War has officially broken out in Orange County. Real Housewives star Vicki Gunvalson is teaming up with newbie Kelly Dodd to enforce some major casting changes next season. Will producers boot Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County?
An inside source just told Us Magazine that Gunvalson has a plan to get Judge fired from Bravo’s hit reality show. The Housewives vet plans to smear Judge’s name by spreading rumors about her husband, Eddie.
Gunvalson has been at the center of the drama for the past two years. Last season, she was caught in the middle of Brooks Ayers’ cancer scam – which many of her co-stars believe she knew about all along – and this year she was caught telling Dodd that Eddie is actually gay.
With the current season a wrap, Gunvalson and Dodd are hoping that the drama will force Judge out. However, their plan might not play out how they expected.
“The more Housewives dislike someone, the more producers want,” the insider noted. “Tamra won’t rule out reconciling with Vicki. It breaks Tamra’s heart, but she doesn’t hate Vicki.”
That being said, Judge isn’t about to make friends just yet. In fact, the insider revealed that the reality star “doesn’t talk to Vicki” anymore, making a reconciliation less likely.
Of course, Gunvalson has another cast member in her cross-hairs. During the first part of the Season 11 reunion, Gunvalson attacked Shannon Beador, who accused her of spreading rumors about her marriage.
In response, an emotional Gunvalson fired back, “Get off my show. You don’t like me? Get off my show!”
While Gunvalson obviously has some real hatred for Beador, Wonder Wall reports that her feud with Judge goes a little deeper. On this season of RHOC, fans watched as Gunvalson took her top off while discussing the possibility of having a boob job. Judge apparently snapped a pic of the topless Gunvalson and forwarded it other people.
The nude photo was eventually forwarded to a 15-year-old girl, who promptly displayed it on social media. The FBI has since gotten involved in the matter after a woman filed a complaint.
In her official complaint, Rosalie Coleman told authorities that Judge “electronically sent a nude photograph of an acquaintance of hers (taken at a small gathering) to a FIFTEEN YEAR OLD girl & asked her to distribute it online in an effort to humiliate & harass one Vicki Gunvalson.”
The FBI has not commented on the matter. For her part, Judge is adamant that she did not send the photo to anyone outside of the show and played no part in sending the image to the minor in question.
If the FBI finds that Judge did play a part in the topless photo scandal, then her days on RHOC might be numbered. Whatever ends up happening, Reality Tea reports that Judge is trying to put all the drama this season behind her.
In fact, Tamra Judge recently returned to Glamis to reflect and move on from the ATV accident she suffered at the site with Gunvalson, Dodd, and Heather Dubrow. Unfortunately, the reality star isn’t quite ready to move on just yet.
“About last night,” Judge told fans on social media. “I had a complete panic attack in the back seat when heading up to Olds and made @eddiejudge turnaround and take me back to camp. Not the daredevil I used to be after rolling #traumatized #afraidofrollingdownthehill.”
Judge’s comments come as a surprise, especial after she was the one who criticized Gunvalson for overly exaggerating her injuries. Of course, Judge eventually gathered enough courage to strap on her helmet and face her fears.
“Today I knew I had to face my fear of the dunes (crashing),” she shared. “I’m not ready to drive like this but being a passenger was the first step. Ton of fun driving up to the flag ceremony …. had to close my eyes a few times and talk to God #glamisdunes #veterans #flagceramony #sandylips.”
At least fans can take one positive thing from the terrible accident this season. Whether or not that positive vibe continues in the final reunion segment is less than likely.
Part two of the reunion featured Dodd opening up about her drama this season, which included an intense argument with Dubrow at the sushi party. Beador also shared a bit about her marriage while Gunvalson’s daughter, Briana, made a surprise visit to dish a few secrets about her mother.
Considering Gunvalson and Dodd’s plan to get rid of Judge, the final reunion episode is going to be a drama-filled affair. Hopefully, the ladies can work through some of their differences before it’s all said and done.
Fans can watch all the drama unfold when part three of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion airs Monday night on Bravo.
