And the epidemic of reality stars getting into trouble with the law continues today. Next up in the bad behavior-off is Real Housewives of the O.C.’s Tamra Barney’s ex husband, Simon, whom allegedly threw a dog leash at her.
Here’s what happened:
“Apparently Simon went to his ex-wife’s home to return the dog he was watching,” Orange County, Calif., sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino told PEOPLE. “According to the victim, he threw a retractable dog leash at her, she lifted her arm in a defensive move, and it struck her wrist.”
Tamra and Simon are not officially divorced yet but filed papers earlier this year. After this incident, I’m doubting there is any hope for reconciliation.
Simon was arrested for domestic violence and will face arraignment Tuesday. There is also an emergency protective order against him.
