Tamra Judge and Jennifer Pedranti went into The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 17 as close friends, but now they’re not even on good terms, let alone pals. 

How to Watch

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

Both cast members have confirmed as much in recent weeks. Read on to hear exactly what they’ve said. 

Tamra Judge unfollowed Jennifer Pedranti on social media

Why? “Because she’s playing a little victim on her Instagram,” Tamra said on her podcast, which is co-hosted by The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. “When people talk about me, she instantly goes in there and does like this poor victim kind of answer.”

Teddi offered a different perspective, though. “I want to believe — I think probably because, you know, personal reasons — but I want to believe in the underdog,” she said.

Jennifer, meanwhile, shared her side of the story in an interview with The Wrap. Referencing the drama surrounding her relationship with her boyfriend, Jennifer said she was surprised by the shift in how it was being discussed with her onetime pal, sharing, "I’m like, what is happening right now?”

Jennifer also addressed the comment she made on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen about Tamra being “drastically different” in their friendship than she was in the past. “You have to understand, I didn’t know her like this,” Jennifer said about the change in their friendship once she was on the cast. “Everything took a turn after Watch What Happens Live. Tamra and I don’t even communicate on social media anymore.”

All in all, the relationship between Jennifer and Tamra remains “strained right now,” Jennifer said. “And I don’t know where it goes. I know it’s just an ebb and flow. You’re going to see it go up and down as the show continues.”

Jennifer Pedranti’s RHOC Friends

As for who Jennifer is currently friends with, she said she’s close with both Shannon Storms Beador and Taylor Armstrong. “I was surprised by Shannon Beador. All those years knowing Tamra, I just knew Shannon as this person that hurt my friend. And I was like, OK, I’m going to tread lightly with Shannon. But she has been awesome to me,” Jennifer explained. “She is funny and I have really gotten to enjoy getting to know her.”

Jennifer added of Taylor, “Taylor Armstrong could not be sweeter to me. We’re Oklahoma bonded.”
