravo’s hit reality series. The Real Housewives of Organic County just wrapped up Season 12, so it will probably be a few more weeks until we hear anything about casting. For Tamra Judge’s sake, we can only hope that Gretchen Rossi doesn’t make the cut.
