Alexis Bellino Threatens to Sue Tamra Barney Over Attacks on Religion

by at . Comments

The claws have come out between Alexis Bellino, her husband Jim and Tamra Barney. The legal claws, that is.

Days after The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion special, Alexis and Jim have released a statement in which they threaten to sue their castmate over recent remarks, most notably her insistence on referring to Alexis as "Jesus Jugs."

"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," the Bellinos said to Us Weekly.

"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.

"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."

Barney isn't likely to back down, however. She recently went off to Rumor Fix about Alexis and her hypocritical lifestyle.

"Unlike Alexis, I don't need to hide behind the Jesus curtain and I don't feel the need to preach. When someone is constantly preaching about something they are lying! Alexis and Jim are faux Christians, like her ring. Does she think Jesus would be proud of her for judging me as a Christian, and the crosses in my house? Jim Bellino used to take Peggy Tanous to strip clubs after church when they were dating!"

While it's possible Bellino won't even return to Bravo next season, one thing is for certain for now: It. Is. On.

Yes sue the bird brain Tamara and take all these dumb, ignorant people who leave comments and do not have a clue what Alexis is suing for to court too - IT's not for the JESUS jugs - it is for slamming her husband as a drug dealer!!!

Tamra deserves to be dragged to court - she should think before speaking! Maybe that will teach her a lesson!! Alexis keep your head high - you should leave the show, you and your family do not belong among the Hill Billies rejects of OC!

Why is Tamra Barney even on television? She has nothing to offer but a white-trashy look, stringy bleached hair, phony crying, and a bunch of stupid one-liners that prove she is entirely void of real intelligence. Always on a fault-finding mission to cover for her own depravity! Go away, Tamra. And take your nonexistent fitness studio and manufactured-for-TV engagement with you!

Tamra always feels the needs to always bully someone. Alexis suing her might have been a little too far but maybe tamra will finally realize that she's not a bad ass and she needs to watch what she says. Wouldn't be easier for her just to be nice to people and not instigate everything?

Omg Lynn- I like tamra but I agree that her crying looks ridiculous and fake. She always covers her face with her hands, and when she moves her hands her face isn't red and her eyes are ALWAYS dry! Maybe she just needs restasis!

Alexis sure doesnt mind saying bad things about people behind everyones back...tamera had the nerve to do it to her face...I think that there is alot more going on between jim and alexis that we dont get to see...I am a housewife and I enjoy doing everything I can to take care of my husband but I do little jobs on the side and my husband will step up and help out...Jim refuses to do anything and even complained when he had to get the kids dressed for school for alexis to do the fox 5 crap...I think it is very sad that she is treated like a servant...maybe alexis lashes out at people and constantly talks about what she has and what shes doing because she needs extra validation for being stuck in a slave type marriage

It is never okay to bully, Every year Tamara has had a target on the show and every year she has got a pass with making these outrageous claims. For these Tamara fans that are stating they should just take all these outrageous and damaging claims of Tamara's, that is sick and gives some measure of their intelligence. How would they respond to a neighbour that spread these type of things about them throughout the neighbourhood, never mind national tv. They have a family to protect and taking Tamara to court to prove these claims is the proper and legal way to go about it. They have decided the way to fight a bully is not by bullying back but to call a bully out. I say good for them, it is certainly about time someone did.
