Tamra began with sharing how she got picked for The Real Housewives of Orange County, a story few know
“I think it was like pure accident,” she began. “So basically what happened was, um, I was living in Ladera. The kids were really little and my next door neighbor- we were IM’ing on AOL… She sent me over a application saying hey there are tryouts for the Housewives show. It had only been on two years at this time… I was like I am so boring. I’m a stay at home Mom. I do real estate part time. Nobody wants to see this mess.”
“And so, as I was drinking a glass of wine,” she continued, “I looked over the application online. I proceeded to answer questions like a twelve year old boy. Like sex- as much as I can get it… I was obnoxious. No pictures, no nothing. I hit send, not thinking in a million years they would ever call me. And they literally called me the next day and were like we got your application. We’d really like to meet you… So I told Simon at the time like, listen, this is what I did. They want to come meet. And I thought he’d say like no way because he’s super conservative. He was like call them. I called them, they came out, and they interviewed me. I remember them asking about Jeana Keough and I was just like, ‘oh that b*tch? I’ll run circles around her in real estate.’ I was just obnoxious… so they’re like, okay, here’s an application… can you fill this out and get back to us?… I put the application int he drawer and never filled it out, nothing.”
