Sixty two percent of viewers are on Tamra’s side and so am I by NoMoreDrama
The first season of OC I watched was the one with Fernanda and Peggy. I found Alexis thoroughly unlikable during that season – a complete hypocrite. If I remember correctly she lectured Tamra about the divorce yet she was divorced. She also has some choice words to say to Fernanda about same-sex marriage. I know this blog favors the victim, and Alexis has managed to give herself the “victim” edit, but I’ll take Tamra over Alexis any day of the week.
The other thing that makes me unsympathetic to Alexis is the context of Tamra’s party. Alexis had “quit” the show last summer claiming she was bullied; giving an interview to RumorFix saying she was done. There was a twitter battle between Heather and Tamra and Alexis, where they made it clear that she hadn’t quit – rather she was negotiating for more money and Bravo had said no. Eventually she took Bravo’s offer and returned. I remain convinced that is why we she wasn’t shown with the other ladies in the first two episode – she probably hadn’t signed her contract yet and later went back and filmed filler scenes that were spliced in.
It is not a reasonable expectation to be on a reality TV show and not be involved in drama nowadays. The problem is with her job, not her castmates!
If they all got along, no one would watch. Tamra knows how to make a good show for viewers. She’ll fight with Alexis for a while, and then make up with her. Vicki will be on Alexis’s side because she can’t be on Tamra’s side as long as Gretchen is there. I have no idea what role Heather is playing – but she’s is playing a role and is sure to have it all scripted out. After all, she made a two episode fight out of a bow on a cake. I still remember Heather (when she was Heather Paige Kent) from “That’s Life” and liked her in that role much better. Gretchen is with Slade and that says it all for me. I don’t think much of him. Read this interview and you’ll see why.
I’ve told you my opinions, tell me yours.
Whose side are you on?
