It hasn’t even been a year since Tamra Barney married Eddie Judge, but the Real Housewives of Orange County star doesn’t even have time to bask in the newlywed glow. Instead, she’s in the middle of a vicious custody battle with her ex-husband, Simon Barney.

“I can’t stop crying,” she tells Star, exclusively. “It’s killing me that my kids are having to deal with this.”

On March 28, Simon filed a court document that allege his ex-wife neglects their three kids. He included series of text messages between himself and the reality star, as well as between Tamra and their oldest daughter, Sidney, who moved in with her dad in October 2013.

“The divorce was hard enough on them,” Tamra adds. “For Simon to be dragging not only be through the mud but also our kids, it’s absolutely sickening. I mean, bash me all you want, but don’t include my kids.”
