Alexis showed off her patriotic side in a flag-inspired bikini while she hung out in a luxury cabana with friends.
We were going to save these to share on Wednesday (4th of July), but we just couldn’t hold off that long. We should’ve used these for a new “you caption it!” post instead because there are just so many things to be said about these photos! If you’re so inclined…go ahead, give us your best shot.

Jim Bellino is nobody’s fool. Wait… what did I just write?! Anyway, he wears the big boy pants – and he wants Bravo to know it! The most detested of the Real Housewives of Orange County husbands is setting the record straight on Tuesday’s season finale party – and apparently not only did Terry Dubrow invite him to the party; Jim has the texts to prove it. Danggit Jim, don’t you go making me like you now!
In addition to Jim calling Terry out, Alexis Bellino is taking Queen Chesire CatHeather Dubrow and her fellow Housewives to task for pretending thatSarah Winchester, cake destroyer extraordinaire, was an uninvited guest. Like, duh, Sarah was, like, so for real invited by Bravo. I bet they even told her to wear that $3 Pretty Woman reject hooker dress!
Deep in the middle of Real Housewives of Orange County, it was a beautiful clear night overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It could have been the setting from a movie, but instead it was real-ish life. And from Heather Dubrow‘s palatial lawn stars dotted the sky of what should have been a perfect evening. Sadly, an evil eye had befallen the enchanted party and instead of an evening of friendship, love and celebration – it was one recriminations, accusations, and petty slights.
‘Perhaps the drinks flowed too abundantly?’ Heather thought to herself. ‘Perhaps I was too liberal with the invitations?’ she pondered. But then she remembered, she had sold her soul; let it all slip away and now Bravo owned her – they owned her home, her celebrations, and even her name. Well, at least for next couple years. Oh, well might as well make the best of it. Champs for all!
Last week there were issues over a bow. Some loose ends were left untied and Sarah Winterchester, the faux-heiress (who left her holler for the wilds of Orange County), was being shown the door at this exclusive party. Sarah began to realize the Xanax in her purse was a bad idea (OK, I made that part up). Also a bad idea – letting herself be talked into attending a party where she was out of her element, nervous as hell, and wearing the dress she bought at the adult superstore on Sunset. All in all, mistakes were made and she would suffer for them. One can escape the trailer park, but never really escape the trailer park. Just ask Tamra!
With the Real Housewives of Orange County drawing to a close, there has been a lot of speculation about what is in the works for Alexis Bellino. Not always portrayed as the sharpest tool in the shed, Alexis has lost good friends and gained unusual allies this season.
Alexis was recently interviewed by WetPaint.com about how she was portrayed and whether she’s mended any of her relationships with her cast mates. Highlights from that interview follow.
This weekend Alexis Bellino threw a surprise 50th birthday extravaganza for husband Jim Bellino. Jim, who has officially declared that he will never, ever not for one minute ever again appear on an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, was surprised with a private jet to Napa where he celebrated with several friends. Can they afford this? Isn’t that a little “materialistic?”
“Happy Birthday to the love of my life, my hot hubby Jim Bellino. You don’t look a day over 38! Muah!,” Alexis gushed on Twitter.

Oh, the repercussions of Costa Mexico! Just once I’d love to write something happy or positive about one of Bravo’s housewives franchises, but alas, I may have to wait until 2013. Here’s hoping! Oh well, onto the Real Housewives of Orange County! Before we begin, let me start with a disclaimer I seem to tout with all of these housewives posts. These women are all pretty much ridiculous. (Not you, Heather Dubrow. Want to plan a wardrobe swap soon? I’ve got some great Target pieces I think you’d really love to wear! Call me. #eventrade)
With all the fallout from the recent intervention (you know, the one that let Alexis Bellino know she’s shallow and pretentious…so nothing like her co-stars), it was rumored that the reunion may be missing a cast member. Thankfully, Alexis didn’t pull a Jacqueline Laurita, and she was there to face Andy Cohen’s music with the rest of her O.C. cohorts.
Uh oh. Could everyone’s favorite Real Housewives of Orange County couple be heading for Splitsville (population Slade Smiley)? I know you will all be as devastated as I am if this is true. A source close to Gretchen Rossi (of course) recently spilled some dirt on the couple’s relationship to RadarOnline.com, and said source doesn’t appear to be a fan of Sladey Wadey.
“Gretchen is growing tired of taking care of Slade and paying for everything in his life and she’s just about had it,” the insider tells the site.
“She is supporting him and helping to pay his legal bills and it’s getting to be too much for her,” the source reveals. “Gretchen is seriously considering ending the relationship because she’s sick of doing everything for Slade.”
It honestly may be Christmas in June. Thank you Real Housewives of Orange County! A little nugget known as Jim Bellino’schin blog has officially made my day. In excerpts from a post written at the beginning of May, he interviews himself. It’s brilliant. Technically, he’s not the one who generated the questions, but he’s certainly answering them in pure Jimbo fashion.
