Alexis Bellino and John Janssen Officially Dating After Shannon Beador Split

Alexis Bellino is coming in hot and bringing Shannon Beador’s ex-boyfriend along for the ride. But the big question is, will she be carrying an orange? Woe is Shannon because her world has flipped upside down and she wasn’t even in her car this time.

After rumors, photos, and media blurbs, it’s finally revealed what we already knew. Alexis and John Janssen are officially dating and Shannon is officially losing her marbles. People has the scoop.

Real Housewives of Orange County might have a potentially good Season 18. Yes, Tamra Judge will still be there but if Alexis comes back it could get interesting. The network is staying mum but by now they definitely know something and are making us wait for it.

In the interim, everyone can begin judging Alexis for once again picking a questionable love interest. Unless she is specifically doing this to irritate Shannon, then Lex would probably get a pass. That said, it appears she and John are confirmed as a couple. Normally this is where I would say “congratulations” but John is a douche so I’ll provide a look of disgust.

Shannon’s ex and Alexis met through friends at The Quiet Woman – also known as the only restaurant in Newport Beach. They were photographed together and as soon as the pic was plopped on social media, the streets went wild.

No labels? No problem.

An insider shared, “Currently, they’re not using labels like boyfriend or girlfriend, but they’ve been spending a lot of time together and have been enjoying learning about each other.” That’s awesome, so Alexis should now be fully aware John is only there for the camera and he’ll ditch her as soon as filming is over.

Both Alexis and John recently dumped their significant others, so they’re currently bonding over a mutual healing journey. “The two have been supportive companions as they navigate newly single life,” the source continued. “This common background paired with a mutual attraction has made it easy for Alexis and John to form a natural connection.” Someone who has a film crew following her is a no-brainer for John. There, I fixed it.

As far as Season 18 goes, Tammy Sue got her contract. Heather Dubrow and Shannon are also locked in. At this time the fate of Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Jennifer Pendranti are unknown. Alexis may or may not be pulled off the bench. Oh, and Vicki Gunvalson is still crying in a corner somewhere. Stay tuned!

Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18 will return in 2024 on Bravo.
