's relationship with her daughters is complicated to say the least.
The 48-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star posted a photo August 1 that boasted that she was "having a blast" at the beach with her ten-year-old daughter, Sophia.
However, while she spent the day lavishing attention on her youngest daughter, her relationship with her 17-year-old daughter Sidney has gone completely off the rails.
“I’ve never lost custody
of any of my kids,” Tamra told ET. “I hear that all the time. . .I’m not going through a custody battle.”
“It’s sad, and hard, and horrible, and it’s happening all over the world,” she insisted. “It’s when a kid gets stuck in the middle. . .There was no huge thing that happened between us. It wasn’t like we were fighting or screaming at each other.
“As a result of [the drama], [Sidney’s] brother, Spencer, lives with me full time and he doesn’t speak to his dad,” Tamra shared. “It’s a mess. I have asked, like, ‘Can the four of us sit down?’ … I truly believe kids need both their parents. They need both of them to be healthy, successful, happy adults. Now, the situation is just so messed up and [Simon] won’t agree to it.”
