To put it bluntly: It stunk being Alexis on Tuesday night’s “Real Housewives of Orange County.” Despite the ladies’ fun zip-lining excursion on their all-girls trip to Costa Rica (which, by the way, Alexis thought was in Mexico), tensions were pretty obvious between Alexis and “Teather” (a.k.a. Tamra and Heather).
Itching for attention (since Teather did a fine job at ignoring her the entire day), Alexis brings up the “white elephant” in the room at dinner and confronts Heather about her hubby’s comment about her being “phony.” Although Heather apologizes for the comment, she, along with Tamra, were prepared to proceed with some verbal spanky spanky.
Their plan of attack? To help Alexis understand she’s a superficial fembot. And although they aren’t sure she’d understand their vocabulary, they go ahead and tell her she comes across as “pretentious,” “materialistic,” and “superior,” which makes Alexis look angry and confused (circuits can’t compute properly with so much rain and humidity). But what really punches her in the
nose heart was when Gretch chimes in, agreeing with the ladies (albeit gently) that she does indeed come across as a classless braggart.
See how money talks…and fights right here as Alexis tries to defend herself:

What the clip above doesn’t show is that Alexis shortly thereafter explodes into tears as Tamra unleashes her fiery temper, telling her to just be REAL! Alexis blasts her right back by saying she wrote the book on being a mean freak!
And the dinner from hell (with Vicki’s open-mouthed close-up shots in tow) continues next week…
