Tamra Judge Dubs 'RHOC' Co-Star Ryan Boyajian 'Disgusting' Over MLB Gambling Scandal

Tamra doesn't mince her words when discussing Ryan's alleged connection to the scheme along with Dodgers player Shohei Ohtani's former interpreter on her 'Two T's in a Pod' podcast.

AceShowbiz - Tamra Judge has something to say about her "The Real Housewives of Orange County" co-star Ryan Boyajian's alleged million-dollar MLB gambling scandal. Tamra didn't mince her words when discussing the matter on her iHeartRadio "Two T's in a Pod" podcast.

"I didn't sign up for 'Mob Wives'. I signed up for 'The Real Housewives of Orange County'," so Tamra said in the Monday, May 13 episode of the podcast. "This is dark. This is heavy. This is disgusting."

The 56-year-old added that the scandal would be documented in season 18 of the Bravo reality TV show. "You guys, it's bad," the Bravo star continued. "I'm not the one that actually brought it up on the show … originally."

It was reported earlier this month that Ryan, who is engaged to Jennifer Pedranti, was allegedly involved in the theft scheme along with Dodgers player Shohei Ohtani's former interpreter. According to ESPN, Ryan received a wire transfer from interpreter Ippei Mizuhara to settle his gambling debts.

Ippei agreed to confess to stealing around $17 million from Ohtani's bank account and used the money to pay off his gambling debts and was told by his illegal bookmaker that he could wire money to "Associate 1," who was said to be Ryan.

"Mizuhara regularly logged into Ohtani's bank account and initiated wire transfers from the account to the bookmaker and his associates as payments for gambling debts," United States Attorney Martin Estrada's office wrote in a statement. "For example, on June 20, 2023, Mizuhara accessed the account without Ohtani's permission and transferred $500,000 to one of the bookmaker's associates."

The interpreter pleaded guilty to two federal charges, per the U.S. Attorney's office. He can face more than 30 years in prison under his plea deal.

Through his attorney Steven Katzman, Ryan denied his connection to the gambling scandal. "Because there is an active investigation and Ryan is working with the authorities, he can't confirm or deny what is going on," Steven told ESPN. "He is not a bookmaker or a sub-bookie."
