Tamra Judge says Jen Shah is a ‘special type of idiot’ for joining RHOSLC

Tamra Judge might not be an official housewife anymore but that’s never stopped her from piping up with her opinions on what the ladies are up to. According to Page Six, Tamra recently had a few choice words for Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah on her recent arrest and subsequent allegations.

Tamra recently appeared on “Realitea with Derek Z” and shared her two cents on the entire situation, going so far as to call Jen an “idiot” for becoming a real housewife while she had something so scandalous brewing.

“If you are doing illegal stuff, you’re an idiot, and if you’re doing illegal stuff and you go on a reality show, you’re a special type of idiot. Why go on reality TV if you’re doing criminal acts? You’re just asking for it.”

It’s hard to argue with that logic! If the allegations against Jen are true (she’s currently alleging they’re false and has entered a not guilty plea against the fraud charges) then it certainly is weird that she thought going on national television was a good idea.

Tamra’s comments echo a similar sentiment made by her former Real Housewives of Orange County co-star Heather Dubrow, who also said it’s not a good idea to go on reality TV if you’ve got skeletons in your closet.

Does Tamra Judge think Jen Shah is guilty?

Despite what it sounds like, Tamra isn’t making any legitimate accusations of her own against Jen. She added that she thinks we should all let the justice system do its job and believe Jen is “innocent until proven guilty.”

For those not in the loop, Jen was recently arrested alongside her assistant Stuart Smith (who also appeared on Real Housewives of Salt Lake City) for reportedly scamming numerous elderly victims via a significant telemarketing scam.

The trial is set for October and Bravo is reportedly planning to continue filming the second season and capture as much of the legal drama as they possibly can. Basically, the new season of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is going to be JUIIICCY!

Considering Bravo captured quite a bit of everything that happened with Teresa and Joe Giudice on Real Housewives of New Jersey, I’m expecting the Jen stuff to be just, if not more, dramatic.
