Alexis Bellino Says Co-Parenting With Ex-Husband Jim Bellino Is A ‘Work In Progress’ 3 Years After Split!

Alexis Bellino is sharing an update on how she and her ex-husband Jim Bellino are co-parenting their three children three years after their split.

“We still have our ups and downs,” the Real Housewives of Orange County alum told Us Weekly. “One thing that we are 100 percent about is how much we love our kids, and we want it to be the best for them and put them first. So that works out.”

The former Bravo reality star clarified that co-parenting with the 59-year-old businessman can be “hard” since their “personalities are a little bit more clashy.”

Alexis explained, “It should be getting easier, and it does each day. We just try to respect each other and put our kids first. We definitely have our days, like if there’s something that happens that puts my mama bear up and then I get upset. Or if we don’t see eye-to-eye on something in regard to parenting, it definitely throws a curve ball … for communication.”

While the former couple isn’t “hanging out” or “best friends by any means,” Alexis noted that they do attend their kids’ sporting events together — along with her fiancé, Andy Bohn.

The former RHOC star admitted that Jim “did say congratulations” but will “probably not” be invited to the wedding. He and Bohn “actually” get along, Alexis told the publication.

“You can’t fight with Andy,” Alexis told Us Weekly. “He doesn’t have an enemy, and he’s the most easygoing, kindhearted person you’ve ever met. He would never allow there to be any kind of tension or anything, so it works out good.”

Alexis advised other co-parenting couples to “take the high road always” in these situations, adding that “Emotions are high because, obviously, you were married to that person for a reason. A lot of the feelings don’t just disappear and … there are just a lot of emotions that you can’t even explain. And then throw in there new partners and new children brought into the mix, and it just makes it kind of difficult. You just keep your head up.”

She called her children “the light at the end of the tunnel” since the first few years of co-parenting can be “hell on earth.”

Alexis and Jim Bellino announced their separation in June 2018 after 13 years of marriage. A few months later the two were officially divorced. They are parents to three kids, James (14) and twin daughters Melania and Mackenna (13).
