RHOC star Alexis Bellino and husband Jim Bellino call it quits after 13 years of marriage
The two tied the knot back in 2005 and share three children together: son James and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna. This is Alexis' second divorce.
Looks like second time is not quite the charm for Alexis Bellino. The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star and her husband are calling it quits after 13 years of marriage, and it's Jim who filed for the divorce. Court documents obtained by major outlets state that Jim filed for divorce on Thursday, June 21. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the couple ending their marriage and also listed "TBD" as their date of separation.
The couple had tied the knot back in 2005 and have three children together: son James and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna. As of now, Jim has sought joint and physical custody of the couple's kids and has also asked for spousal support from the former reality star.
As for Alexis, the 41-year-old had joined the cast of RHOC for its fifth season in 2009. She continued to be a full-time cast member for three consecutive seasons and only left the show ahead of its ninth season in 2009. It was following her ex-classmate, Tamra Judge joining the cast in season 10 of the show, that Alexis finally came clean about her departure, in an email to Andy Cohen.
The mail was to be read at the 2015 reunion of the show, and in its contents, she accused Judge of making a "mockery" of her "savior." The two women also went on to sharing mean texts at the time of the taping, but as but Judge's account of the tiff, they eventually made up later.
“You know what? It was really good. It was kind of a nice situation where she sat in front of me and she turned to me and she said, ‘I didn’t mean to come off bad. I’m very happy for you.’ And I just felt like there’s a reason for everything, for her sitting in front of me,” Judge shared in her June 2016 appearance on Watch What Happens Live. “You know, it was just really sweet, actually. It came out really nice.”
The news of the couple's separation doesn't really come as a shocker though, as the former Bravo star is quite frequent with sharing photos of herself and her kids on her social media accounts — especially Instagram — but there has been not a single photo of herself and her soon to be ex-husband, Jim, since April this year.
“There’s no one I’d rather do this Circle of Life with,” she captioned her Mother's Day special photo of herself laying on the ground with her son and daughters. “I love you three so much. I’m beyond thankful to be your mom. You are my heartbeat. #Mothersday #2018.” This isn't Alexis' first divorce, as her first marriage had come to an end back in 2004. She was married to her college sweetheart previously, for two years.
