It looks as if Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino may not be back for the ninth season of BRAVO’s Real Housewives of Orange County. According to E! Online and other sources, the two were recently fired from the cast.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Alexis was not brought back,” says Dorothy Cascerceri, host and executive producer of Celebrity Corner. “She was the outcast of the group and things got so bad that she became a total brown-noser to the others just to keep peace. Peace does not equal ratings, so she has become somewhat obsolete. She also has nothing else interesting going on personally.”
“Gretchen, on the other hand, has a wedding to Slade coming up and a baby in the near future, most likely—two excellent plot lines that will hook viewers.” With all that going on, Dorothy is not so sure about the rumor she has been fired as well despite multiple sources reporting Gretchen was also canned. We’ll just have to wait and see on that one when Bravo finally decides to release a final cast list for next season.
