Tamra Judge updates fans on estranged daughter Sidney

Tamra Judge opened up about her estranged daughter Sydney Barney on Monday.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star's relationship with her 18-year-old daughter went sour since her 2011 divorce from Sidney’s father, Simon Barney.

And even though Tamra, 50, has only seen Sydney once in three years, she is 'very hopeful' that they will reunite soon.

‘I am very hopeful, because I feel like if she is removed from [home] – she is [at college] out of state – she is on the East Coast, so just the fact that she is living on her own and thinking on her own, I think it will be really good for her.

But the family members will have to work at it. '[There’s] not a whole lot of movement between the two of us,' Tamra added. 

Things seemed to be moving in a positive direction after Sidney invited Tamra to her high school graduation in the spring.

But Sidney wrote a lengthy Facebook post in August voicing her disapproval of her mom's continued appearance on the Bravo reality show since season 3 in 2007.
