New Jersey just ended. Atlanta's about to start. And now comes word Orange County will back for more.
Yeah, we're a little obsessed with Bravo's Real Housewives franchise, so we were totally happy to get the official word earlier today that The Real Housewives of Orange County is returning for a fifth season.
And get ready—a new Housewife has been added to the bunch…
Socialite Alexis Bellino is described in a Bravo press release as a "32-year-old spicy blonde who unabashedly lives life on her terms." She lives in Newport Coast with her self-made moneybags entrepreneur husband Jim Bellino and their three kids: James, 3, and 20-month-old twins Melania and Mackenna.
She also appears to be getting along with fellow Housewives Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney. There are plenty of pics of the three on Facebook enjoying the recent Fourth of July weekend.
Yes, Vicki and Tamra are coming back for the new season, as are Jeana Keough (guess she worked things out with Bravo), Gretchen Rossi and Lynne Curtin.
