Alexis Bellino admits that she should have trusted her instincts and avoided Tamra Barney's dinner party on Real Housewives of Orange County.
Alexis writes in her Bravo blog that she didn't want to attend the party, but she appreciated that Tamra had invited her, and she wanted to support Vicki.
"I put [Vicki's] feelings ahead of my better judgement, and I said I would go," she explains. "I was going to support Vicki, and I was proud of Tamra's new business."
However, Alexis now realizes that it wasn't wise to attend.
"After seeing it all play out, yes, I was stupid — capital S-T-U-P-I-D," Alexis says about thinking that the night would go smoothly. On the plus side, Alexis gets to show off her spelling skills.
For starters, Alexis thinks Vicki started the night off on a weird note.
"Vicki thanking Tamra for allowing me to come is both uncomfortable and strange, and it sends the night into a tailspin," Alexis writes.
She says that Gretchen and Heather's behavior at the party was then unexpected.
"It shocks me that Gretchen pounces on me within six seconds of Tamra and I arguing," Alexis says. "Then, Heather jumps in when I'm already trying to diffuse Tamra and Gretchen. Now looking back, I should have walked out. But I was in defense mode."
Alexis says she had mixed emotions about getting asked to leave the party.
"I was humiliated, yet so relieved to get out of that environment," Alexis adds.
Uh, aren't parties supposed to be fun?
