Tamra Judge is spilling the tea when it comes to Vicki Gunvalson’s sneaky ways!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star recently appeared on Jeff Lewis’s Sirius XM radio show, Jeff Lewis Live, and made some shocking claims about her on-again, off-again BFF.
In the interview, Tamra accused Vicki of having her friends plant negative stories about their RHOC co-stars. Tamra also opened up about where she and Vicki stand following their shocking reconciliation at the last years RHOC reunion.
During the June 1st episode of Jeff Lewis’s Sirius XM radio show, Jeff and Tamra got to talking and not surprisingly the topic of conversation quickly turned to Vicki, who both have a history of feuding with.
If you’ve been living under a rock here the 411. Jeff and Vicki have been engulfed in a bitter feud for the last few weeks that continues to get uglier and uglier. Vicki claimed Jeff fat-shamed her while Jeff says Vicki tried to get Bravo to fire him. Things quickly escalated when Jeff accused Vicki of having her friend Cory Larrabee plant the tweet that initially accused Jeff of fat shaming Vicki. Dun dun dun…
Tamra basically confirmed Jeff’s suspicions by claiming that Cory has planted stories about the entire RHOC cast, including her, on Vicki’s behalf.
“A big part of the issue in the past few years [with Vicki], it wasn’t only that she was repeating a rumor, she was having Cory plant stories,” Tamra revealed. “Like right after her birthday party, he planted a story with all these bloggers. He actually did a post where he did a petition to get Eddie out of the closet. An actual petition. And this is her good friend.”
Tamra continued, “The thing is it’s really hard to be friends with somebody that’s friends with a guy like this, that’s doing stuff that’s very destructive. He does not make her look good.”
Jeff then chimed in,“Let’s just assume she’s innocent, which we all know she’s not. When you surround yourself with people like this, it doesn’t make you look good. And more than likely, if you’re associated with these kind of people, you’re probably in on it.”
Tamra then made an even more shocking claim: Cory is employed by Vicki!
“He does a lot of stuff on [Vicki’s] behalf. Like, he does a lot of stuff on Facebook Live and things like that,” said Tamra. “People are constantly sending me things. He was fat-shaming Shannon [Beador] a couple of years ago when she grabbed her stomach on TV and all that. He was calling her Shamu.”
If you think that’s bad, well it gets even worse. Tamra says that Cory threated to write a scathing review of Shannon’s recent QVC appearance.
“I heard he was writing for a blog or something like that. Shannon did her QVC [show] and he started posting on her Instagram, ‘Just wait till my review of you,’ and he puts laughing faces,” Tamra explained. “So, [Shannon] actually texts Vicki from the plane. She’s like listen, this is what Cory’s doing, he better not be doing some bad nasty review of my QVC. This is my business. And all of a sudden guess what? A really nice review came out.”
“I’ve told her that she needs to get rid of those type of people in her life. They don’t help her at all,” Tamra added.
However, Cory denies the claims against him. In a tweet, Cory says he’s never planted a negative story or fat-shamed Shannon.

Meanwhile, Tamra insists that she and Vicki are in a better these days.
“Well, you know what? We’re better now. Vicki and I are better and things are looking good,” Tamra said. “I feel like right now she’s in a much better place than she was a couple of years ago. She’s got a nice guy that she’s with. She’s happy. I feel like him being such a positive guy is making her better.”
The topic of conversation then turned to Bravo fining its employees. As previously reported Kelly Dodd was recently fined by Bravo for comments she made about Vicki.
Tamra revealed that she has been fined by Bravo while Jeff claims he’s never been despite Vicki’s attempts.
“I made the mistake of saying she should get fired,” Jeff confesses. Last year during an appearance on WWHL Jeff said Bravo should fire Vicki, which ultimately kicked off their ongoing feud.
“I said the same thing and I got fined,” Tamra added. “That’s why I got fined because I said she should be fired.”
Jeff then confessed that he’s never been fined by Bravo which surprised Tamra since Vicki told her the exact opposite.
“So you didn’t get fined? She told me you got fined and I said I don’t think that’s in his contract,” questioned Tamra.
“She has complained to Bravo numerous times about me,” Jeff explained. “I have not gotten fined because I have never signed anything in my contract that says I could get fined. I’m not that stupid because at the end of the day, I would owe $150,00 right now to Bravo and I wouldn’t make any money. So, I would never sign that.”
Tamra also chimed in on Vicki’s attempts to get Bravo to fire Jeff.
“First of all, none of us can get anybody fired. It just doesn’t work like that,” said Tamra. “I’ve been accused of getting Gretchen fired. I’m like I wish I had that power. I would fire so many people. That’s like a god complex. That I’m going to get you fired or I’m even going to try to get you fired.”
To wrap, Jeff revealed that his partner and radio co-host Gage Edwards recently pissed Vicki off even more. Gage reached out to Vicki’s son-in-law Ryan Culberson about their recent feud and to see if he would be willing to come on Jeff Lewis Live to discuss their drama. Not surprisingly, Vicki wasn’t happy at all and sent Jeff a nasty text making it clear he needed to back off! Yikes!
Spill that pipping hot tea Tamra! I love that Tamra is calling out Vicki’s bullshit! It amazes me the shit Bravo lets Vicki (and other Housewives) get away with yet they fine other Housewives like Tamra and Kelly. Not cool.
