It’s a good week for Tamra Judge! The Real Housewives of Orange County star was victorious in a custody battle court hearing with her ex-husband, Simon Barney, on Thursday.
In court, Simon asked for “sole physical custody” of the pair’s kids, Sidney, 15, Spencer, 14, and Sophia, 8, claiming the reality star was a “negligent” mother. Due to lack of evidence, though, the judge dismissed his motion for a custody change regarding Spencer and Sophia. The status for Sidney was not decided, with another hearing set for December.
“I’m extremely happy!” Tamra told Star after the hearing. “I’m so happy this nightmare is over for my children’s sake. What Simon did to tarnish my image was so damaging to the children. To make up horrible stories about the mother of his children is horrible. I’ve never been anything but a wonderful, hands-on mother to our children. Shame on him for putting everyone through such an emotionally draining experience. I hope that this will stop his constant harassing and make him move on with his life.”
She expressed similar sentiments on Twitter. “Thank you to everyone that supported me and knew All his allegations were false,” she wrote. “The truth always comes out. I’m so happy! Thank you Jesus.”
