Alexis Bellino is coming to reality TV. The blonde beauty is joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange Country for the show's...

Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino will be noticeably absent if you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online and catch up on last night's premiere.

Suffice it to say, returning cast members Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson aren't exactly what you'd call broken up over the exile of their former co-stars.

Tamra and Vicki know how to cut loose and have fun...if cutting loose and having includes posing as giant ears of corn.


The Season 9 opener saw Shannon Beador and Lizzie Rovsek taking over for the departed twosome, and for Tamra and Vicki, there is no love lost.

In fact, the ladies threw major shade at their former co-stars in a live television interview Monday on NBC's TODAY, admitting they don’t miss them.

At all.

“We ran them out of the O.C.,” Tamra said, to which Kathie Lee Gifford asked if they missed them and Vicki said, “I miss Alexis. Her and I are good friends.”

Like Beyonce, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Demi Lovato and many stars before her, Alexis Bellino has gone makeup free in a new Twit pic.

To inspire young women around the world and help them with their self-confident? Not exactly.

Alexis Bellino, No Makeup

More like to shill up a storm, considering the affiliated caption:

“I LUV my glowing skin after a facial by @cyndiallcottskintherapy & I don’t want to put makeup on! And thx Dr. Kobayashi and @aaronkosinsmd for keeping Jim & I young with the Botox. I’m refreshed! #nomakeup #nofilter.”

We'd scoff at Bellino's unabashed sell-out job here, but she does sort of need the money: Sources have confirmed that Alexis and Gretchen Rossi have been fired from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

The axe has come down on a pair of Real Housewives of Orange County cast members.

A Bravo insider tells Star that Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino have both been fired from the franchise, the former for making up facts about her life in order to get more screen time and the latter because producers didn't think she brought much to the show.

Neither will appear at all on Season 9.

Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin, however, have all been asked to return and will go into production on their new scripted controversies and fights later this month.

In related news, Taylor Armstrong is out of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Will you miss Alexis and Gretchen in Orange County?

While the world is still reeling from Miley Cyrus Twerking at the VMAs, the dramatic conclusion to The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8 will hopefully take our minds off Hannah Montana's Humpty Dancing.

Did anyone else ever imagine Miley Cyrus and the OC housewives being mentioned in the same sentence? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway. Let's get to it with THG's +/- recap!

The Real Housewives of Orange County Say Cheers

Andy's first question for Heather is about her house and the offer they couldn't refuse. The model of their new house is built and they hope to break ground by December. Plus 8?

Next he brings up Heather's return to acting and Terry's many attempts at joking his way through the stress of flying solo. Heather defends their on-camera fighting as part of real life after being together for 16 years. Plus 15.

Welcome back for Part Two of the The Real Housewives of Orange County reunion!

After the ladies grilled Gretchen on her maybe-more-than-friends relationship with a mystery dude during her late fiance' Jeff's illness - an event that happened SEASONS ago and was mentioned in passing during the 100th episode special - Andy Cohen will finally give the fashion maven a chance to turn the tables on the girls.

Will Gretchen get closure from her so-called "friends"? Ehhh, probably not. 

If there's one thing the previews tell us, it's that the ladies better be wearing waterproof mascara. Let's get started with our THG +/- recap, shall we?

Sitting Down With Andy Cohen

Minus 10 for hearing Vicki say "whoop it up" again. And Minus 15 for reliving Stripper-gate. 

Vomit. Minus 45 for hearing about Jim's Big Jim. OMG. Vomit and brain bleach and more vomit. And mouthwash.

Lydia says she'll be open with her kids about her mom's pot-smoking ways, thanks in part to the show. Vicki's never smoked pot and doesn't think her mom should smoke it either. Um. Okay then.

We might be finished with The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 8, but that doesn't mean Bravo's Andy Cohen is!

He'll sit down with the domestic divas and rehash the highs and lows of the OG Housewives' franchise. He's got Lauri Peterson in the house so we know this is going to be good.

We'll sit here with a glass of pinot to recap it all in true THG +/- fashion.

The Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion

First question to Vicki. Her divorce from Donn isn't final. Still. Two seasons later. Minus 3.

There's "no sense of urgency" because once she signs the papers she'll have to pay spousal support. Makes sense to me. Plus 8.

After Vicki peed Tamra's bed in Mexico, Tamra slept in it. Minus 25.

Tamra's planning to throw Gretchen a bachelorette party, so maybe those two made up in the off-season?

There's drama afoot at Vicki's end-of-season party on The Real Housewives of Orange County

But then it wouldn't really be an OC party without drama, now would it? No, it wouldn't.

Let's dissect the drama one more time with our THG +/- recap.

Gossip Girls

Slade and Gretchen arrive at Vicki's party and can't find anyone. Because they're all sitting around talking about Gretchen and Slade. Minus 12.

Slade pays Lydia an actual compliment and she calls him a douche anyway. Two wrongs and a right, or something, I guess. Minus 4.

Ryan tells Slade and Gretchen that Brooks isn't allowed on the property because he's not a great man and he's a liar and Brooks is bad. Vicki's on the phone with Brooks while that's all going down.

Another week, another episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County! Just what Monday night needs, right?

"The Time Is Now" for Gretchen and Slade as the buxom blonde will propose to her beau (finally)! And Vicki will make a surprising announcement about Brooks. But not before she can receive a new nickname, of course.

Let's get rolling with our THG +/- recap!

Winter Wonderland

Vicki's having Lydia and Alexis over to show them the new un-Donn'ed house. Vicki's thinking of having a party to show everyone the new house. But she's going to have a Winter Wonderland party outside. To show off the inside of the house. Okay.

Lydia says she feels like she likes Slade and then he talks and she doesn't like him anymore. Plus 3.

Vicki's looking for answers on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Gretchen, on the other hand, is looking to pop the question!

Oh, and Terry sold their house for $16.4 million dollars. No big deal. (Hey, remember when Tamra pretended to be Heather's realtor??)

Let's catch up with these OC Housewives with our THG +/- recap!

Heather Dubrow Is Happy

Gretchen's at home with her puppies, finally back in town from Canada and filling Slade in on the drama with Tamra. And apparently Heather sent her some pretty condescending text messages that make Heather seem like a Jealous Julie. 

Green's not a great color for you, Heather. Minus 12.

Terry takes Heather to a beautiful lot with a view of the harbor. $16,450,000 for their custom home. All because they need a 4th bedroom upstairs.

The ladies hit the slopes tonight on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Things heat up between Gretchen and Heather as more than just snowballs are thrown between them. 

Was this all part of Vicki's evil plan?

We'll find out now in our THG +/- recap!

Snow Angels Hit The Slopes

Lydia has a makeup artist come over to help her, uh, get dressed for the day. Minus 12.

She's taking all the girls to Canada to celebrate her Canadian-ness. Alexis brings her a Swarovski-covered Bible to take to Canada to protect her against the drama from the other ladies. 

Oh--charity event. That's why the makeup artist is there.
