Back in 2003, while married to her first husband Jeff Barry, Alexis took some rather sexy shots for the Men’s magazine Maxim. She was representing her then hometown La Jolla, California. The non-professional looking photos look to have been taken by Alexis and then submitted to Maxim. More of the photos are posted below.
According to the Maxim website, Alexis is listed as being 5’7″ and weighing 123 lbs. Her profession is listed as Health club manager, her favorite artist is Madonna and she is listed as married. She would go on to divorce her first husband later on that year.
As for her passion, Alexis says, “I have a passion for fitness and spoiling my two teacup chihuahuas.”

The Bachelor’sJake Pavelka has narrowed down his final choices of bachelorettes to the final 2, and according to our Bachelor poll, an overwhelming 81% of you are pulling for TenleyMolzahn to win Jake’s heart.
Another person who seems to be rooting for Tenley is someone all too familiar with the situation. Former BacheloretteJillian Harris reveals to UsWeekly that she is Team Tenley, while her fiance Ed Swiderski is pulling for Vienna.
UsWeeklyinterviewed both Jillian and Ed, during which they shared their thoughts on this season’s Bachelor, and discuss their openness to having a televised wedding.
Us: What are your thoughts on the women on this season’s Bachelor?
ES: We had a chance to meet most of the girls, and I still take them at face value, yes I’m biased because I went through the ringer with you guys, but the truth is I read that stuff and I’m like she’s [Vienna's] a normal person, she really is, yes she’s gone through some weird stuff, she had some fun and whatever she did, but she’s been pretty loyal to Jake as far as we know.
JH: The thing is everyone has a past, everyone was young and dumb at one point, everyone was vulnerable at one point, everyone has made mistakes, we all have our skeletons in the closet, and maybe she has more for whatever reason. If he picked her or if he picked any other girl, it doesn’t even — we hope that it will last, but in the grand scheme of things this is supposed to be fun and it’s supposed to be light-hearted and there’s so many more awful things in the world to stress out about. For me I just look at it and am like well she probably shouldn’t have done all the bikini shoots and maybe shouldn’t have signed up for the show but everybody is human and all those girls on the show deserve to find happiness. Not one of them is a vindictive awful bad person.
Us: Having been on the show and talked to Jake, who’s your preference? JH: I’ve always thought Tenley was a good person for [Jake].
ES: They come off as the perfect couple I think because they’re both religious, they’re both praying to end up together. But who knows. Maybe Vienna is a better person than she’s being portrayed. Ali I don’t know, there’s something about her that rubs me the wrong way. She was a bit too sassy for my liking. I think she was cute, a great-looking girl, great personality, intelligent but maybe she was a little too sassy. She left a little too easily I thought. Us: What advice would you give to Jake?
JH: It’s so hard because as much as you say hang on tight, don’t listen to what anyone says, lean on your friends and family, it’s hard.
ES: It’s got to be like one-on-one get through it together, otherwise you won’t. you can’t just say ignore it, it’ll go away, because it’s not going to go away. You have to learn how to deal with it and either improve your relationship or move on.
It’s about that time! That is time for a new set of Bravo housewives to share their drama lives with us. The Real Housewives of New York City is set to premier it’s highly anticipated third season March 4th on Bravo.
So what can be expect this third season? Well for one, Bethenny discovers she’s pregnant and gets engaged, LuAnn goes through her divorce and tries her hand at singing, Ramona renews her wedding vows, Alex gets catty and fiesty, and the ladies actually start to like Kelly. However, the main focus this season will be Jill vs Bethenny, as it has been widely reported the former BFFs are no longer friends.
The top 24 competition has yet to officially began and there has already been a major shake up on American Idol.
Curly-haired contestant Chris Golightly was removed from the competition this week and replaced by Tim Urban in the Top 24. Chris is the 19-year-old Texas native who spoke in the audition rounds of living in 24 different foster homes as a child.“It has been determined that Chris Golightly is ineligible to continue in the competition,” says FOX in a press release.
The show’s host Ryan Seacrest echoed the same statement on his Twitter page, where he also announced that for the first time in the show’s history, the contestants will have MySpace, Twitter and Facebook pages on the Idol hub. Ryan did not elaborate on why Golightly was booted.
However, Joes Place Blog was able to score an interview with Chris and revealed the exact reason he got booted. According to Chris, he had an old contract with a Boy Band that expired in June 2009. Chris tried out for AI in July 2009 and when asked if he was entered into any contracts, he answered no.
