As the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member also spoke of Vicki Gunvalson‘s reaction to her friendship with Emily Simpson and confirmed she prefers to “whoop it up” with Vicki over Shannon Beador, Tamra claimed Jennifer caught Ryan cheating, revealed why she stayed with him, and threw some shade at Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.
“Yes! I’m loving Crappie Lake. It is so good,” she replied.
“I’m not in a war with Teresa; I actually like Teresa. But she said some things,” Tamra explained, shadily adding that while she “really [likes] her,” she only “kind of” respects her.
During the episode, Tamra was joined by Emily Simpson, who she played a game of “BFF Test” with, agreeing that Vicki is “more fun to whoop it up with” than Shannon and that Kelly Dodd hit below the “belt more than Tamra.”
“She hasn’t said anything about that,” Tamra revealed as Emily joked that Vicki “doesn’t know who [she is].”
“No, I’m joking. Actually, when I filmed with Vicki this season, she actually texted me that evening and said, ’Thank you so much for welcoming me and being so kind.’ And I said, ‘I love you, Queen Victoria,’” Emily shared.
“Vicki has calmed down. She really has,” Tamra noted.
“I disagree because I know Gina very well and I know Travis very well and I know Travis is her person … So I feel like any time she’s upset, she should always be able to go to him, no matter what,” Emily stated. “You can’t hide things from your partner.”
Also on the live broadcast, Tamra was asked why she waited two years to bring up the Ryan drama if she was truly concerned for Jennifer. And after confirming that the two of them had “many talks” about the matter, Tamra said Ryan previously cheated on Jennifer.
“When Jen was going through the casting process is when she actually found out that Ryan was cheating on her and she chose to stay with him because she was afraid she wouldn’t get cast on the show,” Tamra claimed. “I had conversations with her about it a lot … I just want better for her. She’s totally changed who she is, how she talks, how she acts, how she dresses for him.”
“He’s a douchebag,” Emily added.
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
