    Remember when being a housewife was considered a bad thing? Well, those days are over. Thanks to Bravo, being a “Real Housewife” now makes you the most lucrative entrepreneur around.

    We have seen Teresa Giudice of New Jersey top the New York Times Best Seller’s list and Bethenny Frankel of New York turn her skinny margarita mix into a multimillion dollar business. And now, “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Alexis Bellino is looking to take over the fashion game with her new line, Alexis Couture.

    And her first stop outside of California to show off her new designs? Miami, of course.

    “I had a couple of opportunities to showcase my line to the beautiful Miami women, so (her husband) Jim and I took a couple extra days for ourselves to see what you all do in Miami," she told Niteside. 

    And while staying at the ultra chic National Hotel, dinning at The Forge and dancing the night away at WALL, she was sure to tell us that all ladies of the 305 can rock her designs.

    “Every and any woman can rock Alexis Couture/Casual and feel girly, sexy and like a million bucks. I have a couple of tight dresses, but I also have flowy dresses or elastic waisted tunics. There is something for everyone,“ she said.

    And don’t just think she is putting her name on the tag: she says she is very involved in every last stitch.

    “I play a major role in designing these dresses. I take my favorite aspects of different styles I've worn or seen before and create what I think every woman wants," she said.
