Jeana Keough Claims Vicki Gunvalson And Tamra Judge Sold Her Out For More Money!

Jeana Keough made a stunning revelation about Real Housewives of Orange County exit. According to the real estate mogul, her former cast members Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge sold her out for more money, which resulted in her being fired from the Bravo hit reality series.

Keough claims that Gunvalson and Judge worked out a deal with Bravo where they would earn more money as long as Keough was let go from RHOC.

“I wasn’t ready to leave, but it was a tough negotiation that year,” she said on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast, according to Cheat Sheet. “We were going for the most money we could get and Vicki, Tamra, and I had decided to work with one attorney. So it was kind of like the friends deal.”

Keough reveals she attended a funeral for a 16-year-old neighbor, therefore she couldn’t be present at the negotiations However, she claims she trusted her friends to have her back.

“So I told the girls, whatever you decide, I think we should hold off at this number,” she told podcast  host David Yontef. “You guys decide and give them my answer too. Cause if we didn’t answer by 5:00, we weren’t on the show. So some agent had approached them and say, ‘Hey, you will each get more money if you get rid of Jeana.'”

“That’s pretty much what happened,” she explained. “I didn’t respond by 5:00 thinking my friends were doing it. So I was off the show. And I thought, ‘You know what? I don’t really want to be around people like that.’ That’s just to think you’re going to get more money. They didn’t get any more money than what we’re being offered and what we’d already negotiated too. But maybe they did in the years to come after. I don’t know.” She adds that she only heard that Gunvalson and Judge were offered more money if Keough was fired. “I wasn’t in the room,” she said.

Despite what went down, Keough explains why remained friendly with Gunvalson and Judge. “I’m that way from the Midwest,” she said. “I think life goes on. Life’s short. If it wasn’t meant for me to be on that show, it wasn’t meant for me to be on.”

“It wasn’t like it was doing anything for my career,” she added. “It was upsetting to my kids. My two sons had gotten beat up and broken their noses. And they tried to portray Kara as a spoiled brat. She’s anything but that she’s a driven credibly, talented person. So it was fine. It was time.”
