Alexis Bellino: Gretchen's Pity Party Didn't Work

The RHOC star reflects on Gretchen Rossi's attempt to stir the pot.

Shopping for a wedding dresses is usually a joyous, celebratory occasion but on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Barney’s outing was not without drama. The bride-to-be had invited the gals to come along, including her newish friend Alexis Bellino.

Unfortunately, Alexis was unable to join the girls for a limo joyride to the store. And Gretchen Rossi seized the opportunity to stir the pot, telling Tamra she wouldn't go dress shopping if Alexis showed up. (Confused? Stay with us.) But Alexis did—and Vicki Gunvalson pulled her aside to share what Gretchen had said.

Naturally, Alexis was hurt. "When Vicki pulled me aside and said that Gretchen said she wasn't going to come if I attended, I got a little angry inside," she writes in her latest blog post. "But there is a time and a place to act on it. This day was about Tamra, and bottom line, Tamra chose to invite me in the end...so Gretchen's little pity party didn't work. That was enough for me."

Despite their rift, Alexis rose above the fracas and maintained her composure. And she's thankful that Tamra chose not to get in the middle. "When I was leaving, I wanted to pull Tamra aside and thank her for choosing to invite me," she writes. "It showed me she truly was trying to move forward with our friendship. She had the added stress of being given an ultimatum, and she chose me. HUGE!"

Do you think Gretchen ruined Tamra's day of wedding dress shopping? What would you have done? Tell us in the comments and watch the clip of the RHOC girls shopping for dresses.
