Rumors are still swirling that Alexis Bellino will return to the Real Housewives of Orange County in some capacity for season 18. This gossip is pure speculation at this point, but the former OC Housewife has said she’d be open to returning to the show in some capacity.

“I’m definitely excited and proud to be associated with the network, and I’d never want to say never,” she told Page Six at BravoCon. “And I’ll leave it at that.”

Alexis was spotted at Kathy Hilton’s holiday event with Heather Dubrow. The two posed for a photo together, with Heather gushing that she “loved catching up with old friends…@alexis_bellino.”

When it comes to Vicki Gunvalson‘s future on the OC franchise, it remains up in the air. Vicki appeared as a guest throughout season 17 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, but she has since made it clear that she won’t return for another season unless she’s a full-time Housewife.

“It’s all in or nothing. It would have to be on my terms, and that means financially, too. I’m not gonna go back down. I left at a certain number. Either you bring that number back, or what’s the point?” Vicki said in October.

The Real Housewives of Orange County will return for season 18 in 2024.
