Alexis Bellino, a former Orange County Housewife, has doubled down on her statement that she will not be returning to the show full time.

"I would do a cameo again, but I really feel like that chapter has turned for me," Alexis revealed to HollywoodLife. 

"I love the time I've had on there, I learned a lot too. It was a great experience and I will do another cameo, but that book has closed. I have three kids now, and we're busy." 

Last week, it was reported that Tamra Judge is the real reason that Alexis does not want to become a full-time cast member after making a surprise appearance during last week's episode.

"Andy Cohen personally asked Alexis to come back full time this season," an insider told Radar Online. "But she said no because she wants nothing to do with Tamra.

"Tamra runs everyone off the show. Alexis refused to come back because she won't be around Tamra. Alexis agreed to film just one scene. She has no interest in being around Tamra, who she thinks is just a mean person."
