As one of the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” Alexis Bellino became best known on the show for her traditional and Christian household. Alexis was born in 1977 and grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, but today lives with her entrepreneur husband Jim Bellino in the Newport Beach area of Los Angeles. The two met many years ago when Alexis’s family purchased a luxury car from him, and within a short while the two were married.
Alexis Bellino and her family joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in the shows fifth season, and remained with the show through season eight. On The Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis oversaw a household where her primary roles were quite traditional, a departure from what is often observed on the “Real Housewives” programs. Although she had at one point worked as a news correspondent, the show revealed that she had quit her career to focus first on raising her three young children, maintaining a well-run household, and keeping up her appearances with hours of daily exercise and beauty treatments.
The Bellino’s are still today vocal in their belief that – at least for them – their traditional marriage and family is a number one priority. That being said, Alexis is also one of Jim’s biggest supporters as he builds a growing “trampoline park” empire. Although they are no longer with the show, the Bellinos were among the most recognized and most fascinating families featured on the Real Housewives franchise, and Alexis continues to make public appearances.
