Maybe Alexis Bellino hasn’t ever really gotten over Tamra Judge deeming her Jesus Jugs. Or, maybe Alexis has just seen the poor Tammy Sue behavior we’ve all witnessed over the years on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Alexis recently had a lot to say about Tamra’s thirst and manipulation tactics, implying that Tammy would stop at nothing just to keep her RHOC orange.
Alexis called Tamra “manipulative and conniving”
Alexis and Tamra were seen looking friendly when they reunited at BravoCon last weekend. However, Alexis made some comments about Tamra to Page Six shortly before the event that were pretty cutting – and pretty accurate.
Alexis didn’t mince words. She began, “I do think she’s manipulative and conniving, and I think she would sell her own mom to stay on the show.”
“I don’t think she would deny any of that if we asked her, too.” At least Alexis thinks Tammy’s kind of self-aware.
We learned at the beginning of Season 17 that Tamra’s mom, Sandy Baker, was living with her and Eddie Judge. We also learned that Tamra’s daughter could hear her grandmother’s sex noises since her room was below Sandy’s. So, maybe Tamra selling her mom isn’t such a bad idea, after all?
Alexis was indirectly involved with some of Season 17’s drama
Tamra and Heather Dubrow feuded throughout the season and at the reunion. One point of contention was that Tamra wasn’t pleased that Heather said she’d rather have Alexis back on the show while Tamra stayed on pause. Heather and Alexis have maintained a friendship off-camera.
Alexis says she didn’t appreciate Tamra using her to start a fight. “It’s ridiculous that she is using my name as an excuse to carry out any of this behavior.”
But, Alexis did give Tamra her due for being great at “driving conflict” adding, “She made for good TV this year in all of her drunken stupors.”
And she thinks some of Tamra’s messiness is in desperation to remain on Bravo.
“It’s what keeps her relevant. And I feel like this year, Tamra was out to really prove, ‘Don’t let me go again, Andy Cohen. I’m here for a good reason.’”
Will Alexis ever return to RHOC?
So will Alexis ever hop back into the ring to handle Tamra’s antics herself? Maybe. She said she’d be “so down” to go on an Ultimate Girls Trip. Grabbing her orange back someday also didn’t seem out of the question.
“I’m definitely excited and proud to be associated with the network, and I’d never want to say never. And I’ll leave it at that.”
If Alexis does ever come back, hopefully she doesn’t start dating someone who was a client of Tamra’s now-defunct CUT Fitness. We know how that worked out for newcomer, Jennifer Pedranti!
