Bravo is currently filming the 5th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County with a new housewife in tow. Alexis Bellino, 32, is the latest Bravo housewife. Alexis is described as being a friend of Gretchen Rossi.
Alexis who is from Newport Coast is described as a stay-at-home mother of three. There are conflicting stories on wether or not Alexis is replacing OC veteran, Jeana Keough. The OC Register is reporting Jeana will not be back, while other reports have stated Jeana will be returning.
The one thing we are certain of is that Alexis will be on the show. Alexis’s husband is Jim Bellino, 47. Jim is described as an entrepreneur who use to own a pool table business that was an $8 million-a-year-profit company.
In a new interview with the OC register, Alexis describes filming with the other women – “It has been amazing. I already knew Gretchen. Lynne (Curtin)’s a sweetheart. She doesn’t have a mean bone in body. Vicki (Gunvalson) and I joked and laughed and had a good time. But there’s drama anytime you get five women together.”
Unlike Kelly Bensimon of the NY Housewives, Alexis describes herself as an addict of the show and has seen every single episode.
This should make for an interesting new season. I love the fact that she just happens to be a friend of Gretchen. Alexis is obviously easy on the eyes as is Gretchen. So it might be safe to say Tamra Barney will spend the entire season on trying to “out” her on something, or accuse Alexis of trying to be like her.
