Peggy and I are an entirely other topic. Where to begin, where to end. It's so exhausting and so sad. I don't feel like our friendship can recover from all that has happened this year. Peggy has changed so much from the moment she came around this group of women. From day one, every time we filmed she constantly found something to be mad at me about, she attacked me, she insinuated things. She never was herself. She acted like she had an ulterior motive. I felt like she was looking for a reason for us to not be friends anymore. Perhaps it's the Tamra/Gretchen thing, like since Peggy was so close to Tamra, she couldn't be friends with me anymore since I'm so close with Gretchen. I don't know, none of it makes sense. I just can't take a four year friendship with someone and kiss it goodbye without being a little upset about it.
After watching this entire season, I think every time I would "one up" Peggy it was me subconsciously mourning the death of our friendship. Maybe some of it was subconscious leftovers of the fact that I didn't find out until a few months before filming that she dated my husband fifteen years ago. She kept that secret from me for four years! It's not even a big deal, who cares if they dated? I dated people in the past too, Jim and I were both married once before. I'm definitely not trying to compete with Peggy, but it is apparent that some of my comments were unlike me and had some hurt behind them. I think all of that combined with the fact that Peggy has acted so differently is what comes across in my comments to Peggy. A perfect example is when Peggy gets upset about the lip comment I made in San Antonio. Are you kidding? Peggy intentionally gets her lips injected, so why would she feel insulted by me stating her lips are bigger than mine? If someone intentionally makes her lips bigger, wouldn't it be a compliment if someone thinks you have big lips? Honestly I didn't even remember saying it when Peggy confronted me, so it's not like I was trying to hurt her feelings. I think Peggy has great lips, and I love my lips, so end of conversation.
Next we see Peggy go over to Jeana. Why would Peggy stick her nose in the middle of Tamra and Jeana's situation? That is exactly how I'd feel every time I'd film with Peggy, like she was looking for camera time, like she was looking for some drama to cause or to be in the middle of. Just like the lip comment, just like at the beginning of Vicki's party when Peggy is running around loud and crazy to everyone claiming we are not to mention Donn's name during the entire party.
I agree with your whole blog!!!! Peggy is crazy!! I see everything the way you see it!! I would be as agitated as you are with the so called "friendship". I think you got duped (by Peggy) into believing that Peggy cared for you. The fact that your friendship is over is obviously hurting you more than it's hurting her so i think that speaks to how little Peggy had invested into the friendship. You don't need friends like that! Its good she's moved on and out of your life!!!
I could not believe you said in your liberal rant... that women can run for president. Are you kidding. I shouted out loud when I heard that. You have said some pretty silly things this year, but that took the cake. You didn't address it in your blog and with good reason. Also, you were mad at Peggy for not telling you for 4 years that she dated your husband, but you don't say that you're mad at your husband for not telling you. I would be upset with both of them.
Wow. I have changed my mind on Peggy. TEAM ALEXIS.
Peggy is trying to pick a fight and a BIG follower. Glad you stuck to your guns. I just wish you hadn't called into WWHL. It would have made you the bigger person
Although I do not agree with your idea of and ideal marriage, I respect you because your marriage is doing so well. Obviously it works for you! I am sorry that Peggy kept trying to start arguments with you. Do you think it might have something to do with her depression? She always looks so stern and sad.
Alexis, My husband and I have been trying to teach our daughter that she needs to skip college and find a man. She talks back to us and we keep telling her - A man will put you in your place and show you that he is in charge and you are his servant. Please, please, please can you tell us the name of your church? We think that atmosphere is a great way to nail this point home and we really hope she never believes she is ever better than a man and we definitely hope she ends this crazy idea of thinking for herself. Thanks in advance!
Love You Alexis, and I think at first you did try to outdo your friend, but I still like you and Grethchen the best and not because you two are the prettiest but you are decent people. You are not fake and mean.
Alexi I surport you,keep your marriage very strong,peggy regrets not having your man,if not why is she wanting him around her,so she can still connect,Keep your man away from peggy pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee.
Love you Alexis don't change, let your husband serve as household. Don't get into the glammer of hollywood. It is not worth it.
If you are so disgusted by all of the drama and girls, I'm assuming you will not return for the next season. Be the Christian you say you are and remove yourself please! Waiting to see your decision will prove yourself to me!
I think that is great that you support Vicki even though you two are not the bestest of friends. That shows a lot that you are the bigger person regardless of differences and someone in a time of need will never forget that! I was not a big fan in the beginning, but having a heart is what people need to have more these days like you do and know when to put differences aside.
