Tamra Judge and her oldest child, daughter Sidney Barney, are still not communicating.
According to a recent clip of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Barney attended a Bible study group with her co-star, Lydia McLaughlin, and quickly broke down while chatting about her estrangement from her child.
"My situation with my daughter... I've shed so many tears," Judge explained. "I've been so emotional about it lately. I feel like, um, I can put it out of my mind for only so long and it creeps up on me. I know in my heart on my good days that God has a plan for me and Sidney."
Judge and her former husband share three children, including Sidney, Spencer and Sophie, and while Spencer lives with his mom full-time and Sophie splits her time between Judge and Barney, Sidney has chosen to live full-time with her dad.
"When you don't have your child in your life, all these days that are supposed to be joyful become depressing," Judge added in her confessional.
As the scene continues, Judge is asked how long it has been since she's seen her oldest child, who recently turned 18, and in response, the longtime reality star revealed it had been three-and-a-half years. Judge then revealed that things between her and Sidney had recently gotten a bit better and said that they had texted back and forth.
"She actually responded!" Judge proclaimed.
"I'm hopeful now. I know we are going to get back together," she concluded.
