Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge might have said “adios” to Real Housewives of Orange County, but that doesn’t mean we have heard the last of them. I’m sure that’s exactly how they want it too. These two are so joined at the hip, I can’t imagine them doing anything separate at this point.
As viewers of RHOC, we
suffered through watched many seasons of the so-called “Tres Amigas”, which comprised of Vicki, Tamra, and Shannon Beador. But now that Vicki and Tamra have left the show, all that remains is Shannon and her relationships with her current cast mates. That doesn’t seem to be sitting too well with two thirds of the trio.
Looks like back in March, both Vicki and Tamra unfollowed Shannon on Instagram, making fans wonder what might have happened. Recently Vicki revealed to HollywoodLife that this whole thing is because Shannon went on a double date with boyfriend, John Janssen, Kelly Dodd, and Kelly’s fiance, Rick Leventhal.
Vicki said, “[Shannon] told me and I’ll whatever — It’s full disclosure — That she would never be friends with Kelly again because Kelly hurt her so bad and hurt me so bad and yada yada yada. And next thing you know she invited them over for dinner because they’re neighbors and it just hurt my feelings.”

Vicki continues, “I just thought, ‘You know what? If somebody treated you that bad I’m not going to say, ‘Just come on over.’ And they were not even filming. It was just like, ‘Come on over for dinner.’” I guess Vicki forgot about the time that she went on a double date with her fiance Steve Lodge, Kelly’s ex-husband, Michael Dodd and his new girlfriend? She claimed it was innocent at the time and really couldn’t understand why Kelly would be so hurt. I guess karma has a funny way of catching up to people, huh?
But Vicki wasn’t the only one upset that Shannon would be out there having fun with Kelly. Tamra apparently took issue as well. Vicki dishes, “So Tamra called me and she’s like, ‘I can’t believe that,’ and I’m like, ‘Well then I can’t believe it then!’”
Tamra explains, “You know what, I just don’t want to see it. It’s just that simple. I haven’t really talked to Shannon about some things that are bothering me…but when I have the chance to talk to Shannon, I’ll talk to her about it.” Armed with that info and their mean girl mentality, both Vicki and Tamra decided to hit the unfollow button.
A great time to make amends would have been Vicki and Shannon’s March birthdays but not so fast. Vicki explains, “Then I texted Shannon because my birthday and her birthday are two days apart and she said, ‘Happy Birthday.’ So I think she’s still mad at me. But my phone’s not ringing! She hasn’t called me. The phone works two ways.” I wish Vicki would have put that notion into practice throughout the many, many fights she had on RHOC.

My personal feeling is that Vicki and Tamra are only cool with people when it benefits them for the show. Now that they aren’t on the show using Shannon to do all their dirty work, they have no use for her. Either way, I think Shannon is better off without both of them.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK SHANNON WAS WRONG TO GO OUT WITH KELLY DODD ON A DOUBLE DATE? DO YOU THINK VICKI AND TAMRA ARE BEING PETTY? DO YOU THINK THEY WILL ALL MAKE UP?
