The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 6 – Dinner with Fernanda – Bravo TV Official Site

On last week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Fernanda Rocha talked with Lynne Curtin about kissing Tamra. Fernanda’s ex-partner (and gym co-owner) had a strong reaction to Fernanda’s ‘little kiss.’ which didn’t make sense as they had not been together for over a year.

Marian, Fernanda’s ex, still has very strong feelings for Fernanda as she explains in this video… which explains why she was peeved at Fernanda at the gym.

Is this the same restaurant where Tamra and Eddie made out in front of Eddie’s friend?

Real Housewives of Orange County: Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Peggy Tanous, Alexis Bellino… RHOC Video Spew

March 8, 2011  2:35 pm

Looks like one of the Real Housewives of Orange County got one of those new video recorders or smartphones and decided to try it out while lunching with the other RHOOC by asking each other questions… everyone was present except for Vicki, who was WORKING, and Fernanda, who, despite being promoted as a permanent ‘Housewife’, has been relegated to the Kim G ‘supporting cast’ category:

NOTE:  While answering a question about whether Tamra and Eddie Judge will marry, Gretchen is in the background telling Tamra not to do it…get married, that is.  What a hypocrite!  Reliable word is that the highlight to her storyline this season is Gretchen and Slade Slimey get engaged.  So, apparently, that engagement isn’t working out that well… good!  (Even though they both deserve each other.)

And… all the OC Housewives are interchangeable.  They all have blonde hair with extensions, semi-embalmed faces, they sound alike and it bothers me.  The newest RHOOC, Peggy Tanous… is she really 41 years old?  If so, she needs to cut down on the botox immediately… she’s an old-looking 41.

UPDATED 6-7-2011

                                                   Da Bellinos… before Jimbo’s chin implant and neck lipo

After reading the letter the Bellinos sent earlier this week to their close friends (and, of course, several media outlets) in regard to their soon-to-be foreclosed Laguna Beach home (letter:  http://alexis-bellino.com/bellinos-bankrupt-–-not/), SH became curious as to why someone would feel they needed to explain their financial standing so publicly.

                                                     Freshly implanted chin and neck lipo… with Alexass and Wretched **BLEEECH**

SH began to look into Jim Bellino to get some insight as to his character, his personality and his business dealings to understand why he would publish such a defensive letter.

From what has been found, he’s a professional scammer and already knows his way around bankruptcy court.

Bellinosandhouse-300x225.jpg                                                                                       Jim and Alexis Bellino and the home they are desperate to unload in Newport Beach

By all accounts, 47-year-old Jim Bellino got a very lucky break in 2000 as the FBI had him on their radar for years.  He should be in jail for his knowing participation in a fraudulent national sports memorabilia business.

                                                                                     Jim Bellino actually forged ‘Mother Teresa’s’ name on a baseball and sold it!

Instead of jail time, Jim received a slap on the wrist and had to pay $30,000, along with serving one year’s probation and told by the Feds to stay out of the memorabilia business:

FBI’s Operation Bullpen hooks network

SAN DIEGO – The FBI’s Operation Bullpen has infiltrated and dismantled a network of 20 forgers, authenticators, wholesalers, and retailers who are responsible for the creation and sales of up to $100 million of forged memorabilia, items that are both sports and nonsports-related. Twenty individuals, all from California, are cooperating with federal officials in pleabargaining agreements on a variety of fraud and tax charges.

The operations of the J. DiMaggio Company have been shut down.  In addition, a significant number of items that were known forgeries carried a certificate of authenticity attributed to Don Frangipani; and Robert Proudy and Jim Bellino of Forensic Document Services (FDS). Forged items were supported by fake or misleading authentication documents. However, no charges have been brought against the latter authenticators.

To date, Wayne Bray of SCAA and James Bellino of FDS (FDS was banned from Ebay) have agreed to cease doing business in sports and celebrity memorabilia. Jim DiMaggio also is no longer authenticating memorabilia. FBI agent William Gore displayed a baseball forged with Mother Teresa’s name on it, which was accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the J DiMaggio company. Of the four authenticators, only Bray has pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to defraud the U.S.

