Tamra Judge can finally breathe easier now that her custody battle is almost over. A judge ruled yesterday that there was no evidence to suggest a change is needed to the current custody agreement between Tamra and her former husband Simon. Simon has been alleging that Tamra is a neglectful parent and the children’s basic needs are not being met. The judge did leave the door open for Simon to officially be granted full custody for their oldest daughter , Sidney, age 15. Sidney has lived with Simon since late last year. Sidney has anxiety from issues with schoolmates who taunt her about her mother’s behavior on the show, according to multiple sources. Sidney and Tamra have tried counseling with little success off and on over the last year. The mother and daughter have also had spats on social media. Simon has also allegedly leaked phone calls to the press where the mother and daughter can be heard engaged in conversations. In those calls Sidney would repeatedly say that they should discuss these matters in therapy with a mediator and Tamra would seem to escalate the drama. The judge will decide the permanent custody of Sidney in a hearing set for December.
Tamra sold her feelings on the court case to Star Magazine and gave them the quote below:
“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.”
Tamra also thanked her fans and supporters on Twitter. “Thank you to everyone that supported me and knew All his allegations were false. The truth always comes out. I’m so happy! Thank you Jesus.” Did Melissa Gorga ghostwrite that tweet for her?
Are you surprised the judge did not take Simon’s concerns seriously?
