RHOC alum Tamra Judge says ex husband Simon Barney has finished cancer treatment as she praises his ‘sweet’ fiancée – The Sun
RHOC alum Tamra Judge updated fans that her ex husband, Simon Barney, has recently finished cancer treatment and is “getting stronger” everyday.
The 52-year-old Bravo star also praised Simon’s fiancée, Catushia Ienna, 39, for being “sweet” and “good” to the couple’s three kids.
On Saturday, Tamra answered some personal fan questions on her Instagram Stories.
One follower asked how Simon is now doing after being diagnosed with stage 3 throat cancer in January.
“He finished treatment a few months ago and getting stronger everyday,” she answered.
The reality star continued: “He’s staying positive! We are praying he kicked cancer’s a** but we don’t know yet.”
Tamra also praised Simon’s fiancée of four years after previously feuding over their 2016 engagement.
When a fan asked if she approves of her children’s stepmom-to-be, the former RHOC star gave an honest reply.
“Yes I do! She is sweet and good to my kids,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories.
Simon, 55, was married to Tamra for 13 years before they called it quits in 2011.
The ex’s share son Spencer and daughters Sidney and Sophia together.
Tamra also has son Ryan from her relationship with Darren Vieth.
In February, Simon revealed to People he had undergone an aggressive dual treatment plan at the beginning of January which included radiation and chemotherapy.
“I’m a private person, despite what my time on reality television might say, but I wanted to speak before someone else does and uses their words, not mine,” he told the outlet.
“I think everything happens for a reason, I think your destiny is pretty much set for you, and you’re here to learn lessons. This has been a tough lesson for me.”
He went on to describe the agony of the treatment: “The process is the real bad part. It basically attacks all of your organs. You’re like poisoned. It’s been killing me."
The blonde TV star – who got hitched to Eddie Judge in 2013 – described the heartbreaking moment she found out about Simon's diagnosis: “He told me the news and we both literally started crying. I just couldn’t believe it.
"My first thought was, ‘I don’t want to take my kids to their dad’s funeral,’ and immediately, any ill feelings between the two of us just vanished," she continued to tell the outlet.
Simon also talked about the his current and ex partner becoming closer after his diagnosis.
“Tamra’s become close with my fiancée. They text each other almost every day, which at first I was very uneasy.
"Like, ‘Okay, what are they saying? Is she telling her to get rid of me?’ But they’re really both just taking care of me.
“It's funny, because now Tamra’s concerned about Catushia, making sure she's getting enough sleep, that she’s not too stressed out.
“Catushia has been such a great support to me throughout all of this. And the other day, Tamra brought me soup from a restaurant to see if I could eat – because it’s very hard to find anything to eat.
"And she had soup for Catushia too," Simon said of his modern family.
