It’s true! Alexis is leaving ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County.’ Are YOU sad to see her go?

The Real Housewives of Orange County is losing one of its own, as Alexis Bellino confirms her exit from the series.

“After three seasons of appearing on The Real Housewives of Orange County, I have made the difficult decision not to return for season 8,” Alexis tells PEOPLE. “Although Bravo made me a very generous offer and I’m thankful to have had this experience, I will be leaving the show behind to focus on my family and other opportunities.”

“I am so grateful to have gone through this amazing journey and to have met so many incredible fans,” her statement continues. “My heart is at peace and I remain so excited for my future.”

“Alexis was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity,” an insider told Us Weekly about Alexis leaving the show.

Alexis has three children – James, 5, and twin daughters, 4-year-old Melania and Mackenna.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you sad to see her go?
