62% Of Viewers Say They’re on Tamra Barney’s Side- NOT Alexis Bellino’s

Tamra Barney has been getting a LOT of flack on twitter after last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Since the episode, she has been called a bully on the social network by a multitude of people. In addition, she was on Watch What Happens Live and the other guest, Dr. Venus Nicolino, insinuated that Tamra (and the other girls) DID bully Alexis. Not only because I am friendly with Tamra did I think this was ridiculous, but I also thought it was ridiculous for another reason- a bully, by definition, is: “a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.” (Google.com dictionary). Not only did Tamra not use her “power” to intimidate Alexis, but Alexis PUT herself in this situation by coming back to a reality show and showing up to a party she knew she was not exactly welcome at. Who could blame Tamra? Alexis and Jim threatened (in the media, at least) to sue Tamra for calling Alexis “Jesus Jugs” on the reunion last season. Who would want a person who threatened to sue you at their private party?

Regardless, it is interesting that Bravo TV did a poll and 62% of viewers say they are on Tamra’s side. This leads us to wonder- are 62% of RHOC’s viewers bullies, or are 38% just lacking common sense? Let us know in the comments!
