Bethenny Frankel called out Tamra Judge for dissing Teresa Giudice as the most ‘overrated Housewife’ in the Bravo franchise, and she shared her theory on why Tamra made the statement.

Tamra, who just returned to the Real Housewives of Orange County after being ‘on pause,’ began feuding with Teresa after Tamra made negative comments about Teresa’s husband, Luis Ruelas.

On her ReWives podcast, Bethenny reacted to Tamra’s diss, declaring that Teresa and Luis are “accurately rated,” not “overrated.”

“Teresa provides so much drama,” Bethenny continued, via AllAboutTRH. “The reason I don’t like that Tamra did that on Watch What Happens Live – and I love Tamra – is because she’s in a current argument.”

Bethenny went on, “She’s in a current argument, so someone’s like, ‘Who’s the most overrated housewife?’ She’s like, ‘Teresa’ because she currently doesn’t like her.”

“They’re currently in a squabble,” the star explained. “But, you don’t say something that’s not true during a squabble.”

“Overrated housewife?!?!” Bethenny asked out loud, “There are so many boring, filler housewives that present and do nothing. Teresa is not one of them.”

The drama between Teresa and Tamra reportedly began when Tamra compared Luis to Brooks AyersVicki Gunvalson’s ex-boyfriend – who allegedly lied about having cancer.

Unsurprisingly, this angered Teresa, who later dissed Tamra for interviewing Caroline Manzo following the alum’s allegations against Tamra’s friend Brandi Glanville.

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
