What an Incestuous Little Group This Is
Posted by tinselkitty on May 2, 2011
Slade Smiley has to be having a great day, today. He’s finally moved from only member to senior member of the official OC Housewife Hopper club with the news that Jim Bellino has, in fact, hit it and quit it with one Peggy Tanous.
From Starcasm –
On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live Andy Cohen thought the biggest news bombshell that would drop on the show was the fact that Osama Bin Laden had been killed. But, midway through the show guest Alexis Bellino from The Real Housewives of Orange County dropped what many OC fans would consider at least a similarly sized bomb: her husband Jim Bellino used to date new cast member Peggy Tanous!
This was a story we were already working on, but since Alexis actually confirmed it on the show I felt like we show go ahead and run with it. We have a source that was in the same circle of friends as Jim Bellino and Peggy Tyler (Peggy Tanous’ modeling name – see more on that here and here) who says they began dating in 1996 and continued through 1997 before Jim dumped her.
So that means Slade Smiley isn’t the only member of the Multi-OC Club! This sheds a whole new light on the tensions developing between Alexis and Peggy this season!
We’re working on getting more info – and if we do we’ll either update this post or add a new post and add a link below. (If you know anything more about Jim and Peggy’s time together feel free to drop us a line at starcasmtips (at) yahoo.com!
(Just in case you were wondering, YES the top picture was Photoshopped. It is a photo of Jim Bellino from 2010 and Peggy Tanous as Peggy Tyler when she modeled for Bench Warmer pin-up trading cards in 2002.)
Tamra and Vicki should be taking this very seriously and doing all they can to make sure Jim and Alexis live happily ever after. If they don’t, that puts Jim back on the market. Tamra might be with Eddie right now but they have yet to seal the deal by getting hitched. And we all know Vicki’s chomping at the bit to get her freedom pants out of storage. If Jim is making the rounds, these two will be the next in his crosshairs. Assuming Gretchen and Slade stay together, of course. Holy crap, I just gave Bravo season 7! Jim and Slade hook up with Vicki and Tamra, possibly swapping out about halfway through! Ratings gold, my friends. Heck, that might even be ratings platinum.
