Tamra Barney, “I’m NOT A Bully!”


After a controversial episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County aired where Alexis Bellino claimed three of her cast mates were “bullying” her, Tamra Barney is opening up about the subject to Bravo. For the record, the definition of the verb bully is; to use strength or influence to intimidate someone; typically to force them to do something.

“When you talk about bullying, I think you are forcing someone to do something against their will,” Tamra says. “But when you’re an adult and you’re in a situation that you choose to be in… nobody is bullying you.”

“When someone is talking to you and telling you issues that they have with you… it’s not bullying,” Tamra continues. “You’re not being forced, you’re not being hurt, nobody is getting physical with you. If you don’t want to be around us then maybe it’s time to move on or maybe it’s time to reevaluate who you are.”

“When somebody gets defensive… that’s not the route you should go,” Tamra says of Alexis. “You should embrace what they are saying, even though you don’t have to agree with what they are saying, and sit on it and think about it. And she doesn’t do that.”

Do YOU agree with Tamra?
