Tamra Judge was put in the hot seat during Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, when Andy Cohen read a terse email from Alexis Bellino criticizing Tamra following her baptism, which was featured during the Season 10 finale. After the reunion, Alexis headed to Instagram to explain that piece of correspondence, and her comments regarding Tamra's faith.
"I can see how my email might have come came across judgmental last night on RHOC, and I'm sorry about that, that was not my heart," she wrote. "@tamrajudge I'm sorry for sounding judgmental. Andy did not read this part of my email, 'I truly hope Tamra has found the Lord because He will be the most invaluable precious thing she will ever have in life.' THAT is my heart. God is a God of miracles, so I was hopeful and praying He would call the person who criticized me the most for my faith to His Kingdom one day. I was not trying to judge Tamra, I just wanted to make sure this was all coming from a good place, so please do not judge me. The Bible is clear that we are to hold each other accountable as sisters in Christ. I am imperfect and human, but I am steadfast in my faith and the Lord laid this conviction on my heart."
The buzzy email was also the subject of conversation when RHOC alums Jeana Keough, Lauri Peterson and Lynne Curtin stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Monday. "I just had lunch with Tamra. I was [at the baptism]. She's the same as she always was to me," Lynne said. "She's still the fun Tamra. And she's happy-go-lucky and you know... I gave her actually a cross sweatshirt for her birthday, or a T sweatshirt." Meanwhile Jeana called the email "a little harsh," adding, "Tamra's made great strides to try to become a better person this season. And most of the time she was successful. She's had a couple of trips but that happens." Watch the full moment, below.
