"It was long-term," Shannon Beador said of her husband David's affair when Vicki Gunvalson asked her about the state of her once troubled marriage. "It went on for eight months … It was a lot of lies."
An emotional Beador admitted she befriended her husband's mistress: "I became friends with her while it was going on, which is demented and sick … How could someone sit down and say, 'How's it going with your marriage?' … One day, I'll be able to sit down and say it was the best thing that happened to our marriage because we wouldn't be here today … I've shared a lot with Vicki, and she's kept it a secret."
But she couldn't say the same thing about Tamra Judge.
Judge spilled the beans to Heather Dubrow after her drunken outing with Gunvalson and Beador last week, telling her Beador said she'd broken the "girl code" by being friends with Meghan King Edmonds when she had also been close with Jim Edmonds' ex-wife.
"It's the girl code," Dubrow said last week while whooping it up with the wives. "You don't hang out with the new wife when you're good friends with the other."

"Can I not have a fun night with you?" Beador asked Judge at dinner, referring to Judge's betrayal of her last year, after Dubrow confronted her.
"Heather didn't break any girl code," said Edmonds. "I like Tamra … She's like me ... just owns it."
"There's a pot-stirrer amongst us," Beador told Edmonds at dinner, when Judge pulled Gunvalson to the restroom to download. "Tamra stirs the pot."
Edmonds told Judge that when she returned, and all vacation hell broke loose.
"Let's play the telephone game," an incensed Beador told Edmonds. "Every single person can stir s---."
"Like you tonight," said Edmonds.
"I'm defending myself," said Beador.
"Storm," retorted Edmonds, poking fun at Beador's tendency to storm out during a fight. "Just walk out."
"I am a good person," said Beador. "I am not going to tolerate it."
"When things get too hot and heavy, she storms," said Edmonds.
"That was an exciting way to end our time in Moorea," deadpanned Dubrow.
