Before she became one of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis Bellino was Alexis Barry and her 2004 divorce from Jeffrey Barry could make a TV show on its own.
Alexis accused Jeffrey of being "bipolar," drinking "excessively," and threatening to hurt her. She even got a Temporary Restraining Order against him.

Alexis filed for divorce on November 10, 2003, five weeks after she moved out on Jeffrey, which came after just 15 months of marriage. With no kids and no real estate to fight over, the split should have been simple.
But then came Alexis' claim of harrassment. She said Jeffrey hacked into her computer and impersonated her in emails sent to her new boyfriend....who was also married, by the way.
Jeffrey denied he ever threatened Alexis or impersonated her on the Internet. He did proudly admit, however, that he'd called Alexis a "$2 whore!" It was an opinion that was "likely not to change," he told the court.
The Barry divorce was finalized June 12, 2004. She later married wealthy businessman Jim Bellino and is living the good life with him in Newport Beach, CA.
