RHOC’s Tamra Judge Reveals Reason Behind Fallout With Vicki Gunvalson & Shannon Beador


RHOC star Tamra Judge is giving fans a deeper look into her fallout with Vicki Gunvalson and Shannon Beador.

According to the Real Housewives of Orange County star her fallout with Vicki and Shannon mostly has to do with business but is multi-layered.

The 56-year-old told Entertainment Tonight that she “backed out” of the Tres Amigas live comedy tour due to scheduling conflicts as well as mixed feelings about the show itself.

“You know, it’s tough. It’s so twisted. And there’s so many layers to it, it’s hard for me to explain everything,” Tamra said, noting that the drama “is gonna be talked about” on the forthcoming 18th season of RHOC, which began filming earlier this week.

“But I didn’t do anything to either one of them,” Tamra insisted. She also claims that both Vicki and Shannon new back in November that she wanted to pump the breaks on the Tres Amigas due to having “too many things on [her] plate.”

“They had already known that. They know my schedule’s super busy,” the RHOC star explained. “I just didn’t have a lot of time to go traveling, and I guess Vicki didn’t like that, and now she’s calling me a traitor.”

On top of that, Tamra also admits she started to view the comedy show which heavily focuses on drinking and partying differently following Shannon’s September 2023 arrest for DUI and hit-and-run.

“It’s difficult. I think that people are gonna understand my concerns,” she confessed, noting that the Tres Amigas “should not have [continued with the tour] right after [Beador’s] DUI.

“I felt like she needed to concentrate on herself. … Conversations were had between us about it — and how I felt,” Tamra said of RHOC co-star Shannon.

At the same time, Tamra claims that she learned about “some things they had said about [her] behind [her] back” which “didn’t sit well” with her at all.

“In 2024 I’m not going to be around toxic people,” she said. “I don’t want friends that are stabbing me in the back and talking behind my back. So I wish them both all the success in the world, but until things change, you know, I don’t need to be a part of it.”

Meanwhile, on Tamra’s Two Ts in a Pod podcast with Teddi Mellencamp she further opened up about her fallout with Vicki and Shannon.

During the January 9 episode of Two Ts in a Pod, Tamra didn’t hold back and slammed her former friends for coming after her loyalty.

Tamra took major issue with Vicki questioning her loyalty when the RHOC OG “never once supported me in anything.”

The mom of four explains that: “We had a meeting in Arizona, and I basically said I have a very busy schedule and filming’s gonna start. I have Traitors press coming out and the reunion to do. And I said I think that you should find a backup because I don’t know how much I can commit to it.”

Despite Tamra being crystal clear with Vicki and Shannon they didn’t get the hint that she wanted out of the Tres Amigas. Tamra’s want to walk away from the Tres Amigas was further fueled by Shannon cutting her off over supporting Alexis Bellino’s relationship with John Janssen.

Then the Tres Amigas manager reached out about an opportunity for a show in Texas which is when Tamra made it clear she wanted to “say goodbye to the Tres Amigas.”

“After the last show experience, I just didn’t feel comfortable and I thought it was time for me to move on.”

She adds that neither Vicki nor Shannon reached out to her “to ask me why” I was done with the Tres Amigas.

Then Tamra says that Vicki started throwing shade at her in the press a few weeks ago before the news broke that she would no longer be a part of the Tres Amigas or be doing live shows with Shannon and Vicki.

Initially, Tamra said she let the shade from Vicki roll off her back but then when Vicki and Shannon announced their new live show and Vicki made a dig about her and Teddi’s Two Ts in a Pod podcast live show, Tamra reached her boiling point and fired back on social media.

“I thought it was time for me to move on. So Vicki started shading me in the press a couple weeks ago. She was just basically saying she wasn’t asked back, she won’t throw napkins in people’s faces [and] she won’t swear at people. She was just insinuating, like, you know, things about me, and I took the high road because I know how badly she wanted to be back on the show,” Tamra explained.

The longtime RHOC star continued:

“I didn’t wanna add fuel to the fire and all that stuff. And then they announced their two women show on social media. Now all Vicki did was send me a text message that was very mean. Uh, it went after my character. Now this is weeks ago and I’m like, ‘Woah, okay. Well, you know, whatever.’ So when they announced their the show and then Vicki reposted something that said about the Two T-Holes or something, I thought how rude. So I just decided I was gonna be a little cheeky. I didn’t mention their live show.

“In fact, when people Vicky started shading me in the press a couple weeks ago, I was just happy to be done. Like I felt like I took the biggest dump of my life. As I once said in a tagline, the best thing about starting over is never looking back. That’s how I feel,” she admitted

“It’s a long time coming. Eddie [Judge] is hugging me and clapping and doing all the things that I told you so, all of that. So I wish them all the luck in the world. I hope that their their show is successful. I want everybody to be successful. I want my friends, I want my enemies to be successful. I don’t care. You put in the hard work. There’s room for everybody,” Tamra concluded. “But [Vicki] writing the ‘Two T-Holes have nothing on Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and Doug Boudin live.’ We know what show you’ll be watching. I’m just happy to be done. Like I said, I felt like I took the biggest dump of my life.”

Bravo has yet to officially confirm the season 18 cast despite filming kicking off this week. Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
