It seems that the Tamra-Simon separation is getting a messier with all the "he-said, she said" arguments going on each week. After Simon filed for divorce and blamed The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra for the end of their 11-year marriage earlier this month, Tamra broke her silence in attempt to defend herself from his allegations.

During Bravo's Watch What Happens: Live last Thursday, Tamra reiterated her previous denial that she cheated on her estranged husband Simon. "No, I did not cheat on my husband whatsoever," Barney told host Andy Cohen.

Tamra, who learned about Simon's divorce filing by reading about it online before being served, felt the need to defend herself since he was accusing her of "committing acts of disloyalty and infidelity" and for being "verbally abusive." Unfortunately, her stint on Cohen's show didn't exactly repair her already tainted reputation.

"He put 'acts of infidelity.' What does that mean?" the Real Housewives of Orange County star asked Watch What Happens: Live host Andy Cohen.

"That sounds like he's alleging that you cheated multiple times in the relationship," replied Cohen.

"Is that what you got out of it?" she asked.

"Yes -- acts of infidelity," he answered before Tamra denied the allegations.

Later in the live broadcast, Simon sent Cohen a text message requesting he "ask Tamra about the 200 plus phone calls over 12 months with her ex-boyfriend."

"Wow, well first of all it wasn't 200 phone calls -- it was 125," Tamra replied.

"No, seriously," Cohen asked.

"That's what he's accusing me of [as] 'acts of infidelity' -- because I had communications with an ex-boyfriend," Tamra said.

"And was there anything more than communication?" asked Cohen.

"No, swear to God on my children's lives," she replied.

The Real Housewives of Orange County couple, who has three children together -- 11-year-old and 4-year-old daughters and a 9-year-old son, was in the processes of selling and moving into a two-bedroom apartment before Simon officially filed for divorce. But things got "very hostile" in the their household which resulted in Tamra prematurely leaving.

"I think my husband was very hurt when I left," the Real Housewives of Orange County star explained.  "I left the house knowing we had three weeks left in our current house because we sold it.  Things were very hostile in our household and [come] New Year's Eve we had a blow up and I decided that I can't continue 2010 like this. So I chose -- which I thought was very brave -- to leave."
