During this week’s episode, Emily went to Tamra and her husband, Eddie Judge‘s gym, CUT Fitness, to talk about health and exercise. While there, Eddie had Emily get on a scale that not only measured her weight but her body fat. According to the scale, Emily’s body fat percentage put her in the obese range.
This shocked fans because Emily looks far from obese. After the episode, a fan called out Tamra and Eddie and argued that Emily isn’t obese.
“Emily is NOT obese at 34% body fat. Shame on Tamra and Eddie!!!” one fan wrote on Twitter. She then listed out a range of body fat percentages for a woman Emily’s age.
Emily thanked the fan. However, this move rubbed Tamra the wrong way. Tamra didn’t appreciate the tweet and made it known.
“You are unbelievable. We try to help you, and I’ve seen multiple tweet of yours that are not nice. Eddie spent over an hour with you talking health & nutrition. No one made you get on the scale! You love playing victim, and it’s getting old!!!” Tamra wrote in response to Emily’s “Thank you” tweet.
However, Emily seemed to be baffled by Tamra’s freakout. Emily insisted she only said “Thank you” in response to the fan saying she wasn’t obese and nothing more.
“I simply said ‘thank you’ to someone who said I wasn’t ‘obese.’ That’s all. If you want to read more into that, that’s on you,” Emily explained.
“That’s not all you’ve said!” Tamra fired back.
Tamra then shut down claims she was being mean to Emily.
“Yes, so mean of us to try and help her. How about a thank you?” Tamra tweeted.
Meanwhile, Emily says the only negative comments she made about the gym scene were aimed at production.
“My comments were strictly related t production,” Emily clarified. “I asked them not to film the scale. That is all I have referred to.”
Following all of the back and forth drama, Emily revealed that Tamra blocked her on Twitter.
