Alexis Bellino Has a New Boyfriend… and Babies on the Brain

5 Feb

Bravo.com:

Alexis Bellino appears to have found love again after finalizing her divorce from Jim Bellino back in August. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum went Instagram official with her new man, Andy Bohn, over Super Bowl weekend — and she even teased that they have some big plans for the future. The revelation came after sharing a snapshot in which he appeared to be cradling her belly: “No I’m not preggers, he is holding my hand. But we wouldn’t mind one more in the future.”

She also captioned the photo with the hashtags: #loveisintheair and #myforever.

The Bellinos first announced their separation in June 2018 after 13 years of marriage. They are parents to three kids, James, 12, and 10-year-old twins, Melania and Mackenna. They confirmed at the time, “We have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children, and we ask that you respect our privacy by not theorizing about the reasons for our divorce.”

Shortly after she and Jim confirmed their split, she vowed to “make a brand new ending” — and with a new love in her life, she seems to be keeping that vow. She also moved into a new home in the Orange County city of San Juan Capistrano while in the middle of the divorce.  She bought the home with Jim for $1.3 million before their filing, and the deed was later put in her name.

CelebrityInsider.com:

Shannon Beador can breathe a huge sigh of relief. A judge just threw out a $1 million lawsuit that Jim Bellino filed against her for defamation – and inside sources claim the Real Housewives of Orange County star is “completely relieved.”

Bellino, who was married to former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino, sued Beador and Tamra Judge for comments they made following his divorce. He claims they destroyed his reputation and wanted a $1 million payout in restitution.

“I’m relieved the judge agreed with our position,” Beador shared.

An insider told Radar Online that Beador considered the lawsuit a complete waste of time and resources. The RHOC star thought Bellino had no chance of winning the case and was only looking to drag her name through the mud.

Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador Want Jim Bellino To Prove They Harmed His Business

18 Dec

OKmagazine.com:

Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador are asking Jim Bellino for some receipts! After Alexis Bellino’s ex-husband claimed their words cost him $1 million in damages, the Real Housewives of Orange County stars are demanding he prove his accusations.  
Documents obtained by The Blast Opens a New Window. show that both of the Real Housewives of Orange County costars are calling into question his claims that they harmed his trampoline brand named SkyZone.
Shannon claimed that Jim’s allegations that “visitors who regularly visit SkyZone no longer do because they have heard that ‘people get paralyzed there” does nothing “to link Ms. Beador to any purported loss of business.”
Both women believe the declaration he filed is nothing but a “self-serving statement” and argued that he provided no evidence to back up his claims against them.
“Bellino should have presented a declaration from any such investor or presented another writing as a business record that proves his assertion,” Shannon said. “Instead, he rests solely on his own statement. It stretches credulity to believe that an investor would be swayed in making a business decision by a comedic performance in a comedy club.”

Shannon Beador: Jim Bellino Just Wants to Ruin My Finances in Lawsuit

PageSix.com:

Shannon Beador doesn’t have the time or money for Jim Bellino.

The “Real Housewives of Orange County” star filed court documents in Bellino’s ongoing $1 million defamation lawsuit against her and Tamra Judge, telling the judge that Bellino has no right to her text messages and emails and that he shouldn’t be allowed to depose Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley, per court papers obtained by The Blast.

Beador argued that if Bellino is allowed to depose the couple and seek documents from her she will have to spend tens of thousands of dollars for his “fishing expedition for information irrelevant” to his lawsuit as she does not believe that the couple “will be able to provide any admissible evidence of any ‘anger’ or ‘ill will’ that [she] harbors against the Bellinos.”

Beador, 54, also wants the suit dismissed on the basis that she joined the Bravo hit in 2014 after Bellino, 56, and his ex-wife Alexis left the franchise and that her statements were not defamatory towards him.

Alexis and Jim Bellino Comment on Their Divorce and Why They Decided to Split

29 Jun

USmagazine.com:

Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino and her husband, Jim Bellino, have broken their silence regarding their split one week after Jim filed for divorce.

“It is with heavy hearts that we inform the public of our mutual decision to end our marriage — but it’s important to us that you know we made this choice together, with love, and as the best decision for our children’s future,” the two said in a joint statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, June 28. “We hold one another in the highest regards as spouses, and especially as parents. We have agreed on 50/50 custody of the children, and we ask that you respect our privacy by not theorizing about the reasons for our divorce.”

