(CBS) - The "Real Housewives of New York" last night a meeting of the party, the issue of cyberbullying resurfaced.
The issue of cruelty, through web-which has been known to plague many preteens and teens on social networks, has been in the reality show in the form of (alleged) means tweets. "Female stars are really the poster children for cyber bullies women," says Sedgrid Lewis, developer of anti-bullying Bully block application. "During and after their presentations, they take the electronic media to attack each other."
A couple of episodes ago, New York housewife Kelly Killoren Bensimon said the husband housewife Alex McCord, Simon van Kempen (left), "means that Twitter" it. Housewife Jill Zarin said the same. We're not really sure what he said about Zarin or Bensimon on Twitter, or whether or not re-tweet something they said or just @ replied to them with something less than kind. So we look at Twitter van Kempen and found nothing like that. Van Kempen might have deleted?
"I've seen, heard and read, sometimes with horror, as Jill Zarin has slandered, defamed and slandered me and / or Alex in the last three years, but last week was really something else," said Van Kempen in a recent blog post.
"Frankly it seems absurd that more than 40 years of age, adults who are game enough to go to a reality show and voluntarily put their lives on the claim from public view" cyber-bullying "when are the critical their online behavior, "Van Kempen says.
Wife McCord (right) also denied alleged malice van Kempen Twitter.
"If it was not bad happens on Twitter, someone has picked up on it. I would have gone to Perez Hilton or TMZ or someone, but it is not happening," McCord said at the meeting. "All that happens is that kids playing professional victims and accused him of doing the things he did. "
So why are some of the housewives in a total tizzy about being victimized?
Cyberbullying is defined as "being cruel to others by sending or posting harmful material by electronic means to facilitate deliberate and repeated harassment or threats against an individual or group," says Dr. Erika vacation, co-author of "Mean Girls, Women meaner." If that is the case, after reading several blogs posts and tweets from housewives, we can conclude that most of them are guilty.
"It has unfortunately become more common to hear stories of adult women (and men) involved in cyberbullying. Women are involved in acts of cyber bullying for the same reasons that we see in children - some have difficulty manage their own difficult feelings such as anger and frustration, and as a result displace their feelings to others, "explains Holiday." With the recent advances in technology, which makes it much easier to go with this type of behavior because they have to face the person while saying things bad and evil. "
