Tamra Judge Revealed Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Called Shannon Beador
After exiting “RHOC” following the show’s fourteenth season, Judge has claimed that Beador stopped contacting her once she was no longer her co-star. However, while recording recent episodes of “Two Ts In A Pod,” the former “RHOC” star shared that she sympathized with the mother of three during the show’s sixteenth season.
In the May 6 “Two Ts In A Pod” episode, Judge revealed Arroyave recently called Beador. She also implied that the “RHOBH” alum reached out to the Real for Real founder on her behalf. The 54-year-old noted, however, that Beador “was not very happy that [Arroyave] called her.”
“Well, I don’t think she’s like mad,” clarified Judge. “She was like ‘well I want to do this one on one’ and basically a mutual friend of ours — I told him that ‘oh my god, we were drinking and we called a few people.’”
The former “RHOC” star reiterated that their mutual friend informed her that Beador wanted to only speak with her.
“I said, ‘listen, I can’t believe we did this, Teddi like called Shannon and texted her’ and he says, ‘yeah I know, [Beador] was like I would rather just talk to her one on one,’” shared Judge.
Arroyave asserted that she believed that Beador should “get some balls and call [Judge].” Judge then shared that they have been communicating through “some mutual friends” and suggested they intend to repair their friendship.
“We have a long road to go but we both have agreed that we miss each other’s friendships,” revealed Judge.
Tamra Judge Spoke About Her Friendship With Shannon Beador in April 2022
In an April 2022 episode of “Two Ts In A Pod,” Judge discussed her friendship with Beador while speaking to her guest, Braunwyn Windham-Burke. She revealed that she believed they could be able to reconnect. The Vena CBD co-founder then admitted she has spoken negatively about Beador “in the press,” but hoped they could have a reconciliation. She also stated that “being in a friendship with Shannon is kind of one-sided.”
“She is never going to ask you ‘how are you doing? How was your day? How is your husband? How are your kids?’ It just doesn’t enter her mind. And I’m the opposite,” asserted the 54-year-old.
Judge also claimed that Beador had hurt her, causing her to lash out. She explained that she “really needed” her former friend after she left “RHOC.” She also noted that she was dealing with family issues as her “ex-husband [Simon Barney] was diagnosed with cancer.” She shared that her “kids were in turmoil” as they were uncertain if their father’s health would take a turn for the worse. The former Bravo personality also suggested she faced difficulty after “the pandemic hit.”
“I just felt for the first time ever, I really needed my friend and she wasn’t there. It was more of pain and a hurt, it wasn’t like an oh my god, I was so mad that you got the show and I didn’t,” said the mother of four.
