Alexis Bellino

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra Barney got her titties (not to be confused with tits) reduced, Vicki Gunvalson ran like the devil from a white trash harlot itching for a fight. Gretchen Rossi‘s singing caused me to pause the television so I could belly laugh for approximately five minutes. And Heather Dubrow hosted a bowling party … which got quite dramatic.

Things start out with our fair maiden Tamra visiting the manor atop a hill overlooking the sea. No this isn’t Once Upon A Time, it’s still RHOC and Tamra is merely visiting Heather‘s house. She muses about the view while gulping over the sheer abundance. See, unlike the ladies of RHOBH Tamra isn’t used to such opulence or actual wealth.

Heather calms Tammie Sue down by pouring wine down her throat and then announces she is hosting a bowling and champs party. Except champs is pronounced shamps. Heather finds this to be a clever thing to do and is quite amused with herself for coming up with another unconventional party to keep the ladies on their toes. She loves mixing the up with the down and the fun with the irregular – like taking a helicopter to LA for the day, for instance. She cited that as an actual example.

Heather reveals her true motivation is not to show off her quirky, yet classy, party planning techniques but to get the girls together to mend fences. And there went the class she was anticipating – out the window, over the cliffs, and right on into the Pacific. Maybe some lifeguard will pick it up down in Juarez (if the ocean current even runs that way – geography eludes me).

Tamra gulps back her wine, smiles a tense smile, and comments that, like, Vicki and Gretchen kind of hate each other. Heather smiles, nods, and is like ‘duh, that’s the point!’ in response. Heather has the oddest smile doesn’t she? It’s like the Chesire Cat grin with no teeth? I’m not the only one seeing this, am I? Maybe I shouldn’t drink wine and watch HW?

One other small snafu – Tamra will not be able to attend. She’s getting her titties reduced that week and will be out for the count. No bowling and champers for this girl. Too bad, cause I bet Tammie Sue had a mean strike back in ’85 when she was the hook-up queen of BFE, Idaho or wherever she’s from. All big hair and bigger balls. But not quite those big bazoonkas – those came later when she became the hook-up queen of ’98 in Orange County.

Tamra and Heather talk Brooks Ayers and Vicki. Tamra, proving she’s a good friend, is worried for Vicki because she thinks Brooks is a little like a shark who smells blood in the water and is swooping in for the kill. He senses that Vicki is vulnerable and tired of her love tank running on fumes, so he’s saying anything in his power to sweet talk the little rich desperada.

Proving just that, Brooks and Vicki do lunch and he opens the date with a card. Is this man keeping Hallmark in business or what? Does Vicki need a storage unit to house all those affirmations? Does she have a special box devoted to the cards that reassure her she does not look like Miss Piggy? Vicki says Brooks wants to move here, but is worried about leaving his children behind.

Anyway, Vicki and Brooks talk their love and it’s gross and I’m glad I wasn’t eating alongside them cause I would have surely asked for a doggybag and high tailed it out of there. Then Brooks asks Vicki what assets she’s getting in the divorce from Donn. That was so awkward. You know Bravo forced him to bring that up. She’s getting the big house, the house Jeana sold her that has tanked in value because Slave‘s stuff was hogging up the garage for close to a decade, and her retirement fund. Donn gets the beach house. And the dog.

Vicki tells us their love is a beautiful, fun ride down a winding scenic road and she is so thrilled that all her tanks are full. ALL her tanks? Is she the Starship Enterprise? She has reserve fuel now? Then she admits Brooks has access to all her accounts – email, banking, off-shore savings, whatever. A fun ride indeed – Vicki’s bank account is about to be as empty as her love tank. She loves that Brooks is romantical, unlike Donn who didn’t blow the mortgage payment on greeting cards. Loser. Tamra is right – this reeks of disaster!

Heather completes a Housewives rite of passage – the speakerphone invitation. Alexis can’t come ’cause she can’t bend over due to her nose job recovery. And Gretchen‘s voicemail insists you call Slave if you want to get a hold of her. So, lemme get this straight – Slave doesn’t work for Gretch, yet he fields her calls and deals with all her requests? Cause that sounds like what a personal assistant does? Is he her Slaveretary?

