Alexis gives us the lowdown on her photo shoot.

I feel horrible for ruining her party, and I told her I was so sorry. It's honestly a pet peeve of mine when people disrupt a party or an event. Had Peggy been honest from the beginning of the evening and been there to support me in a sad moment, I probably would have been fine. I'm 34 years old and I can honestly say that I don't ever remember behaving that way at someone's event. I did everything in my power not to lose control of my emotions, but my emotions got the best of me for three reasons: my lying upon arrival, then Peggy questioning where Jim was when she knew why he wasn't there, and then from hearing the rest of the group sitting at the table, snickering and laughing at my expense.

Moving on to the limo ride with Peggy, Tamra, and Vicki on the way to the winery. It's so comical to me that my husband is barely in any scene this season, yet he is still the topic of the other women's conversation. They all say their hellos to each other, and low and behold, the topic turns to Jim. Is Jim really that interesting? I really do think it's funny. Vicki says Jim is "intimidated by smart women, and has no place in his world for entrepreneurial business owners." Well sorry, Vicki, most of our friends and family are intelligent, entrepreneurial business people, his very own sister is a labor law attorney, so once again you are wrong, dear. Jim doesn't choose to spend time around people who are mean to other people, that's not to be confused with intelligent people. But thanks, Vicki, for giving Jim the air time.

Then Tamra insists I want to "roll around in Peggy's sheets" or that I seem competitive with Peggy. First off, eww, I would not find it fun to roll around the sheets with any other girl, but isn't it funny knowing what we know now about Tamra that Tamra chooses that analogy! Seriously though, there in nothing, nada, zilch, zero I want that Peggy has. Peggy is nine years older than me, we are two completely different people, and although at one time I thought she was a good person, there is nothing I want that is hers. In fact, it's the opposite. Our lives are different, the way we act is different, the way we dress is different, the way we treat people is different. I love my life, who I am, and everyone in my life. Enough said on that subject.

Now on to positive things! In this episode we see my photo shoot for Alexis Couture and Alexis Casual! Wow! I can't believe it's finally here. This new business of mine sure was more difficult than I expected, but the first dress, my black "Braid" maxi from Alexis Casual has done amazingly well! It's the dress I wore to San Diego with my family, and that dress flew off the shelves like hot cakes. You can order it now at for only $69.50, and we are offering it larger sizes as well. The rest of my line is launching this week. It's so exciting to bring dresses that I love to all of you.
