Encore Beach Club
Monday, June 30, 2014 | 7:52 a.m.
Blonde bombshell Alexis Bellino of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” fame partied with husband Jim Bellino and her gal pals Saturday at Andrea’s and the adjoining Encore Beach Club and Surrender.
The stay-at-home Christian mother showed off her bikini body in a lace-embellished gray-and-pink Beach Bunny two-piece during the daytime celebration that she planned for her buxom buddy Jackie Melby’s birthday at Encore Beach Club.
Overlooking the pool party from a second-level luxury cabana, the gal pals moved to the sounds of DJ Snake (“Turn Down for What”) and enjoyed Dom Perignon and Patron margaritas (they’re so fancy).
The birthday-celebration posse regrouped for dinner at Andrea’s, and the party of 12 enjoyed cocktails and shared plates by executive chef Joseph Elevado.
“A birthday girl must eat! LOL! Only at the best restaurant @andreasencore,” Bellino tweeted about her bestie, who wore a mini tiara to dinner at the Asian hotspot. The six ladies in the group posed for photographs together before heading to next-door Surrender for rapper and DJ Lil Jon’s set.
Veuve Clicquot flowed, and the group danced the night away.
Bellino fans may soon see the reality-TV star’s return to television. On June 12, she posted on Instagram a photograph of herself being filmed with the caption, “Back to work! Can’t wait to share this project with all of you. It airs in August! Details soon to come. #hmmmmmmm #mysteryjob.”
Thanks to Aaron Garcia for his photo gallery at Andrea’s and Surrender.
