Perhaps there’s good reason for that, as Alexis new facebook photos have a lot of viewers speculating on whether the OC Housewife has had more work done. Alexis has always been forthcoming about having gone under the knife in the past, admitting to a boob job and regular botox.
The first photo on the left is Alexis’s current profile photo on her facebook page, while the photo on the right is what she looked like before, and even her fans are commenting on the very noticeable change in her new look. And at first one might thing it was just some overzealous airbrushing, but a look at other new photos posted by Alexis shows a different looking Alexis as well. More of those photos are posted below.
Interestingly, Alexis announced earlier this year that she is now doing consulting work for a plastic surgeon at www.cosmeticare.com. This is very reminiscence of the whole Heidi Montag story, not sure why Alexis felt the need to get more work done, if she actually did, because she looked just fine before in my opinion.

Move over Bravo Housewives! There are some new wives on the block! Pictured above from left to right are Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, Erikka Moxam, Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Suzie Ketchem and Gloria Govan, the cast of VH1′s Basketball Wives.
The show will follow the extraordinary lives of seven women who are best friends and either the wife, ex-wife or girlfriend of an NBA superstar. There has also been some major cast changes since the show was first announced last year.
The series will showcase the lives of these women as they drive the best cars, live in the biggest mansions, wear designer clothes and jewelry and only travel first class. However, viewers will quickly see that all that glitters is not gold. In order to protect it, they have to deal with the jealousies and dramas of living in — and staying in — the inner circle.
The most recognizable of the women will have to be Shaunie O’Neal, soon to be ex-wife of Shaquille O’Neal. Basketball Wives premieres on VH1 Sunday, April 11 at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
From what we’ve seen and heard, the show will NOT dissapoint. We also have brief bios and photos of each of the ladies, as well as some secrets and scandals involving the ladies. More of that below -
Royce Reed – The 29 year-old is college educated, and a former Orlando Magic dancer. Royce is described as a firecracker, a strong-minded, driven woman who is no stranger to confrontation. She is also the ex-girlfriend of NBA star Dwight Howard. The two have a son together. Royce is pictured on the right with son Braylon Howard, born on November 18, 2007. Dwight however waited until 2008 to publicly acknowledge his son.
There has also been some major drama between Royce and her ex. After some reports hit the web that Dwight was a bully and a less than stellar father, Dwight took his son’s mother to court accusing her of cyber bashing him, and suing her for $9,205,000 in damages. The douchebag didn’t stop there. He also took Royce to court back in December 2009, requesting that she not be allowed to speak his name on the reality show. Royce has agreed to this according to reports.
Some have accused Royce of being a groupie, she has however denied this saying she dated Dwight for a while before bearing his son. Royce also made some headlines some months ago when she decided to enter a raunchy “dance” contest while in Maimi. The video of that is below.
Evelyn Lozada – The 34 year-old is the ex-fiance of former NBA star Antoine Walker. And yes Antoine is the NBA Player that made headlines last year for being broke after having earned more than $110 million playing professional basketball for 12 years. Not only is Antoine broke, he also owes more than $4 million to his creditors and is facing felony check fraud charges in LasVegas all at the tender age of 33.
Evelyn reportedly bounced once Antoine’s money dried up. But don’t paint her as a villain just yet, as a source tells us Antoine treated her very poorly during their 10 years of courtship. Antoine was reportedly never faithful to her. Evelyn is also said to have a 17 year old daughter. A photo of Evelyn with her daughter is below.

Shaunie O’Neal – Is the soon to be ex-wife of NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. A lot to report here. The couple married December 26, 2002 and have a total of four children together. Shaunie however had a son from her first marriage and Shaq had a daughter from a previous relationship giving them a total of 6 kids.
Shaq first filed for divorce back on September 4, 2007, citing that his wife was having an affair with her personal trainer. Shaunie denied this claim and they eventually reconciled. This accusation was all the more interesting considering Shaq is VERY WELL KNOWN for his cheating and having multiple girlfriends while married. One of his mistresses, Alexis Miller, got a restraining order against him back in 2008. Another mistress Vanessa Lopez, filed a lawsuit against him in January 2010, accusing him of harassing her.
