Recently, the relationship between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador has become fractured, and the former besties are no longer speaking. And in a new interview, Judge is claiming that it is all Gina Kirschenheiter’s fault.
While talking to TooFab, Judge said that she recently saw a very important RHOC scene that proved to her that Kirschenheiter is a sneaky saboteur. In the scene, Kirschenheiter tells Beador what Judge and other friends had said about her behind her back, and Judge says it was a weird situation because Kirschenheiter and Beador aren’t close. But, it was Kirschenheiter’s words that ended up driving a wedge between Beador and Judge.

“So for her [Kirschenheiter] to say, ‘Oh, I’m so worried about your mental state,’ but yet, prior to that, all she was doing was shit-talking Shannon? It wasn’t cool at all,” says Judge.
Judge is also critical about Kirschenheiter’s timing, and she says it was a shady move for her to make just a few days after Beador’s cosmetic eye surgery. Judge believes that Beador was trying to focus on her recovery, and all Kirschenheiter wanted to do was to upset her.
In Judge’s eyes, Kirschenheiter is a troublemaker, but there is no clear endgame. She can’t figure out the point of Kirschenheiter telling Beador the things she told her, and what it is she had to gain from it.
Judge says that Kirschenheiter got close to Beador about “15 minutes ago,” and she doesn’t believe she was trying to be earnest when she told Beador what her friends were saying.
In Gina Kirschenheiter’s defense, Judge says that she did say “friends,” but when she got Beador’s side of the story, it came across as “Gina said you were saying all kinds of horrible things about my mental state.”
Shannon Beador has gone through a lot in the past year, and she was obviously very distressed at the time. And, for that reason, Judge wanted to wait to hear from Kirschenheiter before she lost it. Judge says that Kirschenheiter’s side of the story “wasn’t great.”
After filming the reunion special last month, Judge says that everyone in the cast parted ways “on decent terms,” and nobody is fighting except for Vicki Gunvalson and Kelly Dodd. Especially after fans saw Dodd’s assessment about who should stay and who should leave the series.
Dodd recently revealed that she didn’t think Gunvalson should be on RHOC anymore, but Judge says that is funny because Gunvalson doesn’t think Dodd belongs on the show, either.
But, Tamra Judge thinks they are both great for the show, and they are exactly what it needs.