Alexis Bellino can’t bend over, but she can embarrass herself on the news. Seriously – was this Fox5′s idea of a practical joke? She does her make-up in the public restroom, then rushes out on stage and flubs one of the guest’s names. I kept waiting for her to mispronounce Adriana as areola or something. Then she kept interrupting the panel – which was on kids – and treating it as her own personal therapy session.

Surely this woman is not being paid? Alexis, proving that all the peroxide hair dying has destroyed the few brain cells she ever had, reveals that she wants her own show and she is, like, totally qualified because she took a journalism class in college. First of all – she went to college? AHA! AHA HA! Yeah, Not buying that! Second of all – remember all that stuff that was supposedly removed from her sinuses? I’m pretty sure those were actually her three remaining brain cells.

And all roads apparently lead to delusion tonight, because Gretchen is in the car with Slave driving to a voice coach for her Pussycat Dolls Appearance. Didn’t you know – they’re like a world-renowned dance troupe? Anyway, she’s on the phone telling someone that she strained her vocal chords screaming at Vicki and they’ve never recovered.

At the voice lesson she cannot even muster a chord. Nor is she allowed to speak to the vocal coach because Slave keeps interrupting to explain that Gretchen shouldn’t talk cause she’s straining her voice. Who else thinks he’s just trying to shut her up? Seriously – both of them please play the silent game. For the rest of the season.

Then Gretch starts practicing her scales. And all I can say is that vocal coach’s facial expressions made last night’s episode all worth it for me. That “singing” was like an American Idol reject audition. Oh, holy it was bad. Worse than bad. It was … wow – I don’t have words.

Alexis and her king do dinner. It’s date night! So Jim Bellino ruins it by telling Alexis her job is pathetic and she should basically stay at home in rent-a-mcmansion of the week and wash dishes. Right after Alexis gets done talking about how proud she is that she helped provide for her family in a bad economy while Jim’s scamming suffered and how she is so happy they could work together; Jim reminds her that when they married they became the same flesh. Except her half of the flesh does a lot of cleaning and not a lot of bread-winning.

He then tells her that while Alexis Couture is still pretty much a joke, it can stay if she continues running it from the basement, but Fox 5 needs to go. According to him Alexis only agreed to do it because she has a hard time telling people no. Clearly she would rather be at home hard-boiling eggs. Alexis is furious and retaliates by savagely chomping her poor french fry.

Oh Jim. Remember when you swore that you were not going to appear on camera because this show made you look bad? Well, perhaps you should revisit that proclamation because once again you are looking like a misogynistic ass. Although, a part of me believes he just wants Alexis to save herself the embarrassment of further faux newscastering. Good lord – she is awful! Maybe it was goodness and kindness and love that made him tell her to quit. Or maybe he was mortified by her weekly news cameltoe and cleavage display.

Poor Alexis squeakingly admits in her ITM that she doesn’t want to be a stay-at-home mom anymore. Then she looks around to check if Jim is lurking behind her eavesdropping. You make that money girl – you need it to pay for the divorce attorney!

Tammie Sue is getting her old titties yanked out in exchange for some natural-sized boobies. She’s nervous as heck, but it’s sure as hell better than keeping the boobs Simon forced her to get. I like her style. She can wrap up the old implants and send them to Simon for Christmas. Eddie has serious concerns about these new so-called small boobs, but Tamra is resolved.

And reason no 6,476 why I wouldn’t be on a reality show: being contractually obligated to participate in post-op filming. <<shudder>> After calling Vicki, who is too busy raising money to pay for Donn‘s alimony and Brooks‘ child support working, here comes Gretchy, sucking up. Gretchen could come ’cause she has no job to speak of. I thought she wasn’t allowed to talk? She reapplies Tamra’s lipgloss, which is apparently more necessary than water, and whips out a bottle of Penis Tequila.

This week the reality stars of Bravo descended on NYC for the Bravo Upfronts and Andy Cohen’s first ever, Watch What Happens Live Bravo All-Stars Party.

The celebs have been littering Twitter with pics from the event, so we decided to round-up a few and share them here in case you missed them.

Well, oh my. In what is another case of reality being more interesting than reality TV, it seems Gretchen Rossi‘s never-ending court battle with alleged ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou will now be involving her Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars!

