Alexis Bellino Clears Up Malibu Country Conflict!


Alexis Bellino is taking to her Bravo Blog to explain that she was not saying she was offered Heather Dubrow’s role on Malibu Country. Alexis insists she is very happy for Heather and she was only trying to relate to her. Alexis says she and Jim went and watched Heather tape the show and she did a fabulous job, she explains it was just a misunderstanding!

Alexis writes, “When I found out Heather was only making the trip for six hours, I was impressed! It wasn’t the easiest trip considering we had to drive to LA, fly 6 hours and go through customs, etc. When we got on the bus to ride to the hotel and I found out the reason Heather was leaving was for a role on Reba McEntire’s show, I was happy for her! I did not know anything about Gretchen getting a phone call from Reba’s agent, and I didn’t know that Gretchen and Heather were already arguing about this. Remember I couldn’t stay for Tamra’s dress shopping dinner, which is where all of this news was delivered. Although it seemed like I knew they were all having a conversation about it, I can assure you I did not hear it.

So when I say that I received a call from Reba’s agent too, I was not insinuating it was for Heather’s role, I was simply relating to her. It makes me sad that we cannot have a genuine excitement for each other without jealousies being involved.  My timing may have been off, but my intentions were not malicious. The first thing I said to Heather when I heard she was leaving early because of her part on the Reba show was that it was exciting and I offered her my congratulations. I also explained that I never was OFFERED a role, Reba’s agent simply asked if I was available at that time and I was not. I was excited for her role and Jim and I watched her play her part. She did it beautifully.”

  1. It was clear to me that Alexis mentioned it just because it was the subject on the table. Gretchen was hair trigger because everyone is mad at her. But the real problem has actually been Heather. She is so hell bent to make sure nobody mistakes their lesser offer for her twice-in-a-decade “guest star” status that she’s made an issue in both cases. A little bit of humility in that woman would go far.

    1. But Heather went over board on her comments,,,,,Like how dare Alexis mention that she got a call as well.
      When its Heather moment, do not even dare to try and step in her spotlight.

    2. I agree. I too thought Alexis made it clear that she merely received an inquiry that never progressed because she wasn’t available. But, of course, Heather couldn’t resist saying something snotty in response.

  2. I don’t understand why Heather gets these roles. She is not a good actor in my opinion; she is too rehearsed and stiff and lacks range if that’s the proper term. IMO. As a matter of fact, I was more impressed when Tamra rattled off the “‘bad bangs bitch” line!

    1. I agree, Barb. She overacts and doesn’t understand comedy. It’s pretty clear why she got the part. At least 2 of the other housewives were asked their availability for the same show for walk on parts. It was a publicity thing – the show thought it would be cool/interesting/funny or whatever to use Housewives for that episode. Unfortunately, the other girls weren’t available.

      1. That’s a pretty smart assumption! For the part on Hot in Cleveland, Gretchen would have probably have worked although I rreally feel Tamra has a lot of personality and expression and I would LOVE to see her take a shot, even though I am not crazy about her, although I am holding out hope she will soften a bit because someone cute and sweet is in there…1st choice: Tamra, 2) Gretchen (she acts without even realizing it) and 3) Alexis (last resort; poor thing but she is pretty!) That one line, “make passionate, actory love” was just too practiced by Heather time wise, and flat as a pancake. Heather is boring.

        Sorry everyone these are my opinions.


        1. I don’t think the Malibu Country people cared whether any of them could act – they were doing it more like a stunt. I doubt any of them can act. But there’s no excuse for the one that claims to be an actor to be so bad at it. On the other hand, if the Housewives are scripted, then they can all act. The question is, act like what?

          1. It was a last ditch effort by the producers to try and get ratings, which didn’t work considering the show has been cancelled.
