Alexis Bellino Says She’s Open To Film More RHOC Cameos In Future Seasons But Will Not Film With Tamra Judge!

Alexis Bellino recently revealed that she turned down the offer to return to The Real Housewives of Orange County for the show's current season. If you recall, the mother-of-three told several media outlets she had been asked back for Season 14.

Alexis told TooFab that she noticed a source close to production had responded to several of those publications' requests for comment, stating, "[Alexis] was asked to do a cameo and film one or two things with her friend Emily, but not in any full-time capacity."

According to Alexis, "the real story" is that the head producer of "RHOC," Douglas Ross, called her and said, "Would you consider coming back?" Alexis said she replied, "No, I'm sorry."

"We had a long conversation, I filled him in on my whole divorce, I told him everything that was happening in my life, and I just said, 'No, I think I'm in a really zen place, and I don't want to go back,'" Bellino recalled.

Two days later, she said she got a call from Andy Cohen, who she said asked her, "Why are you doing all these other shows and you won't do 'Housewives' again?"

"I told him why and was really brutally honest with him," Bellino told TooFab, adding that there were several subsequent phone conversations with Doug and Andy. Bellino admits she couldn't remember which of the two said it, but she distinctly remembers being asked, "What about a friend role?"

In the moment, she declined the offer, but after giving it some thought, she called back one of the two producers and said, "I'll go back on and just tell America, like, fill everybody in on my life right now. But I will not film with Tamra. Do not even bring her... She better not even be in a 20-mile radius of me! And I want it to be a happy thing. I'm in zen. I'm in happy mode. I don't want any toxic[ity]."

"So they brought me back for the cameo -- great, love it, I'll do that again next year," Alexis told TooFab. "So take that for what you want. When I said I was asked back, somebody calling me and saying, 'Would you consider coming back? Will you come back?' that's what I took it for. I'm not trying to overstep. I mean, I have nothing to win by saying I was asked back or I wasn't asked back; I'm just giving you what really happened. That's the real."
