Tamra Judge has made no secret about being abandoned by her eldest daughter Sidney. Tamra has consistently blamed her spiteful ex-husband Simon Barney for the estrangement. However, Tamra finally, happily reunited with her daughter to attend Sidney’s high school graduation. Then she ran straight to social media to post about it, which is part of what drew Tamra and Sidney apart to begin with.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star shares three children with Simon. After their divorce, an acrimonious custody dispute ensued, resulting in Tamra and Simon sharing custody of son Spencer and younger daughter Sophia. Sidney, however, refused to speak with Tamra over her embarrassing behavior on Bravo and her constant fame whoring. Tamra even participated in a documentary about “erased” parents to educate others on this phenomena.
Well, bygones are bygones, so good for the family for finally putting differences aside to unify.

“So many things to be proud of this month,” Tamra shared in an emotional Instagram post. “Our family has come a long way and I couldn’t be happier. Simon and I are so proud of these amazing, smart, funny, beautiful, & crazy kids. Congrats Sidney. Your smile lightens up the room and your future is so bright. #gaveituptojesus #2017 #family.”
It’s great to see Tamra, Simon, and their kids all seeming happy and proud.
On last season of RHOC, Tamra literally fought with Kelly Dodd over accusations about why Sidney doesn’t speak with Tamra. Tamra then opened up about the situation during the reunion and says afterwards “all hell broke loose” between her and Sidney, which ended up being “kind of a breakthrough” that finally got them talking again.
“It wasn’t necessarily the best communication, but we were communicating,” Tamra explained to The Daily Dish. “And then it kind of just goes back into I don’t hear from her. But I text her once a week, tell her I love her, I tell her the door’s always open for her and let’s just try to get this family back together.”

Well apparently that opened the door to an invite to Sidney’s graduation! I do have to wonder how Sidney felt about Tamra immediately sharing photos on social media, but hopefully she’ll be erased no more from her daughter’s life. Good for the Barney-Judge family – glad to see progress for them after such a painful process.
