Has Alexis Bellino had enough of the drama on The Real Housewives of Orange County?
According to US Weekly, the RHoOC star has decided to part ways with the show and won’t be back for Season 8, following some serious back-and-forth over the issue. However, both Alexis and Bravo have yet to confirm her departure.
During Season 7, Alexis definitely became the odd woman out on the show as her former friend Gretchen Rossi made nice with former rival Tamra Barney and newcomer Heather Dubrow.
An insider for US claims that Alexis’s ultimate decision to leave the show has stemmed from the fact that she “was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity" and that she "wanted to go back to her simple life in Orange County."
Alexis told Wetpaint Entertainment she felt that “ganged up and bullied” by her co-stars and said in August that she’d been invited to return for a fourth season but that she was still weighing the decision. “Initially, I was leaning toward not returning after such a difficult season… But they asked me to come back. I’m soul-searching to make the best decision for me and my family,” she explained. Her husband Jim Bellino has been completely outspoken about his preference for her to quit the show, saying “I absolutely do not want her on the show. But Alexis will do what she wants to do. It’s completely her call.”
We're sure Alexis will make the best decision for her, but we really hope she comes back to the show!
