What REALLY Happened With Alexis Bellino’s RHOC Contract!

Now that we know Alexis Bellino is officialy returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County full-time, what really happened? At first she released a statement sayings she was leaving the show to focus on her family, then reports surfaced she was filming for Season 8, and now she’s back! Star Magazine is reporting that Alexis was demanding a bigger salary, and Bravo called her bluff!

Alexis was looking for a $100,000 pay hike to take her wages to $300,000 a-year. But, at the end of Season 7, Bravo called her bluff and didn’t renew her contract, according to Star. This left Alexis practically begging Bravo for her job back! The network accepted Alexis back at her current pay rate, and this has left some of her cast mates angry, Star reports! “The rest of the cast thinks she’s an egomaniac and are furious,” an insider reveals.

Tell Us- Do you think Bravo should have brought Alexis back?

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.

    Ugh, just when I was excited she wasn’t coming back. She doesn’t even contribute anything to the show, except a couple of laughs at the completely stupid things she says.

    Don’t like her, why is she really coming back? if she wanted to take care of her family, and focus on them. Then what happen! maybe she really needs the money, to make her look fake.

  • I agree, she doesn’t bring anything to the show. I’m bored with her already and the show has not even started, yet.
