Simon Does Not Want His Kids On The RHOOC

Simon Barney, 46, was released Tuesday from Men’s Central Jail in Santa Ana, after posting his $10,000 bail. Here’s his statement:

“There are a lot of rumors and speculation about the events of September 20th. I am confident and have faith that the truth will come out in the courts instead of the media. This incident was a setup by my ex-wife and she is already using it to make a claim for 100% custody of our children. It stems primarily from me refusing permission for our children to be filmed on her reality show, ‘Real Housewives of Orange County.’

“Recently my ex-wife and the production company have pressured me to allow the children to be filmed. I have always refused because I don’t believe it is in our children’s best interest to be exploited in this way. This has not set well with my ex-wife. If she succeeds in obtaining 100% custody, she will then be able to give permission for the children to be filmed even though I object.
“I have never been a danger to either my ex-wife or our children, as she has recently claimed. As so many people know, I love our children more than anything in the world. To me, it is tragic that any parent would go to such extreme measures as using custody to allow their children to be filmed on a reality program. I pray for my ex wife and our children all the time.”

Simon, who still faces a charge of domestic violence, did not wish to comment further. When asked if he threw the plastic, retractable leash at his wife as she has claimed, he said, “No.”

He added that he will probably appear in court next week to respond to Tamra’s charge.

On Tuesday, Tamra Barney appeared at Lamoreaux Justice Center in Orange to start the process of filing a restraining order against Simon. The two, who were depicted in three seasons of “Real Housewives of Orange County,” have three children together.
