The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge has been absolutely relishing her vow renewal to husband Eddie this month.
That said, she has plenty of other things on her mind.
Denying accusations lobbed at her by estranged daughter Sidney, Judge offered more than just an update on her romantic trip to Aruba.
Tamra, 49, made her first statements directly referencing the bombshell abuse claims made by her 18-year-old, long estranged child.
“So many wonderful memories made. Although bittersweet,” Judge wrote on Instagram and Twitter, along with a broken heart emoji.
“I want to say thank you to everyone that has reached out to see if I’m okay," Tamra responded to her daughter's post, pointedly adding:
"I/We are trying our best to enjoy our vacation. Thank you to my Mom who is not taking this very well and feels the need to defend me."
"I love you Mom. I love my daughter and I would NEVER abuse, hurt or neglect her in any way,” the Bravo reality TV mainstay continued.
This past Monday, Sidney Barney went off on Judge as "no mother” to her, explaining the reasons for their ongoing rift in blunt terms.
“The reasons I left my mothers house are that she was neglectful (leaving us at home with no food or simply ignoring us entirely)," she said.
"She constantly put herself first and the biggest reason was that she was mentally and emotionally abusive,” Sidney shared.
Many who watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online and haven't seen Sidney in years have wondered why this is.
Many more who follow Tamra's life off screen are inclined to believe the teenager, though Judge takes issue with her claims.
To her credit, after defending herself, she pleaded to fans not to harass her daughter and to “direct [comments] at me if you need to.”
In her latest post, Judge attempted to protect Sidney by requesting that her fans “do not send Sidney negative messages or comments.”
The mother of four did clap back at Gretchen Rossi, whom she called a “thirsty wannabe” after the RHOC alum echoed Sidney’s criticisms.
To put it mildly, Tamra did not hold back.
"I usually don’t give this troll any attention because it’s exactly what she wants," Judge said, before absolutely unloading on her rival.
"After years of her bashing me and now reaching out to my daughter I must say. Gretchen you are the biggest piece of s--t I’ve ever met."
"Move on with your sad empty childless life and stay out of mine you thirsty wannabe. You have NO IDEA What my family is going through."
Tamra's divorce from Simon Barney was as ugly as it gets, and her relationship with Sidney has clearly become a sad casualty of this.
That doesn't mean she isn't at fault - or that her comments are appropriate - but it's a more complex situation than many fans realize.
Not that she's putting it in those terms when Gretchen inserts herself into the situation and Tamra feels she has to hit back doubly hard.
Judge absolutely burned Rossi:
"It’s just an opportunity for you to get your name in the press. #obsessedfreak. Funny you of all people should be talking about morals."
"You have none!"
