Alexis was shocked by Peggy's comments in Vegas.

on May 22, 20110

Thank goodness we had such a fun, happy episode last week in San Antonio! I had so much fun and loved being with those three girls!

This week when we see Donn and Vicki in their home setting, it felt so odd. I truly feel so sad for Vicki and Donn. I know that neither of them wishes to be in the place they are, yet somehow they ended up there. It seems they are so short with each other and living such separate lives. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, nor would I wish divorce on anyone. I know they are both hurting, and they are both good people. This is a rough time for them, so I cannot comment on where they are in their lives.

When Vicki and Tamra go out for cocktails, it is so hard to hear what Vicki has to say about her marriage. It's just so, so sad. It's really disappointing to hear Tamra and Vicki's comments on Dylan, my assistant. Why do they constantly pick on people that aren't even on the show? Dylan filmed three times, and my husband only a few times, but for some reason Dylan and Jim are the topics of conversation. Dylan is just an innocent bystander in this whole story, and he doesn't have a mean bone in his body. So to hear all the negative things said about him (and the gay community in general) just ticks me off. Are Tamra and Vicki that miserable that they must insult Dylan to make themselves feel better? Actually, they insult anyone who isn't around them at that moment.

Then Micah says he doesn't understand why I would have an assistant. Micah would never understand why I have an assistant, because he is never be as busy as I am. Micah claims he hates it when:

"Everybody's trying to be something they are not."

"Everybody's caught up."

"Everybody's trying to keep up with the Jones'. Live within your means."

How could you think Vicki was ruining your fashion show when you runined Peggys with your crying over your husband! Thats hypocritical all the way!

Girl.....Peggy is SO jealous of you! I cannot believe that you are friends with her. Did you see the episodes??? She went behind your back at the very beginning and tried to act like you had a problem with her. Unbelievable. Love your look but most importantly is your walk with God. Vicky loves the Lord as well but seems to make it hush hush on the show but it did come out at the end. AWESOME! I honestly think that you and Vickie could be good friends if it weren't for Tamra. I think Tamra & Peggy should be friends. ha Stay true & hope you & Jim & kids are well. :-)

Totally agree that you were hyper critical of Tamra checking on a friend in the hospital at your fashion luncheon, but conveniently forget your own behavior at Peggy's? And how can you fall apart about Jim not attending dinner with you, but take off for San Antonio without him? You appeared to handle that just fine.To be so much of a self professed Christian, you seem to take liberties with the truth.

Hello!!!!!! Alexis you and Gretchen thought that vicki bleeding and being in the hospital during your party was rude, well at least that was medical. You also said that it was rude that tamera kept getting up to talk to her was rude, well do you not remember that during peggys beautiful dinner and gretchen were being very rude getting up like little middle school girls to go cry about your husband. Come on now, and then you get up in front of everyone to tell them how much you miss him and steal the light from peggy (like always) now that was rude. So the next time you want people tp respect your party maybe you should repect theirs and not act like a child

You spend way to much time trying to be perfect and way to little time with your children or even talking about them. How sad it must be for your little ones not to have their mother to raise them but a nanny. Good luck with that when they get older. Quit acting like your so much better than Peggy I think your a little jealous her husband is cuter..

really vikki personally calls and tells you that she is on her way to the hospitol and then gretchen puts a bug in your ear that she may be lying. shame on you. wanting to even relish in the idea of her faking it is showing that you have no faith in a person for what their word is. just see gretchen as who she is. putting anyone down that disagrees with her and in child like ways is just showning her true self. see the good in people.

I want you to realize what I saw, from an outsider looking in... Gretchen was the one who was causing the problems with the luncheon. The dresses were fabulous, everything looked great. Unfortunately your "friend" Gretchen was ruining everything by going on and on insinuating that Vicki was faking it just to get attention. That is the absolute strangest thing I have ever heard someone say on the show. You can't fake emergency surgery for attention like that. Gretchen was the one ruining the lunch by making such a big deal about her faking it. Tamra wasn't rude for being worried. How in the world can you hide your feelings until after the luncheon is over. When someone you care about is facing emergency surgery, you can't just push intense feelings of worry under the rug until it is convenient. I was very disappointed in Gretchen. She is no friend of yours if that's the way she tries to be your friend. I'm starting to see her in a different light this year. I think Tamra may have been right about her all along.

