Tamra Judge Wins Custody of Her Kids

"I'm extremely happy!" she says of the court outcome.

By Sarv Kreindler

It's no secret that Tamra Judge has been going through a brutal custody battle with ex-husband Simon Barney, with Simon hurling allegations that Tamra has been a "negligent" mother and demanding sole physical custody of their three kids together: Sidney, Spencer, and Sophia.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

But today is a happy day for Tamra at last. The judge in the case dismissed the motion for sole custody for both Spencer and Sophia. The status for 15-year-old Sidney will be decided in December.

"I’m extremely happy!” Tamra told Star Magazine after the hearing last week. "I’m so happy this nightmare is over for my children’s sake."

The Real Housewives of Orange County star also did not mince words when it came to her ex. "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 said.

Tamra's divorce with Simon has been well-documented on the past few seasons of RHOC and Tamra has called the custody battle "one of the most devastating times of my life." In a previous blog post, she expressed how much her family means to her, writing, "My children are my life and I love and cherish them with all my heart. It's a love that only a parent knows. All I ever wanted to be was a mother, just like my mom and my grandmother."
