As we reported the other day, Grayson, the son of Real Housewives of Orange County'sSlade Smiley, underwent brain surgery for a tumor hes been battling for years. Many of our readers were upset that Gretchen Rossi was Facebooking the status of Grayson's surgery. Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how tense things are between Slade and Grayson's mother as he claims he can't afford to pay child support or help with their son's mounting medical bills.
While Gretchen was asking for prayers for Grayson from her fans, many wondered how Grayson's mother would feel about her updating the world on her boyfriend's son. I think she's more interested in her son's well-being and sharing how you can donate to help pay his bills than to worry about Gretchen.
I know most people won't agree with me, but I like Heather Dubrow. I daresay, she's my favorite of the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County. However, girlfriend needs to stop giving interviews that reference Alexis Bellino. It's unbecoming. This time around, she seems to be burying the hatchet, but still. I can't wait until I can write about one of these women in one of the many franchises and actually use the phrase "took the high road." A girl can dream, can't she?
This time around, Heather is discussing her time on the show, as well as her hesitation to join the cast. She touches on the breakdown between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney's friendship and her disdain at the term "bullying" being thrown about in situations where it may not apply. I'm not going to touch that comment with a ten-foot pole!
If you recall, 20/20 did a report on Brooks where they claimed that he wasn't paying anything for his son with ex-girlfriend Nicolette Catanzarite and hadn't visited his son since he was 5 or 6 months old. Furthermore, Nicolette claimed that she had no clue of Brooks' whereabouts until he showed up on RHOC! Well, now the news program is setting the record straight thanks to ol' Brooks.
So, let's get this straight, shall we? Alexis Bellino has allegedly quit Real Housewives of Orange County, but yet she can't stop talking about it. And neither can her co-stars. There is so much she said/she said with these original ladies they may start being confused for their New Jersey counterparts. Totally kidding! The O.C. is too blonde.
Last season, Heather Dubrow lead the charge against Jesus Barbie in an attempt to find out why she needed to be equal parts fake and pretentious. As you recall, it didn't go well. Now Heather is back in media to dispute Alexis' multiple claims in the media that she quit the show instead of not being asked to return. Does it matter? Either way I have an Alexis-free season, and while I don't really like any of the women anymore (shocking, I know), she grated on my last nerve.
Oh Alexis Bellino… why? Why you do this to me? Who will be the burst of ridiculous in a sea of bitches who take themselves way, way too seriously? I blame Gretchen Hiss-tine Bootay for this! To commemorate one of my favorite delusional blondes with boobs as big as the Hollywood Hills I now present, Jesus Barbie: A Retrospective. Let’s recap some of Alexis’ greatest moments, shall we?
It seems that almost everyday there's a little buzz about which city will be hosting the next round of Bravo insanity with its own set of overly catty, surgically enhanced, and Botoxed to the hilt drama queens…marriage license preferred but certainly not required.
While the Bravo cash cow has women fighting each other in franchises all over the country, one rumor has been consistent for a while. Could Bravo be heading to the homeland of Eden and Cruz (yeah, I went there!) to film the next installment? With the original Real Housewives of Orange County still bringing in the ratings andReal Housewives of Beverly Hills still bringing the most-talked about dramatics, wouldn't it make sense to go back to Cali for the next batch of crazy?
While her emerging fan base will be sad to see her go, the trampoline dynasty will surely be thrilled to hear the latest Real Housewives of Orange County news! Alexis Bellino has announced that she won't be returning next season…by her own choice.
Those last three words, for me, are hard to swallow, as I can't see Alexis, as nice and clueless as she may appear, stepping out of the limelight of her own accord. In the past season, Alexis became the brunt of most of the ladies' drama, although she did kind of shoot herself in the foot by acting so pretentious and holier than thou. But that's just me. At least she has a bounce kingdom to oversee…it's the small things, right?
I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I'm guessing that there will never be any love lost between Tamra Barney and Alexis Bellino from Real Housewives of Orange County. In the wake of the news that Tamra has snubbed another season of the Bravo hit to focus on her family (um, prioritize much, Alexis?), Tamra's acrylic French tip claws have come out in full force!
As we've reported, Alexis is sticking to her claims that Bravo is desperate for her to return for season 8, but she just can't continue to put herself in a situation where people question her fake engagement ring, rental home, outrageous news anchor claims, and her husband's chimplant. Er, I mean, she just doesn't want to be bullied anymore. I can't say I blame her there…Alexis certainly get the brunt of hatefulness from her cast mates for purportedly being phony. Fake or not though, no one deserves to be subjected to other's petty bad behavior.
