What will Tamra say?!
The Real Housewives of Orange County fans shouldn’t expect Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge to make up any time soon! While the two Bravo stars have been bickering as frenemies throughout the show, Vicki’s latest comments about her nemesis’ husband, Eddie Judge, may have crossed the line. As tempers flair and heated words are exchanged, the housewife spills some crazy details about Eddie’s past — including how the wealthy businessman was in an “unorthodox” gay relationship — that isn’t sitting well with the LGBTQ community.
Vicki Gunvalsonand Tamra Judge have had a tumultuous friendship throughout the eight years they’ve been on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but now they’re in an all-out explosive war after Vicki spread vicious rumors about Tamra’s husband, Eddie Judge. As fans might recall, the co-stars fell out and became sworn enemies at the end of Season 11 when Vicki claimed Eddie had been in a gay relationship.
The comments didn’t sit well with the fitness expert, and Tamra since lashed out at her former friend for smearing her marriage. “She’s done too much damage to me,” Tamra told People earlier this year. “For Vicki to insult my marriage like that it’s a fraud, that’s what hurt me.”
Despite Tamra’s protests, Vicki continued to speak openly to mutual friends about Eddie’s sexuality.
The Deleted Excerpt
In a new blog post, the Bravo star made even more shocking comments about Eddie’s alleged past relationship with another man. While it wasn’t the first time Vicki fueled the gay rumors, fans were upset over the language she used and how she spoke about Tamra’s husband.
“I was not the first one to repeat or reveal the rumor about Eddie’s past of being gay. Let me make this very clear to all of you: I don’t care one way or the other about his past relationships,” she penned in an bullet point. “Tamra is the one that should be discussing this with her husband, not lashing out at me for discussing it with my friend. My question is why does she keep directing her anger towards me? Just so you know, before I had that private conversation with Kelly [Dodd] about Eddie, it was already widely reported in the public domain his ‘unorthodox’ relationship with a gay man that adopted him as an adult. Kelly would have eventually found out about it herself sooner or later without me.”
The comments deeply hurt the LGBTQ community for seemingly sounding slightly homophobic. As Real Mr. Housewife, who first reported on the deleted except, pointed out, “Can a gay man not adopt a child without something ‘unorthodox’ occurring?”
Since its publication, Bravo removed Vicki’s comment about an “unorthodox” relationship. “Tamra should address these rumors with her husband head on and move on from it,” the excerpt now reads. “If Tamra wants to get upset with me for discussing it privately with Kelly (off camera) then that’s on her. I can’t control what has been said about him, nor do I care!”
“Hearing Tamra’s filthy mouth is so classless, and I’m tired of her continuing to talk crap about me,” she continued. “For her to call me a bitch, a victim, scum and dirt under her feet is so classless. Who talks that way about someone? And what exactly did I do to deserve this? Did I maliciously go out to hurt her? No, last year I simply had a conversation with Kelly about why is it ok for her to talk crap about other people, but she’s off limits. It’s not right.”
It’s Not Over!
When recently asked about her fractured friendship with Vicki, Tamra insisted she won’t be the one to apologize and blasted the RHOC mom for spreading lies.
“If I never speak to the woman again it would be the best day. It would be too soon,” she told The Daily Dish. “I think she has done so much to me and I think she has zero boundaries. She does not care about my family, my children, my husband, my marriage, my business. She attacks my business. When somebody has zero boundaries — and I’ve always said if you’re gonna lie about your own life then you’re gonna lie about other people’s lives. So she’s a liar.”