Alexis you are not always right. Actions speaks louder than words. I know these are cliches but they are sooooo true. Talk less/Judge less and walk the walk you will win more with your actions versus your words which can sound hypocritical and judgemental on most occasions.
I know Peggy wasn't always right, but you weren't either. Quit bashing her every chance you get. It makes you look really bad. Taking up for Jeana is a big mistake too. The reason she doesn't think Tamra was in an abusive relationship is because she was in one for years and probably still doesn't get it. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Yes, your marriage is your business and I don't blame Jim for staying at home. He clearly didn't enjoy being filmed with this group. If you're back next year I hope you give the other girls a break.
As a viewer I see that you did make a few comments to Peggy that were not appropriate. I love all of you ladies though. Jeana Keogh needs to stay out of Tamara's business and get a life of her own. (I hate nosy people.) I should be on the show with ya'll. I think I could teach you to be beautiful and humble. Every now and then, you act entitled. Sorry but I tell it like it is so I can help you. God Bless!
I like you Alexis; but think you are too defensive about your marriage. Do and be what you want to be and who cares what others think. All of my friends have marriages that are completely different-it is whatever works for them, no apologies necessary.
Alexis, I don't always agree with you, but I certainly support your right to live a more traditional life. However, you have to learn to let things go. Your best bet with someone like Peggy is to let it just roll off your back. Every time you respond (as in tonite's episode of WWHL), you play right into her hands and you make her look calmer and more self-assured. The friendship is done. Move on. Keep it distant but cordial. End of story.
I love you more than anyone else on the show. I respect your husband just the same way that you respect him. No I do not think your clothing line this season was great. But it was a good start and you are a good model. You really talk like there is something else ruling you besides the money. I like the way you stand up for yourself, your girlfriend whom you brought to the show I think is really not a friend she has to many complaints and its only because she is hanging with the caddy girls or mean girls. Do not become one keep reading the bible scriptures and you will know that god does not like gossip. Jesus never practiced it nor should you. With that in mind good luck you have a beautiful family. God Bless
I live in Corona Del Mar so we are practically neighbors. Love you, you are stunning, your taste in clothing is impeccable, gorgeous kids and an AWESOME marriage. I too am against the liberal path we are on and my husband and I enjoy our traditional marriage values. Keep being you....I think you ROCK!!!!!!!!!
I think Jim was smart not to go to the party with you. Why would he want to associate with people who clearly have nothing positive to say about him?
Maybe bravo will post it this time?
NEWS FLASH ALEXIS: A woman running for president does not mean she thinks she can do everything like a man or is what you call "liberal." do you ever recall Sarah Palin saying she was running for the democratic party? As a conservative woman you have offended/insulted me in every possible way. I am successful because God equipped me with the talents and abilities to do so and I never once said to myself 'Oh I can be just like a man and am better than my husband.' Men and women ARE DIFFERENT, no denying that sister but God made us to compliment one another not do the bulk of the work as a women because where inferior. Where my strengths are, are another mans weakness and vise versa. I don't give a rats cockatoo how you do this and that in your marriage. Bottom line - you are not being a loving christian example, it's called humble yourself girlfriend. And a real man is HUMBLE. I would love to know what church you go to that preaches the messages you bring, I would love to write your pastor a letter! I don't believe for one second that God designed marriage the way you say he did. God never designed women to be dominated, less than, not equal to, or second compared to man. Get your scripture verses straight. I am sickened to death by your hypocrtical actions and sayings you say are from 'God.' That's not the Jesus I know. 'There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus' Galations 3:28
I really have a hard time understanding Peggy. She is all over the place and takes everything way to personal with you. As for Jim not showing up to the party, his absents lately just makes everyone wonder is he supportive of you or not? Who cares what he thinks about the woman he should still come for you! Just a thought.
Nice Blog Alexis and I agree. The lip comment was crazy and if she felt sooooo bad about it why didn't she bring it up in the limo or when you two were alone.Weird?!
I think your observations are spot on - thank you for always being above the drama. There are those who will always try to suck you in for their own reasons (Peggy) but you are wise to recognize it for what it is. Love you and Jim. Wish we could see more of the two of you together but totally understand why he wouldn't want to hang out with people who aren't genuinely true blue friends. Much success with your gorgeous dress line.
I think that you add a wonderful spirit to the show. I was so angry when I watched the episode and then it got to where Tamra said that Jeana pushed her. Any sympathy that I had about Jeana talking to the press, as well as reconsidering how the "dog leash" incident happened.
I liked both you AND Peggy, however since Peggy has become closer with Tamra I think it shows she doesn't place much value on character in her friends, so it makes me definitely side more with you. I think Peggy felt she, also, needed to choose which "clique" to align herself with this season and, unfortunately, she chose the wrong one.
