Tamra Barney Judge continues to send mixed mothering messages on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

When it comes to anti-aging treatments, it seems to be a case of do as I say, not as I do for the 46-year-old fitness professional, as on Monday night’s episode, viewers saw Judge take her son Ryan Vieth for his health test results at the office of her anti-aging doctor, Lester Lee.

Last week, Vieth admitted that he had been taking human growth hormone and Dr. Lee suggested he get a blood test to see if it was harming his body.

But incredibly, as Tamra walked into the doctor’s office with Vieth, 28, she told the cameras of her own regimen and her husband Eddie Judge’s reaction: “Eddie really thinks that the Botox needs to go and the hormone treatment and all these things that make me look the way I do.

“He thinks they’re stupid: Well, I’ll show you stupid. I’ll stop doing them all and then you’ll see what you’re left with. It’s not pretty.”

The blonde beauty told Dr. Lee she was doing great on the testosterone derivative he’d prescribed.

Men get better with age; women at my age start going down, crash, burn,” Judge told the cameras.

While Judge was doing fine with her treatment, Dr. Lee told Vieth of his blood test, “You do have some significant abnormalities on here."

His HDL good fats were too low and his LDL bad fats were too high, meaning he was at risk for having a heart attack, Dr. Lee told Vieth.

Judge was horrified for her son and told the cameras, "He could die."

Vieth then admitted he’d already had random heart palpitations.

A tearful — and hypocritical? — Judge then said to the cameras, “I just want to shake him and say, 'What are you doing? Stop. You don’t need to inject your body with stuff to make yourself look better. Just be happy with who you are.'"

As Radar has extensively reported, Judge is in the middle of a custody battle with her ex-husband, Simon Barney, over their three kids. Barney claims Tamra has neglected them while she’s staunchly denied it.

But Judge’s oldest child, son Vieth, is from her first marriage and now works for her and third husband Eddie at CUT Fitness, where he’s intent on looking buff!

Eddie told Judge in the wake of his diagnosis, he felt Vieth should stop dreaming of being a bodybuilder. Judge then told Eddie that her own father had died of a heart attack at 50 when she was in the house with him.

“It was really sad. He just fell asleep and died,” Judge told the cameras.

She hoped the office visit would be a wake-up call for her son.

In the other big story on Monday’s episode, Heather Dubrow was offered a guest hosting gig on Good Day L.A., and told the Judges they should promote their CUT Fitness business on the show.

At Shannon Beador’s Christmas party, Tamra took umbrage, remembering that the last time Dubrow had guest-hosted on Good Day L.A., she’d helped promote a rival Orange County fitness studio, Orange Theory.

“I had nothing to do with the other fitness studio coming on,” Dubrow told Tamra. “I had no control of that.”

But behind Dubrow’s back, Judge told the other housewives at the party about Dubrow’s betrayal.

When Dubrow appeared, Lizzie Rosvek said they should all hash it out.

Dubrow again insisted she wasn’t behind the Good Day L.A. mess as Judge looked at her skeptically.

Beador came to Judge’s defense and criticized Dubrow for being condescending.

Dubrow felt ambushed, and said, “Have I ever lied to you?”

Judge said, “Not that I know of.”

“Why would I do something on purpose to hurt you?” Dubrow asked.

Wanting to leave, Dubrow took a phone call from her daughter, who said she was ill — but Vicki Gunvalson told the cameras it was a phony phone call.

In any case, it meant Dubrow and her husband Terry exited the party as she told Tamra, “I love you … I don’t like you.”

Fitness maven Judge sniped to the others, “As a friend, I would never support another company.”
