Simon Barney, the husband of Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney, was arrested on Tuesday morning on a domestic violence charge.

The fight began over a getting custody of the couple's dog. The two had been sharing the pup and he brought it back to her house on Monday night.

“He was angry and threw the leash at her and hit her with it,” claims a source. “Their kids were in the house and started crying. It was a bad scene."

The two are going through a divorce and Tamra has a new house, along with a new boyfriend.

“The leash hit Tamra. She wasn’t sure what to do,” added the insider. “But she knew she couldn’t tolerate the violence. She called the cops.”

Simon texted her after the incident saying that the leash slipped out of his hands.

“He knew he had a problem at that point,” the source said.

Simon will be arraigned and is expected to enter a plea on Tuesday. He was taken into custody on $10,000 bail.

    oh gimme a break - it's not like he threw a knife at her or pointed a gun and shot………..grow up, it's a simple argument, in the heat of the moment he threw the leash and it accidentally hit her……..i can't stand dumb bitches like this that scream they're being "abused" - something must have appealed at one time, she had children with him…………..

    I'm not surprised at all. I saw the real Simon last season so this domestic violence charge is long over due. Fuck you Simon - punk ass bitch.

    If something slips out of your hands, it normally doesn't go flying across a room and hit someone else.

    Are you kidding me?!?! He got arrested because "The leash hit Tamr" ?!?!?! That is the DUMBEST thing I have ever hear! Wasn't she married to this dude for 10 years and has like 3 kids with him??? I think that's waaaay over the top for her to have called the police. What a BITCH!

    I have to say, out of all the Real Housewives shows, Simon was by far the most horrible husband. He treated Tamra and her friends like shit. He always seemed like the type who would be physically violent.
    I'm glad Tamra has moved on and has a new man. She deserves much better than him.

    I can see him getting really violent- he has it in him….

    bleh, you knew she was an unhappy witch when she was always trying to get Gretchen "NAKED WASTED" and set her up to do stupid things and put into jeopardy her "engagement." Maybe now that she's moved on and may be happier she has mellowed that nasty streak inside her.



  8. 8

    oh and as soon as Gretchen hit the show, she stopped being "THE HOTTEST HOUSEWIFE" lol

    His face is always so angry looking. When I first saw him, I thought he would be abusive and controlling. He just looks evil. I haven't seen that many episodes and from what I've seen he wasn't, but you never know what's going on off camera, I mean they Are getting a divorce.

    Little Mr. Perfect? He's a very angry dude.

    She's been waiting for the opportunity to get Simon and now she's done it…because a leash hit her on the wrist. Maybe she and Vicki will finally be happy now that they've tarnished his reputation just a little more. Hate to say it but, I'm on the man's team this time.

    Tamra is white trash and always will be. He was stupid to marry her and hope she would become classy. She's a joke and I feel sorry for Simon.



  13. 13

    I am glad I have the kinda of husband that I do saying that it slipped out of his hand is bullshit he threw it at her and he knows he did just apologize and get over it

    Wow, I don't condone physical violence, but a leash? Dramatic, much? It's kind of sad but Luanne's song comes to mind. Money can't buy you claaaass! haha She also sure moved on really quick.

    Both of them are losers. Tamra is involved with another loser,and always been nasty to Rossi, ’cause the girl is pretty. what can you get from losers, Just losers acts!!!!!

    Man up until the last part of the last season, I liked Simon and then it's like he put his douche mask on and hasn't looked back. Too bad, bc for the first few seasons he was on the show he ADORED Tamara. I'm not Tamara's biggest fan, but I still think that all that's happened to her is shitastic. As much as I hate to admit this, I do blame the likes of Vicki and some of the other wives for trying to change Tamara when for a while she seemed to have the best marriage of those on the show….



  17. 17

    Golly! Maybe now she can get more in the divorce settlement!

    If it was a retractable dog leash those are encased in a large pastic case. You could hurt somebody by throwing that at them.
