Gretchen feels played by the way Tamra handled the Alexis situation and won't have people make false accusations.

on Jul 1, 2013

Now I want to address a ridiculous question I keep getting asked on social media which is: “Now that it seems like the tables have turned with Tamra again, are you sad you dumped Alexis for Tamra?” Well let’s get something straight: I never dumped anyone for anyone. Each of my relationships with the women has nothing to do with another friendship that I might or might not have. It is simply based off my experience with that individual. I choose to step back from the friendship with Alexis for many reasons, none of which had anything to do with Tamra or my friendship with her. Alexis and my relationship will not be dependent on whether I am friends with someone or not. It will be dependent on her and I working out our differences, end of story.

I do not regret trusting Tamra again and building a friendship -- because I had to in order to try and move forward with her. I learned a lot more about her and why she does the things she does this season, a lot of which I realized has nothing to do with me. So honestly that has been helpful. I would have never known those things had we not gotten close enough for her to feel like she could share it with me. I have wanted nothing but the best for Tamra and I was so disheartened to hear what she had struggled with most of her life. However in a strange way it sincerely helped understand her better and helped me not take things so personally.

I do not regret stepping back from the friendship with Alexis because I needed to for my own heart to heal from some things I have never spoke about on camera that happened between us. Of course I am sad it went so south with us, and I hate ever losing any friendship because it is never easy on my heart, but it was what was best for me at the time.
