Tamra Judge is known for getting into some scrapes on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but the fiery blonde got into a pickle of a different kind on a recent episode.
The reality television star, who is embroiled in a custody battle with ex-husband Simon, was injured when fellow cast member and frequent rival, Heather Dubrow, caused a mechanical bull Tamra was riding to go faster.
The drama went down at a groundbreaking on a new home for Dubrow and her husband. Dubrow got upset at Shannon Beador showing up late to the event, but Tamra Judge failed to back her up and even started to talk smack about Dubrow.
It escalated from there, with Heather complaining to her husband that she was tired of being judged.
Later in the episode, the women rode a mechanical bull that was part of the festivities, but when it came time for Tamra Judge to get on, Dubrow told the person in control to “turn that up!”
Tamra was thrown to the ground and in obvious pain.
“I think I might have broke my arm,” she said. “I feel like I’m going to faint.”
An X-ray revealed that Tamra was unhurt, but Heather Dubrow still shared a laugh about the incident at her frenemy’s expense.
Of course, being reality television it is difficult to tell the line between real life and scripted drama. While the mechanical bull incident may have seemed legitimate, reality show producers have been known to stir up such drama for ratings.
Viewers who follow The Real Housewives of Orange County have seen Tamra Judge get into plenty of arguments, but also move forward in her relationship with now-husband Eddie Judge.
Tamra gave Facebook some details about her wedding to Eddie:
“Did I tell you … I’m getting married! Wedding plans had to be put on hold due to the fitness studio taking up SO much of our time. Now that the studio is done we are planning our wedding. I can’t wait to share it with you. XOXO.”
There are now reports that Tamra Judge and Eddie may be pregnant, but the reality star hasn’t confirmed anything. If true, it might explain why she was so concerned about being thrown from the bull.
