It's definitely been weird that so many Real Housewives of Orange County cast members have left since Season 8, including Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, and Lydia McLaughlin. Some viewers have threatened to boycott the show because of the departures  but does Alexis herself plan to watch Season 9?

Alexis was on the show from Seasons 5 through 8, butting heads with a number of the ladies over the years. By the end of Season 8, Alexis had managed to patch things up with Tamra Barney but was still on the outs with former pal Gretchen.

Now, one of Alexis's fans is wondering if she is still keeping up with the show despite no longer being involved with it. "Are you going to watch the show at all?" asks Alexis's Twitter follower on April 14. 

So how did Alexis respond? You might be surprised! "Yes, but I get to chill and watch a year later if I want now! Lol," she writes. Alexis is apparently referring to the fact that all current cast members need to watch the episodes just before they air in order to write their Bravo blogs about the drama.

We love that Alexis is still watching her former co-stars on the show, but we also admire that Alexis does not sound bitter at all about leaving. And she clearly has a busy life without the show. Way to go, Alexis!

Are you surprised that Alexis still plans to watch? And do you miss seeing her on the show?
