I’m not sure if one would accuse any of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” (or any other city) of being amazing parents, but Alexis Bellino might have taken the cake. At a 4th of July party, Alexis and her husband, Jim, left a stroller containing their two toddlers unattended while they were “doing something” and it rolled into the pool. Toddlers and all. Security guards say that the lifeguard pulled out the stroller, which still contained one child and Alexis’ husband dove in to save the other kid. Both tots were magically and thankfully fine. Afterward, Jim claimed, “There was no lifeguard needed or involved,” as if that changes anything at all. [TMZ]
Seriously, you guys have to stop laughing. Those kids are stuck with those parents forever! And judging by this kind of parenting, forever might be relative. We rounded up a few of the worst celebrity parents — maybe their kids can start a support group? Keep reading »

I felt pretty bad for Lynne Curtin and her family while watching last night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” When the doorbell rang, daughter Alexa opened the door—and was handed an eviction notice. (Things not to say on TV #436, Raquel: “Is this for real? Or am I dreaming because I’m so f**king hungover?”) When the daughters called Lynne to tell her what was happening, you could tell she was truly shocked and pissed at her husband who’d been taking care of the bills. Apparently, while they were up on their rent, he didn’t have the money to pay the $10K security deposit for the house. When Lynne confronted him, he explained that it wasn’t that he lied to her—he said he was in denial about the situation. Who knows if the two will make up?
But what’s so shocking is just how freely this family has spent money in their two seasons on the show.
