Bravotv.com: What did you think about Kelly saying Steve is only with Vicki for her money?
Tamra Judge: Oh boy, here we go with rumors. At this point in my life, I don’t believe anything unless I see it with my own eyes or hear it with my ears from that person. I heard some rumors when they broke up. I went directly to Vicki to tell her, and we never spoke about it again. I have a feeling I’m not the only one that heard it, and it’s about to come out!
Kelly and Steve clearly have unsettled business. Things went bad after Michael was set up with Vicki’s friend. Then Steve went to Page 6 to take the blame off of Vicki and put the blame on himself. Not sure I agree with that tactic.
I feel like Kelly is just clapping back with things she heard around town. I’m pretty sure everybody in this group has done that when upset, especially Vicki! When Vicki came over, I told her what was said. I don’t want any surprises, and I certainly don’t want it to get back to Vicki and make her think I was spreading rumors. The game of telephone can be hurtful.
Bravotv.com: Explain why you think it’s weird Gina is getting divorced.
TJ: I’m not gonna lie, Gina’s divorce does sound a little odd. Most people who are getting divorced can’t stand the sight of the other person, they're not physically attracted to them, and they certainly don't want to hang out with him.
Who knows, maybe Gina and Matt will be the Demi Moore and Bruce Willis of Orange County?
Bravotv.com: Do you still think Vicki doesn’t love Steve?
TJ: At this point, I’m just getting to know Vicki and Steve as a couple. One minute I’m rallying for Vicki and Steve to get married, the next minute I’m wondering does she really love him? Vicki has said things to me like, “Do I need to be fixed up with the matchmaker?” When I say, “NO,” she says, “I’ll call you later.” That seems a little suspicious. Not a comment I would make if I were in a loving relationship. I’ve now been around Steve and Vicki for about eight months, and I would have to say that Vicki is truly in love. I’m very sorry to have made that comment, but sometimes my big mouth “calls em like I sees em.”
