There may be something brewing between “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Alexis Bellino and John Janssen – who previously dated Shannon Beador for four years.
“Alexis and John have so much in common that it’s easy to see why they are quickly becoming friends,” Bellino’s publicist, Spencer Lubitz, exclusively tells Page Six.
The rep adds that Bellino and Janssen “happened to be at The Quiet Woman at the same time when they initially met and a friendship was born.”
“Orange County is a small place so it’s not surprising they would cross paths,” he teases.
The “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum and Janssen first sparked romance rumors when they were photographed sitting next to each other with Janssen’s arm around her at a group dinner on Sunday.
The group grabbed a bite to eat at the Quiet Woman, a restaurant in Orange County, Calif., where several of the “RHOC” ladies – including Beador – have frequented over the years.
Shortly after the group photo began circulating on Bravo fan accounts, Beador, 59, took to her own social media to seemingly laugh off the hangout.
“A good laugh heals a lot of hurts. 🖤,” she captioned a series of solo shots of her smiling and laughing on Monday.
Beador’s reps didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment and Janssen declined to comment.
Beador and Janssen dated for four years before he broke up with her shortly after filming for Season 17 of “RHOC” wrapped in November 2022.
However, the two continued their friendship over the last year, and he was even photographed comforting her after she was arrested for DUI and hit-and-run in September, but she denied that they were “touching pink parts” to Page Six three months prior.
In addition to Beador and Janssen having a complicated history, Beador and Bellino, 46, also have had their troubles in the past from each starring on “RHOC.”
Beador and Bellino never overlapped on “RHOC,” but they still feuded after Bellino’s ex-husband Jim Bellino filed a $1 million defamation lawsuit against Beador and fellow “RHOC” star Tamra Judge in 2018.
Bellino was adamant that she “was not involved” in the lawsuit, but that didn’t seem to affect Beador’s feelings towards her.

Beador was allegedly overheard “bitching” about Alexis while they just happened to be eating at the same eatery shortly before Beador’s arrest.
“When my girlfriends and I arrived for a fun night out together, it was soon brought to my attention that Shannon was also at the same restaurant,” Bellino told TMZ in September.
“Shannon and I did not interact that night, but it greatly saddens me to learn that she may harbor negative feelings or resentment toward me.”
Bellino has been single ever since she called off her engagement to ex-fiancé Andrew “Drew” Bohn in September.
“I felt it was better if we just take different paths for now and he agreed,” she exclusively told Page Six earlier this month. “I just know it was the best decision for us.”
