Ex-housewife Alexis Bellino has always been known for her excess. During her time on Real Housewives of Orange County, we often heard her bragging about houses, cars and expensive handbags. Her castmates famously ganged up on her on their trip to Costa Rica to point this out. Gretchen Rossi called her materialistic. Vicki Gunvalson (rest in housewives peace) told her she should be saving money instead of buying cars. And super villain Tamra Judge called on Jesus Jugs to”be a true person” for once. The verbal barrage ended with Alexis retreating to her room in tears, saying that everyone was bullying her.
While her marriage to Jim Bellino ended and her paychecks from RHOC dried up once she
got fired from left the show, Alexis didn’t exactly reign it in. She kept the cash flow coming in from super awkward stints on Marriage Boot camp: Reality Stars-Family Edition and a new relationship with a guy that I’m assuming also has money. I don’t know how much but I do know it’s enough for them to land on an episode of Below Deck together.
Hell hath no fury like a scorned Shannon Storms Beador! Shannon is the last surviving member of the Tres Amigas on Real Housewives of Orange County. If we’ve learned anything about her over the years, it’s that she does not take any accusation or legal battle lying down. This woman makes it her job to ensure that we ALL SEE THE TRUTH!
This past season of RHOC we gained more info about the lawsuit filed by human garbage pile Jim Bellino against Shannon and Tamra Judge. Viewers discovered some of this information simply because Kelly Dodd likes to shout about legal issues (looking at you Jane Roe Vicki Gunvalson). But now this lawsuit has apparently been settled and Shannon is coming for Jimbo’s money in the name of Jesus – er Jesus Jugs.
In the cast shakeup heard around the world–OK–in Housewife Land–the departures of OG Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge from the Real Housewives of Orange County were recently announced. After Vicki’s demotion to Friend of last season, her exit was not a total shock. Tamra’s departure was a little more surprising. Housewife OG’s and long-time cast members are probably shaking in their Louboutins–if they are smart and their reality egos allow for reflections on their Housewife status.
Vicki went out relatively classy–thanking her fans for their support. Tamra took her leave when she was only offered three episodes to wrap up her storyline. Then she appeared to unfollow her former co-stars on Instagram. Who could blame her? Being shown the door has to sting. If all that wasn’t enough, both Vicki and Tamra have more fallout to deal with from their lives as former Housewives–besides tarnished reputations, that is.
Do male scorpions sting? Or is it females? Or both? On Below Deck everyone is feeling stung, which is maybe why they’re also lashing out.
Rhylee Gerber was doing fairly well after her pep talk from Captain Lee Rosbach saved her from getting fired, but a few crispy scorpions (and dickish deckhands) proved to be her undoing. Poor Rhylee – this is the worst case of gaslighting ever!
But first — sexyThaitimes! Alexis Bellino is still dry-humping her way to heaven. The former Real Housewives Of Orange County star is on board to celebrate her divorce from Jim by begging her new boyfriend to propose. Remember when Jesus Barbie aspired to be nothing more than the perfect Christian wife, toting a blinged-out bible to prayer practice (which obviously took place while simultaneously spinning)? Well Alexis abandoned that in a Coto Mansion. New Alexis is more Eve who ate the apple right off Drew Bohn‘s tree. Sadly we had to witness the whole thing.
One person was involved in just about every dramatic moment on Real Housewives of Orange County Season 14. Tamra Judge–take a bow! Whether she was stirring up trouble behind the scenes or confronting people to their faces, Tamra was working hard to keep her orange. She helped the recently demoted Vicki Gunvalson spread sex train rumors about co-star Kelly Dodd.
Tamra talked viciously about Shannon Beador behind Shannon’s back. During Vicki and Steve Lodge’s engagement party, which was the RHOC season finale, Tamra got very drunk. Again. She ended up hiding in some shrubs during the party, having a hysterical fit because Kelly tried to involve herself in Jim Bellino’s lawsuit against Tamra. Jim Bellino, RHOC alum Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband, is suing Tamra for $1 million dollars. Shannon was later dismissed from the lawsuit. Tamra is drowning in legal fees. Gina Kirschenheiter had the unenviable task of talking Tamra out of the bushes at the end of the party.
Is anyone else exhausted from this season of Below Deck? From chef drama with Kevin Dobson to the toxic “Bru Crew” trio of Ashton Pienaar, Tanner Sterback and Brian de Saint Pern, I feel like I have been working a long charter season myself. When loose-cannon Rhylee Gerber is the most likeable person on the deck crew, you know you have personnel problems.
This week, Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino showed up on Below Deck with her boyfriend Andy Bohn in a Bravo crossover move. Admittedly, I was expecting Alexis to be up to her old diva ways. Surprisingly, that hasn’t happened (yet!) as Alexis has been too busy engaging in some serious affection with her man. Kate Chastain and Courtney Skippon made it clear that they were not fans of Alexis’ excessive PDA. Not surprisingly, Alexis had something to say about it on social media.
On last night’s Below Deck there was a blast from the past when former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino was the charter guest. Guess who was nowhere to be found? JimBlob Bellino! Because Alexis was in Thailand to celebrate her divorce with new boyfriend Drew. Jesus Barbie take the wheel.
Also Rhylee Gerber did not get sacked! Despite Ashton Pienaar‘s attempted mutiny to have her fired, Captain Lee Rosbach saw through the BS to realize that Ashton needs to do his job as boson and work with his team.
Sadly for Rhylee not all victors get the spoils. Even though she kept her position the entire deck crew is now barely acknowledging her and keeping it at minimum civil. Plus Rhylee knows they all conspired to try and have her fired so even when they try to joke with her later she isn’t sure if it’s a dig or sincere sarcasm. But it has been well-established that all the men on this boat (except for Captain Lee) are complete and utter asses, and last night definitely reinforced it!
Tonight, Below Deck and Real Housewives of Orange County will merge. Former Orange County Housewife Alexis Bellino is a charter guest on the new episode. She and her new man Andy Bohn decided to charter a boat to celebrate her divorce from Jim Bellino.
Let’s just hope they don’t talk too much trash about Jim. They don’t want to end up in a legal mess like Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador.
