RHOC’s John Janssen and Alexis Bellino Insinuate Shannon Beador is a ‘Narcissist’ Who Engaged in a ‘Smear Campaign’


The temperature isn’t the only thing heating up in Orange County! John Janssen and Alexis Bellino are throwing some major shade at RHOC’s Shannon Beador! Get all the tea!

This week on Instagram, John Janssen seemingly called out his ex-girlfriend, Shannon Beador for being a “narcissist.”

On Instagram, John shared a post that read:

“Dear narcissists, lying about the people you’ve abused doesn’t change the truth about who you are. You can go ahead and try to destroy our lives with lies, because we know that we can destroy yours with the truth. We see right through your façade…and it’s only a matter of time until others see through it as well.”

He captioned the post: “Never again!!!”

John’s current girlfriend, and returning RHOC star, Alexis Bellino commented, “Smear campaign is done. #truthwins” alongside several “100” emojis.

While it’s not certain that John and Alexis are referring to Shannon but it’s highly likely considering the current drama, legal and otherwise, they are all engaged in with each other.

As we previously report, John is suing Shannon for $75,000 after she borrowed money from him for a facelift.

On Wednesday, March 20, John Janssen filed a lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court against Shannon “for breach of oral contract and promissory fraud, among other things, to recover $75,000 he claims she failed to repay him.”

John Janssen alleges that the RHOC star “turned to him for financial support in early 2022, borrowing $40,000 via wire transfer on Jan. 23, 2022 for a facelift procedure. Then, on May 20, 2023, he gave her another $35,000 via personal check.”

In the court filing, the OC businessman claims that Shannon agreed to pay back both loans with interest. However, when he attempted to collect the payments in 2023 and 2024, the reality star failed to do so.

John is “seeking the full amount, plus accrued interest, costs, and reasonable attorneys’ fees.”

He has since insinuated that Shannon has major financial issues.

As for Shannon, she claims she offered to pay John the amount owed in full but he wanted her to sign a non-disclosure agreement, which she refused to do.

“Even though it’s not warranted, I offered to pay John the exact amount that he wanted,” Shannon said on the Monday, April 1, episode of SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live“But he turned the deal down because he didn’t want to sign a mutual non-disparagement agreement, and that’s standard in most settlements, and that’s where you say you’re not gonna talk badly about someone.”

After conferring with her legal team, the RHOC star now believes it’s best to let the case play out in the legal system.

“It’s frustrating because now my hands are tied,” she explained. “What am I supposed to do? Say, ‘Here’s all this money that you claim that I owe you, and go ahead. Say whatever you want about me.’ No. My attorney said I can’t let you do that, so I have to now go to trial and that’s a lot.”

Shannon also believes that John’s new girlfriend, returning RHOC alum Alexis Bellino, played a role in him suing her.

“Well, I’ve had two lawsuits. They’ve both had Bellino around it,” she said. “Interesting, isn’t it? A little bit.”

The 59-year-old says she can’t confirm that Alexis inspired John’s lawsuit against her; however, she finds it all “very coincidental.”

“I don’t know if she had anything to do with it or not,” Shannon added. “I really don’t know.”

In 2019, Shannon was awarded $138k in Alexis’ ex-husband Jim Bellino‘s lawsuit after she was dismissed from his $1 million defamation lawsuit against her and RHOC co-star Tamra Judge.

Shannon and John split in late 2022 after three and a half years of dating. He later moved with Alexis, who he began dating in November 2023.

Meanwhile, John and Alexis have insisted that they aren’t trying to hurt Shannon with their relationship.

“Of course, I don’t want Shannon to hurt. I wish her nothing but the best, but I’m focused on Alexis, her, and I,” he told Page Six’s Virtual Reali-Tea podcast in March, noting, “At some point, it’s not about Shannon.” 

Alexis added, “I personally care [how Beador feels]. Yes, we do care. We don’t want to hurt [her]. We’re not here to hurt anybody.”

“We didn’t plan on meeting each other,” John said, “but it happened, and I’m really happy it did.”

RHOC will return for season 18 in 2024.
