Things are heating up in the battle between Tamra Barney and her ex-husband Simon over whether or not their children should be allowed to appear on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Last week, we reported that Tamra was furious with her ex, with whom she shares joint custody of their three kids, for not permitting the children to be filmed. Now, Simon is firing back at the reality star, and his arguments are pretty convincing.
In court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Simon blasted Tamra for her insistence that the children, 15-year old Sidney, 13-year old Spencer, and 8-year old Sophia, appear on the hit reality show. Even though Simon apparently had no problem with the kids being filmed prior to his and Tamra’s bitter divorce, he’s got a major issue with it now, largely due to Tamra’s bad behavior which he claims results in “consistent embarrassment” to the kids at school.
It got a little intense in the court room when Simon called Tamra out for her actions since they’ve divorced, even mentioning tidbits about her, er, personal grooming habits. In court documents, Simon brought up footage of his ex “naked in a bath tub being intimate with her then boyfriend, current husband, Edward Judge,” and railed about how inappropriate it is for his children to be involved with stuff like that. He also feels the same way about her waxing sessions, during which she had her “vagina waxed on camera, with several men, other than her husband-to-be, present in the room” as well her bachelorette party that included scenes of “[Tamra’s] head in naked strippers crotches.”
As a result of these scenes airing on television, Simon says his children have been repeatedly ridiculed and want nothing to do it. “They have been targeted and are the subject of consistent embarrassment due to the content of the show and their mother’s involvement.” He also points out that “the show (has) started to become increasingly more about the alcohol, intoxication, sex and bad behavior,” which is no place for children.
Tamra Barney, of course, denies any parental wrong-doing and has even claimed that her children, especially young Sophia, want to be a part of the show.
So whose side are you on? Is Simon Barney right to not allow his children to be filmed on The Real Housewives of Orange County, or should Tamra get her way? Sound off in the comments!
