Looks like another housewife almost landed in the poor house.

Real Housewives of Orange County‘ cast member Alexis Bellino and her husband Jim reportedly defaulted on their $4.5 million home loan, according to The Orange County Register.

The Bellinos failed to pay $83,856.92 on the multi-million dollar loan for their Newport Beach home and faced the threat of foreclosure after missing mortgage payments from the beginning of the year through April.

However, the couple has averted a financial fiasco for now and won’t face the same debt drama as ‘Jersey’ girl Teresa Giudice.

The Bellinos were able to make a modification to their loan, which ballooned to $4.62 million after penalties and fees accrued, therefore, the trustee sale scheduled for Aug. 25th to auction off their home has been canceled and the family is able to keep their posh pad, according to the paper.

Boy, it ain’t easy keeping up with the Jones, especially on reality TV.
