Tamra Judge Believes Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd Bring Out the Worst in One Another

Tamra

RHOC star Tamra Judge is sharing her thoughts about David’s surprise party for Shannon and also reacting to Kelly Dodd’s behavior during Meghan’s dinner. Judge says in her blog that she really believes that Kelly and Vicki bring out the worst in each other.

“Sorry, no blog last week. My kids went back to school and I was busy getting them all set up. Spencer is a junior in high school and driving and Sophia just started middle school. I can’t believe it’s been eight years since they have been seen on the show. Sophia would LOVE to be filmed. Often times she is with me when I am filming just off to the side, like in tonight’s episode at the Story Makery with Heather’s daughter Kat. They had a great time at the Story Makery check my Instagram for pictures.

Last week:

I thought it would be a great idea to have a party for Meghan before she got pregnant and couldn’t drink alcohol or eat sushi for the next year. Me and my great ideas! When she called me from Washington she told me that she had a moment with Vicki. When I told her I wanted to have a dinner for her she said, “Great, who are you inviting?” I told her everyone and she told me, “It will be nice for all of us to put our differences aside for the baby.” So when she called me back mad and said she didn’t want Vicki there I was bit shocked. Actually I thought I was going crazy, I knew I had told her I was inviting Vicki what had changed? Let’s just blame it on the damn hormones.

Let me get straight to the point! First off I NEVER said that Nina called Kelly a prostitute, those are Kelly’s words. How it got brought up at dinner is not clear to me, we were having such a great time.

What Kelly did was way out of line and downright crazy. Not only did she call Shannon a c*** and me a dumb f***, she called other people names as well. She told Meghan she didn’t know anything because she doesn’t have kids. I have learned that when Kelly is mad she will go off on everyone around her. When she went off on me I knew better than to fight with her, it was better for me to roll my eyes and sit back. I knew nothing good would come out of it. In the past I probably would have jumped over the table.

Heather had every right to walk out and get upset.

There is a big part of me that feels bad for Kelly. I am really trying to give her a break and not be judgmental. When people act like that it usually is because they are in some kind of pain. At that point in our friendship I was trying to figure out what was going on with her and being compassionate. More to come with my “let’s figure Kelly out” journey.

This week’s episode I met with Heather at the storybook place to recap on the sushi dinner. I knew she left very upset and I wanted to see how she was doing. I was planning a birthday party for Eddie at Glamis Dunes and we both had concerns about Kelly attending. All our children would be going and we didn’t want one of Kelly’s outbursts to happen in front of the kids. I knew I had to have a talk with Kelly before the trip. I had not formally invited anyone yet, but had mentioned it in conversation.

I thought Meghan was very direct with Kelly when she came over, that’s a true a friend that will tell you like it is. It’s not always that easy to tell someone, “You acted like an ***hole and I was embarrassed to be your friend”. Kelly took it pretty well and apologized, but then blamed it on being provoked by the women at the sushi restaurant. I did not see anyone provoke Kelly?

Watching Vicki and Kelly at the spa reminded me of two girls in middle school. Vicki knew Shannon would not attend her birthday party in Palm Desert. It was more like a prank call a twelve year old would make then hang up and start laughing. She knew Shannon was having a party and she was not invited so she was going one up her. Childish!

Dinner with Kelly and Vicki was more like a Shannon bashing session. I really do believe that these two bring out the worst in each other. I nearly fell off my chair when I heard Kelly say that Vicki was the Buddha of Orange County and she wants her to teach her social grace and etiquette. I’m going to stop myself right here because nothing good is about to come out of my mouth. But I just can’t, after hearing Vicki tell the waitress that Kelly likes hot things because she’s Mexican…really? I don’t think they teach that in etiquette school.

I had a feeling that David had something up his sleeve. I had heard that the girls were coming to the surprise party and I thought to myself, hmmm…why would the girls be coming? Then hearing the venue was the same place they got married, I just knew it.

Shannon has gone through so much in the past two years and they have been working so hard at getting the relationship back on track. What David did was the most thoughtful, loving thing he could have ever done for Shannon and the girls.

Nice to see that bikini wax didn’t go to waste.

The big SURPRISE behind the curtain…”Are you kidding me?” Shannon’s response to all her friends cracked me up.

The wedding was beautiful and brought tears to everyone eyes.

The best line of the night was “I should have worn a better dress.” Shannon you looked beautiful.”

    1. the thing that astonishes me was, the speed of which Tamra and cronies suddenly forgave both Vicky and Kelly. Meghan and Shannon were not there. I mean these girls deserved medals for holding Brookes and V to account for FAKE CANCER. Vicky was complicit in this scurrilous behaviour.

    2. Hey Tamra, and what effect do think hanging out with BOTH Kelly and Vicky might have on you? Cos they dont bring out the best in you. Now I could have told you that at the beginning of the season. All the signs were there in both of them. Vicky has a long way to go in terms of finding resolution. And it was clear that v and K were going to lean on each other.

  1. I really believe Tamra is trying to live up to Christian values. I believe in the past she would have been over the table and at Kelly’s throat. Truth be told I almost wish she had. I like this “new” Tamra.

