The Real Housewives of Orange County's Ireland trip ended with friendships up in flames after Kelly Dodd told Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge what she said Vicki Gunvalson was gossiping about them. Those rumors? That Tamra's husband, Eddie, is gay and Shannon's husband, David, beat her.
"It is beyond me that someone would make an allegation about someone that is false, that has to do with a criminal act," Shannon told us. "To put that label on my husband that will affect him, will affect my children…because there will be a percentage of people that will believe Vicki and Kelly and we know our truth, but it's just hurtful. I just keep thinking about my kids…"
But Tamra isn't really bothered by the rumors Vicki was spreading. In fact, she's known about them for years. "For me it's laughable, totally laughable. We've been together seven years. If he wanted to be gay he'd just be gay, like, really? It's not like we can't find other people. Yes, I'm going to fall in love with someone who doesn't like me," she said.
However, there is something that bothers Tamra about all of it. "You know what is hurtful to me? Is that my friend is the one doing this…my friend is the one spreading rumors…it's just ridiculous," Tamra said. "I've never done anything to her, the only thing I ever did was try to protect her from Brooks and see how that ended up…I've done nothing to you but try to be a good friend."
