Heather Dubrow is speaking out about her former co-star Alexis Bellino allegedly quitting the Real Housewives of Orange County. Heather, who joined the show last season, isn’t completely buying the story — and she’s not the only one.
Heather tells The Stir, “Well, I know a bit about the real circumstances under which she is leaving, and it’s not how she’s portraying it to the press.” When Alexis first announced that she would be leaving the show, Tamra Barney also hinted that she didn’t leave on her own.
Heather adds, “I will tell you this much, I think she should come back but I’m not really sure it was her choice.” In other words, producers didn’t want Alexis to return.
Heather and Tamra seem to know what they are talking about. Shortly before Alexis told press she was leaving the show after three seasons, producers sent out casting calls for OC housewives. It looks like they wanted her out long before she “wanted” to leave.
Heather Dubrow and the cast of Real Housewives of Orange County began filming season 8 late last month. No premiere date has yet been set.
