Tamra Barney Judge Slams Bethenny Frankel: "She's Begging for Attention Right Now"
Tam-ra! Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge (nee Barney) slammed Bethenny Frankel and her recent pajama controversy during a live appearance on Veria Living TV Network's The Juice on Tuesday, July 15.
"She's begging for attention right now," Judge remarked of Frankel's controversial Instagram post, in which she wore her 4-year-old daughter Bryn's pajamas. "If you do fit into your 4-year-old's clothes, don't talk about it!" Judge advised Frankel. "Just go eat!"
Indeed, 43-year-old Frankel—who told fans, "This is my daughter's nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we're ready to start sharing clothes yet?"—received flak from users who thought it was unacceptable for a mother to behave in such a manner.
Taking their feedback in stride, Frankel followed up with a snarky response the following day: "BREAKING NEWS! World Scandal," she tweeted Monday, July 14. "Former reality star, failed talk show host & cocktail maven jokes by wearing her kids' pjs! #itcantbetrue."
Frankel was not the only former Housewife to be targeted by Judge during her talk show appearance. While addressing rumors that she's leaving RHOC, the outspoken soon-to-be grandma urged viewers to "always consider the source."
"That rumor got started by a housewife that got fired," Judge said of former Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord. (McCord, who starred on the series for four seasons, predicted in an April 2014 blog post that Judge would not be asked to return to Housewives by producers. "Tamra Judge has very good reason to be worried at this point," McCord wrote, pointing out the OC star's frequent clashes.)
Judge, though, said she's not worried. "Let's face it, the big mouth never gets fired."
