REPORT: Shannon Beador’s Ex John Janssen and Alexis Bellino Are Officially Dating, as Alexis Signs Contract to Join Season 18 of RHOC, Plus Vicki Gunvalson Reacts

If Bravo is pushing Shannon Beador over the edge, they’ll be thrilled with this next report: John Janssen is officially dating Alexis Bellino – who just signed a season 18 contract for Real Housewives of Orange County.

Perhaps John – who dated Shannon for several years and allegedly ‘lit up’ when cameras came around – caught a whiff of Alexis’ future orange and took matters into his own hands. A love triangle, as Bravo fans know, is the quickest way to airtime.

Sources close to John told AllAboutTRH that he and Alexis are officially dating. Though the courtship is new, both parties are “very happy” with the direction it’s heading.

“Alexis got out of a relationship not very long ago and John has been done with Shannon so they are both in the same place and have a lot in common along with mutual friends,” said an insider.

Per the outlet, this allegedly sparked the fallout between Shannon and Tamra Judge, who befriended the alum as she prepares to return to RHOC, which begins filming in a couple of weeks.

Fan account B**chofBravo on Instagram reported that Alexis’s return is official: “Alexis delivers the final deathblow to Shannon Beador as she signs contracts for next season driving the last nail into spiraling alcoholic’s coffin.” The account also asked a poll question, “Is Bravo pushing Shannon over the edge?”

John himself answered ‘yes.’

Shannon’s friend Vicki Gunvalson shared her support – and anger – on hearing the news.

Reacting to the report that Alexis and John are ‘very happy’ in their early romance, Vicki tweeted: “I AM DISGUSTED & will NOT be holding my tongue. Stay tuned for my thoughts soon.”
