On tonight's episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Barney tearfully confessed to her mother that she feared she and her husband, Simon, may be headed for divorce. She was right—he filed papers today. How servicey!

If this divorce-episode-airs-on-same-day-papers-are-filed thing reminds you of something, it should—remember the infamous "separation" episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8? Call us cynical, but doesn't the timing seem a bit convenient? After all, these are reality stars we're talking about. But we digress. Here's the clip of the end of tonight's episode, in which Tamra breaks down and spills the beans on the state of her relationship.

Hm. What to think about this? Oh, how about the fact that Tamra said "I just don't think I'm the person [Simon] wants me to be," followed by "He treats me like he doesn't trust me." We're going to go out on a limb and guess that the "person" Simon wanted her to be is someone who doesn't cheat, given that the divorce papers cite infidelity as one of the justifications for the petition. That might have something to do with the trust issues, too. Just saying.


Who would have thought that Donn and Vicki would still be going strong (WooHoo!) as Simon and Tamra's marriage bit the dust? Not us, that's for sure.
