Will Gretchen Rossi & Alexis Bellino Ever Be Friends Again?


Real Housewives of Orange County Stars Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi used to be BFF’s, but their friendship took a sharp turn when the cast told Alexis she was phony on their trip to Costa Rica in Season 7. So will the former friends ever be able to mend fences? Keep reading to find out!

In a new interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, Gretchen dishes about her current feelings towards Alexis, explaining Alexis and her husband Jim did and said something that affected Gretchen’s business.

Wetpaint Entertainment: What’s your biggest issue with Alexis right now?

Gretchen Rossi: The bullying claims. Anyone who voluntarily subjects themselves to the scrutiny of a reality show has no right to claim bullying.

Do you think she’s a hypocrite?

The last episode of this season, watch how all of them gang up on Slade and I. Am I supposed to cry bullying? No. Does Alexis stand up for me and say, ‘Hey, that’s bullying?” No. She jumps in on the fun. When she does it, it’s not bullying.

Will the two of you ever be friends again?

I’ll never say never. But lots of changes will have to be made before she and I can have a relationship like we once had. And it’s not just about the bullying stuff. She’s proven herself shady to me. She and Jim have both said and done things that affected my business. Why would I continue to be friends with someone who would do that to me? How many times can I keep giving her the benefit of the doubt?

Alexis had a similar answer when I asked her if she could ever be friends with Gretchen again in our exclusive interview. Alexis said, “[Friends] No. Acquaintances? Yes. But I can’t trust her with my friendship again. I don’t waiver or trade teams when times are tough with my friends. If you are my friend I am loyal to the bone, and I want that type of friend in return.”

  1. Gretchen, you don’t need her. She is so childlike, I’m sure that you would much rather be around adults.

  2. Finally a blog site thats not biased! im so sick of allabouttrh and all the constant trashing of gretchen and the ridiculous obsession they all have with fake phony pathetic alexis

  3. Ummm…Gretchen conveniently forgets that she pulled the “bully” card on Vicki last season, so her opinions about who and when people can “claim bullying” is meaningless. (btw Gretchen , Heather is now claiming “bullying” by fans…funny how she can perceive it when its directed at her but not the other way around, but that’s another story). I suspect that Gretchen is too upset about the avalanche of negative comments that she’s been getting and the huge number of fans she’s lost (which no doubt has to affect sales of her crap) to think clearly. Of course, I understand, she doesn’t want to discuss that aspect…she’s like to keep that obvious detail on the downlow. But thinking ahead, I do believe she is in a pickle — We all know that Tamra lies and backstabs her about her singing, and Lydia calls her and Slimey “dirty”, which only leaves Heather as a friendly castmember to her. So I ask the question — who will care enough to attend to any of the engagement/wedding festivities besides Heather? Will she end up admitting to her less than admirable behavior and beg Alexis and Vicki to forgive her? Personally, I would rather see her and Slimey booted off the show, but that’s not my decision, just my opinion.

  4. Alexis is confident in her marriage, has 3 cute kids she does not need to be friends with a phony opportunist like Gretchin. There is absolutely nothing endearing or gracious about Gretchin. Gretchin’s actions are absurd and embarrasing to watch. Could never figure out why she’s even on the show.

  5. Alexis is Better off without Gretchen as Gretchen is better off without Alexis.

    Gretchen proved to Alexis she’s a TURNCOAT and only need her when no1 else had her back , Gretchen has no need for Alexis and until there is some kind of opportunity that benefits Gretchen then she’ll continue hating her.
