Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is clearly hurting after her tense drama last week with ex-husband Simon Barney over the custody of their children. Now, Tamra is sharing her opinions about the family's issues.

Tamra writes in her Bravo blog that Simon claiming that she is a neglectful mother has been very tough. "I would like to start my blog by saying this has been the most devastating week of my family's life, and I want to thank my family, friends, therapist, fans, and complete strangers for their support," she writes.

"My children are my life, and I love and cherish them with all my heart," Tamra continues. "I believe that divorced children should have both parents in their lives. I have always told the children that it would be great if their dad could live right across the street so they could see us both every day. It's unfortunate that he doesn't feel the same way."

Tamra also addresses Heather Dubrow's concern that Tamra shouldn't want to have a kid with Eddie just because she can't always be with her other children. "I want to share with [Eddie] the love of a baby and not the replacement of my kids when they are at their dad's house," Tamra explains. 

Our hearts go out to Tamra during this very tough time, and we hope that she and Simon can work out a compromise.