Here’s the backstory: Gretchen joined RHOC as the supposed fiancé of millionaire Jeff Beitzel, who was suffering from leukemia. Jeff passed away shortly after filming ended in 2008. Jay allegedly contacted Tamra Barney to spill the news that Gretchen was lying about her relationship to Jeff and using him to be on the show meanwhile he, Jay, was her real boyfriend! Whoopsie! Tamra confronted Gretchen, which began their seasons long feud.

Gretchen attempted to file a restraining order against Jay, but it was summarily dismissed. Thus began the long drawn-out court battle between Jay and Gretchen over defamation, etc. Gretchen was supposed to pay all of Jay’s legal fees after she lost her court case against him. He retaliated with a defamation lawsuit, and she filed a countersuit.

Well, finally Gretchen and Jay will be facing-off in a civil trial that could get very interesting! The National Enquirer (a more reliable source than you’d think) is reporting that Jay’s attorneys recently deposed Gretchen and she changed her story about when she allegedly met Jay.

CLICK HERE TO SEE PHOTOS OF GRETCHEN AND JAY!

Gretchen had previously claimed he was a “family friend” and they briefly dated before Jeff entered the picture.  “Jay Photoglou is nothing more than a thief and liar. Jay and I had a short-lived relationship BEFORE Jeff and I dated,” she said of the situation way back in 2009.

During the deposition, Gretchen also admitted that she “spent time with Jay on at least four separate occasions after she got engaged to her now-deceased fiance.” When the attorneys sought more information she refused to answer further. Just so you know, multiple photos of Jay and Gretchen from that time period are floating around the web – damn that trusty time stamp – including ones that show them hanging out with Alexis and Jim Bellino!

Which brings us to the reason the ladies of RHOC will likely be involved in the civil suit. Jay is planning to subpoena several of Gretchen’s former and current castmates to testify against her, concerning when she met Jay and the type of relationship they shared! On the short list is: Tamra, Peggy Tanous, Lynne Curtain, and guess who? Alexis!

“No matter what, Gretchen is not going to like it when her fellow housewives have to spill the beans about her relationship with Jay Photoglou,” said an insider reveals. “I’m sure no matter what they say, it won’t help Gretchen’s case.” I’m not sure why Gretchen continues to pretend she is innocent in all of this – it’s ridiculous!

What’s interesting about this situation is that Alexis was formerly one of Gretchen’s closest friends, but she has since defected! After a tension-filled season where Alexis openly admitted she is unhappy about Gretchen’s newly burgeoning friendship with Tamra;  Jesus Barbie is now speaking out about her new friendship with Vicki Gunvalson!

“Vicki and I have finally turned over a new leaf. We’ve started hanging out outside of the show, which has been nice,” Alexis shares with WetPaint. “I would say I’m cautiously optimistic about it.”

Alexis adds that it’s difficult for her to get past some of the negative things Vicki has said about her in the past, but she wants to think happy thoughts. “I try not to dwell on it,” she explains. “I want to live in the moment and give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I think, back when Vicki said all those things about me, she was in a really unhappy place. Now, she’s happy again and in a better place and so far, we’re getting along just fine.”

Proving this friendship is indeed real, Vicki recently tweeted a photo of them at an event. The photo is below!

While, Alexis and Vicki have made amends, and Tamra and Gretchen are now BFF, there’s two people who just can’t see eye-to-eye: Gretchen and Vicki! Gretchen recently spoke out saying she doesn’t “respect” Vicki and has no interest in a relationship with her. And HollywoodLife reveals that things have evolved into a full-fledged feud!

“There’s a feud between Gretchen and Vicki,” the source says. “And Vicki and Alexis are bonding over it. They are also both visibly annoyed about Gretchen and Tamra’s new friendship.” Things are so acrimonious, Gretchen intentionally skipped Vicki’s recent 50th birthday party, which was attended by all of her other castmates!

And finally, Vicki is doing what she does best – talking about herself! In a new interview with US Weekly, Vicki shares her secrets to longevity as a Housewife!

“Number one, I’m the original; Number 2, I’ve allowed the cameras to enter all parts, all facets of my life; and I signed up for this!;” Vicki believes these are the reasons she’s lasted seven seasons on the show. She said her approach to filming is, “This is my reality — come on in through all the issues and struggles and trials — and good times!”

