Here's What Tanya Sam's Fiancé Paul Judge Has to Say About the "Cookie Lady"

The Real Housewives of Atlanta fiancé addresses those cheating allegations.

By Laura Rosenfeld

Rumors that Tanya Sam's fiancé, Paul Judge, has been unfaithful to her are the latest to rock The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And things only got more scandalous when the source of the rumors, a woman named Shiana, aka the "Cookie Lady," stopped by the ladies' lunch to tell Tanya about her interactions with Paul one night out at a bar in the February 9 episode of RHOA.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

When word got back to Paul that the "Cookie Lady" had been sprinkling some gossip about him, he was none too pleased, according to Tanya. "He was mad. He was really, really mad," she said during The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 After Show. "When we first saw it, he was livid like, 'That's a lie!'"

During the episode, the "Cookie Lady" explained that she was out one night with her sister and two other gentlemen. She claimed that Paul waved at her for her attention and followed her to the restroom area where they started talking. They continued their conversation at the bar where Paul allegedly told her that he was single and that he worked in real estate. The conversation eventually came to an end.

Tanya said during the RHOA After Show that Paul had been acting as one of his friend's wingmen that night. "So the situation was there was a bunch of guys from [Paul's alma mater] Morehouse. They were out at a bar, and there were two ladies at the end of the bar," she explained in the above clip. "And so, there's six guys there like, 'Hey, ladies, do you want some drinks?'"

She then said that Paul asked the women to stay and hang out with some of the single guys in the group. "So I wasn't mad at him," Tanya said. "I saw exactly how that could happen." 

Tanya isn't going to let anyone or anything get in the way of her and Paul's happiness. "Paul and I sleep together 365 days a year. I am grateful we're in the same city. We're not in some long-distance relationship," she said. "Like, that's solid."
