Well, this is awkward. Siesta Key‘s Alex Kompothecras and his girlfriend, Alyssa Salerno, are expecting their first child, and the reality star announced the news via Instagram on December 15. But costar Juliette Porter accused Alex, 24, of cheating with her in the comments of a post about the announcement on another Instagram page. Yikes.
“Little princess on the way😍😍,” Alex captioned a photo of himself and Alyssa kissing on a balcony. Over on the Morning Toast show profile, the photo was reposted with the caption, “Plot twist!! #SiestaKey.” In the comments, Juliette, 22, wrote, “Weird how he cheated on her with me several months ago but OK.”
The truth is, Alex and Juliette share a history that could have definitely made the pregnancy announcement a little awkward. Alex’s relationship with Alyssa started after he ended the one he shared with Juliette, and he and Juliette were dating in the show’s first season back in 2017, Us Weekly reported.
In season 2, Juliette caught Alex in bed with two girls and although she took him back, the two appeared to end their relationship. “It’s hard because I trusted him at the time; he was my best friend,” Juliette said on Us Weekly’s “Watch With Us” podcast back in February. “You never really know what other people are gonna pull. I wanted to feel safe. In the long run that didn’t really end up working out.”
But did things really end between them? Juliette certainly makes it sound like they carried on well after Alex and Alyssa got together. People in the comments of Alex’s post were definitely getting ready for the drama that may ensue from the whole situation.
“Oh my gosh!!!!! I bet Juliette is pissed!!!!!!!!!!!!” one person wrote. “He’s been dating her for 5 mins,” another said, before a different fan responded, “Exactly what I was thinking … anyways look how he did Madison and Juliette, he’s a man ho … LOL … he just wants his cake and to [eat] it too.”
Will all of this drama show up on Siesta Key in the near future? Do you think Alyssa and Alex will react to Juliette’s accusations? Stay tuned.
