Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino is breaking her silence on the recent report stating her twin daughters almost drowned during the 4th of July weekend.

TMZ broke the story on Tuesday that Alexis and husband Jim Bellino left their stroller unattended while they were off “doing something” and it ended up rolling into a pool. According to TMZ, one lifeguard pulled the stroller out of the water with one child still in it, while Jim dove in to save the other child.

Alexis however gives a different version of events on her website. She states she and Jim turned their backs for a quick minute to say goodbye to some people, and the stroller ended up in the pool because she forgot to put on the brakes. Alexis also claims Jim was the one who saved both girls.

Below is what Alexis had to say -

“On Sunday, July 4th, my family was leaving the Balboa Bay Club swimming pool in the late afternoon. As we were leaving, I turned to say goodbye. Our girls were in their stroller and I thought I had put the brake on, but apparently I didn’t. My husband, Jim, and I were both standing close to the stroller. Within seconds, the stroller had rolled towards the pool and a stroller wheel rolled off the edge of the pool. Before either of us could grab the stroller, a second wheel rolled off the edge, and the stroller went into the pool. Of course, Jim instantly went into the pool. He grabbed both of the girls himself and lifted both of them out of the water. Because the girls were not strapped into the stroller, and Jim was right there, their heads did not even go under water.

While we are not making light of this incident, and have been reminded to never take our eyes off the children for even a second when near water, it has been so hurtful to know how this experience has been mischaracterized in the media. To all of you who have offered your support, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino nearly lost two of her children on the 4th of July according to TMZ.

The accident occured at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, CA when Alexis left her stroller unattended … and it rolled into a pool.

Sources tell TMZ that sometime during the holiday celebration, Alexis and her husband Jim Bellino were off “doing something” … and the stroller — carrying 2 toddlers — toppled into the pool.

One lifeguard pulled the stroller out of the water with one child still in it, while Jim dove in to save the other child. Jim however tells TMZ a slightly different story — claiming, “There was no lifeguard needed or involved.”

According to TMZ, both of the Bellino children are fine and didn’t need medical attention.

Ironically enough, Alexis posted a photo of herself on facebook in a matching bikini with one of her daughters on July 4th, and wrote: “It’s all about family on the Fourth of July!!!!!!!!!”. That photo is below.

Alexis told the crowd, “I think we all know that I am the one in charge!” The couple also hit up LAVO for more celebrating.

It seems Gretchen Rossi, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County is sticking by her man’s side no matter what.

The latest in the never ending drama of Slade Smiley’s child support case is a new report detailing what took place during Slade’s hearing on Friday. RadarOnline reports that Slade, 41, owes between $84,962 and $110,000 in back child support to Michelle Arroyo, mother of his son Grayson Arroyo-Smiley, 10, who suffers from a rare form of brain cancer.

The drama ensued when Gretchen’s ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou, who is not a stalker by any means, decided to show up to the court hearing for some strange reason.  Is it safe to assume Jay has no job and has lots of free time to show up to court cases that have absolutely nothing to do with him? This made Slade furious and authorities had to step in to keep the parties separate.

Slade is then said to have asked the judge to have Jay removed the courtroom, which led to all parties not directly involved in the case being asked to leave court, including Gretchen.

And according to the OC Register, Slade who is said to be a former insurance salesman and male model, admitted in court he had received some payments for this appearance on the OC Housewives.  This is despite Slade’s previous claims that he had zero income and zero expenses.  Slade also admitted he had the funds paid to Gretchen and then re-directed to him to avoid mandatory deductions.

Slade has asked the Judge to reduce his child support payments, and is due back in Court in September.

Tamra Barney OCRyan Vieth

Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney’s son has been arrested once again.

According to TMZ, Ryan Vieth was arrested on Wednesday night after cops pulled him over for a minor traffic stop and then learned there was an active warrant out for his arrest.

This all stems from a recent missed court appearance in connection with a prior traffic problem. Ryan is currently being held on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to face the judge later today.

So TMZ reported Ryan’s arrest this morning, however Tamra already gave an exclusive interview about her son’s arrest to RadarOnline last night.

Tamra reveals to Radar that she received a phone call from Ryan alerting her that he had been arrested, but claims she is done enabling him. “I haven’t spoken to Ryan since his arrest, I am livid. I’m done enabling him.”I’ve cried my last tear for him, I don’t have anymore,” said Tamra.

Ryan, 24, is currently unemployed and living with Tamra’s mother. Tamra continued, “I love Ryan, but he needs to grow up. I’ve enabled him way too much throughout his life and it’s over.”He’s an adult now and needs to start providing for himself. “When he gets of jail there is going to be an intervention with him. “He goes to court tomorrow, Friday, I won’t be there. “I love him but enough is enough, he needs to grow up.”

Ryan’s mugshot is below -

So what’s a gal to do when she is forced to fork over a check of 22k to her alleged stalker ex? Well if you’re Gretchen Rossi of the Real Housewives of Orange County, you pick yourself up and get right back to what you do best — hosting parties and doing paid appearances.

Gretchen, 32, hosted some parties in Las Vegas this weekend. First she appeared at the JET mirage nightclub on Friday, and then donned a bikini the next day before hitting up the Bare Pool Lounge where she is said to have relaxed with her friends and family. More photos of Gretchen below.

In other news, Bravo has announced it is now casting for the sixth season of the OC Housewives. According to their casting call, they are looking for “outgoing, exciting, strong, focused women who reside in Orange County and want to share their lives with us.”

This seems to be a negotiating ploy done by Bravo every year whenever it comes time to negotiate with the current housewives, as they never really pick their new housewives from the casting calls. Case in point, last season’s new housewife Alexis Bellino, was not picked from a casting call. She was recommended to the producers by Gretchen.

With that being said, more on the casting call is below. Audition at your own risk:

“We are looking for women who are “Housewives” in the present-day sense. They should be lively and energetic, with defined opinions and views. The women need to have busy lives, be involved with the community, have a strong work ethic, and an active social calendar. Most of all, these women need to be enjoying “the good life.” We love women who are self-confident and happy with whom they are. The women, their significant others and families must be open to sharing their experiences with the producers and the television audience.”

Despite numerous attempts to stall and delay, Gretchen Rossi ran out of options last week and had to fork over a check to her sleazebag ex Jay Photoglou.

According to RadarOnline, the Real Housewives of Orange County star finally handed over a check in the amount of $22,375.05 to Jay, after she lost a judgment to him and then skipped a court date for a debtor’s examination.

No word yet on whether or not Jay will actually see any of that money as Gretchen and her attorney alleged Jay owed the IRS over $30,000, which might explain why he has spent the last year and a half trying to capitalize on his past relationship with Gretchen.

Despite the fact that Gretchen made her payment, the drama didn’t end there, as Jay’s attorney Orlando Castano posted the following message on this twitter account:

So today I made Gretchen Rossi fork over $22,375.05 to my client. She had 2 law firms & 12 attys filing motions and still got beat Twice I’ve kicked their arses.”

Gretchen’s boyfriend Slade Smiley saw this and of course decided to reply, posting the following:

“Your funny man. Do you really believe your own BS? You arent getting paid, Jay isnt getting paid. We chose to pay the state.”

Shall we post the documents from ur brief where u tried 2 mislead the judge. Our docs where valid not urs. We decided the day.”

The new article by RadarOnline, however clearly shows a picture of Gretchen’s check, paid out to Jay’s attorney. I’m guessing once Jay’s attorney gets his share, the  small remainder of the money will go to the state, that is if the story about Jay owing the IRS over $30,000 is true.

Still pending is Gretchen’s new defamation lawsuit against Jay.
