Alexis Bellino certainly saw her relationships change on the last season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Previously, she told Celebuzz she wasn’t sure whether she would sign on for Season 8 as she licked her wounds after last season’s brutal reunion specials.

What does the Housewife need in order to return next season?

“If I do the show again, I would have to have a friend on the show with me,” she tells Celebuzz exclusively.

She later explains, “Who wants to go into a pack of wolves and not have anyone with her? I would definitely want to have a friend.”

Bellino certainly had a tough season as she and new castmember Heather Dubrow were like oil and water from the get-go. And to make matters worse, former enemies Gretchen Rossi and Tamra Barney called a truce that left Bellino out in the cold.

Bellino’s ultimatum for coming back on the show may stem from hurt feelings, as she felt ganged up on during the Season 7 reunion specials.

“I think we have a really good season and it was a really good cast,” she says. “But, I feel like it doesn’t have to be so hateful and mean all the time. We could still have a really good season, just not being so mean.”

In response to Celebuzz’s request for comment, a Bravo spokesperson tells us, “We have not yet made an announcement about a Season 8 pickup.”

Bellino, a married mother of three, joined the cast on its fifth season.

Do you think Alexis should be able to bring on a friend to even out the odds next season? Tell us in the comments section below.

    I think Alexis should not be asked to return to the show. She brings down the learning curve for the entire nation...

    Replace Alexis. She's a fake and brings nothing to the table. She's still in junior high....NEXT!
