Tamra Judge’s latest feud with fallen “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi isn’t sitting well with Rossi’s fiancé, Slade Smiley.

In response to Judge’s recent Instagram rant about Rossi's comment that her former co-star was more worried about being famous than being a mother, Smiley, 44, slammed the current “RHOC” lead for her parenting skills Thursday and predicted that she will be fired from the hit Bravo reality-TV series.

Earlier this month, Rossi, 35, repeated allegations against Judge, 46, (formerly Barney) about her reported lack of parenting skills to Life & Style magazine in response to her custody battle over children Sydney, 15; Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8, with her ex-husband, Simon Barney. “She cares more about ‘RHOC’ than taking care of her kids,” Rossi told the tabloid following charges from Barney that his reality star ex was negligent with their children’s nutrition and hygiene.

Following the interview’s release, Judge stormed social media to fire back at Rossi, who was let go from the series in September. “This nasty b---h will do anything to stay relevant, GO AWAY! You know nothing about my life or my kids,” Judge posted to Instagram May 7. “I pray that one day you have the happiness and beautiful children I have,” Judge said. “I pray that your children are not hurt by divorce and their names are not drug [sic] through the mud by people like you.”

In defense of his fiancée, Smiley said her statements were well-founded. “I have never seen Tamra with her kids,” Smiley told Radar Online. “Tamra is more interested in fame than being a parent. I’ve been to plenty of events that were not filmed, and she was never with her kids.”

According to Smiley, following her recent actions, Judge’s seven-year run on the reality program will most likely be coming to an end. “Tamra WILL be fired in the future,” Smiley told the gossip site. “She is trashy, lying, cheating adulterer that will be leaving.”

As usual, Judge didn’t take Smiley’s comment laying down, labeling his accusations as “lies” on Twitter Thursday night. “#moveonslimmy,” Judge posted.  

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo. Smiley and Rossi can be seen next on the reality series “Marriage Boot Camp,” premiering May 30 at 9 p.m. EDT on WE-TV.
