Alexis Bellino and the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County were recently accused of buying Twitter followers. Micah Tanous took to his own Twitter to announce that he had recently spoken with a man who claimed to have been “selling all the current #RHOC cast their Twitter followers.”
Tamra Barney immediately denied the claims — she does not buy her followers. However, it turns out that someone else appears to be buying theirs. A certain housewife’s following has been sending out red flags including unusual follower count jumps.
Rumorfix, along with some help from TwitterCounter.com, did some research and found that Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson, Gretchen Rossi, and Heather Dubrow’s following has been steadily increasing by a few hundred, or sometimes a few thousand, per week, during the off-season aka when their show is not currently airing.
However, Alexis Bellino’s following has been bouncing around like crazy. In fact, in the last two days, Alexis has gained 30,750 followers. Earlier this month, from August 1 to August 3, Alexis lost 12,754. If anyone is buying followers, it’s now clear who that housewife is.
Tamra recently got word of the new report and tweeted, “Well that tells you who’s buying fake followers! Once a fake always a fake!!!”
