The rumor mill is churning away after RHOC alum Alexis Bellino was spotted out with Shannon Beador’s ex-boyfriend, John Janssen. Get all the deets!
Amid the photo, sources tell Radar Online that John Jansen is “interested” in Alexis Bellino and is already pursuing the RHOC alum.
“John and Alexis are talking,” one insider said, adding that John has been “calling and texting” Alexis. Another source insists that John and Alexis are “dating,” but it’s not serious.
However, a third insider said John is “an a–“ and “clout chaser,” noting that the whole situation is “gross.”
A rep for Alexis Bellino also teases that something may be brewing between John and the former RHOC star.
“Alexis and John have so much in common that it’s easy to see why they are quickly becoming friends,” Alexis’ publicist, Spencer Lubitz, tells Page Six.
The rep explains that Alexis and John “happened to be at The Quiet Woman at the same time when they initially met, and a friendship was born.”
“Orange County is a small place, so it’s not surprising they would cross paths,” he teases.
Meanwhile, Alexis Bellino took to Instagram on Tuesday night to shut down the “BS” and “rumors” about her personal life.
“Birthday Shopping with my new 16 yr old… What I know in life is don’t let rumors or BS get in your way. I’ll be the first to let you know when anything changes in my relationship life! Until then… we live, laugh, and love!!! #dontlistentothenoise?? #friendshipscanform And what’s important is heck! YES, I bought this workout set lololol! ?????”
As for Shannon Beador, she is focused on herself amid the gossip about John and Alexis.
On Instagram, Shannon posted two photos of herself in a long-sleeve mini black velvet dress with tights and black stilettos. In one of the photos, the RHOC star laughed and smiled from ear to ear while posing in a hotel elevator.
“A good laugh heals a lot of hurts ?,” Shannon captioned the Instagram post on Monday.
It’s also important to note that hours before Shannon got into her DUI car crash in September, she was at a nearby bar – tipsy and complaining about former RHOC star Alexis Bellino, who was also at the establishment.
TMZ reported Shannon was at Newport Beach hotspot “A Restaurant” with her friend and business partner, Steve Muller.
According to eyewitnesses, Shannon spent the night hanging by the bar and appeared tipsy. One witness said Shannon “was loud and boisterous through the night, with her arms flailing in the air.”
Shannon was also reportedly “bitching” about Alexis to anyone who would listen.
The 59-year-old has no reall history with Alexis. However, she was involved in a nasty lawsuit with Alexis’ ex-husband, Jim Bellino.
Following Shannon’s arrest for DUI, Alexis responded to TMZ’s request for a comment:
“When my girlfriends and I arrived for a fun night out together, it was soon brought to my attention that Shannon was also at the same restaurant. Shannon and I did not interact that night, but it greatly saddens me to learn that she may harbor negative feelings or resentment toward me, as I was not involved in Jim Bellino’s lawsuit against Shannon. From one single mother to another, I wish Shannon nothing but the best as I know she is facing trying times ahead.”Alexis Bellino
Something tells me that Shannon’s anger with Alexis isn’t about Jim Bellino’s lawsuit and, in fact, may have stemmed from a budding relationship between Alexis and John. That’s just a theory, but it makes much more sense.
RHOC will return for season 18 in 2024.
