In other OC news, Simon Barney is defending himself against the accusations of estranged wife Tamra Barney on the last episode. If you recall, Tamra accused Simon of flipping out and harassing her via text messaging over her trip to Spain. Tamra stated he was upset she didn’t tell him about her 10-day vacay with beau Eddie Judge.
Well, Simon denies harassing Tamra and posted the entire text message exchange between the two following that trip on his facebook page. Simon posted the messages along with the following statement -
“I have always tried to be above all the Drama and lies this and last season. This is the one rare time that I have commented about her or the show. That being said… My soon to be ex tells Vicki I was harassing her by text while she was in Spain. So I decided to look back at the texts I sent her when I found out she was in Spain, and my kids were being watch by 4 different people, including a minor. Maybe it’s me, but after reading it and I don’t see the harassment.Do you?”
Well, we’ll let you be the judge. The screen shots of the text messages are below.
