Tamra Judge: I’m Not the Best at Communicating My Problems

"Every girl has that one best friend who knows everything about them, and that is my friendship with Shannon."

By Tamra Judge
Tamra Judge Explains Her Allegiance to Shannon Beador Why does Eddie think you enable Shannon?

How to Watch

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

Tamra Judge: Eddie would hear me talk to Shannon numerous times a day. Sometimes, he thought that I should’ve been a little tougher on her to help her move on. I was so worried about hurting her feelings, so he felt that I was enabling her.

The past four years of Shannon’s marriage have been a roller coaster. I’ve been the one there for her every step of the way.

I try to be the best friend I can be and just listen to her, but that gets exhausting. I was going through my own issues with Eddie’s health and my patience was running short.

Shannon Beador Is Feeling a Lot of Stress

There were definitely times that I wanted to say to Shannon that I wish she could be a little bit more positive, but I just didn’t have it in me. Shannon is very emotional, and I just didn’t want to upset her.

I’m not the best at communicating my problems, and Shannon is the complete opposite. I think at the end of the day we balance each other out. Do you think Shannon and you are codependent as Kelly says?

TJ: Codependent is a strong word! I don’t think that Shannon and I are codependent. I think that we are really good friends. We do a lot together, and we rely on each other. I think every girl has that one best friend who knows everything about them, and that is my friendship with Shannon. We are more like sisters than friends.
