The former and current cast members of RHOC are fighting it out in Instagram comments, but should those in glass houses really be throwing any stones?
According to Us Weekly, Tamra was on Instagram live doing a Q&A with fans when someone asked how she felt about Kelly and the video. The video referred to one released by TMZ from before her first season, shows Kelly saying, “I don’t like Black guys. I don’t even know any Black guys.”
Kelly apologized for the inexcusable comments back in the day and has again apologized, but how does Tamra think she is any better?
Tamra has had plenty of inexcusable issues in her own past, why is Tamra coming for Kelly now? If Kelly should be fired, Tamra should have been fired right along with her.
Tamra once used a slur for homosexual men when discussing Slade Smiley and his choice of flipflops back in the season four finale. Tamra even apologized and made a statement to GLAAD back in 2009 for it. Tamra used another derogatory term when her husband, Eddie Judge, ordered fresh guacamole at a Mexican restaurant during season eight, episode five. She even says “be****r” and “cr****r” are their nicknames in this Tweet from 2013.
If Bravo has a “zero-tolerance policy,” shouldn’t she have been fired long ago? Don’t even get us started on the “Naked Wasted” episode from season four. “We’re going to try and make her do something stupid,” Tamra said to Vicki Gunvalson while they drank copious amounts of cocktails.
Obviously, Kelly responded when a fan asked what she thought of Tamra’s comments. Kelly said that Tamra was just thirsty and mad that she got fired. According to Us Weekly, Kelly said, “Grasping for straws poor thing .. I hope she finds happiness.” What Kelly said was unacceptable, but she has not addressed the video again. Kelly is basically the queen of saying questionable things and offering insincere apologies.
Though none of the comments or statements are acceptable, Tamra seems to be on a tear lately coming for her former castmates. Tamra even spoke out about how she unfollowed Shannon Beador after Shannon was seen befriending Kelly.
So if Tamra is so concerned about Kelly, perhaps she should recall that fans forgave her for all of the terrible stuff she’s said in the past. Of course, that doesn’t excuse Kelly from her comments, but I would call this a case for Sophie’s choice: they are both terrible.
The Real Housewives of Orange County will be back later this year.
