How Much Money Did ‘RHOC’ Alexis Bellino Get From Her Divorce?
Don’t weep for the divorced housewives on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Because most are getting some pretty outrageous alimony payments.
For example, the monthly spousal support Alexis Bellino will receive from her soon-to-be ex Jim would be a fortune to most people. Alexis was known on RHOC for being a little too flashy with her cash. Sometimes it annoyed the other women and eventually, Alexis left the show.
Fast forward a few years and the Bellinos are getting divorced. Jim filed for divorce in June 2018 after 13 years of marriage. Other women from the Real Housewives franchise received a pretty sweet payout from their ex-husbands. So what did Bellino end up receiving? Especially since she often talked about how wealthy she was on the show?
This is what she gets in child support
The couple has three children. They have a 12-year-old son, James, and 10-year-old twin girls, Melania and Mackenna. All three kids are actively involved in sports, theater and even the culinary arts. Custody of the kids is split 50/50 between the parents. But Alexis receives $6,000 a month or $2,000 for each child, according to The Blast.
Alexis revealed to People that the couple is still learning how to manage childcare. “Right now we eat on paper plates and just survive. Jim and I are juggling the kids every two days in our main home so that the kids don’t feel this transition so much. So when it’s my two days to have the kids then I stay here. And vice Versa. Life is in complete chaos for Jim and I,”
She receives this in monthly spousal support
Alexis receives $10,000 a month in spousal support, which kicked in on August 1. And while $10,000 a month sounds like a ton of money for most people, it pales in comparison to what other Real Housewives have received. For instance, Shannon Beador from RHOC locked in a $22,500 monthly settlement from her ex-husband David. That’s about $270,000 annually!
Camille Grammer from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills scored $30 million from actor Kelsey Grammer and Yolanda Hadid from the same franchise received $3.6 million.
But wait, there’s more

My best friend thinks I need to document my life right now. My life truly is a range of emotions that I have never experienced. I am always exhausted, never hungry, happy one minute, sad the next, excited the next, devastated the next, numb always, and then repeat. I don’t know who else has been through this, but I try to be strong every minute and that isn’t the REAL. I’m broken. I’m sad. Sometimes I zone off like in this video. I don’t think anyone can go through a divorce and not feel all of the above emotions. All I know is that God is with me through this. HE is getting me through this. I will get through this storm, this season, this extremely painful time, and I will be stronger on the other side. It’s so difficult going through the rain to get to the rainbow. (At least my bestie knows how to make laugh when I’m about to cry…) #latenight #thereal
Just for kicks, Alexis also receives a lump sum of $250,000 “upon the signing of the Judgement by both parties,” according to People. Plus of course, the fashionista gets to retain all of her “handbags and purses.” Jim keeps two of the couple’s homes worth $7 million, plus he has ownership of the SkyZone business the couple opened together.
After Jim filed, Alexis admitted she was sad and depressed. Her friend filmed her during a night when she and her friends were having a “girls’ night” and Alexis seems clearly distraught.
“My best friend thinks I need to document my life right now,” she posted on Instagram. “My life truly is a range of emotions that I have never experienced. I am always exhausted, never hungry, happy one minute, sad the next, excited the next, devastated the next, numb always, and then repeat. I don’t know who else has been through this, but I try to be strong every minute and that isn’t the REAL.”
