It so hard to know what to believe when it comes to Tamra Judge’s estranged relationship with her daughter Sidney Barney. For everyone who watches Real Housewives of Orange County, it’s possible to go for the narrative that has Tamra’s ex husband Simon Barney controlling Sidney’s opinions about Tamra. Then there are these other accusations that Tamra is actually a “monster mom.” Either way, the result is the same: Tamra hasn’t seen her daughter in years and she considers herself to be an “erased mom” who has participated in a documentary about erased family members.
I have to admit that I feel really awkward writing this one. This is obviously a very sensitive topic for everyone involved and it’s just legitimately tough to know what’s actually true as a total outsider who’s attempting to observe. Is Tamra’s participation in this documentary a last ditch effort to appeal to Sidney? Or is this just making their private family struggle way more public than it needs to be?
The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
During the reunion Tamra shared that her oldest daughter Sidney no longer wants to live with her or have a relationship.Naturally, Tamra blames Satan, who loves confusion her ex-husband Simon Barney, with whom Tamra is embroiled in a nasty custody battle. Tamra accused Simon of manipulating Sidney and causing their damaged relationship. On the reunion, Tamra cried that she has done all she can to fix things.
Now, for the first time, Tamra’s daughter Sidney, 17, is possibly giving her side of the story.
Tamra is in the middle of heated custody battle with her ex-husband Simon Barney, and Gretchen is adding fuel to the fire by reminding Tamra that words can come back to haunt you! O-U-C-H.
Is Gretchen really in a position to comment on anyone’s negligent parenting? She says yes, because all those things we believed about Slade being a deadbeat dad were just rumors perpetuated by Tamra! Were they?
Last week Tamra did an interview accusing Simon of alienating Sidney and hindering their relationship; Simon fought back accusing Tamra of being a neglectful mother whose outrageous antics on Real Housewives Of Orange County are embarrassing to her teenage daughter.
In a new report, Simon is accused of publicly leaking court documents and planting a bevy of lies to besmirch Tamra’s unimpeachable reputation! “Shame on my ex for giving radar an half assed statement to a sealed case! I hope he’s proud #POS,” the reality star and born again Christian tweeted. Tamra also accused Simon of bullying her in another tweet and called his behavior “sick.”
Simon Barney is done keeping silent about his acrimonious custody battle with Tamra Judge! Unfortunately, in the middle of it is Tamra and Simon’s 16-year-old daughter Sidney. After Tamra accused Simon of controlling Sidney in an interview last week, Simon is fighting back by defending his behavior and labeling Tamra as an “abusive” mother!
“I have always tried to keep quiet and take the high road. Unfortunately the latest barrage of negative press has warranted some kind of statement,” Simon declared. “My statement is to set the record straight with facts, truths, not fabrications and accusations.”
Last week the Real Housewives Of Orange County star made several scathing accusations against Simon, including that Sidney was a victim of ‘parental alienation’ because of Simon preventing Sidney from having a relationship with Tamra. Tamra claimed a therapist working with her and Sidney backed her claim and Tamra was found innocent of “alienating behaviors.”
Tamra Judge is not ready to give up on rebuilding a relationship with her 16-year-old daughter Sydney – even if that means taking ex-husband Simon Barney back to court! This time Tamra is fighting to have Simon’s full custody of Sydney revoked claiming he is in contempt of court. I’d say he’s contemptuous alright!
The exes have been waging war against each other over custody after Simon filed court documents barring their three minor children from appearing on Real Housewives Of Orange County, plus accusing Tamra of abuse and neglect. Simon was seeking to revoke joint custody from Tamra. However, Simon was called out by a judge for exaggerating his claims, for which he had no proof, although the judge upheld the decision that the kids be kept off reality TV.
Simon sued Tamra for full custody of their three children, Sidney, Spencer, and Sophia and in particular claimed eldest daughter Sidney was embarrassed by her Real Housewives Of Orange County star mother. Per the latest court ruling it was determined that Simon will have full-custody of Sidney, but Tamra will continue to share custody of Spencer and Sophia.