Vicki also adds that things get pretty testy with Tamra as the season goes on – including an epic fight in the season finale where their friendship faces the ultimate test. Things are good between the two now. “We were able to mend the fences and kinda get through it,” she says. “Will I ever forget? uh-huh.”  Juicy! I wonder what happened!?

You can watch the video of Vicki talking RHOC below!

THOUGHTS ON GRETCHEN AND JAY’S LATEST COURT BATTLE? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? IS ALEXIS’ FRIENDSHIP WITH ALEXIS AUTHENTIC? SURPRISED VICKI AND TAMRA HAD SUCH SERIOUS ISSUES?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County the ladies got to mudslinging, only this time it involved actual mud for a change! In other news, Tamra Barney is officially divorced and Vicki Gunvalson is officially the most insecure fifty-year-old I’ve ever encountered. Oh, and Alexis Bellino revealed her new nose, which we’ve already seen 10,000 times before, so that was no big whoo-hoo.

Things start out with the Queen of the OC and resident class act, Heather Dubrow taking her husband shopping. Apparently, this is What Not To Wear, the Dr. Dubrow edition. Sadly, Stacy London and Clinton Kelly did not appear with a bevy of secret footage and a red trash can. Hopefully they’re saving that for Vicki, but I digress.

Terry does need a make-over and hopefully David Austin, world’s greatest clothier in all the world will help him – for a cool $50k. “You’re gonna look mmmaaaavalous!;” Heather purs; prying Terry’s wallet from his shaking hands with a malicious glint in her eye. Terry will no longer embarrass his perfect wife at cocktail parties with his outmoded and pedestrian appearance. Oh no – there is a new Terry in town and this one has both black and white tie attire!

I must admit – it’s nice to see some old-school traditional HW action of spending ostentatious amounts of money and actually being able afford it. We hope… . If they declare bankruptcy next year, we’ll know they’ve been struck by the Teresa Giudice curse!

Gretchen Rossi is still desperately trying to convince people that she had nothing to do with leaking stories to the tabloids about Bravo manipulating co-star Tamra Barney‘s engagement. This week, Gretchen is saying Tamra merely jumped to conclusions and hurt her feelings by assuming she would sell a friend out.

“Obviously it hurts me that she immediately jumped to conclusions and made assumptions that I had something to do with it. I mean bottom line is the article actually says sources close to Gretchen it doesn’t say Gretchen said,” Gretchen tells 365Voice.

“It made me sad and it hurts me that she fired back that quick. And it was hard to hear her say that I was jealous of her thing because I’ve been nothing more than happy and supportive of her engagement.”

However, based on their less than cordial relationship in seasons’ past, Gretchen understands why Tamra was so quick to call a spade a spade react. “Tamra and I have had a very crazy past and I don’t blame her for reacting out of pain and hurt and jumping to conclusions,” she explains. “I texted her right away and I called right away and I let her know that this is ridiculous and that is not at all the truth. It seems as if by the end of the day she started to realize that and she kind of changed her tune on her twitter.”

Although, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars are not totally stable yet. Of course… “I think that unfortunately it’s going to take a few days for us to all kind of calm down from it and you know feel better about this whole situation. It’s really unfortunate because I really come to really enjoy my friendship with Tamra.”

Is anyone believing this friendship is actually legit? I mean, evidenced by the fact that Tamra so readily believed Gretchen responsible for talking to the tabloids, it’s pretty obvious this was a reality television stunt. Amirite?

Gretchen all but confirms that the friendship was inspired by ratings when she discusses the positive fan reaction to the ladies’ newfound friendship. “It’s really funny because it’s been such a great reaction from the audience, the audience has been so supportive and so happy about it and in reality Tamra and I have been very happy about it too,” Gretchen shares.

“Let me just say this for the record I’ve always liked Tamra I never had a problem with Tamra, she was always the one who had an issue with me. So I always from day one thought that she was a good friend of mine and I thought that she was really fun and I had a great time with her and you know, she kind of attacked me about things she didn’t have any knowledge about.”

Gretchen also continues to have issues with Vicki Gunvalson and promises that won’t be changing anytime soon! “Is she somebody that I respect and that I value and that I think is adding value to my life at this time? Not really,” Gretchen says of her feelings about Vicki.

