Heather Dubrow is taking to her Bravo blog to discuss the season premiere of the Real Housewives of Orange County. In the episode, Alexis was not invited to her clambake while the rest of the ladies were. Heather says she didn’t feel the necessity to invite her seeing as how Alexis had no friendship with anyone except Vicki. Heather talks about the history behind that, and affirms that Alexis was not “excluded.”
Alexis. This is hard, because Alexis and I are in a much better place now — and I don’t want to jeapordize that. So, I will try and go back to that time without starting anything new. . .Bear with me. After the reunion last year, I held out the proverbial olive branch (champagne), and then Alexis and I stood in the parking lot and apologized to each other for a lot of hurt feelings and misconceptions, but mostly this:
I was sorry for Costa Rica. Not the content of what I said, but that when she brought it up at the table, I should have shut it down and taken the conversation private. It wasn’t necessary for everyone to chime in.
She apologized to me for maligning my career — which was very hurtful to me, especially when she barely knew me.
This is where Alexis and I disagree. . .
After we had made up, She gave an interview about me and said things that were very unkind. It really hurt me because I thought we were in a new place. She has her own opinion about what happened after the reunion, but from my point of view I went into this season feeling betrayed by her and that is why I didn’t “want her in my life.” I felt she owed me an apology.
So, that is my frame of mind at this point.
Also, she wasn’t “excluded” from my clambake, she just wasn’t “included.” Alexis had no relationship with me, Tamra, or Gretchen. It didn’t make sense.
When Jim and Alexis are in their house talking about my party, Alexis says I should apologize. I feel I already did. I was still waiting for mine. . .
Then, hearing Alexis talk about my acting career again, right out of the gate felt punitive. She knew it would hurt me. I’ve never commented on her dress line or her hosting skills, and I was very supportive when she had a cameo on General Hospital last year. I wish she had left it alone. (Side note: Alexis did warn me that she said that so I wouldn’t be completely blindsided. It still stung, but I appreciated the heads up).
I think Alexis WAS excluded because she’s still part of the cast and this was obviously a cast event, however, on the other hand it does make sense that Heather would not invite her since she was hosting this at her house and she was not friends with Alexis. Do you think Heather should have invited Alexis even though she was unsure of where they stood at the time?
