We thought we would never see RHOC stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson act like friends again, so when the two had an emotional moment during last week’s episode, we were surprised.
Now, Tamra is sharing why she wanted to move forward with Vicki after Gunvalson claimed Judge’s husband Eddie was gay.
“Shannon [Beador] and I talked prior and I said, ‘Listen, I can’t carry this hostility and this anger,’ especially after I met with Vicki and that didn’t go well,” Tamra said. “After that, I sort of knew where my place was. We will never be friends, but, you know what? Maybe we can go out, go to Iceland, have fun, not get too deep about our friendship. That’s it. And that’s what we decided to do.”
As for Tamra’s reaction that she felt like Vicki chose Brooks over her?
“It was a really true moment,” Tamra told ET, adding that she was just trying to protect Vicki from Brooks. “I knew the guy was not good. So, I didn’t come after her like, ‘You’re a horrible person. Why are you with this guy?’ No. I was like, ‘Vicki, this guy’s not good for you.’ I kept warning her and warning her [and] instead of saying, ‘You know what? Thank you so much for being my friend.’ Instead, she just came after me.”
Tamra also revealed how she felt about Shannon calling Vicki a “liar” while the two were talking in Iceland.
“Shannon doesn’t have a mean bone in her body,” Tamra shared. “Shannon is the girl that I can call in the middle of the night and say, ‘This is going on in my life,’ and she will be there … She is the girl that will do anything for me.”
Tamra insisted that she’s closer to Shannon than she ever was with Vicki.
“Shannon’s gone through a lot of stuff, and a lot of people didn’t know,” she said. “I knew what was going on in her personal life. I got it … I’ve been in Shannon’s shoes before and I know Shannon doesn’t mean any harm. Yes, she’s expressive. But she has the purest heart, the sweetest person and we will be friends forever.”
Do you think Tamra and Vicki should make amends? Let’s discuss.
