Alexis Bellino is taking to her Bravo Blog to explain to viewers why she is able to move forward with Tamra but not Gretchen. Alexis says she has forgiven Gretchen, but the trust that was broken when Gretchen “threw their friendship away” will never come back.
Alexis writes, “Many of you tell me I should move on with Gretchen if I can move forward with Tamra, and I have to say this: I HAVE moved on with Gretchen. We are not enemies; we are not friends. A couple years ago, Gretchen and I were dear friends, and I had a deep trust, respect and love for her. When she threw our friendship away so easily, I saw her true colors. Once that deep trust with a friend is broken, it’s impossible to gain it back.
Tamra and I never had that trust or respect for one another because we only hung out a handful of times, and I think we always knew we were polar opposites. Today, Tamra and I are not claiming to be best friends; we have simply decided to look at what similarities we have rather than focus on our differences. It feels good to know she cared enough to reach out to me, and I’m glad we are able to hang out and have fun together, rather than fight. It’s easy to forgive, even though you don’t necessarily forget. . .
This leads into the next topic, which is Tamra’s dress shopping day debacle. I was so excited I was asked to share this special moment with Tamra. When Gretchen told me Tamra texted her that she didn’t want me there I immediately called Tamra. Tamra did not hesitate, stutter, or lie. She very clear and instantly said that she only told Gretchen she didn’t want me there because Gretchen was exhausting and she’d rather focus on her special day than spend hours on the phone arguing with Gretchen about who she invited. Tamra then proceeded to say that she 100 percent wanted me to share in her dress shopping day. So, that was all I needed to hear. I am not responsible for Gretchen and Tamra’s argument, I simply followed my heart.”
