Tamra Judge defends husband Eddie Judge: He's not gay! Why is it that a hot guy can't be straight?

Tamra Judge is defending her husband Eddie Judge against speculation he's gay.
After The Real Housewives of Orange County star was shown accusing her co-star Vicki Gunvalson of spreading gay rumors about Eddie on Monday night's episode, Tamra was asked to address the situation on Watch What Happens Live by host Andy Cohen.
Tamra, 49, insisted that Eddie is straight when a caller named Alex asked about his recently-questioned sexual preferences.
"I don't talk about my sex life on national TV," Tamra noted. "Why do you want to know, Alex?"
"Because some people are saying Eddie might be a homosexual, which I think is great," Alex said.
"Who? Vicki? Who, Vicki?" pushed Tamra, who married Eddie in June 2013 on a televised wedding special.
When the caller explained there has also been gossip on Twitter, Tamra insisted, "Vicki put that out there."
Alex pointed out that Eddie "has a few tendencies that could be skewed as homosexual."
"Why [do you think he seems gay]?" Tamra asked the caller. "He's hot? Because he's hot?!"
The caller then threw out some stereotypes, including that Eddie -- a 43-year-old personal trainer -- is good looking and very in-shape for his age. Alex acknowledged there might be a "red flag," a comment which Eddie was then shown laughing at from in the audience.
"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," Tamra sniped sarcastically. "Why? Why? What's the point of it?"
Andy, who is openly gay, then told Tamra that if Eddie is homosexual, the LGBT community "would be proud to have [him]."
Andy turned to the reality TV star 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."
In The Real Housewives' latest episode, Tamra yelled at Vicki for allegedly telling co-star Kelly Dodd -- who is new to the series -- that Eddie digs men, according to Us Weekly.
"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 in the broadcast. "This is how I get paid back. She goes around and spreads rumors about my husband?"
Vicki, however, has denied rumors she ever called Eddie gay.
