Does anyone ever miss Alexis Bellino? Yeah, me neither. I can’t exactly say she was a housewife I enjoyed and I feel like outside of providing some unintentional comic relief on Real Housewives of Orange County, she is kind of easy to forget.
Her ex, Jim Bellino, is proving to be a little harder to get rid of after worming his way into last season’s drama in the OC. He made a money and relevance grab when he decided to sue Shannon Beador and Tamra Judge for talking shit about him. Which if you ask me, was well deserved. But despite what I think about Alexis, I’m glad she’s rid of her narcissist, pompous ex. And now she’s moved on to greener pastures in the relationship department.
Remember Jim Bellino? Of course, you don’t want to remember his huge face and probably keep memories of him locked up in that never-remember part of your brain. Is Jim also on your list of worst husbands from Real Housewives of Orange County? Because he’s right up there with Shane Simpson for me.
Not only is Jim archaic in his views on marriage and gender roles, but he also gets hyper-sensitive when people say mean things about him. For instance, when Jim and Alexis Bellino were married, they opened a number of trampoline parks. Back in 2018, when Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador were on a podcast they did what they do and talked trash about him. He retaliated by suing both of them for defamation.
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.
Last night’s Below Deck was certainly stiff with drama, wasn’t it!? Former ESPN host Jemele Hill came on board with a group of her girlfriends to celebrate her bachelorette party. They wanted smiling stewardesses, nonstop drinks, and a penis cake. Well they got everything, but the smiling stewardesses!
But first … le drama! With mere hours left before the new – famous! – charter guest arrives, Captain Lee Rosbach has to put all the naughty slumber-partying kids to bed with the threat of punishment. No dessert for a week! He storms to the aft deck like an enraged mommy woken from her slumber. The only thing he needed was curlers in his hair to complete the look, (pecs are the new curlers).
Kate Chastain slinks to her bed then bursts into sobs. Kate is beyond fed up with being taken advantage of by the men on this boat so good thing she only has 3 days left to go! The next morning the mood is tense and testy as Captain Lee calls the entire crew in for a meeting.
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.
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!
