Real Housewives of Orange County Ladies Buying Twitter Followers?!

If you could guess which Real Housewife of Orange County would you peg to PAY for Twitter Followers? Ha! Accoring to former house husband Micah Tanous, Peggy’s husband, some of the wives may be paying to look more popular than they actually are!

Micah tweeted, “I just answered a call from the company that is SELLING all the current #RHOC cast their Twitter followers, What a F’ing Joke! Fake likes!?! Current cast members just got pissed I tweeted that… Too funny. Oh god, what do you think these $2500 “PR” agents that promise “social media marketing” are doing. The software only costs $50!”

It’s hard to believe someone would be desperate enough to BUY followers, so rumorfix.com took a look at twitter counter to see some results, take a look:

Alexis took to twitter to respond to Micah’s accusations, “Beyond crazy. I wouldn’t know the 1st thing about this & would never want fake fans following me.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
