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.


Also, surprising? Vicki Gunvalson and leech boyfriend Brooks Ayers were included in the festivities. Perhaps Wines by Wives was sponsoring it or something? The weekend featured a wine tasting, a party, and I’m sure a lot of Alexis and Vicki talking about themselves. “Thank you for an amazing wine tasting experience. I cant wait to come back,” Vicki tweeted her new bestie

The weekend was not without incident as poor Alexis apparently needed some emergency plastic surgery. This one really was needed – not like that sinus thingy nose job.  “A little party foul… just couldn’t let Jim have all the attention, so I decided to sit on a wineglass. 11 stitches later and I’m ready to rally! Thank God Dr. Niccole was on this trip with us! Hehe!,” Alexis tweeted. Hopefully Alexis’ precious new nose survived unscathed!

Alexis tweeted and facebooked a ton of photos from the event which are all below for you to enjoy!

And speaking of vacations, tonight is an all new episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Although Tamra just returned (in reality TV time) from Costa Mexico, she is headed to Bora Bora with boyfriend Eddie where a little surprise is planned. Yep, it’s that proposal that caused a war between her and Gretchen that supposedly wasn’t filed by Bravo!

In less happy relationship news, Gretchen finds out about Slade’s plans to do a surprise proposal and freaks out. She also suggest he get a J-O-B! And Vicki pays for Brooks to get some much needed dental TLC. A preview of the new episode is below!

Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight at 9/10c on Bravo. Reality Tea will be live-Tweeting the episode, so don’t forget to join us and tell us what you think of the action!
