Real Housewives of Orange County: I'm Off Team Jeana

I was a big Jeana Keough fan throughout the course of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but that's over after this week's episode.

First of all, I think Tamra Barney did what she had to do when she called the cops on ex-husband Simon Barney. I also genuinely believe that she didn't want him arrested but feared for her children.

Jeana Keough
called and texted Tamra after Tamra called the cops, which landed Simon in jail. Simon came to Tamra's house uninvited and threw something past their son Spencer's head and towards Tamra. Jeana texted Tamra and later met with her, stating that she did the wrong thing and called the cops on Simon because she wanted drama. Jeana then played the "Tamra doesn't know what abuse is" card because she'd been in an abusive relationship.

First of all, there are many kinds of abuse and Jeana has no right to judge Tamra's situation when she's only hearing Simon's side of stories because they're close friends and Jeana trusts what Simon says.

I've definitely not been a Tamra fan throughout The Real Housewives of Orange County, especially with her antics with Gretchen, but looking back, it may have come from a place of pain from her failing relationship with Simon. Maybe...or maybe she was just a mean girl who's had some reform since then.

To help her healing, Tamra needs to stop talking to Jeana. She knows Jeana talks to the media, says mean things about her and repeats her words to Simon. She needs to cut part of the problem out of the picture, and that means cutting out Jeana.
