On the heels on Tamra Judge announcing she would not be returning for season 15 of 'RHOC', another revelation from her family has come to light. Judge's second husband, Simon Barney has been diagnosed with stage 3 throat cancer but it seemingly has become a blessing in disguise. Since his diagnosis, which was initially believed to be an infection back in May '19, he has reconnected with his estranged son, Spencer, 19.
"It's kind of like a new beginning for me and my family. It's really brought everyone closer together. When I told Tamra, she said she cried for like, two or three days. Things have changed with our relationship from there, in a good way. We're getting along in ways we haven't in years. And she's become close with my fiancee. And that shift carried across the board with my kids, too."
This includes former stepson, Ryan Vieth and even daughter, Sidney has reformed a bond with mom, Tamra over Simon's diagnosis. The cancer has spread to his throat, lymph nodes, and tonsils so he undergoes both chemo and radiation. He is a fighter but feels if it is time, he has lived a good life. "It's whatever my destiny is." We send him positive thoughts through this difficult time.
