Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is being dragged through the mud by her ex-husband, Simon, yet again. This time he is accusing her — in court documents — that she is an unfit mother who does not feed, seek medical care or bathe their three children on a regular basis.
Radar Online recently reported that Simon Barney filed court documents that claim Tamra, "has been very neglectful in her care for the children.". Tamra obviously does not agree with the allegations, taking to Instagram – posting the above photo with the caption, "She held my hand all night. I dropped her off at school afraid of what she might have to go through . She's so innocent." – and speaking to PEOPLE about how the allegations are really hurting their family.

Tamra told PEOPLE that she is "saddened by the false stories my ex-husband has released. He has no foundation to his allegations and in my opinion will do anything to destroy me. Unfortunately, he is hurting our children and my family in the process."
No doubt! Divorce has to be hard enough for kids, especially one done with the public watching. So now Simon has decided to fight publicly? Classy. Does it really sound like he has his kids best interests at heart!?!?!?
Tamra continues by saying, "I love my children more than anything in this world. He should be ashamed of his action and realize this is not best for our children." She also claims that Simon is really just seeking attention. "It's no coincidence that this story was released on the night RHOC premiered. For someone that wants to keep his children out of the public eye, it's evident he would do anything, including exploiting his kids to get attention."
Hmmmm, the timing of Simon's allegations does sound a little fishy. And from what I remember, I believe he did cherish the spotlight that came with being on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
But perhaps my favorite response to the allegations was another of Tamra's posts on Instagram. In the above photo she is seen hiking with two of the estranged couples three children, along with new husband Eddie Judge, looking every bit the happy family in Hawaii. The caption, "Fun times ! Family hike in Hawaii. I even fed my kids afterward and made them take a shower. Imagine that Radar Online." Priceless!
Let's hope these two can work out their differences. There is a custody hearing set for April 24. We will keep you posted.
TELL US! DO YOU THINK TAMRA IS AN UNFIT MOTHER? DO YOU THINK THIS IS JUST A PUBLICITY GRAB BY SIMON?
