After seeing that Shannon had slammed her during a number of interviews as she promoted the new season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” earlier this month, Tamra shot down Shannon’s suggestion that she went to the press to bash her before taking to her directly about their strained relationship.
While chatting with Derek Zagami on the October 20 episode of his series, “RealiTea With Derek Z,” Tamra said she never publicly bashed her former bestie.

“I’ve never gone out there and bashed her in any way. Shannon stopped contacting us. Me and Vicki,” Tamra explained. “And it was very hard and I went through disbelief that she had done that to me. I was sad. I got angry, thought about the all of times I was there for her.”

According to Tamra, Shannon has tried to manipulate the story of their falling out to make herself look better.
“At the end of the day, she can change it to whatever narrative fits her but the truth is shortly thereafter, within one month of me not coming back to the show, the phone calls started dwindling,” Tamra recalled. “And there was like, ‘Of course I’m still your friend,’ and ‘I’m just busy.’ And I’m like, ‘We’ve talked 10 times a day for the past three years. Why are you not returning my phone calls?’”
Shannon Beador Wasn’t Happy When Tamra Judge Confirmed Their Feud
While Shannon quit talking to Tamra shortly after she left the show, Tamra received a mean message from her after she confirmed their falling out publicly.
“The last one I got from her was her saying, ‘God Tamra, why are you doing this to me? Why can’t you just pick up the phone and call if you’re mad at me?’ And I didn’t even respond. I’m like, ‘Listen, I have texted and called you so many times with no response. Why are you even saying this? You’re not returning phone calls or texts,’” Tamra shared.
