The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino almost didn’t return for Season 8 of the long-running reality show thanks to some harsh bullying from her castmates (Jesus Jugs, anyone?), but we’re glad she reconsidered!


The Hannibal, Missouri native moved to sunny California after graduating with a marketing degree at the University of Missouri and tying the knot with hometown boyfriend Jeff Barry in 2002. The couple dropped anchor in San Diego, but the honeymoon period was short lived. Alexis and Jeff called it quits in 2003 after 15 months of marriage.


In 2005, Alexis said “I do” to her current husband, Jim Bellino. The duo have three kids together: son James, and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna. Settled in Newport Beach, Alexis Bellino joined the Real Housewives of Orange County cast in 2009 during Season 5, and hasn’t looked back since!


But being a reality star isn’t her only gig. Alexis works for Fox5 as a special reporter, and she’s launched her own successful line of dresses called Alexis Couture. She also writes a beauty tips column for CosmetiCare.com and co-owns Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Anaheim with her husband. Alexis has also made no secret of her religious proclivities, which has caused some friction with her RHOC castmates.