Alexis: I don't know your real motivation for being on the show. However, with friends like those on the show, you don't need enemies. I personally after this season can't continue to watch the show. And as you know everything has a season. Word to wise (hope you have wisdom): Don't cast your pearls before swine; come out from among them.

May God give you discernment and guidence.

Alexis,

I'd admire you for speaking out so strongly about your faith on the show. Good job. You were on my heart as I was praying this morning. I'm doing a Beth Moore bible study on the book of Daniel and it's amazing. I would highly encourage you to get it. You can get it off christianbookstore.com. Her study focuses on the fact that we live in a "Babylon-like culture, full of wealth, self-absorption, and excessiveness. Sound like Orange County? The culture is always trying to influence us and our challenge is to ask "How do we live in this kind of self-absorption and decadence and not become defiled by it? "How do we become spiritually relevant and stay culturally relevant in the midst of it?" It's a fascinating study that I think would be relevant to where you are in your life right now. You will be so blessed by it! Take care.

Alexis ... regarding Vicki and going to hospital before your "fashion" show...you had a chance to show your love for God and express concern or even led a prayer for Vicki. Compression wins over anger or "gossppinest" any time. What you showed was vainess in thinking about how it ruined your fashion show. How sad.

Hi Alexis, Your dresses are beautiful, good for you, getiing to use your talents, & not lost as a housewife. You have beautiful, happy children. I'm saying this with respect & kindness, but do try to get enough time with your kids. Time may seem slow right now, as you do the small daily tasks of caring for your children. Yet, time will start to speed up & before you know it your kids will be grown ups. I hope I don't sound to opinionated or judgemental, but I'm speaking from experience of trying to do both, & some business ventures just take way too much time. I truly wish you the best.

I think part of the reason Peggy thinks you are so competitive is that she is a little stuck on herself (although at times I see where she is coming from). I hope some of the negative energy between you two dies though. Whenever a relationship goes sour, it is never entirely one persons fault. The best thing to do is learn from it and move on. I'm glad that you have Gretchen as a friend. You can trust her completely. She will always have your back and will never say things about you behind your back that she wouldn't say to your face.

Vicki works around the clock, and now that her maritial problems around the time have come to light, you should feel terrible for not being more concerned about her health! Dress line and fashion show or not, health always comes first! Gretchen seems to have rubbed you even further into a hole! So if you were in the hospital at say Gretchen's bag event, how would YOU want others to react? And even though people bash Jim, I can't seem him thinking being in the hospital was rude on Vicki's part and wouldn't have been happy by your reaction...

You're such a great person in so many ways, but you play that ridiculous "one-up" game with Peggy in regard to your kids. Words of good intent and from the heart...it would be great if you could be more aware of your actions and words. The next time someone is sharing something exciting about their children why not listen to and congratulate them without mentioning your kids. Let someone express their excitement without trying to take away from their moment. Your kids will have many more achievements you can share at another time.

Hey Alexis ..... my daughter and I think you're refreshingly fabulous in looks and personality! You are just a down home kinda girl that really tries to be a decent person and when you slip up a bit, you own it and try to make it right. Good luck on your clothing line. I'd love to be able to wear those clothes but just don't have the bod for it anymore ..... but my daughter does and I expect she'll add some of items to her wardrobe when they're available.

As a physician let me make something clear to you and your friend Gretchen. A bleeding ulcer is not something that can be faked. As Gretchen stated in her interview that Vicki had two months of pain why wait now to do something about it. When an ulcer starts to bleed , a person can become anemic and that can transition into something life threatening. As a person Alexis, you should have been able to come to that decision on your on. Regardless of how well or how long Gretchen has known these women, some facts are just common sense. This was definitely a no brainer.

