Tamra Judge accused Shannon Beador of having a drinking problem on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
“F–k you and your f–king drinking, you alcoholic,” Judge screamed at her former best friend during an intense argument on a boat trip.
Beador remained calm and told her that she was “becoming unhinged.”
“You can say whatever you want, Shannon, you’re a f–king liar, and you’re a drunk,” Judge snapped as she appeared to be intoxicated herself.
Beador, 59, addressed the irony of the situation as she imitated Judge’s slurring in a confessional.
“I’m not talking that way — you are, Tamra,” Beador said.
“I’d like to ask you a question — where’s the girl that cried to me at Jennifer’s yoga retreat saying that you missed me as a friend?” Beador calmly asked, referring to their first emotional conversation in two years on last week’s episode.
The “Two Ts in a Pod” co-host fired back that she “missed what [they] had,” but that was before their falling out in 2021.
Prior to the explosive blow-up, the former best friends sat down to hash out their issues, but it only resulted in Judge, 55, pointing out Beador’s drinking habits.
“I remember when you and David [Beador’s ex-husband] were still married and you said, ‘David wants me to stop drinking,’ I said, ‘Then stop drinking,'” Judge said during their one-on-one lunch.
The claim immediately hit a nerve with Shannon, who firmly told Judge that she was “crossing a line.”
Tamra then went home to recap the sit-down with her husband, Eddie Judge, and the topic of Shannon’s drinking came up again.
“The only good thing out of the relationship was David, and I don’t even know how he lasted so long — she drinks way too much,” Eddie said.
Tamra found it “funny” that her husband said that since Shannon claimed her “drunken stupidness” only happened during her divorce. But her former bestie argued she had those same habits with her ex-boyfriend, John Janssen, as well.

“After that it was, ‘John left me in New York, John left me at a restaurant,’ it’s always something. Always,” Tamra said.
The pair’s falling-out ultimately came to a head on the boat when Tamra accused Shannon of not being there for her after she was a good friend for years.
“I gave so much for so many years,” Tamra emotionally screamed to co-stars Emily Simpson and Heather Dubrow. “I f–king needed her, she wasn’t f–king there, and that’s the end of the story, so you know what? She can f–k a duck!”
A preview for next week’s episode showed a tearful Tamra expressing remorse for her actions and apologizing from the “deepest part of my heart.”
Shannon and Tamra were inseparable for years until 2021 when they began going after each other in the press. Tamra claimed Shannon “ghosted” her, while the latter said her co-star’s public comments were “crushing.”
