Alexis addresses her situation with Peggy.

on Jun 15, 20110

A few notes on Part II. Yes, I did suffer from postpartum. It's not a laughing matter, it's not something someone can just make up, and my postpartum was actually diagnosed before Peggy's. The fact that Tamra would try to make fun of someone else's misfortunes again shows her character. Postpartum is not something someone is excited to have, or something someone wants to go brag about. It's also not something someone would try to compete about with a friend...I mentioned my postpartum in SEVERAL interviews for other media outlets in the past whenever questions prompted my postpartum to be discussed. My first year of doing this show, the problems with my postpartum never came up. And yes, I had an eating disorder too, but I'm not questioning Gretchen's sincerity just because my eating disorder has been discussed last month and now Gretchen is out talking about her past eating disorder. A reality show is only a snip-it of your entire life, and if neither of my past problems are currently occurring, why would they necessarily come up from the start? 

I did recognize after watching this entire season unfold, that it seems I made several harsh comments towards Peggy. Doing a reality show is very introspective, so after really soul searching as to why I would ever act the way I did towards Peggy, I have come to this conclusion. From the minute Peggy asked me to turn her name in to the producers (yes, SHE came  to ME about WANTING to be on the show, I never ASKED Peggy to try out), Peggy became a different person. The best example of this is when she KNEW Jim was not going to show up to her dinner party, and she walks up to me seeing that I'm already having a hard time answering all of the questions about where Jim is and says, "Alexis, where' s Jim? Oh please, he knew about this a month ago..." So instead of my friend covering for me, or helping me when I'm already struggling, Peggy pours salt in my wounds for her five minutes of fame. So with that said, every single time we filmed together, Peggy constantly looked for things to be mad at me about. She was constantly trying to stir the pot for airtime.  She was quickly becoming a drama queen. I was also harboring a little anger about the fact that when I first got this show, Peggy made snide remarks to me about how she can't believe I would ever do the show, that it was something she would NEVER do. So for her to be that rude to me last year about doing the show, and then all the sudden deciding it was the cool thing to do and try out this year... It just didn't sit well with me. Add that to the fact that she was constantly out in the press talking about how I didn't turn her name in because I didn't want her to steal the spotlight. Well hello, Peggy, it's FIVE of us on this show, so it's impossible for you to steal anyone's spotlight. We all have 1/5 of the spotlight, sweetie pie. In the back of my head I was also still upset that she had kept her past relationship with Jim from me. In my mind I was ticked off because here I had forgiven Peggy for keeping a HUGE secret from me, and she was constantly reminding me that I didn't turn her name in for the show, which is something I fully admitted and apologized to her for over and over again. I was so worried about this show wrecking our friendship, and it did just that. It's really sad because true friendships should be able to endure anything. However a reality show will bring anyone's true colors out. Isn't it funny that we were close as ever last year BEFORE she got on the show, but this year, now that she is on the show, our friendship is over?

