Remember a few months ago when The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino insisted that there was no way in hell she would be returning for another season? Well pretend like that whole news blip never existed because according to sources close to the Bravo set, Alexis is indeed back!
Rumor has it that Alexis was out – until her replacement backed out a few days before filming was to begin and so then Alexis stepped back into the fold and signed on for another season. Was she ever really out? Nobody seems to know for certain. What fans do know is that her control freak husband, Jim, absolutely hates that his wife is on television. He believes that she belongs at home wiping asses and runny noses while catering to his every demand.
I think that while the rest of the ladies have made no secret of not wanting to film with Alexis, the producers realized that this extra tall fembot is the catalyst to all the drama. Alexis offends people left and right, but is too dense to even understand why. The ladies have all tried to explain it to her, for her sake of course (and not the sake of ratings) but it’s always a failed effort. Alexis just doesn’t understand how the rest of the world can possibly perceive her as a bible thumping, self-absorbed dingbat. I guess the producers really are looking forward to watching the fur fly: Alexis vs. everyone else, for another season!
I guess in a way it’s good that she’s coming back. Last season wrapped with everyone so against her and the reunion just left things feeling pretty unfinished. If Alexis really had quit it would have looked like she simply ran from all the drama she helped to create. Now she has to face the ladies again while cameras roll and that should at least make things interesting. Are you glad Alexis is sticking around? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
