Tamra's ex-husband, Simon Barney, apparently decided not to let their three children appear on the three-episode Tamra's OC Wedding special that airs on Bravo in September.
Simon explains on Twitter that their kids — Sidney, 14; Spencer, 13; and Sophia, 7 — were allowed to attend the lavish wedding on June 15, but they won't appear on TV.
"I never said I didn't want my kids at her wedding," Simon explains. "Only that they were not filmed to protect them."
Simon says that the show has been trying to get him to allow their kids to appear on the show for years, but he won't budge.
"[The show's production staff] has been all over me to allow them to be filmed these last few years," Simon adds. "Trying to appeal to my ego and wallet."
However, Simon claims that not only does he not want their kids to be on Real Housewives, but the kids don't want to be on it either.
"My kids hate the show and how embarrassing it is," he says. "And they don't want to be recognized and/or associated with it."
So we won't see their kids, but they all had integral roles in the wedding. Sidney was a bridesmaid, Spencer was a groomsman, and Sophia was a flower girl.
Tamra has a 27-year-old son, Ryan, from her first marriage, and he may appear in the wedding special.
We're just glad Tamra's kids were all involved in the wedding, and we can't wait to see the footage of her beautiful day!
