While there are always rumors of former Real Housewives stars returning to the show, a lot of those rumors end up being unsubstantiated. However, a new post by former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino has fans wondering if she is indeed returning to the series. So what’s going on?

As devout followers of the show know, Alexis unveiled relatively recently that her and longtime husband Jim Bellino are getting a divorce. She also ended up debuting a new boyfriend in the midst of that. Also, at the same time, Jim is in a legal battle he initiated with star Tamra Judge due to some comments she made regarding him.

So what makes fans think Alexis could potentially be returning to the show?

Alexis took to Instagram yesterday to share a photo of herself in a bikini, but the caption is what has fans talking, specifically at the beginning where she writes, “Exactly 2 weeks until filming starts…”

The rest of the caption goes on to read, “the Divorce caused havoc on my body. I dropped 15 lbs overnight at the beginning of it (it’s called the “divorce diet” lol). Then I instantly gained 25 lbs back the minute I touched food again. So my body has been through a lot over the past 8 months. It still isn’t where I want it to be yet, but with the love & support of my beau, and @jakebarrena gnarly training sessions, and @gritcycle and @orangetheory  and clean eating, I’m taking control back and in two weeks I am determined to be where I want. (Swimsuit from Top Shop Nordstrom) 💕#dontstop #nevergieup #letsdothis.”

While there is no mention whatsoever of what Alexis is filming for, it makes sense why people would tend to think it is for RHOC, as that is where she got her start and she definitely has a story to tell at the current moment with everything going on in her life.

While it remains to be seen if this is what she will be filming for, make sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
