Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge is done with Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson’s lies. In a recent interview, the RHOC star shared her thoughts on Kelly’s alleged affair, her relationship with Viki, and what’s to come in Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12.
Tamra Judge went on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast and weighed on all the drama surrounding her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars, particularly Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson. According to Tamra, via Reality Tea, the whole RHOC cast knew about Kelly and her secret boyfriend Frank the entire time. Given, however, Kelly’s infidelity was only a rumor; none of them brought it up while filming. Which is why when Kelly brought up all these rumors about her and Shannon,which she supposedly heard from Vicki, Tamra clearly got hurt.
“That’s why it’s so frustrating that she brought up all these rumors! Because we’ve heard allllll these things: her being arrested, the Frank, the running some girl off the road, beating up her neighbor… like there were so many rumors out there and because it’s a rumor, it’s like that’s just exactly what it is. If you have no proof, than don’t say anything.”
Tamra recounted that she only asked Kelly about the alleged affair when a random woman told her at the airport that her Real Housewives of Orange County co-star had a boyfriend in Newport. Kelly, however, insisted that she and Frank are just “really good friends,” saying that them having an affair would be like if Tamra was sleeping with her hairdresser, who Tamra notes is gay. The only issue here is Frank is not clearly gay.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star further hinted that there could be truth to these rumors after all. Tamra said that other people had “pretty strong opinions” that Kelly cheated on her husband with Frank.
“I should not be the one, or Shannon should not be the one, she’s blaming. She should blame herself. You can’t cheat, and then say, ‘you’re behind this.'”
Last week, Kelly Dodd stopped by Watch What Happens Live and told everyone that she never had an affair with Frank. The RHOC star clarified that Frank is like a brother to him, adding that Andy Cohen can even call him up and ask about the rumors if he wanted to.
A WWHL viewer also asked Kelly about her relationship with Vicki. Real Housewives of Orange County fans might recall that Kelly got upset at Vicki when she failed to defend her after Tamra, Shannon, and Heather “ganged up” on her during the crazy bus ride. Kelly revealed that she and Vicki are in good terms right now, adding that Vicki apologized after the incident.
“She’s always been a good friend to me. I think that she was talked to by these women and they were trying to take her side away from me. But she said sorry to me, she’s been a very good friend to me,” Kelly said.
Tamra Judge, however, is still not ready to forgive Vicki Gunvalson. According to Reality Tea, Tamra actually blamed Vicki more than Kelly for all the craziness that happened in the bus. The Real Housewives of Orange County star pointed out that this is not the first time that Vicki spread all these lies about her co-stars.
“This is not the first time I’ve heard her spread rumors about my family and my husband. This is like for years she’s been doing this and I never bring it up. Yes, we’ve had our moments, but I’ve never done anything to her,” Tamra said.
Meanwhile, when asked about what fans can expect when Real Housewives of Orange County returns for Season 12, Tamra revealed that there will be new housewives joining the show. She also hinted that Meghan King Edmonds may not be returning this season. As for her, Shannon, and Heather, Tamra said that she’s not worried about their contracts being in jeopardy. She believed that having a close and real relationship with the girls only made the Real Housewives of Orange County better because it creates a “more natural drama.”
Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 11 airs Monday, Nov. 7 on Bravo. Watch the sneak peek below:
