Looks like the entire cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County made it to the June 5 reunion taping after all. We here at Wetpaint Entertainment had been hearing that Alexis Bellino, still reeling from the cast trip to Costa Rica, was undecided about going right up until the last minute. Now we’re told that, in the end, she WAS in attendance.
“At the end of the day, Alexis is still very hurt but she had made a commitment to attend the reunion and she wanted to keep it,” a source tells us. “So she went and said her piece. She addressed what she believed was a severe case of bullying on that trip.”
And although Alexis exchanged sharp words with everyone else in the cast, she had an ally in Vicki Gunvalson. “Vicki really had her back,” the source continues. “They’ve developed a pretty strong friendship at this point. Off-camera, I know they’ve been hanging out quite a bit lately.”
Unfortunately, Alexis’ friendship with former BFF Gretchen isn’t faring as well. “Their relationship is pretty strained. At this point, I don’t know if it will recover.”
