After Judge Tamra announced his triumphant return to Real Housewives of Orange Countyfans wondered how – or if – she would reestablish her iconic friendship with Shannon Beador. The stars (who were once in a ‘Tres Amigas’ alliance with Vicki Gunvalson) fell in 2020 when Tamra was kicked out of the franchise, but recently they hinted they were on a better path.
At the end of August, however, a report from Well done housewives reported that Tamra dumped Shannon and their feud was reignited at the start of Season 17.
According to fan count Bravo Queens, a viewer captured Shannon and Tamra at the Nobu restaurant in Newport Beach. In the video, Bravo cameras were filming their exchange.
The stars met in the middle David Beadorfiling for divorce with his new wife, Lesley. David, who divorced Shannon after 17 years of marriage, reportedly signed a prenup with his second wife.
On September 14, Tamra posted a supportive comment on a photo of Shannon’s confessional look.
“Stunning,” wrote the podcast host, who included a starstruck emoji.
Tamra’s word of support – as well as their recent encounter – suggest the haters may have reconciled. Some fans, however, aren’t so convinced.
Bravo Queens pointed out that Shannon was “flashing her robot hands” in the video, meaning the scene “must be messy.”
But the fact that Tamra and Shannon met in the middle of the day, alone, may be a good sign. In the ‘Housewives’ universe, afternoon meetups are often an opportunity to clear your mind.
Were Shannon and Tamra re-establishing their friendship? Or have we witnessed another battle?
Many fans support the friendship and hope they can unite against the clique of Emily Simpson, Heather Dubrowand Gina Kirschenheiter.
Otherwise, viewers might get a repeat of season 16 – when the plot was repetitive and the ratings were abysmal.
