Ryan Vieth, Tamra Judge’s thirty-something son, has been in trouble since we first met him on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Back when Judge and her ex-husband, Simon Barney, were still married, Vieth couldn’t get his act together and was still living at home. (In his defense, it was a pretty nice house.)
Although he finally moved out, Vieth’s troubles only escalated in 2015 when he was arrested for alleged domestic violence after reportedly fighting with his fiancée and baby mama, Sarah Rodriguez. Judge downplayed the incident on Instagram. However, she’s since admitted that Vieth and Rodriguez do indeed argue, sometimes even about her. “I have definitely been caught in the middle of Ryan and Sarah’s arguments,” Judge told Bravo in 2016.
As of September 2017, things between Vieth and Rodriguez have not improved, at least, according to Celebuzz, who published a text conversation between the two that ends with Vieth cryptically writing, “I can’t handle life right now. Take care of Ava [the couple’s daughter].” That does not sound good. It also sounds like Judge may soon have bigger fish to fry than just arguing with her husband about whether or not to give Vieth money.
