We seem to be having our emotions toyed with these days when it comes to Tamra Judge. Earlier this year she announced that she would not be returning to Real Housewives of Orange county. And earlier this week we reported part of the reason why.
Tamra exclusively spoke with PEOPLE about Simon Barney’s battle with stage 3 throat cancer. She says, “It made me reevaluate my life.”
Tamra says, “Simon had told me about his health back in November and I was completely destroyed, I was a mess! This is the father of my children. Any ill will between the two us just vanished. My first thought was, ‘I don’t want to take my kids to their dad’s funeral.’ And my second was, ‘I don’t want to go back to the show.’ “
She continued, “The reality of it is, after Eddie’s heart condition and now Simon with cancer, it’s just very hard for me to want to go on a show where people are screaming and yelling and arguing about things that don’t even matter,” Tamra adds. “They’ve taught me that life is precious, and you don’t get that time back.”
