Peggy Sulahian The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Former OC Housewife Peggy Sulahian Responds to Tamra Judge’s Comment About ‘Wives Needing Subtitles!

Tamra Judge is in hot water from comments regarding former OC housewife Peggy Sulahian and her accent. Tamra’s comments weren’t well-received as mocking someone’s second language simply isn’t cool, and to prove that Peggy is now responding.

Peggy may have only appeared on the show for one season; however, she did make an impact and not just the 100th housewife in Bravo history. Peggy was the first Armenian-American housewife and also one of the few ‘wives to have learned English as a second language. Despite many not finding Peggy a good fit for the franchise, it certainly wasn’t due to her accent. During an appearance on Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef, Tamra commented on Peggy stating:

“Anyone you have to subtitle should not be on the show. That’s what I feel. If you can’t understand what they’re saying, that’s difficult. I think she was nice, but I just don’t think she was good TV. It does not mean you’re a horrible person, it just takes a certain personality.”

Now speaking to Reality Blurb,  Peggy is firing back regarding Tamra’s accent, stating:

“It certainly does take a ‘certain’ personality to provoke discord. As an immigrant to this country, I learned the language, graduated university, raised a family, and have contributed to my community. I don’t believe her inability to understand me has anything to do with my accent, which I am proud of. Tamra, if you have a problem, pick up your phone and call me. Let’s discuss.”

Bravo has been making an initiative to be more all-inclusive so not only were Tamra’s comments not cool but also extremely bad timing. I’m sure she regrets saying it; however, I do commend Peggy for responding in a classy manner.

Thoughts on Tamra’s comments? Do you think they were inappropriate? Thoughts on Peggy’s response?
