Alexis shares her disappointment about Peggy and Tamra's comments.

on Apr 17, 2011

I must start this week's blog by saying this: I do not make any money or commission off of any surgery or referral of Dr. Niccole and Cosmeticare. My involvement with Cosmeticare is simply to do seminars and events to promote healthy living. I have a background in health and fitness, so I know that to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It takes hard work and dedication, and fixing problems within you as well as outside of you. So with that said, I stand by the fact that Dr. Niccole is the absolute best plastic surgeon in all of Orange County, and I know that one guaranteed way to receive the finest results possible is to go to Cosmeticare and see Dr. Niccole.

Tamra's new home is cute! It seems homey and comfortable and her. Being a parent, I can understand why Simon would be upset that he found out Tamra was in Spain from Peggy. However, I do not know the specific circumstances between Tamra and Simon, so there is no reason for me to make assumptions.

I found it interesting and very telling that Vicki was going to her 30th year reunion alone! Jim and I spend so much time keeping our friendship alive so that we want to go places together. I cannot imagine going to a reunion without him. I'd feel lonely and wish he were there the entire time. It's definitely becoming visible that Donn and Vicki had grown in different directions by this point.

When Vicki states that she hears our home was in foreclosure, I was thinking, "Hmm, why didn't she pick up the phone and call me to find out what was going on?" Then I remembered who I was dealing with. Do I ever expect her or Tamra to ask me anything before beginning gossip in the rumor mill? Let me explain it this way, my husband and I paid for our home at the top of the market. Much like many other Americans, our home will never see the day where it is worth that value again. Therefore, Jim and I tried to reach an agreement with the bank to lower the value of the home (i.e. loan modification). Our bank was great to work with, and although we sold our home instead of modifying it, we definitely lost a lot of money. I don't owe anyone an explanation, we are all living in the same recession. The fact that Tamra finds humor in the possibility that my home could have gone into foreclosure, after her home was short sold last year, simply reminds me that we all need to pray for her. I think it's sad that she finds joy in other people's misery.
