'OC Housewife' RIPS Tabloid

I'm NOT Going Broke!

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.

This was a fame whore so desperate to get on the show she (allegedly) bought a house from Jenna Keogh, a car from Simon Barney and started working out with Gretchen. PLUS, didn't she admit at the reunion show "they were paying cash" for the new house after short selling their current house, which both Vicki and that skank Tamara pointed out could only be done with several possibly ethically questionable moves. I believe InTouch. BRING BACK JEANA!!

In order to be considered for a Short Sale, you have to show the lender that you cannot afford to continue making your mortgage payments.

So, if the Bellinos have lots of money, they must have committed fraud by understating their assets.

Ugh. This piece of trash again? Someone on here posted that she's in her early 30s... noooo wayyy. She looks MUCH older and it's a shame, I wonder what she looked like before the plastic surgery & injections. She's so fake and ridiculously insecure. She wants people to think her and her schlubby fat troll husband have a perfect life & marriage, but in reality they're the 2 most vapid white trash wannabes who can't admit they're not as rich as they wish they were. Good luck with your lawsuit, lmao.

Alexis is an old dried up hag and her husband Jim is a fat ugly pimp.
