It looks like there might be room for Real Housewives of Orange County stars Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge to “cheer up” together in the future.
During a recent interview, Judge revealed the current status of her friendship with Beador. The two became very close while starring together in The Real Housewives of Orange County, but their friendship ended in a major feud after Judge was fired from the franchise in 2020. Judge had expressed that she felt that Beador didn’t want to stop being her friend because she was no longer on the show.
However, it looks like things could be slowly improving for the two.
“We had some text messages going back and forth,” Judge revealed in an interview with OK! Magazine released on July 14th. “I think that feeling of anger left me. It’s more like I miss her now and we were really good friends for a long time. I felt like I was being fired for not being on the show.”
Judge was a cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County from seasons 3 to 14.
While appearing on Us Weekly’s Getting Real With the Housewives podcast in December 2021, Beador admitted she wouldn’t “enjoy” having Judge and Vicki Gunvalson back in the franchise anytime soon.
“I don’t think I would enjoy it because I feel like I’m in a happy place right now, and I think you’re going to see that this season,” Beador told the outlet at the time. “There are a lot of things that are still said about me, so it’s hard because I was so close to both of them. I still choose not to get involved and speak up, especially in public. We were friends and sadly we are not anymore.”
Beador added: “Not many kind words have been said about me. It’s a shame.”
When Judge fell out with Beador after their 2020 exit, so did Vicki Gunvalson. However, during a conversation with Entertainment Tonight in early July, Gunvalson admitted that she and Beador have been in touch for the past few months.
“We had a threesome texting, Shannon, Tamra and I, and we were talking about getting together,” Gunvason told Entertainment Tonight. “I Facetimed Shannon last night. … She told me she loves me, she misses me, she needs me back on the show … blah, blah, blah. It was great, and then she called me afterwards. She says “I really love you” when she gets home. I said, ‘OK, I love you too, but where have the last two years been? Because I wasn’t on the show, didn’t you love me?’ She says, ‘I have…’”
Tamra was also present at the interview and said of Beador: “There’s a lot to talk about, I think. Above all, our feelings were hurt. It’s a tough place to get fired from a show you’ve been at for so long… and then one of his good friends didn’t get back to him.”
