PHOTOS: RHOC's Alexis Bellino Goes Public With Shannon's Ex John Janssen, Kissing Him on Boat as He's Slammed as "Housewife Hopper" and Tamra 'Likes' Post

Alexis Bellino and John Janssen are official.

Following weeks of rumors, which the Real Housewives of Orange County alum, 46, seemingly denied on a number of occasions, she and the former boyfriend of Shannon Beador, 59, went public with their romance while enjoying a boat ride with friends.

In a video posted to social media on Sunday, December 17, and reshared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram, Alexis, in an all-black outfit, was seen with her hand on John’s chest as the two of them shared a kiss on his boat.

In a photo shared on Alexis’ page, she was seen standing with a couple of friends at the front of the boat.

“Boat parading a lil different this year,” she wrote in the caption, also including Andy Williams’ rendition of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”

Following the sharing of the post, Alexis and John were met with backlash from fans — and a “like” from RHOC star Tamra Judge, 56.

“Eww lol she’s so proud to grab someone’s ex. Well we all know her worth now,” one person wrote.

“It’s the boat that Shannon and John had great times on,” another stated.

“So what he has a boat, pretty sure Shannon can purchase her own boat if she wanted. Even Shannon’s girls didn’t care for John,” noted a third.

Another person told Alexis to “enjoy the housewife hopper” and someone else targeted Tamra, a former bestie of Shannon.

“Of course [Tamra] would like this picture,” they stated.

Rumors of a romance between Alexis and John first began swirling in November after the couple was seen at The Quiet Woman — a restaurant frequented by Shannon.

Weeks after Alexis and John were first linked, Shannon spoke to E! News about their relationship.

“I’m not going to lie, I’ve been hurt,” Shannon admitted. “I’ve been hurt a lot in the last couple of weeks because, No. 1, John said that he didn’t want to be in the public eye, and he’s thrust himself more into the public eye at this point. So, I’m quite confused about that.”

“I don’t know how to process it,” she added. “How many Orange County Housewives have there been? Is that your dating pool?”

No word yet on when The Real Housewives of Orange County will go into production on its upcoming 18th season. However, Alexis is allegedly in talks for a return.
