Alexis Bellino is taking to her Bravo Blog to explain to viewers she wishes her friend, Lydia McLaughlin, would be more understanding with what she’s been through with the women on RHOC before suggesting she make amends so quickly. Alexis also says Tamra Barney’s speech was shocking and brave, but it doesn’t excuse her behavior today, and that everyone has a troubled past.
Alexis writes, “When Lydia and I met for coffee, I really didn’t expect her to keep asking me to be the one to reach out. It’s frustrating, and I truly don’t feel she is putting herself in my shoes. By the time we filmed this, we had known each other for quite a few months. We’d had many serious talks, and we had hung out on several occasions, and I feel she should have a better understanding of the dynamic between the girls and me. It’s not necessary that she agrees with me, but I had hoped she would respect my decision and support me, whether it’s the same choice she would have made or not.
Tamra’s speech was shocking and eye-opening. It doesn’t excuse her behavior, but it definitely helps me understand her. None of us have had a “perfect” upbringing. We have all have experiences from our past which explain certain behaviors we have. It’s how we handle these behaviors that determine and mold our character.”
