The original Housewives are back, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! In her latest Bravo blog, Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino weighed in on Season 7’s relatively calm — at least by Housewives standards — first episode.
First, Alexis admits she had “mixed emotions” about notorious frenemies Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney having a little “love lunch,” saying it seemed to come out of nowhere. Regardless, Alexis says she was happy they made up! She writes: “I thought, ‘Oh good, less tension now and for once maybe we can all get along.”
But this is Orange County we’re talking about. “OK, OK, I couldn't be more wrong! LOL!” Alexis admits.
Another focal point of the episode was Peggy Tanous and Tamra’s conversation before Vicki Gunvalson’s party: It involved Alexis’ husband Jim — who the ladies recently found out had dated Peggy in the past — and the size of his package!
How did Alexis feel about the other women gabbing about her guy’s manly bits? She wasn’t thrilled, but she wasn’t surprised, either. “The Peggy/Tamra conversation was totally vulgar (but what's new?),” she writes. “The only thing Peggy's embarrassed about is the fact that Jim dumped her. Why doesn't she just stop talking about him? He sure doesn't talk about her. And that's all I have to say about that.” It’s probably good policy for a husband not to talk about his exes to his wife. Just sayin’.
The ladies also joked that the leggy blonde would be intimidated by new cast mate Heather Dubrow. Not so much. Alexis only had kind words to say about the brunette beauty in her blog: “When I first met her I thought she was kind,” Alexis writes.
When you first met her, huh? Maybe there’s some drama between the two after all!
