Alexis Bellino Explains Her Fake Wedding Ring & Says She & Heather Dubrow Are Friends Now!


Alexis Bellino is taking to her Bravo Blog to discuss the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Alexis states that she thinks Vicki should make the decision whether or not she’s with Brooks and she wishes Briana would be more supportive of her mother. Alexis reveals she and Heather are in a better place now, but wearing a fake wedding ring doesn’t make her phony. Alexis says she only travels with a CZ ring to make sure she doesn’t lose her real one.

Alexis writes, “My opinion on Vicki and Brooks stays firm in what I have said the past year, and that is that Vicki needs to make the decision on her own. When I asked Briana how she felt about it, I was hoping to get a different answer than I did. I thought maybe having baby Troy would help Briana look at things differently. I knew Briana was completely against her mom dating Brooks, however, it’s not really Briana’s choice. I am not being insensitive to Briana, however, as I have already said in several of my blogs. Vicki is a 51 year old woman, who can make up her own mind. Whether Brooks is good or bad for Vicki, she will discover it on her own. It’s like a mom telling her child not to touch the oven…some children must touch the oven and learn the hard way.

I feel bad that Vicki and Briana are experiencing this stress in their relationship. It must be difficult when your daughter is giving you an ultimatum, and who knows — I may react the exact same way as Vicki if one of my daughters did.

It’s always difficult to blog on scenes that took place months ago because often times the relationships are different when the scene actually airs. The next scene is the perfect example of this because Heather and I are currently in a better place and I don’t want to confuse now for then. However, there are things I must comment from this episode.

Heather making the remark about my cubic zirconia is uncalled for. The fact is (and I explained this to all the women) that I only wore a cubic zirconia to Costa Rica because it was unsafe to wear my real diamond wedding ring. However, thanks to the women making fun of me, I have since given my extremely nice cubic zirconia away. I wear an eternity band now when I travel without Jim. It’s sad and irritating that I let their comments affect me, but the truth is that it did. Calling me phony for wearing it is actually incorrect. It’s the exact opposite of phony. If I had NOT admitted that I wore a cubic zirconia, then THAT would have been phony. I was authentic and honest about the CZ, and I didn’t hesitate to tell them. I honestly never thought it would have offended the ladies so much. I have many wealthy friends that travel with cubic zirconias, and hopefully they haven’t allowed this judging to change their ways like I did. By the way. . .why was my wedding ring even a topic of conversation the first time Heather met Lydia?

Ending on a positive note, I’m so glad you all get to know Lydia this episode! She is a happy yet STERN girl and I think you all will really like her. I love that she is always smiling, yet if you cross her, she will bite your head off! The dinner and boat ride with her and Doug looked amazing. They are a cute couple. The duck call really summed up her personality!”

  1. OMG!!! really!! this whole thing with wearing a CZ ring when your too afraid to wear the real diamond, well then here’s one for you; just wear your wedding band!!!!! What did I just use common sense!!! Poor Alexis, she is a child trapped in a women’s body.

  2. i dont understand why everyone goes so hard on alexis shes like the taylor of rhoc. although i still dont get why she wears the fake diamond but at the end of the day who cares

  3. Luv lex and Jim.They are so funny, and this season they are the best parts of the OC. Gretchen needs to stop with the baby talk and grow up! she and slade a bore.Heather and Alexis never really had a chance.I new someday they would be fine.I think even Tamra will not say such mean things to Alexis and she will come around and be kinder by mid-season.Luv the Bussiness ventures Lex and Tamra with there partners are doing.FUN!

  4. Lots of people wear fake rings, sport fake bags, etc. If you don’t like it, then don’t do it yourself. I, for once, agree with Alexis here on this one. And.. really, ..a duck call? Thank you for clarifying because I had no clue what the hell that girl was doing!

  5. I don’t know if it’s just me but I would rather have a smaller real diamond than a huge one knowing it’s fake?

  6. I agree Emma and Trixie you nailed it. Alexis is a little girl trapped in a woman’s body who wants everyone to think she is a princess and be jealous of her. If people are mean they are bullies and she is going to go home (ala quit the series). Unfortunately her mother (Jim) said they needed money and she had to go back to school and can’t understand why everyone hates her instead of wanting to be her.

  7. You guys have it all wrong. Lex may be ditzy at times, but she is a genuine girl. She admits when she and Jim have had financial difficulties. She admits to wearing a fake diamond ring, which by the way, I think is adorable (that she cares so much about the diamond her husband gave her). She has even admitted to struggling with an eating disorder. If she wanted everyone to be jealous of her, she would reveal NO flaws or insecurities. And by the way it is very cowardly and immature to put down a woman via commenting on a blog post.

  8. Traditionally, when weathy European women traveled, they would leave their real jewelry behind and wear identical costume jewelry. It was considered wise and responsible back then. I, for one, still think it is wise and responsible. Alexis’ mistake was in believing her castmates were wise enough to understand this.

  9. Lot’s of ppl wear CZ’s when they travel just incase the real rock gets lost for a reason. Why is the wedding set such a topic of conversation??? My only guess is that Alexis’ ring has the biggest stone and the other’s are jealous?? If nothing was admitted to, then no one would even know.

  10. I love alexis! Shes probably one of the best on the show. Any classy smart woman would leave their super expensive ring at home and not take the chance of getting mugged. I dont blame her one bit. Too bad the other ladies are that jealous of her. I do have to say that I love tamera on the show and im glad she explained her personality alittle more sense we only see bits and pieces of their lives. Heather bugs me. Shes too full of herself. Shes not that good of an actress, shes the fake. They sold their house because they couldnt afford it! Thats living beyond your means!! Vikkis son in law is a nut job. He wishes that he OWNS that house. What a jerk off. He seems like he would be an abusive weirdo. I couldnt handle someone like him. I divorse him in a second. Why invite all those people to your home if they cant sit on the couch. Isnt that what its for. After this episode I have decided that he is just with briana for the fame and his mother in laws money. He could give two shits about briana. Enbarassing! Go vikkis brother! He needed someone to talk to him like he talked to lidias mom. Go live in your white trash appartment or better yet why dont they move in with his parents? Hes the loser. Vikki is old enough to make her own decisions! Let her! Rant done!

  11. The “attack” over the fake wedding ring is ONLY

    a symbol of your many materialistic and better-than-thou comments and lifestyle you have.

    The tip of the iceberg so to speak.

    Be a real person Jesus Joogs.
