Alexis Bellino appeared on Seasons 5 through 8 on Real Housewives of Orange County. In June of 2018, Alexis’
controlling and condescending husband, Jim Bellino, filed for divorce. The pair somehow managed to reach a zero drama custody agreement. Now that is shocking!
But Tamra, who exited the franchise last season, managed to land in really hot water with Jim. Alexis and Jim owned several indoor trampoline parks. Tamra and Shannon Beador were interviewed on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast.
Tamra supposedly stated, “Everything’s in her name. He’s going to go to jail. Yeah, he’s a shady motherf**ker.” Then, Shannon decided to comment on the Bellino’s Sky Zone trampoline park. “I heard they don’t [own the trampoline park businesses] because they were sued. I won’t let my kids go because people get paralyzed,” Shannon said. “Apparently that happened.”
After Jim threatened legal action, the podcast removed some of these comments. Jim filed a $1 million dollar lawsuit against Shannon and Tamra for defamation. Shannon won her suit against Jim, and he was forced to pay her legal fees. Meanwhile, Tamra is scheduled to go to court with Jim in November of 2021.
In 2019, Tamra stated that she no longer harbors any ill will towards Alexis. Let’s just say the feeling isn’t mutual. In an interview with US Weekly, Alexis shared the one moment that she regrets from RHOC.
“The [time at Tamra Judge’s gym] where I admitted that I had popped a Xanax the night before,” Alexis explained. ” I took a quarter [because] I was having anxiety attacks in the middle of the night and the doctor told me, ‘You need to just try to get one night’s sleep and just see if it’ll calm [you] down.’” She continued, “And then I didn’t like the way it made me feel. So, I didn’t take it again, but you know, that doesn’t need to be aired that I popped that.”
The dinner at Tamra’s gym during Season 8 was definitely memorable, and not in a good way, for Alexis. The former RHOC star told US Weekly, “We were doing that dinner in [Tamra’s] gym and producers had begged me to go. I said, ‘I’m not going, I’m not going because she’s going. She’s going to throw me out or light me up. And I’m not in the position [where] I want to be in a fight,’” Alexis shared.
“And they said, ‘Well, what if we promise you that she can’t throw you out?’ And I said, ‘OK.’ And, sure enough, she throws me out.” Alexis said. “And the way she got in my face, I literally thought it was going to be the first fistfight of my life.” I can’t imagine Alexis in a fistfight with anyone. “If she hit me, the bitch was going down. I was not going to sit back and just take it. I’m like, ‘If she strikes first, she’s getting an assault charge, not me,’” Alexis stated.
