Tamra Judge has finally made amends with her oldest daughter, Sidney Barney, who she shares with former husband Simon Barney.
According to a February 28 report from Hollywood Life, the Real Housewives of Orange County star confirmed the news of her reunion with Sidney to a fan on her Instagram page who asked if Sidney had gotten back in touch with her after years of estrangement following the devastating news of Simon’s cancer battle, which was first confirmed last month.
“Since the news Simon does your other daughter talk to you?” the fan asked.
“We have all reunited,” Tamra replied.
As fans of Tamra may recall, she revealed during the season 10 reunion for The Real Housewives of Orange County in 2015 that she hadn’t spoken to Sidney in two years. Then, in 2017, things appeared to be taking a turn in the right direction as Tamra attended Sidney’s high school graduation.
Unfortunately, after sharing photos of the event online, Tamra, who announced her exit from the show in January, was once again ousted by her oldest daughter.
After Tamra, who is rumored to be returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County after quitting, shared photos of herself attending Sidney’s high school graduation with Simon in 2017, Sidney took to her Twitter page and shared an alleged screenshot of a conversation between them in which Tamra was seen agreeing not to post images of Sidney on social media.
“I don’t want you to take pictures and post them anywhere, no tweets or anything either because you know I don’t want to be posted about,” Sidney warned.
“Okay. I don’t post pictures of you Sidney and would never do That,” Tamra replied.
In August 2017, Sidney shared a shocking post on her Facebook page in which she called out her reality star mother for supposed neglect and abuse of her and her siblings.
“The reasons I left my mother’s house are that she was neglectful (leaving us at home with no food or simply ignoring us entirely), she constantly put herself first and the biggest reason was that she was mentally and emotionally abusive. She was no mother to me,” Sidney wrote in the since-deleted post.
After seeing what her oldest daughter had written, Tamra released a statement of her own in which she insisted to her fans and followers on Instagram that she would never do any of the things she was accused of.
“I love my daughter and I would NEVER abuse, hurt or neglect her in any way. I ask that you do not send Sidney negative messages or comments. Direct them at me if you need to. Thank you for all your love and support,” she shared.