I watched WWH and I'm sorry that you weren't able to be heard over her. She was rude to speak over you and to throw jabs at Jim. It does NOT make her look good....it makes her look petty.
Stick with Gretchen...she's obviously a loyal, true friend and she will never stab you in the back. Best of luck to you!
You need to watch the film again...yes, Jeana put her hands behind Tamara as if she might ...she did touch her!
Are you serious when you wrote the Peggy should have told you that she dated Jim!!!! It seems like her should have told you especially since you claim to tell each other everything. You should really rad you blog and realize how you come off. You never talk the blame for anything you act like you and you husband are perfect and can do no wrong. You have made tons of comments about Tamara and Peggy on camera and on your blog. Which i guess is fine since you felt like you were no longer friend with Tamara but weren't you friend with Peggy when you visited her after surgery then said nasty thing about her boobs behind her back to the camera. You need to take a long hard look at yourself and how you seem on the show and you blog and stop trying to spin everything to make it look like others.
Alexis...stay strong, you know who your true friends are, it's Gretchen. I saw you also had your friends over before the party, keep on doing what you are doing for you and your family. Furthermore, you found out who Tamra and Vickie were right off the bat and you took no "wooden nickles" from them. Don't worry honey, Peggy is dilusional and will soon find out the real Tamra! Keep the faith.
Alexis you may not have seen it but Peggy admitted that she sent Tamara over to confront Jeana. Tamara should not have done that at Vicki's party. It was disruptive (that's Tamara's middle name). A friend does not throw a friend under the bus. Jim married you. He did not marry Peggy (for a VERY GOOD reason). Peggy's husband will find out why Jim did not marry Peggy soon enough. Do not let Peggy push your buttons. Keep your eyes on God and the plans that He has for you and your family.
Shouldn't your husband have told you that he dated Peggy? It seems odd that you expected Peggy to tell you that. Jim should have told you that as soon as the two of you became friends. I think your anger is pointed at the wrong person...
Hi Alexis, although we think differently about religion and woman's "role in the home", you are soooo right about Peggy. Peggy is constantly trying to create drama and pick fights with you. When the cameras roll she seems to have an instant need for attention. She's baiting you, girl, and although I know you feel you should stick up for yourself (and to some degree you should), you need to let more of it go. Let it roll off your back more often, and try to be more cognizant of saying things that other people will perceive as you trying to one-up them. If you keep letting Peggy get to you, she'll keep doing it. Stay above it - don't let those scantily clad drama addicts bring you down.
On the second page of your blog when you are talking about Jim not going to Vicki's party with you, you say that you don't care if Jim goes with you or not....But I'm confused because when you went to Peggy's party, you were not able to handle being there without him and you ended up crying over it for hours. So either you can handle going to parties without him or you can't? You don't care if he goes with you or you do? Which is it?
I love you Alexis!! You are right about Tamra & Peggy! i call them two peas in a pod...hope to see you next season!!
It does seem Peggy was hell bent on calling you out on every little thing, making mountains out of molehills everytime you were together: forced drama. And those constant side-looks! Weird. You explained the Tamara wine throwing perfectly. My sentiments exactly. I so hope Jeana and her family come back next year. She IS and was the voice of reason.
You are a class act Alexis. I love you on the show. Never change. Jim and your kids are very lucky. You never lie and you don't start drama. God bless you.
I didn't care for you at all at first, now I think you are one of the best! And, I adore your husband and wish he had been on the show more. He's so funny and I love men with a sense of humor!My husband makes me laugh and that is very important in a marriage. I do think marriage is a partnership, not one in charge over another. You are right about Tamra-she totally lied about what happened. Did she forget the whole thing was caught on film?! Hope to see you back in season 7 and, I am going to order your black maxi dress you wore to san Diego--great job!
Peggy brings out very strange behavior in you. It seems like jealousy, but who knows? Digs and oneupmanship ... Let me also tell you that a "liberal marriage" can work out well too. My husband and I are equal decision makers and divide up the duties according to our strengths. We have such a comfortable and fun environment in which to raise our kids. Nobody is on eggshells! Our daughter is certainly not learning to subordinate herself!
I find it odd that you would blame Peggy for keeping a secret from you, yet totally disregard that your husband kept the same secret. Surely he owed you the truth more than she did. You admit in your blog that you were trying to one up her (though you hid behind the word "subconsciously")~ have you admitted it to Peggy yet? I give her credit for trying over and over to figure out what was going on with you. I would have dropped you as a friend a lot quicker.
