Sorry, Vicki Gunvalson, it may take awhile before you get a friendship bracelet, too. "I’m definitely close with Vicki. That’s not a façade," The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino tells RadarOnline but adds, "It’s been slow."
Throwing up the yellow caution tape, Lex continues, "[Vicki] went away with me last weekend, we’re going out tonight, we’re taking baby steps and we’re both very cautious.
We’re not, ‘Oh, best friends! Let’s call each other and get on the phone right now. You’re my best friend. I’ll talk to you five times a day!’ It’s not like that. We’re very guarded and we were realistic in the fact that one of us could get hurt. I think both her and I are just trying to protect ourselves."
While they’re not flipping from frenemies to besties in a blink (ahem Gretchen and Tamra), Alexis explains, "Vicki and I really do truly love each other as people and Brooks is a very nice guy. The Brooks that Jim and I know seems to be a very loving, supportive boyfriend to Vicki and that’s all that matters."
Will this friendship survive the finale? Make sure you tune in tonight for the drama-filled episode.
viki needs to rethink her boyfiend if your kids see something wrong must likely there is.... you should never give up your loved ones for a parter . but i guess some people who think they know best need to learn the hard way too. stay the indepented woman i know you are vikki........
Alexis, hang in there, hopefully Bravo will get rid of Tamra the mean girl and all her followers, not sure what is up with Gretchen, she seems scared of her and has sure changed from the cute fun girl she was before she was bff with Tamra.
If I was you and Vicki I would be cautious of all the other phoneys. I mean Gretchen becomes friends with Tamra and throws your relationship under the bus. And Tamra throws Vicki under the bus. These two are nothing but shallow people.
Tamra was in the wrong joining the table with Jim and Terry. It was none of her business. I agree with Jim, a lunch date would have been a better time to have the discussion. Stay clear of Tamra, she loves conflict! Please keep Sarah off the camera, I would have asked her to leave my party as well.
After tonight's show, I am absolutely appalled at Tamra. She was my favorite in every other season. This season she took a turn for the worst! She is a barbarian!As far as Vicki and Tamra's friendship go, let em be. They both have serious issues at hand. Vicki's jealous and has 5th grade issues with Tamra befriending Gretchen. Then...it's not OK for Tamra to have concerns and issues with Vicki and Alexis' friendship. And don't lie Vicki, You befriended Alexis in spite of Tamra!! The episode tonight ws beyond intense and I was stressed out watching! Was anyone else???
