Alexis explains how she keeps her marriage working with Jim and questions Tamra's doubts about Brooks.

So when Vicki is at lunch with Brooks and he leaves her a card, I remembered a time when my husband and I were a new couple, and he sent me flowers almost every day. He wooed me. I smooched all over him. . .that was our infatuation period. I think it is what Vicki needs right now because her love tank was empty for so many years that it may take a few years of over-indulging to fully fill her tank again. Or perhaps that is just the type of man and relationship Vicki really needs. Who are we to judge that? Let Vicki be happy and love whomever she wants, and time will tell us Brooks' true colors.

Interviewing that panel of guests on my Fox Five segment was so enlightening considering I have three kids under the age of six. I don't like the thought of discussing sex with my innocent babies! You can view my full Fox Five segment of the Sexualization of Children on my Facebook page at "Alexis Bellino Verified Profile!" I love my Lifestyle Corespondent role at Fox Five! It is so exciting, yet challenging, and has opened so many other doors for me. I had my first acting role on General Hospital this week!!! YIPEEEEE! I had a great time with cast members Alexis, Spinelli, and Maurice! Kelly Monaco is an absolute sweetheart! And so tiny! I am blessed to be in such an amazing place in my life, and General Hospital was UNBELIEVABLY fun! My episode airs May 9th, so be sure to tune in to see what my role is!

My family dynamic has definitely changed over the past two years. When I first began with the Housewives, I never pictured my career being what it is today. I was at a place in my life where the kids were finally out of diapers, and I was ready to go back to part-time work, so I came aboard because I knew I could work a few months a year, and still be a mom first. You all know that Jim and I have always agreed that we have very different roles in our household. I was the caretaker inside the home, and he was the caretaker outside the home. I'm not saying this is how all marriages should be, but this is what works for our marriage.