“In recent days and weeks, there has been a lot of negative discussion about our marriage and why it is ending,” their statement continued. “Outside of the news of our decision to part ways, there is nothing provocative, alluring, or sordid about the dissolution of our marriage. Quite to the contrary, we strongly support each other just as we have since the beginning of our relationship.”

Us Weekly confirmed on June 21 that Jim had filed for divorce from his wife of 13 years. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is asking for spousal support from Alexis, who starred on RHOC for three season from 2009 to 2013.

Lauri Peterson’s Son Josh Faces Additional Criminal Charges

27 Aug

OCRegister.com:

The son of a former star on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” is facing nearly a dozen new criminal charges linked to an attempted-murder case.

Joshua Waring, 27, the troubled son of former reality TV personality Lauri Peterson, was initially charged in June with attempted murder for allegedly shooting a 35-year-old man in the lower torso in Costa Mesa.

Two other victims, a man and a woman, were standing nearby but not hit, prompting prosecutors to file two additional attempted-murder charges.

Waring refused to come out of his jail cell for his first court appearance, but in July he appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to the charges, court records show.

This month, prosecutors filed nine new felony charges related to the case, including discharging a firearm at a home, assault, battery, reckless driving and resisting arrest.

Waring has denied the new allegations and is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 28. His attorney, Ray Chen, could not be reached for comment.

After the alleged shootings, Waring led police on a chase in a stolen BMW, authorities said. After getting into a traffic accident, he took off on foot near Fourth and Terminal streets in Santa Ana and tried to hide in a store before surrendering, authorities said.

A resident of San Juan Capistrano, Waring has a history of mostly drug-related charges. He has been arrested in the past on suspicion of assault and spousal battery and has several cases pending in Orange County Superior Court.

Lydia McLaughlin Reveals She Is Now Close Friends With Gretchen Rossi & Slade Smiley

24 Feb

RadarOnline.com:

When Lydia McLaughlin starred on The Real Housewives of Orange County’s 8th season, the fervent Christian clashed with costars Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley. But in her upcoming book, the Beverly Hills Lifestyle managing editor, 33, reveals she is now at peace with the controversial couple, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.

“During filming I mostly argued with Gretchen and Slade,” McLaughlin, married to entrepreneur Doug, 33, writes in Beyond Orange County: A Housewives Guide To Faith & Happiness, out on April 14. “But Doug and I have gone on double dates with them once we stopped filming, and consider them true friends!”

She even dedicated her Christian advice book/memoir in part to the pair, who were booted off the Bravo series in 2013.

“I am thankful for the friendships with Alexis, Jim, Gretchen, and Slade that continue to grow,” she says in the acknowledgements, also referring to former cast member and longtime friend Alexis Bellino, 38, and her husband Jim.

McLaughlin infamously lashed out at Smiley, 41, on camera when he made a comment about her pin thin frame.

Rossi, 36, hit back at McLaughlin for calling out her fiancée, snapping “I really want to be friends with you and cool with you … but now you’re starting to upset me.”

McLaughlin left the series after just one season, telling Star magazine she wanted to have a third child out of the spotlight.

She welcomed son Roman Scott on November 4, 2014.

The 9 Most Hated ‘Real Housewives’ Ever

5 Feb

NYPost.com:

Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise is the gift that keeps on giving.

From the extravagant lifestyles to the constant catfights, viewers can’t get enough of the reality TV juggernaut. And while some Housewives are beloved by fans, others have more Internet trolls than actual Twitter followers.

Case in point: “Beverly Hills” alum Brandi Glanville.

During Tuesday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” the tension between Glanville and Kyle Richards came to a head. While jabs below the belt aren’t anything new — especially when it comes to the leggy blond — coming between two sisters is quite another matter. With Richards’ relationship with older (and troubled) sister Kim now in jeopardy, it seems Glanville is better at stirring up drama than keeping her friendships intact.

But 90210’s resident pot-stirrer isn’t the only Housewife whom viewers have come to detest.

There’s no question that the Housewives live a life of luxury, but some are bit more pretentious about it than others. “Orange County” alum Bellino didn’t win over her fellow wives by trying to one-up them in almost every conversation.\

Though she eventually got the ax after four seasons, it wasn’t without plenty of tension-fueled dinners.

Oh, Aviva — where to even begin? From her scuffles with former co-star Carole Radziwill to the infamous leg toss, Drescher knew how to get people talking — and not in a good way.

Not only did Drescher make frenemies with “Housewives of New York City,” but fan pages dubbed her “Me-Viva” for her self-centered attitude.