“It’s disappointing to me that she continues to talk about things she doesn’t know about and I thought maybe she learned her lesson you know the first round and sees that everyone’s telling her she’s a hypocrite and she shouldn’t be talking about things she doesn’t know but then she goes right back on Watch What Happens Live and says that about something she doesn’t know again,” Gretchen fumes.

Gretchen also blames Vicki for the infamous Bunco fight. “I like to be a very upbeat person and I don’t really enjoy confrontation and I really have always tried to be empowering to other women and other cast members,” Gretchen believes. “If you actually look at who I’ve been the last two years on the show I’m never just talking crap about these women for no good reason.”

Moving on, Gretchen insists she doesn’t even want to be married yet because Bravo hasn’t offered her and Slave a spin off! “I’m in a different place in my life than Tamra is and you’ll see it unfold this season on the show that I’m not necessarily ready to be married yet,” Gretchen confesses.

And finally, Alexis Bellino and hubby Jim recently had a glamorous photoshoot for their family. A pic from that shoot is below!

Tonight is an all-new episode of Real Housewives of Orange County! The ladies get together for a muddy marathon for charity and Tamra’s divorce is finalized, causing some emotions she wasn’t prepared for! Also, Briana’s diagnosis is revealed and Alexis unveils her new nose! See a preview of the new episode below.

Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

THOUGHTS ON GRETCHEN’S INTERVIEW – IS SHE JEALOUS OF TAMRA’S ENGAGEMENT? IS THEIR FRIENDSHIP LEGIT OR FOR RATINGS?

CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON FOR THE PHOTO & PREVIEW!


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County was kinda boring, no? Alexis and Briana got surgery. Tamra discovered Simon is finally ready to let her be the free bitch she was meant to be – but she’s not sure she’s ready to live a life unfettered. Tamra and Vicki join Heather in LA where she is embarking upon a restaurant venture.

Things started out with Tamra paying a visit to her plastic surgeon, Dr. Ambae. Has anyone else noticed the Housewives always hug their doctors – who hugs their doctors? I’ve never hugged any of mine, but I guess if I were as reliant on my plastic surgeons as they are, it may be a different story. OR if my doctor was Paul, because I love him.

Anyway, Tamra wants to get her breasts reduced. Now that she is no longer beholden to Simon and his ideals about her body, she wants a smaller, less cumbersome rack. We get a close-up montage of Tamra’s old DDs and frankly, who wants to see a close up of wrinkled, spray-tanned cleavage? Dr. Ambae examines Tamra’s boobs and determines she has a lot of natural breast tissue so she can likely get the reduction done without adding smaller implants to fill things out. Tamra explains that those babies never stop growing! Third boobs, third marriage!

The Tamra Barney / Gretchen Rossi fauxlationship was ever so brief. The two, who were professing their love for each other mere weeks ago, are now, well – kaput! Dang, I only got to use Tamretchen for, like, five minutes.

Yesterday it emerged that Gretchen likely pedaled a story to TMZ accusing Tamra of planning her engagement to Eddie Judge, because Bravo shelled out for a ring and a romantic vacay to capture the proposal as an addition to this season’s storyline. Tamra apparently believed Gretchen was the culprit of the leak as she as spent the last twenty-four hours blowing up Twitter saying as much.

In response to all the drama, Tamra took to Facebook to thank her fans for support during these accusations. “Thanks for all my fans that posted positive comments. After a day of negative energy its time to turn it around. So I am drinking a Corona Light and cooking tacos with my kids waiting for my Hot Latin fiance to get home.”

Tamra also thanked Bravo for denying the story alleging that they bribed Eddie to pop the question! “Again Thank you Bravo for your support! To have people that want to tear you down when you are so happy is hurtful,” she added.

On Twitter, Tamra has done nothing short of accusing Gretchen of being responsible. In one of her cryptic tweets, Tamra revealed that she knew who was responsible but wasn’t ready to reveal. “it is very hurtful and I know who did it,” she wrote “Trust me it will come out..time.” Here’s betting the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion will be giving this matter a lot of attention!

And, for those of you speculating Vicki Gunvalson had anything to do with the story, Tamra flat-out denied it. Personally, I definitely do not see Vicki doing something like that – particularly since she and Tamra are now business partners in their new venture, Wines by Wives. We all know work and money are Vicki’s life and she wouldn’t jeopardize that opportunity!

