I mean Tamra did accuse Alexis and Jim of some pretty big things! RHOC star Tamra Barney recently went on a rant to call both Alexis and Jim Bellino ‘Faux Christians’ as well as saying that Jim was a coke dealer only after saying she wanted to mend things with Alexis. Jim and Alexis are now fighting back and said in a joint statement,
“The Real Housewives of Orange County is a reality show that is meant to entertain and engage audiences with the lives of its cast members. We recognize that the personalities, drama and conflict of the show attract fans to the popular Bravo reality series. Unfortunately, some cast members use the show as a platform for personal attacks and character assassination, perhaps out of personal insecurity or simply to inflict pain. To the extent possible, we try to ignore this behavior. Recently, however, that has become all but impossible. The escalation of Tamra Barney’s attacks has reached the level that we have been advised to take legal action. To be clear, Tamra’s most recent statements are completely false. While her motivation may be to elevate herself by hurting others, the law does provide boundaries outside of which even she may be held liable. This vicious and malicious attack on our family will no longer be tolerated. We have continually tried to take the high road, however, if necessary, we are prepared to defend ourselves against these unfounded, slanderous and defamatory remarks to the fullest extent of the law.”
Tamra has since deleted the coke dealer comment on her twitter probably fearing it could get her in trouble. If they want to move forward with this lawsuit, they better have captured that photo! Do you think the Bellino’s are taking it to far?!
