Abstract: I review the basic concepts of the Rigidly Rotating Magnetosphere model for the circumstellar plasma distribution around the helium-strong star σ Ori E. I demonstrate that the model can furnish a good fit to the photometric, spectroscopic and magnetic variability exhibited by this star, and argue that the variability of other helium-strong stars may be amenable to a similar interpretation.
