Tamra Judge was featured on Wednesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, where she took aim at Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Teresa Giudice and her husband, Luis Ruelas.
While joined by Vanderpump Rules‘ Lala Kent in the Clubhouse, the Real Housewives of Orange County star slammed Teresa as the “most overrated Housewife” before offering an update on her relationship with daughter Sidney Barney, sharing who she bonded with most amid season 17, and answering a question about the most annoying thing about her podcast co-host, Teddi Mellencamp.
“Nothing. I think she’s amazing,” Tamra stated of Teddi on the June 7 episode of WWHL.
Next, a virtual fan wanted to know if she was surprised by Shannon Beador‘s November 2022 split from John Janssen.
“If you would’ve asked me that two years ago, I would’ve been not shocked at all but filming the season, there was a four-month stretch where I was coming back into the group and being around him and they seemed very in love and she did not tell me at all that things were bad,” Tamra replied.
Then, after teasing an upcoming moment on RHOC in which she and Shannon “sit down in her backyard and she tells me a few things,” Tamra clarified that she “had no idea [John] was going to dump [Shannon].”
“Did I say that out loud? Yeah, he dumped her,” she added.
In addition to making amends with Shannon in the new season, Tamra found herself bonding with an unexpected castmate: Emily Simpson.
“I think I gave them all hell but at the end of the day Shannon and I reconnected and the big shocker was Emily,” she revealed.
Also surprising for viewers of WWHL to learn on Wednesday night was that Tamra and her oldest daughter are in a better place after a years-long estrangement.
“[We’re] good,” Tamra revealed. “I actually saw her at Sophia’s graduation and things were nice.”
Also on the show, Tamra was asked who she’s annoyed most on Two Ts in a Pod.
“Who haven’t we annoyed the most?” she wondered. “Um, probably Teresa about the Luis stuff cuz there’s so much to talk about Luis. So I think that she’s gotten really annoyed with that, but other than that, I really try not to annoy people.”
“Teddi, on the other hand, she likes, that’s her goal is to annoy,” Tamra joked.
But Lala didn’t think Tamra was off-base with her criticisms of Luis.
“You know what I’ve learned, like, when you’re dating someone, when the streets are talking, you better listen. [I’m] nervous,” the Pump Rules star added.
And Tamra, who, like Lala, is Team Melissa Gorga, agreed, “[I’m] scared.”
Then, in a final diss of the evening, Tamra named “Teresa” as the “most overrated Housewife of all time.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
