“Real Housewives of Orange County”: Gretchen & Alexis Not Returning for Season 9
Though a ninth season of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” has yet to be announced, two of the ladies already been given the boot.
E! News reports that Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino will not be back after season 8, which ended its run last month.
“Neither will be returning for season nine. The feeling is both of their journeys on the show have come to an end,” one source tells E! “Bravo is constantly looking at the casting and dynamics and it felt like time for a change.
Both women have been longtime stars on the original “Housewives” series, with Rossi joining in season 4 and Bellino being hired the following season.
While the insider adds that the show’s producers are already meeting with women to replace the outgoing duo, an announcement will likely be made closer to the premiere of the new season.
