When Tamra Barney threw Alexis Bellino out of her gym opening party in Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, Episode 4, it was the “Get the f**k out” heard round the world.
But now, Tamra says she’s done being a mean girl. In Season 8, Episode 10, Tamra sat down with Alexis and Lydia McLaughlin for a girls’ lunch. Alexis is nervous from the get go, confused about why Tamra wants to meet up with her.
But soon, it becomes clear Tamra feels badly about what happened at her party.
“When I walked out, I heard you in the car,” she tells Alexis. Flashback to Alexis crying to Lydia and Vicki Gunvalson about having to go on Xanax because of the anxiety she suffered from the Costa Rica trip in Season 7. “I didn't realize at the moment the impact that it would have on me right now. As a human being, I could feel the pain in your voice.”
Alexis, trying to hold back tears, tells Tamra, “It was never my intention to cause any anger or pain during for anyone at the party.”
But ultimately Alexis Bellino feels relief for finally being able to bury the hatchet with Tamra Barney.
“I could cry for days,” Alexis says. “I never did expect to hear this. I feel like she’s truly sorry, so it feels really good.”
Tamra tells the camera, “I don’t wanna be the mean girl.”
What did you think of Tamra’s apology to Alexis?
