There’s a major war of words going down between two of the most iconic Bravolebs in the history of the network.
Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp are firing back at Teresa Giudice after the Real Housewives of New Jersey OG said they were “all about the drama” and “tearing people down just to get clicks” while appearing on the Up and Adam! Podcast earlier this month.
The mom of four dubbed Tamra and Teddi “sh-t starters” and admitted that she wasn’t happy that the Real Housewives of Orange County star compared her husband, Louie Ruelas, to Vicki Gunvalson‘s alleged cancer scamming ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers.
“I forgave her, but I don’t like anybody talking crap about my man,” Teresa explained, adding that she has forgiven Tamra but unfollowed her on Instagram because she “did get mad” at Tamra for her comments about Louie.
According to Tamra, Teresa is getting worked up over nothing and needs to take a chill pill. Hmm…Tamra, imagine if someone was comparing your husband Eddie to an alleged cancer-scamming low-life, you’d be pissed too. Plus, I remember you getting all worked up when Vicki and a few other OC Housewives went after Eddie on the show. Pot meet kettle.
“Take a chill pill, calm your t***, Teresa, I don’t know what to tell you, we’re not going after you, we’re just recapping the show. It’s just that simple, and yes, she went out there and said like, ‘We’re not positive — we don’t lift women up.’ We’re not a ‘lift women up’ type of podcast, let’s just put it out there right now, I’m not calling you names, we’re not going after your appearance, we’re not going after your character. We’re just recapping what we see on the show as a viewer. That’s it. Don’t take it personal,” Tamra said.
She went on to call Teresa a hypocrite as she is known for stirring up drama on RHONJ; Tamra notes that it is a Housewife’s job to do just that, whether on or off the show.
“First of all, is [Teresa] not a sh-t starter herself, like isn’t that the nature of being on Housewives shows? But I don’t really feel like we did anything to warrant that, like for her to get so pissed off,” Tamra explained.
As for Teddi, she thinks Teresa was triggered by Tamra’s comments comparing Louie to Brooks Ayers, noting that Teresa doesn’t want anyone popping her “love bubble.”
“When things are not good in my life when things are triggering because they are partially true, I’m upset easier,” the RHOBH alum said.
Despite Teresa’s anger, the RHOC star made it clear that she is not losing any sleep over the one-sided beef.
“If she wants to hate me for whatever reasons, whatever,” Tamra quipped in conclusion.
RHONJ airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
Thoughts on this all? Sound off below!
The feud between Tamra Judge, Teddi Mellencamp, and Teresa Giudice began after Teresa made comments on the Up and Adam! Podcast, stating that Tamra and Teddi were “all about the drama” and “tearing people down just to get clicks.” She also expressed her displeasure with Tamra comparing her husband, Louie Ruelas, to Vicki Gunvalson’s ex-boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, who was involved in an alleged cancer scam.
Tamra and Teddi addressed Teresa’s comments on their Two T’s in a Pod podcast episode titled “Sh-t Stirring Twots.” Tamra advised Teresa to take a chill pill and emphasized that they were simply recapping the show as viewers, not attacking Teresa personally. She also pointed out that Teresa herself has a history of stirring up drama on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Teresa was triggered by Tamra’s comments comparing Louie to Brooks Ayers, as she didn’t want anyone to criticize or question her relationship. Teddi suggested that when something partially true is brought up, it can easily upset someone. However, Tamra made it clear that she is not bothered by Teresa’s anger and stated that if Teresa wants to hate her for any reason, she is fine with it.
