opinionate

verb; derivation
To judge someone, particularly in a negative manner. Intended Meaning: to form an opinion of or to judge someone negatively Analysis: opinion -ate opinion -V to form an opinion Possible Reason Used: The woman was trying to humiliate her competition by demeaning her career, or lack of a career. In her angered state, the woman might not have been thinking too clearly and therefore chose to use opinionate rather than the accepted synonym judge. She is probably more familiar with using opinion rather than judgment and therefore could have seen this new word as a quick way of showing her mind at the moment.
 
You can sit there and opinionate me for having a career
Etymology : Derivation from root OPINION, plus suffix -ATE.
