EXCLUSIVE: Tamra Barney On Alexis Bellino – “We Are Tired Of Her Nonsense”

Exclusive

In Tuesday night’s explosive episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, the ladies confronted Alexis Bellino and accused her of being shallow and phony.

Tamra Barney, who has made no secret of the fact she dislikes Alexis (and said so to her face in a recent episode) is defending the “intervention” that happened in Costa Rica, saying Alexis set herself up for criticism.

“A bully is someone that intentionally goes after another person,” Tamra tells RumorFix exclusively. “I have never gone after Alexis, she came to me and asked me how I felt. I am a very honest person and don’t tend to sugarcoat my thoughts. Sure, I poke fun of her in my interviews in regards to some of the stuff she says and does (it’s my job and we all do it to each other) . Geez, even Kathy Griffin has written her into her act! I honestly feel sorry for Alexis and I hope she gets help.

“When the whole cast  is planning a intervention to try and get through to this girl it’s gotta make you wonder. Is everyone else wrong and she is right? NO!  I never wanted to hurt her feelings or make her feel bad, but things got heated in Costa Rica and my message to her was “be a real person, no one cares if you have money so stop talking about it” (in my loud voice), everybody was saying the same thing to her.”

Tamra also states that Alexis a different person on and off the show, which clearly leads to confusion from viewers who think she is being picked on.

“Unfortunately, the Alexis you see on TV is not the Alexis you see off camera which makes it hard for the viewers to fully understand the other reasons everyone is tired of her nonsense. I really do hope that she can learn from everyone’s comments. We are all on a reality show together and if  she chooses to be fake and phony then she better accept the fact that people are going to have a lot to say about it.”

      I wish Bravo would get rid of Alexis. All of the women were 100% correct in their observations of her. She is as phony as a three dollar bill.

        Get Rid of the waste -Tamra Barney

      • qtpieisme2

        Then they wouldn’t have a show because every one of these broads are fake!  Heather said she’s about 98% real but she needs to have her own voice rather than following the pack.  The only one that acts real is Brianna and she’s not a major part of the cast!

    • guest

      Tamra you’re a jealous B! What gives you the right to harp on and judge Alexis, when you have ZERO class and practically had SEX with your boyfriend on national TV? BAD MOTHER MUCH? If anyone should get cornered for an intervention, it’s TAMRA! Her poor children!

    • YaYa

      all of these women are vile creatures.

    • linda

      I liked you Tamra…. but your comments to Alexis are rude and actually makes you look like a bully.  Who cares if she brags… a lot of people do…. being rude to others is making you look small.

    • Rational

      Alexis is a total hypocrite!  She is a mother and a wife and walks around advertising her assets, as fake as they may be, she’s advertising something that’s not for sale as she is already spoken for.  That is not what her religion teaches.  She is not humble by any means, in fact she seems pretty wacky and is living in delusion.

    • Abbeyrose

      Tamra IS a bully !! She became friends with Gretchen after treating her like crap last season. So, she decides to go now after Alexis, who used to be her friend !! She is as fake as it can get

    • Abbeyrose86

      Apart from being a bully she is criticizing stuff she used to do !! Like brag about money. Now because she is divorced an not rich anymore she wants to go an criticize the one person that is just like her.
      I hate hypocrites 

    • Fraud_examiner

      The only likeable person ont he show is heather.  Tamra is a hypocrite as Alexis is.  Alexis can be unbearable but tamra just comes off as mean and bitchy.  It sucks her children have to learn how her mama acts on TV! as for Vicki, she just seems lost this sason, and Gretchen, she just switched sides and turned her back on Alexis. granted Alexis is nutty, but Gretchen did act shady after befriending Tamra. For real, they all adults, I don’t understand why they can’t get along without being in each other business!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/HKW6RUQZVUYISRI44WM2AZH6KI Valerie B

      LOL and Tamra doesn’t advertise what she had when she was married? Weren’t these women hired to do that? Tamra isn’t advertising her BOOB REDUCTION and her GYM her half baked son and sex with her new boyfriend?? come on…they all flaunt and show ….Tamra is cruel she doens’t only bully Alexis on her own she pulls the other women in to help her….Heather is her newest PET.

