Gretchen Rossi And Alexis Bellino Fired From Real Housewives of Orange County

Sep 26, 2013 06:00 AM


Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino have reportedly been asked not to return for the ninth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Rossi joined the hit Bravo series in season four and Bellino in season five, and though they were friends initially, they started fighting in season seven. Despite trying to patch things up last season, the ladies were at each others' throats again earlier this spring in a heated Twitter battle.

"Alexis and Gretchen were fired," a source tells Us Weekly. "They just had run their course. Gretchen has been on the show a long time, and it was the same old story." Ouch!

Remaining cast members include Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, and Lydia McLaughlin. Wonder who will replace Gretchen and Alexis?

She probably needs to unwind after the tense reunion specials!

Real Housewives of Orange County hottie Tamra Barney and husband Eddie Judge are currently enjoying a romantic vacation in Miami, and the reality star showed off her hard work in the gym by donning a skimpy turquoise and pink bikini.

The couple did just open their own fitness studio, so it's no wonder their bods are in such perfect shape!

The pair are gearing up for their big wedding special to air on Bravo on September 2, and we can't wait to see which of her fellow housewives made the guest list! After the reunion, we are going to guess Gretchen Rossi was definitely NOT in attendance!

The bride-to-be is coming to Bravo!

Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney just landed her own spinoff show about her upcoming wedding, the reality star announced via Twitter yesterday.

"I'm so excited to share my wedding with the viewers. They watched every transition I've made and am happy to be giving the opportunity to share our wedding too. My days right now are insane, planning a wedding, filming, running C.U.T. Fitness, 'Sweating for the wedding' and most importantly, being a Mommy. I couldn't be happier and am thankful to have found Eddie," she wrote on her account.

The blonde beauty and her beau are even taking suggestions about what to name their show from fans! Some of the options so far include Sweating 4 The Wedding and Third Times A Charm.

The couple recently celebrated their impending nuptials with a joint bachelor/bachelorette party in Las Vegas.

The mother-of-four has hinted there might be more than one ceremony, too!

"[We're] thinking about having two weddings. We're thinking about maybe going to Mexico with the kids and [our parents]... and then coming home and having a big fabulous wedding for hundreds of people," Barney told Us Weekly.

We can't wait for this!

Alexis Bellino Not Returning To Real Housewives Of Orange County

Sep 18, 2012 11:40 AM

RHOOC star Alexis Bellino is leaving the Bravo reality show after a three season run, a source revealed to Us Weekly.

"Alexis was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity," the source divulged. Apparently the blonde bombshell had already begun negotiations with the network for the upcoming season, but she ultimately "wanted to go back to her simple life in Orange County."

Last season was especially traumatic for the religious mother-of-three, as she fought repeated attacks on her character by co-stars Tamra Barney and former BFF Gretchen Rossi. The 35-year-old and her husband Jim Bellino were even forced to issue a statement in their defense after being labeled "phonies" by the cast.

"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. 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," the couple said at the time.

Although Bellino is supposedly set on her decision to leave the show, a Bravo rep told Us no official decision has been made. "We have not yet made any announcements about a season 8 pick up or casting."

The remaining brigade of blondes are going to need to find another punching bag!

Alexis Bellino Chops Off Her Hair!

Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino debuted a dramatic new 'do on her Twitter account today, and we love her new look! The 35-year-old removed her hair extensions and cut her tresses into a short, blond bob, and is it just us or does she look years younger?!

"I wanted to do this cut for over a year!" she captioned the snapshot. "After last season nothing scares me! Thoughts?"

Co-star Gretchen Rossi, who showed off a shorter style similar to Bellino's last month, let her claws come out over the makeover.

"Funny when people copy a lot of things you do! Weird or compliment," she tweeted.

The back and forth insult trading continued over the microblogging site, with Bellino getting the last word when she laid claim to longer locks in the future.

"Let's just put this fire out now... I'm probably putting extensions back in 365 days from now and I'm not copying anyone. I'm calling it now. LOL," she snapped.

Meow ladies!

RHOOC Star Alexis Bellino Considering Legal Action Against Fellow Housewife

Jul 24, 2012 01:00 PM

Real Housewives of Orange County co-stars Alexis Bellino and Tamra Barney have been enemies all season, but a comment made at the reunion show has turned their feud into an all-out war!

After Barney called Bellino 'Jesus Jugs,' the devout Christian and her husband Jim are considering legal action against the reality star, not solely because of the comment, but because of supposed slanderous remarks that were made throughout the season.

"The escalation of Tamra Barney's attacks has reached the level that we have been advised to take legal action. To be clear, Tamra's most recent statements are completely false. While her motivation may be to elevate herself by hurting others, the law does provide boundaries outside of which even she may be held liable. 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," the couple explained in a joint statement issued Monday.

Barney fired back, telling Rumor Fix why she made the hurtful comment in the first place. "Unlike Alexis, I don't need to hide behind the Jesus curtain and I don't feel the need to preach. When someone is constantly preaching about something they are lying! Alexis and Jim are faux Christians, like her ring. Does she think Jesus would be proud of her for judging me as a Christian, and the crosses in my house? Jim Bellino used to take Peggy Tanous to strip clubs after church when they were dating," she sniped.

Miss Barney is known for never backing down from a fight, so we'll just have to wait and see if her religious reality vixen rival will put her money where her mouth is!

Report: Real Housewives of OC Tamra Barney Is Engaged To Boyfriend Eddie Judge

Mar 7, 2012 12:04 PM

tamra_eddi_230.jpgReal Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney is engaged to her love of two years, Eddie Judge, according to reports.

The Bravo reality star, 43, and her sexy Latin lover, 38, began dating shortly after her messy split from then-husband Simon Barney in January 2010. Although Barney admitted she was scared off the idea of marriage after her divorce, she later professed that Judge was her "soulmate."

Although there has yet to be an official announcement from the happy couple, it has been reported that they are trying to keep their wedding news under wraps until they shoot the reunion special that will air on Bravo later in the year.

Wedding details, including whether the network will film the ceremony, are not yet known, but we have to wonder which other Housewives will score an invite to the big day?