The biggest shocker however came in November 2009 when it was revealed Shaq was having an affair with Laura Govan, the fiance of fellow NBA player Gilbert Arenas. Interestingly enough, Laura’s sister, Gloria Govan, is a cast member on this show. 5 days after this made headlines, Shaunie filed for separation. It was also reported that Laura was a friend of Shaunie’s.
But before you go feeling sorry for Shaunie, she might not be that innocent. The big rumor is Shaunie was still married to her ex husband Daven Baptiste, when she began an affair with Shaq. Daven was Shaq’s accountant at the time, before allegedly finding out his wife was not only sleeping with his boss, but had also gotten pregnant by Shaq. This allegedly led to the couple’s divorce. Daven has however never spoken publicly about his marriage with Shaunie.
Gloria Govan – Is only 24 years old and is the fiance of NBA star Matt Barnes who plays for Orlando Magic. Gloria and Matt have twin boys.
Above is Gloria’s sister Laura Govan, with fiancée Gilbert Arenas who plays for the Washington Wizards. Laura, who has been on/off with Gilbert since 2001, and had 3 kids with him, was allegedly sleeping with Shaq for the past 5 years. Shaquille’s wife Shaunie O’Neal, is also on the show. TheYBF website was able to get their hands on some email exchanges between Shaq and Laura last year in November. Days after the story leaked, Shaunie filed for divorce. And oh yeah, Shaunie and Laura were also friends. TheYBF site has since deleted the story and emails from their site. A screen shot of the email exchanges between Shaq and Laura is however below -

Other than her sister’s alleged affair, there’s not much dirt on Gloria though there are rumblings she and her sister are gold-diggers due to their relationships with NBA players. There are also rumors there is trouble in paradise for Gloria and her fiance Matt. There are rumblings Matt has been very unfaithful on many occasions, and the couple will likely not make it down the aisle.
Jennifer Williams – Is the wife of former NBA Player Eric Williams who has played for the Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, Toronto Raptors and Charlotte Bobcats. Not much on Jennifer, other than a rumor that her marriage is on the rocks.
Suzie Ketchem – Suzie is said to be the social butterfly of the group. She dated NBA player Michael Olowokandi for 10 years and the two have two children together. There are however rumblings that she’s a groupie and tries very hard to befriend celebrities.
Erikka Moxam – Is a personal shopper from Miami. Not much is known about who she dated or is dating to get on the show.

Star magazine got the exclusive photos that show Vicki,47, kissing a 25-year-old college student on the lips while partying in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, just last month. That photo, scanned from the new issue of Star magazine, is posted below.
“Vicki was extremely outgoing and having a great time, like a sorority girl,” said University of Manitoba student Mike Pullin to Star about his wild night with the mother of two. “We clicked immediately and danced to rock ‘n’ roll by Bon Jovi and Journey. She was living it up. She kept talking to me. She was a big flirt.”
According to Mike, he bought a round of tequila shots for their group which led to Vicki giving him a very special thank you — a big kiss on the lips. The two continued to drink through the night, and were eventually full-on making out.
Mike also reveals he recognized Vicki from the Bravo hit show and even asked her about her husband Donn Gunvalson, “He’s not out tonight,” replied Vicki. “She was very vague about it, like she didn’t want to answer me. I didn’t want to push for an answer… I just wanted to enjoy myself,” said Mike.
Mike also shares that Vicki is a “very good kisser.” Sure Donn would be very happy to hear that. Mike says he gave Vicki his phone number and email, but she never contacted him after that night.
This isn’t the first time that Vicki has been caught in some questionable behavior. Back in June 2009, she was also photographed dancing on some guy’s lap, and photos of her getting a tattoo on her butt while bent over and revealing her thong in a bar were also published by RadarOnline last year.
This is somewhat not surprising considering Vicki’s continuous questionable behavior with other men, both on and off the show. There was an episode from last season during which Vicki kept trying to kiss a friend’s husband on the lips. I’ve always wondered if Vicki and Donn had an “open” marriage or an understanding. If not, then must say I feel sorry for Donn.
