Tamra Judge Reveals Why Kelly’s Comments About Her Daughter Hurt So Much


During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week, a view asked Tamra Judge why she had such a strong reaction to Kelly Dodd’s comment about her daughter Sidney, when Tamra has talked about children of the OC before in the past.

“I apologize if I ever spoke about anybody’s kids,” Tamra said. “I mean, my situation is a very sensitive one. It’s about parental alienation. If you’ve ever witnessed it or been a victim of it, you would know. It’s a bad thing.”

“It’s hard for me to talk about. It breaks my heart,” Tamra previously told the Daily Dish. “It was something I really wanted to keep off the show, and it’s so big in my life that it’s just too hard. And I feel like at this point if I can help others go through it, because divorce and when kids separate and pick sides, it’s not uncommon. But people don’t want to talk about it because they feel like, oh they’re a failure.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    If a daughter doesn’t want to live with her mother, that says something…

      You don’t know what happened and are no one to judge. It is very personal to Tamra and anyone with eyes in their heads can see how devastated she is.

      • Ace_Orion

        Tamra is not devastated enough to discontinue to talk about her issues with her daughter on the show or the media; nor is she devasted enough to quit the show.

        She is certainly not devasted enough to cease her violent, hostile, and vulgar behavior.

    The only two people who really know are Tamra and her daughter so I’m not commenting on it one way or the other.

  • I don’t know why a viewer would ask why the comment hurt her, because it’s obvious that it would. However, on another note, her face is almost unrecognizable anymore.

    I don’t think this should be a story

  • Aunt Bee

    If anyone remembers what a controlling man Sydney’s father was, I can understand how he could alienate her against her mother.

      Simon was an extremely controlling and judgmental ASS, saw right thru that TIRD


    The kids didn’t sign up for this “show” therefore, they are off limits. Except for the adult kids, like Jeanna’s horrible older son, Tamra’s horrible older son, etc. But for the little ones? Off limits.

    I’m waiting to see the first ever tear come out of Tamra’s eyes. She makes the cry face, she gets her voice all high and shaky, but there’s never been a tear. I think she’s a reptile.

    • Aunt Bee

      I think I am still hoping the Christianity thing will finally kick because I think I am seeing a better side of her – I mean change doesn’t happen over night so I think I will give her a little more time and see what happens. Maybe tears don’t show up on plastic faces? Sorry that was my bad.

    • Krista

      Omg Deb that’s hilarious and yes, you are right, a liquid droplet has never rolled down her cheek from genuine crying. Tamra has plenty of utterly awful, low-class behavior in the vault that has certainly embarrassed her daughter. Her daughter asked Tamra to stop talking about her on the show but Tamra never stopped. Maybe that’s why the radio silence. It is difficult to feel compassion for Tamra because she seems to have none for anyone else and has viciously attacked so many people over the years.

    “It was something I really wanted to keep off the show,…”

    Tamra has expended zero effort at keeping her issues involving her child off the show.

    The truth hurts & this truth hit home for Tamara.
