Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is definitely going through a tough situation at the moment, as she and ex-husband Simon Barney face off in a contentious legal battle. Luckily, Tamra is able to count on her parents' support. 

In divorce paperwork filed last month, Simon  who is seeking full custody of their three children  alleges that Tamra neglects their kids. Tamra denies Simon's claims, calling them "false allegations," while Tamra and Simon's 15-year-old daughter, Sidney, says Tamra is "lying about everything." Wow. 

On April 16, Tamra posted a photo on Facebook of her two youngest children, 13-year-old Spencer and 8-year-old Sophia, at a restaurant with Tamra's parents. "Thank you, Mom, for being there for me," Tamra captions the pic. "I love you so much. Families stick together through hard times."

Tamra and her mom have had their issues over the years, although they have gotten closer lately. So it's great to know that Tamra has her mom's support. 

We also love this pic because it catches us up on Tamra's kids and shows how quickly they're growing up. And we can't help but crack up at Sophia's hilarious facial expression. Too cute!

What are your thoughts on Tamra's legal drama? And are you surprised that Tamra and her mom have patched things up?
