Tamra Judge is responding to Shannon Beador’s comments about the end of their friendship on last night’s episode of RHOC, calling her out for lying.
On last night’s episode, Shannon said that she believes it was Tamra that wanted to end their relationship, pointing out that she had always been there for her, even amid Tamra’s exit from the show.
In a series of posts on her Instagram Story, Tamra clapped back against Shannon’s comments that it was her that ended the friendship and agreed with fans that pointed out that it was actually Shannon that had started to ignore Tamra when filming on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 15 picked up.
“I’m blown away how this woman can lie through her jewelled teeth! Have another drink Shannon it’s what you do best!” she captioned a photo of tweets she had seen about Wednesday’s RHOC that seemed to suggest it was Shannon that was the more difficult in the friendship.
Tamra also revealed that it was actually Shannon that was causing stress in the friendship, pointing to the fact that maintaining the friendship required a lot of personal time.
“My kids and husband would beg me not to answer the phone 25 times a day because she would suck my energy with all her negativity. I was just trying to be a good friend!” she posted on image of the two at one of their many RHOC reunions together.
She continued, “She wouldn’t let me reconcile with Vicki and told me last year not to be friends with Kelly and got mad when I was.”
In another revealing post, Tamra revealed that Shannon has been plotting against new RHOC cast member Elizabeth Lyn Vargas, hoping to get all of the Housewives against her.
On last night’s episode, that’s pretty much what happened, with Braunwyn Windham-Burke also helping to lead the charge against Elizabeth.
“I’m not on the show but still getting blamed for shit,” she posted alongside a laughing face emoji. “Let me get my side out!”
“Shannon is a liar & exhausting! Gina & Travis stopped by CUT Fitness to pick up some weights back in March. She told me that Shannon was orchestrating a get together (during first week of Covid) to take down Elizabeth & that she wanted everyone there to get in on the action,” she explained. “AKA — do her dirty work (Shannon loves to play producer).”
“Gina said she didn’t want to get involved,” continued Tamra. “We were in the beginning of a pandemic and it didn’t feel right! I had nothing to do with Gina not going!”
As viewers saw on last night’s RHOC, Gina really was the only one to side with Elizabeth, choosing to forgive the newbie for being hesitant to open up with the other women ahead of their cast trip. Braunwyn and Shannon, on the other hand, clearly have other ideas and plan to confront their new cast member on upcoming episodes.
It’s interesting to hear Tamra’s perspective on the drama and her insight only continues to prove exactly why she needs to be brought back.
After all, if part of Shannon’s storyline is going to be the end of her friendship with Tamra, both sides should be able to have their say fairly. And while the drama with Elizabeth may be a nice distraction for Shannon, the true interest with RHOC fans is in what happened between her, Tamra, and Vicki.
