'OC Housewife' RIPS Tabloid

I'm NOT Going Broke!

8/21/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alexis Bellino from "Real Housewives of Orange County" is out for justice -- threatening a legal FIRESTORM ... after a tabloid rag claimed she was going broke.

It's all over an issue of In Touch Weekly that came out earlier this month -- the cover of which shows a picture of Alexis, over the caption "Bankrupt!" ... but it gets worse.

Inside the magazine, the article reads, "Bankrupt! Evicted! Foreclosed! Housewives Are Going Broke" -- continuing, "After selling off her home at a fraction of its cost to avoid foreclosure, Alexis Bellino still refuses to admit she and her husband ... have money troubles."

But Alexis claims it's all BS -- and her lawyer fired off a nasty cease and desist letter on Thursday, demanding In Touch retract its "patent, malicious, and libelous comments."

According to the letter, Alexis is "in great financial health" -- and if In Touch doesn't retract its comments ... she'll sue. So far, no word back from In Touch.

A lot of them are just showing off how much money they can spend just to look good so this doesn't surprise me.

Leader of the ignorant masses    

Funny, as soon as i see "Real Housewives" in any article i automatically stop reading. I wonder if this happens to anyone else. Amusingly i stopped to comment on this article but i did not stop to actually read a word of it.

This bi.tch is such a fake and a liar. Of course she's going to deny that they're in financial trouble. Didn't she see the legal do*****ents posted online that showed her husband filed bankruptcy on his business? Or that he's been prosecuted by the feds in the past for shady business deals? It's time to shut down the Housewives franchise for good.

Alexis' husband is the biggest scam artist in California. Wonder what she's going to do when the feds come after him for his little sneaky trick with his home? He transferred ownership of his home to a shell company he created, then filed bankruptcy, thereby, protecting the house so they didnt have to give it up for the bankruptcy.
And sorry, Alexis, people that are in GOOD financial shape don't have to resort to scams like that.
AND, Hopefully your illegal trickery is brought to light during your lawsuit.

I wonder what the lawyer thought he meant when he wrote "tortuous inference" you suppose he was *trying* to say "tortious interference"....?

She was talking about her house going into foreclosure on the show! Of course her greasy fat husband was buying $20,000 in watches on the same episode. How can she deny she has money problems if she said they were foreclosing on the SHOW? Oh and STOP getting plastic surgery. You are in your early 30's and already looking freaky.

Must be some truth to the "rumor". Alexis, have you ever heard that "Thou doth protest too much"? Me thinks you do.

Here they go again! People agreeing to be in the public view and on reality shows yet want to sue when a magazine reports stories. This is what Lindsay Lohan does because LL is broke and hasn't had a "real" career in 10 years.

Alexis Bellino, you're going broke, SUE ME!
