This article is about mobbing in relation to human bullying behaviour. For mobbing as an antipredatory animal behaviour, see Mobbing (animal behavior). For mobbing as a crime in Scots law, see Mobbing (Scots law).

Mobbing in the context of human beings means bullying of an individual by a group in any context, such as a family, school, workplace, neighborhood, or community.

When it occurs as emotional abuse in the workplace, such as "ganging up" by co-workers, subordinates or superiors, to force someone out of the workplace through rumor, innuendo, intimidation, humiliation, discrediting, and isolation, it is also referred to as malicious, nonsexual, nonracial, general harassment.[1]

Bullying is the use of force or coercion to abuse or intimidate others. The behavior can be habitual and involve an imbalance of social or physical power. It can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion and may be directed repeatedly towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability.[2][3] If bullying is done by a group, it is called mobbing. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "target".

Bullying can be defined in many different ways. The UK currently has no legal definition of bullying,[4] while some U.S. states have laws against it.[5] Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse – emotional, verbal, and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as intimidation.

Bullying ranges from simple one-on-one bullying to more complex bullying in which the bully may have one or more "lieutenants" who may seem to be willing to assist the primary bully in his or her bullying activities. Bullying in school and the workplace is also referred to as peer abuse.[6] Robert W. Fuller has analyzed bullying in the context of rankism.

A bullying culture can develop in any context in which human beings interact with each other. This includes school, church, family, the workplace, home, and neighborhoods

I like Vicki's son-in-law he will not be easily manipulated by Vicki.  If Vicki wants Brooks...that is her choice, but she manipulated the whole set up with them moving in there in hopes of having it all.  Briana support your husband move out with your family and keep your baby away from anytime with that conArist.  If you she leavs the baby with Vicki, Vicki will have Brooks being called granda da.  I won't be suprised if Vicki's begins to draw a wedge between her daughter and her husband so that she can have full control over the baby.

I agree with Heather, et al about Alexis being phoney.  I get what they are trying to convey, they may not be going about it the correct way, they are trying to give Alexis a rude awakening that she does not want to see.  Just because Alexis says she is being bullied, doesn't mean she is being bullied. It is sad to see that so many people who hear the word bully automatically jump on board without seeing the full truth...Tamara, Heather and Gretchen "Did Not Bully Alexis".  Alexis does not want to take a stand on what is reality and what is a lie.  Like Lydia said, one minute she is talking about the so called bullying and on the next hand something likethat she doesn't care because Jesus is on her side.  The truth is Who is Heather? Materialisic or Christ like (fake boobs is not accepting the body that God gave you, but embracing all things worldly).  So for her to say she is bein bullied, it must be the opposite.  She doesn't know what is truth!!

I almost forgot the biggest creeper, Vicky. She knew what would happen if she brought Alexis. Vicky knows how twisted up Tammara is. That's why she set it up by encouraging Tammara to have a fancy expensive diner (at a gym) and then brought Alexis. That's why Vicky stirred things up as soon as they all sat down. Tamara deserves it (special glasses for Heather and Gretchen were designed to hurt Vicky) but Alexis doesn't. Funny thing, the person who started this phony crap with Alexis was Heathers big mouth husband and Heather can barely tolerate anything he says!

It is amazing to me that Heather, Tammara and Gretchen can't see that they are bullying Alexis. What Kim Zolciak's daughter Bree is going through, is EXACTLY what those three bully's are doing to Alexis! I don't need Alexis to tell me that you hags are bullying Alexis, I can see it for myself. I would never permit my children to treat someone that way and you should know better. The whole thing reminds me of Vickys divorce party when Tamara was screaming at Jeanna, " Nobody wants you here. Just leave!" Tamara has attacked Gretchen, Slade, Brookes, Jeanna, Alexis and her husband Jim, Lynn and her ex-husband. I'm sure there were more those are the ones that are on the top of my head. It only took a few minutes to come up with those names, just sayin'.....

Tamara and Heather are so transparent with their phony smiles and we really like you new girl sh$t, they're sizing her up and she's falling for their antics. Lydia says she's Alexis friend yet she sits there spilling the beans about how she feels Alexis is wrong for saying those two along with Gretchen are bullies. IMO, Lydia is not Alexis's friend I believe she's trying to fit in where she can get in and if that means joining the MEAN GIRLS group, then that what she's going to do to keep the heat off of her.....Better be careful Lydia, they'll turn on you too someday.

Glad I took the time to watch the preview so I don't waste an hour of my time watching more of the same witchiness.  I wouldn't want to be around Tamra, Heather and even Lydia now, and I certainly don't want to fund their actions by tuning in.

A true friend would have shut the conversation down when Tamra and Heather wanted to talk about Alexis.  A true friend would've kept her conversation with Alexis to herself instead of sharing it with individuals she knows "hates" Alexis.  Lydia is not a true friend and Alexis should keep her guard up around her.

I believe that in Matthew 18:21-22 Jesus is saying that we should forgive people EACH time they do wrong against us. As He forgave us of our many sins we should forgive others for the things that they do towards us. I also believe that on our own THIS is impossible. However, with Christ ALL things ARE possible. I do NOT think that this means that you have to continually put yourself in the middle of the storm. I will say that as I watched, BEFORE reading her blog, I saw it like that she had said no to going. I even saw it like she thought it would be crazy to put herself in that situation again. But she saw Vicki felt strongly about her accompanying her and she had hopes that Tamra saying that she could come was a positive sign. But I think if they do not welcome her that she should shake the dust from her feet. And have her time on camera be with her family and with Vicki and Lydia.

  I'm kind of thinking after seeing a peek at next week's episode that instead of Lydia playing both sides that she just wants the other ladies to see who Christ in us really is. NOT that Alexis doesn't truly know Him but she does at times lead with her feelings over what she needs to rest in. 

  That's how it seems to me so far anyway... : )

 @RvaViewer I find it interesting how Heather and Tamara say that Alexis should just admit how she is however they both are blind to their actions.  They are very nasty, vicious gossipy women.  My mother always told me to keep my distance from women like that, they are not capable of friendship and rarely honest.  Tamara once said she listens to what Eddie says because it is said in love, well I'm wondering why on earth they think Alexis should or would ever take what they had to say in Costa Rica to heart.  It definitely wasn't said in any kind of love or caring and it was coming from women who have made it painfully clear that they have destain for Alexis.  Maybe Tamara and Heather should take note of the verse in the Bible that says to be careful of taking the stick out of someone else's eye lest you miss the log in your own.
