She’s getting serious!
Tamra Barney and the Real Housewives of Orange County are getting ready to film season nine of the show, and Tamra wants her kids on it!
Ever since the entrepreneur went through a very messy, public divorce with her ex-hubby Simon in 2010, the kids haven’t been allowed on the show.
But Tamra wants to change all of that. On December 20th, a court will hear her petition to let the kids on the show!
Tamra’s request states:
“Petitioner (Simon) is acting in bad faith. When he himself was on the show, prior to our separation, he had no issue at all in consenting to the children’s participating. Now that we are separated, the Petitioner refused to allow the kids to partake and has directly threatened legal action against the network… Petitioner has threatened to sue the network that runs my show, should they allow the children to participate in the show though said participation shall fall within my periods of physical custody. These threats have prevented me from exercising legal control over the minor children during my periods of physical custody as the network will not allow the minor children to participate in the filming of the Series due to the Petitioner’s previous threats, without either the Petitioner’s execution of a consent form or finding of this court that I may consent independently. The network will not allow our children to participate despite my consent. I have requested that the Petitioner sign an appropriate consent, but he refused… I am not requesting any modification to the visitation orders and I am not proposing to infringe on any of the Petitioner’s visitation time. The times that Sophia (or any of the other children) would be filming would be during my periods of physical custody.”
Speaking of Sophia, the eight-year-old has expressed that she’d like to appear on the show, and Tamra says she’d like to be able to let her!
Tamra’s also saying that since it’s during the time the kids will be in her custody, she can let them appear on camera if she wants to!
Besides Sophia, the couple also has 15-year-old Sidney and 13-year-old Spencer.
This could be a great platform for her kids if they want to launch into business, or anything else. Maybe singing!
Regardless, we hope this gets settled without too much messiness. No need to upset the children anymore!
