Tamra Judge is back at it again. The former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star has been throwing shade at multiple current and past cast members, and this time her target was Peggy Sulahian, who spent just one season on the Bravo reality show. She was on Season 12 of “RHOC” and was born in Kuwait to Armenian parents, so she spoke with an accent.
While appearing on the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast, Judge said that she doesn’t think anyone who requires subtitles should be on the show.
“Anyone you have to subtitle should not be on the show. That’s what I feel,” Judge said. “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.”
Many fans took to social media to blast Judge for her comments, with several joking that it was her who needed subtitles after having too many drinks. Others claimed she was always just jealous of Sulahian.
During the interview, Judge also went after current cast member Emily Simpson.
“I think Emily [is] dead weight on the cast,” she said. “Two years, usually your first year you get a break, but I don’t know. I think Gina [Kirschenheiter] speaks her mind, she’ll be honest and speak her mind. She’s not gonna play these little games and she’s not afraid of anybody. Emily was always really nice to our face, but then she’d get in her confessionals and say things. It’s like, well, wait a minute … a good housewife says it to your face, not just behind a camera.”
Like with her comments about Sulahain, Judge claims that just because she doesn’t think Simpson makes for good television doesn’t mean she is a bad person.
Judge does, whoever, seem to have a more personal vendetta against Kelly Dodd. She has called for Dodd to be fired from the show after racist remarks she made in 2016 resurfaced recently. Dodd was caught on camera by TMZ saying that she doesn’t like black men.
Judge called the video “disgusting” and said there should be “zero tolerance” by Bravo for any behavior like that. She called Dodd a “huge liability” for the network.
Judge went on to say that while she is finished with “RHOC,” she would be open to potentially joining the cast of “Real Housewives of New York.”
