Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney and husband Simon Barney are getting divorced.
In the divorce papers, filed just today (January 7), Simon contends that his wife “has been verbally abusive and has committed acts of disloyalty and infidelity.” He also asks for Tamra to receive no spousal support.
The couple have been married for 11 years and 8 months. They have three children together, Sidney, 11, Spencer, 9, and Sophia, 4. Tamra has an older son, Ryan, 23, from a previous marriage.
Tamra has been expressing her marriage troubles on the current season of Real Housewives. When the couple first came on the show, they seemed very much in love. They were sex-crazed and always seemed to be on the same page. Now, with financial troubles in the mix, and the fact that Simon does not get along with Tamra’s older son, Ryan, has taken a toll on their marriage.
Reports say that Tamra has moved out of their shared home in Ladera Ranch, CA, earlier this week into a near-by apartment.
Sources close to the Barney state that the show has changed Tamra, and Simon just wasn’t happy. In recent shows, Simon has been seen saying just that.
Awful. Sad when children are involved in divorce.