In response to the insinuations, Gretchen has spent a lot of time defending herself. Gretchen adamantly denies she had anything to do with the story about Tamra and maintains that the two are in a good place. “Today was a tough day, can’t say thank you enough for always showing such support and love towards me. Love u all so much! Xoxo,” she tweeted.

Gretchen will be appearing on CNN this evening where she promises to set the record straight about her relationship with Tamra and the TMZ story. What on earth CNN is doing interviewing Gretchen is a mystery to me – must be a really, realllllllly slow news day. Like, did news completely stop happening?

Tamra was due to appear with Gretchen, but in light of the situation canceled! “we were both to be on CNN today together about something else. I am way to upset to go! lets see if she does the right thing?,” Tamra commented. Wowzers!

Moving on, Heather Dubrow is speaking out about last week’s Bunko meltdown with Alexis Bellino. “It seemed like Alexis was itching for a fight the whole night. . . I feel like I have been attacked by Alexis since we met, and I’m not sure why,” Heather shares in her Bravo blog.

“But when she got Terry [Dubrow] involved, I couldn’t stand by and watch. He had no idea who was being discussed (how would he know that Gretchen calls her “Lex”). Pick on me all you want, but you DON’T mess with my man!”

And despite getting off on the wrong Louboutin clad foot, Heather says Alexis has apologized and things are good between them. “I would like to say that Alexis sent me a very sweet text message the next day. She said she overreacted and felt bad about what happened. I thought that was great, I appreciated it.”

Finally, tonight marks an all-new episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. And everyone is in surgery! Alexis recovers from her nose job, Briana gets the results of her biopsy, and Tamra consults her doctor about a breast reduction! See a preview for the new episode below!

Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Bravo tonight at 9/10c

WILL GRETCHEN AND TAMRA’S FRIENDSHIP RECOVER? DO YOU BELIEVE GRETCHEN HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SLANDEROUS STORY ABOUT TAMRA’S ENGAGEMENT? CAN HEATHER AND ALEXIS MAKE AMENDS?

Days after Alexis Bellino spoke out accusing Gretchen Rossi of disloyalty, Gretchen is fighting back against her former best friend and denying that she threw her under the bus. The Real Housewives of Orange County stars certainly do not appear to be the closest of friends any longer, as Gretchen has apparently moved on to another blonde with a plastic surgery habit!

And the issue that started the demise of their friendship was Nose Job Wars! Gretchen claims her reason for outing the nose job to Tamra Barney, was the mere coincidence that Alexis and Tamra were having plastic surgery on the same day! Only in Housewives land… “Tamra and I were talking about her going into surgery on Monday for her breast reduction (the bunko party was on Saturday night) that’s when I said ‘oh that’s funny Lex is going into surgery on Monday too.’ ”

“Then Tamra said for what? I said for her sinuses, and Tamra said you mean for a nose job, and I said, ‘Well I think she is also getting the bump taken off, but she is going in for her sinuses,’” Gretchen insists.

“This is when all hell broke loose,” Gretchen describes in her Bravo blog. “I mean for goodness sake’s were we really fighting about a nose job? How ridiculous was that? To me Alexis became very insecure and defensive.” Gretchen cites “feeling emotional” as a result of her earlier fight with Vicki as the reason she didn’t jump in to defend Alexis.

That argument signified the end of their made-for-TV friendship. Too bad – it seemed like a really sincere relationship. “Unfortunately, this is the night the dynamic between Alexis and I changed. I was very hurt by her actions towards me. She started accusing me of not having her back,” Gretchen muses.

“My friendship with Tamra had nothing to do with my friendship with Alexis, and I would never allow Tamra to influence my feelings towards Alexis. Alexis’ own actions towards me are what changed my feelings.”

And Gretchen is accusing Lex of not having her back either! “What I find most ironic about Alexis being so upset with me is that she sat there completely silent while I was in a fight with Vicki. Why is it that I had to get in the middle of her fight with Tamra but she could sit silent in my fight with Vicki [Gunvalson]?”

