RHOC: Tamra Judge’s Son Claims Simon Barney Physically Abused His Mother

Posted on Apr 26 2014 - 5:00pm by Editor


The bitter custody battle of The Real Housewives of Orange County star, Tamra Judge  and former husband, Simon Barney just took a dark turn.

Tamra was married to Simon Barney for 11 years and they have three children together, ranging in age from 7-13 years old.

The couple’s divorce was finalized in October 2011. Simon accused Tamra of child neglect and filed for full custody of their three children. The court documents reveal shocking allegations. Simon accuses Tamra of not cooking for the kids, unsanitary care of the children, not providing medical attention when needed. One of the kids suffered a broken bone in the care of Tamra and she never took the child to the doctor. The list goes on and on!

Now Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth has stepped into the fight and is throwing gasoline on the fire. Ryan is Tamra’s eldest son from her first marriage. On the RHOC, viewers witnessed the contentious relationship between Simon and Ryan.

Ryan took to his Facebook to spill the tea! Ryan is claiming that Simon was verbally and physically abusive to his mother. He’s also claiming, once after physically abusing Tamra, Simon was arrested. Read the entire Facebook post below:

“I am not going to sit here in silence any longer. I will NOT allow this piece of shit Simon Barney to do this to my Mother. I lived with this man growing up, I witnessed first hand what a controlling bastard he is. It’s his way or no way! I was 11 years old the first time Simon beat my mom up and was arrested. I watched him verbally beat her down many times. He caused so many problems between me and my Mom and now he is doing it with my sister Sidney. He verbally abused both of us their entire relationship. That’s why I moved out at 18. Bottom line, He can’t stand to see my Mom happy with Eddie. What he is doing to my brother and sisters is wrong. He doesn’t want his kids full time, he just wants to hurt my Mom. He knew exactly what he was doing when he filed those papers. He knew it would become public and destroy our mother. A responsible father that cared about his kids would have brought his “evidence” in front of a judge and not to the press. I hope the judge throws him in jail where he belongs.”

Whoa!!!! That was a mouthful. What do think of Ryan’s allegations? Do you believe he’s telling the truth about Simon or fabricating to defend his mother.

    Isn’t there some way the judge in this case can muzzle all of them? This is terrible for the children.

    • I hope Simon is working on a gag order for this because I’m sure it’s defamation. Simon did not hit Tamra. Tamra is an unfit mother who put another man before her kids. That sex scene in the bath tub with Eddie….yuck!!!! What kind of mother does that knowing her kids will see it eventually? The woman is loathsome.

        I don’t watch OC so I’m not familiar with the players here. But there are minor children involved who need to be protected from this stuff.

        Yes he did hit tamera he was a arrested and had to do anger classes!!!! And he was the one that filed and took it to the press just like he told his side she is aloud to defend his lies

        • Hi Justlittlecountry….thanks for the info. If I recall correctly, Simon was arrested because he threw a small object at Tamra. The object was something they were bickering over (post divorce) and it struck Tamra but did not cause bodily harm. Simon throwing the object was wrong but I wouldn’t classify that as a woman beater.

            It was a leash. He was arrested after Tamra called the police, but the DA dropped the charges. There is no evidence what so ever that Simon was ever arrested before…Ryan has since removed the FB post…I guess before Simon sued him for defamation. You know if Simon had ever beaten Tamra and Ryan witnessed it, this would have come out long before now especially when Tamra was trying to get full custody of her kids. But, nope..not a word.

          • That’s right. Thank you Shay….I had forgotten the details. I don’t believe Ryan for one minute.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Exactly. I posted before I saw your comment.

          • Justlittlecountry

            Nope it was before they was on reality tv

          • Hi Justlittlecountry….if it’s no trouble, could you post a link to an article proving this. I’m very interested to get the details on the incident. Thanks.

        • RonnieIsBack

          It was supposedly with a dog collar….I still do not believe it…

  • TartLemon

    I don’t know what went on behind closed doors in that marriage. Whatever it was, Simon and Tamra are divorced and living separate lives now. NOTHING can validate the way Tamra is psychologically terrorizing her children with all this press. It belongs behind closed doors in the Courts.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Or getting them involved..the nasty text messages, now this chit..

  • RonnieIsBack

    they are both foul and Ryan is just really nasty…I just do not believe he hit her…if so, she would have spoken up about it a long time ago. Trampra cannot hold water, especially anything vicious against someone she deems the enemy…

    • EXACTLY!!!! And from reading the legal docs the neglect Simon accuses Tamra of……that bitch is gross!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Extremely…even Eddie got on her for being so junky…and nasty.

  • Dani-K

    I never liked Simon because of how controlling he was. To me, if you are a jerk when the cameras are rolling, what are you like when they aren’t? Having said that, I don’t believe the FB post from Ryan. I think OC needs to clean house and start over.

    Cudos to Ryan for sticking up for his mom. I didn’t need to read this to judge for myself from what I saw on tv , that simon is a pos. Any man who would trump up allegations based on this crap is garbage. In hurting his children’s mom, he is effectively hurting them.. Not cool! He’s using the children to slam their mother. No mother is perfect or gonna make the rich call every single time but I think it’s obvious that the children are better off with their mother than that a-hole dad they’ve got. It’s a shame they have a dad like simon.
