Jennifer Pedranti Makes a Surprising Reveal About Tamra: "I See Her for Who She Is”

See where Jennifer Pedranti and Tamra Judge really stand in a first look at the RHOC Season 18 premiere.

By Allison Crist

Tamra Judge and Jennifer Pedranti were close friends when the latter Real Housewives of Orange County cast member first joined the franchise during Season 17, but things quickly got complicated between the two (largely due to Jennifer's relationship with Ryan Boyajian). They ultimately reconciled at the reunion, but was the pair able to keep the peace heading into Season 18?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

In a first look at the season premiere, the answer appears to be yes. 

Take it from Jennifer herself. As she explains in a confessional interview in the above RHOC preview, "Tamra and I, I think we're moving past everything that happened between us. I see her for who she is." 

With that in mind, Jennifer adds, "So, keeping it light and easy is exactly where I want to keep it with Tamra."

The two can even be seen hanging out in the sneak peek as they squeeze in a quick workout with Emily Simpson. Eventually, Jennifer brings up yet another 'Wife: Shannon Storms Beador

"I saw Shannon. She came to the studio the other day," Jennifer adds, referring to the yoga studio she owns. "She took a class."

From there, Jennifer explains that while Shannon may not be in the best place with some of their other castmates, she's embracing a friendship with her.  

"I have a soft spot for Shannon," she says in a confessional. "When you feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you and you are literally at rock bottom, you need a friend." 

The RHOC cameras then flash to Jennifer and Shannon mid-hangout one week prior as the latter is opening up about the aftermath of her DUI. "I'm doing my best to try and turn a positive into this," Shannon explains. "I went to that wellness program for a month, and I'm continuing on with a psychiatrist and a therapist there."

"You're doing the work," Jennifer replies.

Stay tuned for more when RHOC Season 18 premieres with a supersized episode on Thursday, July 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo. Episodes will be available to stream the next day on Peacock.
