Tamra Judge Says Jen Stayed With "Cheating" Ryan for Role on RHOC, Reveals Vicki's Reaction to Emily Friendship, and Says Vicki is "More Fun" Than Shannon, Plus Shades Teresa

Tamra Judge dropped a bomb about Jennifer Pedranti‘s relationship with her boyfriend Ryan Boyajian on Wednesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.

As the Real Housewives of Orange County cast member also spoke of Vicki Gunvalson‘s reaction to her friendship with Emily Simpson and confirmed she prefers to “whoop it up” with Vicki over Shannon Beador, Tamra claimed Jennifer caught Ryan cheating, revealed why she stayed with him, and threw some shade at Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.

On the July 26 episode of WWHL, Tamra was asked if she’d like to be a “tres amiga” of Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan.

“Yes! I’m loving Crappie Lake. It is so good,” she replied.

Then, after being asked the same question about Teresa and Jennifer Aydin, Tamra gave a nod to her ongoing drama with Teresa.

“I’m not in a war with Teresa; I actually like Teresa. But she said some things,” Tamra explained, shadily adding that while she “really [likes] her,” she only “kind of” respects her.

During the episode, Tamra was joined by Emily Simpson, who she played a game of “BFF Test” with, agreeing that Vicki is “more fun to whoop it up with” than Shannon and that Kelly Dodd hit below the “belt more than Tamra.”

The RHOC castmates also agreed that Gina Kirschenheiter will get engaged before Jennifer and that there’s “no chance” that Jennifer actually believes Ryan’s “limp d-ck” pic was meant only for her.

Later, on the WWHL: After Show, Tamra was asked how Vicki feels about her friendship with Emily.

“She hasn’t said anything about that,” Tamra revealed as Emily joked that Vicki “doesn’t know who [she is].”

“No, I’m joking. Actually, when I filmed with Vicki this season, she actually texted me that evening and said, ’Thank you so much for welcoming me and being so kind.’ And I said, ‘I love you, Queen Victoria,’” Emily shared.

“Vicki has calmed down. She really has,” Tamra noted.

Another fan wanted to know Emily’s thoughts about Heather Dubrow telling Gina that she shouldn’t tell Travis about her feelings about ex-husband Matt Kirschenheiter‘s cheating.

“I disagree because I know Gina very well and I know Travis very well and I know Travis is her person … So I feel like any time she’s upset, she should always be able to go to him, no matter what,” Emily stated. “You can’t hide things from your partner.”

Also on the live broadcast, Tamra was asked why she waited two years to bring up the Ryan drama if she was truly concerned for Jennifer. And after confirming that the two of them had “many talks” about the matter, Tamra said Ryan previously cheated on Jennifer.

“When Jen was going through the casting process is when she actually found out that Ryan was cheating on her and she chose to stay with him because she was afraid she wouldn’t get cast on the show,” Tamra claimed. “I had conversations with her about it a lot … I just want better for her. She’s totally changed who she is, how she talks, how she acts, how she dresses for him.”

“He’s a douchebag,” Emily added.

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