Kelly Dodd Claims Tamra Judge Was Ready To Throw 'Outcast' Vicki Gunvalson Out Of Her House
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Orange County just started, but it’s already shaping up to be one of the most drama-filled seasons in the show’s history. Kelly Dodd appears to be going to war with just about everyone else in the cast, and she claims that during the most recent episode - which featured Tamra Judge’s housewarming party - Judge was ready to throw Vicki Gunvalson out of her house.
Dodd said during an interview with People Magazine that Judge wasn’t trying to keep the peace that night between her and Gunvalson, who have been at war with each other since the Season 13 reunion. Instead, Judge was stirring the pot because she “didn’t even like Vicki at this moment.”
“First of all, she invited Vicki when she knew damn good and well that I didn’t want Vicki to be there. She did that to prod at me,” claims Dodd. “She wasn’t even friends with Vicki all that much. She didn’t like Vicki all that much. She asked me...she said ‘hey, do you want me to throw her out of the house?’ Like she got in a fight with her. I don’t know if that’s on there. But, she didn’t want, really want Vicki there because she was getting irritated by Vicki.”
Dodd says that Judge was out to get her, but undercover, and it’s weird that Gunvalson and Judge are suddenly best friends. Dodd believes that Gunvalson, Judge, and Shannon Beador formed an alliance and started their “Tres Amigas thing” because they are getting older and they feel like their jobs are in jeopardy. She says their strategy is to form a bond so all three won’t get fired or demoted.
Ultimately, Dodd says that Season 14 is all about her, and she also calls Gunvalson - who Bravo demoted to a friend of the show - an “outcast” and claims no one really wants to film with her. After Gunvalson chased her around Judge’s house to apologize for accusing her of using cocaine during the Season 13 reunion, Dodd says it was just an attempt to “get back in the group” so Gunvalson could get more airtime.
Dodd believes that Season 14 is the best season of RHOC so far, and she managed to throw in some extra shade by claiming her “shack on the beach” is worth more than Judge’s house in Coto de Caza.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesday nights on Bravo.
