As for what led to the violent altercation, Radar reveals the argument had to do with Tamra planning a birthday party for one of their kids at her house. Despite inviting Simon to the party, he apparently felt she should have chosen a more neutral location.
The altercation took place Monday night as Simon was returning their small dog back to Tamra’s house (the two share custody of the dog). A source tells Radar that Simon “was angry and threw the leash at her and hit her with it.” The source adds that “their kids were in the house and started crying. It was a bad scene.”
Tamra, who has been dating Eddie Judgefor months now, felt that Simon went too far. “The leash hit Tamra. She wasn’t sure what to do,” says the source. “But she knew she couldn’t tolerate the violence. She called the cops.”
Simon is scheduled to be arraigned today. He is expected to enter a plea to the charge. TMZ is also reporting that Simon is still in police custody. His mugshot is below. The sixth season of the Real Housewives of OC is currently filming, though Simon will no longer be a part of the show.
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED BY THIS NEWS OF SIMON’S ARREST?
Pictured above is Peggy Tanous and husband Micah Tanous on their wedding day. Radar is reporting the Alexis Bellino clone Peggy has joined the cast and has even began filming scenes with the other housewives.
Oddly enough, Peggy is said to be a friend of Alexis Bellinowith insiders describing her as being “truthful and blunt” and someone “who always tell it the way it is.”
Peggy’s husband, Micah, is described as being an internet entrepreneur. Peggy and Micah have two daughters together.
According to Radar, Peggy will be joining existing cast members Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino. Lynne Curtin’s name was left out of the list, could she be off the show? Only time will tell.
Alexis, who might or might not have gotten a new face since her Bravo show went off the air, hosted a Hawaii Day luau at the TAO Beach on Friday where she joked about Jim’s nonalleged controlling ways. Alexis told the crowd, “I think we all know that I am the one in charge!” The couple also hit up LAVO for more celebrating.
More pictures of Alexis, 33, below as the mother of three even stripped down to show off her bikini body at TAO Beach.
In other OC news, are Tamra Barney and Lynne Curtinnew BFFS? It seems so as the two have been photographed together quite a bit lately. Tamra and Lynne were first photographed together at the Kari Feinstein MTV Movie Awards Style Lounge picking up some free swag. They were also photographed together days later running in a Rock n’ Roll Marathon. Also in attendance was Tamra’s boyfriend, Eddie Judge, as the two seem to be going strong.
According to TMZ, Ryan Vieth was arrested on Wednesday night after cops pulled him over for a minor traffic stop and then learned there was an active warrant out for his arrest.
This all stems from a recent missed court appearance in connection with a prior traffic problem. Ryan is currently being held on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to face the judge later today.
So TMZ reported Ryan’s arrest this morning, however Tamra already gave an exclusive interview about her son’s arrest to RadarOnline last night.
Tamra reveals to Radar that she received a phone call from Ryan alerting her that he had been arrested, but claims she is done enabling him. “I haven’t spoken to Ryan since his arrest, I am livid. I’m done enabling him.”I’ve cried my last tear for him, I don’t have anymore,” said Tamra.
Ryan, 24, is currently unemployed and living with Tamra’s mother. Tamra continued, “I love Ryan, but he needs to grow up. I’ve enabled him way too much throughout his life and it’s over.”He’s an adult now and needs to start providing for himself. “When he gets of jail there is going to be an intervention with him. “He goes to court tomorrow, Friday, I won’t be there. “I love him but enough is enough, he needs to grow up.”
In attendance were Alexis Bellino and her husband, Lynne Curtin and her daughter Alexa, as well as Tamra Barney. According to numerous reports, Tamra walked the red carpet with her new beau Eddie Judge. They were however not photographed together. Not in attendance was Gretchen Rossi who of course had much bigger fish to fry.
And I hate to think it, say it, or even admit it but Alexis looks much prettier since her plastic surgery, no?

