Tamra Judge Attacks “Real Housewives Of Orange County” Costars For Claiming Husband Is Gay

"They are nothing but homophobic bullies."

Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge has already ended a friendship with costar Vicki Gunvalson for spreading rumors that her husband Eddie is gay, but now she’s lashing out at her other cast mates after the accusations resurfaced on this week’s episode of the Bravo show.

In a scene from the most recent episode at Gunvalson’s birthday party, several housewives, including former cast member Gretchen Rossi, were discussing the rumors. Rossi asked party guest Ricky Santana if he thinks they were true, as he had a 10-year friendship with Tamra before a recent falling out, and he quickly tried to confirm the allegations.

“I saw him making out with a guy,” Santana said to the group of women. “Making out with tongue.”

Judge took to social media after the episode aired to slam her costars for participating in the gossip.

“How orchestrated and wrong was that? The worst acting I’ve ever seen,” she captioned under a photo of Eddie. “They are nothing but homophobic bullies that think it’s okay to try and out a straight man, hoping to humiliate him.”

“It’s not the 1920s and being gay is not something to be ashamed of or mocked,” she added. “You should all be ashamed of yourself.”

Rossi took to Instagram to respond to being called a homophobe, saying some of her best friends are part of the LGBT community and declaring that “no one was trying to out anyone.”

“Besides,” she wrote, “it’s only ’outing’ someone if he is actually gay, which she adamantly denies.”
