‘RHOC’: Is Tamra Judge Still Friends With Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson?
Tamra Judge left The Real Housewives of Orange County after 12 years on the show. The gym owner was offered to return for season 15 but only for three episodes, which she turned down. As Judge makes plans for what’s to come after her life as a housewife. Following her exit from the reality series, fans have been wondering where her friendships stand with Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson.
Is Tamra Judge still friends with Vicki Gunvalson?
Judge took to Instagram Stories and allowed fans to ask her anything. One of the queries from her followers was about her relationship with Gunvalson. The latter also announced her exit after being with the show since the very first season.
“We are great,” Judge answered. “Talk every day and can’t wait to get together. In talks to do our own show.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Judge revealed that she shot a presentation with Gunvalson for a show.
“I told [Vicki], I said, ‘Listen, you and I paved the way for the Housewives franchise and I think that we are really gonna pave the way for the next step after Housewives is over,'” Judge told the outlet.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, pitching for the show stopped as all of the productions came to a halt.
“We’ve been approached to do a show together, I can’t really say too much,” she told ET. “We were about ready to meet with networks and everything got shut down because of the virus. So, we are on hold right now.”
Is Tamra Judge still friends with Shannon Beador?
Fans of the former housewife also wanted to know how her friendship with Shannon Beador was. The latter was asked back to return to RHOC and recently posted a photo with Kelly Dodd.
“Nope, stopped trying,” Judge replied when a fan asked if she had talked to Beador. “Was sick of being sent to [voicemail].”
Another fan asked if Judge believed that Beador was only a friend for show purposes.
“Kinda looking that way,” Judge answered.
She then defined what a real friendship is by writing, “Someone that is always there for you. Not just when it’s convenient for them.”
In an interview with ET, Judge voiced her discontent with Beador as her former co-star drifted from her after she started filming RHOC.
“As soon as we’re not on the show anymore, she just doesn’t have any time for us anymore and it really just kind of hurts my feelings,” Judge told ET. “I felt like on the show, off the show, whatever, she was my friend, you know? I helped her through this divorce, I spent hours in the middle of the night answering phone calls.”
Does Tamra Judge miss ‘RHOC?’
“I’m going to miss being on the show,” Judge told her fans. “But all good things come to an end. I’m very excited about my future and what’s to come.”
Judge has one concern after her exit from RHOC, she doesn’t want them to diss her in the new season. She cited the way the New York City franchise handled Bethenny Frankel’s departure as to what she didn’t want for her.
“I hope they don’t do it like they did Bethenny,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s weird. We’ve been on this show 12, 14 years, and just not to have us? They can either just act like we don’t exist, or we are gonna get a million flashbacks of us, you know, looking like jerks and, like, Kelly [Dodd] and people going ‘Well, you know, nobody wanted to be around her.’”
For now Judge is going to concentrate on her businesses which include Cut Fitness, which is undergoing a restructuring, and her CBD products brand.
