‘RHOC’ Tamra Judge Slams Vicki Gunvalson Over ATV Crash, Claims She ‘Exaggerated’ Her Injuries To Get Her Friends Back

Tamra Judge isn’t taking Vicki Gunvalson’s side just yet.

Despite supporting Gunvalson after she sustained neck injuries during an ATV accident, the Real Housewives of Orange County star now claims Gunvalson exaggerated her injuries.

Radar Online reports that Judge initially criticized Meghan King Edmonds and Shannon Beador after they accused Gunvalson of dramatizing her injuries to gain friends.

Now, Judge is taking a different stance and slammed Gunvalson for over-exaggerating.

“Yeah, yeah, I think she was exaggerating,” Judge stated. “Only because I had a nurse on site [who said] as soon as she saw her hit the ground she was like, ‘Oh my neck hurts’ when prior to that she’d been all like ‘What just happened?,'”

Beador took issue with how Gunvalson snapped photos while she was being evacuated from the scene in a helicopter.

“If I’m really injured and I’m in a helicopter, you’re not going to find me taking selfies of myself,” she stated.

Edmonds couldn’t agree more, saying, “It’s hard for me with my past with Vicki to truly believe that Vicki is hurt when she is. Because all she’s done is lie, lie, lie.”

While Edmonds and Beador questioned Gunvalson’s injuries, Judge yelled at them for not visiting her when she recovered at home.

“She’s in a neck brace with a paper gown on,” Judge told them. “Why couldn’t you have at least called her and see if she needed like something to wear? You didn’t care. She’s in the friggin’ hospital – airlifted. And no one even wondered. Go to hell!”

Gunvalson alienated a lot her friends last season when her then boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, was caught lying about having cancer. This included Judge, who had a hard time forgiving Gunvalson for her part in the scandal.

Based on Tamra Judge’s latest turnaround, it looks like some of those old misgivings are starting to creep up.

Speaking of the cancer lies, Reality Tea is reporting that Judge believes Beador’s beef with Gunvalson stems from last season’s controversy.

“Shannon is the type of person that holds her friends really close until you cross her in a way like lying about cancer, there’s no going back,” she said on Watch What Happens Live.

Whatever the source of their feud, Beador and Edmonds made a huge decision not to visit Gunvalson in the hospital and it might come back to burn them.


According to People, Edmonds and Beador refused to see Gunvalson after the wreck while Judge, Heather Dubrow, and Kelly Dodd were with Gunvalson when the accident occurred.

“Of course I don’t want Vicki to be hurt,” Edmonds told Dubrow. “But I don’t want to go visit Vicki in the hospital because I’m not her friend.”

Beador shared similar sentiments, adding: “I’m not friends with Vicki. I was an incredible friend to Vicki and all she did was betray me. Right now, I’m not rushing over to sit by a woman that fakes cancer.”

Of course, Dodd and Dubrow were less than understanding about their reasons for staying away.


“I think it’s complete bull—-,” Dodd shared. “If somebody is in dire need of help, I’m going to be there whether I’m their friend or not. And I would do it out of human decency.”

Fans later watched as Beador and Edmonds questioned the severity of the wreck by citing how Dubrow and Dodd were laughing and drinking shortly after.

For now, it isn’t clear why Judge had the change of heart, though more information will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Fans can watch the drama unfold when new episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County air Monday nights on Bravo.
