After former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino split from Jim Bellino last year, her social media habits stayed relatively the same. Just no more pictures of Jim, which had been in short supply, anyhow. You know it is never a good sign when someone stops posting pictures of her significant other on Instagram!
Although Alexis was active on social media after announcing her divorce, her photos were generally of her children and the occasional inspirational quote. And of course, being Alexis, lots of selfies! Then, in February, she Instagram announced to the world that she had a new man, Andrew Bohn. And since then, Alexis has not been shy about showing him off. Now, Andrew’s estranged wife Andrea Bohn is asking for some social media respect from Alexis.
Tamra Judge is known to Real Housewives of the Orange County fans as someone who constantly stirs the pot and throws a lot of shade. Whether it’s in her talking heads during the regular season, her reunion antics, or various off-season promotional opportunities…Tamra doesn’t hold back when it comes to feuds with current or former cast members. Which brings us to our current quarrel between Tamra and Jim Bellino. If only Tamra stuck to her most famous insult about the Bellino’s. She probably wouldn’t be in this predicament (Jesus Jugs, anyone?).
Unfortunately for Tamra, Jim did not take her insults lying down. He responded via a blog post on his website. Jim addressed the controversy saying, “It’s unfortunate that I have to speak out on matters that I have attempted to keep private, and that others continue to attempt to portray me and my family in a false light.”
Many Real Housewives of Orange County fans were shocked when Jim Bellino and Alexis Bellino announced that they were divorcing last June. The couple always painted a picture of a happy marriage. But in Orange County, things are often not as they seem. Since Alexis turned in her orange after Season 8, she has been flying under the radar, for the most part. We don’t always have a good picture of what is going on in her life, other than lots of activities with her children and an occasional luxury vacation from her Instagram posts.
Now, Alexis has a new boyfriend named Andy Bohn. She has gone public with her new man in a big way. She posted the first known photos of the two together yesterday.
Gretchen took to Facebook to share that she felt compelled to share her side of how this thing actually came about. “First of all Slade and I were contacted by Jim, not the other way around. Even though we had not spoken to him since the show many yrs [sic] ago, we had no bad blood with him. He knew we had been in a similar case for years and had won a judgment against the individual who perpetuated those lies against us.”
As if that was not absurd enough, former Real Housewives of Orange County cast members Gretchen Rossi and her fiance Slade Smileyvolunteered to testify againstTamra and Shannon, even though they have absolutely nothing to do with this case. At all. Although Gretchen now claims they were subpoenaed to do so.
