Rachel Fuda Reacts to Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp Shading Her Husband

11 comments

Rachel Fuda is responding to the recent shade Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp threw at her husband, John Fuda, for getting too involved in the drama on RHONJ.

Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp recently recapped episode two of RHONJ on their podcast, Two T’s in a Pod. The two got shady, saying that John Fuda needs his own tagline after getting too involved in the drama among the Housewives.

“Rachel tells Jen Fessler that it’s unfathomable how she wants to be Teresa’s friend. Jen says the entire group says crappy ugly things. John Fuda says he won’t associate with anybody who associates with Teresa. And then Jen Fessler thinks Teresa fights dirty. When you go low, she goes lower,” Teddi said. “Do you agree with Jen that everybody in the group says equally crappy things? Not just Teresa.”

“They all say crappy things,” Tamra replied. “It’s the nature of the show, but, obviously, there’s some people that go dirtier than others, but we all talk about each other.”

The two longtime Bravo stars then dragged John for bringing it back to Jen Fessler’s sitdown with Teresa in episode two.

“John Fuda giving people an ultimatum about Teresa, like, at this point, give this man a tagline,” Teddi said.

Tamra agreed, noting that John is “not really in a position” to give ultimatums to anyone in the RHONJ cast.

“He’s definitely getting a little bit too involved,” she continued. “I think he’s going to learn his lesson after the season not to get so involved. I’m sure he is getting a lot of s—t about that.”

Now, in a new interview with Us Weekly, Rachel Fuda defends her husband for getting so involved in the drama among the women of RHONJ.

Rachel Fuda's husband John Fuda claims that he is Teresa Giudice's only storyline on RHONJ.

“Everyone can sit here and be like, ‘Oh, John’s the eighth housewife,’ whatever. Say what you want. But if you put the shoe on the other foot, what would you do different? You’re going to defend yourself,” Rachel said before alleging that the allegations about John’s past were “contrived” by “the other side” — before the season began to create a storyline.

“As far as John having a tagline, what do you want the guy to do? They couldn’t find anything on me, so they went after him. Literally give him a tagline.”

When asked what John’s RHONJ tagline would be, Rachel Fuda said: “There’s only one king of New Jersey and his name’s John Fuda.”

She then addressed why the men of RHONJ get so involved in the drama on the show.

“In my specific instance, my husband, in my opinion, didn’t really have a choice. We walked into Jen Fessler’s party and that was it. I didn’t say anything except that [Teresa’s husband] Louie wasn’t a gentleman, and I didn’t even say those words, I just alluded to it,” Rachel Fuda said. “So I mean, it’s very specific to our franchise and I feel like it wouldn’t work on any other show, but I just think we all enjoy being around each other. The guys really kumbaya and everyone has a good time together.”

The 33-year-old then claimed that Teresa has a long history of going after other castmates’ husbands, citing her history with Melissa and Joe Gorga as well as Jackie Goldschneider’s husband.

“But there’s also this — I want to say ulterior motive — of copy and paste behavior of, ‘Let’s go after Joe. Let’s go after Evan. Let’s go after John.’ There’s a pattern here,” Rachel Fuda said. “And this is a very toxic behavior.”

RHONJ airs on Sundays at 8 pm on Bravo.
