Alexis Bellino is still reeling from this season's Real Housewives of Orange County reunion, with one barb in particular packing a profound punch. "She really shouldn't use the Lord's name that way," the Orange County Housewife tells Wetpaint about Tamra Barney's "Jesus Jugs" comment. "It's blasphemy. And now she's taking it to a whole new level by selling wine glasses on her website with ‘Jesus Jugs' on them to make a profit. She really shouldn't use religion to make nasty remarks about me or take the Lord's name in vain."
However, the mom of three Bellinos (hoping to make it four!) is looking to divine intervention to turn a bumpy at best season into a positive experience. "I'm now doing a lot of speaking on bullying, which I feel great about. God put me in the place I am for a reason. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger and I'm a lot stronger today than I was at the start of Season 7. So I guess, in a way, I'm thankful."
Stronger and thankful? Yes. Ready to take on Tamra, Gretchen Rossi and Heather Dubrow again? Not so fast. "The truth is, I don't know if I'm cut out for this anymore," the Missouri girl confesses. "I've been called phony, fake, mean, and hateful… I don't know if I'm cut out for such a hateful environment."
Alexis keeps the offensive going in her blog this week, declaring: "While we are on the topic of Tamra, I have to say: I can take all of her abuse towards me, and even towards my husband, but her abuse towards God is unacceptable. I have never heard someone talk the way she talks. She has no shame. Jesus Barbie was cute, but almost crossing the line -- I can take it in stride. Yet Jesus Jugs doesn't just cross the line, it catapults over it. That comment has offended Christians everywhere." Read the full post here.
Really Alexis, What do you think your doing when you write about them in your blogs ? your no better than them. it just makes you look real bad because your suppose to be a christian and a true believer in christ would'nt throw stones. You should know this by now.
Let me just say, Alexis is always preaching how christian she is, however, I think there may be something in the bible about materialistic and vanity. She is so vain and seems to always want to one up everyone. She's a beautiful woman and doesn't need to be like that, she acts like she's in high school all over again. Take a step back and think about it.
Lexie, they bearly let you speak at the reunion. they know you are stating the truth. you always comp to trying to be a better person.at the reunion you said you were not perfect.we did not here anyone els saying that.Tamra needs to leave the show.Gretchen is just a follower. heather is some what obsessed with the bellinos.it is creepie. go girl,You Alexis leave the oc so will we.
Alexis you are such a crybaby and you aren't so perfect either!! No one is perfect but Jesus!! Just get real!! Also you look stupid on that show you were on.
Good Alexis - say good bye. You use religion when is works for you. I am sure that in an angry moment you have never taken the Lord's name in vain.
To be truthful, Gretchen (had she accepted the Channel 5 job) would have run rings around you. Know yourself and know your limitations. Speaking, especially on camera is one of your limitations. Focus on your pluses - your lovely family and your successful dress line.
It is sad Lexie. the only way Tamra can get through life is if she is throwing out names and degrading a new victim each season. you my dear handled it so well. you are very confident and strong and no one can break you of who you really are. some of the other women can not handle that. remember it is better to walk alone. then walk with people that play nice to your face then stab you in the back.Your a smart cookie. you do have it figured out.have a great summer Bellinos.Bravo print for are friend Alexis.thank you.
Hi Alexis! I was shocked myself when Tamra called you "Jesus Jugs"! Even Andy was!! It didn't make any sense to call you that as well as using Jesus name in with her (what she thought was a) "cute" remark ... making fun of your religion of course! She has quite the mouth on her that Tamra! I wouldn't go back to that show if I were you. You're not nasty like some of the others can be. Don't know how this show has lasted for 7 years ... and I've watched all 7 !! I ask myself "Why do I watch this back-stabbing show???" as I medicate myself. It's the only way to get thru it after listening to Tamra! I wish you good luck in the future, Alexis, for whatever you decide to do. You have a beautiful family so whatever you do, I'm sure you will enjoy it.
Much love, Lola xo
i agree completely! you would think ladies of their age would have learned the difference between being "REAL" and being "RUDE". Alexis i must say i'm sorry to hear your leaving but i hope we will be seeing more of you in another show where your kindness can be seen for what it is. i can honestly say the fakes of the show i feel are heather, terry and tamra. Heather and her husbands patronising behaviour is repulsive.. they seem to think they have this intellectual supiriority over everyone else yet they act just as childish as the others.. Terry even more so than the women. if he had called me phoney i would expect the same reaction from my husband as Jim's. Tamra and heathers presence at the table was uncalled for, let the men speak for goodness sake. But with heather firmly wearing the trousers in her marriage its no suprise to me she doesn't get the connection between Jim ans Alexis. i hope tamra leaves so someone else can get a word in. Gretchen was my favorite housewife but watching her cross sides has shown a new light on her.. i find the friendship between tamra and gretchen the fakest.. more like keeping enemys close if you ask me ladies!!!
