On the May 1, 2011 episode of Watch What Happens Live, Alexis Bellino shares with Andy Cohen why her husband Jim refuses to shoot with the women of The Real Housewives of Orange County this season and which housewife Jim dated.
During the May Day Special of Watch What Happens Live, Andy and Alexis discuss Episode 9 of The Real Housewives of Orange County and Andy wants to know the real reason Alexis was so upset at Peggy’s dinner party. Alexis explains not only was she upset that her husband wasn’t there, but also that she told a fib about why Jim wasn’t there. She said it was weird that Peggy even asks her during the shoot why Jim wasn’t there because the party was on a Saturday and Alexis told Peggy on Tuesday before the party that Jim wouldn’t be coming.
Fans may have noticed that Jim is strangely absent from this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County. In an earlier episode this season, Alexis Bellino barely mentions Jim’s absence, just saying that Jim decided to shoot less this season. On Watch What Happens Live, Alexis explains the real reason: Jim refuses to shoot with Vicki and Tamra. Andy asks if it’s because the two women intimidate Jim. Alexis informs Andy that the women do not intimidate Jim, more like disgust him and he just refuses to film with the two.
Andy happens to ask if the tension between Alexis Bellino and Peggy Tanous is because Jim dated Peggy at one time. Alexis admits Jim and Peggy dated in the past, but that isn’t the reason for the tension. Andy tries to question Alexis further about the Jim and Peggy relationship, but Alexis says she didn’t ask Jim the details of that relationship and that he married her, so that’s all that matters. Andy seems taken aback by this “breaking news” and says he’ll ask Peggy about it on the Real Housewives reunion show.
Do you think the underlying tension between Alexis and Peggy is because Jim dated Peggy in the past or is their friendship on the rocks because of Peggy’s new friendships with Tamra and Vicki?
Watch What Happens Live airs Sunday nights at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
