Tamra Judge Fights Back Tears Following Shannon Beador’s Drunk Driving Arrest: ‘I Feel Like I’m Going to Throw Up’

Tamra Judge choked up while discussing Shannon Beador’s arrest for drunk driving and hit-and-run.

“I feel like I’m going to throw up,” the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star said during Monday’s episode of “Two Ts in a Pod” with Teddi Mellencamp and Cynthia Bailey.

“At first I didn’t think it was true,” she continued. “I spoke to Shannon yesterday, she didn’t say a word to me, nothing.”

The judge also recalled that Beador was “extremely quiet” during a conference call for their show “Tres Amigas” with fellow Housewife Vicki Gunvalson.

“She said, ‘It’s been a rough few days,’ and that’s all she said to me,” Judge said of her struggling co-star.

“All I see is what’s in the press. I’m shaken.

Tamra Judge revealed she was left shaken after Shannon Beador’s arrest for drunk driving.

Judge, 56, admitted she initially thought the headlines were a lie after Beador, 59, failed to respond to text messages from other concerned ‘RHOC’ cast members .

“It’s life-changing,” she said. “I feel bad for her and I’m just glad no one was hurt.”

Meanwhile, Mellencamp, 42, took a strong stance on Beador’s situation, saying it’s better to pay $6 for an Uber than get behind the wheel after a few drinks.

“I feel like I’m going to throw up,” Judge said during Monday’s episode of “Two Ts in a Pod.”

“There is absolutely no reason in this day and age to drink and drive,” she said. “I’m not even going to have a drink and get in the car because you don’t know how an alcoholic drink is going to hit you.”

However, Bailey, 56, sent her love to the Real for Real founder and told her to “stay strong.”

Beador was arrested Saturday evening at 11:45 p.m. local time after allegedly hitting a Newport Beach, California, home with her car and fleeing the scene.
