Alexis Bellino is sick of the cocktail induced cat fights especially since on last season's "Real Housewives of Orange County", she was ganged up on in nearly every argument.
But Tamra Barney, who openly dislikes Bellino and called her "Jesus Jugs" during the reunion special, is not stopping the attacks.

On Barney's Twitter she insinuated that Bellino is not quitting the show, but was fired. "Let's just say the story I read and what I was told does not match," Barney posted on Sept. 18, according to RadarOnline. "In my opinion her story is never straight!"
She continued: "not the same story I was told ...let's keep it at that," Barney wrote in reaction to Alexis leaving the show. "who leaves a successful show?"
In July, her and husband Jim spoke out about the verbal bullying and attacks their family suffered from Barney.
"The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' is a reality show that is meant to entertain and engage audiences with the lives of its cast members," the couple told Us Weekly in a statement, adding that they were considering taking legal action against Barney. "This vicious and malicious attack on our family will no longer be tolerated. We have continually tried to take the high road, however, if necessary, we are prepared to defend ourselves against these unfounded, slanderous and defamatory remarks to the fullest extent of the law."
Sources close to Bellino claim she does not want to deal with the drama that "Housewives" brings, and she especially does not want to deal with Barney.
"Alexis doesn't want to be a part of the show," a source told RadarOnline of her decision to quit. "She wants to have a normal life with her family, and that doesn't include all of the drama that comes with being on the show.
"Alexis knows that her children are the most important thing in her life, not being famous or being on television, so she made the decision to not be on the show and to return to her regular life."
An Us Weekly insider confirmed similiar sentiments: "Alexis was really tired of being bullied and chose home and family life over celebrity."
Though she is said to have begun contract negotiations with Bravo, Us Weekly reported, Bellino "wanted to go back to her simple life in Orange County."
A Bravo network rep, however, said, "We have not yet made any announcements about a season 8 pick up or casting."
In August, she told Star magazine, "Initially, I was leaning toward not returning after such a difficult season. But they asked me to come back. I'm soul-searching to make the best decision for me and my family."
As for her relationships with the "Housewives" cast members, all of them seem to be beyond repair except for her friendship with Vicki Gunvalson, which still remains strong.
"I feel sad that it reached the point it has with some of them. Vicki [Gunvalson] and I are still good friends. We speak every week and hang out when we get the chance."
