The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Alexis Bellino Declares She’s An “Independent Woman” Following Divorce Announcement; Plus Should Bravo Give Alexis Another Chance On RHOC?!

Alexis Bellino wasn’t just celebrating America’s freedom this fourth of July – she was also celebrating her own.

The former Real Housewives of Orange County star took to Instagram and showed off how she celebrated her first fourth of July as a single woman.

Alexis spent the fourth having fun with her kids, which she documented in several posts on Instagram.

However, Alexis also made sure to also talk about her own independence while waxing poetic about America’s.

In one post, Alexis donned an American flag bikini and gushed about being an “independent woman.”

“Happy INDEPENDENCE Day friends! #july4th #independent #woman #letfreedomring #alisalduderanch #withmykids,” Alexis wrote.

Now that Alexis is Jim-free and is all about being a #independentwoman the question is – Should Bravo bring Alexis back to RHOC?

I asked that very question on Twitter when Jim shockingly filed for divorce and reception was a mixed bag. I will say more people than I expected were onboard with Alexis returning to RHOC.

Personally, I liked Alexis. Was she my favorite? No. Did she seem phony at times? Yes. Could single Alexis be good reality TV? Perhaps.

I think single Alexis might be worth looking into. Alexis can definitely push buttons, especially Tamra’s, and she’s still friendly with Vicki Gunvalson so it would a natural return in my opinion.

Somehow I think Alexis could be a different person without Jim. Only time will tell. But I think Andy and Bravo should definitely explore bringing Alexis back to the OC. And while they’re at it they can bring back Heather Dubrow too. Imagine the DRAMA!