Alexis I actually feel sorry for you because you don't or CAN'T seem to appreciate the simple things in life, and it really bugs me when I have to watch scene after scene of the show of you trying to go one better than your so called "friends" if they mention their child walked at 11months instead of letting whoever it be enjoy recalling such moments you have to jump in straight away with a reply like ooh my child was singing, dancing and walking at 9months!! It is PATHETIC to see a grown woman just wanting to be above everyone all the time it's really off putting as real friends dont act this way. I think it was very odd how you held so much Venom for Peggy once you found out your husband and her dated briefly in the past, so what girlfriend you shouldn't feel insecure about this if you know Jim Loves you 110% so why let it ruffle your feathers? Trust me you have very little to moan about in Life so start treating people with more respect and you might find people warm to you more when they start to believe your being sincere towards them! Money in my opinion is not good in abundance as people turn into self absorbed heartless humans who do nothing but want want want!! Being materialistic is never attractive and either was seeing you disrespect that poor woman who made that beautiful dress for you and for her to have you storm in with scissors and hack the the sleeves off the dress she had obviously spent hours and hours putting together to me as a viewer that was just totally mean!! By the way the sleeves made that dress stunning without them it was nothing special so next time take a step back and remind yourself that these stylists and designers have spent years learning their craft in the fashion industry so show them the respect you expect from others, if you find yourself in a similar situation in the future. Lets be honest your no fashionista just because you can afford nice clothes from the worlds best designers, and before you can think of yourself in this league you need exceptionally good taste and need to have an eye for what women will want to wear and you clearly have alot to learn as you didnt even know what "couture" meant, which was amusing!! I think its about time you stop and think about other peoples feelings apart from your own! Can't remember the bible asking us all to act like selfish individuals, and just because you go to church this does in NO WAY mean that you are a good person in my eyes! To be seen as a decent person you need to show respect to everyone as nobody is below you in life, we all come into the world in the same way and we all go out the same way! As you are now a mother to your beautiful children then you need to remind yourself their eyes see everything and their ears hear everything so it's your job to ensure the children grow up showing Love and respect to everyone and that manners cost nothing in life!! Dont let them see a negative role model for their sake as nobody wants their kids to grow up being nasty and disrespectful so remember you do lead a very blessed life so appreciate that and STOP with the attitude as it's showing you in a very bad light. :-)

Alexis!  Hi there!  Jodie from Texas here.  Don't listen to this ppl.  You just need to worry about you being happy.  Yes, Jim is controlling and you are always trying to make him happy, but that is what you choose to do.  I think you're great and if anything...tell Tamra to take a hike where the sun don't shine!!!  They are all just jealous!  Vicki seems cool, but the others, HATERS!!!!  Keep up the great work but get rid of Tamra.

Alexis you and Gretchen are the best looking ladies on the show,,1st you and then Gretchen. You can best believe that Vicki is and always was jealous of you the firs t time she saw you,,it's so obvious. Just keep being you and a great christian mom & hot wife. Next time you are at the reunion don't answer the questions you don't want to answer that are too private.. especially about you and your husband and your personal finances that is too much info...Hang in there. Vicki can't help being mean, she has to look at you everything she is not.

Alexis, You are stunning, loving, intelligent and have genuine marital and parental values. Good for you for standing up for your husband! My husband and I just celebrated our 19th Anniversary. I see your marriage values being similar to ours. Keep it up - some of the others clearly don't value their marriages AT ALL to walk away over what...spilled milk? Well spilled milk happens in any marriage. You've got it right Lady. Don't ever lower yourself to the lesser, more "desperate" class. You are wonderfully made ;o)

It has been so clear to me Alexis you suffer from insecurities. You are always so fake about your friendships with all the ladies and I sense due to the amount of surgeries and face reconstructions, you are not secure with anything, People like you need a REAL REALITY CHECK and it is OK to bring your self down a few notches and STOP BRINGING GOD into EVERYTHING! I LITERALLY record the show jsut so I can fast forward your scenes. You use to be very ugly and your surgery AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE IS SO SAD! Yeah, it's clear you are STILL UGLY on the inside too! JIM SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH SMOKIN HOT PEGGY

Alexis stay strong and believe in your own marriage. The other women are not in your shoes so don't let them get to you about negativity about your husband. If your marriage works don't worry about what others think.

You have class and I love you being ditsy sometimes, at least it is honest.

Alexis if Peggy did stalk your husband, which I don't think she did, do you really think your controlling husband would allow you to be friends with her? I think you need to ask him what really went down.

Hi, I've been watching in the UK. I wasn't sure about you at first but actually feel you are not all that bad! Maybe you just need think before speaking and not jump straight into things. Jim's actions towards you, I feel, is that he is taking advantage of you (and yes, there are similar characteristics with Simon). You can still be the doting wife but he should show you more respect instead of bossing you around, taking advantage of you etc. It almost looked as if you were thinking more about his actions in the second reunion. Keep your heart and eyes open :)

I think that jim should have told you about him and peggy but do you think that maybe its a little harsh to hate peggy since you found out about the relationship? I know you will probably denie hateing peggy but thats the way it comes across so maybe you should stop talking about her and start being more friendly . also she was probably worried about jim not coming to her party because she might have thought he was avoiding her?

