RHOC: Vicki Gunvalson Accuses John Janssen of “Love Bombing” Alexis Bellino, as Tamra Judge “Feel[s] Bad” for Shannon Despite Recent Falling Out

Vicki Gunvalson accused John Janssen of “love bombing” Alexis Bellino. Even Tamra Judge – who recently declared fealty to Alexis amid her rumored return to Real Housewives of Orange County – is beginning to feel sorry for Shannon Beador despite their falling out.

According to alum Kelly Dodd, John shelled out $12,000 for a ‘promise’ ring to his new girlfriend. Kelly also claimed he “never” did this for Shannon.

“It’s called ‘love bombing,'” said Vicki of Alexis and John’s new romance in a comment shared by @therealhousewiveszone on Instagram. “That’s not love!”

On Tamra’s Two Ts in a Pod podcast, via Reality Tea, Tamra claimed she “just really feel[s] bad for Shannon.” She said her reaction to a recent make-out video of the new couple was “oh no.”

Tamra expressed that she would be hurt if she and husband Eddie split up and Alexis started dating him. Tamra’s co-host Teddi Mellencamp called Alexis and John’s actions “mean-spirited.”

“I just wish these pictures would not surface,” said Tamra. “[It’s] their business. But I am kind of feeling really bad for Shannon … if Eddie and I split up and this was Alexis and him, or him and [Teddi] … Having to see it, it’s difficult.”

Tamra previously shared that she fell out with Shannon after Tamra commented on Alexis’ Instagram post about not “believ[ing] rumors” – when Alexis suggested that the romance was fake news.

According to Tamra, Shannon interpreted this as a sign of endorsement for Alexis.

“It’s because I liked one of [Alexis’] pictures,” said Tamra at the time. “[Shannon] got mad at me because … I put clapping hands under ‘Don’t believe rumors’ … [In that moment] I did not think, for one second, [Alexis and John] were dating.”
