Tamra Judge Says She “Did The Viewers A Favor” By Exposing Kelly Dodd Train Rumors

The newest season of the Real Housewives of Orange County has been action packed so far. Take notes Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Gina Kirschenheiter finally admitted her husband had an affair, and on top of that she got arrested for a DUI. And Gina’s not the only one with a relationship in trouble.

Emily Simpson’s marriage is crumbling before our eyes. To be fair, it would be a miracle if anyone could make a marriage work with Shane “no hugs” Simpson. And speaking of crumbling, that accurately describes Kelly Dodd and Tamra Judge’s friendship. Right off the bat, Tamra blurted out a rumor about Kelly that was pretty low.

I didn’t think the cocaine rumor Vicki Gunvalson said about Kelly last year could be topped, but here we are. Tamra spilled the rumor that Kelly had slept with multiple men at once. Only Tamra classed it up and said that Kelly ran a train. #Sarcasm.

And surprise, surprise, Tamra has no regrets. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tamra discussed her part in the train rumor, and if she and Kelly can ever repair their friendship. I’m going to guess that is a hard “no.” At least for a couple of seasons.

Tamra said that the train rumor “needed to be exposed to save the group from two years with Vicki Gunvalson saying, ‘I know something that I can’t reveal!'” How very noble of her, sharing lurid gossip about Kelly so she doesn’t have to suffer listening to Vicki’s BS.

She stated,”I feel I did the viewers a favor.” Whatever helps you sleep at night! Tamra said, “It was something that was told to Shannon [Beador] and Vicki last year, offseason…I never really thought it was gonna be brought up or an issue or anything, but then Vicki kept going, going and I’m like, ‘Are you talking about the train?’ Almost like, ‘That stupid rumor?”

Tamra then admitted that she didn’t think “it was gonna go that far.” Girl, please. First of all, she was far from nonchalant about the train rumor. She was practically frothing at the mouth waiting for Vicki to stop talking so she could interject. And second, how could she think that this rumor wouldn’t “go that far?” It’s so over the top and ridiculous.

She then discussed her friendship with Kelly. Tamra said, “Kelly and I were talking a lot. We were drawn together because I know what it’s like to be a victim of Vicki rumors, right? She would talk to me all the time and I’m like, ‘I get it, I get it! And she’s like, ‘I don’t know how you can forgive her!’ And I’m like, ‘It takes time.”

For anyone who thought there might be one small chance they make up, Tamra shuts that down. She said, “Three quarters into the season, everything falls apart. Kelly does something towards the end of the [season] that is very hurtful and very damaging.”

She added, “I tried not to bring too much light to it, because I really didn’t want to talk about it, so I kind of kept those emotions in.” Tamra doesn’t say what happened between them, she just said that “it’s bad.”

What could Kelly have done that could be any worse than the train rumor? Whatever it is, let’s just hope that it was sent via pig face animoji. 

TELL US – DO YOU AGREE WITH TAMRA THAT THE TRAIN RUMOR NEEDED TO BE EXPOSED? WHAT DO YOU THINK KELLY DID AT THE END OF THE SEASON TO UPSET TAMRA? DO YOU THINK THEY WILL EVER BE ABLE TO REPAIR THEIR FRIENDSHIP?
