In her latest blog entry, Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson is not holding back when it comes to sharing her side of things with Tamra Judge. Vicki accuses her former bestie of being calculated and vicious, among other things. She also wants to see some compassion and forgiveness coming from Tamra and Shannon Beador.
Vicki starts off on a positive note by sharing what a “calm balance” her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, brings to her life and how much she loves being able to help Briana with the boys when she has to work a long shift. She then dives into the drama of this week’s episode. “I’m glad that Meghan invited me to the Sip-N-See to see Aspen and to put aside our differences from the past.” She adds, “I don’t necessarily agree with everything she did, but now that time has gone by I can reflect on what I did wrong as well.”
Vicki then goes straight in on Tamra Judge. “Now onto Tamra for a moment. Tamra plays “psychiatrist” to all of us, which as Kelly pointed out last year at the reunion she is unqualified to do. She does this for the mere fact to attempt to position herself as IF she is above everybody else. She is quick to say, “Kelly fights dirty,” but Kelly hits you where it hurts, impulsive and in the heat of the moment, whereas Tamra has shown time and time again her viciousness is premeditated and calculated. A few examples of the depths Tamra sinks to… calling me “old lady” at the reunion, saying she is “better than me,” calling her bestie, Shannon, “Hannibal Lecter” during her interviews, criticizing Shannon for eating and drinking too much, giving me a t-shirt at Shannon’s fitness competition celebration that said I was convicted of lying, and this week telling Meghan and Shannon I am the sh** on the bottom of her shoes. She obviously “thinks” she is better than me which she is not. She acts superior among us women when she is not. Talk about delusional!”
Vicki then lays into Tamra and Shannon together and wants to know why Tamra can’t see that VICKI is a VICTIM! “I am going to try my best to be as diplomatic and classy as possible, but these women are out of line. Tamra has this idea in her head that I’m this evil person, and that I go around making up lies which I don’t. She can’t get off my ex-boyfriend’s name, and is stuck in a relationship of mine that ended over two years ago, which had nothing to do with her. I am the one who was damaged, I am the one who was lied to, I am the one who supported him financially, and I am the one who was hurt. Why can’t she ever see it out of anyone else’s eyes but her own? She got involved in my relationship when in fact, that is her entire “beef” with me is that she doesn’t want anyone in her family or her relationship. Such a hypocrite.”
Vicki then lays it all out there in her blog: “Here’s the facts once and for all: Tamra should address these rumors with her husband head on and move on from it. 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!”
She continues, “Tamra is stuck in the past regarding my ex-boyfriend, and I’m tired of every time she opens her mouth about me she calls me a LIAR. “He” has already revealed in multiple interviews that I was never in on a scam! Furthermore, a scammer benefits from the scam. What did I ever benefit from this so called scam? NOTHING! Now I ask the question why do Tamra and Shannon continue to bring up a relationship that ended over two years ago? I wasn’t married to him, I wasn’t engaged, and I was the one who was scammed! I personally think it’s a way for them to deflect off their own families back onto me so no one focuses on them. I’m going to sit back and watch Karma do its job with them because it always does. I think it’s completely disrespectful to Steve that she would continue to talk about my ex. I’m not talking about Simon, so why is she so hung up on a past relationship of mine? Can you say “DEFLECTION?” Very clearly in this public statement “he” made after we broke up, that I was NOT in any scam. Now move on!”
And there’s more, “Hearing Tamra’s filthy mouth is so classless, and I’m tired of her continuing to talk crap about me. She continues to try and influence my friends that I’m a bad person. Just wait, Shannon, it’s only a matter of time before she turns on you too. 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. Tamra and Shannon want to continue the conversation on “what I have done to them,” and if I started the list I would be here all day long writing it. They know what they have done, and it’s not pretty. Tamra is notorious for hurting people and getting other ladies to side against each other so she feels powerful. It’s a game she has been playing for years, and I’m not playing it any longer. Tamra is notorious for kicking someone when they are down, which I have no desire to do to her.”
Vicki ends with how much she’s been hurt by the “toxic” actions of Shannon and Tamra. “The conclusion of my blog this week is I’m hurt by all this toxic behavior and negativity by Shannon and Tamra. I am in a really good place with my family and my relationship with Steve, and I don’t want it to be influenced by their negativity anymore. I have no desire to stoop to Tamra’s level by name calling her, but I wish she would once and for all rise above her anger and show her children and the world what it’s like to be “kind,” forgiving and loving.”
