Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge is reportedly desperate to get cast member Kelly Dodd fired from the show.

"Tamra is desperately trying to get Kelly fired right now because she thinks that Kelly is the only person standing in her way of staying on the show forever," a source close to the cast told Radar Online.

Kelly may well be the reason that OG Vicki Gunvalson got demoted after Vicki accused Kelly of taking cocaine during last season's reunion show. Kelly demanded that Vicki be fired or that she'd walk.

Tamra is reportedly scared of history repeating itself. Tamra cannot afford to lose the gig, as she is running low on cash after shelling out for her husband's medical fees. 

 "Tamra's grabbing for straws right now. She saw what happened to Vicki when Vicki got into with Kelly, and Tamra is terrified that she could be next. She's not too off for thinking that way. In fact, she's probably right," said the insider.
