Tamra Judge has plans to lay it all on the line if she should ever return to the Real Housewives of Orange County.
The former OC Housewife’s marital drama with ex-husband Simon Barney will go down in Housewives history as some of the BEST drama on the franchise.
It’s no secret that Tamra and Simon’s relationship has been rocky. Initally the couple’s marriage was picture-perfect when they first joined RHOC, but by season 5, their marriage unraveled following a string of neverending arguments.
Though the couple divorced in 2011, their issues were far from over. A battle over custody turned into a years-long nightmare for both of them.
After divorcing in 2011, Simon and Tamra’s relationship deteriorated even further as a years-long custody battle ensued. This resulted in their eldest daughter Sidney Barney becoming alienated from Tamra. Years later, their son Spencer Barney became alienated from Simon.
Eventually, the family reconciled after Simon was diagnosed with stage 3 throat cancer in early 2020.
Fast forward to 2021, and Tamra reveals that she wants to film with Simon if she ever returns to RHOC.
Now that she and Simon are friends again, she wants to show viewers a different side of her ex-husband and how their relationship has evolved.
“I would like to be able to go back and show that side of our relationship because I feel like he forever gets a bad rap because he was on the show and he was uptight . . . He was never a horrible guy, he was just very conservative, and none of it made him comfortable. I think now it would be a little bit different to see a softer side of him,” Tamra said on the Side Piece with Melissa Pfeister.
RHOC is expected to return for season 16 in early 2022.
