The last night in Ireland may have been the most difficult for the Real Housewives of Orange County. Though Kelly Dodd apologized, Tamra Judge didn’t want to hear it.
“The aftermath of Kelly in Ireland was difficult for me… I knew in time I would forgive her, I just wasn’t ready to move on.”
Tamra thinks Kelly is embarrassing her own daughter by her bad behavior. Can’t argue with that one.
“For a woman that is constantly making public scenes and crying about how she doesn’t want her daughter to hear about it, I was in shock that she would go there.”
Tamra is adamant that she didn’t hit Kelly.
“…in Kelly‘s delusional blog last week she wrote, “Tamra is a very strong woman and she hit me hard”. You can ask everyone there if I hit her and they will tell you NO. Just another one of her lies.”
Tamra claims she was never threatening toward Kelly.
“I had to laugh at how Kelly said she was “joking” when she yelled at me to keep walking and how I came back as if I wanted to fight… This girl can twist any situation. We have watched Kelly verbally abusive [sic] everyone. She has admitted she has anger issues yet doesn’t try to better herself or stop drinking.”
Meghan Edmonds and Kelly took a break from the group and went looking for Meghan’s Irish family while the other women milked cows. But they all met up on the farm for dinner.
“Kelly finally apologized and told me I was a good mom and a very forgiving person. It was nice of her to do that, but I was in no mood to talk about it. I had been crying all night and I needed to move on.”
Vicki Gunvalson lightened the mood by flashing her wonky nips at everyone. Including Heather Dubrow’s husband, Terry.
“Vicki had been showing us her boobs the whole trip. I was pretty shocked when she pulled her blouse open at the dinner table in front of the staff, funny at the time, but pretty classless.”
The final dinner in Ireland was thick with tension. Shannon Beador kept plying Kelly with tequila, but Tamra insists it was harmless fun.
“Kelly had this victim attitude, often muttering words under her breath acting like everyone was out to get her… Shannon wanted to have a fun night…and we had to head to the airport at 3 AM… Kelly had told us that tequila is an upper, so Shannon started ordering shots for everyone…doubles. Trying to change the mood.”
And for the record, Shannon was ordering tequila for everyone.
“I was not drinking and Shannon kept ordering shots for me too, but I didn’t drink them. I didn’t accuse Shannon of trying to get me drunk, I’m an adult, I’m responsible for what I put in my mouth.”
Vicki suspected Tamra was the mastermind pushing the tequila.
“I thought it was pretty crappy of Vicki to say, “Tamra could be behind trying to get Kelly drunk”… It just goes to show no matter how forgiving and nice I am to Vicki she always stabs me in the back…”
Later, things got really ugly. Vicki and Kelly tried to persuade Tamra to go to the bar with them.
“After dinner I went back to my room to pack. 20 minutes later Kelly and Vicki came knocking on my door all dressed up and ready to go out. I did not want to go out with Kelly and chance her getting drunk and acting badly, I did not answer the door.”
Next, they asked Shannon.
“They went across the hall to Shannon’s room (I could see through the peep hole), Shannon asked Kelly why all the sudden did she want to go out and drink after she was refusing to at dinner? Kelly started getting loud in the hall and Shannon closed her door.”
Tamra, Shannon, and Heather decided to go to the pub by themselves. They texted Vicki and persuaded her to join them — without Kelly.
“We were having so much fun. Then Vicki started telling me that Kelly had been talking badly about me for months… I’ve been so supportive of her and stuck up for her knowing she was not in a good place in her marriage. The more Vicki told me the more I was feeling like a fool…”
Tamra decided to drunkenly text Kelly and send a selfie of her and Vicki having a good time. These ladies are nothing if not juvenile. When they headed back to their hotel rooms, Kelly was waiting.
“When she got off the elevator I started taking to Kelly and she started crying telling me she had never said a bad thing about me… You could see Vicki felt really uncomfortable… By the way Vicki ran off, I believe she was lying… Seems like Vicki doesn’t want me to be friends with Kelly. I wonder why?”
Once the ladies got on the shuttle bus and headed to the airport, Kelly started talking about everyone to Meghan.
“Does she forget how she’s attacked everyone on that bus? Shannon sat there while Kelly called her a c*** at dinner, I think she took it pretty well. Then she started screaming at everyone, I thought we resolved this in the hallway.”
Kelly got even angrier, lashing out. By this time, the women had had enough.
“Heather asked Kelly to “let it go”…but no! Calling Shannon a drunk, telling me I’m not nice, and we attacked her in the hallway… I just asked her about what Vicki had told me in a calm voice. Then she loses her s***, screaming SHUT UP, yet she was the only one screaming. Telling Shannon to go shave her face was so immature, she really does take things down to low level.”
And Vicki sat quietly, refusing to get involved.
“For nine years I have been a loyal friend to Vicki and all she did was talk behind my back. I told the girls that after forgiving Vicki for the cancer lie I would be done with her if I found out she was talking behind my back again. Well guess what…you’ll have to wait until next week to hear what Vicki had been telling Kelly about everyone.”
So, was Kelly ganged up on or did her anger push the other women away?
