During the Real Housewives of Orange County’s trip to Costa Rica in Season 7, Episode 17, Alexis Bellino got an earful from a few of her co-stars about her “phony” and “pretentious” personality. In her most recent Bravo blog, Alexis called the “intervention” a “bully session.” While the girls may have intended to be helpful, she felt that their approach left something to be desired. “It doesn't make these women bad people necessarily, but it does mean they made some bad choices,” Alexis writes.
What really upset her, though, is what her close friend Gretchen Rossi didn’t say. “[T]he fact that Gretchen chimed in with everyone, instead of telling them to lighten up on me, just put me over the edge,” says Alexis. “I truly thought that when those women were bullying me that Gretchen would have stepped in. I valued my friendship with her so much. She was truly one of my closest friends at that time, and I would have done ANYTHING for her. I am just hoping and praying our friendship can recover from everything that has happened this season. I love the girl.”
Gretchen claims that she tried to tell Alexis about the planned intervention ahead of time, saying, “[f]or her to act like I threw her under the bus is BS!”
In Alexis’s opinion, bullying is wrong at any age, and the other Housewives are “equally as materialistic, showy, pretentious, and ‘phony’” as they claim she is.”