A new episode of the OC Housewives airs tonight. You can read more about this story in the newest issue of Star Magazine.

It now seems the Real Housewives of Orange County star is ready to go public with her new relationship. According to RadarOnline, Tamra herself posted the above photo of she and Eddie on her facebook page. This is all just less than 2 months after her husband Simon Barney filed for divorce, accusing her of cheating on him. Tamra has always denied she cheated.
Simon also claimed he found out about the romance by catching the two of them together at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. He said, “I couldn’t believe what I had just witnessed — the ultimate betrayal by a pal and my estranged wife.”
“We started hanging out together more after my separation and one thing led to another. We had been friends for over a year,” said Tamra when she confirmed the new relationship to Radar.
She continued, “We are romantically involved, he is a great guy. It was bound to happen that we both would start dating again after he filed for divorce, it was going to happen sooner or later.”
The finale of the 2nd season of For The Love of Ray J aired last night with 33 year old Mz Berry aka Connie Deveaux beating out Platinum to win the heart of Ray J, or did she?
The question on everyone’s minds is are they still together? The answer to that seems to be NO, coming from Mz Berry’s new interview with VH1. According to her, she and Ray J have barely made any contact since the show finished filming months ago. The winner of the show and the person looking for love are usually discouraged from contacting each other, as not to give away the show’s results, however in the past shows, it has been very common for the two to stay in touch and see each other if they really wanted to.
In other words, Ray J could have made an effort to see and contact the winner of his show if he was genuinely interested. Plus the following photos of Ray J were snapped of him and an unknown lady back in October 2009. Ray J can be seen hugged up and kissing the lady, who has been described to us by sources as being his 20 year old girlfriend. According to the source, Ray and this girl have been together for a while, and were together the entire time he was filming the 2nd season of his show.
As we also previously reported, Ray J broke up with season 1 winner, Cocktail, just so he could do a second season. By the way, he finished filming his second season in early October. These photos were taken around October 26th. You can put two and two together. The photos courtesy of TheYbf.com are below -
The two lovebirds were snapped leaving Hawaii after a vacation. These photos were taken just a week before his show was set to premier last year. The good news is we do get a Reunion show, so it will be interesting to see what Ray has to say about his “relationship” with Mz Berry.
Excerpts from Mz Berry’s interview is below -
How has communication with Ray been since the show wrapped?
Really, Ray and I aren’t allowed to speak to each other. We aren’t allowed to meet or anything like that.
Do you have a good feeling about where things are going?
We just have to see. You can’t really base on everything that happened with us three, four months ago. I wouldn’t say feelings change, but you just have to see. In any type of relationship, you just take it one step at a time. We’ll definitely both talk about what we want, and we’ll see where it goes from there.
Are you excited to see him at the reunion?
Yes, very excited. I’m a little nervous, but very excited.
Even more shocking? Simon is accusing his wife of infidelity. This is quite ironic as tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of OC deals with the couple’s marital troubles.
In the divorce papers Simon wrote: “Petitioner contends that Respondent has been verbally abusive and has committed acts of disloyalty and infidelity.” According to a source close to the couple, Tamra reportedly moved out of their million dollar home earlier this week and into a two-bedroom apartment.
Simon and Tamra have been married for 11 years. They have three children together in addition to Tamra’s son from a previous marriage. “Simon has simply had enough,” the source said. “The show changed her.” The source adds that though they had been having marital problems for the past couple of years, Tamra did not know that Simon was filing divorce papers, even after she moved out of their home.
It is interesting to see Simon accuse his wife of being unfaithful as viewers know Tamra has been very vocal and critical of fellow cast member Gretchen Rossi, claiming Gretchen cheated on former fiancé Jeff Beitzel.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS? ARE YOU SURPRISED?
UPDATE: A rep for Bravo tells UsMagazine that Tamra has “no comment” at this time . She will however be opening up next week on Bravo. “She is going to share her story first on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Show hosted by Andy Cohen, airing next Thursday at midnight.”
