Tamra Judge and shannon beador have become great friends over the past couple of months. Both ladies feel betrayed by their former friend and current co-star, Vicki Gunvalson, as drama erupted on the previous season "The Real Housewives of orange county." Tamra learned recently that Vicki had been involved in spreading rumors about her husband, Eddie, possibly being gay. In addition, Vicki had fueled the rumor that David Beador had possibly beaten his wife Shannon a few years ago. This was a devastating accusation for Shannon, as she now had to explain this to her three daughters.

Tamra and Shannon have remained great friends over the past couple of months and Judge has even been a huge support in Beador’s weight-loss journey. When Shannon returned to "The Real Housewives of Orange County," fans were curious as to why Shannon had gained 40 pounds. She revealed that she couldn't stop eating and that she was devastated over the accusations that her husband had supposedly beat her up. No matter how much she kept denying it, the comments clearly affected her.

Rumor about Eddie continues to surface

Tamra was determined to help her friend lose the weight-gain during the off-season and she did everything she could to support her friend with exercise and healthy eating. So when Tamra shared a photo of them having dinner together along with their husbands, one could expect fans to comment on how great their friendship had been over the past couple of months.

But it sounds like fans decided to talk about the rumor that Eddie was gay. This is a rumor that has yet to be addressed on this season of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" but it is something that will surface shortly. One can imagine that Vicki will be blamed for this rumor, as she has been blamed for many things once before.

In addition to this, Tamra is not happy about this rumor and one can imagine she will do just about anything to support her husband through this period.

Fan comes to Eddie’s defense

It is unknown where the rumor about Eddie being gay initially came from. Of course, it seems like rumors can start very suddenly over something as simple as two guys hanging out.

If two husbands are laughing with one another at a "Real Housewives of Orange County" party, fans will sometimes make up stories or rumors that they are hooking up or that they're gay. Of course, this seems completely ridiculous and ludicrous, but this is how some of these rumors get started.

It doesn't help that Tamra Judge’s former friend, Vicki Gunvalson, is partaking in the rumor and enjoys hearing stories about how her former friend's husband is possibly gay. One can imagine she finds it humorous because he is indeed married to Tamra.

"Because why would Tamra marry a gay man and why would Eddie marry a woman if he was gay?" one person questioned on her Instagram post

But as many fans point out on her Instagram page, why would he and Tamra get married if he was gay? Wouldn't he be pursuing a relationship with a man?
