Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney and ex-husband Simon Barney have been exchanging harsh words lately, with Simon alleging that Tamra has neglected their children. Now, Tamra's oldest son, Ryan Vieth, is defending his mom and slamming Simon. 

Ryan  whose dad is Tamra's first husband, Darren Vieth  writes on Facebook that there is no truth to Simon's claims. "I will NOT allow this piece of st Simon Barney to do this to my mother," Ryan writes. "I lived with this man growing up, I witnessed firsthand what a controlling bastard he is. It’s his way or no way!"

"I watched him verbally beat her down many times," he continues. "He caused so many problem between me and my mom, and now he is doing it with my sister Sidney. He verbally abused both of us their entire relationship. That’s why I moved out at 18. Bottom line, He can’t stand to see my mom happy with Eddie." He adds that Simon doesn't actually want full custody but "just wants to hurt my mom."

It's interesting to read Ryan's thoughts on the drama, and it's nice to see that he's supporting his mom, given that they have had their issues in the past. We continue to hope that Tamra and Simon can put their differences aside for the sake of their kids. 

How do you feel about Ryan's comments?
