Tamra Judge slammed Jennifer Pedranti’s decision to end her 18-year marriage to date a “player” on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
During a group lunch, Judge decided to bring up how Pedranti’s boyfriend, Ryan Boyajian, hooked up with another woman while they were on a brief break, but she stayed with him.
“You ruined your whole family!” Judge shouted at her on-again, off-again friend.
Jennifer – who shares five children with her ex-husband, Will Pedranti – instantly got emotional and screamed back, “I didn’t ruin my family! How f–king dare you!”
“You left for a player! You’re not the only person he f–ked at my gym,” Judge claimed, referring to Jennifer and Boyajian meeting at her former gym, CUT Fitness.
Earlier in the conversation, Judge had also accused Boyajian of being unfaithful to Jennifer while they were fully “together.”
Jennifer went on to confirm he had previously hooked up with another woman but refused to say if it happened during their aforementioned break or if he had cheated.
“If you need my s–t to air to make you more f–king relevant, good for f–king you,” Jennifer shouted at her friend. “They f–ked each other. Do you know what that’s like? It’s like a f–king knife in my heart.”

Judge, however, justified her actions by saying that she didn’t want her friend to “get hurt.”
“I don’t like you with him,” Judge then admitted. “I’m sorry and it’s hard for me to hold back.”
However, several of the other cast members came to Jennifer’s defense that it was her decision to stay with him.
“I think the bottom line is Jenn knows he’s a player, and she chooses to still be with him,” Gina Kirschenheiter chimed in.
Heather Dubrow also added that Jennifer “doesn’t wanna sit here and break down her relationship for the 14th time.”
The conversation ended with Judge telling Jennifer that she just wants her to be “happy.” However, Jennifer just wasn’t buying it.
During a confessional, Jennifer went on to admit that she knew about a text message her boyfriend sent to a woman that allegedly read, “Get naked in my bed.”
“I did know all about this,” Jennifer explained. “I forgave Ryan, because I love Ryan. I’m not sitting here trying to protect Ryan, but why do I have to keep talking about it? I know we were on a break, but it hurts, it’s painful, it sucked, and it’s Ryan’s job to own up to what he did — I didn’t do this.”
“You don’t get to sit there and be my friend and tell me I ruined my family,” Jennifer continued. “I can hear and take a hard conversation, but not the way you’ve done it — that is not the way a friend talks or acts.”
Despite the cheating accusations and relationship rumblings, Jennifer and Boyajian still appear to be going strong.
“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
