Alexis discusses her dress line and addresses Tamra's comments.

This episode we see me starting Alexis Couture dress line. I love the fact that Tamra says, "I don't think you just wake up one day and say 'Oh, I want to be a fashion designer.'" I have one thing to say to that, yes you do! That's called following your dreams. I believe any of us can do anything we put our minds to! Don't ever let the negativity of one person keep you from your dreams and your goals. I have a vision, and I promise you one thing, Alexis Couture is already a lot bigger than a Tamra body shot. Even if it wasn't, I'm doing something I love and something to make women feel good about themselves. Then Tamra continues to insult my ambition by saying, "Alexis is designing a dress line for moms like her, as long as you are anorexic with big boobs." First, I feel sad that Tamra would be so insensitive to comment on an eating disorder such as anorexia, it is a serious disease. Secondly, I made sure to include plenty of dresses in my line that women of all body types could wear.

Watching the tutu shopping day with my girls makes me realize that I have the most amazing little girls in the world! I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was so stressful, I felt overwhelmed. But now, looking back, I know I need to lighten up. Who cares if they are crawling in the clothing racks! Who cares if they are being too loud! I am just so thankful that I have Mel and Mack. My life would be empty and incomplete without them (and so boring)!

Thank you so much for your unbelievable response to Alexis Couture and the maxi dresses! I am completely shocked and excited at the same time! All of the dresses you see me wearing will be available. We are only days away from launching. Please go to to preregister for either maxi (be sure to specify color and size). You can also follow me on Facebook at "Alexis Bellino Verified Profile" and on Twitter @alexisbellino! Love you all and God bless!
