Alexis Bellino Reveals She Turned Down An Offer To Return To RHOC And Admits She Wanted To Appear On Marriage Boot Camp With Ex-Husband Jim Bellino!

Alexis Bellino recently revealed that she was offered a role on the current season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, but decided to decline the offer. The mother-of-three also opened about her divorce from ex-husband Jim Bellino.

“I was offered and I said no. I was offered a main role or a ‘friend’ role [for season 14],” Alexis revealed on Us Weekly’s “Hot Hollywood” podcast on Wednesday, November 6. “I don’t know if they’re going to call again or not, but I honestly just don’t want the drama again in my life. It’s kind of toxic for me.”

Alexis added that she is good friends with current cast members Emily Simpson and Kelly Dodd. “They both are begging me. They’re like, ‘Please come back.’ I just think I’ve turned that chapter,” Alexis said, noting that the series wouldn’t be great for her relationship with her boyfriend, Andy Bohn, whom she calls Drew.

“Drew is going to be in my life for good,” she explained. “I don’t want to bring that into our relationship.”

However, a source close to production revealed that there are no plans to bring back Alexis. “She was asked to do a cameo and film one or two things with her friend Emily, but not in any full-time capacity,” the source told Us Weekly.

Alexis is currently appearing on Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition with her mother, Penelope. The former RHOC star revealed that she and her ex-husband Jim Bellino were originally offered a role on the show.

“I was willing to go, Jim was not,” Alexis, who revealed she is “emotionally heightened” during the season of the WEtv hit reality show. “It takes two to tango. … In hindsight, Jim and I should have gone.”

“It’s still a little bit rocky, here and there. … It was very, very unhealthy when the divorce first happened. We were both really broken,” Alexis explained, noting that Jim had a new girlfriend shortly after their split. “[She] was causing some issues between us. Now that she’s out of the picture, things are a lot better. And we’re really worked on just trying to be good friends and be healthy for the kids.”

Alexis and Jim finalized their divorce in August 2018. The former couple are still working on their co-parenting relationship for their three children; son James (13) and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna (11).
