Alexis Bellino endured one hell of a seventh season of the Real Housewives of Orange County and while she publicly announced that it had left her wondering if returning to the show was the best thing for her, many doubted that she’d ever walk away. Now, after three seasons with Bravo’s hit show, Alexis has had enough.

Of her sudden exit, an insider tells Us Weekly, “Alexis was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity.” Though she allegedly had begun the negotiation process for season 8 with Bravo, in the end, Alexis just “wanted to go back to her simple life in Orange County.”

After last season’s infamous “Jesus Jugs” comment by Alexis’ co-star Tamra Barney, she and her husband Jim Bellino were up in arms. In fact, they even threatened to take legal action against her after what seems to have been their final straw.

“The Real Housewives of Orange County is a reality show that is meant to entertain and engage audiences with the lives of its cast members,” the couple told Us in a statement, adding that they were considering taking legal action against Barney. “This vicious and malicious attack on our family will no longer be tolerated. We have continually tried to take the high road, however, if necessary, we are prepared to defend ourselves against these unfounded, slanderous and defamatory remarks to the fullest extent of the law.”

Regarding the insider’s revelation of Alexis’ exit, Bravo states, “We have not yet made any announcements about a season 8 pick up or casting.”

While the cast has yet to be announced, what we do know is that a casting call did take place for a new housewife in the O.C. and now that we’re down to four housewives, we’ll surely be getting at least one new lady — if not two.

      Oh thank goodness! Her level of dumbness was numbifying!

      Alexis is so f-ing annoying. And her and Jim insinuating that they EVER take the “high road” is laughable. She’s as scummy and b!tchy as any of the woman on that show, except the other women acknowledge that they are bad, drama filled people so you can laugh with them at their jokes (i.e. Jesus jugs, which was hilarious). Alexis’ holier-than-thou attitude got really old really quick. Her tourettes-like twitching in interviews and obsession with making everything about her made me want to continuously smack my head against the wall. She’ll be back once Jim divorces her after she does the cover-story about the emotional (and possible physical) brainwashing and abuse she so obviously succumbs to by being married to that a-hole of a husband.

        I agree that WHEN they get divorced Alexis will immediately claim that she “all- of-a-sudden” realizes that she was brain washed an manipulated by Jim. She NEVER owns up to her actions or decisions. She always has a reason or excuse why it’s someone else’s fault! Not going to miss her at all! Although I foresee still hearing about her in the headlines because of her crazy/dumb publicity stunts for attention or anything about the Bellino’s losing money, cars, house, etc.

      Finally! She’s so annoying trying to act like she’s can host a morning show & have a fashion line! Her husband is an idiot and she’s beyond stupid for letting him treat her like she “beneath him”! Don’t you just wanna slap her in the head and tell her “tell your husband to STFU and treat her as his equal”!

      Thanks God she is quitting, when she opens her mouth, i want to throw up.

      Alexis did not “choose” to leave, the producers and fans didn’t want her back!
