In the wake of allegations made by Tamra Judge's former friend, Ricky Santana, about her husband, Eddie Judge being gay, fellow reality TV hubby, Todd Chrisley, is sharing his take on the chatter. Todd, who is a friend of Tamra's and has also been the subject of speculation about his sexuality, shared his opinion in a statement to Us Weekly.
“I think it's horrible that this world goes to such levels. I find it shameful that as voyeurs, we as a society will watch on the edge of our seats the take down of another human being and applaud it. It’s barbaric," the Chrisley Knows Best dad said about the gossip taking place on The Real Housewives of Orange County. "Someone's sexual orientation or race or religion isn't a weapon to be used against them."
Tamra seemed appreciative of the words of support from her pal, sharing his statement on Twitter along with hands up and heart emojis.
As for Tamra's relationship with Ricky, who was her best man in her wedding to Eddie, she confirmed he is no longer in her life. "Important to note: this 'best man' is no longer friends with Tamra so what's his motive? Hmm. Something's fishy," Meghan King Edmonds wrote, with Tamra adding, "Right! His attempt last night was confirmation that I did the right thing by getting him out of my life. He's with the right people now."
Tamra also headed to Instagram to shut down the speculation about her husband. "How orchestrated and wrong was that? The worst acting I've ever seen. They are nothing but homophobic bullies that think it's okay to try and Out a straight man hoping to humiliate him," she wrote. "Well guess what it didn't work! It's Not the 1920's and being gay is not something to be ashamed of or mocked. You should all be ashamed of yourself. We all know who was behind this .... bye."
