Tamra Judge Says Shannon Beador Turned on Her When She Said She ‘Needed Help’

Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador’s friendship is dying, as Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18 will likely prove. Currently, Shannon is still dealing with the fallout from her DUI. Her ex is also now dating one of her costars, so this season won’t be an easy one. According to Tamra though, she tried to help Shannon. Shannon, however, allegedly chose to turn her back on Tamra.

And now, I’m singing “Turn the beat Beador arouuuuund. Because my attention span matches that of a gnat.” But Tamra’s focused. Here’s what she just posted.

“Stay tuned,” says Tamra

Bravo just released the first seven minutes of the RHOC Season 18 premiere. In this, we see Shannon discussing her DUI and her subsequent car crash. She asks “What kind of example am I at 59?”

Shannon then reveals that she was at John Janssen’s house on the night of her incident. They fought, and she revved her engine loudly. You know, to let him know that she was upset. But then, she lost control of her car.

Across town, Tamra’s lost respect for Shannon. Everyone seems worried, but no one really knows how to move forward. On X though, one fan had an opinion on this matter, writing “Tamra took that incident and ran with it to make it a storyline. A true friend would tell Shannon this behind cameras and then tell her she needs help and still be there for her.”

Naturally, the fighter that is Tamra quickly clapped back. She kept it classy though, simply explaining why she’s no longer in Shannon’s corner. I mean, she was. But Shannon apparently said nope.

“Stay tuned. You haven’t seen everything yet. I did tell her in private, right after the DUI, that this was a wake-up call and she needed help. But she turned on me because she didn’t like what I had to say…” Tamra explained.

Consider me staying tuned. While simultaneously hoping that Shannon can still turn the Beador arouuuuund.

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18 lands on Bravo on July 11 at 9/8c.