We recently wrote about the downside of appearing on a reality show such as the Real Housewives of Orange County. The first downside being that your ‘perfect’ marriage that you pride yourself on will come off as being not so perfect in front of millions of viewers, while your husband’s cutesy behavior might come off as being somewhat controlling.
The second downside it seems is skeletons from your closet being unveiled. New housewife on the block, Alexis Bellino, is now experiencing this as her first husband, Jeff Barry, is spilling all sorts of sordid details about the couple’s first marriage and nasty divorce to Star magazine. And oh yeah, there are pictures too.
In the latest issue of Star magazine, it is revealed that Alexis and Jeff got married back in 2002 after 3 years of dating. The Missouri college sweethearts would later go on to divorce in 2003 after just 15 months of marriage. Reasons for their divorce includes infidelity, boozy brawls, computer hacking, physical threats and missing money. “We had been college sweethearts in Missouri,” Jeff, 31, a sales engineer, tells Star. “I never dreamt back then that things between us could turn so ugly.”
More details about Alexis’s first marriage below -
The couple moved to San Diego shortly after their 2002 wedding. “We were young and didn’t have a lot of money.” says Jeff. “Then Alexis…started hanging out with trust fund babies. Having the right pair of expensive jeans became important to her.”
Eventually, Jeff discovered his wife was having an affair with a wealthy father of three she met at the gym.
“I gave Alexis endless opportunities to fess up, but she kept denying everything,” says Jeff. “Then she said she needed her space, moved into her own place and asked me to go to therapy with her. But she only went twice, she made no effort at all.”
Jeff pretended to be a friend of Alexis’s and started emailing her under false pretenses. His suspicions were confirmed that Alexis was indeed sleeping with the married wealthy man.
Jeff then sent a mass email out to couple’s friends and family, in which he referred to Alexis as a “gold-digging homewrecker,” and a “$2 whore.“
In the divorce filing, Jeff said of Alexis, “She can be an extremely mean, irrational drunk… She once took off her top in front of my best man to make me mad because she was upset that I smoked a cigarette.”
The couple’s divorce was finalized in June 2004. According to Jeff, he hasn’t had any contact with Alexis in four years.
“I’m not surprised she ended up on a show like Real Housewives,” says Jeff, who is now remarried. “She just seems to have even bigger boobs, a nose job and blonder hair now.”
According to Star magazine, Alexis declined to comment on this article.
The question on a lot of people’s minds is whether or not the couples are still together. Well the finale was shot in June, and according to Hot Wings aka Kamille Leai, she and Chance are no longer an item. Doll confirms she and Real are no longer together as well.
Hot Wings posted the following messages on her Twitter, revealing that Chance never got in touch with her once the show finished filming. She reveals the same went for Doll. She says she did not find love on the show, and even jokes about a 3rd season. Her tweets are below –
first off, let me just say that i heard from chance ONE TIME since we shot the show back in June, and it was thru twitter….7 minutes agofrom web
neone surprised!!! lmao..so NO i really didnt “WIN” the show. i did NOT find love with chance, HELL i cant even find chance PERIOD!!!7 minutes agofrom web
much love and respect to chance but i never heard from him after the show, and neither did doll from real..so what are we suppose to do?!?!6 minutes agofrom web
it was a great experience, chance is still a great guy,at least he got what he wanted, and that was a show..cant wait for season 3..hehe3 minutes agofrom web
Doll has also confirmed she and Real are no longer together in a new interview with VH1.
So it’s officially not going to happen with Real?
Yeah, it’s officially not there. We don’t have a relationship established of that sort. I’m a beautiful, well-rounded girl. I’m looking for love and I’m sure any guy would love to be with me, so I’m not worried about the situation.
When did it become clear to you that things weren’t working out?
It became clear about a month after the show was over. I mean, are you kidding me? For a guy not to contact me for a whole month after we supposedly became close? You picked me out of the 10 or 15 other girls that were on the show for you. And I wasn’t pursued a month after that?
It’s quite funny because these two douches spent their entire time on the show whining about wanting to find love, and accusing all the women of being on the show for the wrong reasons, when in actuality, they had zero intentions of committing to any of the ladies. It’s safe to say we will be hearing an announcement about a 3rd season any day now.
