Unfortunately, Real Housewives of Orange County has become another show that has relied on “gay rumors” to be insulting and scandalous for the sake of a story line. This time it’s Vicki Gunvalson perpetuating rumors that Eddie Judge is “secretly gay” and not faithful to Tamra Judge.
So, it didn’t seem like a coincidence that Tamra’s enemy Gretchen Rossi and Tamra’s ex best friend Ricky showed up to Vicki’s birthday party and “just happen” to gossip about Eddie. It is very obvious that multiple people planned out that conversation ahead of time.
When Tamra appeared on Watch What Happens Live, she told Andy Cohen, “It was totally staged. Vicki set up the entire scene. It was quite evident by the bad acting. I think that in today’s day and age that we’re still talking and trying to ‘humiliate’ or ‘bring somebody down’ because they’re gay is disgusting. Who are they to say that? And let’s say he was, who are they to throw him out of the closet like that? I think it’s absolutely sickening.”
Agreed. Anyone with eyes could tell that conversation at Vicki‘s party was far from candid.
Andy asked Tamra if she’s still in touch with Heather Dubrow. Surprisingly enough, Tamra said, “Yes, we are.” Andy couldn’t help pointing out, “She unfollowed all of you on social media.” Tamra didn’t seem at all fazed by that. She just said, “She did. I think it was really hard for her leaving the show and seeing everything that was going on. She’s a very sensitive girl. She’s lovely.”
Interesting turn of events, that’s for sure.
It seemed like Tamra could not be provoked during this episode, but Andy and the viewers definitely tried to get some interesting soundbites out of her. One caller asked, “If you ran into Gretchen on the street, what would you say to her?” Tamra responded, “Probably nothing. I haven’t seen her in probably four or five years. I don’t have a friendship with her.”
Then Andy couldn’t help asking Tamra if Gretchen was in on orchestrating that Eddie gossip at Vicki’s birthday – which she obviously was – and Tamra said, “Absolutely.” And then Tamra really went in on Gretchen: “She’s kind of been a little bit obsessed with my life for the past four or five years – since she got fired and she clearly wants her job back. Unfortunately, instead of coming on the show and doing something that is more positive, she wanted to rip me down and it doesn’t affect me. I don’t really care.”
