“You know what, I took her back this year, accepted her apology – well, her half-assed apology – forgave the past and tried to move on, only to get burned again,” said Judge, 48. “She was behind my back with a machete this time.”
“Well, I’ve given up on trying to keep away from Brooks,” Judge said. “I now think that they’re soul mates. They’re a match made in heaven.”
Of Gunvalson’s tendencies to return to Ayers despite the drama, Judge said she couldn’t understand it.
“You know what, there were a lot of years where I wanted somebody in my life, but you don’t want a douchebag. Like if somebody’s douchey, ew, that’s a turnoff,” she said. “It’s not attractive to me. I can’t buy that.”
Added Judge, “You hang out with dogs, you get fleas. Maybe she needs a flea collar.”
As for whether her relationship with Gunvalson could be salvaged, Judge made it pretty clear things didn’t look too promising.
“That’s where I’m at – I’m burned,” she said. “I said: ‘You know what, one more thing. One more thing, and I’m done. I’m done.’ ”
“It actually hurts my feelings because we’ve been friends off and on for 10 years, so we’ve gone through a lot together,” Judge said. “We’ve gone through our kids getting married … health concerns and divorces and all that stuff, so, we have a lot of history.”

But Judge says Gunvalson has gotten “caught up in the show.”
“She just doesn’t know what her reality is anymore,” Judge added. “When you create a storyline, that’s when it’s time for you to go. So the O.G. might need to G.O.”
Judge also opened up about the scary four-wheeler dune buggy accident she and a few of the other women got into in April, which will be covered on the show. (“Hey, can I not make good TV or what?” joked the star, who was driving at the time.)
“Vicki was airlifted [because the local hospital] doesn’t do trauma, so anybody that gets into an accident is airlifted,” Judge explained. “And it’s $70,000 to get airlifted, so people that go there, make sure you get the insurance for $50 – you get airlifted for free.”
According to Judge, “it was just a freak accident.”
“We went up this dune, and I don’t know what was on the other side, but I just remember Heather [Dubrow] who was in the front, who was holding on, and in this very calm voice she goes: ‘We are going roll,’ ” Judge recalled. “And I don’t even know what happened, but we went up over my front left tire, hit the sand and we just rolled.”
Also in the dune buggy at the time of the accident was RHOC rookie Kelly Dodd, whom Judge said is “really lucky” she didn’t suffer a head injury because she hadn’t fastened her helmet at the time.
“Well, maybe it would have knocked some sense into her,” Judge added with a laugh.

“Whacked,” said Judge. “It’s unbelievable. Chemical crazy.”
