Vicki Gunvalson continues to make enemies with her fellow cast members as the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion continues. In the latest development, Tamra Judge found out that Gunvalson made some harsh comments about her parenting choices and custody of her children.
According to Reality Tea, the comments were made during Judge’s erotic-themed party earlier in the season. While Judge was entertaining her guests with a sex tape, which featured her in a catsuit complete with a strap-on, Gunvalson remarked to Heather Dubrow, “She pretty much lost custody of one, she doesn’t want to lose two more.”
The remarks, though made jokingly, are particularly hurtful because Judge was in a heated custody battle with her ex-husband, Simon at the time. Additionally, Judge’s oldest daughter, Sidney, has decided to live with her father over Judge. This makes the issue a sensitive one for Judge, who was unaware of the comments until now.
Following the show, Judge posted a message on Twitter and admitted that her behavior at the sex party was ill advised. “I know dumb move on my part. But @ShannonBeador dared me. Very embarrassed and ashamed,” she wrote.
At the same time, Vicki Gunvalson backtracked a bit with a message of her own on Twitter, saying, “I didn’t mean to say ‘lost custody’… I knew of your issues with your daughter and didn’t think it helped.”
Despite the apology, it is not clear if Gunvalson and Judge will be able to move on or remain friends. Given how Judge reacted to the comments, it may take a while for her to forgive Gunvalson.
“Not only am I upset with how Vicki has hurt Hayley, but my heart also aches for Tamra,” Edmonds stated. “I can’t imagine the pain she must have felt when she found out that her supposed good friend, Vicki, made such horrid comments regarding her custody and fitness as mother.”
Edmonds also added that she is tired of all of the lies and denials Gunvalson continues to make on the show. In fact, Edmonds went so far as to ask that Gunvalson make an apology because of her harsh behavior towards Edmonds’ step daughter, Haley.
“I’m just going to jump right in and say that I am STILL amazed with how much Vicki exaggerates her stories – so much that they become full blown lies! It’s so awkward to watch her get put on the spot and try to weasel her way out of her lies,” Edmonds stated. “When Vicki made the comment about our marriage, Andy asked both Jimmy and me if we wanted an apology out of her. We both said no, because her comments didn’t affect or hurt either of us. The only one who was hurt by her was Hayley.”
Clearly, Gunvalson continues to get herself into more and more trouble with her co-stars. With all of the controversy that has surrounded Gunvalson throughout this season, it will be interesting to see what else is revealed during the last reunion episode.
