Shannon Beador ‘doing nicely’ amid John Janssen, Alexis Bellino romance

Shannon Beador is A-OK after news broke that her ex-boyfriend John Janssen is dating Alexis Bellino, according to her close friend Jeff Lewis.

“I think she’s doing great. And I’m privy to all the personal information, and I think she’s doing really, really well,” the “Hollywood Houselift” star told Page Six exclusively Wednesday at the Season 2 premiere of his Freevee show.

Lewis, 53, admitted he was initially “very concerned” that Janssen and Bellino’s romance would “affect” Beador, 59, “very deeply.”

“I mean, thank God she’s done a lot of work over the last couple months on herself,” he shared. “I think she’s healthier than I’ve ever seen her. I’ve never seen her look so good, but that’s taking care of herself, sleeping, not drinking, eating well, exercising, all of that — mental health, physical health.”

The interior designer even teased that Beador is “ready for another season” of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” as casting for the upcoming 18th installment gets underway.

“She’s a lot stronger than everyone thinks. She’s amazing,” he raved.

Lewis did not have such nice things to say about Janssen, however.

“I don’t like how he’s handled the breakup, and … I just think it’s a little classless –– him now dating another ‘Housewife.’ I was actually kind of surprised by that,” he told us.

The SiriusXM host acknowledged that Janssen “was always very nice” to him so it is “hard” for him to “dislike” the businessman, though he noted, “I think you can like someone and not like their behavior.”

Beador’s close friend Vicki Gunvalson seemed to agree with Lewis, as she told Page Six she finds it “weird” that Bellino, 46, and Janssen, 61, are an item.

“[Beador is] good. She’s gonna be better off. He’s not good for her. Too much drinking all night long. He needs to go where he needs to go, and she needs to go where she needs to go,” the “RHOC” alum said at Wednesday’s event.

Gunvalson, 61, previously slammed Bellino and Janssen for being “ridiculous and thirsty” after Page Six confirmed earlier this week that the duo are dating but “not boyfriend and girlfriend” yet.

An insider explained to us Tuesday that Bellino and Janssen are “still getting to know each other” and “enjoying” doing so.

Fans initially began to speculate that the two were seeing each other when a photo surfaced of them cozying up last month. Bellino later told Page Six that Janssen was just a “new friend.”

Beador, for her part, has not publicly addressed the budding relationship, although a source previously told us that she was “absolutely devastated” to hear Janssen had been pursuing Bellino.

“Shannon wasn’t even on the show with Alexis and has been nothing but kind to her,” our insider said. “Alexis is obviously desperate to get back on the show and is using Shannon to do it.”

Despite having never starred on “RHOC” together, Beador and Bellino have a complicated history, as the latter’s ex-husband, Jim Bellino, sued the former for defamation in 2018.

Janssen –– who dumped Beador right after she finished filming Season 17 of “RHOC” last year –– has also kept quiet about his new gal pal.