I agree your husband should have told you about peggy. I feel you came across as green eyed towards peggy, some of the comments you made towards her, i felt really sorry for her. I am also team Peggy, Tamra and vicki

WOW Alexis, dont u thik Jim should have told you the moment he found out you knew Peggy, Marriage is about telling each other everything even the things that hurt, so don't blame Peggy, to be honest I think Jim told Peggy not to tell you, so I think you are blaming the wrong person

One day, when you've split up with Jim and no longer have that force of control held over you, you will look back on your behaviour on this show and cringe.

WE have not seen the episode where you discovered that Jim and Peggy had once been an " Item ", I think we only get an edited version of the show, but I do agree with other comments that Jim should have told you the truth, Did it boost his ego to see that you would end up arguing about him. I think Tamra is a wicked spiteful person and would not want her for a friend on a desert island!! In my opinion Gretchen is the most honest person on the show and I would take her over any of the others. As for Vicky, well she has got her comeuppance, after all that expense and lovey dovey of retaking their vows her money would have been better spent on hiring a manager for her business and spending more time with Donn who does seem to be a very nice person.

Alexis please stop using the Lords name in Vain to cover up your behaviour, towards people. You are arrogant, always competing with peggy,attension seeking and delusional about your marriage. The way you treated your designer, by cutting up the dress was out of order there are ways to address someone without making them feel small. Just because your husband does it to you do not create a dominoe effect outside of your home. Be honest with yourself; millons of people watch how you behave and contradict yourself. Wish you peace, as im sure you are a nice person but ham it up for the cameras.

I wonder if you've lost your way. You seemed quite interesting when you first joined the show, but you quickly decided you were part of 'team Gretchen', and that seems to have shaped much of your experience. You would have had way more fun, and been more fun, if you had taken your time getting to know everyone.

Getting Peggy on was really a test of your friendship. If you had any reservations about her as a friend, you really shouldn't have put her name forward, or you shouldn't have stayed after she joined. Even the best of friendships can't withstand that kind of scrutiny! I don't even refer my friends to my hairdresser - they might talk crap about me, and put her in a horrible situation because if she tells me it'll affect my relationship with her and with them. So take the lessons about your judgment and move on. As a fellow Christian I'd like you to portray us in a positive light, rather than bitching, moaning etc and going on about God's endless capacity to forgive YOU (and by implication no-one else!).

Take care AP

Alexis, you are one of the nicest housewives on the show, along with Jeana and Gretchen. I have just watched Episode 11 here in England - the one about Peggy's dinner party. I felt sick to my stomach at the way Tamra, Eddie, Vicki and Donn made jokes at the dinner table about you being in the bathroom. Tamra is in a new relationship, she should be happy and glowing and just be over-flowing with joy, instead she eavesdrops outside the bathroom door while you and Gretchen were inside. Vicki forgets to take the ''high road'' yet again and this puppet-master pulls Tamra's strings very subtly. Vicki is one nasty person and she has groomed Tamra well. I always like Donn, I thought he was a decent man. But he was definitely not at this dinner party. And viewers were given to understand that Eddie was such a nice, level-headed man, he was joining in the nasty laughter at your expense and Gretchen. It made me sick, and I can no longer work out why I watch the programme. We do not have anything like it here in England, many of our soaps on tv are boring and depressing, but this episode of RHOC was really nasty. Do you need to be with people like this? What goes round comes round in life to take care. I wish you well in life.

Alexis, I think you need to watch Runaway Bride and take some notes! It seems like you don't know who you are, and want to please your husband so much you have molded into him. You do seem like you have a good heart, I think you just need to really look inside and practice what you preach! Peggy truly showed she cared about you, and you were spiteful to her every chance you got. Sometimes friendships get like that, but your an adult and if you truly care about someone you talk and get past things! I think you have the potential to be a great person if you were just you!

