Tamra notes her relationship with her younger daughter, Sophia, is the complete opposite of the one she has with Sidney. She says they’re “like best friends.”
“She’s my mini me,” Tamra shares. “It’s even hard for her to go to her dad’s house, just because she wants to be with me all the time. So, I just hope it stays like that. It’s hard, because divorce just brings out the worst in a family situation and the kids, really, get put in the middle.”
“We have 22 million kids that are going through this,” she notes of divorced families. “Nobody really wants to talk about this. I have neighbors that come up to me and say, ‘I’m going through the same thing. My uncle or somebody....’”
“When your kids stop talking to you, you feel like a horrible parent,” she adds. “And that’s not the case. The true victim is the child because they’re pulled. They’ve been pulled. They don’t know what to do.”
While Tamra and her ex are still navigating the ever-evolving world of co-parenting, she says she thinks she’s mastered marriage with her current husband, Eddie. They just celebrated their four-year wedding anniversary.
“It’s just so easy,” Tamra says. “Just so precious, and sweet and loving.”