    • guest

      Tamara you are a B****!!!  What now that you are friends with Gretchen and no longer harassing Slade about not paying his child support you need someone else to BULLY so you have set your sites on Alexis,  she is not the brightest bulb in the pack but that is no reason to BULLY her.  Up until the Costa Rica trip I was not in favor of Alexis but when I saw what a bunch of MEAN GIRLS you and rest were to her, I felt sorry for her.  Who cares if she brags about money and cars or whatever so do the rest of you and every other housewives in this series from NY to Atlanta to Beverly Hills.  Maybe instead of getting your boobs smaller you should have made that FOUL mouth of yours smaller!!!!!!!

    • carmella

      I’m just waiting until Alexis blows up at her husband. He’s very controlling. I foresee things Alexis wants to do but he will put the nix on it.  He treats her like she should just stay home and take care of him and the children.  Sometimes you need to find time for yourself.  Perhaps this is why she comes off as phony

    • Amywaner

      All of these ladies (if you can even call them that) flaunt their money, their looks, and their lives in general, they shouldn’t be calling out one another for doing it, it’s just for show, they are getting paid to do this and boy are they doing it very well, i’m kinda jelous myself!

    • Squarepeg

      Let’s be real, Tamara is so jealous of Elexis. Tamara if Elexis and her husband wants to rent, buy 14 cars it isn’t your business. If she wants to brag let her brag be materialistic so be it. You don’t want to hear it walk away. Worry about yourself, kids and man. Stop bullying people because that’s what your doing. Even if she is telling your business. Tamara stop telling these catty women your business. They can only discuss your business if you give it to them. Y’all are to old to be stupid.

    • Lonewolf2

      Tamra is the one that needs help for her hatred of anyone that she knows is prettier than her.

       Bragging, Tamra, is showing off your Rolex at your 40th birthday party.

      First – for all the complaints and all the ranting about how much each or all are despised by so many – you guys are stillw watching – no each of these women’s lives step by step so Bravo must be doing something right – Secondly, it’s reality tv people but you have to realize it has little to do with reality … not real people reality that is.  I mean come on – Alexis thinks she’s a news anchor – are you kidding me right now?  All in all I guess I’d have to say I’ve grown to like Heather – she hasn’t been on the show long enough for her ugly side to show – and we have seen each and every one of these women’s ugly side on one occasion or another.  Gretchen – seriously – if she wanted to talk to her ‘friend’ about attributes that might not have been her most favorable traits she should have done that privately.  She jumped on the band wagon with everyone else.  Constructive criticism – uh no – I think it was Alexis bashing but hey – she really kind of asks for it.  Oh and by the way – she can say and do whatever she pleases but the fakey fakey religious thing – that’s going to get her a one way ticket to hell – I’m just saying.

      If I were to take this show or any other REALITY show at face value, then in my observations of the show, Tamra and Heather, or as I refer to them, “Camra” and “Pleather” are seriously experiencing some form of mental menopause (we all know they’re the right age for it).  To refer to Alexis as “Fake.”  Let’s be clear, this is a REALITY show.  That in itself implies, IT’S ALL FAKE!  “Camra & Pleather” are not only overflowing with mendacity, but they actually have the self-created arrogance to call someone else out!!!  Camra & Pleather are so filled with they’re envy of and lust for Alexis’ persona and the lifestyle she demonstrates on the show, that it’s laughable.  They protest too much!  While Camra & Pleather show their respective asses on the show, their prey, this time, Alexis shows her class.  The entire event was so strange.  It is readily apparent Camra & Pleather try so diligently for the camera.  In “reality” (for lack of a better word, not to contradict myself) Pleather, for example, demonstrates on the show this pseudo air of superiority (which, b.t.w,, Pleather is just as unnatural as Pleather, hence the nickname I’ve awarded you).  Actually, this behavior comes across as

