Alexis Bellino finally returned to the Real Housewives of Orange County fold on this week’s episode, and it sounds like she couldn’t have picked a better way to get face to face with a fellow Housewife again. She met Vicki Gunvalson’s grandson, Troy!

Alexis is the only Housewife so far to meet the little guy, and it was love at first sight.  

“How freaking cute is that baby?” Alexis wrote in her Bravo blog. “I just couldn’t quit smelling his little head the entire visit!”

Say it with us: Awww! But Alexis’ time with Troy didn’t just give her the warm fuzzies, it kicked up some other feelings altogether.  

“On that note, I am truly having baby fever,” she wrote. “The only problem is that I can't figure out a way to get Jim on board for Bambino Number 4 (and I kind of need him for this...). If anyone has any advice please share it with me!”

Even though this was a relatively smooth re-entry into RHOC for Alexis, she was still the subject of some drama! Elsewhere in Orange County, Heather Dubrow was making some kind of snide comments about Alexis’ accessories, and Alexis was none too pleased when she found out.

“Heather making the remark about my cubic zirconia is uncalled for,” she wrote. “The fact is (and I explained this to all the women) that I only wore a cubic zirconia to Costa Rica because it was unsafe to wear my real diamond wedding ring.”

Sounds pretty reasonable! But apparently Alexis couldn’t convince herself as well as she convinced us.  

“However, thanks to the women making fun of me, I have since given my extremely nice cubic zirconia away,” she continued. “I wear an eternity band now when I travel without Jim. It's sad and irritating that I let their comments affect me, but the truth is that it did. Calling me phony for wearing it is actually incorrect. It's the exact opposite of phony. If I had NOT admitted that I wore a cubic zirconia, then THAT would have been phony. I was authentic and honest about the CZ, and I didn't hesitate to tell them. I honestly never thought it would have offended the ladies so much.

Honestly? We’re with Alexis on this one, but we’re also not sure why anyone on the show was so up in arms about this whole conversation, Alexis included. Then again, we’re not sure about a lot of things these ladies do!
