As viewers know, it's been a wild ride for Tamra Judge and Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino. Alexis left the show after Season 8, but her opinion was heard loud and clear during the RHOC Season 10 reunion, when she sent in an email criticizing Tamra's decision to get baptized. Fans saw that moment during Part 1 (clip below)...
But what they didn't see was a text exchange Tamra and Alexis had during the taping. "I wanted to reach out to her as a fellow Christian and just say to her, well I'll tell you what I said," Tamra shared of her decision to contact Alexis during the taping. "I said, 'As a Christian, I'm confused on your judgement. I would think you would be uplifting and encouraging of my decision. I have also learned that just because you're a Christian doesn't mean that you are perfect, so I forgive you. As you know, as a new Christian, it's an amazing journey and I now see what you were so excited to share on the show.... I'm sorry for any pain that I caused you and I truly wish you nothing but a blessed life. Maybe one day we could sit down and talk.' And then I put Luke 6:37, basically, 'Thou shall not judge.'"
Since Part 1 aired, Alexis has since apologized for the email. "I can see how my email might have come came across judgmental last night on RHOC, and I'm sorry about that, that was not my heart," she wrote on Tuesday. "I was not trying to judge Tamra, I just wanted to make sure this was all coming from a good place, so please do not judge me. The Bible is clear that we are to hold each other accountable as sisters in Christ. I am imperfect and human, but I am steadfast in my faith and the Lord laid this conviction on my heart."
Part 2 of the RHOC reunion airs Monday, October 26 at 9/8c. Check out a preview below.