      condescension towards each player on the show, including, wait for it…Camra!  This Pleather character, or so it appears, must be surrounded by those she deems beneath her in order to befriend any other character on the show.  Camra is simply being portrayed as extremely ignorant.  Ignorant of class, style, culture, a vocabulary with better options for adjectives, and

      breeding (unless of course inbreeding is a factor for her portrayed evil, vicious, vulgar, nastiness with every character on the show, at some point, thus far). Neither Camra nor Pleather appeared to possess awareness or skill set to recognize they’re portrayals obviously gave the impression, to many watchers of the show, they were indeed the fakes, the double-minded fakes.  To portray themselves to Alexis as smiling, friendly associates on the surface, but in every personal, off-camera shot, say so many despicable things about her.  Alexis demonstrated a certain (televised) poise and grace when she met one-on-one with Camra, who again, could not control herself.  If only she knew how wicked she is portrayed.  Alexis once again demonstrated the same grace & poise (as I mention before) when she asked Pleather to meet off-sight with her to discuss her concerns with Pleather’s spouse’s comments about her.  Pleather, who needs an audience (case and point:  her trip to the DMV.  Seriously? But I digress) rejected that concept (no audience) and chose to have the confrontation, not the alleged intervention (yeah, right) at the dinner table.  How classy, ah classless was that, I ask you?  This from the woman who must draw some type of attention to herself by the inappropriate utterance of the translated name of the restaurant. 

      The show is for entertainment and sometimes “friends” disagree and hold grudges and gossip about each other when they are upset with each other, and at times for me it was funny and I even took sides from time to time.  I enjoy the show.  When it appears the shows characters are more dark than deep, then, well, not so much.  Oh, lest I forget, Gretchen, whom I also enjoyed on the show, has lost quite a bit of credibility from her fans, I believe.  This character is in the proverbial

      Proverbial “glass-house,” and to share and throw the stones at her “friend,” in support of her “friend’s,” bashers, (b.t.w. Gretchen, this is how you were portrayed) is the ultimate betrayal of a “friendship.”  Like any other “soap,” I am in true anticipation and will “stay tuned for the next episode of ” the OC housewives.

      I hope Bravo ditches the bully of OC, Tamara. I think she is pathetic and jealous. She seems to be as immature as a high school girl taking pleasure from picking on one girl that she is jealous of. Tamara is by far the ugliest housewife on the OC. I actually feel sorry for her ex, he had to put up with her all those years!  Alexis is much classier and is certainly more attractive than Tamara. I thinks Tamara is trailer trash in the OC.  I have been a fan of the show, but do not know if I can stomach much more of this bully!

    • Dietsprite2011

      I think Tamara is very jealous of Alexis and it is very sad that she bullied her! yes bullied and Gretchen who is suppose to be a friend jumped on the bang wagon, you didn’t like it when it was you! Alexis make real friends, these ladies except for Vicki are not your friends they are very sad women! Get a life

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ina-Carr/1642697487 Ina Carr

       Heather (Pleather), you proclaimed you, “know people from all walks of life…,” which could or would imply (in verbiage you selected) to be acquainted with, presently (since you spoke in the present tense)..  Being the self-proclaimed “authentic detector,” how authentic was that statement?  You “know”, let’s say, people who live on the streets of skid row?  I know you know the people you filmed with at the DMV, you just didn’t want to let us know you know people from their walk of life, right?  Take Alexis’ advice to Tamra (Camra), look in the mirror. 

    • RC

      Nobody is jealous of Alexis. Her personality is annoying. She is a superficial, materialist, and fake. She is also a fake Christian. People that like her also want to believe they are true Christians, but are in fact annoying fake Christians like Alexis. My friends and I tell each other when we don’t like certain behavior. This is what friends do. Tamara was very honest about her short sale and having to cut back. Alexis lied about her short sale and she can’t articulate what exactly her husband does for a living. They are flash with no cash living in a rented home. They live paycheck to paycheck like a lot of want to be rich fake people. Alexis needs to go back to school and get an education. She thought Costa Rica was in Mexico.

