Alexis Bellino is back on Real Housewives of Orange County and is clearing up something from the season premiere in her Bravo blog! Tamra Barney said she was being sued by the Bellinos, but Alexis is shedding light on what exactly transpired with that. Check out what Alexis reveals about the drama from season seven that is spilled over onto season eight:
There is one thing I want clear up from this episode, and that is that I WAS NOT suing Tamra for the “Jesus Jugs” comment. You cannot sue for blasphemy, so it’s ridiculous for Tamra to even make that statement (although we should all pray right now!). Jim and I went through a year of Tamra making false accusations, spreading false rumors, and telling lies and we were tired of it. You CAN sue for defamation, slander, and libel and that is exactly what we were prepared to do if she didn’t stop. Once we met with our attorney and heard our rights, we knew we had a case. I have all the tweets saved, all the quotes documented, and we had enough evidence to pursue a case, so we made it known. And I guess she got the point (that we would have sued her) because she shut up.
With that said, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I can handle criticism. Tamra can call me Jesus Barbie, Jesus Jugs, dumb, ugly, horrible, worthless, gold digger. . .etc. However, she is not entitled to spread lies, attempt to ruin our family name, or affect my husband’s ability to earn money. With that said, I am not a fighter. But you better be damn sure to know that I have a pair of boxing gloves buried in my heart, and they are prepared to come out when my family is under attack. I think we all have that in us. . .that horn that comes out when it involves more than merely ourselves, that gun that fires when someone involves our precious families. I will fight to the end before I lay down and let anyone heartlessly drag my family down.
Do you think Tamra should have been sued, or should Alexis expect this as a participant in a Real Housewives show and just play the game?
