Is there anything sadder than a reality star leaving their reality show? The answer is yes, there are a billion things sadder, but that doesn't change the fact that Alexis Bellino is leaving the "Real Housewives" franchise.
Bellino will not be appearing on the upcoming season of Bravo's "Real Housewives of Orange County" after three seasons, E! News has confirmed.
"She wasn't invited back," a source tells us. "The crew was tired of her complaining and diva ways. They were also tired of her fame-seeking husband."

The day's top national and international news.
Bellino, a stay-at-home mom, joined "Real Housewives of Orange County" in season five, with quotes like "God is my savior, my husband is my king, and my body is sinful" and "I thank God every day for my life, and you would too" as her opening credits introduction. The cameras followed her life with her husband, entrepreneur Jim Bellino, and three children, James, Melania and Mackenna.
A rep for Bravo tells us: "We have not yet made any announcements of a season 8 pickup or casting."
Will you watch the new season without Alexis?
