Years after the two women appeared alongside one another on “The Real Housewives of Orange Conty,” Tamra accused Gretchen of being obsessed with her before looking back on their infamous “naked wasted” moment on the Bravo reality series.
“She was so obsessed with me for so many years after she left, constantly putting stuff on social media, doing podcasts about me over and over,” Tamra explained.
Tamra Judge Has Blocked Gretchen Rossi On Social Media
According to Tamra, she was forced to block Gretchen from her social media accounts due to the negativity she was bringing her way.
“I just blocked her from everything,” she shared.
“She reached out to my daughter. She’s just done some really nasty things, so I just had to eliminate her and every time she’d comment about me, I’d have to keep my mouth shut because then it would give her more ammunition. So, just… obsessed,” Tamra explained, seemingly giving a nod to her oldest daughter, Sidney Barney, who she’s been estranged from on and off for the past several years.
Tamra Judge Defends The ‘Naked Wasted’ Moment Of ‘RHOC’
As for their memorable “naked wasted” moment, during which Tamra seemingly attempted to get Gretchen overly drunk, Tamra said that what she tried to do to Gretchen wasn’t as bad as it appeared on “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
“There was a backstory to that. The way it was edited and twisted was so far from what was really going on,” Tamra insisted, adding that she and her cast mates had been seeing Gretchen “out drinking and being a totally different person than we saw on the show.”
Tamra Judge Didn’t Intend To Get Gretchen Rossi ‘Naked Wasted’
“So we had this party and she was being really this conservative sweet little…. and we’d see her out and she’d be crazy wild. Naked wasted is just a term,” Tamra continued. “[We didn’t] really want to get her naked. It’s just a term we would use.”
While the phrase wasn’t intended to be taken literally, producers reportedly ran with the comment and made it seem as if Tamra was trying to get Gretchen to take off her clothing.
“They turned it into like, ‘I was trying to get her drunk.’ And I wasn’t,” Tamra stated.
Tamra Judge Had Nothing To Do With Gretchen Rossi’s Drunken Behavior
While Gretchen did get intoxicated, Tamra said that her interaction with her son, which seemed to be quite inappropriate, considering she was engaged at that time, was not her fault.
“She was drinking and her conversation with my son was their terms. I had nothing to do with that. It really turned into a really weird episode for me. I’m like, ‘That’s not what happened at all,’” Tamra recalled.
