The reality show on Bravo TV will get an upgrade with the participation of Alexis Bellino in the fifth season.
There will be a new face when "The Real Housewives of Orange County" returns for the fifth season. Bravo TV has just announced that a "spicy blonde" housewife is added to the line-up to revamp the show. Her name is Alexis Bellino and she is a 32-year-old who "unabashedly lives life on her terms."
Alexis is married to a self-made entrepreneur Jim Bellino. Together they have a three-year-old named James and twenty-month-old twin girls Melania and Mackenna. The family reside in one of the "most prominent and envied areas of Orange County". According to the press release, Alexis, who is a stay-at-home mom, "keeps herself busy by being the best wife and mother she can, and when she does have a free moment, she likes to work out to keep herself looking and feeling her best."
Along with the introduction of the new wife, Bravo TV confirms that Tamra Barney, Lynne Curtin, Vicki Gunvalson, Jeana Keough and Gretchen Rossi will all be in the fifth season. No date is announced yet for the premiere.
