Vicki Gunvalson Blames Shannon Beador for Disrupting Her Friendship with Tamra Judge

But that's up for debate on #WWHL.

Did Shannon Disrupt Tamra & Vicki’s Friendship?

Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge are definitely not in a good place this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. However, the OG of the RHOC thinks that they wouldn't be on such bad terms if it weren't for one Housewife: Shannon Beador. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on  Peacock and the Bravo App.

That's according to Vicki, who made that statement during Monday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. When one caller asked Vicki if she thinks things would be different between her and Tamra if Shannon wasn't in the picture, the RHOC mom replied with a definitive, "What do you think? What do you think? I think yes." 

Vicki also asked Andy Cohen to weigh in on the matter. "I think without Shannon in the picture, we don't know what would have happened between the two of you," he said. 

But Vicki's fellow WWHL guest Lydia McLaughlin still thinks this RHOC friendship would be strained with or without Shannon around. "I think that Tamra has been hurt, and I think that hurt would be there if Shannon was there or not," she explained. "But sometimes, it is nice to have that alliance with somebody." 

Vicki was also asked if it's a good idea to be pals with Kelly Dodd as she tries to repair their friendship since Kelly had some major drama with Tamra last season. "Well, I like Kelly," Vicki replied. "Kelly hasn't hurt me yet."

Does Vicki Miss Tamra’s Friendship?

Vicki and Tamra's issues stem from Vicki bringing up rumors last season questioning the sexuality of Tamra's husband, Eddie Judge. And now Vicki is hoping that she and Tamra can just move on and get back to being the best buds they once were. "I totally miss Tamra. I've told her that," Vicki shared. "And I said, 'I want to bury the hatchet, and I want to be friends again.'" 

However, Tamra doesn't exactly seem to be on the same page with Vicki. "No. If I never speak to the woman again it would be the best day. It would be too soon," Tamra told The Daily Dish last week. "I think she has done so much to me and I think she has zero boundaries. She does not care about my family, my children, my husband, my marriage, my business. She attacks my business. When somebody has zero boundaries -- and I've always said if you're gonna lie about your own life then you're gonna lie about other people's lives. So she's a liar."
