“Real Housewives of Orange County” is airing Season 15 without former star Tamra Judge but her drama with ex co-star Shannon Beador is still going strong. Fans of the hit Bravo series were shocked when the two members of Tres Amigas, which also included Vicki Gunvalson, seemed to fallout after Tamra Judge decided not to return to the show earlier this year.
Tamra was demoted from head housewife to friend after appearing on “RHOC” for 13 seasons, beginning in 2007.
The Tres Amigas were the thickest of thieves after developing a close friendship when Shannon Beador joined the cast in 2009. Many Bravo fans were concerned Beador wouldn’t be back after it was revealed that not only was Tamra Judge walking away but so was “RHOC” OG Vicki Gunvalson, leaving Shannon to fend for herself against Tres Amigas hater Kelly Dodd.
Now, Tamra Judge is dishing on her recent fallout with Shannon Beador and even exposed the last test the ex-besties shared.
Speaking exclusively to RealiTea With Derek Z, the former star opened up about their disintegrating friendship. When the host Derek Zagami brought up Shannon Beador, Tamra Judge had some choice words for her ex-BFF. Putting the blame on Beador over the fallout, Judge said, “Shannon, stop contacting us, me and Vicki.” Revealing “it was very hard,” she added that she was in “disbelief that she had done that to me. I was sad. I got angry. I thought about all the times that I was always there for her.”
Insinuating that their friendship was no longer valued by Shannon after Tamra and Vicki’s departure, Judge continued, “And, you know, at the end of the day, she can change it to whatever narrative that she thinks is, you know, that fits her. But the truth is, it’s like shortly after within one month of me not coming back to the show, the phone call started dwindling.”
“And I’m like, wait a minute we talk like ten times a day all the time for the past three years, like, why are you not returning my phone calls? And that’s basically God, honest truth,” said Tamra.
When it comes to the last text message the duo exchanged, Tamra Judge claimed it was at the start of the pandemic and wasn’t friendly. “The last one I got from her was her saying, ‘Wow, Tamara, I can’t believe you’re doing this to me. Why can’t you just pick up the phone and call me if you’re mad at me?’ And I didn’t even respond,” Judge said, adding, “We talked in February a few times.”
Based on what Tamra said, this means the duo didn’t have any communication when Shannon Beador and her three daughters caught Coronavirus in July.
