'The Real Housewives Of Orange County': Alexis' 'Totally Necessary' Nose Job (VIDEO)

Alexis Bellino went under the knife for reconstructive surgery on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on Bravo) for the same reason most stars do: a deviated septum. Only when she came out, something was wrong, and doctors pulled something completely disgusting out of her nasal cavities ... and Bravo's cameras were there to capture it all for their viewing audience.

Bellino admitted that the nose job would also help her with working on-air as a news personality. After all, everyone appreciates seeing someone who's breathing much easier. A smaller and perkier nose is just a fringe benefit. But the best benefit, as noted by Buddy TV, is that her post-surgery look strongly resembled a certain late and lamented King of Pop.

"The Real Housewives of Orange County" airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
