Last winter, the "Real Housewives of Orange County" star and her husband, Eddie Judge, opened CUT Fitness, and now, months later, they are being targeted by critics. In a new report, several comments left by customers are revealed -- and it doesn't sound good for Barney and Judge.

According to the Aug. 19 report by Radar Online, customers of the gym are unsatisfied with their experience and have taken to Yelp to express their concern. In addition to feeling that the gym was overpriced, many customers had bad things to say about those working at CUT Fitness.

“When I arrived at the grand opening, not one person greeted me or even acknowledged that I was there,” one customer claimed. “I stood right next to Eddie and said hi and he just looked away. I have never felt so out of place.” Another customer called CUT Fitness a "total scam" and a "joke."

In June a woman named Jessica L. said CUT Fitness' classes were “overpriced.” In response, Barney's husband reported wrote, "I was not able to find you in our records, so it’s safe to assume you have never experienced the CUT Fitness workouts.”

However, since the woman was listed simply as "Jessica L.," it seemed odd that Judge would have even attempted to find her in their system. After all, without a last name, was that even possible?

“It’s funny that you conveniently can’t find me in your system. Especially since Yelp doesn’t provide personal information besides first names!” Jessica L. noted.

On a recent episode of "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Barney's own son, Ryan Vieth (who used to work at CUT Fitness), slammed the gym's high membership fees and alleged the flooring had been incorrectly installed.

In Oct. 2013, it was reported Barney would be opening a second location of her CUT Fitness studio, but thus far, nearly one year later, there doesn't appear to be any solid evidence of another gym.

Radar Online reached out to Bravo for a comment in regard to Barney's gym criticism. Bravo didn't respond.
