This leash thing is pretty dumb but he's still a control-freak and she should'a dumped him YEARS ago.

to the person who said she is a gold digger because she dumped him when he lost his job.....he didn't lose his job he had a great job that he decided to leave to try owning a tequilla business....and she was very upset that he did that, it made them lose everything!

wow - seriously? getting arrested for throwing a dog leash at her?!? Have you even seen Tamra? There is no way in hell she has a dog big enough to require a leash that would cause any kind of serious harm to her - i mean don't get me wrong, I don't condone throwing anything at anyone, but there are guys that do a lot worse and aren't arrested for it - it's clear this is all for the press...

Tamra is a nut case and will stop at nothing to get him into trouble with the law. She is a bimbo and a cheap one at that. All about herself and no one else. Simon is so much better off without the loud mouth skank. Her and the biotch Vicky should become a couple like they already are, a couple of biotches from hell. Simon find you a young beautiful woman which you have never had, get your kids from this skank and be happy for a change. With her out of your life, it can happen now. Hate Tamra and Vicky. Nut jobs is all they are.

That's ridiculous. She called the police over that? And she undoubtedly caused it by being the manipulative brat that she is. Poor man is better off without her.

I'm glad she finally got what it takes to call the cops on him. He is the most horrible person and she is a victim of spousal abuse while we all watched on tv. She's not very bright and he got off on beating up on her emotionally. It was really hard to watch.

Honestly, America is one MESSED UP country. A girl, like Sammi from Jersey Shores, can PUNCH a guy in the face and get away with it while this guy throws a dog leash and it hits her WRIST so they put him in jail for it.
BTW, the point isn't that this guy is a ****bag. It's the fact that you can send someone to jail for BS like this but a woman who punches you in the face doesn't get into any legal problems. Again, America is going to hell. This country sucks.
