Could Alexis Bellino be a part of the upcoming 10th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County? Although the mother of three was reportedly fired from the series years ago, a new report claims she may be headed back.
On January 21, LALATE reported the following.
“St. Louis resident Jim Edmonds is now following all current RHOC cast members on Twitter. But he is also following former cast members as well. Why is Jim Edmonds following Alexis Bellino on Twitter? Bellino is from Missouri, and Edmonds, born in So Cal, is a resident of Missouri. So is Alexis going to be filming with RHOC this season? That remains unclear.”
“Yet, if you think that Jim Edmonds was following Alexis before this season just because of their Missouri connection, think again. Twitter reveals Jim just started following Alexis in the last few days.”
At the end of last year, as reported by the Inquisitr, Alexis Bellino had allegedly led fans to believe she was coming back to The Real Housewives of Orange County through her postings on social media. However, at the time, a source insisted to Radar Online that Bravo had no interest in bringing Bellino — or any other former members of the show — back for Season 10.
“Alexis is desperate for attention and by posting it likely is trying to get people think she is returning to the show, but she is not. Don’t believe what you see there. None of the old housewives will be coming back to the show for this season. Bravo has no interest in their story lines, which is why they were gone in the first place!”
Weeks after the story was shared, a second report surfaced, claiming Bravo was interested in bringing Jeana Keough back to the series. Days later, Keough confirmed the news on Twitter, telling fans she was “thinking” of returning to the show.
Of Keough’s possible return, a source told Radar Online the following.
“Bravo has reached out to Jeana. They have asked her what is going on in her life with the hopes of understanding what a potential story line for her could be.”
“Her daughter recently got married, her oldest son is dating someone new, and she has two exchange students that live with her and keep her busy!”
“Since the show was initially built around Jeana, it wouldn’t make sense for her to be a part-time cast member. Hopefully they would want to honor her legacy in the franchise and give her a full-time position.”
Alexis Bellino has yet to comment on news of a possible return.
