The biggest question on The Real Housewives of Orange County tonight wasn’t about Kelly’s mom and the stairs, but Tamra’s willingness to lie about it.
The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has done nothing but fight about rumors this season. In the last episode, we observed Tamra Judge and Shannon Storms Beador arguing about things that Kelly Dodd did, from the mouth of Vicki Gunvalson. Still following?
Apparently, someone unrelated filmed the altercation and put it on Instagram. Now, Tamra is saying everything said was taken out of context. Did Tamra forget she was also being filmed for…the reality show she’s on?
The best part was that Kelly tagged Jim Bellino in the drama, trying to rile Tamra up even more. Jim was suing both Tamra and Shannon after they went on a podcast and talked about him, but the lawsuit against Shannon was dropped. Tamra is still involved in the lawsuit. Hehe.
It really is unfortunate Shannon is so gullible. She believes that Tamra isn’t talking poorly about her, just like she believed her husband wasn’t having an affair. News flash: Tamra is talking poorly about you, AND David was having an affair. “I believe Tamra because we have reached a point in our long friendship where we tell each other the truth.” Oh Shannon, honey, no. Her inability to see the truth must be some kind of coping mechanism because at this point nothing else makes sense.
I do feel bad for Shannon because she thinks that someone as awful as Tamra is faithfully her friend when she’s no such thing. Tamra uses Shannon to get what she wants and to get by when she needs to but dumps her as soon as she’s no longer useful.
Tamra has a tendency to get blamed for spreading “rumors” she heard elsewhere, but at this point the only person spreading the rumors is Tamra. I’m pretty sure she’s creating the rumors prior to spreading them around (insert production flashback here). Maybe not, but she’s definitely the one bringing all these things to light. Sure, Tamra makes for alright television, but where do we draw the line?
The Real Housewives of Orange County is on Bravo at 9 PM every Tuesday.
