Some of the biggest drama during last season's Real Housewives of Orange County reunion happened with someone who wasn't even there. Andy Cohen read aloud an email from Alexis Bellino to the group, which criticized Tamra Judge's newfound faith in Christianity.
The RHOC alum felt that "a mockery" was "being made of my savior" since Tamra had antagonized her for being religious in the past. "The greatest part of a walk with God is that he loves you where you are; you don't need to be perfect," Alexis' email said. "However, that doesn't give you a hall pass to become baptized and then continue your old, unkind, and manipulative ways."
Alexis' email shocked Tamra's castmates, but she didn't hold back in her response to Alexis. "She's the type of Christian that gives Christians a bad name," Tamra said during the reunion. "All I can say to her is, I'm sorry you feel the way you do, I will pray for you, and this is my journey, not hers. She has no idea what's going on. And if she was a good Christian, she probably would not be judging me right now."
Taking all of that into consideration, you would think it would be mighty awkward the next time Tamra and Alexis ran into each other. Well, they did just that at one of Andy and Anderson Cooper's AC2 shows in Orange County in March when Tamra happened to be seated near Alexis.
However, it sounds like their interaction was anything but icy. "You know what? It was really good. It was kind of a nice situation where she sat in front of me and she turned to me and she said, 'I didn't mean to come off bad. I'm very happy for you.' And I just felt like there's a reason for everything, for her sitting in front of me," Tamra told Andy of the encounter during Monday night's Watch What Happens Live. "You know, it was just really sweet, actually. It came out really nice."
And if these photos are any indication, it looks like Tamra and Alexis had an amazing time at the show, regardless of whatever happened between them in the past.