      I see Tamra as the instigator and the bully.   She is manipulative and a mean girl.  If she thinks she doesn’t start the trash talk, she’s delusional.  Eddie has to see what he is getting himself into, right?  Simon is lucky to be rid of her but I feel sorry for the many kids she has brought into this world.  

      I see Alexis as fragile and Tamra is doing more damage to her than not…on purpose.  I think Gretchen knows better than to be friends with Tamra but she, Vicki and Heather are smart enough to keep their enemy close… You don’t want to mess with Tamra but I guarantee they don’t really like her!!

      Look how Gretchen treats Slade and her former fiance.  She uses people.  Slade is her personal slave and she is benefiting off of that relationship financially while he is digging himself a financial hole as he is making all the money for her and she’s not sharing…she said it herself.  While with the old fiance she used him for his money…  Gretchen is an opportunist and shouldn’t be trusted.  She is in this and these relationships for one purpose – self promotion and money.  She is aging fast and looking older each session…it is sad!!

    • Cadetpink80

      I could see a glimmer into how this female actually asks. From her and Peggy last season the Bellinos made a distinct impression. They’ve had every car, had sex everywhere in every way known to gravity, she’s an expert in haute couture and in investigative journalism. She goes into detail about EVERY THING she owns, does, goes, and is a hypocritical vapid insecure jealous petty excuse for mother setting a GREAT example for two daughters! Yeah! Let’s objectify ourselves for DADDY!!!! Show off your hips girls!

      As for Tamra being an instigator and bully, who invited who out to talk? Who said what to THEIR FACE vs to a camera in an interview? Alexis didn’t seem to have a problem defending her hubby at a Tupperware party… Or in JUMPING DOWN TERRY’S throat!!! Damn…

    • Cadetpink80

      P.S. I also wouldn’t think of Heather as a “pet” to anyone. She CLEARLY wears the well tailored pants in that marriage, but I love how candid and honest she is. One of her first statements was about the group, how she didn’t really know them and didn’t want them in her house! Was an honest way of saying what she thought while showing who she is and I loved it!

      When it was Tamra and Simor, with Vicki and Donn; you had to miserable bullying women in the way they treated Gretchen, Alexis, Slade, Jim, and Donn falls under victim by his wife in every instance shown…that was some bullying, kinda like how Vicki treated her daughter after she was called the spade she is…

    • Becca the becca

      Who cares if Tamras approach to telling alexis how ridiculous she is was harsh. Alexis deserves it, its annoying listening to her talk about god all the time listening to her talk about a rollys royce etc. 

    • Yadira__5

      I use to like Tamara, but she is a hateful b**** and I think she is so miserable that she has to always pick faults in other to make herself feel better!!!

    • Iknowdrama71

      Alexis is irritating.  I’m not rich, so I don’ know, but I heard if you really have it “like that” you don’t have to flaunt it or brag about it.  Even Alexis’s opening comment on the show basically says, “I have nice things and you wish you had them too!”  I don’t hate Alexis, she is beginning to stand up for herself more and I like that, but she appears to be very materialistic and shallow.  Furthermore, I don’t think anyone on the show is jealous of her, it’s not as if she’s a natural beauty (she paid for the look), she has no extraordinary talent (that I have seen), and she’s not wealthy (or she wouldn’t be on the show)! 

    • Ctjester01

      Who died and made you the morality monitor Tamra? Part of being an adult is realizing the world dosn’t revolve around you! People don’t have to live according to our standards or expectations. Take the beam out of your own eye before you point out the splinter in someone elses. Great advice to live by is ” Do unto others as you would have done unto you”!

      How can you think of saying, ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.

      Tamra is always bullying someone because she needs to figure. It is the only way to be noticed, since she is the poorest, shortest, most unstable, and probably the oldest of all. Alexis is the most stunning of all and probably the most stable in every way. Tamra is jealous because she drives the most expensive cars, has a beautiful family, and rich husband that adores her, and everything else Alexis has.

      Tamra is a loser that needs to feed on hurting others with more fortune than her to feel superior and to disguise her misery. She needs to find her equal with a louder mouth, which is all she has.
