“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Jennifer Pedranti addressed her issues with her castmate, Tamra Judge, in the July 28 episode of Hollywood Life’s “Pay Attention, Puh-Lease!” podcast, as reported by Hollywood Life. While recording the “Pay Attention, Puh-Lease!” episode, Pedranti, who began starring on RHOC in its seventeenth season, reacted to the comments Judge made regarding her relationship with her boyfriend, Ryan Boyajian, during her July 27 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” In the “Watch What Happens Live” interview, Judge referenced her claim that Boyajian was unfaithful during his relationship with Pedranti. She alleged Pedranti decided to continue being in her relationship because she wanted to be an RHOC star.
“When Jenn was going through the casting process is when she actually found out that Ryan was cheating on her and she chose to stay with him because she was afraid she wouldn’t get cast on the show,” said Judge.
In the “Pay Attention, Puh-Lease!” episode, Pedranti stated that Judge was not being truthful about her relationship with Boyajian or how she became an RHOC cast member.
“Can we talk about that — I mean, honestly, I’m in a relationship that I’m just being cheated on and just ride it out and just hope I get cast on the show? I mean that doesn’t even make sense,” said Pedranti.
The mother of five explained that she found the situation frustrating because she was in contact with Judge during her casting process for RHOC. She claimed that the Vena CBD co-founder gave her tips on how to better her chance of joining the show’s cast.
“Sometimes I want to say do you actually believe this? Do you believe everything you’re saying? Do you remember the conversations we actually had in real life? It’s hard. No, I was not in a cheating relationship and just hoping to God I’d get casted. Not at all,” said Pedranti.
The RHOC personality also referenced that she and Judge were close friends before they began co-starring on the Bravo franchise together. The 46-year-old stated that she is upset that she and Judge have had a falling out after the production of RHOC season 17.
“You ask me today and I’m going to tell you that was my friend,” stated Pedranti. “I would’ve stood by her. My friends matter to me. I don’t know. I’m like, ‘Was any of our friendship ever real for her? Did I ever matter? Is everything a moving piece for Tamra? Has she been in this world too long?’ And so, the things Tamra says hurt because it was real for me. She was real for me.”

However, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, who left the show following season 15, was cast instead. Pedranti wrote that she was surprised when RHOC producers approached her to star in the Bravo series’ seventeenth season.
“I got a call years later saying, ‘hi Jenn, we are looking for the cast of season 17 and would like to talk to you.’ I remember feeling flattered but expressing I was in the middle of a divorce,” wrote the mother of five. “That I was dating, [my ex-husband] Will was dating someone and I was no longer a ‘housewife’ .. We talked for 30 more [minutes] and a Zoom call was set up! The rest is history!!!!”
