Will Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino Ever Be Friends? Tamra Says…
We had a feeling Tamra Barney’s party in Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 4 was going to be the setting for some high drama. But no one was prepared for the level of shouting directed at poor Alexis Bellino, who was literally run out of the party by Tamra.
After a scene like that, we have a hard time believing these two women will ever break bread at the same table again but apparently Tamra is full of surprises.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star stopped by Watch What Happens Live to chat about the explosive episode and answer questions from viewers.
One caller wanted to know why Tamra Barney was able to forgive Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley for the awful things they’ve said about her in the past but not Alexis.
“Gretchen and I came to a point in our friendship where a lot of things had been said and done, but the end result is we care about each other and we wanted to move forward,” Tamra said.
Host Andy Cohen asked whether we’ll see any change in her attitude toward Alexis during the season. Tamra responded coyly, “There’s definitely some movement in our friendship. I have this tough exterior, but I also have a soft spot in my heart.”
Tamra added, ”I didn't want to see Alexis hurt this season, so I do open up to her.”
