Reality Star Alexis Bellino Promote’s Her Dress Line ‘Alexis Couture And Alexis Casual’

11 Aug

From the O.C. to MIA. Real Housewives of Orange County star and ascendant fashion designer Alexis Bellino took her talents to South Beach last weekend to promote her new dress lines, Alexis Couture and Alexis Casual.

Chatting with the Miami New Times — who described her lines as “as a smorgasbord of something you’d find at Cache, Forever 21, and the Disney Store” — Alexis dished about what drew her into reality TV, and where she’s hoping it will take her. “You know you’re not on a reality show to be on a reality show,” she told the paper. “You’re on it to use it as a platform and to meet people… I’m interested in getting into hosting. I’ve done a few pageants in the last year and I’m doing hosting for different organizations and for pageants now. Hosting a pageant is so much fun. I’d love to host Dancing with the Stars.”

It was Alexis’ first trip to Miami, but she reportedly hit the town like a native, dining at the Forge and Meat Market, and visiting the club LIV. Read More Housewives……

In case you weren’t already convinced by the epic catfights and breakdowns on the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” living in the posh California community doesn’t mean life is perfect.

Cast member Alexis Bellino has revealed she’s still struggling with an eating disorder that first began when she was 12 years old.

“I try not to let my weight consume me, but an eating disorder is a lifetime disease,” she told Life & Style.

The reality star said she “just didn’t want to eat” while watching her parents go through a divorce as she entered her teen years.

“Looking back, I think it was my way of controlling something at a time when everything else in my life was out of my control,” Bellino said.

But it wasn’t until another six years passed that the leggy blond, feeling “so heavy,” began purging.

The bulimia continued through the rise and fall of her first marriage before she began seeking help in 2002.

Three years later, she married Jim Bellino, who “finally got me to stop counting calories,” she said.

“He loves my body,” she told the magazine. “In fact, he says he likes me about 5 pounds heavier.”

Bellino said she now weighs between 118 and 122 pounds, but regularly eats less than 900 calories a day and remains fixated on the scale.

“It’s not like I’m healed,” she explained. “This haunts me.”

And while she believes eating disorders “cannot be cured,” they don’t “have to be practiced.”

“My goal is to reach other women,” Bellino explained, “and let them know that they can conquer it.”
