Tamra Judge says her relationship with daughter Sidney Barney is improving after nearly a decade of being estranged.
“Good, I actually saw her at Sophia’s graduation, and things were nice,” the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star said when asked about their relationship on Wednesday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
Judge shared that her other daughter, Sophia Barney, graduated from San Juan Hills High School in California last week.
“She did it! So proud of you Sophia ❤️ #classof2023 #graduation #mygirl,” Judge, 55, captioned a video montage of the big day via Instagram.
Judge first discussed her 24-year-old daughter’s estrangement on the Season 10 reunion of “RHOC” in 2015. At the time, she revealed that they had not spoken in two years since her tumultuous divorce from ex-husband, Simon Barney, in 2011.
The Bravolebrity previously gave an update on their relationship after her ex-husband was diagnosed with stage 3 throat cancer in 2020.
“We have all reunited,” Judge responded to a fan via Instagram in March 2020, when asked if Sidney “talks” to her.
Can’t get enough ‘Real Housewives?’
Judge and her daughter have had a complicated relationship over the years, but the two briefly reconnected in 2017 for her high school graduation.
The bond sadly didn’t last long, as Sidney posted a lengthy message to Facebook blasting her mom for sharing the reunion on Instagram.
“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. But Again breaking her promises as per usual, she puts herself, her fame, her reputation, and her bank account before me,” Sidney wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post from August 2017.
Judge continued to remain hopeful that they would make up one day and told Entertainment Tonight in November 2017 that she “know[s] it’s gonna turn out really well.”
The “Two Ts in a Pod” co-host also shares son Spencer, 22, and daughter Sophia, 17, with Simon. Judge also is mom to son Ryan Vieth, 37, from her brief marriage to Darren Vieth.
