Tamra Judge has been involved with major drama with Kelly Dodd on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but that’s not the only controversy the housewife is facing as her son Ryan Vieth has problems of his own.
All the turmoil started when a text exchange between Vieth and the mother of his daughter leaked online where he made life-threatening remarks that sent chills down the spine of everyone that read the messages.

After the second episode of RHOC aired on Bravo, Sarah Rodriguez, Tamra Judge’s son ex-girlfriend, posted a series of text messages on her Instagram profile that he allegedly sent her. The messages were shared by Instagram account A Beautiful Snarky Mess but have now been deleted.
“And she acts like a little b just like you, Vieth replied.
“So you can both get fed. You’re trash. Fk off,” Vieth continued.
“Now im [sic] going to talk to whoever the f I want,” he said.
But the most horrendous message was when Ryan texted: “Go kill yourself.”
In another screenshot, Ryan allegedly said, “this one is for you,” with a picture of a bullet.
What Did Tamra Judge Say About The Nasty Texts?
Following the controversial messages being leaked online, Judge appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she was asked to give her thoughts. The O.C. housewives completely shut down her son’s ex-girlfriend and didn’t address the content of the texts.
“I don’t know, but Sarah tends to go on social media and it post all this stuff and delete it. So, I’m not buying into it,” she said.
“I have all her text messages from that day as well,” Rodriguez commented on an Instagram post found by Beautiful Snarky Mess. “She saw them before I called the police. I asked for her help,” she added on another reply.
Ryan Vieth Quits ‘RHOC’
With the boiling feud playing out in public on social media, Ryan took to his Instagram Stories to address his followers that there are “two sides to every story” and that there’s a lot about his life that the viewers don’t know about.
“Let me tell everybody something, there’s always two sides to every story. I keep my mouth shut for my daughters sake and because I like to keep my life as private as I can. I don’t play the media for sympathy. For everyone that wants to judge me for the chaos that was created yesterday please feel free to contact me. There’s a lot about our life that people don’t know and I’m here to set the record straight,” Ryan wrote on his Instagram Stories.
In the end, Ryan said that the money he gets for appearing on RHOC is not worth all the drama around his personal life.
“And for the Bravo fans, this season is my last. I will never be [a part] of this show, the money isn’t worth having all this chaos around my daughter. I am a very simple person and my life isn’t worth talking about,” he concluded.
