Before Alexis Bellino was fixin’ plates for her husband Jim and ordering SkinnyGirl margaritas on TV, she was just a regular small-town girl from Hannibal, Mo. married to a regular guy. Of course, this regular girl had dreams; like a smaller nose, bigger boobs, and a bucketful of money.
At least that’s the song her ex-husband Jeff Barry sang to Star Magazine (via Bravo Fan and Reality Tea). Barry says that after they got married in 2002 they moved to San Diego, and Alexis got hooked on expensive jeans. In order to fill get her jeans fix she slept a with married man with three kids. Jeff Barry caught on and got scary stealth, pretending to be a friend of hers through email. Alexis fell for the set-up and got so close with the friend her husband was pretending to be she spilled the beans about her infidelity!
Barry then sent out a mass email to everyone he’s ever met or been connected to Alexis on Facebook calling her a “gold-digging home-wrecker and “2-dollar” wh*re. Very classy.
The divorce was finalized in 2004, and since then Alexis has married and had three children with Jim Bellino, who keeps her knee-deep in plastic surgery and nannies.
But where does Jim get his stash? He officially describes himself as a “self-made entrepreneur,” but what does that mean? According to Newport Beach’s Daily Pilot Jim Bellino “used to own the now-closed Margaritaville restaurant on West Coast Highway. Now he juggles numerous business endeavors these days, including “pawn loans and house flipping.” Hmmm, a closed restaurant and house-flipping doesn’t sound very lucrative (IN THIS ECONOMY), but pawn loans . . . . Maybe Simon Barney, Jeana Keough, and Lynne Curtin’s husband Frank should ask Jim how to get into that business.
