Does Tamra Judge Think Vicki Gunvalson Took Advantage of the Sand Dune Accident?

The #RHOC fitness guru's opinion has changed since she saw the drama play out on TV.

Did Vicki Take Advantage of the Accident?

Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, and Kelly Dodd rallied around an injured Vicki Gunvalson following the frightening sand dune accident featured in last week's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Of course, this was a far cry from the drama the ladies had with the OG last season amid the controversy surrounding her ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers and his cancer diagnosis. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

It appears that this turn of events seemed to happen a little too quickly for some fans, leaving them to wonder if Vicki was taking advantage of the sympathy she received while recovering in the hospital after the accident in order to get in her friends' good graces again. "Yeah, I think she was exaggerating," Tamra told one caller during Watch What Happens Live on Monday night (clip above). 

The RHOC fitness guru, who was also rushed to the hospital after the accident, said she felt that way because a nurse at the scene had told her that Vicki had initially seemed to be moving her neck fine and asking, "What just happened?" before she "hit the ground" and yelled in pain, "Oh, my neck hurts!" "And they always say it's the quiet ones you have to worry about; it's not the ones that are like, 'Ugh, ugh, ugh,'" Tamra said. 

However, Tamra seemed to show a lot more sympathy for Vicki and her injuries in the days after the accident during Monday night's episode. She even criticized Shannon Beador and Meghan King Edmonds, who did not attend the Glamis camping trip, for not taking the accident seriously enough and visiting Vicki in the hospital.

Tamra Confronts Meghan and Shannon About Not Visiting an Injured Vicki

Meghan said during the episode on Twitter that she "never expected Tamra to talk to me like that."


She then added that she was sorry for the way everything went down after the accident. "Of course I’m glad everyone’s ok and I feel bad that everything played out the way it did," she wrote in one tweet.


Meghan also said that she and Vicki have since patched things up. "I feel terrible that @vgunvalson had to go through everything alone," she said in another tweet. "I’m glad I was able to apologize and that we are in a good place now."


Vicki confirmed on Twitter Monday night that Meghan has "reached out a few times" and said that if the situation were reversed, she "would have been there in a second" to visit her in the hospital.


It looks like everyone will continue to feel the fallout from the sand dune accident in next week's episode of RHOC airing Monday at 9/8c. Take a look at what else you can expect from the drama-filled installment, below.
