The FBI are currently looking into a scandal involving a topless photo that was taken in Dublin of Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson.

The Bureau is looking into allegations that Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge sent a topless photo of co-star Vicki Gunvalson to a 15-year-old girl, who later took to Twitter to share the photo, TMZ reported.

According to documents obtained by the website, a woman named Rosalie Coleman saw the naked image and then filed a complaint.

“Tamra Judge ... electronically sent a nude photograph of an acquaintance of hers (taken at a small private gathering) to a FIFTEEN YEAR OLD girl & asked her to distribute it online in an effort to humiliate & harass one Vicki Gunvalson,” the complaint reads.

According to TMZ, the FBI is currently looking into the incident but they have not yet opened a formal investigation.

Fans of RHOC will recall that the photo in question was taken when Gunvalson flashed her friends during a night out in Dublin when the cast of the show visited Ireland earlier in the year.

The group stayed at the luxurious Powerscourt Hotel in Enniskerry and filmed at The Old Storehouse / O'Flaherty's in Temple Bar and stocked up on plaid pillows at Avoca in Kilmacanogue.

The women also headed to Greystones to trace Meghan King Edmonds' Irish family tree. She discovered that her nineteenth-century ancestors were O'Tooles, with the forename Phelim regularly featuring, and all based in Greystones.

The group conducted their search by walking around the the town and tapping people on the shoulder before asking if their surname was O'Toole.

Fun night
