RHOC Alums Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson Dish on How Shannon Beador "Screamed at Producers" During Cast Trip as Vicki Questions Why She Was 'Kept On' Show, Plus They Throw Shade at Kelly Dodd

Former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge celebrated Cinco de Mayo by whooping it up with tequila, throwing serious shade, and dropping some Orange County tea.

The BFFs sat down together over Instagram live on May 5 to discuss a former member of the “Tres Amigas,” Shannon Beador, and shared an interesting detail of what we didn’t see on RHOC. 

In the video, the women shared how, on their Key West trip last year, fans didn’t get to see a crazy blow up from Shannon, where she allegedly “screamed” at producers and threw a fit.

Tamra explained how on their last night in Key West, they had a kind of “booze cruise” with a lot of people the cast didn’t know.

“She went f–king ballistic,” Tamra explained. “[She] was screaming and yelling at the producer and I’m like, ‘Stop!’ [and] people were filming her. It was so bad that you don’t even see her the entire time on the last trip because she was in the room screaming at the producer.”

Vicki then noted how the show “kept her on” after that behavior — most likely lamenting about her demotion to “friend” status.

Tamra added how production “made her come out to take a picture” with the cast and Shannon lied about being “sea sick.”

Tamra then turned to the topic of Kelly Dodd — a housewife she and Vicki have both feuded with in the past. Considering how the two handled Kelly and Shannon’s recent rekindling of their friendship, the drama between the women shows no sign of slowing down.

“[She’s] completely unpredictable,” Vicki said in the clip. “She can be kindest, best friend in the whole wide world and next thing you know she SLASHES your throat.”

After a fan defended Kelly as “Queen Kelly Dodd” in the comments, Vicki expressed her distaste and Tamra went off, calling out Kelly’s bad behavior on the show and shading her recent controversial comments about the coronavirus being God’s way of “thinning the herd.”

“Yes, ‘Queen,’ the girl who went and flipped people off–” noted Tamra.

“– Right, she’s a Queen,” Vicki interjected sarcastically.

“[The girl] who said [the virus] is gonna weed out the weak and kill off the herd like … yeah, she’s cool,” Tamra joked.
