Alexis Bellino has been opening up about The Real Housewives of Orange County and her marriage to Jim Bellino. For starters, Alexis recently revealed on Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood podcast that she turned down an offer to return to the RHOC. Plus, she admitted that she should have done Marriage Boot Camp, and revealed that she wanted to do it but Jim did not. Alexis also opened up about how she was able to overcome all of the divorce drama. Now she’s moved on with her life and is co-parenting her children with her ex-husband, Jim.
Alexis and Jim split in 2018. Alexis said, “[Jim’s girlfriend] was causing some issues between us. Now that she’s out of the picture, things are a lot better. And we’ve really worked on just trying to be good friends and be healthy for the kids.”
Alexis shared, “It was very, very unhealthy when the divorce first happened. We were both really broken.” They are in a better place now and are focused on raising their children James, 13, and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna, 11.
Alexis was asked to join Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition with Jim, but he turned it down. Alexis then filmed the show with her mother, Penelope. Alexis said, “I was willing to go, Jim was not. It takes two to tango. In hindsight, Jim and I should have gone.”
Alexis also revealed that she’s been offered a position on the RHOC, but she doesn’t want to let cameras in her life right now. As of right now, she’s not coming back full-time to Orange County. Alexis shared, “I was offered and I said no. I was offered a main role or a ‘friend’ role [for season 14].”
Alexis added, “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. I just think I’ve turned that chapter.”
Plus, she doesn’t think that it would be good for her relationship with boyfriend, Andy Bohn. She shared, “Drew is going to be in my life for good. I don’t want to bring that into our relationship.”
I would be all for Alexis coming back to the RHOC! I’d love that. Even if she won’t return full-time, I have a feeling we will see her again on the show at some point!
