Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador Defend Themselves Following “Train” Backlash; Plus Tamra Dubs Kelly Dodd the “New Brandi” After Brandi Glanville Calls the RHOC Cast ‘F–king Hypocritical’

Drama, drama, drama in the OC!

Following the “train” allegation, and the subsequent drama, on The Real Housewives of Orange County over the last two weeks, Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador are facing some major backlash from fans!

Fans came for Tamra and Shannon for continuing to discuss the “train” rumor about co-star Kelly Dodd after they vowed to never bring it up again during dinner at Tortilla Republic.

Both Shannon and Tamra took to their respective Instagrams to defend their actions.

Shannon, claimed when she and the ladies discussed the “train” rumors in the car after dinner they weren’t mic’d. In fact, Shannon says she didn’t know the car was still mic’d when questioning Tamra about why she brought up the “train” rumor.

“I refused to say anything until the cameras were off and no one was mic’d. And I made sure no one had a microphone on them when we got into the car. What I didn’t know is that there was still audio in the car after our dinner. #truth #notahypocrite#goodfriend #rhoc,” Shannon explained.

A fan quickly called out Shannon saying “that’s a lie” to which Shannon responded, “Nope. No one was mic’d. Didn’t know the car still had audio. I know my reality.”

Co-star Braunwyn Windham Burke came to Shannon’s defense commenting, “Shannon spent most of our “after” night trying to shut down this rumor, she really did not want this out there, also car cameras are huge and take up a ton of room, I always assumed if they weren’t in the car, we weren’t being recorded.”

Tamra backed up Shannon’s claims with her own statement. In her post, Tamra was adamant that filming was done for the night when the conversation in the car took place and had no idea they were being recorded.

“Lots of people are questioning why the 4 of us would talk about something private on camera then say “this lies and dies here”. The absolute truth is we were done filming, Not mic’d and had a private conversation (lot of it missing) between 4 friends. We had No idea our audio was being recorded, that’s why you don’t see our faces. #RHOC thank you @shannonbeador * let’s not forget Kelly knew she was being filmed when she yelled out the rumor about David & Eddie,” Tamra said.

In the comments of her Instagram post, Tamra then defended her actions more by claiming that Kelly’s done and said far worse over the last four years of RHOC.

“She has been nothing but vile for the past 4 years,” Tamra told one fan, who said “Kelly doesn’t have room to talk. The way she acts period and what comes out of her mouth says a lot too.”

Tamra continued, “Calls us all names, she’s the one that said Eddie was gay and David best Shannon.”

Another fan added, “Kelly literally has no class at all and is a complete hothead. It’s almost too much to watch with her.”

This is when Tamra decided to take a dig at Kelly and Brandi Glanville in one shot. Brandi recently had Kelly’s back and called the RHOC cast “f–king hypocritical.”

“She’s the new Brandi,” Tamra replied.

Brandi quickly caught wind of Tamra’s dig and responded in her own Instagram post.

The former RHOBH star shared a quote on Instagram that read, “People think they want this problem ’til they get it” along with a screenshot of Tamra’s dig. Brandi didn’t say anything in the caption and instead simply tagged Tamra.