    1. TAMRA: you rolled your eyes when Meghan did not want to go glamping. Uncool right there. Then, as a result of your foolhardiness, you almost killed all of the passengers in the dune buggy. Meghan might have lost her baby HAD SHE GONE on your redic holiday. Then when the ‘accident’ happened, you tried to shame Tamra and Shannon. They have not forgiven Vicky yet. Just what were you trying to achieve with your inconsistent stance on V? Same goes for Kelly and Heather. What the hell was the deal with Heather scolding Meghan all of sudden. Major whiplash here. Speaking of which, you have not acknowledged Meghan’s blessing yet….is this because of your non-custodial arrangements? I think you need to get some serious guidance counselling. Tamra, it’s time to grow up. YOU being on this show has had a heavy penalty for you (with your dysfunctional personality) and your family. Pleeease stop lecturing others on BORDERLINE or NARCISSISTIC personality disorders, when you displayed both over strangely the last 3-4 episodes.

  2. I agree Tamara has grown ,& I am liking the new Tamara. It is not her place to figure Kelly out; it is her place to be a friend.
    I too chuckled at the Buddha Vicki comment. Vicki is to be admired as a great , successful, independent, business lady,& a great mom. Her kids turned out great.
    I don’t agree that Vicki,& Kelly bring out the worst in each other. They both have issues with Shannon. As far as the Vicki’ s phone invite to Shannon, it was the adult thing to do.
    Gesture of moving on,& not being petty,& childish, by excluding anyone.

    1. Southern P, I’m all for your thoughts. Beautifully put. I was all ready to be sick at the prejudiced post of Tamara, till I read your post. Thanks for that–truly. But, I must say that Tamara is really trying to be a good Christian, but she is still a baby in the faith. Soon she’ll grow & grow & see the 3 sides of everything. After all, the group she hangs with are truly a judgemental set. In my opinion they would even remove God’s peace.

  3. I agree with you both…I was waiting for Tamra to go at Kelly cause she could of done it but she did handle it right…

      1. Geminigirl. Can’t argue that. Tortured poor Gretchen from the giddy up.
        Tale as old ad time, prettier, classier , educated,& sweeter comes into the mix. It’ s automatic, Hater her!

  4. Vicki and Kelly deserve one another. I think Kelly is the most repulsive one woman I have ever had the non-pleasure of seeing on the tube. She may be a “multi-millionaire and college educated”, but she is still class-less, rude, crude and lewd!!!!! PS: Tamra definitely DOES stir the pot a lot. My, my……..is that what a good Christian woman does??? I don’t think so.

    1. Hi Karen, I love your comment and I agree. Tamra loves throwing around the “I’m a Christian” motto but I’ll see if she has really changed. Maybe getting away from Simon had a calming effect on her. However, she needs to stop judging the other women as how they treat that lying POS Vicki.

  5. Oh Tamra, you swing in the wind depending on who you are with. If you aren’t doing that, then you are in there stirring up the bullsh*t. When are you going to learn to keep your mouth shut? When the sh*t hits the fan, you had better be far, far away from that fan sweetie! Your skirts might get a little dirty.

    1. I remember Tamra acting a LOT more aggressive and vile towards Alexis, during the party at her gym. Much MORE so, than a drunk-y Kelly throwing around some vulgar word a couple of times.

  6. Loved everything she said her, but everyone hurts.. EVERYONE. Even Tamra herself right now is hurting over her daughter, but not everyone blows up at people like that. This is more of a case of anger management. She needs some coaching on how to get her emotions in check.

  7. I like the growth I’m seeing in Tamra. As a Christian myself, part of me wants to pray for the girl that she can continue to be fair, balanced, and approach situations with patience and loving wisdom. She’s doing a darned good job so far and I hope she can keep it up. It’s gotta be a pretty hard balancing act to have a workplace environment that expects you to act out for ratings and viewer chatter when that’s the polar opposite of what you’ve come to stand for in your growing spiritual walk.

  8. My, my Tamra, aren’t you sanctimonious? Maybe you need to review some of the past episodes & seasons to refresh your memory about who you were before you embraced your latest made-for-TV persona. I seem to recall you being mean, crass, disrespectful, cruel, dishonest & vulgar towards one or more of your co-stars either simultaneously or consecutively throughout your tenure on the show. I even think you had a “Mexican” moment yourself with regard to Eddie. Your current storyline feels as inauthentic as all your others.

  9. I really liked this blog of Tamra’s! I can’t believe I wrote this words…….I’m Going to keep my fingers crossed that this is truly a new and long lasting leaf for her.

  10. Vicki has exploded on Gretchen, Lauri, Meghan, and who knows who I’m not thinking of… besides the people who sent a family van to pick up six people and 12 bags. Lol. I thought it was hilarious when Vicki called herself Kelly’s mentor. Yes, Vicki is a super successful business woman and I admire her for that. Is Vick qualified to be mentoring Kelly on how to get along with the other women? No way! Kelly is on the same crazy train though, eyes wide open with Vicki conducting “WHOOHOOO!”

    1. Oh, and I was just imagining what Bethenny would do! It’s more ludicrous than LuAnne calling herself Sonja’s mentor!

  11. Kelly Dodd is a psycho ….it’s best to keep her and Granny Gunvelson together away from the others…It was a pleasure to watch Shannons Birthday party with none of their BS…

  12. TAMRA: you rolled your eyes when Meghan did not want to go glamping. Uncool right there. Then, as a result of your foolhardiness, you almost killed all of the passengers in the dune buggy. Meghan might have lost her baby HAD SHE GONE on your redic holiday. Then when the ‘accident’ happened, you tried to shame Tamra and Shannon. They have not forgiven Vicky yet.
