Noelle Bergener took to her Instagram Story on Tuesday to leak a series of text messages she exchanged with Tamra Judge in regard to the swirling cheating rumors about Heather Dubrow‘s husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow.
After the Real Housewives of Orange County cast appeared at a panel event at BravoCon, where Tamra claimed to have received a text message from Noella, in which the former cast member thanked her for allegedly “exposing” Terry’s rumored cheating, which Tamra denied doing, Noella leaked their conversation.
“She said it’s a lie,” Tamra wrote, as seen in Noella’s October 18 screenshot.
“That’s her go to word lol … someone get the girl a thesaurus,” Noella replied.
After laughing at Noella’s thesaurus suggestion, Tamra wanted to know where Noella had heard that Terry had allegedly been unfaithful. And according to Noella, she’d heard the claims from “friends.”
Along with the sharing of the text message exchange, Noella included a “for the record” hashtag.
In addition to their chat about Heather and Terry, Noella and Tamra, who were never cast members at the same time on RHOC, as Tamra left after season 14 and Noella wasn’t added until season 16, exchanged pleasantries.
“Hope you’re doing well,” Tamra sent, along with a heart emoji.
“Thank you love. You too. Love to the fam,” Noella replied with two heart emojis.
During the RHOC panel at BravoCon, after Heather shot down the rumors of her husband’s supposed infidelity, saying, “Success breeds contempt. Don’t forget that,” Tamra suggested Noella wanted the rumors to be shared.
“[Noella] texted the other day,” Tamra said, via Us Weekly. “She said thank you so much for exposing Terry cheating. I said I didn’t do that.”
At the end of last month, an insider sent a tip to Deux Moi on Instagram, titled “cheating allegations in the O.C.” And in the message, it was alleged that Heather had stopped filming RHOC.
“This housewife has not been seen filming with her colleagues for weeks. Word on the street is her [husband’s] affairs surfaced, and we know who is not afraid to air it all out!” the supposed tip stated.
But after Bravo Housewives on Instagram shared the same report, Heather fired back.
“This is not true, on any level,” she confirmed in a comment.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 is expected to begin airing on Bravo sometime in early 2023.
