Months after Tamra and the other part of the former “tres amigas,” Vicki Gunvalson, called out Shannon’s perceived abandonment of friendships with them, Shannon finally opened up about the remarks, denying things they said and admitting that she had “no desire” to speak to the women.
Now, Tamra is firing back on social media. She’s taking jabs at Shannon for what she said in the interview and calling out her lack of “loyalty” when it comes to their friendship.
In an Instagram post shared on Wednesday, Tamra shared a message about disloyal relationships. Although she didn’t name names, it was obvious who the message was aimed at.
“Some people aren’t loyal to you … they are loyal to their need of you,” the statement read. “Once their needs change, so does their loyalty.”
Tamra then went on to express her thoughts further in a lengthy caption, detailing Shannon’s perceived mistreatment of her.
“In my experience loyal friends don’t constantly tell you ‘IM A LOYAL FRIEND’ if they do…. they are full of self-deception! Turning your back on a friend because they live 45 minutes away and don’t party in your circle anymore , isn’t any kind of friend in my book,” Tamra scoffed.
She continued, “Loyal friends are there for you when you’re going through hard time, ask you how your kids are doing as their dad fights cancer, asks if you need help when your husband is having heart surgery , cries with you & accept you for who you are during good & bad times. your actions will always speak louder than your words! #alwaysthevictim #onesidedfriendshipssuck please stop saying you’re a loyal friend! Your ET interview was filled with hypocrisy & lies and if you want to keep it up I’ll bring out receipts! #yourloyaltyistothespotlight[.]”
Tamra also left a comment on a post from the aforementioned interview with Entertainment Tonight, calling out Shannon’s saying that she was able to “develop those relationships” with the rest of the RHOC cast once Vicki and Tamra left the show.
“Ohhh cuz we stopped you from developing those relationships ????,” Tamra wrote (re-posted by Comments By Bravo). “You told me all season to stay away from Kelly [Dodd] and Emily [Simpson] … lies lies lies!”
