Alexis Bellino shared "big news" via Twitter on Monday — she cut her hair!

The Real Housewives of Orange County star removed her long blonde hair extensions and cut her hair short. "I wanted to do this cut for over a year!" the 35-year-old mom of four tweeted. "After last season nothing scares me! Thoughts?"

Well, her fellow Housewives star Gretchen Rossi had a few "thoughts" to share. Rossi, 33, cut her hair short last month and claims Bellino copied her. "Funny when people copy a lot of things you do!" she tweeted of her frenemy Monday. "Weird or compliment?"

After fans agreed Bellino copied her look, Rossi wrote, "Love you guys! Thanks for all your tweets! I was trying to be different this season and have a different look than long hair, but I guess that went out the door! LOL!"

And Rossi also took issue with how Bellino teased her haircut as "big news" to her Twitter followers. "Funny! I didn't call the press!" Rossi tweetd. "I just did it!"

Bellino responded to the criticism Tuesday, writing, "Let's just put this fire out now . . . I'm probably putting extensions back in 365 days from now and I'm not copying anyone. I'm calling it now. LOL."
