When RHOC met the Mob Wives.

Alexis Bellino of the Real Housewives of Orange County
Alexis Bellino got a real taste of New York recently. "I just love the hustle and bustle, the shopping, the way people dress, the people and… the food! I swear I think I gain 5 pounds every time I go there!" the Real Housewives of Orange County star writes on her blog. "I had to stop for a piece of Joe's pizza, OF COURSE! THE best pizza in the world! I kept wanting to stop eating because my tummy was full but I couldn't stop!!"

Naturally, walking the streets of Manhattan also means bumping into a few celebrities. After being interviewed by Steve Sturniolo for Sirius Radio, Alexis stumbled upon an unlikely trio. "This was exciting: Coming out of the studio, I met David Arquette, Sammy and Deana from Jersey Shore!! What a blast!" she says.

And the reality run-ins didn't end there. After another stop on her press train, Alexis found herself face-to-face with two of New York's tough guys. "I met Mob Wives Drita D'Avanzo and Carla Faccioli! What a hoot! These women are an absolute RIOT! I heard the F-bomb more in that few minutes than my entire life! LOL!" the small-town Missouri native adds. (Err, Alexis, it's Davanzo and Facciolo.)  "Both Drita D'Avanzo and Carla Faccioli are so beautiful! TV doesn't do them justice!" Watch out, Tamra, she may have learned a couple Staten Island pointers.
