Rumors are chasing Tamra Judge into the twelfth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County — and the reality star is trying to stop the runaway gossip in it’s tracks.
Tamra recently took to Facebook, posting a video — with one key detour. Tamra addressed the dirt already muddying her season — labeling the chatter a result of a “smear campaign.”
“I just want to talk about something I normally don’t talk about,” Tamra begins. “And that’s a lot of the crazy stories that are in the press right now…about my life, my husband, cheating rumors about me, things about my husband, that are absolutely zero credibility to them.”
Tamra labels the rumors a calculated effort — and claims that she knows exactly where they are coming from.
“There’s a smear campaign going on with the Judge family, and I know who it is, I’d rather not say who it is,” Tamra continues. “But it’s a constant smear campaign — I get a lot of emails and messages saying ‘is it true?’ — no, none of it’s true, it’s all a lie. People just like to hate, and unfortunately I’m the one they’re hating on right now, and it will all backfire in their face.”

A source exclusively told AllAboutTheTea.com that Tamra is having an affair with former 98 Degrees boy-bander, Jeff Timmons.

Sexuality rumors continue to swirl around her husband, Eddie Judge — and Tamra is expected to play victim as a clueless wife, on the upcoming season of the reality hit. Scalding hot tea was spilled during Vicki Gunvalson’s recent birthday party, and the reentry of Gretchen Rossi could be a game-changer, as Tamra works to scrape her way back into Vicki’s good graces.
Backstage whispers predict a rough season for Tamra — do you believe that the reality star is under attack — or simply reaping what she sows?
