Tamra Judge Drops Major Bombshell About Her Family

The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion kicked off with its first of three parts on Monday night, and while we didn't get to the nitty-gritty with Vicki Gunvalson and Brooks Ayers yet, there was a ton of unexpected drama surrounded Tamra Judge.


As it turns out, Tamra has been estranged for some time from her oldest daughter Sidney, whom she had with ex-husband Simon Barney, mostly because the teen insists her mother ruined her father's life.

"She went to court and testified to the judge against me," the reality star says of the last time she saw her daughter. "That's why I'm speaking out about it now."

Tamra stayed mum about the issues within the family all season long to protect her kids in hopes that they might be able to work something out, but now that the situation appears pretty hopeless, she's opening up about the heartbreaking situation.

Andy Cohen asked Tamra if she was worried about retaliation on the part of Simon once he sees the reunion episode, but she tearfully shrugged it off.

"Maybe, I don’t care anymore," she said. "He’s not going to push me around or tell me what to do. I’ve kept quiet because of him for so long and now I’m speaking out."

Tamra was really vocal this season about getting baptized and finding faith, through which she says she forgives Simon.
