RHOC - Tamra Judge Gets Called Out By Groupon After She Claims Cut Fitness Doesn't Use The Discount Service
During part one of the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion, Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd got into it when Judge made fun of Dodd’s Positive beverage company, saying the products were in discount stores. This led to Dodd going after Judge’s “losing” Cut Fitness gym, claiming that she uses Groupon to get customers.
“We don’t do Groupon,” claimed Judge. “We do not have Groupon.”
However, when Dodd asked her Twitter followers what they thought of part one of the RHOC reunion, Groupon called out Judge with proof that Cut Fitness has used the discount service in the past.
“We’re just gonna leave this right here…” replied the Groupon Twitter account, along with a screenshot of a Cut Fitness Groupon offer for 77 percent off of classes.
Judge immediately joined the thread, asking how old the ad was. She added that she will be contacting Groupon offices shortly. Dodd also chimed into the thread, telling Judge to leave Groupon alone because it’s the holiday season. Then, the newly-engaged Dodd decided to throw some shade at Judge.
“Is backpedaling a workout routine they offer at Cut Fitness? When you stop lying so frequently in situations where it’s easy to expose the truth, you won’t have to always scramble to change your story…. must be exhausting. 😔 happy holidays to you & your fam ♥️” Dodd tweeted.
Judge then went on a Twitter rant, posting more than 20 tweets about her business, and she thanked Groupon for the free advertising because she claimed that Cut Fitness hadn’t used Groupon in “many many years.”
Judge also insisted she wasn’t lying about using Groupon, explaining that they used the service years ago when they first opened. She claimed that the ad wasn’t active, and it was “very unprofessional” of Groupon to tweet otherwise. She also asked at one point if Groupon’s tweet was legal, but it absolutely is because Groupon ads are public information.
Judge also responded to Dodd’s attacks, saying that Dodd didn’t understand even though she had explained it. Judge stuck to her guns, saying that they hadn’t used Groupon in years. She also threatened Dodd with a lawsuit if she didn’t stop attacking her business.
Emily Simpson also got involved with the thread and praised Groupon, writing that her respect and admiration for the company just skyrocketed.
Part two of the Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14 reunion airs Monday, December 23rd on Bravo.