Gretchen also, of course, tackles that drama-filled fight with Vicki. “Bottom line Vicki’s rules apply to everyone but herself. She is what you call a hypocrite. Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t her own daughter call her out on this (on the way to surgery) ‘Nothing is ever about anyone else but my mom,’” Gretchen snipes.

“The underlying part of this fight was her claiming we had no clue what it is like to have a sick child,” Gretchen explains. “What is it with these women that they think just because I haven’t popped out a kid between my own two legs, I have no clue what it is like to be concerned about a child? Last time I checked Slade [Smiley]‘s son has been sick for close to seven years now, and I have now had to embrace that fight with him for the last three.”

And Gretchen is STILL defending Slade, saying he never went to jail for child support issues and has always made “some sort” of payment. Slade went to jail for missing a court date related to not paying child support.

“Slade went to court and filed a modification three years ago. Unfortunately the media likes to perpetuate lies, and obviously so do some of my cast members. Gratefully after three years of fighting with his ex in court, the court granted his modification just a few weeks ago to match his current income.” His support was allegedly reduced to around $775.00 per month.

“Slade is working very hard to catch up on any back debt that is outstanding based on the arrears being adjusted from the modification,” she insists. “Moreso he refuses to allow me to help him with it — something I greatly respect him for.”

Gretchen is also adamant that Slade has a job, although neither she nor Slade are revealing what that so-called job is! “Slade does NOT work for me and never has! He has simply helped me with my businesses as any good partner would!; ” she clarifies. His job must be very flexible to allow for all that free filming, traveling around with Gretchen, and trailing behind her, hauling some pink Gretchen Christine junk bags. Too bad ol’ Slavey can’t write his own blog to explain his nonsense, but alas, he isn’t a real castmember! Just a hanger-on.

Also speaking out about Alexis’ nose and the Bunco night from hell is our esteemed hostess with the mostess-drama, Tamra! First off, Tammy Sue, insists Jim Bellino was indeed on the guest list, but he never RSVP’d.

“To hear Alexis say Jim was NOT invited just blows me away. He chose not to attend. You see me walk over to her and whisper in her ear. I was telling her that Jim was invited and he did not respond to the invite. I would NEVER invite all the men and not Jim, My God, I even had Slade and he just ripped on me.”

Tamra explains her perspective on the fight between Vicki and Gretchen, and is still in shock that it happened. “I was really put in a bad place and was not about to choose sides. I was actually speechless for once in my life,” she reveals in her Bravo blog. “I heard the screaming and the yelling but after a while it sounded like white noise. I can understand both sides.”

“I told Vicki that ‘I was removed because I choose to be removed.’ I just can’t take the back and forth fighting anymore. I figure If I am above it, maybe it will go away? Guess what, it did!”

And about Alexis’ sinus surgery/nose job; Tamra is still calling bull sh-t on Alexis’ claims of sinus trouble! “I am sorry but she has complained about the bump on her nose for years. No one has ever heard her talk about her sinuses.” True, true!

“The bottom line is, NO ONE at that table cared if she was getting a nose job. It was just the fact that she was lying about it, like she always does,” Tamra seethes. “Alexis (or should I call her Pinocchio) really should stop lying or that nose is going to get big again.” Buuuurn! And funny.

“I have never talked to Alexis about Gretchen and when we fought in the past she never challenged me on what was said,” Tamra claims. “I’m starting to think she just says what sounds good at that moment.”

Finally, in closing, Tamra claims she was harassing Slave about his deadbeatism because she cares about Grayson, and for Alexis or anyone to imply otherwise is heartless!

“Alexis made this statement on her blog and it sent chills down my spin ‘I don’t like how Tamra and Vicki treated Slade and Gretchen in the past about Slade’s child support, and how in the past neither Tamra or Vicki seemed to care that Slade’s precious son was so ill.’ I take great offense to this statement,” Tamra asserts. “The reason I was so vocal about Slade’s issues in the past is because I felt SO BAD about his son.”

In other news, Vicki turned 50 yesterday! “Tonight I am blessed to be celebrating my 50th Birthday with family and friends! This deserves a Woo Hoo!;” she tweeted. Tamra and Eddie will be included in the “friends,” as she confirmed on Twitter they’ll be present. No word if Alexis and Jim are also on the list! Make sure to wish the OG of the OC a Happy Birthday!
