Alexis Bellino feels that her cast mates on “Real Housewives of Orange County” are “singling her out” when it comes to talking so much about money and materialistic things. It all started when Tamra Barney told Alexis she thinks she’s “phony” and used Heather Dubrow’s husband, Terry, as someone who agreed with that sentiment. When the women went to Costa Rica, they all thought it would be a good idea to approach Alexis about her materialistic attitude. Needless to say it didn’t go over well and Alexis strongly believes they’re being hypocrites with their designer name fashion label clothes and handbags. On the last episode of “Real Housewives of Orange County,” Alexis even left Costa Rica early. She felt betrayed by her cast mates and returned home.
“I was attacked for is something EVERY woman on the show is guilty of,” Alexis said about their love of nice things and money. “Every single person on the show does at least as much as I do. But I’m singled out and targeted.”
Gretchen Rossi and Tamra responded to the comment Vicki Gunvalson made that they’re both just jealous of Bellino because she’s a nice girl and drop-dead gorgeous.
“I don’t have any problems with Alexis,” Vicki said. “I don’t think she’s pretentious. I think a great girl. I think she’s drop-dead gorgeous, and they’re all jealous.”
Gretchen thinks that’s definitely a ” joke” for Vicki to say that……and “what is there to be jealous of?.” Tamra thinks Vicki’s claim is “laughable.”
Has too much damage been done for Alexis and the other women on “Real Housewives” to call it water under the bridge? Rumor has it Bellino may not return for season 8, but it’s just a rumor. With so much discord between her and the costars, it wouldn’t be shocking if she chose not to come back.
“Real Housewives of Orange County” airs on BRAVO Tuesday nights at 9 p.m., ET.
