The claws came out at Tamra Barney’s gym opening party in The Real Housewives of Orange County, and they were all directed at Alexis Bellino. After exchanging heated words with the other Housewives, Alexis was tossed out of the gathering by a very angry Tamra.

Taking refuge in a limo outside, Alexis insisted the other women were bullying her the same way they did in Costa Rica during Season 7.

But what exactly happened during the Costa Rica trip?

In Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7, Episode 17, the ladies decided to vacation together in  tropical paradise. But the trip quickly went sour when Tamra, Heather Dubrow, and Gretchen Rossi confronted Alexis about her “phoniness.” Needless to say, the conversation did not go very well, and Alexis left feeling bullied by the other women.

Flash forward to Season 8, Episode 5, and Alexis Bellino is feeling deja vu while at Tamra’s party. She even admitted the debacle in Costa Rica forced her to go on Xanax.

“Costa Rica blindsided me, and kind of put me into a tailspin,” says Alexis to the camera. “I did take some medication just to ease all of that.”

While Alexis continues to feel like a victim, the other Housewives aren’t buying her sob story. Whose side are you on?
