alexis-bellino-general-hospital-real-housewives-of-orange-county-abc.jpgAlexis Bellino gets plenty of flak from her “Real Housewives of Orange County” co-stars about her correspondent gig for Fox 5 San Diego, but she must be pretty believable as a pro to the folks at ABC. Alexis makes her acting debut Wednesday (May 9) on “General Hospital” playing a news anchor.

“I can’t say the story line,” Alexis tells the New York Daily News. “But the news I’m going to give is pretty shocking. So it was interesting to come on here for the first time and be able to deliver that kind of news.”  

But apparently it wasn’t the reality star’s hosting job that landed her the spot on the soap opera set in the fictional city of Port Charles, N.Y.

“The head producer told me it was just because I was good looking,” she says.

Check out a clip below of Alexis’ Fox 5 gig, which was edited on “Real Housewives” to make the 35-year-old reality star look a bit more bumbling than she really was. And tune into ABC Wednesday to see “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star reveal some shocking news on “General Hospital.”

How do you think Alexis will do on the soap?
