Tamra Judge isn’t going to donate anything to Vicki Gunvalson’s cancer charity.
On the latest installment of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Gunvalson announced plans to create a charitable organization for victims of cancer. However, not all of her RHOC co-stars took the bait.
Radar Online reports that Judge will not support Gunvalson’s charity, Kill All Cancer, because she thinks her co-star is only in it for the money.
“Am I the only one that doesn’t know what to think about Vicki starting an insurance program for cancer patients?” Judge explained in her latest Bravo blog.
“The way it was explained was more about making money and convincing people she had nothing to do with Brook’s cancer scam. Michael sure called her out on some of her lies. Yikes.”
Gunvalson’s organization has yet to follow through with their 501 C3, so they are not officially recognized as a charity. Still, Gunvalson assured everyone that the organization “is a charity, not a business.”
Even if Gunvalson is sincere about her efforts to help cancer victims, it’s probably not the smartest move on her part, especially after everything that went down last season.
According to People, Gunvalson found herself in the middle of Brooks Ayers’ cancer scam last season and defended her boyfriend against Tamra Judge and the rest of the RHOC, until the season finale.
Ayer went to great lengths to cover up his lies and even fabricated medical documents to make it look like he was receiving cancer treatment.
He eventually came clean about faking the documents, but Gunvalson still hasn’t admitted that she knew he was lying all along.
Despite Gunvalson’s scandalous history with cancer, she clearly isn’t afraid of diving right back into the issue.
“Cancer obviously was very relevant in my life last year,” she explained. “People tried to label me as in on a whole fake cancer scheme. What are they going to do? Criticize me for opening a charity to try and help find a cure?”
Apparently, Gunvalson believes that working with a cancer charity will clear her name on the fake cancer issue.
“Working with a cancer charity will prove the naysayers out there who said I was in on something or that I lied that I’ve got nothing to hide. Period,” she added.
Gunvalson’s charity is aimed at adding an insurance component to health care and is aimed that those who have cancer and those that don’t.
“This ‘Kill All Cancer’ policy will be something people will buy, and then if they ever got sick, this will help people get back on their feet again,” she explained. “This is up my wheelhouse – I’m all about insurance, I’m all about charities, so I’m all in.”
Considering Gunvalson’s history with Ayers, it’s understandable that some of her RHOC co-stars are hesitant to support her.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Judge’s latest move shows how her friendship with Gunvalson might be over for good.
Judge gave her old friend a second chance this season, but their tentative friendship melted down during the trip to Ireland.
A preview clip for the upcoming trip shows Judge in a shouting match with Gunvalson, and it sounds like their beef centered on Ayers’ lies.
“It was pretty loud,” Judge later said about the fight. “That was my good bye FU to VG.”
Although the details of the fight are slim, Judge took issue with Gunvalson not coming clean about her part in the cancer scam.
Clearly, the two ladies still have a lot of issues to work out, and Gunvalson’s new charity did little to bridge the gap in their friendship.