After making it into the top 24 in January 2010. Chris’s former manager then called Chris and American Idol and told them that he still had a valid contract. Chris denied this but couldn’t find his copy of the release. American Idol unfortunately decided to cut Chris when he couldn’t prove he wasn’t under contract. Chris’s old manager ended up finding the contract release and emailed it to American Idol, but according to Chris, the people at AI are not taking his calls.
Even worse, Chris was told by American Idol he can no longer audition for the show again because he made the top 46.
Also, no word yet on whether or not Michael “Big Mike” Lynche was dismissed from the competition. It was reported back in January that he got the axe after his father revealed to a Florida newspaper that he made the Top 24, breaking the confidentiality rule of the show. As of today, his profile is still intact on Idol’s website.
What is to come tonight? Well we get to see the continuation of the fight or argument brewing between new housewife Alexis Bellinoand original housewife Vicki Gunvalson. Part of their exchange is below:
Vicki: “Is this gang (up) on Vicki day? Leave me alone.”
Alexis: “I’m just trying to help you.”
Vicki: “You don’t need to help me. I’m good. You don’t need to help me. You don’t even know me.”
Alexis: “Hmm. But yet, one, two, three, four-all girls out of the five say …”
Vicki: “Don’t count Lynne in. Don’t count my friend Tamra in, whom you just met. OK? Let’s get that straight right now. She’s my friend. You just met her. Don’t you dare put her against me.”
Alexa: “Don’t you dare say she’s not my friend. She’s my friend. She’s friends, OK?”
Tamra: “I’m friends with everybody. Friends with everybody. I don’t want to fight with anybody.”
Vicki: “I’m out.” Proceeding to leave the table and restaurant.
As you can see from the Bravo preview clip below, Alexis doesn’t back down to Vicki, ultimately leading to all the ladies going outside. Tamra’s attempt to become the peacemaker doesn’t seem to help much.
Must say I’m actually Team Alexis on this one. Vicki loves to dish it out, but turns herself into a victim the minute somebody dishes it back to her. Yes, Vicki has been a lot more likable and tolerable this season, but every now and then, that old Vicky rears its ugly head. She was rude to Alexis at Lynne’s dinner party, and Alexis has a right to call her out on it.

RealitySteve is the same blogger who correctly revealed the correct finalists of the show early on during the season. According to the blogger, Ali has agreed to do the show and will start filming her Bachelorette season next month around mid-March. ABC is set to publicly announce the new Bachelorette within with next week or so.
In the meantime, Ali made an appearance on The Ellen Show this week and pretended to be unaware of her new role. When asked about rumors she will be the next Bachelorette, Ali played coy: “That would be so nice,” she said. “I would be so flattered.” And although her employer[Facebook] forced her to choose between Bachelor and her job, Ali says “If [ABC] were to ask me, that would be so great.”
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison also hints at this when he told TVGuide.com in a new interview that Ali would make an excellent Bachelorette. “I think she would be a fantastic Bachelorette. I like women that have loved and lost, have learned a lesson, and you have Ali, obviously beautiful, a very down-to-earth, career-driven woman who learned a great lesson about love,” said Chris.
And there you have it, Ali will indeed be named the next Bachelorette.
TELL US – ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THIS CHOICE? DO YOU WANT SOMEONE NEW AS THE BACHELORETTE?
“I am doing Playboy again… soon, very soon,” the plastic surgery-obsessed “Hills” star told RadarOnline. “I cannot wait to show off my new assets, I am very excited.”
Heidi also reveals she might be showing much more skin this time around. And what does her husband, Spencer Pratt, think of her new look? “It is who you are on the inside that really matters, this is just the shell at the end of the day,” said Heidi.
In other news, UsWeekly is now reporting that other Hills star Kristin Cavallari might have a serious drug problem. Above is a photo of Kristin taken just last month at a movie premier.
According to US magazine, the 23 year old hard partying reality star especially raised highbrows during Super Bowl weekend in Miami: “She was wasted the entire time,” a source says. “She was going around to everyone, asking them to score her some coke.”
Those close to Kristin say her drug use is becoming more and more obvious. “Her issues are becoming apparent to everyone,” an insider reveals. “She’s getting scary-thin and not showering regularly…She’s clearly unhealthy.”
Things have gotten to the point that her fellow Hills friends Brody Jenner, Audrina Patridge, Lo Bosworth and Stephanie Pratt have all urged her to check into rehab, to no avail. “She doesn’t think she has a problem,”says a source.
Another insider reveals Kristin’s drug problems might even become a storyline on The Hills. “Her drug problem finally became an unavoidable conversation topic on film. If MTV uses the footage, it will be clear to everyone.”
