“Bravo bosses wanted Tamra to be bridge from the old cast to the new in season 15 and she refused,” a source told Radar.
“Tamra got her pick up contract letter last, after the other ladies, and it had major conditions in it. She was even more than demoted to a friend role. She’d have very little camera time. And it meant she would earn next to nothing in reality TV terms.”
“She would go from $900,000 a season to $20,000 an episode for just three show appearances, which would add up to $60,000 total. It was humiliating.”
“So Tamra walked away,” the source said.
