UPDATE: In an exclusive statement to Us Weekly, Tamra Judge slams her ex-husband, Simon Barney, for allegedly faking her estranged daughter Sidney's scathing Facebook post.
"It's shocking and horrifying that someone would do something so vile," Judge tells Us. "I knew it wasn't my daughter. Those are not words of a 17-year-old and that was not my daughter's real Facebook page. It's very apparent who was behind it; no need to name names. Shame on you for trying to make a sad situation worse between a mother and daughter."

Tamra Judge seems convinced that her ex-husband Simon Barney is behind the scathing Facebook post attributed to her estranged daughter Sidney. After the since-deleted post went viral on Friday, Oct. 23, the Real Housewives of Orange County star tweeted that Sidney didn’t write the post, and appeared to hint that her ex was to blame.
“I can guarantee she did not write it. I think we all know who did,” Judge tweeted. In the post attributed to the 17-year-old, Judge is accused of being mentally and verbally abusive towards Sidney.
"I try not to talk about personal family matters with my friends, but I was made aware that my mother was talking about me and discussing our personal family matters on the show again," the post read. "At this point I think it is necessary to tell the truth since she does not know how to tell the truth. The reason I do not live with my mother is not because of my dad, it is because she is mentally/verbally abusive and not a mother to me."
The post continued: “If she really wanted me back in her life, she would have taken responsibility and changed two years ago when I told [her] the first time what was causing our relationship to suffer. Obviously, I am just another story line that feeds her fame and her wallet.”
Judge revealed that Sidney chose to live with Barney during part one of The Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion special, explaining in between tears that she finally wanted to discuss it, as she’s sick of Barney controlling her. She also claimed that Barney has essentially brainwashed Sidney.
As fans are well aware, Judge and Barney have been engrossed in a nasty custody battle for years. Following their 2010 divorce, the Bravo star wed current husband Eddie Judge in June 2013.
