All We Can Do Is Pray

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

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.

Next when Vicki claims my husband doesn't have a job, it sounds like bitterness to me. The fact that Jim could be retired, or that he only has to work four hours a day if he prefers, and Vicki works twenty hours a day, hmm, a little angry?

Gretchen pulling out the scale makes it look as though Gretchen thinks Slade is overweight, however, I know Gretchen very well, and I know that her only complaint is that he supposedly walks around saying he's fat, but then he'll order pasta for dinner. Gretchen is madly in love with Slade and would love him fat, skinny, bald or furry!

When Gretchen and Slade go to dinner with Micah and Peggy, and Peggy makes the comment that I probably copied her daytime wedding ring, it is confusing to me. Since I didn't even know Peggy when Jim gave me my daytime ring, how could I copy her? The thought of me copying anything Peggy does is absurd. There is nothing, zero, zilch, nada that I would ever want related to Peggy. We are completely different people, and she is not the friend I had a year ago. This is proven when she goes to lunch with Tamra, and Peggy says she thinks I was overreacting about the mace joke. The day before her lunch with Tamra, Peggy came over to my house to discuss the mace joke and at that time Peggy agreed with me that she thought that Tamra shouldn't have done that. However, she then meets up with Tamra and says that I overreacted? Which is it? Pick a lane. The lunch ends with Tamra calling Jim a douche bag, and they both laugh at it. What's new? Get some new material if you want to be funny. Is being a faithful and amazing husband and an exceptional father the definition of a douche bag?

While watching Vicki and Donn at dinner, it is evident that there is no way to repair their marriage. I felt the tension the entire time I was watching. Talking about where they see their lives in ten years, Donn saying there is more to life than work and Vicki saying she wouldn't change anything in her life...it's all sad. I had to chuckle when Vicki didn't remember Donn's age though, because I often forget what anniversary Jim and I are on in our marriage! It's terrible! But Jim always remembers and I always seem to be a year off, or I say it's April 15th when it's actually April 16th. Thank goodness I have a husband who laughs it off and rolls his eyes instead of being sensitive about it!

Finally, we get to the scene where Tamra and I discuss her infamous mace joke! First of all, the fact that she tries to turn it around on me and make this discussion about where I was when Gretchen was calling her an evil bitch shows Tamra's immaturity. It is not my responsibility to get in the middle of their business. Yes, I did try to deflect the attention with Gretchen, and I did tell my group it was time to leave the party, but it's not my job to apologize to Tamra for Gretchen.

My only point about the mace is that Tamra shouldn't do the exact same thing she gets mad about. Tamra throws a fit when Gretchen pulls an evil eye joke at Tamra's house, yet when Tamra does it to Gretchen, Tamra can't understand why it's inappropriate. You can't argue with stupid on that one. It's called common sense, something Tamra seems to lack this season. I can't even comment on the Alexis is so far up Gretchen's a-- comment, because I think we all know by now that I am my own person. That's just another cop out for Tamra. Her only defense is to name call or say mean things about other people. That will never change. Nothing she says shocks me or hurts my feelings anymore. I feel sorry for her and her kids, and I wish she'd consider her children possibly seeing all of this footage one day. All we can do is continue to pray for her and her family, and I definitely will.

My black maxi dress is in production! Yay! I promise you will all have it way before summer. And it will be offered in white soon too. I have several other maxis in the making too, so keep checking Shop Alexis on my website! Go to www.alexis-bellino.com to pre-register for the black maxi or to purchase any other Alexis items!

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
