Tamra Judge Reveals the Dramatic Split from Former ‘Tres Amigas’ Costars, Teases RHOC Season 18 Drama

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA – The friendship between reality TV stars Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson, and Shannon Beador has come to an end, much to Judge’s disappointment. Judge revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that she has decided to back out of their partnership known as the “Tres Amigas” for reasons that will be explained in the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

Judge stated that the situation is complex and difficult to explain fully, but assured fans that she did not do anything to harm either Gunvalson or Beador. She also mentioned that she will be preparing to start production for season 18 of the show in the coming weeks and that the drama between the former friends will be a central topic.

The fallout between Judge, Beador, and Gunvalson began in November 2023 after their joint comedy show, “Tres Amigas.” According to Judge, the disagreement occurred when she declined an offer to do another show due to her busy schedule. Gunvalson expressed her displeasure through social media a couple of months later.

Judge believes that Gunvalson and Beador have been gossiping about her behind her back, but the accusations have not been addressed. She expressed her desire to surround herself with supportive and honest friends and cited her close friendship with Teddi Mellencamp as an example.

In addition to the “Tres Amigas” drama, Judge and Mellencamp cohost the “Two T’s in a Pod” podcast and plan to headline a joint live show later in the year. Gunvalson commented on the announcement, but Judge clarified that the show was a one-time event and not intended to replace their previous show.

As the new season of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” approaches, fans can expect the details of the fallout between Judge, Gunvalson, and Beador to be revealed. The end of the “Tres Amigas” friendship marks a significant shift in the dynamics of the show.
