Alexis Bellino Explains Why She Came Back To Season 8 Of RHOC!


The fighting on The Real Housewives of Orange County has already taken an ugly turn when Alexis Bellino decided to accept Vicki Gunvalson’s invitation to attend Tamra Barney’s dinner party at CUT Fitness. The night ended with Alexis in tears, and Tamra telling her to “get the f*** out!”

“I definitely regret going to Tamra’s party,” Alexis tells Us Weekly. “Who wouldn’t?!?” Alexis explains she was reluctant to accept the invite. “I went with pure intentions, with the hopes that everyone was ready to move on . . . I just went in open minded, and I got the door shut in my face. Which is okay!”

After having a hard time with the women, including her former BFF, Gretchen Rossi, in Season 7, Alexis talks about why she quit the show. “I really did quit,” she admits. “I had a rough year last season,” she says. “I was just really down and in a sad place.”

So what changed Alexis’ mind? A phone call and her children. “I wanted to show them their mom’s a fighter,” Bellino explained.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
