Dumb TV Moments of 2013
Alexis takes Xanax for her 'bullying'
Who and what: Alexis takes Xanax for her "bullying"
Where: "The Real Housewives of Orange County"
Why it was dumb: Alexis was never anyone's favorite on this show, and her biggest critics may have been the rest of the cast. Between Tamra popping off at her and Heather rolling her eyes at Alexis' raging stupidity, it started to feel a bit too easy to take pot shots at the vacant blonde. But when Alexis started whining about how the criticism of her cast mates had so debilitated her she had to start taking Xanax, well, it became much ado about the one thing we expect from this series. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen -- so it's no surprise that Alexis is leaving the cast, which may be the smartest thing she's done in years.
