Tamra Judge criticized Jennifer Pedranti’s decision to end her 18-year marriage to date a “player” on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
During a group lunch, Judge decided to bring up how Pedranti’s boyfriend, Ryan Boyajian, met another woman while they were on a brief break, but she stayed with him.
“You ruined your whole family!” » The judge shouted at his friend over and over again.
Jennifer – who shares five children with ex-husband Will Pedranti – immediately became emotional and responded: “I didn’t ruin my family!” How dare you, fucking king! »
“You left for a player!” You’re not the only person he fucked at my gym,” Judge claimed, referring to Jennifer and Boyajian’s encounter at his old gym, CUT Fitness.
Earlier in the conversation, the judge also accused Boyajian of being unfaithful to Jennifer while they were fully “together.”
Jennifer then confirmed that he had previously slept with another woman, but refused to say whether it happened during their aforementioned break or if he cheated.
“If you need my bullshit put out there to make you more relevant, good for you,” Jennifer shouted at her friend. “They got screwed. Do you know what it looks like? It’s like a royal knife in my heart.

The judge, however, justified her actions by saying that she did not want her friend “to be hurt.”
“I don’t like you with him,” the judge then admitted. “I’m sorry and it’s hard for me to hold back.”
However, several other cast members came to Jennifer’s defense saying it was her decision to stay with him.
“I think at the end of the day, Jenn knows he’s a player and she chooses to stay with him,” Gina Kirschenheiter added.
Heather Dubrow also added that Jennifer “doesn’t want to sit here and break up her relationship for the 14th time.”
The conversation ended with the judge telling Jennifer that he just wanted her to be “happy.” However, Jennifer just didn’t believe it.
During a confessional, Jennifer then admitted that she was aware of a text message her boyfriend sent to a woman that allegedly read: “Get naked in my bed.”
“I knew everything about it,” Jennifer explained. “I forgave Ryan, because I love Ryan. I’m not here trying to protect Ryan, but why do I keep talking about this? I know we were on a break, but it hurts, it’s painful, it sucks, and it’s Ryan’s job to admit what he did – I didn’t do that.
“You can’t sit there and be my friend and tell me I ruined my family,” Jennifer continued. “I can hear and take a difficult conversation, but not in the way you did – that’s not the way a friend talks or acts.”
Despite the cheating accusations and relationship rumblings, Jennifer and Boyajian still seem to be going strong.
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
