Alexis Bellino Returns to ‘RHOC’ Amidst Shannon Beador Feud

ORANGE COUNTY, California – Alexis Bellino is making a comeback on “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” but it seems that one cast member may not be too happy about it. Sources say that Bellino, who left the series in 2013, will be returning as a friend of the show. Filming for Season 18 has just begun and Bellino joined the other housewives on Tuesday.

The biggest source of drama this season will likely be the tension between Bellino and Shannon Beador. Both women have something in common now – they have dated the same man, John Janssen. Bellino recently started dating Janssen, who was previously in a relationship with Beador from July 2019 to November 2022.

According to reports, Beador felt blindsided by the breakup and Bellino dating her former flame has not helped the situation. Bellino and Janssen have been going on getaways together and Bellino has formed a good relationship with Janssen’s children, something Beador publicly stated she did not have.

This isn’t the first time Beador and Bellino have clashed. Before Bellino and Janssen got together, Beador made her dislike for Bellino clear. However, Bellino has stated that she is not involved in the defamation lawsuit filed against her and Tamra Judge by Beador’s ex-husband.

It’s clear that Bravo is taking advantage of the messy and complicated relationship between these two by featuring them on the hit TV show. Fans of “RHOC” can expect an emotional and drama-filled season with Bellino’s return.

By bringing back Bellino, Bravo is likely looking to stir up some drama and increase viewership for the show. With the tension between Bellino and Beador, fans will be eager to tune in and see how the dynamics play out. As filming for Season 18 continues, only time will reveal the full extent of the drama between these two cast members.
