We were pretty sad when Bravo decided not to ask Alexis Bellino to return for Season 9 of The Real Housewives of Orange County. We’d gotten to know our favorite blonde bombshell for four seasons and saying goodbye is always hard. But what’s this we hear about a return to television for Alexis? Read on to learn more!

“After a looooong day of filming, we deserved this dinner last night @gnsforever! You look gorgeous, but exhausted! Lol!! #backtowork #funday #la #cabtwaittoshare,” Alexis captioned a photo of her and pal Shawn Bowman having a few drinks.

Of course Alexis looks fierce in her black-and-white dress while her friend is rocking a fuschia top. Homegirl always looked stylish on RHOC, so it’s not surprising that she’s still dressed to the nines. But what could she and her bestie be filming?

It looks like we might have to wait to hear it straight from Alexis herself, because she hasn’t yet revealed what she is working on. We’d imagine there’s no return to RHOC in the cards for her, and since she doesn’t have any non-reality credits on her IMDb page, it would probably be a non-scripted show. That being said, perhaps she’s following in former co-star Heather Dubrow’s footsteps and scooping up some awesome guest roles on network TV.

Either way, we seriously hope to see Alexis on our TV screens in the near future. It’s barely been a season since she’s been gone and we miss her already!

What do you think Alexis is filming? Do you think there’s any chance she’d return to The Real Housewives of Orange County? Hit the comments!
