The truth always comes to light.
Rumors have been floating around that Real Housewives of Orange County friend Nicole James was engaged to Jim Bellino.
In a recent post, we revealed that Shannon Beador wasn’t Nicole’s only link to RHOC.
Nicole previously dated Jim, the ex-husband of former RHOC star Alexis Bellino, who starred on the show from seasons 5 thru 8.
While allegations of Nicole and Jim’s engagement have been swirling all across the Bravosphere, AllAboutTRH can now EXCLUSIVELY confirm that those rumors couldn’t be further from the truth.
Sources close to RHOC have confirmed to AllAboutTRH that Nicole was NEVER engaged to Jim despite rumors claiming otherwise.
Per the source, “Jim and Nicole were never engaged. They dated for a short time.”
As for that photo of Nicole sporting what looked like an engagement ring, our source told us that the ring was nothing more than a “promise ring.”
“Nicole and Jim split on good terms, and they wish each other nothing but the best,” the source adds.
A second RHOC source also confirmed that “Nicole was never engaged to Jim. Those rumors are completely false.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
