Tamra Judge planned a party for her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Meghan King Edmonds before Edmonds went to her in vitro fertilization doctor. She wanted Meghan to have her last few drinks and some sushi with her friends before trying again to conceive a child.
And while Tamra had great intentions with the party, she was shocked that Kelly Dodd came with a mission and a grudge. Kelly was clearly upset with Shannon Beador, who she felt had set her up at a recent party. Dodd was convinced that Shannon had wronged her, and she didn’t hold back during the party, even though Tamra had worked hard on setting everything up to celebrate Meghan.
According to a new Bravo report, Tamra Judge is now revealing her thoughts about the dramatic sushi party. Judge had no idea that Kelly Dodd would come to the party and completely flip out on Shannon, who was both a friend to Tamra and to Meghan King Edmonds. No one at the party supported Dodd in her views, and Judge did try to calm her down during her yelling match.

“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,” Tamra Judge reveals on her blog for The Real Housewives of Orange County, recapping her opinions from last week’s episode.
Judge tried to keep the party under control, but Heather Dubrow was so upset with everything that happened at the party that she tried to throw Kelly out. But since it wasn’t her party, she decided to leave the party in tears. And Tamra Judge fully understands why Heather didn’t want to hang around these women as they were yelling and being very immature.
“Heather had every right to walk out and get upset,” Tamra Judge reveals in her blog, sharing that she fully understands why Heather walked out of the party and was upset on the way home when she called her husband in tears.

Tamra also revealed that she was heartbroken to see Kelly break down to Meghan King Edmonds the day after. It sounds like she completely regretted her behavior, but she wanted all of the ladies to know that she felt set up by Shannon. But Judge feels that the new housewife isn’t completely innocent in everything that’s going on.
“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,” Tamra Judge explains on her blog for Bravo.
It sounds like Judge’s journey to understand the new housewife is just getting started. In fact, she teases that more time with Kelly will come, and Tamra might speak her mind about this new housewife. Since she’s close friends with Meghan and Shannon, Tamra could speak out in their defense.
