BravoTV.com: Did you worry Eddie wouldn't accept Vicki Gunvalson's apology?
Tamra Judge: I was worried that Eddie would not accept Vicki's apology. I knew my husband would listen to what she had to say but wasn’t sure that he would believe her.
However, I was more concerned with Vicki's delivery of her apology. She tends to have an “untraditional” way of apologizing (apologizes then says YOU did something wrong to her). Vicki keeps saying that she just “repeated a rumor.” We know that she did SO much more than that, but we need to leave it in the past in order to move forward.
BravoTV.com: Did you feel Vicki's apology was sincere?
TJ: I do believe that Vicki’s apology was sincere. The only thing that we don’t understand is she said over and over again that Eddie was “not kind and turned on her.” THAT IS NOT TRUE! For two years Eddie took the abuse. The multiple stories that were written, the TV interviews she did, the recruiting of other people to talk lies about him...all the while Eddie kept silent.
I was the one getting upset. I felt like I had to defend my husband because he was the one getting attacked in retaliation of ME not liking Brooks. It just wasn’t fair!
BravoTV.com: Were you nervous at all to go on a trip with Shannon Beador and Vicki?
TJ: We’re going to Mexico! Leaving Eddie for two days was a tough decision. I had to make sure he was stable and OK with me leaving.
Shannon had been going through so much, and I wanted to be there for her. It was the first time that she’d been away as a single woman. I wanted to see her smile again, forget about the divorce, and have some fun.
