TV Shows

RHOC alum Tamra Judge doesn’t think newbie Noella Bergener will last long on the Bravo show. Find out why.

Newbie slams Heather Dubrow as ‘complete narcissist’

Noella Bergener was one of the semi-new faces Bravo brought in for Season 16 of RHOC. She made a previous appearance on Season 15 as a friend of Braunwyn Windham-Burke.

During the filming of Season 16, Noella was served divorce papers from her husband, James Bergener.  The former couple was married for one year and share a two-year-old son.

Season 16 marks Heather Dubrow’s return to RHOC after four seasons.

On the Wednesday, January 12, episode, Heather Dubrow invited Noella over to confront her over calling Heather a “fake b*tch.” However, when Noella arrived, Heather was filming an infomercial.

In a confessional interview, Noella shared her belief that she was purposely invited so Heather could show off. She slammed her co-star as a “complete narcissist” after seeing the studio the Heather Dubrow’s World podcast.

The walls of the studio were covered in photos of the former soap star.

The confrontation ended with Heather saying she’s “not sure I’m the right friend for” Noella.

However, once she saw Noella’s confessional footage, Heather took to Instagram to set the record straight.

Heather brings receipts

There’s not much Bravoholics love more than receipts – proof that one person is telling the truth over another. In the case of the RHOC stars’ tense confrontation, Heather Dubrow showed proof that she didn’t purposely schedule a sit-down with Noella while filming an infomercial. 

The reality TV personality took to her Instagram to share text messages between herself and Noella. In the messages, Heather thanks Noella for agreeing to come over to her place the next day to hash things out. “Thank you for coming to my place – we have a whole weekend of shows at SHOP HQ so I’m a little locked in,” Heather wrote in the text thread.

Alongside the photo, Heather wrote a lengthy caption that Noella “comes over and pretends not to know” she was working. She further promised followers the issue would come up at the reunion.

RHOC co-stars Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter both left comments on Heather’s post. Gina left three heart emojis and Emily expressed excitement for the fireworks to come – “Can’t. Wait. For. The. Reunion.”

However, another former Bravolebrity chimed in with her thoughts on Noella’s future in the franchise.

Why Tamra Judge doesn’t think Noella will last long on RHOC

Tamra Judge may have left RHOC after Season 14, but she’s still got her friend Heather’s back. Tamra was quick to call out Noella’s behavior. “NOT COOL AT ALL!” she wrote on Heather’s Instagram post.

During her 12 seasons on RHOC, Judge has seen a lot of women come and go. In her opinion, Noella is just like those other women. “I’ve worked with housewives like that before & it sucks! But don’t worry they don’t last long.”

Is Noella’s time on the Bravo show coming to an end? In Tamra’s opinion, it is.

Heather Dubrow clarifies get-together timeline

Many of Dubrow’s social media followers took her side in the feud. However, one follower asked for further clarification. “You asked her to come over without a time? How did you know Noella was free?”

In a reply, Heather dropped a little behind-the-scenes info about the franchise. Production planned the meet-up between the two. “Our schedules were coordinated through production,” she revealed.
