The feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge came to a head during the Season 13 reunion, and now it looks like they might be working things out. Before part three of the reunion aired this past weekend, Judge shared some sweet pics of the former besties, making it look like they could be mending their friendship.
“RIDE OR DIE!” wrote Judge in the caption. “@shannonbeador we had some growing pains this season, but we are good as gold. I love you to the moon and back, and I’m blessed to have you in my life.”
The RHOC star added the hashtag #unbreakable, and the former friends looked like they were happy to be together again. This is the first time in a long time that we can say that. The pic was a sweet surprise because Judge and Beador didn’t speak between the end of filming for Season 13 and the reunion taping.
As a matter of fact, this is a total 180 compared to their confrontation on part two of the reunion that revealed how their feud started. Judge told host Andy Cohen and the other housewives that during a girl’s trip to New York City this past summer, Beador took her selfishness to another level by forcing them to stay at the expensive Plaza Hotel, and then monopolizing Judge’s make-up artist.
Judge went on to say that Beador plays the victim a lot, but Beador says that Judge didn’t remember things accurately. It continued to be a case of she said, she said for the rest of the reunion, and it was unclear if they were going to be able to work things out.
According to Life & Style, they have reunited and are back to “ride or die” status.
They are also sticking together when it comes to the lawsuit that Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband filed against them. He has claimed that Beador and Judge cost him over a million dollars in damage to his business because of comments they made on a podcast this past summer, but the women say that he needs to prove it.
In court documents obtained by The Blast, Beador and Judge are questioning Jim Bellino’s claim that their statements hurt his trampoline business Skyzone.
Beador said during the podcast that “visitors who regularly visit SkyZone no longer do because they have heard that people get paralyzed there.” She says that Bellino can’t link that statement to a loss of business.
Both Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador believe that Bellino doesn’t have any evidence to back up his claims, and instead he “rests solely on his own statement.” And, they have asked the judge to dismiss the case.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Orange County will return to Bravo in 2019.
