Tamra Judge continues to shade Vicki Gunvalson on social media, after it was revealed that Vicki repeated some hotly debated gossip about the sexuality of her husband, Eddie Judge.
Tamra grabbed the timing of the reunion taping to dig at Vicki, working to heighten the tension before the long sit-down had even begun. Tamra posted two consecutive photos on Instagram last week, with Vicki’s longtime stylist, Julius Michael. The pics might be harmless, but the manipulative motive was an obvious one — to get under Tamra’s number one target’s skin.
Tamra captioned the first photo, “Thank you @juliusmichael1 for flying out to LA to do my hair for the reunion ❤️Love you my friend ❤️ @eddiejudge and I will see Monday in NYC.”
A second photo swiftly followed, captioned, “Best picture of the day @juliusmichael1 is like my kids, they can rarely take a pic without making a funny face.”
Michael boasts a long list of Housewives clients his Instagram account jammed with photos of familiar Bravo faces. He also posted a pre-reunion photo with Tamra, Shannon Beador, and psychic, Scott Cruz — the pro who pointed to Vicki’s ex, Brooks Ayers’ shady cancer game. The caption hinted at “reunion insight,” inadvertently giving the impression that Julius was co-signing to Tamra’s revenge game against Vicki.
Not true, according to a source close to the celeb stylist, who came forward to clarify Michael’s intention.
“Julius feels badly about how the post was interpreted,” dished the snitch. “He was excited to meet Scott, but told me that no one was even talking about the reunion. Julius loves Vicki, and hates that Vicki and Tamra are at such a broken place.”
Tamra continues to passive-aggressively malign Vicki, as a real-time follow-up to her complete meltdown, after the rumor was whispered on the show. Tamra reposted one of Eddie’s Instagram pics after her post-episode Watch What Happens Live appearance — and added her own touch of nasty.
“#Repost @eddiejudge with@bravoandy love you @bravoandy but my balls are for Tamra… wait, I think she has my balls in her purse!!!!! #ilovemywife#vickiisaliar #killallcancerisascam,” the post captions. Tamra polluted the post, clearly shading the Bravo veteran with two additional hasthtags — #vickiisaliar and #killallcancerisascam.
Tamra said during Monday’s episode that Eddie wasn’t concerned about the rumor, and that he easily shrugged off the drama. However, Tamra’s venom towards Vicki since Kelly Dodd echoed the gossip, speaks volumes.
Another OC player, Heather Dubrow, hinted to social media telling the story, as the show winds down.
