The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Gretchen Rossi and Alexis Bellino have been fired, according to Star Magazine.RELATED: Gretchen Rossi May Put Wedding On Hold For Baby
Star‘s sources say Rossi got in trouble with producers during the just-finished season 8 because of her lack of storyline. And as Star previously reported, she even made up her engagement to Slade Smiley to stay relevant on the show. But sources say it didn’t work!
Gretchen sobbed on the reunion show in August after her co-stars asserted that her engagement was phony.
Meanwhile, Bellino was already axed from the show before season 8, but was brought back at the last minute when a new cast member dropped out, sources told Star.
But never fear, OC housewives fans! Producers have asked favorites Tamra Barney, Vicki Gunvalson, Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin back, Star reports, and season 9 starts filming this month.
