Alexis Bellino OUT of Real Housewives of Orange County – Fired or Quit?

Alexis Bellino OUT of Real Housewives of Orange County – Fired or Quit?

I guess Alexis Bellino really couldn’t take the Orange County heat any more because sources are confirming that while the Real Housewives of Orange County star began contract negotiations, she has since opted to leave the show all together.  Not the most shocking thing considering that by the end of last season Alexis had managed to either insult or alienate most all of the ladies of the OC cast. They thought they were doing her a favor by pointing out that she came across like a pretentious blow up doll and neither Alexis nor her (puppet master) controlling husband, Jim, ever took it with a shred of grace. Alexis did what she always does. She patted herself on the back while playing victim in front of the cameras. According to Us Weekly, enough is finally enough for “Jesus Jugs”. (Hey, Tamra Barney called her that first, not me!)

“Alexis was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity,” the insider explains of Bellino’s decision to stop filming. Though she is said to have begun contract negotiations with Bravo, the former Housewife “wanted to go back to her simple life in Orange County.”

At one point the Bellino’s were seriously considering taking legal action against cast mates, such as Barney. They’d even issued a statement through Us saying,

We have continually tried to take the high road, however, if necessary, we are prepared to defend ourselves against these unfounded, slanderous and defamatory remarks to the fullest extent of the law.”

Thankfully, that drastic step was never taken but it seems to me, after threatening such a thing the writing was pretty much on the wall here for Alexis. I have to wonder if she began contract negotiations just to be able to say that she did. I wonder if there was ever any real intent to ink a deal for another season. Do you think Alexis was ever coming back?

I’m sure she’ll be pretty easy for Bravo to replace. It is Orange County where surgically crafted bodies and blonde extensions are a dime a dozen. I just wonder if the next chick in the door will be as much of a dingbat as Alexis has been. One can only hope! N Will you miss her?

    I stopped watching because I couldn’t take Tamra screaming the ‘f’ word every other word and telling everyone off.
    Then cries like a baby if anyone looks at her crosseyed. Pathetic
    Also, I do like Vicki, but when she starts losing control. she screams so loud. It reminds me of Jerry Springer show.
    They all could do some good and follow the actress, the one that is married to the Dr.. She is
    1.polite
    2.well mannered
    3.classy
    4.doesnt lose control and make an a** out of herself
    5. dresses great and so does her *real* friends in real life..
    6. more natural with the hair and make-up
    I honestly cant see her on this show anymore because she just has too much class to hang around these foul mouthed loser women anymore. She will realize they will bring her down and I hope she uses another route to get her acting career going again!
    I cannot handle the Barbi Doll any more either.
    She looks like a 50 year old
    Hooker, prostitute, all nude cheap lap dancer.
    And she has the worst hair…
    ( well they all have bad hair except the brunette.)
    Alexis is pretty and is a family woman. I think she is doing the right thing by leaving, and I believe she decided to leave.
