RHOC’s Tamra Judge Responds to Daughter’s Abuse Accusations: I Would NEVER Abuse Her! (UPDATE)
UPDATE (8/10/2017 at 10:25 a.m. ET)
RHOC’s Tamra Judge is responding to her estranged daughter, Sidney Barney’s, recent Facebook post blasting her as a negligent mother.
Instead of clapping back with equal venom, the 49-year-old reality star simply denied accusations that she was abusive or neglectful, according to HollywoodLife.
“I love my daughter and I would NEVER abuse, hurt or neglect her in any way. I ask that you do not send Sidney negative messages or comments. Direct them at me if you need to. Thank you for all your love and support."

Original story (8/9/17 at 9:20 a.m. ET):
The rant dismissed her mother’s reality show as nonsense while getting real about their tumultuous relationship as mother and daughter.
“I want to start by clearing some things up as my mother continues to talk about me despite me requesting her to stop speaking of me publically [sic] as I don’t want to be associated with her or the show.”
This could possibly be in reference to the RHOC Season 10 reunion where the 49-year-old revealed that she hadn’t seen her daughter in two years, and that she’d been living with ex-husband, Simon Barney.
Sidney shares in the post that she moved in with Simon because of her mother’s behavior.
“I realized what [Tamra] was doing along with other things that were toxic.”
She went on to call the reality star “the true parent alienator.”
The 18-year-old also accused her mother of being neglectful and abusive.
“The reasons I left my mother’s house are that she was neglectful (leaving us at home with no food or simply ignoring us entirely), she constantly put herself first and the biggest reason was that she was mentally and emotionally abusive.
"She was no mother to me.”
Sidney claims her father’s request to allow Tamra to attend her high school graduation was the only reason she was allowed to come.
Instead of enjoying the moment, the actress posted photos from the ceremony after promising the family she wouldn’t.
“After I graduated she posted a photo of me and shared it with her one million followers knowing that it would get picked up by the press.
“The one thing I asked and have been asking for 4 years now has been to not talk about me because I don’t want to be in the spotlight,” the teenager continued.
“But Again breaking her promises as per usual, she puts herself, her fame, her reputation, and her bank account before me.”
This is a far cry from Tamra’s thoughts on their relationship, as she told Bravo that she and Sidney were “making progress.”
“We’re making progress. Every day is a step forward and we’re just really trying to bring the family back together.”
Former cast mate Gretchen Rossi inserted herself into the family feud by commenting on the post, "You have no idea how your brave words are helping so many who have been wronged by your mother's manipulation and lies as well...so thank you for being brave enough to speak the truth.
Tamra quickly responded, calling her former rival a "troll" and a "piece of s-t."
"I usually don't give this troll any attention because it's exactly what she wants. But after years of her bashing me and now reaching out to my daughter I must say. Gretchen you are the biggest piece of s-t I've ever met. Move on with your sad empty childless life and stay out of mine you thirsty wannabe."
"You are obsessed with my life and I haven't even seen or spoke to you in 5 years."
On a lighter note, Tamra renewed her vows to husband Eddie just one day after Sidney's rant.
The couple married June 15, 2013.
