Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge: My Husband Eddie Is Not Gay

He only plays for one team. Tamra Judge defended husband Eddie Judge’s sexuality during a Monday, October 24, appearance on Watch What Happens Live after she accused costar Vicki Gunvalson of spreading gay rumors about her man.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star, 49, insisted that Eddie is straight when a caller asked about his recently questioned romantic preferences.

“Vicki put that out there,” Tamra shot back before the caller told her that Eddie “has a few tendencies that could be skewed as homosexual.”

This comment only seemed to infuriate the fitness enthusiast — who tied the knot with personal trainer Eddie on June 15, 2013, as seen in a televised wedding special — and she continued to stick up for her hubby and his attraction to women.

“Why [do you think he seems gay]?” she asked the caller. “Because he’s hot?!”

The caller, invoking more than a few tired stereotypes, then mentioned that since Eddie is “good-looking” and “in shape,” it might be a “red flag” that he has a thing for other men. During the telecast, the camera panned to Tamra’s insanely fit spouse, who seemed unbothered as he smiled from the sidelines.

“Well, let’s just put it this way. Yes, me and Eddie are such trolls that I need to be married to someone that’s gay,” she clapped back sarcastically. “Why? Why? What’s the point of it?”

Show host Andy Cohen — who is openly gay — then went on to assure Eddie that if he were homosexual, the LGBT community “would be proud to have [him].”

He turned to Tamra and said, “From what I understand, you two can’t stop banging,” to which the blonde beauty replied: “Why is it that a hot guy can’t be straight? I don’t understand it.”

As viewers say on Monday night’s episode of RHOC, Tamra yelled in Gunvalson’s face after she caught wind that her frenemy allegedly told Bravo newbie Kelly Dodd that Eddie is into guys.

“I have been so nice to Vicki. I accepted her apology. I got everybody in this group to become friends with her again,” Tamra said of the Coto Insurance founder. “This is how I get paid back. She goes around and spreads rumors about my husband?”

For her part, Gunvalson denied that she ever said Eddie was gay.
