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.
Simon has been called out by court psychologists for some of his statements. And he alleges that their eldest daughter does not want a relationship with Tamra. There has been drama in and out of the courtroom between the bitter exes. Simon was seeking sole physical custody, allowing for visitation with Tamra, and for Tamra to pay his attorney fees in the case. Yesterday they met back in court where it was good news for Tamra and their children.
The presiding judge dismissed Simon’s case against Tamra for custody of their two younger children, Spencer and Sophia, citing a lack of evidence to substantiate his claims!
Yesterday Tamra went to court with ex-husband Simon Barney to continue working on their custody dispute – and that wasn’t the only dispute Tamra dealt with that day. She reportedly got into a screaming argument with Simon’s girlfriend Catushia Ienni! The exes are in court because Simon accused Tamra of neglect and is attempting to get full custody of their three minor children, Sydney, Spencer, and Sophia.
Yesterday, Tamra, armed with her attorney and child psychologist Renee Hulse, set out to prove otherwise as both sides’ attorneys met with the judge in chambers. Unfortunately most of the drama happened outside of the courtroom!
Things have been pretty ugly in the four years since Tamra Judge and Simon Barney divorced. They have long been locking horns when it comes to what is best for their three kids, Sidney, 15, Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8.
Simon tried to claim the first victory, trying to make it seem that his petition to not allow the kids to appear on the Real Housewives of Orange County was accepted by the courts. He even went so far as sharing a photo high-fiving his lawyer, but in actuality, the case is still on-going. That was not enough for Simon, who then claimed that Tamra was a neglectful mother. (Btw, if you ask me, Simon just seems like a vengeful, publicity-grabbing ex.)
After the claims of neglect, Tamra told People magazine, "I am 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."
And now, the family therapist is siding with Tamra, according to documents released to AllThingsRH.
Despite promoting Marriage Bootcamp, it seems Gretchen and sycophant fiancé Slade Smiley can't let go of some of their RHOC dramas – and lucky for them neither can their former co-star Tamra Judge! Good ol' Tam-Tam… never one to take the highroad.
Now that Tamra is having custody issues of her own with ex-husband Simon Barney, a fan lashed out on twitter calling Tamra's situation karma after how she treated Slade. Tamra didn't like that and reacted writing, “Oh plz. That f**ker is a deadbeat with a sick son. Keep supporting him, it makes you look Real good!” Tamra has since deleted the tweet, but Slade wasn't going to let that PR opportunity go to waste.
"Tonight's show was refreshing, silly and a lot of fun. True friends in Hawaii having a good time," Tamra begins. "Vicki [Gunvalson] learns the English language, I learn the proper temperature to store red wine and plumeria is not a venereal disease. No drama yet…but stay tuned!"
