Ever since Vicki Gunvalson hugged it out with Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador at the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 reunion, she has done whatever she could
to make sure she’s not in the dog house ever again to maintain those friendships.
Most people watching Real Housewives of Orange County this season have seen the cracks in Tamra and Shannon’s relationship. One one hand, it’s clear that Tamra has truly been there for Shannon, at all hours of the night, as she has pointed out many times. On the other hand, Tamra copped to “enabling” Shannon because she “feels sorry for her” during a conversation with Emily Simpson and Gina Kirschenheiter. Tamra also told the other ladies that Shannon was not there for her when her husband Eddie Judge was in the hospital. Short story long, Tamra talked about her issues with Shannon to everyone who would listen. Gina brought this to Shannon’s attention multiple times and now Vicki is questioning Gina’s motives.
During the cast trip in Jamaica, Gina called out Shannon for not being a good “friend” during a group dinner with all the Housewives. Shannon asked Tamra to defend her and Tamra did not say single word. As we all know, this lead to Shannon fighting with the entire cast, disappearing, and ignoring all of their messages. They swept this shit under the rug very quickly and they just sipped coconut drinks in the ocean as if nothing happened the next day.
Gina found that very quick reconciliation to be very odd. Same here, girl. Then she picked up her spoon to stir the pot during the last RHOC episode. Gina went with Kelly Dodd to check on a post-plastic surgery Shannon. For some reason Gina thought that was a great time to “warn” Shannon about the shit Tamra has been talking. Couldn’t she at least wait until the swelling went down?
In a Bravo blog post, Vicki wrote, “It was surprising to watch the conflict between Gina and Tamra. Being Shannon and Tamra’s friend, I was happy that they were in a better place after our trip to Jamaica. Then Gina felt that she needed to start stirring things up again.” Well, yeah. That’s what happens on Real Housewives of Orange County. Stirring things up is just par for the course, but it’s usually Tamra the one who’s wielding the spoon.
Vicki admitted, “I’m not sure what Gina’s real motives are for making sure Shannon ‘knows what her friends are saying about her,’ but I don’t think her intentions are pure here.”
But whose intentions are really “pure” in this situation? Shannon neglected to check on Tamra and her ailing husband, Tamra talked about Shannon to anyone who would listen, and Gina told Shannon about the conversations that went on behind her back. Is it possible that everyone involved can be “wrong” in some way? If so, then that’s what’s going on here.
TELL US- IS GINA STIRRING THE POT? OR DOES SHE HAVE PURE MOTIVES?
