As far as Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador’s feelings toward the OG of the OC are concerned, it looks like the Shannon airport shuttle fracas was the final straw. On Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Kelly Dodd repeated some gnarly rumors she'd heard from one Ms. Gunvalson regarding Judge and Beador's husbands, and neither Judge nor Beador are here for it. In a recent interview with E! News, OC Housewives Judge and Beador confirmed that they are done with Vicki Gunvalson because "she just lies too much." Now, this isn’t the first time these two have been on the outs with the queen of whooping it up (*waves to Season 10*), but it sounds like she's really mucked things up this go-round. When asked about the current status of their relationships with Gunvalson, Judge told E! News that she is “not speaking to her,” while Beador insisted that “ties are severed forever.”
If Judge and Beador really are as through with Gunvalson as they say they are, that could make for an interesting twelfth season of RHOC (presuming it’s renewed and presuming Gunvalson, Beador, and Judge come back, of course). What if they really won’t have anything to do with Gunvalson? What if Beador and Judge go an entire season without speaking to or looking at or acknowledging her? What if this series just turns into a master class in the silent treatment? I could barely handle Beador ignoring Gunvalson at Judge’s fitness competition. (Don’t get me wrong, I understand why Beador was mad. I just wasn’t ready for that level of iciness on a Monday night.) I’m not sure my heart could take an entire season of that. (Just kidding, my heart would love every passive aggressive second.)
…I mean, that’ll probably never happen. If I know anything about these three, they're more likely to run into each other at a party, scream at each other in front of all of the others guests, air out all of the grievances, make up a few days later, and plan a trip to Andales than spend an entire season shunning each other.
Also? If I’ve learned anything from this series, it’s that anyone can reconcile. Hi, even Gunvalson and Gretchen Rossi made nice. Anything is possible.
