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.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta will return for a third season but some of the housewives may not be returning. According to a NYDailyNews report, NeNe LeakesandKim Zolciak have become more demanding, requesting more money from Bravo to appear on the show. Bravo on the other hand isn’t willingly to succumb to their demands and may have plans to have the two “divas” replaced.
“Bravo has been taking meetings with some notable and wealthy Atlanta women about possibly joining the show,” says the insider. “They’re trying their best to keep the process under wraps, but they’re gearing up to make a major move in the third season.”
TMZ is also reporting that part of Nene and Kim’s demands includes having Bravo pay their electric bill, demanding an upgrade in flying from coach to first class, and they also want stipends for wardrobe, hair and make-up.
According to the source, Bravo wants the other housewives – Kandi Burruss, Sheree WhitfieldandLisa Wu to return as long as they like. “Kandi was a fan favorite last season. Her audience approval ratings were through the roof,” the insider explains. “And Sheree’s clothing line [She by Sheree] and her catch phrase, ‘Who gonna check me, boo?’ were definite standouts.”
“Things with NeNe and Kim have been intense,” says the source, “but Bravo feels the show is about the franchise as a whole and won’t let one person stop it.”
No one seems to be commenting including Bravo and reps for NeNe and Kim. I’m guessing Bravo leaked out this story as a ploy to tell Kim & Nene to get on board or else. The same thing happened right before the Real Housewives of NYC started filming, Jill Zarin allegedly wanted more money, and Bravo wasted no time casting for new housewives, threatening to replace Jill.
