Jennifer Pedranti fired back at Tamra Judge after her Real Housewives of Orange County castmate and one-time friend shaded her on an episode of SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live.
In a post shared to her Instagram Story, Jennifer, 46, slammed Tamra, 56, for her childish and “bully behavior” as she called her a “mean girl” and denied being a “#victim,” which Tamra told Jeff Lewis, 53, she was while teasing the upcoming reunion.
“I think me and Jen, the new girl, are gonna have some words,” Tamra teased, as seen in a clip shared by a RHOC fan page on Instagram.
Then, after Jeff replied, saying, “I like Jen,” Tamra sarcastically agreed and said she is “sweet.”
“She’s doing a very good job playing the sweet card,” Tamra clarified. “Her yoga training comes in very well. She comes off very sweet. Hashtag victim. I think she’s great for the show but I’ve known her for quite a few years so… I know. We just need to straighten some things out.”
Continuing on, Tamra said she feels Jennifer hasn’t been “forthright” or “honest” about her life on the show and is “protecting” certain aspects from the cameras.
“Let’s face it, he’s not the most standup guy,” she noted, giving a nod to Jennifer’s boyfriend, Ryan Boyajian, who she previously accused of hitting on her and sending “d*ck pics” to other women.
Also on the radio show, after Teddi Mellencamp, 42, suggested Ryan actually looked better than Shannon Beador‘s now-ex-boyfriend, John Janssen, on a recent episode of RHOC, saying John had an odd look in his eyes, Tamra agreed.
“Well that was easy,” she noted.
A short time later, after getting word of Tamra’s diss, Jennifer responded on her Instagram Story.
“I don’t have to pretend to be a ”kind/sweet’ person. I have zero interest in mean girl and bully BS… especially at this age! I wouldn’t allow my 12-year-old daughter to behave this way. No #victim here,” she declared with Kevin Gates‘ “Stop Lyin’” playing in the background.
As RHOC fans may have seen, this isn’t the first time Tamra labeled Jennifer as a “victim.” Last week, following the latest episode of the show, Tamra took to the comments section of an Instagram post that detailed the episode, which saw Jennifer accusing Tamra of bringing up Gina Kirschenheiter‘s DUI amid a conversation about Shannon’s “CPS” diss.
“Stop playing victim [Jennifer],” Tamra wrote. “‘Your friend’ leaned over to tell you ‘she got a DUI’ while Shannon said CPS and didn’t even hear it. CPS was never called and I knew nothing about it.”