Girl! Don't worry about Peggy. She was trying to make up reasons to fight with you. She is jealous, jealous, jealous! You were not trying to one-up her all season...it is called having a conversation. You talk back & forth. She is jealous & a mean girl...she belongs with Tamara! Mary MAC

Alexis you are so full of yourself it is disgusting. You call yourself a Christian but one would never know by looking at how you dress, and the things that come out of your mouth! Instead of shifting blame on others, you should just ask for forgiveness from someone who feels you have hurt them. But you trash Peggy and others and add to the whole disgusting drama. None of you women have any class.

Alexis, you have a heart, and even a brain, though sometimes you go into like la-la-land. Example: Peggy doesn't have to tell you a THING about her knowing your husband from before. It is up to your husband who married you, who is your partner, the father of your children the one that made a commitment to you, to tell you> PERIOD. Peggy wasnt' wrong not to tell you. Peggy is wrong on other levels, but not this one. Honestly, I dont think that Peggy is totally 100% sincere and can get quite confused and twist things around quickly. Good luck in your line, even if i were a stick like you, i would never wear such a short dress. Seems the clothes line is only for you. Good luck

Alexis,

Out of everything I have ever heard and seen on the Housewives, I found your comments regarding women the MOST offensive. "THe problem with the world today, is that woman think they can do whatever men can do...." Frankly, I am surprised Bravo did not address it. God gave us all gifts, and some woman were given skills and intelligence. I realize those weren't the gifts that God has given you, but don't begrudge other woman for utlizing those gifts from God and going out into the world with them. You are the reason that people view Christians as hypocritical and comdening, because you pick and choose parts of the Bible to thrust them at everyone else, rather than using the Bible as a tool to frame your own life the way that God intended. You are superficial and you spend time and money worshipping your body, but you don't seem to Judge yourself for that. I am a female attorney, and I use those gifts to help people everyday. I think you should apoligize to your gender.

If Peggy was really Jim's stalker why would your controlling husband allow you to be friends with her? It's strange how that all of a sudden came up at the end of show. Sounds made up and fabricated on your part.

Really though God forgives for lies you tell.

Alexis; you have enhanced your natural beauty, have expendable income above more than the average woman, are blessed with healthy children, have ample household/childcare and you can creatively become an entrpreneaur whereas most women must work to keep their household afloat. I think you are immensley fortunate so why must you act so catty, rude and seemingly unchristian to costars? Do you ever think that your children will grow to become as classist as you? Please set the example of a positive role model despite the Producers thirst for nastiness. With your wealth and access you could be a great role model-try it you might find it refreshing, thought provoking and your mark as a strong women would be positive for teens and young women!

Alexis, I think that this peggy thing started when you found out your husband dated her.. understandable it's like they laugh at your face I would feel the same way and that's why you are always saying negative things about her without making it look so obvious.. I have also notice you hate that someone else has a similiar problem or situation it's normal than when a couple of women are chatting to come up with things they have come to in the past even if it's a similiar situation as yours don't be so angry to have similiar problems as the other ladies...

