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.
Since filing for divorce in December of 2017, the former couple has been battling it out in court. Over everything from spousal support to custody matters related to their three daughters. There currently seems to be no end in sight to the conclusion of the former couple’s divorce negotiations. And now David claims that Shannon’s income is much higher than his. He is asking to have his support payments lowered.
Is Shannon crazy? Is Shannon an emotional wreck? Are the voices in Shannon’s head actually Tamra Judge reading a script from David Beador‘s iPhone on how to manipulate and condescend Shannon into a meltdown? #yes
But first a Kelly Dodd montage! Kelly is dating, dating, dating and ignoring Jolie who Michael Dodd is dating. But Vicki Gunvalson isn’t! Obviously, she is very invested in what is going on in Michael’s life.
Part one of the reunion ended with Kelly Dodd screaming into the phone and crying. Part 2 opened with VickiGunvalson apologizing for repeating a rumor she heard about Kelly using cocaine. While that is all nice and good, we know that Vicki’s apology is as sincere as the one Kelly gave for calling Vicki a “pig” and a “fat ass.” Shannon, however, ermerges as the unlikely voice of reason when she points out that the negativity and tit for tat is really hitting too low and isn’t making either woman feel (or look) good. And no amount of plastic surgery erases a bad attitude!
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 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.
