Simon Texted Tamra That The Leash Slipped Out Of His Hand

Post from Radar Online.

The husband of Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney was arrested early Tuesday morning on a domestic violence charge, has learned exclusively.

Simon Barney, who is estranged from Tamra, was arrested by the Orange County, California Sheriff’s department at 12:30 am and taken into custody on $10,000 bail.

Simon and Tamra are divorcing. She will still appear on Bravo’s hit reality TV series. learned exclusively that the argument leading to the altercations was over a custody battle -- about their dog!

Tamra and Simon have been sharing custody of their small dog and he brought the dog back to her house Monday night.

“He was angry and threw the leash at her and hit her with it,” a source with knowledge of the case told exclusively.
“Their kids were in the house and started crying.
“It was a bad scene.

Tamra recently moved into a new house. She now dates Eddie Judge and her relationship with her soon-to-be-ex is often acrimonious.


But this time Simon went too far.

“The leash hit Tamra. She wasn’t sure what to do,” the source told “But she knew she couldn’t tolerate the violence. She called the cops.”

Simon apparently texted her after the incident, and after he left her house, saying that the leash slipped out of his hands.

“He knew he had a problem at that point,” the source said.

Simon was upset with Tamra because she planned a birthday party for one of their children at her new house. Even though she invited Simon, he was angry and felt the party should have been held at a “neutral” location.

Simon will be arraigned Tuesday. At that time, he is expected to enter a plea to the charge.
