Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney and ex-husband Simon Barney are undergoing an ugly legal battle. Luckily, Tamra is getting support from her pal and co-star, Heather Dubrow

Simon filed divorce documents last month, alleging that Tamra neglects their children. Tamra has spoken out against the claims, maintaining that there is no truth to them. 

Now, Heather is getting Tamra's back. "@TamraBarney is an amazing Mother," Heather tweeted on April 15. "What her ex is doing is DESPICABLE."

Heather also retweeted a photo that Tamra had posted of herself holding hands with her eight-year-old daughter, Sophia. "Precious little Sophia," Heather writes about the pic.

Tamra herself has taken to Facebook this week to defend herself. "I am very saddened by my ex-husband's attempt to publicly hurt me with false allegations," she writes on April 15. "I love my children with all my heart and would never do anything to hurt them."

It's great to see that Heather and Tamra are so tight, despite any drama that might play out between them on the show. We're definitely wishing Tamra the best during this difficult time, and we hope that she and Simon can put their differences aside for the sake of their kids. 

Are you surprised that Heather is supporting Tamra?
