Tamra Judge feels ‘betrayed’ by Shannon Beador after ‘RHOC’ exit
The Tres Amigas are saying adios to each other.
Tamra Judge revealed on “Jeff Lewis Live” that she and former best friend Shannon Beador have not spoken since February. Judge, 52, and Beador, 56, had a rollercoaster friendship with Vicki Gunvalson that played out on “The Real Housewives of Orange County;” however, Gunvalson, 58, and Judge revealed at the end of Season 14 (2019) that they would not be returning to the show.
Beador, however, is already filming the upcoming season.
“There was no big fight that happened between us,” Judge said on the SiriusXM show. “I was going through a really, really hard time in my life. I’m not a needy person and I’m not one of those that needs my friends like all the time like she needed me and you know, we’re all different like that. And I really needed her.”
She continued, “I really needed a friend like I was, you know, walking away from a big contract. Something I was involved in, 12 years of my life. Simon had cancer. I was scared to death about that. My kids were not coping well with it. I decided to move out of my house. Like there were so many changes at once and I just wanted a friend to talk to. And I was calling her and she would send me to voicemail and send me to voicemail and send me to voicemail and then finally like weeks later like she finally called me back and we had a good talk, but it was she called me because she needed something. It’s not like she called me because you know she wants to know how I was doing. And we had a decent talk and then I just really never heard from her again.”
“I just feel betrayed,” she concluded. “I feel like I was always there for her and I had no problem being there for her and she wasn’t an easy person to deal with when she was going through the divorce. I talked to her multiple times a day and then as soon as she knew Vicki and I weren’t coming back, we just, the calls just kind of dwindled and then finally it was no phone call at all. So it’s just hard because I really needed her and if I would have done that to her when she was going through the divorce and all that she would have lost it.”
Beador filed for divorce from her then-husband David in 2017 following a cheating scandal that played out on the show. Beador broke down multiple times over the demise of her marriage on the show until their divorce was finalized in April 2019. Her ex-husband is now expecting a baby with his new fiancée, Lesley Cook.
It doesn’t look like Judge will send the couple a baby gift, as David previously told Page Six that he is no longer friends with her or her husband, Eddie, either.
A rep for Beador didn’t immediately get back to us.