JIM AND ALEXIS, ALL THAT MATTERS IS HOW MUCH YOU LOVE EACH OTHER. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED 25 YEARS TO THE SAME WONDERFUL MAN, HE IS MY BEST FRIEND, MY LOVE, AND MY HUSBAND, I HAVE A MARRIAGE WERE THEN MAN IS THE HEAD OF THE HOUSE, HE GOSE OUT AND WORKS, I STAY HOME AND CLEAN AND COOK AND TAKE CARE OF HIM. I DON'T HAVE ALOT OF WOMEN FREINDS BECAUSE OF IT, I THINK A WOMANS PLACE IS AT HOME TAKING CARE OF THE HOUSE, THE KIDS, NOT OUT WORKING AND TAKING A JOB WAY FROM A MAN YOU NEEDS THAT JOB TO TAKE CARE OF HIS FAMILY, BUT THAT DOES NOT WORK FOR ALL WOMEN, AND I RESPECT THAT, THEY JUST NEED TO RESPECT MY WAY AS WELL. SO DON'T LET VICKI AND TAMRA CAUSE PROMBLES, THEY JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT MARRIAGE IS ALL ABOUT, THEY HAVE BEEN MARRIED TWICE AND DIVORCED TWICE. TAMRA TALKS ABOUT JIM BEING CONTROLLING, THAT SIMON TRIED TO CONTROL HER, BY TELL HER HOW TO ACT AND HOW TO TALK, WELL EVERY SHOW ALL I SEE IS EDDIE TELL HER HOW SHE SHOULD ACT AND HOW SHE SHOULD SAY THINGS, I GUESS IT IS EASIER TO TAKE FROM A MUCH YOUNGER MAN WHO AS MONEY. THAN THEIR IS VICKI AND TAMRA TALKING ABOUT SLADE AND IS CHILD SUPPORT AND HOW HE IS A DEAD BEAT DAD, WELL NOW VICKI'S NEW MAN IS A DEAD BEAT DAD AND A DRUNK, AND TAMRA HOOKED THEM UP, SHE HAD NO PROMBLE HOOKING HER BEST FRIEND UP WITH A DEAD BEAT DAD, AND THAN SAYING HE IS A WONDERFUL, AND HOW HE LIVES AND WORKS WITH EDDIE, THAN TAMRA IS ON THE SHOW SAYING HOW SIMON IS A DEAD BEAT DAD WHO HAS NOT PAID HIS CHILD SUPPORT, BUT HIS IS A GOOD FATHER. BUT SLADE WHO IS TRYING TO GET WORK AND PAY FOR MEDICAL BILLS AND DEAL WITH HIS SON'S ILLNESS, IS A POOR FATHER, A DEAD BEAT, I THINK IF THOSE TWO LADIES WOULD LOOK MORE CLOSELY AT THEIR OWN LIVES AND WORK TO FIX OR CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BETTER, THEY WOULD NOT BE IN OTHER PEOPLE'S BUINESS AND THEIR LIVES WOULD NOT BE SO OUT OF CONTROL. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, WISH YOU ALL THE BEST AND STAY TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE AND HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH.

Toward the end of the reunion show,you seemed a little smug after receiving the text from Jim where he said Peggy was a "stalker", & that she broke into his house years ago. Point being..why would Jim allow you to be friends with someone that he had a horrible opinion about? Peggy brought it up to your husband 3 times so that he could handle it as your husband. I understand about keeping your pasts "in the past",but the second you were to befriend her,HE should have told you,so you could form your own opinion on wether you still wanted to hang out with her or not. Best wishes & hope everything works out with everyone!!

You've mentioned several times about Peggy wanting the spotlight. It's obvious that the any attention given to another housewife is attention taken away from you. Your last comment on the reunion show was embarrassing to watch - it showed your jealousy and insecurity. You're still very young and maybe this season can be a year of growth. I'd love to see some of those Christian ideals you profess to live by become more integrated in your life.

the way i see it theres three sides to each story. Peggys side, Jims side, and then the truth. I understand how complicated this situation was not only on your marrige but aswell as your friendship. As a true christian you should stop worrying about all the drama and adding fuel to the fire and fix it. I cant believe you would continue to trash your "friend" but then be upset when she defends herself. Last season you came across a good two shoes and now your claws came out. You prove this meaning right Alexis "keep your friends close, but your enemies closer".

Turn the other cheek, sweetheart! Use your faith to stregnthen relationships. If you talk the Bible, live the Bible. Dont use it to justify actions or lifestyles. I find that a bit fake. I did find you very catty & challanging this season. What gives?? From last season to this season you have made an ugly turn for such a pretty lady. I found it extremely catty & childish when you called in to Watch What Happens when Peggy was on just to air dirty laundry & call her out. Thats "stealing someones thunder" in my book. I'm a bit disturbed on your marriage. From what I witnessed this season your husband was not supportive at all. I have had my husband in tons of situations he'd rather not be in, yet he's was by my side at every single one. Because HE SUPPORTS ME! He would never bail out because someone said mean, hurtful things about him. He's there with me, and can tough it out for me because he loves & respects me and my relationships with others. I hope your husband can do the same for you. You deserve it, dont you?
