The mother-daughter bond between Tamra Judge and her 17-year-old daughter Sidney is still broken and possibly beyond repair.
The "Real Housewives of Orange County" star will now share her experience, taking part in a documentary to explain what it's like to essentially lose your own flesh and blood. "Lose" is probably not the correct in her in her mind though, as it implies that something can be found. The word she uses to describe their relationship is more permanent.
On May 27, Tamra shared a photo to Instagram which showed her staring seriously into the camera lens, while holding a piece of paper with '#Erased Mom' written across it.
"Erasing family is a documentary in the making that will show how family court #erase loving parents after #divorce causing #parentalalienation and #familybondobstruction," she captioned the snap. "If you are a child of alienation or a parent being alienated please visit their Facebook @erasingfamily & www.ErasingFamily.org #iwillnevergiveuponyou. #protectourchildren."
Last year, Tamra revealed that she never sees her daughter, attributing the alienation as result of her divorce from her ex husband Simon. The couple had a nasty divorce in 2011 which eventually ended with him getting full custody over Sidney, the couple's oldest child. They share custody over their other two kids, Spencer, 15, and Sophia, 10.
During a RHOC reunion show last October, Tamra was emotional in speaking about her daughter.
"She basically left home that day and two years later has not come back," she said. "I went to court to get her help - and [Simon] fought me not to get her help. And he won. The judge said, ''She's 17, she can choose who she wants to live with'' - and that's it."
Sidney seemed to be far less emotional about the situation.
"I try not to talk about personal family matters with my friends, but I was made aware that my mother was talking about me and discussing our personal family matters on the show again," she said after Tamra's comments on Facebook. "At this point I think it is necessary to tell the truth since she does not know how to tell the truth."
The teen called her mother's behavior "embarrassing" and said that all she wants in money and fame by continuing to discuss their fractured relationship.
"Clearly she hasn't followed through with anything that would have made me go back to her house. After telling her this for two years in [counseling], she still hasn't recognized that these problems are between her and I and continues to make this about my father and her."
