“I’m not a good drunk. That’s for sure,” stated the reality television star. 

She also stated that she went through many emotions while intoxicated. 

“I cried, I yelled, I laughed. I did it all,” said Judge.

Tamra Judge Spoke Positively About Alexis Bellino

Alexis Bellino, who left  RHOC after season 8, filmed for the show’s 18th season. As fans are aware, Bellino is currently in a relationship with Shannon Beador’s ex-boyfriend, John Janssen. Janssen and Beador ended their relationship in late 2022. During a January 2024 episode of “Two Ts In A Pod,” alongside RHOC star Emily Simpson, Judge, who previously had issues with Bellino, stated she was pleased she re-joined the cast. 

Judge also denied rumors that Bellino was asked to return to the Bravo franchise because of her relationship with Janssen. 

“She was being asked back before this John stuff was even – before she even met John,” said Judge. 

Judge also stated that Bellino was hesitant to come back to the series as she would have to film with Beador. Judge, who has been feuding with Beador, stated she admired Bellino for not wanting to hurt her. 

“I had a conversation with [Bellino]. And she said, ‘Listen, I don’t know if I want to sign because I don’t want to kick Shannon when she’s down.’ Right when she said that to me, I’m like, ‘You know what, you’re a cool chick,’” said Judge.

“At some point, it’s not about Shannon. Of course, I don’t want Shannon to hurt. I wish her nothing but the best. But I’m focused on Alexis and I,” said Janssen. 

Bellino also shared that she believes she and Janssen will eventually get engaged. Janssen seemed to agree with his girlfriend of six months. 

“I cannot picture my life without her,” said Janssen.

During a September 2022 episode of the “Behind the Velvet Rope” podcast, Bellino spoke about leaving RHOC. She stated that she attempted to quit the series following RHOC season 7. According to the mother of three, Bravo “begg[ed] [her] back.” She stated that she eventually agreed to film RHOC season 8 after “a lot of soul-searching.” She also noted that Bravo did not renew her contract after the show’s 8th season. 

“Season 8, I thought was a really great season. I’m like, ‘Okay, I can do this again.’ So I was ready to stay. And then they let me go,” said Bellino with a laugh. “So it was like, quit, I’m back, and then I’m fired.”