After a few weeks of silence, it seems Tamra Barneyand Simon Barney are back at it again. Despite their past pleas and promises to make their impending divorce peaceful for the sake of their kids, their actions continue to tell a different story.
According to TheDirty website, Real Housewives of Orange County star Simon posted the following message on his facebook page this past weekend: “It was Tamra’s weekend to have the kids & she left & went to LA with Lynne, Frank & her Boy Toy. She was suppose to return Sunday but she called and said she got “Stuck” in LA. LA is only 45 min. away how do you get “Stuck”? But yet she had pics of them out at lunch & shopping yesterday.”
A quick look at Simon’s facebook page this morning shows no mention of the above post, but there’s a good chance he has since deleted it.
Tamra however didn’t take too well to the post/accusation and sent the site’s owner, Nik Richie (yes the same Nik Richie who just married former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas), the following text message -
“Hi Nik, I just read the recent post about me going to L.A. It makes me sick that Simon stoops to such low levels to make me look bad. I’m not going to get into a public pissing match with this bitch! But it is all a lie to make me look bad. He is mad cause I was out having fun WITHOUT him. His control issues will never stop. I hope the man gets help soon.”
A screenshot of Tamra’s text message is below. Tamra and Simon both need to stop airing their dirty laundry and start acting like adults, at least for the sake of their kids.

First the OC mom lied about her relationship with new beau Eddie Judge, you can read all about that here. And now she has chosen to lie about her affiliation and usage of weight loss drug, Duzoxin.
A reader emailed us a conversation Tamra had with a friend on her facebook page, during which which she denied taking the weight loss drug, and even denied having anything to do with the company. A quick check to Tamra’s facebook two days ago showed the conversation. She seems to have now deleted it from her page. The coversation is below -
Christi - Tamra. Does Duzoxin really work? Does it make you feel like your loaded on caffeine or is it an even energy and metabolism heightner?2 hours ago · Tamra Barney I do not take it… I have nothing to do with that company
2 hours ago · Christi - Ok great. I saw the video they had posted and was thinking about ordering it if you said it worked.
about an hour ago · Christi - Do you know of something that does work? With all the weight loss/maintaining drugs out there it would be nice to know of some that actually work. Tamra Barney – be very careful taking any diet pill. have you tried a green tea fat burner? I use to take lipo 6 and it worked for me

As you can see from the above photo, Tamra was a spokeperson for the company along with some of her fellow co-stars. Not only that, her page and personal testimonial is still up on the company’s site – at http://www.duzoxintv.com/tamra/. She gave the following testimonial below -
“As a mom, reality TV star, and a busy woman, I have tried many different products in the past to help me with my workout regimen. Nothing I have tried so far has come close to what Düzoxin has done for me. I’ve just started taking Düzoxin, and judging by how wonderful the other girls look and feel, I have a feeling I’ll be taking Düxoxin for a very long time to come. Thank you Düzoxin for making my life just a bit easier!”
It’s a wonder she and Gretchen Rossi don’t get along better, they both seem to have A LOT in common.
TheDirty referenced a RadarOnline article yesterday which showed pictures of Tamra and new boyfriend Eddie Judge on a romantic vacation. Eddie was of course referred to as being a friend of Simon’s in the article, something Tamra denies and accuses Simon of lying about, simply to make her look bad.
The email Tamra sent to TheDirty is below -
In the email, Tamra references Simon’s new friendship with Gretchen Rossi’s alleged former lover Jay Photoglou. Not exactly certain why Tamra seems repulsed by this considering she was the first one to befriend Jay last year, while he fed her some damaging information about Gretchen. All of which she shared with viewers during last year’s dramatic reunion show.
Jay then sent an email to TheDirty claiming he was with Simon when he infamously ran into Tamra and Eddie together in Las Vegas. According to Jay, Simon was crushed, and Tamra knew beforehand that Simon would be at the club.
Sighs, it’s becoming more difficult to keep up with this OC drama.
