Alexis Bellino: I’m Not Returning to Housewives! Tamra Judge is MEAN!

Alexis “Jesus Jugs” Bellino really, truly hates that nickname, though she perhaps has even greater disdain for the woman who gave it to her:

Tamra Judge.

While Alexis did make an appearance on The Real Housewives of Orange County this fall, it was only to discuss divorce with Emily Simpson.

The former cast member may have filmed that scene, but she’s not coming back on a regular basis.

And according to a report by Radar Online, that is very much by choice.

What would keep the recently divorced Alexis from accepting a massive Housewives paycheck?

Tamra Judge, apparently.

Alexis just can’t stand her, and the report explains exactly why.


1. Alexis Bellino could have reclaimed her Orange!

“Andy Cohen personally asked Alexis to come back full time this season,” an insider reveals to RadarOnline.

2. Wildly, here was her answer:

“But she said no,” the source shares. Not many people are willing to pass up that kind of paycheck. This is especially true of people who were recently divorced.

3. Why TF would she do that?

The insider explains that Alexis turned down the offer “because she wants nothing to do with Tamra.”

4. She’s avoiding Tamra like the plague

“Tamra runs everyone off the show,” the source characterizes. She can be very supportive to some of her friends, but … yeah, she’s a lot.

5. Apparently it’s not even worth that hefty paycheck

“Alexis refused to come back,” the insider reiterates. “Because she won’t be around Tamra.”

6. And yet … she did appear on RHOC

Alexis Bellino: A New, Real Housewife

Welcome to The OC, Alexis Bellino!

The pretty blonde, who hails from the tiny town of Hannibal, Missouri, has been tapped as the latest cast member on The Real Housewives of Orange County.

An actual stay-at-home mother, Bellino lives in Southern California with her husband Jim and their three children.

According to Bravo’s press release, Alexis “keeps herself busy by being the best wife and mother she can, and when she does have a free moment, she likes to work out to keep herself looking and feeling her best.”

This doesn’t sound like the show’s typical, self-centered, spoiled star at all. How will she ever fit in with Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Jeana Keough, Lynne Curtin, and Gretchen Rossi?

Beliino is described by Bravo as a “spicy blonde who unabashedly lives life on her terms.”

That’s more like it!
