Tamra Judge claps back after Vicki Gunvalson spread lies about what caused her to back out of their Tres Amigas live tour with Shannon Beador.
Vicki Gunvalson appeared on the February 2 episode of SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live where she shared her side of what caused the fallout between her, Shannon Beador and their former Tres Amigas group mate Tamra Judge.
According to the Real Housewives of Orange County OG, the Tres Amigas, which until recently consisted of Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, and Shannon Beador, signed with a manager, named Paris, who was thrilled to work with the Bravolebs for their live shows as he thought the tour would be a “big hit.”
Shortly after the trio signed with their manager, Shannon was arrested for DUI and hit and run in September 2023. Afterwards the trio were set to perform in Phoenix but Tamra Judge apparently had reservations. Since the Tres Amigas show mainly focused on booze and drinking, Tamra didn’t think it was appropriate to do since Shannon had just been arrested for DUI.
Despite Tamra’s concerns, the ladies went on with the show and it was a “big success,” according to Vicki Gunvalson.
Vicki then explains that when Tamra was in Scotland filming The Traitors, “she had second thoughts and came back and called Paris, not Shannon or I, and said, I don’t wanna be part of it anymore.”
“There was no conversation. She never said ‘I’m out.’ And I I find that really, uh, hurtful because I I thought we were in this together. And but she’s like, I’m really busy. I’m like, we’re all busy. We’re all busy. Anybody can back out of anything, but you give the people that you’re doing it with conversation,” Vicki said.
“From what I hear, She said we were talking about her behind her back, and I said, no. It’s actually in front of you,” she adds.
Vicki then said that she thinks Tamra’s assistant/social media manager Kaden is to blame for the drama being created between her, Shannon, and Tamra. In fact, Vicki believes that Kaden is the one telling Tamra that Shannon and Vicki are talking about her when it’s not true.
The OG of the OC then called Kaden a “troublemaker.”
On Friday afternoon, Tamra caught wind of Vicki’s comments on Jeff Lewis‘ radio show and she felt compelled to fire back on Instagram.
To start, Tamra called Vicki a “f–king liar” before insisting that most of Vicki’s claims were “absolutely false.”
“Hey, guys. It just came to me that, uh, Vicki was on Jeff Lewis Live today, and she had said some things that were absolutely false. Something about my about my assistant, Kaden, who is the most amazing employee that I’ve ever had. That he’s the one causing problems between the Tres Amigas. It is an absolute blatant fucking lie.
The reason why that I am not doing the Tres Amigas is because I caught, um, them talking behind my back, and that’s why. It had nothing to do with him. And it pisses me off to no end because he’s the sweetest guy, and he does so much for me and Eddie and my life and also helped out Shannon as well. So this is bullshit, and don’t listen to her lies.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County will return for season 18 in mid-to-late 2024.
