The tea was piping hot on Wednesday night’s (July 26) episode of Watch What Happens Live as Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge revealed the (alleged) real reason Jennifer Pedranti didn’t kick her boyfriend to the curb when he cheated on her.
While Pedranti is new to the group this season, the women have wasted no time questioning her relationship with Ryan Boyajian, whom they have slammed as the “town whore.” Only a few episodes ago, the yoga studio owner claimed her beau had never been faithful in a relationship before — and had even slept with another woman while they were “on a break.”
However, Judge, who was present during the drama, claimed that Pedranti had called her at the time saying he “cheated” on her. The returned Housewife also revealed that Boyajian had said he wanted to “fuck her” before he got with Pedranti — something he later denied ever saying.
As a result of the two women’s turbulent friendship — which was recently proven as we saw Judge aggressively throw a napkin in Pedranti’s face during a heated convo about Boyajian — a fan called into WWHL wondering why Judge had never brought this up to her longtime friend before they were on the show together.
“First of all, we did have many talks,” Judge said. “When Jenn 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. So I had conversations with her about it a lot.”
Emily Simpson, who appeared on the talk show alongside Judge, added, “That was some tea,” before host Andy Cohen pointed out that Pedranti “seems very in love” with Boyajian and that they’re “still together.”
“I just want better for her. She’s totally changed who she is, how she talks, how she acts, how she dresses for him. And he’s ….,” Judge began, before Simpson reluctantly chimed in, “He’s a douchebag.”
