Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney has been through a lot over the past few weeks as she endures a painful custody battle with ex-husband Simon Barney. Luckily, Tamra has been getting a lot of support from those close to her, including her RHOC co-stars. 

On May 7, Tamra took to Twitter to thank her pals for their encouraging texts. "Thank you @HeatherDubrow @LizzieRovsek @vgunvalson Brooks for the love & support text I just received U GUYS," Tamra writes. 

We love that Heather Dubrow, Vicki Gunvalson, and Lizzie Rovsek all texted Tamra during this difficult time. It's also interesting that Shannon Beador and Danielle Gregorio apparently didn't text Tamra, which suggests that perhaps Tamra isn't particularly close with those two cast newbies.

On April 15, Heather made it clear that she has Tamra's back. "@TamraBarney is an amazing Mother," Heather tweeted. "What her ex is doing is DESPICABLE."

However, the biggest surprise is the fact that Vicki's on-again, off-again boyfriend Brooks Ayers texted a supportive message to Tamra. Tamra and Brooks have not been the best of friends in the past, so it's great to see that they've put their drama behind them. 

Are you surprised that Brooks is supporting Tamra?
