Real Housewives of Orange County has had more than its share of divorces amongst cast members. Some of the splits have been relatively low drama-like the Gina/Jeanas-Gina Kirschenheiter and Jeana Keough. Other un-couplings have occurred after decades-long marriages fell apart-like the unions of Lynne Curtin and Vicki Gunvalson.
And a few breakups have been ugly-like those of OC besties Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge. Tamra probably gets the “award” for the longest standing drama following a breakup, however. Since she and ex-hubby Simon Barney parted ways in 2010, they have engaged in public battles over parenting and child custody. Now, Tamra is alleging that her youngest daughter Sophia wants to film on the show, but Simon won’t allow it.
While Tamra Judge has been vacationing in Aruba, her daughter Sidney hopped on Facebook to blast Tamra’s mothering and lashed out at the Real Housewives Of Orange County star for putting reality TV before their family.
Sidney has since deleted the excoriating post (thank you Jesus it’s logged for all posterity on the internet!), however before it was removed Tamra rampaged through the comment thread to defend herself and act like Saint Holier Than Thou Of The Jesus Barbies. You can read Sidney’s full statement here.
Tamra Judge‘s strained relationship with her ex-husband Simon Barney and her daughter Sidney Barney has been a big part of Tamra’s Real Housewives of Orange County journey. Both relationships have been a roller coaster and just when we thought things had turned a corner after Tamra was invited to attend Sidney’s graduation in June, Sidney speaks out and slams her mother’s actions.
Last month Tamra shared the photo above and revealed that she was in attendance for Sidney’s graduation. She captioned it, “So many things to be proud of this month. 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.”
Well, Sidney is not happy about the post and she shared in a new public Facebook message that she is NOT on good terms with Tamra. And doesn’t appreciate Tamra’s efforts to make this part of her reality TV storyline.
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.
