Tamra Barney has made a lot of enemies this season on The Real Housewives of Orange County, but she seemed to single out newcomer Lizzie Rovsek for a double-dose of bullying early on.

And yes, “bullying” is really the only word for it, as Tamra has stuck with the tried and true methods of the schoolyard in her effort to frighten Lizzie off.

First, Barney encouraged the other ladies to skip Lizzie’s birthday party.

Then she posted Lizzie’s phone number online. You can’t make this up.

The whole season has played out like a bad high school movie, complete with incredibly petty jealousies. (Tamra has been quoted as saying that she believes Eddie Judge wants to “do” Lizzie.)

Lizzie’s put up with a lot, but according to her latest Bravo blog entry, she draws the line at putting up with a nickname that Tamra just won’t drop:


To her credit, Lizzie has stood her ground and recently even said that she she forgives Tamra for her constant betrayals. But she can’t get past one thing.

“I am sure everyone is aware of Tamra’s nickname for me, ‘Kentucky Fried Titties,'” wrote Lizzie on the Bravo website. “It is really trashy and frankly low class.”

Lizzie goes on to describe how the nickname “touched a trigger” for her as she decided to have a breast reduction at the age of 21, when she had 34DDD breasts.

She says her breasts soon returned to their normal size, prompting her to go under the knife again. They expanded again, and Rovsek claims she’ll have another reduction after she’s done having kids.

In her blog post, she goes on to blast Barney as a “mean girl” and a “47-year-old” bully for causing her body images to re-surface.

While it’s sad to hear that anyone is struggling with body image issues, we imagine a lot of women wouldn’t mind coping with Lizzie’s particular problem.

So take that, Tamra. Sometimes, the best revenge is an awesome set of boobs.
