Tamra Judge isn’t one to bite her tongue, so it’s not surprising she has a lot to say about the Real Housewives of New Jersey season 12 reunion on the May 5th episode of her and Teddi Mellencamp’s Two T’s in a Pod podcast.
The former Housewives dished on all the reunion drama, admitting that they were overwhelmed by it all.
“Holy sh-tballs,” Tamra said of the reunion before admitting that the drama was “a lot.”
“There was so much screaming,” Tamra confessed. “I couldn’t imagine how [Andy Cohen]… how he reacts. It was too much, too much talking all at once.”
One moment in particular that shocked both women was when Teresa Giudice suggested that Melissa Gorga was a bad sister-in-law. According to Teresa, who was pregnant when Joe and Melissa tied the knot, Melissa should have postponed her wedding until after Teresa gave birth.
“I had to rewind that,” Tamra admitted.
She continued, “It’s bizarre to me. And then for her to say, ‘I was in your wedding, yes, but I was pregnant,’ like they should have pushed back the wedding, I’m like, ‘You are a selfish person, you really are, by making that comment.’ It’s not about you, Teresa. It was about your brother and your sister-in-law that day.”
The duo also noted that it’s pretty clear Andy Cohen isn’t a fan of Jennifer Aydin. Tamra and Teddi added that it’s clear Andy favors Teresa.
Teddi explained, “You can tell that Teresa’s been a housewife for a long time and how much love Andy has for her because he gives her so much grace compared to like, how you would see him maybe talk to… a [Noella Bergener].”
“You can tell he likes Teresa. I don’t think he loves Jen,” she added.
Tamra quipped, “I don’t think I love Jen right now.”
She elaborated: “Jen, just for the record, you’re only as good as this week’s episode. She kept butting in. She tried to be confrontational about everything, and it reminded me of [Emily Simpson].”
When it comes to the RHONJ cast moving forward for season 13, Teddi and Tamra think the show might not be able to move forward with Teresa as too many cast members are afraid of her, which creates inauthentic behavior.
“That’s not good… If you have a cast member on the show that everybody’s afraid of. If you can’t be yourself, like, I don’t think Melissa can be herself. I don’t feel like Dolores can be herself because they’re afraid of Teresa,” Tamra noted.
“We’re at the reunion now. You’ve witnessed your behavior. How are you doubling down?” Teddi questions.
“It doesn’t make any sense,” Tamra said in agreement.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in late 2022 or early 2023.
