Alexis Bellino is so close with her mama, she calls her her "best friend." But it wasn't until The Real Housewives of Orange County alum sat down for a sushi dinner with her mother that she discovered this secret habit.
In an Instagram video taken at the restaurant, Alexis caught her mother pulling a pair of lacquered chopsticks out of her purse. Through a fit of laughter, Alexis asked, "Mama, what are you doing?" Her mom responded innocently, "Getting my chopsticks out! I don't want those wooden things [the restaurant supplies]; I want these!" She added, "It's a style."
Take a look at Mama's very own "beautiful" chopsticks:
"You are so funny and cute; I love you," Alexis laughed. She also panned in on their order, and hinted that her new boyfriend, Drew Bohn, might get some leftovers. Showing a sushi roll covered in meat, Alexis said, "Oh, look, there's some beef on top of this sushi, Drew. That's all for you, buddy."
In her caption, the Orange County mother jotted a new life motto: "Chop sticks. Happiness. Love. That’s all we need in life."
