Their feud boiled over on Twitter after the episode aired with Kelly Dodd firing the first shot at Tamra for boasting about her new $2 million home in one of the OC’s most prestigious gated communities, Coto de Caza.
When a fan tweeted, “2,000,000 is not ‘rich’ for that area,” Kelly jumped right in and replied, “You can’t buy a tear down in Newport Beach for $2m. Coto is a nicer Temecula.” Note, “Temecula” is a city in Southern California, surrounded by hillside vineyards and several golf courses.
The comment did not sit well with Tamra, who fired back, “Do you own a house? I own 2.”
A Kelly fan attacked Tamra’s parenting: “You own 2 homes…but at what cost? Not having contact with your daughter? Kelly would never choose #RHOC over Jolie.” And Kelly asserted, “I would never!!!”
Things took an ugly turn when the fight dissolved into who’s richer — Kelly tweeted, “Living in Coto you’re rich!! lmfao who says that?? Coto is in the sticks!” To which Tamra savagely clapped back, “I pay for my houses. I don’t date old men for money.”
Kelly, 43, then tried to age-shame Tamra, 51 — although they’re only 8 years apart.
“And my boyfriend is your age!!” Kelly tweeted her co-star. “So I guess you’re saying your old!! Lmfao.” Tamra simply replied, “Yup I’m old.”
Replying to one of Kelly’s since-deleted tweets, Tamra Judge said, “Let’s compare income? If it bothers you that much.”
In another now-deleted tweet, Kelly replied, “Take ur own cbd & relax. Michael [Dodd] was the president of many public companies & I was left with a windfall not a salary u rely on soley…who did you marry? A spin instructor? When you time runs out on the show #youarenext let’s see if your husband sticks around!! #sugarmama.”
“What is Kelly’s real Job?” a fan asked Tamra Judge on her “let’s compare income” tweet.
“I think we all know the answer to that,” Tamra fired back.
“Don’t bring Eddie into it,” someone asked of Kelly on the same thread. “The poor guy has a heart condition. You two cat fight all you want but leave the men out of it.”
“She brought my boyfriend into it,” Kelly smugly responded.
