Alexis Bellino is back bitches!
We heard Bravo executives had decided to remove notoriously dumb blonde from the The Real Housewives Of Orange County cast, like the extra skin from one of Vicki Gunvalson's tummy tucks.
But, somehow Alexis has weaseled her way back onto the show!
How'd she do it?
A show insider explains Bravo never really wanted to fire her. Turns out the whole thing was just a dramatic contract negotiation!
According to our source Alexis was getting paid $200,000 to drink wine and gossip every season. She told Bravo that next season she couldn't be bothered to do a single day a filming for less than $300,000. She DEMANDED the network give her her raise, or she'd leave the show.
So, the network called her bluff and gave Mrs. Bellino the sharp pointy boot!
That's when — our insider tells us — Alexis got on her hands and knees and begged to be put back in front of the cameras.
They agreed, and now Alexis is back — for the same exact salary she got last season! HA!
Point - Bravo.
We still have no idea if Vicki is coming back. Sadface.
Guess we'll just have to wait till season 1000 (or whatever it is) starts filming to find out!
