In this preview for the next episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi come face to face for the first time since their friendship ended. Bellino and Rossi have not talked one-on-one since their friendship fell apart and in this scene, they search for resolution.
“I thought we were so close,” Alexis tells Gretchen. “Something that Tamra or nobody could touch.” Gretchen replies, “She [Tamra] didn’t.” An emotional Alexis tells Gretchen, “But… you weren’t the same. You pulled away, you became mean and it’s been really hard. And I had nobody last year, nobody. I was on an island.”
“It’s all about her and her being hurt,” Gretchen says in her interview. “I feel like she’s not giving me any reason to want to make amends and make this friendship work right now.”
“I felt like you did have me as your friend,” Gretchen tells Alexis. “And then when you started questioning me, that’s what started to put the rift between us.”
“I was such a loyal friend through and through with you,” Alexis tells Gretchen. “When everybody else was not liking you and talking bad about you and didn’t want to be your friend, I was there for you nonstop and I just felt like our friendship just kept going downhill. In Costa Rica, I just felt completely stabbed in the back.”
“I remember how much that night I kept saying, ‘She has such a good heart, you guys need to look at it from this point of view. I know what her intention is, it’s coming across wrong.’ But you questioned my true intentions and where my heart really was and that devastated me. Because, as you said you thought we were better friends, and I thought we were better friends too,” Gretchen admits.
“Sorry this is a two way street,” Gretchen vents in her interview. “I’ve already apologized to her. I don’t think I owe Alexis anything else!”
“I was the furthest thing from a bully to you,” Gretchen tells Alexis. “I was mad at you and I was frustrated, but I don’t want to fight with you anymore.”