TEAM DYLAN...... I agree with you on this one...... what Tamara said about him is UGLY...... she has a lot of nerve to be picking on Dylan.... he has done NOTHING for her to speak that way about someone she does not even know..... My love to Dylan he seems to be a great assistant to you.... Bravo... lol

Alexis, so many people wish they had a man who works,runs the household, genuinely love their wife, and support their wife. Peggy showed she was not a true friend by entertaining women who clearly had no respect for you. That is not a friend. When people walk around like their lives are perfect (V and P), there is usually an unhappiness within. Keep doing what you are doing. I must add one thing, if the people who attended your clothes viewing did not like the clothes, at least you gave them the option to write it down...instead of talking trash!! GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING.

Alexis, I like all of you ladies, but I have to say, I was surprised and shocked even, when you and Gretchen didnt express concern for Vicky when she went into the hospital. I was more worried about Gretchen and her comments. I pray and hope Vickie is doing better and gets well soon. bleeding is not a good sign regardless. I like some of your dresses, but a few were too short for my taste. Just sayin.

Alexis, When you interrupted Peggy's dinner party over foolishness; you wanted support from the ladies. You didn't leave instead you caused a big scene. But when the situation is reversed you felt Tamara should have left instead of causing a scene..hmm? Then you think there's some ulterior motive behind someone going to the hospital. Do you really think Vicki would go that far to being admitted (I could see if she was at home saying she was sick)? Honestly I don't think Vicki would miss work by getting admitted into the hospital just to steal away attention from your fashion show.

Alexis - I feel like you and Gretchen at least attempt to be honest -- if I recall Peggy and her husband's house is in foreclosure -- so he may run 7 businesses but doesn't sound like they are doing well. I saw Gretchen on Andy Cohen afterwards and it all made more sense -- eg if Tamra was so worried - why not just leave; and also Gretchen went to see Vicki and Gretchen didn't - anyway I liked some of your clothes and look forward to seeing more - and as for your assistant -- if you need someone and can pay them why does anyone else care? (PS - I notice Vicki has an assistant. . . ) :)

Since you started the show you have been one of my favorites. However, this season I have noticed some changes in you that I don't like. For one, you seem to have this i'm better than everyone else attitude going on and in your blogs you make it a point to try and make everyone else look stupid and put them down in some way or another. Also, it is so obvious that you have some jealousy issues toward Peggy. You may not realize it but everyone sees that you are not happy for her being on the show. I think you wanted to once again, put her down and act like you were better than her because you were on tv and you can't stand the fact that she is now a housewife. I'm just saying that's definitely how things look. Peggy has tried to be good to you and talk through the issues but you just continue to shut her out. You talk about the Lord all the time and as a Christian myself I can tell you that there are way more important things to worry about then being better than everyone else. That doesn't make you who you are. Good luck with your dress line. I think you may want to work on your website a little though...there's not much to choose from and all the pictures you have on there makes it seem like you are trying to use your position on this show to sell dresses.

@CandaceMichelle totally agree with your comments, Alexis was just as disruptive and upset at Peggy's dinner party and doesn't appear to have the same compassion for Tamra who was in a much more serious situation...

Hi Alexis! I'm really enjoying you this season, I've always liked you, just better this time around. I too find it disturbing when they talk about Dylan. He seems like such a nice guy. They think they're being funny, but I don't appreciate it. It looks like Micah is trying to be one of the busy-body girls. Good luck with your dress line, I'm sure it will be a huge success! Your kids are adorable!

I am a fan of yours and I also live in Missouri, midwest girls always know the connection we each have. I wonder, however, if Tamara had left, if it would have then been a big deal that she was leaving your event. You thought it was rude of her to stay and keep tabs on Vicki but on the other end, would you have thought it rude if she had left the showing to check on her friend. Seems like a lose/lose situation for Tamara. I think the bad feelings have a way of just making anything she does seem incorrect. Hang in there and good luck with your line!
