Tamra Barney's ex, Simon Barney, is doing all he can to prevent their three children from appearing on "The Real Housewives of Orange County." As reported by Radar Online on Tuesday, Dec. 16, Simon has filed court papers saying that the children, in particular the two eldest, are ridiculed and embarrassed because of their mom's behavior on the show and they themselves shouldn't be on it.
“They have been targeted and are the subject of consistent embarrassment due to the content of the show and their mother’s involvement," he stated in his declaration regarding 15-years-old Sidney and 13-years-old Spencer.
He claims that the two teenagers “want no part of it.”
As for 8-years-old Sophia, whom Tamra claims has expressed a desire to be on cameras, Simon says that she's too young to understand the ramifications of being on "The Real Housewives of Orange County," which has "started to become increasingly more about the alcohol, intoxication, sex and bad behavior."
So who's telling the truth here? Are Sidney and Spencer really that embarrassed by their mom and want nothing to do with her fame? A quick look at Tamra Barney's Instagram account does show a lot of photos of Sophia but not her two teenagers. Perhaps they really are staying away. Of course, they could also just be typical teenagers who don't want to hang out with their mom anymore!
Do you think Tamra should be allowed to have her kids on the show?
