Vicki Gunvalson hugs Shannon Beador & Tamra Judge

After two (boring) seasons of beefing on Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson are finally friends again. Now we can all hope that means we will be blessed with an interesting Season 13.

Nevertheless, it took more than that Season 12 reunion hug to mend their strained relationship. Tamra revealed that Vicki had to sit down with her husband Eddie Judge to talk out their differences. Vick spread rumors that Eddie was “secretly gay” and invited former Orange County Housewives to appear on the show solely to perpetuate that story.

In an interview with TooFab, Tamra revealed, “It took some time, but Vicki made the right choice to sit down with Eddie.” She explained,  “If she hadn’t, it would’ve been really difficult to get close to her again.”

Eddie seems like one of the nicest husbands in the Real Housewives franchise, so it’s not surprising that he was supportive of Tamra and Vicki rekindling their friendship. Nevertheless, Tamra admits that her “whole family” was very much against another shot at friendship with Vicki. She also said, “It really affected a lot of people in my family, including my children — just the things that were asked to them at school. My family was like, ‘Why? Why? Why?'” Because they are cast members on the same reality TV show and it really went downhill when Vicki and Tamra refused to acknowledge each other.

Tamra shared, “My mom was the hardest one [to convince] because she just loves Eddie so much. Tamra emphasized, “She just kept telling me, ‘Don’t ever trust her. Ever.'”

Yes, Tamra and Vicki are cool these days, but she doesn’t fully trust the OG Housewife. Tamra admitted, “I’m cautious. Let’s just keep it at that. Something like that — something at that level — you keep it in the back of your head, but you have to try to move on. And I told myself to try to move on.” And then she can see if Vicki talks shit about her during on-camera interviews next season and reassess their relationship.

What else do the viewers have to look forward to next season? Tamra teased, “Kelly [Dodd] and Vicki’s relationship changes a little bit, and me and Shannon [Beador] have it out.” She also said,”So there’s truly a fine line between love and hate.” That sounds like a way more interesting season than we were subjected to last year.