A deferred prosecution agreement was reached with Jim Bellino.  No charges have been brought against the others.

A must-read detailed story about FDS and Jim Bellino: http://bullpenandmore.wordpress.com/2010/03/19/jim-bellino-reality-tv-star-and-counterfeit-authenticator/

BEFORE the authentication business:

In 1997, Jim Bellino founded AAA Wholesale Billiards, renamed it Wholesale Billiards in 2003, and then renamed the company Rectivity Inc./ Pool Tables USA in 2005. All of these businesses share the same address: 2714 S Grand Ave, Santa Ana CA.

742366969_441_Bellino-Main-Cherry                                                The Bellino Collection

Rectivity, Inc./ Pool Tables USA, Inc., operated as an online vendor of pool tables, poker tables, and matching game room collections. On December 10, 2008, an involuntary petition for liquidation under Chapter 7 was filed against Rectivity, Inc. in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California.

The state of California had listed Rectivity’s business status as “forfeited”:  The business entity’s powers, rights and privileges were suspended or forfeited in California 1) by the Franchise Tax Board for failure to file a return and/or failure to pay taxes, penalties, or interest; and/or 2) by the Secretary of State for failure to file the required Statement of Information and, if applicable, the required Statement by Common Interest Development Association.

According to Newport Beach’s Daily Pilot, Jim Bellino “used to own the now-closed Margaritaville restaurant on West Coast Highway. He juggles numerous business endeavors these days, including pawn loans and house flipping.”

The Bellino’s other properties can be seen here: http://www.celebrityrealestatenews.com/2009/09/10/alexis-bellinos-other-properties/

UPDATE 6-7-2011:  The Bellino’s sold their Newport Beach house at a short sale in March 2011 for $3 million… here.

Jim-Bellino-and-Alexis-Bellino.jpg&w=150&h=150&t=1The Scammers Bellinos… Jim and Alexis Bellino

While looking for Jim Bellino’s pawn shop and/or loans, SH found an ad (written in all caps) he placed for his “financial services” on Craigslist in February 2010, in which Jimbo states that he’s using his own money:

“NO GAMES!!!!!   THIS IS MY PRIVATE MONEY. IF YOU HAVE COLLATERAL JUST E-MAIL YOUR SCENARIO AND I WILL E-MAIL BACK TERMS, THAT SIMPLE.  CALIFORNIA REAL ESTATE AND OTHER COLLATERAL SEE BELOW.  NO CREDIT SCORES… NO JOB… I DONT CARE… I CARE ABOUT THE ASSET.

                                                                Alexis Bellino pictured … with photos of Jim and Alexis Bellino’s Newport Beach house that they are desperately trying to unload.  Detailed info regarding the Bellino’s Newport Beach house at Real Estalker here.

On September 9, the Bellino’s home was pictured in Celebrity Real Estate News with this description (more “creative financing” with Jim Bellino):

“SELLERS (The Bellino’s) ARE OPEN TO A TRADE OF A SMALLER HOME IN THE NEWPORT BEACH OR SURROUNDING AREAS. SELLER IS EXPERIENCED IN CREATIVE FINANCING AND WOULD ENTERTAIN ANY CREATIVE FINANCING OFFERS.”

According to several sources it wasn’t by chance the Bellino’s got on “The Real Housewives of OC,” they tried very hard to get on the show and eventually it worked out for them.

“Alexis and Jim did everything they could to get on this show. They bought a house from Jeana (Keough) and befriended her.

They bought a car from Simon (Tamra’s ex-husband) and befriended him.

Alexis joined Gretchen’s gym (Fernanda’s) and befriended her.

They watched the show every week since it’s been aired and tried to get as many connections as possible. I do have to say, it worked. Though it was expensive! Fancy houses and luxury cars aren’t cheap. Hope they feel it is worth it.”

With such a can of worms to open when looking at their past, why would anyone such as the Bellinos TRY to get on a reality show?

“Before” photos of Alexis just for the hell of it…

   Yes… this is Alexis Bellino
