Sh*t just got real in the OC. Tamra Barney, star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, has fired back at her ex-husband Simon for his inflammatory claims about her hard partying ways, which he was using as part of his justification for why the pair’s three children should not appear on the show. Obvs, Tamra didn’t like his mention of her use of sex toys, among other things, so now the reality star has headed back to court to file her rebuttal.
Previously, we reported that Simon had prohibited the children, Sidney, 15, Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8, from participating on the hit reality show, against the wishes of his ex Tamra. Tamra took him to court, citing that what happens during her time with the kids is up to her, and since then, the bitter exes have been busy trying to make each other look like complete a-holes.
After Simon blasted Tamra – and The Real Housewives of Orange County – earlier this week in court with mentions of strippers, sex toys and other adult-oriented material on the show, T has fired back with her own rebuttal, which is actually pretty lame. “The Petitioner utilizes the majority of his declaration to diminish my character while at the same time he is living with his girlfriend, who is twenty years younger than him,” Tamra says in court documents.“I am requesting the court admonish the Petitioner regarding his tactics. The Petitioner should take a moment to reflect on how he is damaging our children instead of utilizing all of his energies toward alienating them from me.”
Um, seriously Tamra? That’s what you’re going with? Half of the OC probably consists of men shacking up with hot young things. I seriously doubt anyone cares.
Tamra Barney did manage to make a few good points in her rebuttal, however, including that the adult-oriented stuff is ONLY done when the kids aren’t around, and that what happened at her bachelorette party (the bit about the sex toys/strippers) happens at bachelorette parties everywhere, so what’s the big deal? She also implored the judge to consider the fact that Simon’s entire argument seems to be built upon defaming her, rather than a genuine concern about what’s best for the children.
So whose side are you on? Should Tamra and Simon Barney’s kids be allowed to appear on the show? Tell us what you think in the comments!
