Simon Barney was reportedly fired from his job as a car salesman at some point, and decided to take up tequila. It was apparently a good move since he always seemed to have more than enough cash to shower his wife with a plethora of lavish gifts.
Then, it got to the point where he couldn’t even afford his home. Probably wishing he could take back his exorbitant spending, Simon is most often seen on the housewives exhibiting jealousy towards Vicki who’s an independent woman, not financially struggling in this economy at all.
Vicki famously suggested to Tamra that since Simon’s tequila business was struggling, he should return to selling cars. But it seems Simon is sticking to his tequila. His website, not aesthetically pleasing, says Simon recently became an investor in El Conde Azul Tequila.
