In her latest blog, Team Rousey's Jessamyn Duke who charged various members of Team Tate with bullying behavior.

As you saw on this episode Team Tate pulled off what they referred to as a “prank,” where they left a figurine of The Count with a coupon for an eyebrow wax in our locker room and wrote Edmond’s name on it. Honestly, it turned my stomach. That’s not a prank; it’s an unwarranted personal attack on Coach Edmond. Pranks are supposed to be mindless and funny. That wasn’t funny or tasteful. It was hurtful and mean and what I expect from high school bullies. What a horrible example to be setting; that making fun of someone’s appearance is funny and OK. We heard that it was Dennis Hallman who did that, but if you see the episode, Miesha Tate and Bryan Caraway were involved. It was just stupid and I would hope that anyone watching the show sees the difference from pranking and bullying.

Obviously, we didn’t show Edmond, because it would have enraged him. Team Tate was just trying to get him kicked off the show and get him off focus. He was really important to our team because even though Ronda was the head coach, Edmond really ran the practices and was our main strategist. Plus, Ronda had already told Dana White that we would knock off the bulls---, so we didn’t respond. Team Tate really took advantage of the fact that we were going to stand by our word to Dana, and as a result, really tried to bully us.

gotta admit...i thought it was more of a personal attach than prank too.

Team Rousey displayed better judgement by far based on what was aired in the episode

every week we're reading pieces from team Rousey's PR team about how we're supposed to interpret what we see. I feel bullied.

I have a massive unibrow and if I don't shave it for a few weeks my GF makes fun of me. I dunno how much more of this bullying I can take. I cry myself to sleep most nights.

If anyone has shown to be closer to what a bully is, its Ronda. Slapping things out Tate's hand during a photo in the cage. Threatening to beat Tate up for smiling after a teammate won a fight and kicking the gym doors open and screaming at them Phone Post 3.0

Lol, give me a break.  A figurine is not bullying.

And after all the bullshit that dicktucker pulled, he deserves more than just a unibrow joke.

 

LET'S GO, BRO!

Ok.

Not now...

Remember when they bullied Faber by making a thong on his picture and Cruz by making him look like Eddie Munster? I wonder how those guys are holding up today after all that bullying. Phone Post

Good Lord, I'm sick to F'in death of people throwing around the word "BULLY".

BULLY, BULLY, BULLY, BULLY.

If ANYONE is the Bad guy and BULLY here is that nut job Rousey and "The Count" himself and I'm not talking about Michael Bisbing, LOL. I'm talking about Count Edmond, who has shown he's just as big a douchebag as Rousey.

It's such a shame that Rousey is so good in the Cage but DAMN, once she's out of the cage and opens her mouth, she's just a horrible little weak human-being that I wouldn't want to spend one second of my life conversing or interacting with.

Just look at her Mom, that's what Ronda will look like in 15 years or less. NUFF Said!

WAR Team TATE.

And Dennis Hallman is quickly turing out to be Da' MAN.

Go Dennis "Superman" Hallman. That guy is one top notch man. I'd want him on my side anyday. Can't wait to see him back in the UFC soon.

If that little prank really "made her stomach turn" then this girl is a bigger head-case than her bat-shit crazy coach.

This season should be the beginning of the end of TUF.

Horrible, Horrible cast.
