real housewives of orange countyIt’s easy to forget that the women on Real Housewives are real people and not characters on a show (or so they tell us). They're talked about every day, and you’ve got to wonder, how does it affect them? Are they hurt by what people say or do they blow it off and keep on being their fabulous selves?

Well, in a new video, most likely inspired by Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets," Bravo had four of The Real Housewives of Orange County stars have some fun with the mean-girl tweets they're all too familiar with. So let's see how the ladies deal with the Internet's nastiness.

Gretchen Rossi, Tamra Barney, Heather Dubrow, and Lydia McLaughlin showed off their goofy sides in the new Bravo video, which, honestly, was a breath of fresh air. As soon as I watched the clip, I was forced to remember that they are real people who feel real emotions. (However, I don't really feel bad for them. They made the choice to go on reality TV.)

Here are some of the funniest tweets from the video and how the ladies handled the pressure:

1. Gretchen Rossi

The tweet: "Gretchen forever has prom hair."

Her response: "You're damn straight, I'm always going to have prom hair and it's always going to look good, because as far as I'm concerned, I'm always the prom queen with my hair, b*tches!"

2. Tamra Barney

The tweet: "Tamra just seems like an older, meaner version of Gretchen."

Her response: "Well, f*ck you. How's that for ya?"

3. Heather Dubrow

The tweet: "Heather shouldn't wear false eyelashes. The eyelashes make her look evil."

Her response: In classic Heather fashion, she opens her eyes wide, puts on an evil face, and stares right into the camera.

4. Lydia McLaughlin

The tweet: "The new girl looks like a starving Denise Richards with a massive overbite."

Her response: "So, you think I look like Denise Richards? Awesome!"

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me ... yeah, right! These tweets are as awful as they come. These O.C. ladies are tougher than I thought they were if they can handle these verbal attacks on a daily basis.

It sure does look like the Housewives take the nasty words in stride and keep on movin’ on. I guess that’s the only way you can deal with it if you want to stay sane.
