Tons of tea was spilled on “RHOC” this week with most of it getting poured on Tamra Judge. During Tuesday’s episode, Kelly Dodd finally learned who was actually spreading the train rumor. While she had been busy blaming Vicki Gunvalson for dishing on her bedroom business, her co-stars finally revealed that it was actually Tamra who brought it up on camera first. During the episode, fans watched several of the housewives express their concerns over their friendships with Tamra including newcomer Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who confided in Emily Simpson that she felt backstabbed by the OG. Last week, Braunwyn told the group about a situation that went down with Kelly and her then-boyfriend, Dr. Brian Reagan, after Tamra and Shannon Beador brought up an alleged “bar fight.” While Braunwyn claimed she was just trying to clear up the confusion, Tamra went and ran her mouth to Kelly insinuating that Braunwyn was spreading rumors. When Kelly confronted her via phone, Brauwyn attempted to explain the situation but with Tamra in her ear stating she was lying, Kelly ended up hanging up on her.
Fast-forward to this week, Braunwyn, Shannon, Emily, and Kelly sat down for dinner sans-Tamra so the group could discuss the situation from the weeks prior event. After learning the truth, Kelly apologized for ripping into Braunwyn, who then told her Tamra brought up the “train” rumor first. Calling Tamra “a snake” and “two face,” Kelly responded, “Tamra always acts like she’s my best friend. She’s the biggest two face!” She later addressed the situation to cameras. “I think this is part of Tamra’s pattern. She is somebody that likes to throw a little bomb and then walk away,” she said. “Tamra was actually the one that was spreading the train rumor! I had no idea! I always thought it was Vicki! I am completely shocked, disappointed, it makes me sick to my stomach that I even trusted this woman.” During dinner, Emily brought up her issues with Tamra and stated that she didn’t try to make the situation better after she fixed Gina up on a failed date. “She likes to stir up problems between other people and then she acts like she has clean hands, like she didn’t do anything,” Emily told the girls.
Shannon felt very uncomfortable about the girls talking ill of her best friend. When she attempted to jump in to defend Tamra, Kelly told her that Tamra’s been talking smack about her too. “You should see the s— that she says about you!” Kelly Dodd told Shannon. “I’ve had hours and hours of conversation with Tamra about you.” Shannon was clearly stunned and responded, “About me?! Are you serious? Negative?” Kelly also told Shannon that Tamra had been saying she’s “‘kissing every guy at the bar.’ She called Gina last night, and she told Gina, ‘Why don’t you, me and Kelly room together on our next trip?’ Uh-huh. She said that to Gina. Oh, and then she told me when I bonked you on the head, she’s like, ‘Oh, there was nothing wrong with her.’” Maybe the biggest dagger Kelly claimed Tamra threw was talking about Shannon putting on weight. “She’s saying I’m gaining weight?!” Shannon Beador asked. “I’m just so surprised.” Talking to the camera, Shannon said she felt “like the wind’s been knocked out of me because I have gained weight.” She also stated, “I’ve talked to Tamra about it, so how would Kelly know? Is Tamra really talking about me? To hear some of these comments kind of opens up some old wounds for me.”
Emily chimed in with her own feelings on Tamra. “It’s never gonna stop. It’s who she is,” she told the group. Dodd said she “knew damn good and well who she was, and I still didn’t go with my gut.” She later told the camera, “She just is a snake and she just sticks her venom on everybody. We got Vicki who’s a pig, and Tamra who’s a snake.” On Tuesday night’s episode, Fans also watched Emily fight over bread with her husband, Shane Simpson, and Gina cry over her ex Matt. Surprisingly, uncovering Tamra’s “two face” ways wasn’t the only juicy thing to come out of the OC tonight. Shannon’s ex-husband David Beador found himself in hot water after he bared everything in a naked snap shared by his new girlfriend. While Tamra doesn’t always have Shannon’s back, she certainly did when she responded to David’s nude pic scandal!
