The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is firing back at ex-husband Simon Barney's allegations that she is neglectful of their three children.

"I am saddened by the false stories my ex-husband has released," Tamra tells People of claims her former spouse recently made in court documents.

"He has no foundation to his allegations and in my opinion will do anything to destroy me. Unfortunately, he is hurting our children and my family in the process."

The couple (right) is divorced, and Tamra is now married to Eddie Judge (left), which you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Simon has been adamant that the couple's children not appear on the series, and he's gotten his way - but it appears his issues run deeper than that.

He alleges that "especially in recent times," Tamra Barney "has been very neglectful in her care for the children." Meaning what exactly? He says:

"This has resulted in the children not getting prompt medical care, nutritional meals, hygienic care, and deterioration in their school work and attendance."

Tamra is livid and denies every word of that statement.

Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino will be noticeably absent if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online and catch up on last night's premiere.

Suffice it to say, returning cast members Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson aren't exactly what you'd call broken up over the exile of their former co-stars.

The Season 9 opener saw Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek taking over for the departed twosome, and for Tamra and Vicki, there is no love lost.

In fact, the ladies threw major shade at their former co-stars in a live television interview Monday on NBC's TODAY, admitting they don’t miss them.

At all.

“We ran them out of the O.C.,” Tamra said, to which Kathie Lee Gifford asked if they missed them and Vicki said, “I miss Alexis. Her and I are good friends.”

The ladies of the OC are back on our televisions as The Real Housewives of Orange County season 9 kicked off last night. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney-Judge, and Heather Dubrow are joined this season by new housewives Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek.

Shannon is obsessed with all things "green" to the point that I propose a new drinking game for future episodes: take a shot every time Shannon says the word "organic."

As for Heather and the other ladies? It's been quite the off-season. Take a look at these photos from the premiere and keep reading for the recap.

Heather and Terry are building a new house after selling their previous, "too small" house for $16.4 million dollars. They're all currently living in a rental which is smaller than their old garage and the close family time is making Terry a little nutty.

The matriarch of the Dubrow clan keeps booking jobs and flew to Hawaii during the premiere to film a guest role on Hawaii Five-0. Tamra and newly divorced Vicki tagged along for a girl's trip.

The Real Housewives are known for throwing lavish parties, wearing pricey bling, and creating endless drama on Bravo.

But when they're not busy throwing drinks in each other's faces, it seems like they can be probably found on a beach or by a pool somewhere. 

And where there's a housewife and water there's probably a string bikini or a bedazzled cut-out swimsuit, too.

Don't believe us? 

We've rounded up 24 housewives who are flaunting their bikini bods ...
