“Oh my gosh — she inserts herself into everything & controls everyone. Good grief,” a person wrote on X (formerly Twitter) after mentioning how awkward was it to even see this clip. Another wrote, “She seems insecure regarding her husband. That’s why she keeps clinging to him and any woman who [stands] beside him is told to stand beside her.”

More chimed in, “So f------ bossy & insecure,” “I’m not understanding why she’s even in this shot, other than being a narcissistic control freak — she’s not one of the polo players, she’s a wife. She’s so rude to those other women it’s unbelievable.”
