Two weeks after being accused of faking her Christian conversion to secure her spot on the hit reality TV show “Real Housewives of Orange County,” star Tamra Judge has hit back at her critics insisting that her conversion is genuine and that it has completely changed her life.
“What’s so funny is there’s so many fake stories that go out there in the press,” Judge, who accepted Christ as her savior roughly one month ago, told The Christian Post in a recent phone interview. “I think in the past six months I’ve felt like a new person, but it’s just one of those things where I wanted to make it right with the Lord and I knew the journey I was on. I’m not saying like, I’m perfect and I’m not saying I’m at church every single Sunday. I try to go every Sunday, I’m joining a Bible study … as you know, your mindset changes [after being baptized].”
Judge’s emotional baptism will air on the hit Bravo TV show that’s in its 10th season in coming months as part of the season finale. Her life-changing decision to be born again came during what she said was a very difficult time in her life, after a woman at her Cut Fitness gym invited her to go to church.
“I was never baptized as a kid, and I was never brought up in church and I haven’t raised my kids in the church, it was something that was very foreign to me,” she shared. “When I was going through everything I was going through, I was at work one day and this woman came up to me at my studio — she goes ‘would you like to go to church with me?’ and I said ‘yes.'”
She continued: “So I took my kids to church and [my husband] Eddie went with me and my life just kind of changed, it was very powerful. And I think that with religion and accepting the Lord into your life and your heart, it’s a personal journey.”
The “RHOC” follows the drama-filled lives of six Orange County women, whose pampered lifestyles and endless bickering captivates viewers [2.7 million during its peak last season] every year.
